Chaz was an outgoing, witty main character and her personality and spirit added a lot to Kiss It. She never held back with what she wanted to say and always spoke her mind. Chaz was an original and unique character and was still trying to find herself. Kiss...more

Promiscuous while still emotional and in depth, Kiss It is a hilarious journey of one girl to lose her virginity. Born and raised in a very small town with few options, Chastity battles against her hormones while still wanting to at least have her first be something other than simply giving it up. The small town setting comes through strongly, as does Chastity’s mentality and personality that is partly spurred from it.
Chastity is an entertaining, rich character and very focused on all things sex...more
Chaz started off as a bit of an enigma. I got that she didn't think sex was a huge de...more
I didn't even know Kiss It was the title!
I just bought it.
Anyway, when I read the blurb, I thought it was kind of cliche. But I didn't mind. I read this out of boredom last night. I thought a light read would give me something to do.
In the first chapters, I didn't really like Chaz. But as the story...more
I read it a couple of days after I got it despite the fact that I have stacks of books to read all over the place, and I'm glad I did! There were a lot of layers to this book, and I enjoyed every single one of them.
The first few chapters were absolutely hilarious. In fact, I read the prologue and first chapter three or four times b...more
Anyway, the book was really entertaining and I wish I could read it for a first time again. The introduction of the book was really straigh-forward and gets the message across.
"This book is about sex. If you are faint-hearted, close this book now. If not, enjoy! :D"
I love Sebastian. He seems hot. And kinda awesome.
One thing I really want to say is...more

This book was definitely not what I was expecting it to be - and I believe that to be a good thing. Instead of just being your normal YA romance fluff, I thought that the author did a brilliant job making the story realistic and relatable, all while tackling some major issues.
One of the main reasons I enjoyed reading the book was because of the main character, Chaz. I thought she was wickedly funny, incredibly sarcastic, pretty darn smart and ju...more
Kiss It is one of the funniest books I've read in a while. Chaz was hilarious and her story addicting. I simply couldn't put this one down. It's funny, well written, and the characters well developed. Basically, it's more than what the summary leads you to believe.
Okay, so, I have to rant about how much the summary bothered me. It was mostly just the one sentence "Sebastian has no idea what he’s in for—but maybe neither does Chaz…." that ruined it for me, but it also made Chaz seem kind of... S...more
Kiss It was great! A lot different than what I expected, but in the best possible way.
The first chapter can tell a lot about a book, but then other times, it says nothing. BUt it will give insight on if you will like it or not. Read the first chap...more
Yes, yes, yes! I seriously couldn't put KISS IT down, even though it would have been in my best interest because I have plenty of homework and whatnot to accomplish. Chastity Bryan is a breath of fresh air.
Chastity, or Chaz, is almost obsessed with the idea of sex and sexuality. To her, sex and love don't always occur in tandem, in fact, she prefers it that way. She's the type of girl that says when and she wants it now...more
The protagonist, Chaz, narrates her quest to finally have sex. Her reasons for the urgency behind her goal seem stereo...more
