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.

Review:

Rating: 2 out of 5 stars


The books is divided into 3 parts. For me only the first part was good. Abel and Evie live in a small town where the people are very religious and it has the kind of people who are only good as punch bags. Both characters had difficult upbringings, but for the first part, they seemed to be okay. I liked them. We got to see the characters aging. I am not going to say growing up because the whole time I was reading the book I felt like I was dealing with kids. Evie has just gotten her period at the beginning of the book (around the age of 12) and the first part ends the night of her prom. The second part is where everything goes downhill. It's the complete opposite of the first part. There we had religion and in this part, we get a ton of sinful things happening. Like the main characters making a movie where they dance horizontally if you get my meaning (not saying the word because Amazon is weird about that). It's also the part where Abel's character is ruined and he becomes a person who doesn't consider anyone but himself when he made some decisions. Evie is not doing much and I felt like she just was there. When the third part came, I was honestly thinking that both characters should see that they shouldn't be together and call it quits. At first, their relationship seemed so good, but in the end, it was ruined and I wished to see both of them ending up with someone else. The story goes on for years and the characters had almost no development. Abel tried to fix himself, but his time was limited. I wouldn't recommend the book.

Author Bio

Writer 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.

She is represented by Meire Dias of Bookcase Agency
