The Unrequited by Saffron A. Kent **Release Blitz & ARC Review**




Title: The Unrequited
Author: Saffron A. Kent
Genre: Contemporary/Erotic Romance
Release Date: July 13, 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 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.

4 UNREQUITED STARS


"Unrequited love and insomnia are longtime friends of mine."


Layla Robinson is a new student and somehow she finds her way following a handsome and mysterious man. That man walks into a classroom in her campus and she finds herself amongst his students. Professor Abrams is definitely a tough one, an asshole and a challenge to her. But it seems that he also took notice of her.

Layla soon discovers that her professor is not only young and handsome, but also a married man and father. Something that will complicate things when they will get to know each other better. She will reveal to him her secrets and in turn they will try to help each other out.


"I want him because he's like me. He's in unrequited love and I want to save him, somehow."


Even though I had a few issues and I didn't always agree with the characters and their actions, I really enjoyed the writing of the author. This was my first book written by Saffron and it definitely intrigued me to read more by her.

To be completely honest I felt like I needed more romance in this story. I get that it's an erotic one and I like the bad heroes, but Thomas was constantly an asshole to her. Maybe I expected a steady progess in his character and I didn't see it happen, or maybe I was in a more lovey-dovey phase and that's why I wasn't 100% satisfied on this part.


"He is like my personal moon- unattainable, to be admired from afar. He is my cancer, slowly killing me, and I don't even mind."


Nonetheless, I loved the poetry, the dialogues, the characters and the scenery. It really felt like I was in the campus with them. I loved the little details, the secondary characters, I definitely rooted for her friends. I also enjoyed the plot twists and the little surprises here and there were definitely thumbs up during my reading experience.

If you need a hot and steamy student-professor romance, you need to pick this up :)
