The Muse (Irresistible #3) by Anne Calhoun


The Muse (An Irresistible Novel) - Anne Calhoun

The Muse (Irresistible #3) by Anne Calhoun

Arden MacCarren can’t afford to lose control. Her family’s investment house has failed, their professional reputation is all but destroyed, and it’s up to Arden to hold the line. The only distraction she allows herself is a weekly drawing class where she can forget everything. Then she meets Seth Miller. When he poses in her class, strong, mysterious, and unbearably sexy, she can’t resist him. The only thing she can do is keep it purely physical—no emotions, no strings, and definitely no telling.
Seth understands responsibilities, both Arden’s and his own. During his last tour as a Marine he lost his best friends to an IED. He has a duty to look after his buddies’ survivors. All he allows himself is the stolen moments with Arden. But as he’s drawn into Arden’s battle with her demons, he comes face-to-face with his own. Seth will have to choose between a duty he can’t ignore and the longing to inspire Arden’s every desire—mind, soul, and body

My Review:
The only reason I really liked this book as much as I did was Seth. Arden was a win but Seth was what paid off the story for me. Although I had some reservations and mixed feelings it wasn't the solider part of his story that was believable it was the way he tried to find himself and some kind of steady peace in his life. That worked for me. Perhaps some of it was the art dynamic and Arden that woke his inner heart but I think that finding a bond with another person really helped him discover forgiveness. Not in others but for himself. I liked that kind of quality in him. It took me awhile to get into the story but once I fully invested in finishing it Muse was a great read.

My Rating:
4 Stars
