Living without him was cruel and unusual punishment, even for my wandering heart.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Affairytale is a memoir of a woman who fell in love with the right man while she was in the wrong relationship. For years this had remained a secret desire, but their chemistry was palpable and they couldn't keep it platonic anymore.
True Love always finds a way. Sometimes...it starts with an affair.
This is a story that will stick with me for a very long time. I think it's one of my unforgettable reads. And I'm saying that in the best way that you can say that this is a memorable love story. And most importantly? A real love story.
I don't like judging people. I never liked that and I was always against that. In fact, I'm a hater when it comes to gossip. Maybe because I was grown up in a big city, visiting my village often and seeing how much people there thrive in gossip. I always hated shoving my nose in other people's business and judging them and that's why I want to consider myself as an open minded person. So, I will not judge CJ and her actions, because right or wrong, she's a person and who is perfect? Who has a flawless life without mistakes, maybe even regrets? Even though I felt bad for the husband, Levi, I could understand CJ and the reasons that pushed her towards Grant. I adored their journey and I'll be watching out for their updates.
Summer or winter, Grant or Levi, risk it or save it.
I felt like a stalker while reading the book, like I found a journal and I was reading it behind their back. But I admire how bold and brave she was. And mostly because it wasn't a known fact.. (view spoiler)[ Yes, people suspected that their relationship existed before CJ took a divorce, but certainly, no one knew for sure. (hide spoiler)] That makes me applaud for them even more. I loved how honest she was with her inner thoughts and feelings, with her actions, even when they didn't flatter her. She put herself out there, creased her image and how can you not admire that? Not all of us have the balls to do something like that.
I truly enjoyed this memoir, even though it was my first time reading one, I fell in love with this story and their journey. The writing was absolutely honest, raw and poetic in a way. It was such a heartfelt story and I loved it!! I even teared up at the last part of the book! Can't help but wish them happiness and to be together forever.
