Lynn Rush & Kelly Anne Blount | At the Movies with Willow and Brodie + Giveaway!


Thanks so much for featuring us on Fresh Fiction! We love your blog and are so excited to have the opportunity to talk about our sweet YA romance, IN THE PENALTY BOX! Before we get started on our post, don’t forget to enter the giveaway! Details are at the bottom of the post.

Below we’ve shared our top five movies for Brodie and Willow’s characters. Do you have a favorite movie? If so, leave it in a comment below!

Brodie’s got quite a list, and as he and Willow get to know each other, he realizes they have a few in common! Which makes her all that more irresistible.

1--Fast and Furious 8: The Fate of the Furious. I mean a sub crashing through the ice? That’s just plain rad.

2--Young Blood: Best hockey movie ever...even if it’s from a hundred years ago.

3--The Avengers - all of them. No way can I choose just one.

4--The Terminator Series: Yep, even the non-Arnold ones.

5--Elf: Who wouldn’t like a movie that has the longest belch ever recorded?

Willow loves streaming movies! After tearing her Achilles tendon while figure skating, Willow had loads of rehab time, which meant hours on end watching movies while pedaling on a stationary bike. She has tons of favorites, but she’s narrowed her top five to the following:

1--Elf - The scene where Elf and Jovie sing a duet in the bathroom is priceless!

2--Fast and Furious (All of them!) - Who wouldn’t want to watch amazing cars with epic upgrades race around the world?

3--The Holiday - As far as movies go, this one always brings a smile to Willow’s face!

4--Mad Max - Dystopian future, scarce water, and good fighting evil? Yes please!

5--The Avengers - The beginning of one of the best franchises ever filmed!

IN THE PENALTY BOX by Lynn Rush, Kelly Anne Blount

In the Penalty Box

The Cutting Edge meets Friday Night Lights in a sizzling new hockey romance from bestselling authors Kelly Anne Blount and Lynn Rush.

Willow Covington has conquered every obstacle thrown at her to become one of the best figure skaters in the nation, until a devastating injury shatters her Olympic dreams. Instead of hanging up her skates, she switches to hockey; blocking shots and slapping the puck around takes her love of the ice to a whole new level, and suddenly she has a new goal—earning a hockey scholarship to Boston College. If only the team, especially the super talented (and, okay, hot) Brodie Windom, wasn’t so frigid toward her...

Hockey sensation Brodie Windom has one goal for his senior year: to win the state tournament, which would secure a spot on the famed Boston College hockey team. His eyes are on the prize and there’s no room for distractions—until figure skater Willow Covington joins the team and throws him off his game...
