While filming her seventh major motion picture, Liana Marie reveals her love for her childhood best friend, patient and compassionate Manuel Biro, a humble bus boy and student athlete. Shocked and thrilled to find he loves her in return, she tries living an almost normal life. All seems lost when her mother’s mistakes lead to harrowing consequences for mother and daughter. Fortunately, Liana Marie comes to understand that her success and the strength born from her love for Manuel are exactly what she needs to shape her uncertain future.
LOVED IN PIECES is not only a love story. With fast-paced narrative that reflects Hollywood’s hyper-drive lifestyle, Ms. Hanna transports the reader into an actor’s daily life and demonstrates how difficult it is for young adults to break free from a path created by someone else – even when it is a successful one.
Carla J Hanna is the author of the Intentions Series coming-of-age novels with romantic and spiritual elements, including her debut novel LOVED IN PIECES. A graduate of Colorado State University with a Masters of Arts, she lives in Colorado with her family.
