Arsen | Book Review | Giveaway

I'm guessing this is how Mia felt when she hit "publish."

because this shit is crazy!


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.


Holy Fucking Shit! I have a huge book hangover from reading Arsen. I'm broken. I'm lost. I'm empty. I need more.
I had no preconceived notions of this book. I really didn't know what to expect, and sometimes that really works for me. The blurb was spot on, but wasn't really telling what the book was about. I found myself surprised with all the emotions I was feeling while reading this book.
I can totally relate to Cathy, and how she was feeling towards been having the miscarriages. I'm mean, losing something so personal and trying not to be broken is unrealistic. Mia (the author) wrote of a completely flawed heroine who made no excuses for her actions. She didn't justify anything she did and I feel like she was completely honest with herself. She wasn't living in a or telling herself that what she was doing was right. She was just trying to feel alive and numb the hurt and pain.
Arsen, whoa buddy. He comes sauntering his pretty ass off the plane and goes right for the kill. When he realizes Cathy is married, he decided to be in the friend zone and even lies to himself about the situation. I hope I dream of Arsen. He sounds like he would be a really good time, but having a good time in your dreams is not cheating on your husband, right? Please let me dream of Arsen. I fucking love that name Mia!
I'm not comparing Arsen to the "Love Me With Lies" series (The Opportunist, Dirty Red & Thief,) but if that is a series that you love, Arsen is right up your alley. Arsen is not an insta-love book, or an easy love. It is raw, gritty, complicated, relatable and how life truly is.
As I found myself crying through the last few chapters of the book, so many questions seemed unanswered. (You'll know when you get there, but I can't say anything because of spoilers.) Why did Arsen do what he did? Why did Ben do what he did? But then, Cathy finds her happily-ever-after and who she really loves. It seems like the book is coming to a nice end, and then a fucking tornado (not literally) comes through and blows the whole ending up leaving me broken, lost, empty and wanting more.

I immediately tweeted Mia about if there is another book. Arsen isn't even out yet and I find myself needing more just like Cathy. Arsen leaves me on a high. It is a drug. I need another hit so bad. I'm an Arsen addict and I need my next hit.
