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.
Let me begin by saying this: that cover! Wow. Now that I’ve drooled sufficiently over the cover porn I shall move on.
This book was divided into 3 parts which I liked. It gave distinction to the different stages of Evie and Abel’s relationship. We get to know these characters from childhood through their adult years. Their relationship isn’t easy. It’s actually quite tumultuous and, for me, wasn’t easy to witness at times.
Ultimately I can say this after reading Gods and Monsters: 1. Saffron A. Kent is a wonderful writer. Her writing is beautiful and exquisite. 2. This story just wasn’t for me. It was darker than I am used to and I found myself too close to some of the issues tackled in the book. Still, despite that the beauty of the writing shined through and I probably just wasn’t her correct audience. 3.5 Stars.
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.
