This book does not fit into a simple category. Or it would be “Fucking phenomenally mind blowing” category.
Saffron A Kent delivered a masterpiece.
I can’t find another word to describe it.
I have finished it almost 2 weeks ago and it’s still so fresh and raw in my mind. I am in a blissful state of euphoria. What a journey Thomas and Layla had to take to finally find peace! What a fucking journey!!!!
This whole book is poetry.
The prose is flawless. The characters quite the contrary.
The honest portrait of characters not so perfect, dare I say, quite disturbed, is a beauty. Lovers of words, and life, real life, ugly reality will fall for Layla, a woman driven by her heart. I can’t express how wonderful Layla is. She is one of the most driven woman I’ve ever read. And do not take that lightly, she knows no bounds, does every thing in excess, will make you SO uncomfortable at times but is also the most selfless woman ever. #Laylaismynewbestfriend
Thomas, on the other hand, is defenseless when it comes to Layla, he can’t deny her as much as he tries to. He is battling his demons, slowly setting them free, with words and sex and he’s abusing Layla in doing so. I should add that Layla is willingly accepting everything Thomas gives her.
Both Layla and Thomas will try to fight what they are together but sometimes it is just impossible.
On another note, Thomas is one dirty dirty man… #IwanttododirtypoetrywithThomas

This review is not complete, I am just overwhelmed by the feelings the book gave me.
and in one breathless moment, I decide to go for it. It’s okay. I can take the blame for it later.
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.
Swallowing, I nod. “Yes.”

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.
