Arsen 4.6 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 72 reviews.

This book was fantastic! Honestly though, I feel it will get mixed reviews, and some ppl may be annoyed w/how things play out. My rationale for that is that a woman who is not married or has never been married and experienced the trials and tribulations of marriage may not be able to fully identify w/the character and her decisions. For those who are married and have been through really rough or devastating times, I think u will be better able to identify and understand what the character is going thru emotionally. I loved the book! Hats off to u Mia Asher! Well done!

I can't get over how awesome this book was!!! I totally loved it from beginning to end, and I'm actually upset that its over, and I wish I never read it, so that I could start the whole thing over again. The book starts with a seemingly happy marriage, between Cathy and Ben, complete with super sweet flashbacks of how they met, that makes you fall in love with them. Then some unfortunate things happen to them and in comes a young hottie, Arsen, who ruthlessly pursues Cathy, and the temptation is almost insurmountable. But wait, she loves, Ben?  This story becomes a very angst ridden version of love, hate, adultery, passion and then again, love. It was an emotional roller coaster at times, that I would happily ride over and over. I actually loved and felt for each of the main characters. I totally understood where each one was coming from. I didn't think that Cathy was a cheating hussy, or Arsen, a manipulative cocky playboy, or Ben, just a trusting boring husband. I felt like I could be in each of their shoes, and do what they did. I don't know, this book spoke to me. You get married, things are great, times get tough, or you get bored, and all of a sudden things aren't so great anymore. Its a little bit of a warning tale, saying while the grass may seem greener on the other side, yours may be the right grass for you. Not everybody gets a happy ending, but its a great ride. I highly recommend this book. You will love it!

This book was a complete mess. I hated how the author created such a weak-minded character in a Cathy. Like come on. The love triangle between Cathy, Ben, and Arsen is comical to say the least. The author did a poor job in creating a believeable love story between Ben and Cathy. The amount of times I rolled my eyes while reading this book is unmeasurable. I had to scan through most of the sex scenes because they were poorly written and often times unnecessary.

Spoilers.........first off the herione in this book pissed me off! She goes through a very difficult time but handles it like a child.for someone who had so much support from so many people whi loved her she became selfish and hurt everyone whi loved her. I know everyone loves a happy ending byt she did not deserve the happy ending she got. She deserved to hurt for a very long time!

I loved this story I couldn't put it down from the beginning till the very end i was enrapted by Cathy's story. I felt so bad for her and as a woman i can feel her pain. Sometimes even though its not right that is how it be. You become so engrossed in your pain you try to find anything to pick you up and even though its not the right thing its the thing at the time to fix your problem or add to it in her case.

This book will literally tug at your heartstrings. Worth every minute spent reading it.

If this author was trying to write a book where her readers dislike the main characters, then she succeeded. There were few redeeming qualities in Cathy and Arsen, in particular. They were selfish and self absorbed and deserved each other. Poor Ben...

Happy endings dont always come wrapped up in neat little packages. Life is messy, love is not always kind. This story was about a love story...a real love story with real life mixed in. I cried. I felt so much emotion for these characters....i felt the pain like it was my our. A testement to the excellent writing of Mia Asher. I look forward to reading more from this author. Especially would love to read tbe rest of Arsens story. He is broken. I need to know where life takes him on his journey to forget.

A Very Powerful Painful Story. I have to say that it was and wasn't very difficult for me to give this book a 5-star rating, because how a book based around the plot that it has can be such an excellent read, but at the same time be one of the worst reads I have ever read, I will never understand. This book literally Destroyed me! It made me cry ugly tears. It made my heart hurt so frigging much for one character in particular, Ben. What a wonderful man. Mia Asher is a Genius! This book was absolutely brilliant, but as brilliant as it is, I can never read this book again. It was too much for me. My heart cannot take it. After having read Arsen, I can honestly say that I have never hated two characters more in my life than I did Cathy and Arsen. They were absolutely awful and so destructive, and in all honesty, I cannot find one redeeming thing about either of them. Shame on them!! Shame on them!! I understand that Cathy was at a bad place and I understand that anyone would be at a bad place after experiencing what she experienced, but there is no excuse for her actions, she was not the only one who was experiencing the trauma. She was selfish, self-centered, and just downright nasty. She honestly did not deserve Ben at all. Ben was the best. He was absolutely gorgeous--inside and out. He loved his wife more than words itself. The man was amazing. I honestly have no words for Arsen. Great, he is extremely good looking, but who cares. I don't. I truly did not like the ending of this book. Cathy did not deserve a HEA. Where were her consequences for all of the destruction that she caused???!! Ben deserved better than he got in this book. And Arsen...too bad. However, I must admit the ending left me wanting a book for Arsen as well. Mia Asher, you stripped me bare with this one. This book was one powerful rollercoaster ride. You are a brilliant storyteller. Keep on writing these wonderful stories. I cannot wait to read your next one, I just hope it doesn't hurt my heart as much as this one did. Bravo Mia Asher!! Bravo!!

Please please please tell me there's a sequel!?! Omg. Best book I've read this year. So much emotion. Well developed characters. My heart broke... not where I thought it would. I was waiting for the sobs...they snuck up on me though. I can't tell you how much I loved this book. It is definitely one of this best I've read. Well written. I could feel and understand the characters. I felt for Cathy. As much as it broke her heart she needed everything that happened to heal. I just really hope there's more!!

This book is raw and achingly truthful. If you been in those shoes you see the truth in the love and the lies and tbe beauty and sadness of achingly beautiful raw love. You will love and hate this story and tne characters. You will feel their pain and cry for tgeir sorrow and honesty andif you see it through the end then you will see the truth in real love. That it has the power to forgive, look past, release and heal. Real love will break you and make you over and over again.

Let me first say I loved the book. However, there are parts I absolutely hated, not because it wasn't a good book but simply because I felt for the characters and hated what was happening to them. I don't condone adultery so it was hard to read sometimes but it is reality and the book brought me to tears multiple times and that's what I love about it. When an author can bring me to tears by words...amazes me.  Mia Asher is an amazing writer!
