⊱✿⊰ ALICIA'S REVIEW ⊱✿⊰ ARC ⊱✿⊰ The Unrequited by Saffron A. Kent

💜The Unrequited by Saffron A. Kent💜
TITLE: The Unrequited
AUTHOR: Saffron A. Kent
GENRE:  Contemporary
PUBLICATION: July 13th, 2017
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.


NOTE: Please be aware that this book deals with sensitive topics like cheating. 18+ Only.

My heart is not an organ.
It's more than that. My heart is an animal-a chameleon, to be specific. It changes skin and colour, not to blend in, but to be difficult, unreasonable.
I'm totally stuck on what to say about this book, I haven't read anything quite like it before. It made me question my morals, self beliefs and it tugged at my heartstrings with all the feels.

I found myself loving and hating both main characters throughout the book but I'm thinking the intense play on emotions is what the author was going for and if so bravo, job well done. This is by no means a regular romance, if you like your reads a little taboo and wild you'll love this.

A small smile blooms on my lips. I love that he hates me. See, hopeless. I've never loved hopelessness so much before.
This is a story of two very lost souls who are both suffering from unrequited love. They have a soul pulling connection and when they do come together it is so insanely intense and super hot!!

I am not going to lie, I struggled with this story in the beginning trying to understand Layla's breed of crazy. As the book progressed weather I wanted to or not I feel in love with this story. I hate the whole push and pull thing (usually) I have to admit though I had no problem with it in this as I feel the characters were so perfectly twisted and tortured it didn't bother me. The writing was perfectly done with the author taking me on a ridiculous ride I will not be forgetting it anytime soon.
