“I wanted to find someone who belonged with me like the stars belonged with the sky.”
Oh my goodness. This memoir is nothing short of intense and delves deep into real life hardships! My heart was thudding painfully in my chest with paranoia throughout it all. I felt like I was the one having the affair!
I admit, my heart went out for Levi, it hurt to see him so… unloved. C.J.’s and Levi’s marriage wasn’t healthy at all and it hurt to see how their fights brought out the worst from them.
I love how this memoir wasn’t downgraded and made cheap with detailed descriptions of their sex life. C.J. kept it professional and… classy. She focused rather on the adventures and uniqueness of her relationship with Grant and emotions Levi didn’t make her feel.
I couldn’t stop reading this book after picking it up. I only slept because my eyes couldn’t remain open anymore. The writing style is unique and I enjoyed how C.J. added her and Grant’s journal entries and text message throughout it all. Grant is so deliciously sweet and thoughtful, I could easily understand what attracted C.J., and everybody else, to him. I confess, I teared up in those last chapters and that last text message had me laughing uncontrollably!
I don’t have one single negative comment to make about this memoir. If anything, it taught me that the world isn’t black and white. I had a door closed off, inside of me, to the possibility of hope and true love. C.J.’s story changed that for me. Now my door has been creaked open and I can’t thank her enough.
C.J., I am so proud of you for sharing your story with all of us.
This was Affairytale indeed.
