I've never actually been to a Kissing Booth, I've just written about one in my new sweet and sexy romance, KISSING THE MAID OF HONOR. I mean what better place for a romance to start than with a kiss on a high school baseball field with one of the star players? Five bucks well spent, right? Uh, not when the boy humiliates the girl and breaks her heart.

Fast-forward ten years and Sela and Luke are all grown up and the maid of honor and best man. But some things are hard to forget and despite the crazy-ass attraction between Sela and Luke, there's this little piece of their past meddling with their present.

That's all I'm going to say about their kissing booth, though, because today I want to talk about the perfect kissing booth. Or as I like to call it... My Book/Movie/TV Boyfriend Kissing Booth.

What? You guys have never dreamed about what hot guy you'd like to smooch in a kissing booth? Okay, so maybe I've got the whole kissing booth thing on the brain and I've recently given some extra thought to the matter. But now that I've introduced you to the idea, I'm hopeful you'll jump on board. (Come on! It'll be fun!)  So here are my picks for guys (besides my hubby) I'd most like to kiss in a kissing booth...

1. Luke Watters ~ I've swooned over my hero in KISSING THE MAID OF HONOR since the minute I thought him up. Besides being smart, loyal, funny, and fearless, while I was writing him I totally pictured Josh Duhamel. I love Josh. I think he's so darn cute, seems like a nice guy who can be goofy and romantic, and did I mention he's so darn cute?  My Luke is a tease and I picture Josh being the same way. One of my favorite Luke lines is...  "Sweetheart, there's nothing small about me, and if you need proof, I'd be happy to show you."

2. Paul Walker ~ *drools* I could seriously stare at this man all day. My favorite movies of his are The Fast and the Furious films (can't wait for the new one!), Into the Blue, and Eight Below. Besides being extremely nice to look at, I like his voice, his swagger, and his adventuresome spirit. He also seems like the kind of guy you could count on.

3. Alex O'Loughlin ~ One of my favorite TV shows is Hawaii Five-O and so I get to see this guy every week. He's ruggedly handsome, has a take-no prisoners attitude, and is sometimes a smartass. He's an Aussie and I don't think I've ever heard him speak without an American accent, but I so want to! Maybe a little peck on his cheek and he'd whisper something with just the right inflection in my ear.

4. Tyler Longfoot from Samanthe Beck's PRIVATE PRACTICE ~ Oh, how I loved this bad boy. Tyler was off the charts sexy if you ask me. He also had a heart of gold, a sense of humor, a protective streak, and a drive to succeed on his own terms. Watching him fall for the heroine was pure delight. I could have kept reading about him forever.

5. Adam Connelly from Jill Shalvis' RESCUE MY HEART ~ Adam is fighting the ghosts of his past and there is something incredibly endearing about a man with painful memories to sort through. Especially when he discovers the woman whose heart he once broke might be the exact remedy he needs. Oh, and Adam is incredibly hot.

I truly had the best time writing KISSING THE MAID OF HONOR. I'm thinking that maybe in the back of my mind I've always secretly wished I'd visited a kissing booth and gotten the chance to pucker up with some cute boy. But the wonderful thing about fiction is that we  get to live vicariously through the characters and experience those things we've only dreamed about.

Now I'd love to hear from you! Who's your Kissing Booth fantasy guy? One commenter will receive a Bliss e-Book from Entangled Publishing.

Re: Robin Bielman | My Book/Movie/TV Boyfriend Kissing Booth

I would love to find mark Harmon in a kissing booth. Anything he's in is
worth watching. Sexy, great sense of humor and that smile-- be still my
(Debbie Rudder 9:56am May 22, 2013)

Hugh Jackman for sure! He's cute!
(May Pau 9:56am May 22, 2013)

I would be willing to pay any kissing booth amount for Robert
Downey Jr in the booth :O)
(Carin Walker 9:59am May 22, 2013)

Hi Debbie! Oh, I love Mark Harmon! And actually, I've met him. :) Back in
college I did an internship at Entertainment Tonight and got to go to an
interview with him. He is so handsome and so, so nice!

