Our Reckless Hope (Muted Hopelessness Book 3) by Love Belvin
“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 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 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 unconceivable 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 twelve-year journey of losses, betrayal, miscommunications, and death. Even in between the devastation were new lives, burgeoning careers, and millions being earned by them both. Nonetheless, can the wins override the pain in between?
