Arsen becomes the air for Cathy to breathe and Ben just becomes a distant memory.
This book absolutely, 100%, tore me apart. You are not sure who you want to feel sorry for. You can't decide if you love or hate Cathy or if you are just sad for her. One thing I do know for sure is I loved Ben, I loved who Ben was for Cathy, I loved who Ben was period, I loved that he loved unconditionally, and hard. I loved that he could eventually forgive, and I loved how strong he was. Arsen was a whole other story for me. I began to burn for Arsen, to crave his next move, his next kiss, just like Cathy. He had a fire that was easily flammable to the reader. He made you need him. I loved him, I hated him, and I needed him. It's everything Cathy experienced.
This book was so well written. It had me feeling every emotion.. Every single one. It is a book that I would definitely read again and definitely recommend to my friends, hell I would recommend this book to a stranger on the street! It's that captivating!
Easy 5 stars for me. I feel like it deserves so much more.......
Bravo, Mia Asher on your debut. It was phenomenal!
