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.
Gods and Monsters
This was a very well written and moving book.
Definitely something unique
It’s not that often I run across a storyline that hasn’t been explored but when I read stories like Abel and Evies I can only hope to find more out there. I won’t giveaway spoilers but my gosh I just loved their road to finding happiness amongst all the hurdles they face. Sure there was somethings they did I didn’t agree on but that’s life! Figuring out how to do things your own way and learning from it all. Through it all this beautiful couple becomes immortal in my mind.
Unique and original
This was a book that was a unique, original and emotional read.
I was invested but when I reached the days chapters I was devastated. As each day passed I was crying, screaming and swearing. As it continued I was pulling my hair out. I didn't think anything good was coming. Ms. Kent you made me say a few, ok many choice words. The whole book was emotional but the last 20% was an emotional rollercoaster ride. I will tell you that there were many twists that I did not see coming.
Ms. Kent wrote a beautiful story that regarded many deep meanings in the lives of the characters. There where many emotional situations that made you think.
