Top Ten Favorite Kisses in Cinematic History + Giveaway!

Hi everyone! Today, the author of International Kissing Club, Ivy Adams is here at Fragments of Life for the holidays! She’ll take over this Christmas while I’m away celebrating with my family. Hope you take time to read her post!
Around the World In 80 Kisses Smooch Stop #28

Merry Christmas everyone! Take a break from the all the eating and family gathering for another top ten list. Since my book is called The International Kissing Club I’m counting down my top ten favorite kisses in cinematic history.

 10. Prince Philip vanquished Maleficient as the fire-breathing dragon and then rushes into the castle to kiss Sleeping Beauty

 9. Bourne Identity - Marie makes the first move and kisses Matt Damon as Jason Bourne after he cuts her hair and after a moment of confusion and he cups the back of her head, plants one on her and all of the sudden I was “Ben who?”

 8. Dirty Dancing - Baby asks Johnny to “Dance with me” in his shabby little cabin - gah! It’s cheesy when I look back on it now, but I was 15 when this movie came out and it was so hawt!

7. Rhett threatens to kiss Scarlett, but doesn’t - Best non-kiss in movie history:

“No, I don’t think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly. That’s what’s wrong with you. You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.” {Um, yes please.}

 6.A Room With a View - When beautiful, golden George Emerson stalks across that sun-drenched field to take reticent, proper Lucy Honeychurch in his arms and kiss her passionately, I melted.

 5.The Notebook - Come on, you have to have a heart of stone to not love THAT kiss.

4.The Empire Strikes Back - Han Solo kisses Princess Leia aboard the malfunctioning Millenium Falcon while proclaiming he’s really a nice guy (though we all know she prefers him as a scoundrel)

3.Say Anything - Lloyd Dobbler kisses Diane Court in the rain. Iconic.
(The picture is not the actual - I got it from Sodahead!)

 2.Sixteen Candles - Jake Ryan! A birthday cake and a glass dining table. Perfect.

 1.The Princess Bride - "Since the invention of the kiss there have been five kisses that were rated the most passionate, the most pure. This one left them all behind. The End."

The International Kissing Club by Ivy Adams is the story of four best friends: Piper, Cassidy, Mei, and Izzy--the misfits of Paris, Texas. Their whole lives, they’ve dreamed of escaping small-town life and seeing the world. So when Piper is the victim of an embarrassing prank that goes viral online, she gets the idea that the girls should escape via the school’s international exchange program, in search of fun, love and internet redemption.
Shellee Roberts along with Emily McKay and Tracy Deebs write under the pseudonym Ivy Adams. They shop, gossip and watch movies in Austin, Texas.

  9. one of the best kisses for me was from the movie the notebook and a walk to remember... :)

  11. I'm torn between Pride and Prejudice(2005) starring Keira Knightley and Matthew McFadyen (the scene was incredibly done and so sweet) and P.S. I Love You starring Gerard Butler and Hilary Swank. (Their Ireland's kiss!, pure heaven) :)
