New Release + Review – GODS & MONSTERS by Saffron A. Kent

Title: Gods & Monsters
Author: Saffron A. Kent
Genre: Contemporary/New Adult Romance
Release Date: February 22, 2018

Blurb

He was an artist. She was his muse.

To everyone in town, Abel Adams was the devil’s spawn, a boy who never should have been born. A monster.

To twelve year-old Evie Hart, he was just a boy with golden hair, soft t-shirts and a camera. A boy who loved taking her picture and sneaking her chocolates before dinner. A boy who made her feel special.

Despite her family’s warnings, she loved him in secret for six years. They met in empty classrooms and kissed in darkened church closets. Until they couldn’t.

Until the time came to choose between love and family, and Evie chose Abel.

Because their love was worth the risk. Their love was the stuff of legend.

But the thing about legends is that they are cautionary tales. They are made of choices and mistakes. And for Abel and Evie, the artist and the muse, those mistakes come in the form of lights, camera, sex.

NOTE: This is NOT a paranormal or a priest romance.

ONE BILLION STARS because Saffron A. Kent!!!! 

Abel Adams was hated by everyone in his town. All his life he’s been made out to be a monsters when he was nothing but an innocent child caught in the deeds of his parents.

Evie Hart was the town’s princess. All her life she was warned off from Abel and forced to stay away from him.

But love always finds a way. 

Abel and Evie fell in love as mere kids. They carried on their love in secret till it grew to big to be contained. And when the time came to choose between her family and Abel, Evie chose him because their love was worth the risk.

Together in a strange city, Abel and Evie find out that falling in love in easy but living with it when your hearts have been tainted with anger and pain is the real test. Will their mistakes catch up to them and destroy everything they built? Or can they overcome those hurdles to prove that their love is truly the stuff of legends.

I just like to come out and say that I am insanely proud of Saffron for writing this hauntingly beautiful story. This story wasn’t easy to read so I can’t even imagine how difficult it would have been for her to write. I had to take breaks in between because the intensity was making my heart ache. But I loved every goddamn minute of it.

Abel and Evie have a difficult relationship. Both of them loved too intensely and couldn’t figure out ways to channel their love in a way that wouldn’t hurt the other. It took them time but they got to the part where they realised what the other truly needs. Following their love story was a beautiful journey. It had it’s ups and downs and it truly came out asLEGENDARY. 

My heart hurt because of all the things Abel and Evie went through, separately and together. No kid deserves to go through so much unnecessary pain. The fact that those two find the purest of love in each other was just the work of fate. It might not have been perfect but it was meant to be.

I have been a fan of Saffron’s from her first book and I always will be. The woman writes like a true poet. Her words touch your heart, make it ache and then soothe it in the most glorious of ways. I’ll be looking forward with baited breath for more extra-ordinary stories from this brilliant writer.

5 Stars!

Excerpt

Abel drops his head on my shoulder with a sigh and places soft but wet kisses on my collarbone.
“The minute you turn eighteen, I’m picking you up, throwing you over my shoulder and driving you down to the nearest courthouse so you can say I do,” he rumbles, still kissing me, tattooing those words on my skin.
My hands bury themselves in his hair as my back arches toward him, craving the rough terrain of his chest against my soft, rounded breasts, shooting sparks all over.
“You haven’t even asked me n-nicely, yet,” I whimper, baring my throat to his exploring mouth. He hasn’t. It’s been over a year since he brought it up at the treehouse and I told him no. Since then, he likes to joke about it but he’s yet to ask me formally.
“I don’t have to. I already know the answer.”
“A little too cocky, aren’t you?”
“Oh yeah, that’s definitely what I am.” He chuckles, sucking in the skin of my neck, making me shiver and blush. Oops. Double entendre.
The way he’s tugging on my skin is translating into a melty tugging down below. “Abel, no. That’s gonna leave a mark.”
He growls and looks up. The brown of his eyes is completely gone, a drop of honey drowned by a black lake of desire. “One day I’m gonna kiss you in the front of the whole world and if they don’t like it then fuck them.”
I read the frustration in his tone, the suppressed anger, and it hurts my heart. No one should be made to hide their love. No one. It’s too pure, too beautiful to ever keep hidden. I caress his pulsing jaw. “Okay. Kiss me at our wedding, then. In front of the whole world.”
A slow smile spreads over his lips and I want to fill my mouth with it. “So, you saying yes?”
I shake my head at him and give him a smirk. “Maybe.”
He plants a hard kiss on my mouth. “Kidnapping you it is, then.”
“Oh my God, you’re crazy.” I laugh.
But he swallows it up with his mouth. He’s kissing me, really kissing me. Like, he’s lost all patience with me and he can’t be a good guy anymore. He needs to be bad. He needs to suck both my lips into his mouth and drink my flavor straight from the tap. He needs to bite into my flesh to get to it, dig his way inside the pores and fuse us together.

