New Moon

New Moon Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?


Much like Twilight, New Moon keeps the steaminess to intense kisses between Bella and Edward, and some warm embraces and hand-holding with Jacob. Some rumors are floating that the movie adaptation with Kirsten Steward and Robert Pattinson might be a bit higher up in the steaminess rating. Perhaps it’s because they end up in Italy, the country of "amore" (source).
