Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Love Me, Lust Me Not.
Love Me, Lust Me Not by Brittany Boykin
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Hello, I’m Beverly, owner and partner of Off-the-Wall-Marketing based in Manhattan. I have never been one for love because I have my heart set on the one guy I can’t have: Davis Jones.
When my dream man suddenly becomes available, I find myself caught in a potential love triangle. His crazy, almost ex-wife puts us through some psychotic stunts and tries to make her way back into Davis’ arms. Am I also falling for one of my best friends? In the middle of my trying love life, I find out some heart wrenching news about my business partner. My life is literally falling apart at the seams. What am I supposed to do?
When someone dies, we say they “kicked the bucket.” Therefore, a list of things that a person wants to accomplish, places to go, situations to experience, and so on have become known as a “Bucket List.”
Birthplace: New York
Profession: Owner of Off the Wall Marketing
Please provide a physical description of yourself.
I have dark brown hair, hazel eyes. I am tall and slender with a smile that will knock you out. I have legs for days, but I tend to dress modestly.
Please tell us a little about yourself.
I own my own business with my partner, Jeff. We met in college and started our company together. I have regretted partnering with him every day since. I love to hang out with my best friend Sheila and our friend, Mark. I am completely in love (or is it lust?) with Davis, one of Jeff’s clients who happens to work in our building. Even though I try to steer clear of drama, it somehow seems to always find its place smack in the middle of my life.
Who is the significant other in your life?
Well, you will have to read my story to find out. I can’t give away too much. I don’t want to spoil anything!
If you haven’t made a bucket list before, perhaps now would be a good time. Who knows? It might inspire another book. While you’re at it, how about telling us about some of your other favorite things? Here are the questions.
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
Hmmm. My favorite toy was probably coloring. Does that count? I still to do this day love artwork and being creative. I guess that is why I love marketing so much!
Describe your favorite food and how it’s prepared.
My favorite food is definitely a big ol’ juicy hamburger. I can’t eat them often, but I will put one away every once in a while.
Tell us about your best friend.
Oh, Sheila! She is my rock. She helps me through everything in life. She knows way too much about me and I her. She is a gossip and sort of dramatic, but that is one of the many reasons why I love her.
What are two places you would like to visit before you die, and why?
Paris! I have always been a romantic at heart. I would love to go to the most romantic city on Earth with the love of my life one day. Also, Hawaii! I love beaches and Hawaii is absolutely beautiful in pictures. If I can ever get away from the office one day, I will convince my honey to take me.
Where is a place you would never like to return, and why?
NYU. It was fun, and I am appreciative for my time there, but I really can’t stand the immaturity of college kids. I wanted to study and get my degree. Everyone else wanted to party. GAG.
Who is someone you would like to meet, and why?
Oprah. I have always been inspired by her and her success. She is just such an amazing woman. I would absolutely love to just sit and have coffee with her one day. One woman to another.
Who is someone you would like to avoid, and why?
Jeff, my business partner. I can’t really go into too much detail because of legal issues while we await trial. You should read my story to find out more.
If you could time travel to any date, what would it be, and what would you do there?
Probably the 50s. I would love to wear a poodle skirt and sit in a diner with my boyfriend. Friday night football with my posse. Okay I know that sounds lame, but my favorite movie is Grease. “Tell me about it. Stud.”

Why did you choose this character for the interview today?
She is the main character and the easiest for me to talk about. She is the one I have dreamed up the most since she is the main characters, so I already knew her personality and such.
Are any sequels planned for this book?
I definitely plan to start book two soon. I am not sure how quickly I will write it, but I left some unanswered questions in book one. I want to get them answered for my readers.

What genre(s) would you like to write that you haven’t tried yet?
I would like to try my hand at a mystery novel, maybe. I am not completely convinced yet. I think I need to finish Beverly’s story before I can even dream up another plot.
