About the Author
My name is Mia Asher. I'm a writer, a hopeless romantic, a wanderer, a dreamer, a cynic, and a believer. And, oh yes…I might be a bit crazy - but who isn't?

Words fail me ... I'm speechless ...
Mia Asher what a talented and gifted writer how could you even write a story like this ! So powerful , intense , depressing yet amazingly beautiful ... I'm stunned I can barely sort my thoughts to write a review.
This one of those books that's stays with forever it is a lesson of life. At the beginning I felt related to Cathy , I could feel every emotion and every thought that crossed her mind every question she was asking herself about her marriage. I felt her sadness as though it was mine to feel ...when she was remembering her past I believed her and felt every moment of happiness she went through with Ben .... That how good is Mia Asher's writing style ... As the story progressed it became very difficult at a point to follow . I never for once blamed Cathy I could understand where she was coming from . yes she was a selfish woman but sometimes in life you reach a point where you become so numb that you stop thinking about consequences of your acts and choices but that's just the way it is !
The story is heart wrenching , broken , achingly beautiful love story . It is absolutely unique . It is about love, mistakes I mean horrible ones !!! Life changing ... It is also about forgiveness and second chances and most of all about UNCONDITIONAL. LOVE . This book is really a very complicated read yet an Amazing one ! Definitely one of my all time favorites !
If you told me that Arsen was a story about cheating, you'd be so wrong. It's a story about passion and love and most of all... heartbreak. It's about a love so strong yet so broken. It'll break down all your preconceived notions of what the perfect romance is.
"When you were broken, I loved you for the two of us."
Why did I wait so long to read this one?!? At almost 500 pages, I devoured this one. I breathed it in and lived it. Mia Asher tore out my heart, put it back together, then said 'just kidding' and ripped it out again. I cried. I had no idea that it would get to me in such a way that it would hurt how it did. It's a heavy read. It'll burrow in and its message will keeping popping up in your head. Even weeks after I've read it, I still feel a hole in my heart from it.
If you love angst and forbidden romances, this is a must read. Parts will be tough to read. The emotion will bubble over and you may have to put it down and walk away for a short time. It won't be for long, though. You'll need time to sort through what you're feeling.... that is the measure of a great read.
Well, it was too much but it was a pain that hurt so good I couldn't put the book down. I got so totally immersed in the Cathy, Ben, Arsen world that life fell away and I lived in this book.
I completely fell in love with Ben. He is everything. I even found a spot in my heart for Arsen. And Cathy? Well, I didn't agree with anything she did, but Mia wrote her character in such a way that I ended up just feeling so badly for her, and wanting to wrap her up and take away all the hurt. And then I shook my head and wondered why the heck would I want to do that based on what she was doing, but that's the mastery of Mia Asher. She takes a taboo subject and puts this special spin on it that makes you empathize with the characters instead of villainizing them. Freaking brilliant!!
This will forever be one of those books that debates will be waged and teams picked and book boyfriends chosen. And I will just go on record now: #TeamBen
I hated Cathy, but at the same time I felt so sorry for her. It was heartbreaking and devastating to think of what she went through. BUT, I still don't condone what she did. Communication is so important in a marriage and it wasn't until the very end that she finally realized that. I was glad that she was honest with herself most of the time and didn't try to blame Ben for her choices, but gosh, I just wanted to smack her in the head! Especially from about 52% and on.
Have to say that I totally didn't see that epilogue coming though - my mouth dropped open and I was so hoping that HE didn't do what he decided to - at the last minute when he changed his mind I literally sighed with relief. The entire book is just tragic. I was sad, but satisfied with how the book ended.
