Arsen: A broken love story by Mia Asher

One glance was all it took…

I’m a cheater.
I’m a liar.
My whole life is a mess.

I love a man.
No, I love two men…
I think.

One makes love to me. The other sets me on fire.
One is my rock. The other is my kryptonite.

I’m broken, lost, and disgusted with myself.

But I can’t stop. This is my story.
My broken love story.

“I can feel myself withdrawing from him. From his love. From my marriage. And there’s nothing I can do to stop it. Nothing.”

OMG, right from the beginning I thought “This book is going to be AMAZING!” Cathy has given up on her marriage and her husband Ben. This is her story and boy what an emotional ride Mia Asher has given us!!

It is raw and real. Anyone that has been through a breakup can totally relate to the feelings of disconnect that Cathy is feeling at the beginning of the book. The issue that is driving Cathy away from Ben hit me like a ton of bricks and it brought about a sadness that touched me to the core.

Then Arsen enters the picture. He is young, sexy, and wants Cathy. For quite awhile they keep their attraction under control, but then one day it changes. I really wanted to dislike Cathy at this point, but Asher’s writing style made it hard to do so.

“Cathy, meeting you was chance, falling in love with you was destiny, and loving you is my reason to exist.”

BEN!!! He is quite possibly the most realistic male character I’ve ever seen in a work of fiction. He is one of the good guys. Normally when reading a book, I mainly identify with the female lead, but in Arsen, I identified most with Ben. Anyone that has had their heart broken, been disappointed, and publicly humiliated will identify with him. He simply wants to love his spouse and enjoy married life.

Arsen is gut-wrenching. This book is about grown adults who are in realistic situations. It gets ugly, painful, and even at some parts it is beautiful. It is one of those books where you could switch out the character’s names and put people from your real life and it would read just the same. This book stayed with me long after I finished the last page. If you have not read Arsen yet, then I would HIGHLY recommend it!!!
