IT'S RAW, IT'S HEARTBREAKING & VERY ADDICTIVE TOO

Be prepared because this tragic love story is full of heartache, regrets and pain. It tells the story of Cathy and Ben's perfect marriage and deep love they have for each other and this is also told in flashbacks of how they first met and fell in love. But slowly, after four miscarriages, the hurt and broken dreams becomes too much for Cathy and all that is left is a cold empty shell where her heart once beat. She wanted to numb the pain and escape her thoughts and her marriage and the only way she could do that was by cheating on her loving husband with Arsen.

Arsen is a gorgeous womanising blonde sex God but he changes his ways for Cathy then they have an all consuming obsessive affair and, at night, Cathy would return to her handsome loving husband's bed and she felt cheap, worthless and confused. But the lies became too much, jealousies flared and emotions became raw as the day came when she knew she had to walk away from one of the two men she loved and the dilemma and decision broke hearts and shattered souls. However, the heartbreak doesn't end there because further news will destroy and devastate but it also gives hope too and the return of bitter-sweet dreams.

This is a very emotional hard hitting love story that's about the effect miscarriages has on a woman whose only mental coping mechanism to block the pain out is to succumb to the sexual charms of a younger man who is already a shoulder to cry on rather than in her husband's waiting arms. Cathy has a lot of agonising decisions to make and, although I disagreed with the choice she ultimately made, I've never had a miscarriage (let alone four) so I cannot judge her or testify to the frame of mind that finally tipped her over the top.... and sadly the consequences were devastating.

But I do know this was a riveting heartbreaking listen that was very well written and had me pausing because I couldn't stand the pain that was coming next, then pausing because I wanted to savour and prolong the end and pausing before the eventual HEA ending. However, I wasn't prepared for even more heartache in the Epilogue. Told mainly from Cathy's POV but there are a few chapters when we get to share Ben and Arsen's feelings. Narrator was ok but I thought the male voices could have been better.

Worth a credit? If you think you can handle an amazing and brilliantly written controversial love triangle with lots of drama, sex, tender passion filled pleas and broken promises as three people's heart's are torn apart and the destruction that's left in it's wake then YES you'll find it, as I did, creditworthy. But it's not a listen that'll leave you with a happy feeling because lives were shattered, years were lost and someone had to walk away.

Loved!

I'm a huge fan of this book, and the audio did not disappoint. Thank you Mia. I will be wading through book hangover for days. Again. :)
