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.

If you’ve read The Unrequited then you know Saffron’s work and that this is NOT a classical romance novel. It’s full of sad moments that will make you cry, angry and damn right smile by the end of it. It definitely is not for the lighthearted that much I can guarantee.
Abel and Evie aka Pixie form a bond early on. Even though everyone is against them they don’t realize they are each other’s greatest enemies.
The story shows just how much one can destroy what he or she loves the most…and then when the time is right begins to repair the damage.
Abel loves his Pixie with such force it can be a bit overwhelming for some readers.
» I want you, Pixie. I want you in my life and if I have to sell everything I own, even my soul, I’ll do it. My mom used to say people with no souls are monsters. I don’t mind being one if I get to keep you. And I’m keeping you, Evie. Even God can’t snatch you away from me.«
Once again I can’t find the right words to form a descent review for you but all I got to say is this:
I love Saffron and her ability to pull me into the story when all I want to do is close my eyes because when you read her work you get that feeling at the back of your neck that tells you something BIG is about to happen and it won’t be pretty. I’m a NOT huge fan of dark romance but I’m a HUGE fan of Saffron A. Kent 🙂

Writer of bad romances. Aspiring Lana Del Rey of the Book World.
Saffron is a big believer in love (obviously). She believes in happily ever after, the butterflies and the tingling. But she also believes in edgy, rough and gutsy kind of love. She believes in pushing the boundaries, darker (sometimes morally ambiguous) emotions and imperfections.
The kind of love she writes about is flawed just like her characters. And she hopes by the end of it, you’ll come to root for them just as much as she does. Because love, no matter where it comes from, is always pure and beautiful.
