synopsis

I had an affair. The most forbidden and seductive affair, and fell in Love.

He was a rare gentleman, intelligent and gorgeous; a man every woman desired. Every cell in my body was telling me that he was my happily ever after. I was stuck in a marriage of mediocrity, I ached for red silk romance and carry me away passion, but not with my husband. I craved Him. Living without him was cruel and unusual punishment, even for my wandering heart.

Affairytale is a tantalizing memoir of sultry encounters, hidden grottos and secret hillside cabins. From the Land of Ten Thousand Lakes to the Southern shores of Maui you’ll fall in love with this tell-all memoir that pulls back the veil on infidelity and gives you rare look into hearts and bedroom of a real life extramarital affair. Woven with original love letters and scandalous text messages, this engrossing true love story is sure to break then win your heart.

True Love always finds a way.
Sometimes…it starts with an affair.

review

*Review copy received from the author for an honest review*

4.5 “I wanted the fairytale” stars!

Wow!!! I must applaud C.J. for having the guts to put her story out there for all to read. And it is quite a story!! Reading about infidelity hasn’t bothered me before, because I knew that the stories were made up for our entertainment, but it’s a different story when you go into a book like this, knowing it’s true. I had mixed emotions. I was excited because it sounded really good!! But I was also nervous that I would want to judge her for her actions.

“the man you are destined to be with is still out there.”

But it was nothing like I expected. C.J. has class. And yes, I know some people are going to read those three words and think WTF!! I can’t truly explain to you why I say that without ruining a lot of the story for everyone. But I will say that this isn’t just a quick jump into the sack kind of affair. There is so much love, hurt, and emotion to this story. After the first few pages I was hooked. And I am talking about shooing people away so that I could finish another chapter kind of hooked. It could have easily been a one sitting book for me if I hadn’t have had responsibilities. Damn responsibilities!! LOL

“I wondered, would every day with Grant be exciting? Or would a life with him eventually become monotonous and dull in a year or two?”

I became so trapped in C.J.’s world. She had me swooning with her, hurting with her, and even furious with her and at her. No one can or should judge someone for their actions until they have been in their shoes. And in no way shape or form did I judge C.J. for her actions in this story. True love and “the one” can be difficult at times, and it was especially difficult for her.

“Mostly I pondered why he kept showing up in my life and why I had an unbreakable attachment to him.”

This story covers MANY years!! And I kept thinking, wow, poor C.J. and Grant. To not be able to be with the one that you want for the time that this story went on has to be emotionally draining. I know I was drained!! LOL

“With him, if only for a fleeting moment, I felt content.”

So, hopefully without giving too many details away, I hope you all can see how much I enjoyed this story. It definitely should be on the top of everyone’s to be read list.
