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.

When I first read the blurb for Gods & Monsters by Saffron A. Kent, I was not sure what I was expecting. The blurb is so intriguing, but the story you get is so unexpected. This is a story about a love from past to present and the road travelled to get to the end. A road that is not easy.
Abel Adams is shunned by all. This boy turned man who was nice to a girl. Evie Hart was warned away from Abel, but all she saw was the boy who spent time with her and made her feel special. This was a story about a forbidden love of sorts. When Abel and Evie meet, they form a bond they keep secret. But that bond turns to so much more the more time they spend together.
Abel broke my heart. Because he was seen as a monster, he was broken and lonely, but he was also strong, he only needed Evie to see himself through her eyes. Evie was so sweet, kind and trusting, but could also be stubborn. They came from different worlds but found comfort in each other.
Once we get to the second part of the book, the story shifts a little and I was surprised by it. The story was very emotional. I felt for both Evie and Abel, but with everything Abel has gone through, he was not always the guy you needed him to be. I think it took a while for Evie to see it. But love is never perfect and sometimes needs to find its own way.
I enjoyed this story though I would have personally loved to see into their future a bit. This is a forbidden love story with some tough moments, but a story of love none-the-less. I am looking forward to reading more from this author!
