Layla Robinson is not crazy. She is suffering from unrequited love. But it’s time to move on. No more stalking, no more obsessive calling.
What she needs is a distraction. The blue-eyed guy she keeps seeing around campus could be a great one–only he is the new poetry professor–the married poetry professor.
Thomas Abrams is a stereotypical artist–rude, arrogant, and broody–but his glares and taunts don’t scare Layla. She might be bad at poetry, but she is good at reading between the lines. Beneath his prickly façade, Thomas is lonely, and Layla wants to know why. Obsessively.
Sometimes you do get what you want. Sometimes you end up in the storage room of a bar with your professor and you kiss him. Sometimes he kisses you back like the world is ending and he will never get to kiss you again. He kisses you until you forget the years of unrequited love; you forget all the rules, and you dare to reach for something that is not yours.
The Unrequited was a sexy, angsty, forbidden, and emotional journey about love, loss, and finding happiness. The storyline and characters Saffron A. Kent created were unlike any I’ve read before, and I thoroughly enjoyed them from beginning to end. Saffron A. Kent’s writing style immediately sucked me in, and I fell in love with her prose. The Unrequited was my first novel from this author, and it certainly won’t be the last!
Thomas and Layla’s story was incredibly unique, and it took me on a roller coaster ride of thoughts, feelings, and emotions that I honestly didn’t know existed. I didn’t know what to think or how to feel most of the time, but I couldn’t help but be addicted from page one. There were some parts of the book that I didn’t like or agree with, but as a whole, I very much enjoyed Thomas and Layla’s journey, and was pleased with the outcome.
Thomas and Layla were complex, and it took a little while to warm up to and figure them out, but I ultimately fell in love with them. Their personalities complemented each other extremely well, and their chemistry together was on FIRE. It came alive when they were around each other, and their connection was undeniable. Thomas and Layla’s relationship was unconventional, and had many obstacles, but somehow it worked. Thomas and Layla were truly soulmates in every sense, and I rooted for them from the start.
The Unrequited was a steamy, forbidden, emotional, angsty, unconventional love story, and I’ve never read anything like it before. Saffron A. Kent blew me away with her prose and the epic, unforgettable tale she wove. It was raw, passionate, and filled with beautiful words and messages that everyone should read. I honestly can’t wait to devour more from Saffron A. Kent!
