Review: Gods and Monsters by Saffron A Kent

Gods & Monsters

From the Author of The Unrequited, comes an unconventional tale of coming of age.
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.

This was definitely an “unconventional tale of coming of age.”  Sheesh, I was not expecting that. But I loved it all the same. Bottom line… this was a story about first love. I love these stories. First loves are all consuming, no rational thoughts survive, and every action is based on emotion. I love experiencing first love over and over without my personal emotional trauma…lol. Evie and Abel gave me the fix I craved. Abel was a maniac when it came to “his Pixie“. He lost his way at times, but always came back to her. This story had all the feels, all the crazy, and all the love. I really enjoyed this one.
