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.

Amazing

I read the ebook version of The Unrequited and fell in love with this story, with Thomas , with Layla , with Nicky with their struggles, passionate love ; with everything. And I thought, I couldn't possibly love it more than I already do... How wrong I was! After listening to The Unrequited , I know know that I Flove this book. That this story will stay with me forever, that I will revisit this characters again and again because this story is one of the best taboo read ever written.

Uncomfortable

This wasn't a bad book and at times I did enjoy the angst that was littered throughout and the occasional surprises, however, there were many many moments that I was physically uncomfortable listening to some of the things that the female lead took part in.

I enjoyed it except for the last sex scene

What did you like best about this story?

Great story. Great narrators

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I loved how I had a love hate relationship I had with Thomas. For most of the book I wondered how he’d be redeemed and worried what about the damage he was doing to Layla.

Any additional comments?

I really thought the last full sex scene did a disservice to the story. Though I understood some of the motivation for it, I felt it was more for the salicious aspect than furtherance of the story. Otherwise, I felt the sex scene were piviotal to the storyline.

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.
