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.

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.

Mic Drop

My, my, my. I fell in love with Ashton and Tori from the beginning. Two opposite worlds, collide, explode, implode, and the becomes one. Really, this series should be a movie. Not a series of episodes, just a freaking movie. I thought it would be a reversal and it was. The old money and the new money. The growth and maturity. The depression, loss, and steadfastness of growth and determination. The in-love beauty shared between the two main characters. The daughters. The sons. Family. I listened to the book in two days. The book was released on My husband’s birthday and I had to put it on hold for most of it. The narrators capture me every time. I loved the laughable moments and I felt the sadness and pain. Undoubtedly, this was an epic conclusion. Beautifully written.

OAN, I am a fan of the author. I am so willing to use a credit for 7 or more hours of audible. However, I struggled to use a credit for the shorter books, but with this author, I am a fan. I love Love’s writings. I hope you do, too.

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.

I hate the story had to end

I loved every moment of the story. Everything was believable and relatable. I laughed and cried with the characters . The narration was grade A. I loved how the writer captured every detail of every scene. I felt what they felt . I hate this story had to end, but I enjoyed the ride.

Love Hangover

I listened to this story five time I. a row. It is a great story about love and triumph over obstacles of the mind and heart. I loved Ashton. He represents honesty and integrity in a young man. Tori is damaged and in my opinion selfish. Although she wanted to belong to him, she never truly gave him a chance, nor did she consider him as being someone with feelings. Ashton although young made sacrifices to keep her in his life .... even though he was a jerk at times. I'm happy with the ending.

There are not enough words!!! 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

This book... This entire series was everything! It was the ultimate slow burn. Ashton and Tory were phenomenal together. This series was so well developed. The characters were so multifaceted. It was great seeing the couple come full circle. It was the book that I didn't know I needed. This series gave me all of the feels. I actually cried during a few moments in the book
So many secrets were revealed. We find out what happened to Ashton after the fight. We find out what happened to Tory and the baby. It was worth the credit and time. Narrator's were phenomenal! Just buy the book!

Best love story!!

Emmanuel and Wesleigh are superb. They truly brought Ashton and Tori to life in an extraordinary way. There were aspects that I wanted to unfold differently but this story is perfection. The story was top tier and the performances were top tier. Literally couldn’t stop reading this. ❤️🙌🏾
