Lips Touch (three times), by Lani Taylor

Taylor, Laini Lips Touch (three times), 272 p. Arthur A. Levine (Scholastic), 2009. $16.99. Language: PG-13 (33 swears); Sexual Content: PG (implied rape); Violence: PG (animal fights). Three stories; three first kisses. One story of lust and possession. One of deeper love that is almost stillborn by an evil curse. And one a story of a love that abides through the centuries, waiting until the moment is right to unfold. I really could have done without the first two stories in the book. The third story deserved every single page, plus a couple hundred more to make it an even richer experience. If readers can make it past the first two, they will be well rewarded by the third. HS – ADVISABLE. Cindy, Library-Teacher.
FYI - I am not a big fan of the cover art, but it works well inside the book.
