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.

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.”
My Rating: 5 stars
Sometimes you come across a book that makes your heart burst into a million pieces. Sometimes that certain book breaks your soul in half. That book is The Unrequited by Saffron A. Kent. This book truly moved me so deeply but also had me questioning myself a lot. No doubt about it but I struggled reading this book. I had to even stop on some scenes because I was deeply overcome with my emotions because of this book. It is actually a good thing because The Unrequited left an imprint so deep in my heart that after I finished reading, I could still feel the story. Such a beautifully emotional book that sunk me in, I was forever touched.
The Unrequited was a deeply emotional story that made my heart and soul bleed. Gut Wrenching. Soulful. Deep. Taboo. The Unrequited was a forbidden romance that pulled my heart strings. Dramatic. The Unrequited had so much angst that my mind was going round. Wow. How powerful was this book. I swear this book was pulsing with so much drama that I thought I would explode. It was more than a teacher-student romance but an experience of love that made me question my morals and my beliefs. But that is the beauty of the book, to have a book that makes you question what is right and wrong. Saffron A. Kent weaved an outstanding and engrossing story of unrequited love. She wrote such a fantastic book with a story I could definitely relate to. It was a book that left me so breathless. I freaking loved this story.
The Unrequited was a story about two broken and flawed characters suffering from unrequited love. I felt their pain. I felt their love. Layla and Thomas had that twisted love that had me on the edge. At first I hated them but they proved me wrong when they showed how painful their love was that it touched me. Layla started out as a stalker. I was awed of her character and they were times she left me speechless but it was her strength, her smart ass attitude and her care that impressed. Professor Thomas was on another league. This dude was a proper asshole lol. But man, I wanted to go on a wild ride with him. He was hot, dominant and sexy.
The Unrequited was a force of wind but with so much heart and emotion. I found another author that I will be stalking more of because she has impressed me with this book. This is a must read. Trust me, you have to read it.
About Saffron A. Kent
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.