Hi May! Love Hugh, too! Not only is he cute, but he seems like a genuinely
good guy.

Hi Carin! LOL Robert Downey Jr. is pretty awesome all around, isn't he?

Thanks for sharing your fantasy guys, ladies!
(Robin Bielman 10:23am May 22, 2013)

My husband of 50 years will do just fine!
(Marjorie Carmony 10:32am May 22, 2013)

Hugh Jackman
(Patricia Wagner 11:16am May 22, 2013)

I enjoyed your choices to kiss. Know what you mean about Tyler from Private Practice.
Personally, kissing is such an intimate experience for me, I really wouldn't want to be in a kissing booth, because kissing everyone isn't fun.
However, I would like to stare up close and personal at a whole list of gorgeous men. I'd like to gaze into Paul Walker's eyes, because they are a work of art!
(Lynne Marshall 11:35am May 22, 2013)

there are alot of guys i would like to find and kiss brad pitt
when he was younger,a korean actor names hyun bin, also
another korean actor named ji sung
(Denise Smith 11:43am May 22, 2013)

My husband of almost 50 years is fine with me as a kissing partner, like Marjorie's husband is to her, but if George Clooney came along and would accept an older woman, I know that would be okay with me for sure. :)
(Cynthia Blain 12:01pm May 22, 2013)

Love my hubby but should I happen upon Bradley Cooper, Anson
Mount, or Sam Elliott in a kissing booth- I'm afraid I'd be
apt for a smooch with them
(Amanda Ray 12:20pm May 22, 2013)

So many great choices... I will say Stephen Amell.
(Colleen Conklin 12:25pm May 22, 2013)

I'd definitely line up for Luke Watters, played by Josh Duhamel! (Adult Luke, that is...not high school Luke). :)
(Samanthe Tucker 12:56pm May 22, 2013)

Hi Marjorie! Congratulations on 50 years! That is wonderful and I wish you
both many, many more.
(Robin Bielman 12:58pm May 22, 2013)

Hi Patricia! Looks like you'll have to share Hugh with May, but I don't think
he'll mind.

Hey Lynne! Ah, gazing into Paul's eyes would be pretty darn blissful.

Hi Denise! So I just googled Hyun and Ji and they are so cute! Brad's not too
bad either.
(Robin Bielman 1:02pm May 22, 2013)

First of all I loved Kissing the Maid of Honor! It made me laugh and cry, and
that's a good book to me!
I would love to line up to kiss Henry Cavill (sp.?.) from the Tudors, and the
new Superman.
(Pat Fordyce 1:06pm May 22, 2013)

Hi Cynthia! Congratulations to you, too, on almost 50 years! Best wishes on
your big day! I love that you said if George Clooney happened to come
along... LOL Cynthia, I think your hubby is a very lucky man.

Hey Amanda! I love your threesome. And love that you'd be inclined to kiss
them. I know what you mean. ;)

Hi Colleen! Oh, the Arrow guy! Yep, he's pretty kissable!
(Robin Bielman 1:07pm May 22, 2013)

Hey Samanthe! Aww, love your choice!

Hi Pat! Thank you so much! That's such a wonderful compliment and I'm
thrilled you loved Luke and Sela's story! Yep, you spelled Henry's name right -
and omg is he cute! I have to see Superman just because of him.

I am so enjoying everyone's picks! Thank you all for stopping by!
(Robin Bielman 1:13pm May 22, 2013)

Hugh Jackman is my favorite!
(Monica Vargo 1:32pm May 22, 2013)

Ryan Reynolds
(Sharlene Wegner 2:16pm May 22, 2013)

So many choices...
(Laura Gullickson 2:50pm May 22, 2013)

So many to choose from Robin, but I'll be boring and say my hubby in the kissing booth. Although, appealing guys to me are Hugh Jackman and Josh Duhamel. I'm really enjoying Kissing the Maid of Honor!!
(Charlene Sands 3:15pm May 22, 2013)

Too many choices!
(Marina Buffoleno 3:29pm May 22, 2013)

