Teardrops Know My Name



She regarded him silently for a moment, gazing into his dark brown eyes and watching a smile curve his lips. “I think that it would be. You don’t know me very well. I’ve had too many heartbreaks, and I’m in a vulnerable state right now where I may be incapable of making good choices. I don’t ever want to end up where I am right now—in this same place—again. For God’s sake, my last boyfriend was married, and I had absolutely no idea. How could I not have known? Other people were able to see the red flags, but I didn’t see a thing.”
“I hear what you’re saying, and I understand, but you can’t live the rest of your life that way. You can’t shield yourself from getting to know someone and never open yourself up to love again because of your past relationships.” He sipped water from the glass in front of him. His eyes were fixed on hers.
He stood and came around to her side of the booth, sat next to her, and reached for her hand, taking it into his and intertwining their fingers. He slowly lifted her hand to his mouth and gently pressed his lips to the back of it. Feeling his warm breath against the skin of her hand made her tremble. “I promise you that if you give me a chance, you won’t need to worry about anything. You will see no red flags when it comes to me. I have no secrets and no hidden agenda,” he said softly, lips brushing against her hand again. He lifted his eyes, looking her straight in the face.
Damn. He’s making this difficult. She couldn’t think clearly. Her senses had been heightened by his sensual touch, his silky smooth dark skin, and his masculine musk mixed with the spicy cologne he wore. She had to stop herself from being drawn in by this magnetic force that threatened to take her over mentally and physically.
He tipped her head up with his finger and lowered his mouth onto hers, brushing his lips against hers, teasing her, barely touching them at first. Then he whispered against her lips, “Please give me”— soft kiss—“a chance.”
Linda had to admit that she wanted Sean. There was something about him that stirred her soul. But was she willing to throw caution to the wind as she had done in the past? When she thought about it, she had always jumped from one relationship to another without giving herself a break in between. Maybe that was the problem. Was she codependent? Did she need to be in a relationship in order to feel whole? She needed some distance from Sean to find out more about who she was and what she wanted for herself in life.
It took every bit of her self-control and willpower to pull away from his kiss. She breathed in deeply. She knew she needed to say what she didn’t want to say. She mentally prepared herself to resist what she knew would be another attempt from him to pursue the idea of them being in a relationship. She slid a few inches away from him in an effort to prevent any further temptation, and she watched his shoulders droop.

Love Unexpected Review

10721367_1486507174946170_1689198925_n I gave this book 5 Gold Stars.

Love Unexpected was another great read and the storyline developed more since the first book which drew me all into the book.

While reading this book I feel like Love Belvin put me on a roller coaster and strapped me in and did not let me off the ride until the last page. The raw emotions that are displayed in this book will touch your mind, body and soul. Rayna and all insecurities was so relatable to me because sometime when you have been hurt and disappointed you developed insecurities that are hard to let go of.

This story continues the love story between Rayna and Azmir is still going thru it issues but it encompasses true love that has other things that must be work thru before love will take over. The patience that Azmir displays is remarkable and makes you fall for him from day one .

The love scene are scorching and well developed and helps you to understand the dynamics of their relationship. This novel has all the right elements, and it makes you go thru all kind of emotions will you read it.

In conclusion, this is a great follow up to the first book.

Chatting it up with Romance Writer Love Belvin….



1) Who is Love Belvin the person and the writer?

Love Belvin the person is a lover of people. She enjoys engaging and observing them. Weird, but true. She enjoys reading and wine sipping.

Love Belvin the writer is a bit of a recluse. She prefers alone time to unleash her mind…process energies and hear from characters. She, too, enjoys wine sipping!

2) Who is Love Belvin’s favorite and least favorite character from your works?

I think I have several favorites, and they’re not the hero and heroines of my projects. These are subsidiary character who brings comic relief that offsets the drama. So, of Love’s Improbable Possibility (L.I.P.), my favorites are Azmir’s close friends, Mark Richardson and Eric Gerrity, and his attorney Edward Chesney. They are hilarious characterizations, if I may say so myself. They’re comedic, but quirky, which I find amusing.

I would have to think about my least(s). I record characters rather than create them. I don’t work to build them. I simply give you what they give me. Hmmmm… Maybe Sebastian Adams of L.I.P. is my least favorite. He’s such a corny guy who tried to use and control Rayna. He made my skin crawl.  

3) What is on your personal and career bucket list?

The first thing that comes to mind is to meet Oprah Winfrey and visit her main home as her guest. I’d love to absorb some of her energy. I also plan to travel a lot more and experience new cultures.

4) In 100 words or less describe Love Belvin’s works that are published

So, the first of my works is the Love’s Improbable Possibility series. It’s about the journey of a young girl’s life from the perils of an urban environment, to her discovering her inability to trust, to her stumbling upon love with a determined and powerful man. The journey spans four full-length novels, starting with Love Lost and ending with Love Redeemed, titles indicative of her evolution. I’m quite proud of my first “baby” because it showcases the progression of my writing style.

The second project is a series called Waiting to Breathe. We just released the first of the two book series this week, called Love Delayed. This story is about a man and young woman having, on the surface, nothing in common and just as likely a chance to meet. However, they do cross paths and discover they have similar interests and an undeniable chemistry. Their journey is rough, but we watch as they spend a considerable amount of time waiting on their love.

5) Are you an avid reader and If so what are some genres that you enjoy reading?

I am! It’s one of my favorite pastimes. I’m strictly a contemporary romance girl. I thoroughly enjoy reading about a blossoming relationship between a man and woman. Call me corny—perhaps nosy, but that my thing. LOL!

6) Where can readers like me find Love Belvin?

Of course, you can find up to date information on my website: www.LoveBelvin.com, but I’m also on social media.
