Synopsis

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.**

My Review

Gods & Monsters by Author Saffron A. Kent it is a mature YA to NA, forbidden love novel.

Evie and Abel fell in love.
Evie and Abel from above.
Evie and Abel on their road.
The life they chose, to carry a load.
And then things happened….

“…legends don’t die. Our story’s gonna live forever. Abel and his Pixie.”

Honesty is the best policy, right?!? I have no idea how to write this review. I was a wreck for Evie and Abel. So much pain. So much anger. So unfair. So tortured. I loved them. I hated them. I wished for their world to turn faster, then wished for it to slow in time so that I could soak up more of their everything.

“You deserve someone who’s not blind. Who can see. Who can understand things, gauge things. Who’s not prone to mistakes. You deserve someone perfect.”

I could really identify with Evie. Growing up in a hyper-religious home can be difficult, especially when you realize that many things were done for the sake of “religion” and not because of God. I could also empathize with Abel. Anger at The Creator. Anger at those He created. I think it’s a part of life we grow and learn through, finding ourselves and Him in the midst of it.

“I love you. Don’t look for me. Don’t run. No one’s chasing you.”

I love how Author Saffron Kent took so many things meant to destroy and used them to refashion life into something whole. When an author can write a story that grows legs and becomes a creation, one that crawls inside a reader’s heart and plants itself, producing a living and breathing thing, you know THIS is a read not to be missed.

“I think maybe I’ve found the very thing we’ve been looking for. I’ve found something that goes beyond intimacy into the realm of revolutionary. I’ve found an outlet of our anger. I’ve found our rebellion.”

Gods & Monsters was a forever-kind-of-love read that was real, raw, and inexplicably alive.

“Abel and Evie for the win!”
