Never judge a book by its cover, one of the world’s most common clichés. Though sage advice, the age-old aphorism is rarely followed. Take, for instance, Tori McNabb and Ashton Spencer, two subjects who believe by aesthetics alone, they have no reason to breathe the same air. When startling circumstances align on the campus of Blakewood State University, the two have no choice but to look beyond their exteriors.

McNabb is a fighter in life as well as in the ring. She knows what she’s capable of and doesn’t want to be tested. Her only goal is to never return to Millville, New Jersey while simultaneously flying under the radar as a small fish in the big BSU ocean. Spencer, the most popular athlete on campus is well on his way to success as a professional athlete and is confident the stars have aligned in his favor. Being tested by the underdog is one he’d never fail, or so he thinks.

Journey with this unlikely pair inside the pages of their ugly covers.


Publisher’s Note: “My Muted Love” is book ONE of a THREE book series. It ends on a CLIFFHANGER. This book contains angst, profanity, sexually explicit content, and material related to young adults.

  5. Dear Love,

    July 14th is a special day that the Lord hath made **hint-hint-wink-wink-nod-nod**

    Yours truly,
    Patiently Waiting

  6. This is my first book that I have read by Love and I am sooo happy that I found it! OMG! It was so good. The story telling was amazing, the plot was amazing, the character building was amazing! I literally stayed up ALL NIGHT to finish it knowing that I had to work in the morning. The only issue I have is that I have to wait for the next one. I don’t want to rush you because I know that good work takes time, but let’s just say that I’m impatiently waiting. Thanks for writing this!

  7. You are by far my favorite author; from my initial introduction to Love Lost, I have been hooked and sipping on the Team Love Kool-aid. I have read, loved and purchased almost all of your books series. I am simply amazed by your talent and your writing ability. I pray God continues to bless you and your talents and can’t wait to see what you are cooking up for us next with Tori and Ashton. Thanks so much for sharing your talents and skills with us. We appreciate you!!

  8. I’m so patiently/impatiently waiting on book 2 of My Muted Love. The characters have me on edge with so much excitement. I guess because Ashton and Tori are so complex. I really hope Love explains Tori’s hang ups with being touched. I can guess but I’m so intrigued on how she’s going let it play out. Also, I so curious as to why Ashton feels his grandmother and mother has so much to say in his personal life especially who he’s going to marry. I have a funny feeling Brick’s prediction about Ashton marrying Aviery is going to come true, however there will be something missing like passion. I hope not but its wishful thinking. I think Ashton is infatuated with Tori and she is as well with him. I can’t wait to read book 2 and 3. Love you are extremely talented and I look forward to reading all your work. I have several times over. I have purchased all of your books. You are simply amazing as a writer and I’m truly a fan. You are by far my favorite author.

  9. LISTEN! I’ve been listening to Romance genre on Audible for a while now and this book/series altered my standards entirely. I could listen to this story over and over. There’s a few things that I thought were left unsaid, but after listening again it’s a dang near perfect character progression. I’m officially a Love Belvin fan.
