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.

IN GOOD HUMOR

I have a bone to pick with yall! who the hell thinks this is sexy? this was two steps away from fatal attraction. She is a stalker and a rapist. She gets her Step brother drunk and high to take advantage of him. She gets a tattoo for a teacher she knew for like a month and wasn't even dating. she stalks him, spies on him, and legit runs too his door when he called instead of just pick up the phone SHE RUNNS TO HIS OFFICE. I'm sorry but no. This book legit made me laugh out of sheer uncomfortableness it gave me. He needs a restraining order pronto!

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.

on the fence

really wanted to love this, but at the end, I really didn't. without giving too much away, my issue boils down with the love story. I felt it was forced and didn't feel at all like anything more than a rebound. FMC was definitely "in love", MMC seems to just wants a hole filled.

A struggle...

I bought this book based off a very vague description that I came across on a website. I thought it was going to be a coming of age story about a young woman struggling with limerance and stalking behavior- it was not what I expected. I found the main characters to be both one dimensional and boring and by the middle of the book, I was really struggling to maintain any interest in finishing it. I'm not really sure who the target audience is- as the main female character is a desperate and simple-minded teenager and her "love" interest is a predatory and violent, married father in his thirties. Gross. The dialog and scenarios are so second hand embarrassment inducing that they feel like they were haphazardly thrown together for no other reason than setting the scene for the frequent sexual interactions. It just felt like I was reading the script for an adult film and I was not into it.

Loved it!

I love stories that are about topics that most deem socially inappropriate. I loved this book from page 1. I loved the characters, it was hot, and was a great story. Highly recommend

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.
