Affairytale: A Memoir by C.J. English is a raw and real story of a woman who was living an unsatisfactory married life with a husband she didn’t love. When she got pregnant with her daughter, Dani, C.J. knew that she had to marry Levi for the sake of her daughter. Being married to a man whom she didn’t love was not easy and Levi was not making it easy for her too. She was miserable and there seemed to end to her existence. Soon she was depressed.
She met her brother’s best friend, Grant, one summer. The attraction was instant and undeniable, but they both kept their feelings in check, no matter what. C.J. remained faithful to a husband she didn’t love. Nine years after their first meeting, C.J. and Grant meet again and this time they are unable to contain their emotions and feelings for each other. What happens next would change their lives forever. An extramarital affair can be exciting and thrilling, but when it is true love, it feels right. Is C.J. making the right choice? Is she and Grant meant to be?
Like I said, this was a raw and gritty novel. You cannot help but sympathize with C.J. She did exactly what most women would do for her children and she suffered a great deal for her decision. Grant was such an amazing character. He was strong, a perfect companion, and a shoulder to lean on. He never pushed or prodded C.J. and never, ever made her choose between him and her life. He became her life after he literally stole her heart with his kindness and charm. This is an emotional and heartwarming novel that will make you sigh with happiness. It is a must-read, folks!
