The Low of Love
Love Belvin - 2017
Before this wayward love settles for the straight path, there has to be a low. Right? The wayward connection of Isaak and Kennedi is now under new terms. This new playing field has them both caught in a whirlwind. They’re outside the classroom and in unfamiliar territory; the semester assignment seems a lifetime ago, and now those cultural differences that separated them aren’t enough to keep them from exploring more with each other and about each other. But to what expense? What’s sacrificed? What will be revealed? How low can love go before it ceases to exist? Note: This is the second installment of a three book series. It contains expletive language, sexual content, and ends on a cliffhanger. If you do not wish to have these elements in your reads, this is not the venture for you.
