Despite the fact that the heroine in this book was a selfish bitch I'm giving it 3 1/2 stars. I was unable to connect with Cathy, and even though the author did a great job describing the pain that she felt, I wasn't ever able to understand her stepping out on Ben. The title of the book is Arsen, named after the man who was too much for her to resist. The truth is I could give a flying fuck about Arsen. I didn't feel the pull towards his character at all. The one likeable character from this story is Ben, and he's the one who got the short end of the stick.
