Book Beginning: How to Keep a Boy From Kissing You by Tara Eglington


This is a Friday Book Beginning post, a weekly meme hosted at Rose City Reader. For more info, click here.

How do you stop a guy from kissing you?

I know this sounds like a ridiculous question—obviously there are a multitude of options available to the almost-kissee. But Bradley Scott’s lips were eight inches away from mine and I was seriously in search of an etiquette-appropriate response. Without, you know, resorting to physical shoves, screams, or other emotionally scarring options.

Operation Stop Kiss, How to Keep a Boy From Kissing You by Tara Eglington

Now before you take me to blogging court because this is way longer than a sentence (ha! pun not intended!), hear me out for a bit.

I did it for you.

How would you feel if you knew I came across such an awesome beginning and didn’t share all of it? You would feel wronged, right? You would say, “Oh Jinan, how could you? How could you deprive me of this brilliant beginning? I CURSE YOU FOR ALL ETERNITY”. So, you know, to avoid that, I decided to share the whole thing.

*backs away slowly*

No cursing (or suing), k?

      I hope no one drags you there, then! I can’t imagine it would be a fun experience 😉

    I think you can get a pass on the more than a sentence just this once! I did love this beginning. The last sentence had me laughing. Hope you love it!

      Perhaps I’ll start sharing more than once sentence too, since apparently everyone does it and no one subpoenas them 😉
