30 Day Book Challenge: Day 20

Last year I found this book challenge (since then I have seen many variations of it, but I like this one best!), and have been intrigued about how I would answer the questions posed. Feel free to comment with your own answer or post the challenge to your own blog.

Favorite Kiss
My first book kiss this is my favorite...if you read the excerpt you can see why...I mean I think I read this book when I was 11...that's a pretty hot kiss for an 11 year-old!

Slumber Party Christopher Pike
    "You're right. But you're a cute case."
    "Really? No."
    They were debating life and death, forces beyond the physical universe, and she forgot it all when he told her she was cute. "You're cute, too," she said.
    He laughed, "Don't you think I know that?"
    She moved closer, careful not to light herself on fire, feeling suddenly brave. "No laughs, I'm serious."
    For all his class, his confidence, he seemed touched. He tossed the flare aside. "I'm going to kiss you." He put his hands on her shoulders and leaned forward. Lara closed her eyes, tilted her head back, and waited. And waited, feeling like Scarlett O'Hara. She ventured a look. Percy was worried.
    "I'm not going to stop you," she said.
    Poor boy, his conscience was getting in the way. "You're still in high school," he said nervously.
    "Do I look like I'm in high school?"
    "Not really."
    "Then forget that I am. I'm eighteen!" Actually she was seventeen. "The law won't come after you."
    "That's not what I was thinking! I just want you to know that I'm not the type of guy who tries to take advantage of the situation."
    "Percy, it is ten degrees below zero. You're not going to take off my clothes, and I very much doubt that you want me to undress you. You can't take advantage of this situation."
    He laughed. "This is a side of you that I haven't seen before."
    Lara laughed, too. "I haven't seen it before either."
    He kissed her. His nose was cold, his lips warm. She felt good in his arms, as if she wanted to stay there a long, long time. Hadn't a poet said that talk of death was the most potent aphrodisiac? She had never done it before, had always thought girls who did it on the spur of the moment without protection were fools. Yet she suddenly found herself wishing that it was a warm summer night with thick beds of grass behind the trees. He slipped his arms inside her coat at the back picking her up slightly. His mouth tasted like carrot cake. She loved carrot cake. She leaned into him at the waist. He slipped and landed on his back. She went along for the ride, bursting into giggles.
    "What happened?"
