Publisher's Summary

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.

Two broken people find forbidden love 💔

First off Anna Riordan did a top notch job of carrying the brunt of the narration weight. My only complaint... not enough Joe Arden. If you're going to have a talented narrator like Joe he should have done all the male parts. Anyway, on to the review.
This is one of those books that's so morally wrong, it's a sin to enjoy it as much as I did. Thomas is married with a child and Layla is his obsessed stalking student. While his wife Hadley is in her own postpartum world, she is neglectfully absent. Is this a good reason for Thomas to play the field? Of course not! And yet I still I couldn't help but be submerged in this well-written, angst-ridden drama with it's heart breaking casualties.
The broken Layla is certainly not innocent but after an emotionally traumatic incident she's riddled with self blame and insecurities. It's a shame she can't see her own self worth. These 2 find common ground in the requited love that forms a mutual dependency for each other. Eventually love will let the light into their darkly tainted lives.. But will it be with each other? You ABSO-FREAKING-LUTELY have to spend the credit and find out.

Forbidden

Hot student/teacher romance that is forbidden in more ways than one. The heroine has issues she is aware of and she is actively trying to work on. I liked her despite her slightly obsessive tendencies. I felt for the hero for reasons I can't disclose without spoiling! He is an a**hole but for some reason I fell for him anyway. The story is steamy and angsty.

Narration was perfect! Love Anna's voice.

A Breathtaking Story of Finding Love

I’ve heard so many great things about this book. This was my first read by Author Saffron Kent and the hype definitely was justified.
This is a powerful story. It’s tragic yet beautiful. It’s passionate, scorching hot and sexy as all get up.
This story was consuming!!!
Thomas is a poetry professor and is dealing with personal issues that make him take his frustrations out on his students. He’s cocky, rude, and completely unattainable.
When Layla happens to pass Thomas she can’t help but be captured by this mans presence.
Something in him calls to her on an entirely different level.
Unable to stay away, Layla decides to take this professors poetry class where she soon discovers that mister tall, dark, and handsome is also mister one hundred percent married!!
As Layla battles her own demons she finds comfort in a slow building friendship she’s developed with Thomas. But as Thomas faces issues at home, he begins to find what his missing at home, with his young beautiful student.
This is a whirlwind romance that digs deep in your gut with feelings that will make you think. Emotions that will make your heart race and your palms sweat.
I highly enjoyed this story and loved the authors style of writing. It’s smooth and fulfilling. The words flow and the plot is unique. Author Saffron Kent definitely created a work of art. Absolutely Beautiful.

Toxic and Unromantic

I don’t think I’ve ever given a book one star, but this one definitely deserves it. The writing is so childish that I felt like I was listening to a book about an adult twelve-year-old rather than two adults with a bit of an age gap. Layla says, “You can’t fall out of love. You just can’t.” First of all, of course you can; it happens all the time. Secondly, “you just can’t” is not a good explanation as to why she thinks that! Why doesn’t the author explain why she thinks anything? I don’t get it. On another note, I’m certainly not a prude when it comes to reading romance novels, but after 50 pages of the same sexual encounter, it gets old really fast. I cannot emphasize enough how much I dislike both of the main characters. Aside from the fact that there is almost zero character development, They are both terrible people. And I don’t mean in a interesting way. I don’t mind reading from a villain’s perspective and I enjoy when an author makes me sympathize with a bad person. However, it does not feel like the author wanted us to sympathize with the awful behaviors so much so that I felt like the author wanted us to glaze over the abusiveness and manipulative tendencies. It’s like it wasn’t a bad thing or it was just normal. But on the contrary, the relationship between the two main characters was extremely toxic and I found myself hoping that they would end up alone. I didn’t feel the love between the two characters, all I felt was the lust. The female narrator did the best she could with what she was given. The male narrator was okay, but there were only like four chapters from Thomas’s perspective, so it was kind of pointless.

I didn't know what to expect

First - the narration was great, but I was disappointed there wasn't more Joe Arden, He did about 15% of the entire book. But the narration was very good. I just like more Joe.

This book took you a lot of places, was there cheating, lying, rape? All of that actually shook out. It was an entertaining book, lots of hurt and shattered characters. Stay with it, it all works out.

⭐️ [4/5 Stars] ⭐️

This definitely isn’t for everyone, that’s for sure. There’s something about forbidden romances that’s so alluring to me though, and I looooove reading them. It’s like a guilty pleasure. You know it’s wrong but it also feels so right at the same time, and that’s the exact feeling I got through this whole book and for Layla and Thomas’ relationship.

I used to read a lot of fan fiction (okay I still do) but I’d read it on archive of our own and not on wattpad because let’s be real—most of that is trash. The fics I read had a certain tone to them that was e x a c t l y like this. I don’t know what it is and I’ve never been able to put my finger on it exactly, but I felt it and it made me so happy. It’s like, too poetic? In the best way. Like it’s so poetic that it doesn’t feel real or possible? I don’t even know if that makes sense, ugh, but anyway. I liked the tone of this; it was dark and sexy and the smut was incredible. CHEFS KISS. Magnifique! 8/10. Their sexual chemistry was off the charts.

I guess the reason I can’t give this five stars is because I couldn’t entirely connect with it. Like I was reading it and I loved it, but I didn’t fall in like I do with other books and I didn’t fall into the characters or the storyline. The main thing that grasped me was their chemistry and the way they were together.

The read as a whole was sexy, steamy and so thrilling. It’s definitely up there on the dark romance scale.
