What if your first kiss was just plain awful? Virgin Kiss FREE Feb 12-15

jinaWhat if your first kiss, and I mean your VIRGIN KISS was just plain awful?

That’s what happened to Riley Murphy, a new student at Holywell High.

To overcome my shyness, my mom convinced me to try out for the Drama Club. Somehow I landed the leading role in a one-act Chekhov play. Yes, Chekhov. I played this mad, beautiful countess with passion and heart. I loved it. I came alive on stage. I could do anything, be anybody, say anything, I could—

—kiss the male lead?

A gangly sophomore named Luke Vanmeer with long greasy hair and an upper lip curled in a perpetual snarl? He was going to anoint my virgin lips with my first big kiss?

Forget the Altoids. I needed a stress pill.

I quit the play. They could find another dupe. Not me. I wasn’t going to let him use my lips for kissing practice.

Then I heard this little voice in my head telling me this was acting, right? Going through the motions at rehearsals and on stage didn’t count on the kissing scale. I could pucker up with him and still be a kissing virgin.

After that, I sailed through rehearsals, knowing my lines, and “connecting to my character,” according to the director, who insisted on method acting. That’s how the trouble started. We didn’t rehearse the kiss. He wanted a real kiss on stage, he said, not some phony smooch.

Find out what happens when Luke tries to embarrass Riley on stage in front of the whole school… VIRGIN KISS is FREE Feb 12-15th on Kindle!! VIRGIN KISS is a YA very short story.

      I remember mine and I was a little upset that the guy kissed me! The kiss I could have handled, but I wasn’t expecting the hands. I bet he thought twice about ever kissing another girl when I was done. 🙂
