A Reel Christmas in Romance by JJ DiBenedetto

Owner of the lone movie theater in Romance, Marianne Carter loves the old movies she shows on the big screen. She’s just struck up an email friendship with a newcomer to town. Unaware of his identity but feeling loyal to him, she fights her attraction to a handsome man she keeps bumping into around town.
Under a false identity, Jack Nelson comes to Romance to investigate the historic movie theater and decide if it should receive the status of a historical landmark. Little does he know the woman sending him charming emails is the same one who owns the theater.
While Marianne’s theater plays the old classic film The Shop Around the Corner, Marianne and Jack unknowingly play out the same story in real life. Will they figure it out in time to write their own happy ending?

Hunters’ Academy 1: Entrance Exam by Ivy Hearne

Survive or Die.

It’s not much of a school motto—not as inspiring as, say, “Let us give light to the world,” or “Knowledge is liberty,” or even just “Light and Truth.” Those are all real school mottoes. So is this one. It belongs to the Hunters’ Academy. And now, so do I.
Since she was twelve years old, Kacela Deluca has suffered debilitating migraines. On the eve of her sixteenth birthday, she learns her headaches are the result of untapped psychic abilities. She’s given a choice: continue to suffer, or leave behind everything she knows and join the Hunters’ Academy. The only catch? If she doesn’t pass the entrance exam, she’ll die.
A teen with blocked psychic powers, a panther shifter who can’t—or won’t—shift, a secret academy, and the power to defend the entire world…if only Kacela can unleash her potential before it’s too late.
Fans of Vampire Academy, Mortal Instruments, Harry Potter, and Dragon School will love Hunters’ Academy!
Entrance Exam is episode one of Hunters’ Academy – expect a new episode every month beginning Fall 2018!

Shattered by Bry AnnRead Shattered by Bry Ann #FreeBookFriday #Read

Sometimes, when I really think about it, I can almost feel the way the breeze felt against my skin that day. How it washed over me, cooling my heated skin.
I remember counting the minutes it took to get to my boyfriend’s house. Twenty-two, but it took twenty-three that day. Maybe the extra minute was a warning.
One I didn’t heed, of course.
I wanted love. It’s all I wanted. I would have done anything for it.
It made me an easy victim.
Tell me I’m pretty here, hug me there and I was a puppet on his string. He pulled and pulled until he asked me to do the one thing I absolutely could not do.
It broke me to tell him no. Tore me up. I went over to his house that day to try and find a way to make it up to him. To fix what I broke.
Minute nineteen.
Cool breeze. Sunshine. Hope for love, fear I ruined my chance at it by being disobedient.
Minute twenty.
Black. One minute was all it took for Sage Briar-Rose to cease to exist.
To shatter her.
This is the story of how I lost myself. The story of how my naive search for love left me shattered.
Trigger Warning: This book deals with extremely sensitive topics. If you get triggered easily, I’d chose one of my other books.

Why did you write this book?
For so many reasons, the most prominent being the subject matter is one VERY close to my heart. I’ve wanted to write on the topic for years and finally find the woman who’s story it belonged to.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Oh, dark romance 100%!
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
This is SO HARD! Oh my gosh. I have to say Abby from Dark Light of Day. I really connect with her on so many levels.
What are you working on at the moment?
It’s a secret! ;)
What books will we see from you in coming months?
The next book up will be the sequel to Shattered, Accepted and Rebuilt, which is actually already up for pre-order. After that I will be doing a couple more spin-offs from my Roses and Thorns series before diving into something new.

Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Let’s play Is It True with today’s guest, Bry Ann, author of Saving Them, a dark romance. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

Saving Them by Bry Ann

Genre: Dark Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Alexa:
Even my name is a lie.
I’m not Alexa.
I’m not even the badass I pretend to be.
I’m an ex-hooker with a childhood buried under years of mistakes.
I’ve played my part well.
Until he appears.
My greatest mistake of all.
Rex Carter.
Now I’m forced to watch the life I’ve built in secret crumble all around me.
There is no greater pain than love.
Nothing more destructive.
Rex:
She was my hero once.
Strong.
Invincible.
Beautiful.
Now all I feel is hatred. She is heartless. Cold.
It’s time I stood up for myself. Made her feel half of what she’s made me feel.
This is my revenge.
Get ready Alexandra Ray.

