♕ KAT'S REVIEW ♕ ARC ♕ THE UNREQUITED by Saffron A. Kent

THE UNREQUITED by Saffron A. Kent 
TITLE: THE UNREQUITED
AUTHOR: Saffron A. Kent
GENRE: Romance
PUBLICATION DATE: 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.

It all started with one glimpse of a man solitarily sitting on a park bench in the cold, smoking a cigarette deep in thought that spoke to Layla's inner loneliness. To the next day seeing him at the college library, to seeing him again and following him to a classroom and being gobsmacked that he wasn't a like minded student but a Poetry Professor. 

My heart is not an organ
It’s more than that
My heart is an animal - a chameleon

A class she's not even enrolled in but nothing is going to keep her away, she's relentless in her pursuit of him. 

➼ Somehow, someway, I have developed a crush on him. I know he's married. I know he's an asshole, rude and mean and some kind of a genius poet-but maybe that's the appeal. 

As you progress further into this book you can feel that underlying taboo energy oozing off the pages transpiring between the student trespasser and the Poetry Professor, tingles down the spine with each stolen glance, touch, spoken words only they hear, sneaky nights stalking hidden behind the veil of darkness. He's married, they have a child together, but no matter what grounds him at home when it comes to Layla everything is profoundly forbidden.

➼ Thomas Abrams is a firebreather. He breathes flames and lust, makes me forget everything and say yes. Yes to obsession. Yes to stalking. Yes to insanity. Yes to licking.

✽ MY THOUGHTS: ✽ This has been one of the hardest reviews I've had to sit down and write, this author takes you on such a profound exhausting journey, leave your inhibitions at the door because there are no boundaries in this book, every boundary line you won't step over is left at the curb.

God where to start and not come off sounding like a woman on crack, the first half of the book I struggled with the writing style, trying to connect with the story, a slow set pace that was ever so slowly creeping towards the uncharted forbidden territory of teacher and student entangling themselves into a frenzy of lust, passion, a waking up of souls, as soon as I reached that half way mark I was hooked, it flowed better, the words just flew off the pages and left their stamp on my soul.. 

BEST BOOK OF JULY!!

This author opened up my heart and caused all my emotions to bleed out, The Unrequited was so emotionally raw, it gripped me by the throat, the heart and didn't let go. It's complex, it's gripping, it's unique, definitely highly recommended. Just go in with an open mind and heart, feel everything the author has put on paper believe me it is a journey you will want to take.
