Darling Arrow,

I shouldn’t be writing this. 

It’s not as if I’m ever going to send you this letter, and there are a million reasons why.

First of all, I was sent to this reform school as a punishment for a petty, totally inconsequential crime. Not to ogle the principal’s hot son around the campus.

Second of all, you’re a giant jerk. You’re arrogant and moody and so cold. Sometimes I think I shouldn’t even like you.

But strangely your coldness sets me on fire. 

The way your athletic body moves on the soccer field, and the way your powerful thighs sprawl across that motorcycle of yours, make me go inappropriately breathless. 

But that’s not the worst part. 

The worst part is that you, Arrow Carlisle, are not only the principal’s hot son. 

You also happen to be the love of my sister’s life. 

And I really shouldn’t be thinking about my sister’s boyfriend, or rather fiancé (I overheard a conversation about the ring that I shouldn’t have).

Now if I can only stop writing you these meaningless letters that I’ll never send and you’ll never read…

Never yours,


NOTE: This book is a standalone and DOES NOT contain cheating


Saffron Kent is hands down the queen of writing smut. Her characters are pure fire on the page and their connection is deliciously intense. Kent is an auto buy author for me but I have to admit that even I was a little nervous when I started reading because I did not have an immediate connection to Salem. My thoughts definitely changed on her as the story progressed but she was, at one point, on the annoying side. I think a lot of that is because the set up for this story was weaker than what I’m used to with Kent but once the story got rolling, I didn’t want to put this book down. I also think that because I didn’t connect with Salem right away that the informal, conversational style of writing that Kent has wasn’t working for me. But once Arrow became a part of the story I was easily swept up in everything and I was back to being fully appreciative of Kent’s writing. I am obsessed with the slow burn of Arrow and Salem’s relationship. The physical aspect was obviously insanely good but I really enjoyed seeing the emotional side of their relationship grow. Their story kept building to such heights and when it peaked it was so good. If you love hot, sexy, possessive, age gap/forbidden romances than you will enjoy this one a lot. There are trigger warnings for death of a parent, abusive/toxic parenting, and emotional/verbal abuse.

“…filling my lungs with his cancer while loving him with all my heart.”