Is it true:

this is your first book?
No, This is my fourth!
this book is part of a series?
Yes, it is the third in the Saving Her series, but it can be read as a standalone! I recommend starting at Saving Her though for a better reading experience:).
you lost sleep while writing this book?
Yes! This book goes into some heavy stuff. Some really super personal stuff too, even though it’s hidden and I made sure no one but the people closest to me would know ;).
I often found myself emotional writing this book.
you did research for this book?
Yes, I really don’t want to give much away, but there is a character in this book who is an escort of sorts. I did some research to see what this is like for them.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Nope, all human!
this book has more than one genre?
Yes, I consider is a romantic suspense and dark romance novel :)
you speak more than one language?
I wish! I took four years of Spanish in high school and never got a chance to practice. I plan to learn it someday.
you grew up where you live now?
No, I grew up in California and live in Texas now.
you love to read?
Yes!! I read ALL the time. I’ve read 70 books this year already. Like, I’m obsessed. I read King by T.M. Frazier and haven’t looked back since.
you are never late?
Rarely. I hate it. That said, recently I’ve had some personal stuff come up and I feel like I’m behind on everything which to say that is rare for me would be an understatement.
you love pizza?
I haven’t had it so long, but who doesn’t! ;)
you love sushi?
Yes!!! Love sushi. Seaweed salad, yum….
you have a pet?
No! I haven’t been able to get one after losing my dog. I need more time. Plus, I’m not at a good place in my life to give it the time and attention it needs.

Axel by Bry Ann @authorbryann #RLFblog #romanticsuspenseBry Ann, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. I’d like to get to know you better. After we talk, I’ll ask for your bio and social media. Let’s jump in to a Quick and Fun answer session.

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?
Sort of. My books vary between suspense, romance and dark romance or sometimes  blend of the three. I don’t usually vary from these genres though. Sometimes I try to but it never works out. Write what you love, right?:)
How do you come up with ideas?
My life and my problems, haha! Most of my books come from something I want a better ending for. For instance, in Axel. I was super angry at somebody and didn’t know how to deal with it. I felt alone and misunderstood so I wrote Axel. It was a way for me to vent. Aly was a way for me to cope. Then I gave them the happy ending I dreamt of in that situation. It is kind of always a spin on my reality if that makes sense.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?
Being real! In real life I am shy and hold back a lot of what I think and feel. In my writing I like to brutally honest. I like it to be a place where I don’t shy from the hard topics and people can relate. In the end though I always like there to be some kind of happy ending. I love light and dark. That’s a theme in all my books.
When did you write your first book?
Well it depends on what you count as a ‘first book’ haha. I wrote a book when I was like twelve and lost it. Then I didn’t write a book again until I was twenty and was inspired by a Buzzfeed article of all things. Axel is the first book I decided to publish.

FUN

Leather or lace? Hmm, leather and lace depending on my mood. Most days leather, but once and a while lace :)
Black or red? These are hard questions! My two favorite colors. Black.
Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Smooth cotton. I think it’d feel weird to sleep on satin.
Ocean or mountains? I am living in the mountains now, but the ocean. Nothing makes me feel calmer than the sound of the ocean.
City life or country life? Country life all the way
Party life or evening at home? Both. I love a nice night at home, but I am learning it is fun to go out once and a while!
Dogs or cats? Dogs. I am a little afraid of them, but after my last dog I have to say dogs. She loved me so unconditionally.

Tell us about Axel.

Axel is about a professional boxer who suffers a serious tragedy at a young age. He has anger issues and pushes everyone away. One day on a train he meets Aly.
Aly is trying to find herself. She lives in a strict Christian family in a strict Christian town. Although she wants to stay Christian she senses something is off about her life back home. She wants to figure out who she is. She doesn’t realize that her family is abusive and justifying it with their faith.
Both of their pasts come crashing back in an explosive way. It is a story about light and dark and the power of redemption.
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
Publisher: Bry Ann
Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Axel-Romantic-Suspense-Bry-Ann-ebook/dp/B077PC8TLD/
