K is for Kiss
Kisses. Kisses. Kisses. Kisses.
They surround our books, our movies, our music, and so much more--they surround our culture.
But I have to ask--is kissing really the best way to build a (book) believable relationship? They are an expression of love, but how do they fit if the love isn't there in the first place?
I cannot tell you how many movies I've seen (and books I've read) where these two people just randomly kiss, when you didn't even know they cared for each other in the first place.
They start out taking the time to get to know the couple, but then, once that foundation is laid, all the romance is is kissing.
So, I guess this is what I'm trying to say--are your characters ready to kiss?