Sam Elliot. Wouldn't even have to kiss him, just have him whisper sweet
nothing's. His voice is sooo sexy.
(Susan Falkler 3:37pm May 22, 2013)

george clooney here! thanks
(Debbi Shaw 4:19pm May 22, 2013)

Any muscular military man will do just fine. And my hubby. LOL
(Marcy Shuler 4:50pm May 22, 2013)

Sounds like lovely fun!
(Irene Menge 4:57pm May 22, 2013)

I haven't read any of your books.... yet! They sound good
tho!! I don't even need a kissing booth (cause I got a great
husband) but.. a let me just look at you booth..well that
would be great LOL!
(Mya Bainbridge 6:53pm May 22, 2013)

Hey everyone! Your kissing booths rock. Thanks so much for playing along!

Charlene, I'm so happy you're enjoying Kissing the Maid of Honor! Thank you
for reading it!

Hi Mya! I like the way you think. I hope you enjoy them. And my booth is your
booth. :)
(Robin Bielman 7:30pm May 22, 2013)

I'm guilty. I was in a kissing booth, ostensibly to raise
money for the Frosh class at my University. It was okay with
most of the guys ( a nice peck), but I have to say that when
one of the Jesuits puckered up he tasted of tobacco---yuck
(besides be most un-priestly in his kiss)

Dream guy to kiss? I think I am with the gals who claim it
as an intimate act saved for someone with whom you have
established some intimacy. Now in my dreams, it might be a
different story...lol.

Great post Robin! Rah, rah---"Kissing the Maid Of Honor" !!
(Christine London 7:53pm May 22, 2013)

that would be robert refold he great actor and does great movies that book seen it on authors site and then i love to read and blog on it
(Desiree Reilly 9:19pm May 22, 2013)

I have never been to a kissing booth. But I have a few dream guys. My two faves would be Brad Pitt or Johnny Depp
(Tiffany Gronn 10:03pm May 22, 2013)

Wow, Congrats on your new book: KISSING THE MAID OF HONOR. I
would love being stuck in a kissing booth with my husband
Jesus since we have been married and if I was still single I
would love to be stuck in a kissing booth with the actor
Jan-Michael Vincent that I always loved watching on the show
Airwolf back in 1984 for a few years. What a hunk. Hee Hee!
Thanks, Cecilia CECE
(Cecilia Dunbar Hernandez 10:33pm May 22, 2013)

My husband Chris - of 27 years! Thanks.
(Dianne McVetty 11:55pm May 22, 2013)

Oh my! You want me to pick/name just ONE guy to kiss?? I would have to say Mark Harmon, as long as Pam Dawber wasn't watching. ;)
(Kathleen Giannone 11:58pm May 22, 2013)

I want a guy, that is kind, thoughtful ,loving, generous and treats me like he never sees another woman so it couldn't be a celebrity it would be a man on the street kind of guy.I am a widow and would love someone like my late husband, except he would carry these qualities.
(Agatha Townsend 3:14pm May 23, 2013)

Not in a kissing booth, but I'd love to kiss Mark Harmon,
Sam Elliott or George Clooney.
(Carol Woodruff 6:30pm May 23, 2013)

Hamish MacBeth, from MC Beaton's mystery series - for days after I've read another one I hear his Highland accent in my dreams!
(Beth Fuller 10:04pm May 23, 2013)

I haven't every experienced a kissing booth either; but I can invision one.
(Gladys Paradowski 10:54pm May 23, 2013)

It would be Chris Hemworth from Thor or Daniel Craig (love him as James Bond).
(Kai Wong 11:18pm May 23, 2013)

(Shelley Summers 4:53pm May 24, 2013)

Tom Selleck, Sam Elliott, Mark Harmon, Nathan Fillion, Jason O'Mara.
That's just for starters. :) Greedy aren't I?
(Penny Mettert 10:32pm May 24, 2013)

Oh. How could I forget George Clooney? Or Chris O'Donnell? I should
have read the comments first. :)
(Penny Mettert 10:37pm May 24, 2013)

I’m inspired with the surpassing and preachy listing that you furnish in such little timing.
