Welcome to the blog tour for The Kiss That Launched 1,000 GIFs by Sheralyn Pratt!
Each weekday from 2:00-4:00 p.m., Grace and Ashton cohost Battle of the Sexes, a radio program arguing the he-said/she-said issues of the day. Their fiery debates often have listeners wondering if there’s more to their relationship than just talk, even though Grace has been dating Phillip, Mr. Tall, Dark, and Perfect, since long before she ever met Ashton Miller.
Yet when news comes that Battle of the Sexes is on the bubble for cancellation, Grace and Ashton need to step up their efforts to engage their audience to keep the show alive. When a charity organization approaches them and proposes that the two of them kiss for a fund raiser, Grace and Ash agree to kiss for a good cause. A kiss is just a kiss, right?

Sheralyn's first job was as a karate instructor, which taught her that practice does not make perfect; practice makes habit--good or bad. Martial arts also taught Sheralyn that a master is simply a person who can effortlessly do all the actions a beginner finds difficult or maybe even impossible.
Sheralyn has worked in many fields throughout her life, but her 12 years as a karate instructor have shaped how she does everything, including writing and mentoring. She likes to keep things light and fun, but she's also aware that life is journey and that if you're going to buy a book, your life should better for it.
So, fiction or nonfiction, know that each of Sheralyn's books are designed to take you to a new place. Maybe that book is designed to help you escape for a few hours, or maybe it's a book designed to teach you a new skill. Either way, Sheralyn hopes it's unforgettable...in a good way. ;)

Grace and Ashton love to debate each other on their radio program Battle of the Sexes. Grace is independent and sure of herself, while Ashton loves to rile her up with a distinctly masculine point of view. However, their radio show is now on the bubble, so Grace and Ashton need to try and do something to keep the show going. At first it involves simple things like interacting on social media, but then agree to kiss for charity. A kiss between frenemies seems harmless, but is it really?
This was such a fun book. I definitely related to Grace. She is very strong and knows what she wants out of her life and out of her relationships with people. I especially liked that she was serious about her career while still having fun. She was so professional that a kiss was no big deal. Or so she though. Ashton was hard to get a read on at first. I am not impressed by men who try to be so stereotypical, but Ashton really liked to argue with Grace. It was hard to determine what was real and what was just Ashton egging Grace on. They had developed though a friendship of sorts, and watching it grow was one of the more fun parts of the book.
The author clearly has a good grasp on social media as well. Talking about the shippers and the names they come up with was so spot on. This was such a fun way to tell a story and make it feel very real and current. Grace was very social media savvy while Ashton didn't know as much about it. However, the interactions they had felt very real and added another layer to the story. Overall this was a very cute and entertaining read. I think people who know a lot about social media and fans will particularly enjoy this story.
