THE UNREQUITED by Saffron A. Kent : Release Blitz + Review

The UnrequitedThe Unrequited by Saffron A. Kent
My rating: 5 of 5 stars



The Unrequited is the story of two broken souls trying to find their way in their broken lives.
Layla, college student, is struggling to move on after she fell in love with the wrong person. Thomas, poetry professor, is fighting to keep his family together.
As their world's are falling apart, they collide, Layla's boldness with Thomas's cold and distant attitude. "Soul mates" in their pain, they look for a way to alleviate the heartache that rules their days, and even more, their nights.
"I can be Thomas’ secret, for a little while, at least— until I absorb all of his pain and set him free."

This book is my second one by Saffron A. Kent, and just like A War Like Ours, it totally wrecked me. Saffron has a way with words, it's simply pure magic, poetry.
If you know me, then you know there are matters I don't want to read about, ever. The Unrequited deals with one of then. Cheating. I was so sure I would never be able to read about unfaithfulness.... Because it was Saffron, though, I requested this book, and because she is so talented, the story totally absorbed me. Broke me. Shattered the preconceptions I had.


Layla and Thomas's story is about acceptance, about learning to let go; there are things that just can't be controlled, fixed or prevented. The characters lost sight of who they are, what their dreams are, in their desire to exist, matter, be loved. They lose themselves in lust, mind blowing sex in order to try and find an escape to their reality. But in the end, will there be something left for them to give or take? Or will their all-consuming passion be their destruction?
"I don’t regret falling in love; I only regret how it happened."

With this story, you will love, hate, swoon, coo, laugh, scream and cry....maybe question your beliefs, but let me tell you, IT'S ALL FOR THE BEST!!!

Blurb

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 and death. 18+ Only.

Excerpt

I’m hit by a storm of desire to kiss him better. It’s a tornado, an avalanche in my body, and in one breathless moment, I decide to go for it. It’s okay. I can take the blame for it later.
I break the rules and reach up and kiss him. A feathery peck on his plump lips, it’s a kiss of solidarity, a kiss that intends to tell him I understand—but one isn’t enough. It only manages to ratchet up my lust. So I give him another, this time on the corner of his mouth, and then another one on his jaw.
It’s not enough, these small, barely-there touches. I want more, but I won’t take it. I’ll be good; I’ll only give.
Abruptly, he fists my curls and stops me. I look at him fearfully, ready to apologize—not for the kiss, but for being the kisser. His gaze reflects passion, stark, raving need, and I shiver, despite wearing layers and sweating with his heat.
“Are you trying to kiss me, Layla?” he rasps, flexing his fingers on my makeshift ponytail.
He couldn’t tell? Blush rises to the surface and I know I’m glowing like a neon sign. Swallowing, I nod. “Yes.”
He inches closer to me, still not touching—as impossible as that is—but infinitely closer. “You want to kiss me, Miss Robinson, you do it right.”
Oh God, does he have to call me that? Now, here? My spine arches on its own and my heavy tits graze the contours of his shuddering chest.
“H-How?” I ask innocently, belying the daring action of my body. His stern, professor-y voice is doing things to me, making me wild, uncontrolled.
For a second, he’s silent, just watching. I’m afraid he’ll back out from whatever this is, whatever insanity we’re about to commit—but then I sense the shift in the liquor-laced air as he opens his mouth and growls, “Like this.”






Author Bio

Writer of bad romances. Coffee Addict. White Russian Drinker. Imaginary Ballet Dancer and poetess. Aspiring Lana Del Ray of the book world.

I'm a big believer in love (obviously). I believe in happily ever after, the butterflies and the tingling. But I also believe in edgy, rough and gutsy kind of love. I believe in pushing the boundaries, darker (sometimes morally ambiguous) emotions and imperfections.

The kind of love I write about is flawed just like my characters. And I hope by the end of it, you'll come to root for them just as much as me. Because love, no matter where it comes from, is always pure and beautiful.
