Review: The Unrequited by Saffron A. Kent

Reviewed by Ericka

I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this story because it has a trope that I try to stay away from (Infidelity). This was recommended to me and I am so glad that I decided to give it a chance read for myself because this book really surprised me. 

Layla is a college student that is trying to start over. She hurt her family in the worst way which caused her mom to resent her and give her the ultimatum of leaving home with nothing or going to school far from where she lives with financial support. She distanced herself from everyone because she believes that her past will come to the surface and they will leave her like those that she loves. Layla then meets a guy that she feels drawn to. She feels as if he is just like her. Lonely, depressed, and needing something to feel alive. She follows him on campus for a few days and then discovers that he is actually her poetry professor. Thomas is a poet that is struggling with his marriage. He moved to the small town and took a teaching job just so he could save his marriage. He knows that things are bad and his wife is fading from him but he is willing to give up everything including his writing.
