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.
NOTE: Please be aware that this book deals with sensitive topics like cheating. 18+ Only.
Review by Lorena
This book left me at WOW!
Love student/teacher books, so taboo and forbidden.
We get Layla and Thomas a student and professor, both damaged souls. Layla was different from any other girl. She wasn't afraid to show her emotions and she loved to take risks.
Thomas is a professor who is rude, arrogant and mean who seems to care only about his poetry. He has neglected his wife and now his wife is at a point where she doesn't know if she wants to stay married to Thomas. She's suffering and has problems and Thomas just isn't there for her when she needs him the most.
Thomas has been offered a job as a professor at the university so they had to move back to the small town where he will be teaching. He hates the small town but he moved to try and make his marriage work.
Layla takes all the mistreatments from the professor because she's obsessed with him. Something about the professor has drawn Layla and she can't seem to stay away from him. She tries especially when he insults her and puts her down, but she has this pull towards him that she just can't seem to stay away from him. She tolerates his bad attitude because it seems like she loves that type of treatment. Something about getting treated badly attracts her.
Layla and Thomas have their bad moments but they also have their good moments. There are times he lets his guard down and is actually a nice person towards Layla. As much as he loves his wife, she just isn't there for him and having Layla there for him, he does what any other neglected man would do. He goes with who pays attention to him.
Can Layla and Thomas continue their love affair or will end?
Layla and Thomas had such an unconventional love affair. The turmoil of this affair has left Thomas fighting his love for his wife and the lust (or was it love?) for Layla. Thomas still believed he loved his wife, but deep down it seemed like he started falling for Layla at some point in their love affair, he just didn't realize it at that point.
This book sucked me in and I was unable to put it down.
The book was hot, it had some very steamy sex scenes that left you squirming.
I totally would 100% recommend this book!
About the Author
Writer of bad romances. Coffee Addict. White Russian Drinker. Imaginary Ballet Dancer and poetess. Aspiring Lana Del Ray of the book 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.