Release Boost + Excerpt – THE UNREQUITED by Saffron A. Kent

Title: The Unrequited
Author: Saffron A. Kent
Genre: Contemporary/Erotic Romance
Release Date: July 13, 2017

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.”

the unrequited

This is going to be really long so now would be the right time to turn away!

I wish I could give this book all the stars in this galaxy because this book was literally one of THE BEST BOOKS I’ve read this year. I was so bloody hungover that I didn’t read anything for 2 freaking days!!!!

Layla Robinson is hurting. The love of her life has never reciprocated her feelings and the things she did have made it so that she can’t ever face him. Determined to turn her life around and move on from the stalking and obsessing, she starts afresh in college.

As fate would have it, she keeps seeing a blue-eyed man who fascinates her to no end. He is also the new poetry professor – the married poetry professor.

Layla believes that this rude arrogant genius might just be the perfect distraction. She is unbothered by his glares and rude taunts but she sees that behind all this is a kindred spirit. Professor Thomas Abrams might just be too dangerous for Layla’s heart.

I waited to read this book and then I waited some more. Then after starting I wanted to go back and start it all over again. To say that I am obsessed with this story would be a gross understatement. I want to read and re read this book till I can recite it by heart.

Layla is my everything and I adore her beyond the realms of sanity. She is so lost, so much in pain, so confused and always blames herself for the littlest wrong things. But at the same times she is so precious and knows how to be strong and tackle life head on no matter what it’s throwing at you. I wanted to hug her and tell her that everything will be all right. She is without a doubt one of my most favourite characters I’ve read this year . She’d probably be my best friend if she was real.

I think I understood her struggles and really felt the war she was facing with what is right and what she needs to be happy. And believe it or not she is bloody funny. I LOVED LOVED the way she never took shit from Thomas and gave it back as good as she got. (Though I also really love how putty she was in his hands *heart eyes*)

HOLY MOTHER OF HOTNESS Thomas Abrams! GOD I get shivers when I think of that man. He is absolutely unreal and damn if that doesn’t make me want him more. I didn’t even care that he was being a rude jerk. He just cleared his throat or said a word and I could only think about how much I love this man. The sadness that surrounded him, the angst inside of him was so profound that you couldn’t help but be drawn to it. I wanted to take away his pain and help him no matter what. He is so filthy, so hot and such perfect brooding poet. I love him forever and EVER.

What could be better than a book that makes you think about things you never encountered like when have you ever thought about people acting out because they are unloved? The emotions that this book made me experience are unreal. I was such a mess of convoluted emotions and painful second-hand heartbreaks. I didn’t know what to do with myself. The intensity of this book blew my mind away. NOTHING could have prepared me for it.

And I really truly 100% believe that Thomas and Layla were meant for each other. GOD these two together make me ugly cry but at the same time fill my heart with immense giddy happiness. I’m probably going to read this book once every month. So really, do yourself a favour and READ THIS!!!

5 Stars!
