Publisher's Summary

I believe it was the night before Thanksgiving of the year I’d fallen for a tomboy fighter from a trailer park in South Jersey.

I was in your kitchen when you told me cheating is wrong, and it will never be right. But the biggest conflict is when you fall in love with someone who isn’t yours.

You said people fall in and out of love every day, and that most of it is bullshit...being more about passion and temporary emotions. But when the person you’re cheating with is worth a commitment and a sacrifice, and when you’re prepared in your heart and mind to walk through the fire of the mess, it might be something real after all. That was, and still is KaToria McNabb.

Fate, via her inconceivable success, reconnected the unlikely pair. What has happened? Why didn’t he call? Why didn’t she reach out?

Ashton and Tori unravel the paths their lives took after Blakewood State University. It’s been a painful 12-year journey of loss, betrayal, miscommunication, and death. Within the devastation grew new lives, burgeoning careers, and millions being earned by them both. Nonetheless, can the wins override the pain in between?

This book contains angst, profanity, and sexually explicit content.

Deep

This book at so much going on in the life of Tori and Ashton that it was almost overwhelming; life has a way of throwing monkey wrenches into your plans and tests the way we will deal with it. The narrators did a fantastic job with the characters. My only criticism is that the books are so long.

The best series in a long time!

This series is hands down the best series I have listened to in a long time. The constant growth of the characters and the ups and downs had me fixated on the series for days! Highly highly recommended

Could be a movie

SPOILER ALERT: This series had me captivated since book 1. Love Belvin is very detailed oriented and is great at giving visuals. I wish I wouldve known how Tori and Johnson got together in the first place, the book kind of wisked right past that one to focus on its current issues. I loved the book though. I was getting mad at Tori for keeping Bobby a secret but I knew Trisha was gonna snitch at some point. I also wish they would've brought up why Ashton didn't want to speak to Tori while he was in the ambulance being that he went there to defend her in the first place. Overall this book series was the bomb.

JUST…WOW!!!

This series here… hands down, AWESOME!!! From the storyline to the narrators, this book was very captivating. I RARELY write reviews, I’ll do the stars, but rarely will I write a review. However, for the Muted Hopelessness book series, I had to. I was hooked from the first book to the third, laughing AND crying. So walk, run, crawl, however you’re doing it, just go read or listen, whichever suits your fancy, do it!! You will not be disappointed. And to Love Belvin 👏🏽 👏🏽 👏🏽…she did her THANG!!!

A perfect series!

Ok. So this series is a SLOW burn. No side story or character is disregarded or swept over. A LOT happens between Ashton and Torria and the author carefully sets it all up in spectacular detail. I’m so happy Love gave their resolution a full book instead of stamping happily ever after too quickly as some do. That said, do I agree with everything the main characters did? No? Did they annoy me at times? Heck yeah. But I think that helped to embrace their full story. Perfect humans was never the goal. Listen… just listen to the books! I hope a fourth short story comes out so we can check in on this pair in years to come. They are officially a favorite!

Well worth the wait

Love Belvin really outdid herself with this series. The characters, their dialogues and just all round story development was on point. This is officially my favourite LB series. Ashton and Katoria... such an emotional, thought provoking and beautiful love story.
