99 6 12 14 All Consuming Stars Photo credit Pinterest Affairytale CJ and Grant English photoshoot Affairytale, A Memoir, was unlike any other reading experience I ve encountered EVER Let me preface my review with the fact that I have NEVER read a non fiction book I guess I always thought non fiction was autobiographies and I, quite frankly, could care less about famous people s self absorbed life stories I had no idea non fiction has love stories This is the life love story of a young woman named Charmaine nicknamed C.
J her story to tell and nobody else s And what a beautiful one it was Affairytale takes place in Minnesota and spans a timeframe of twelve years CJ is our narrator and we take a journey in her shoes one day at a time From those early days of first love with Levi, th Everyone gets a do overI m pretty sure this is the only memoir I have read to date I loved the author s ability to paint herself in her best and worst light and tell her story To be honest, I found the first 40 percent of this story pretty slow going and wished she had givenin most areas For example, not until after forty percent did I have any connection whatsoever to Grant the man of her dreams, the man she feels she should have married It was all just glossed under the umbrella that they had a lot in common and continuous fantastic conversation each and every summer However this could be reduced to the fact that this is in fact a memoir He was my greatest loss, yet I hadn t even had him yet Once C.
J and Grant actually address their feelings the story takes flight and so does the affair This is the point where I started my fall for Affairytale is a memoir, a story about a young woman who marries the wrong man, and as the years go by, finds herself unable to deny the true love of her life An honest account of an affair, and falling in love It s heartbreaking, yet beautiful I can t judge CJ s story, what s right or wrong, I haven t lived her life In the end, I simply wish them all happiness and love.
The path to happily ever after isn t always straight and narrow, sometimes it s messy We all make choices, as flawed beings, sometimes those choices may not seem right At some point in our lives, we will all bare our share of shame, disappointment and weakness That s life, and that s loveIf all marriages are unhappy and take work, then mine was no different I stayed because I was foolish enough to believe those things were true CJ has found her soul mate, but 5 Consuming gripping yet Beautiful stars First of all I just want to say how awed I am by this author not only because this is her first book but because she has given us something special she s put her heart and soul into this book This isn t a fiction Novel it s A.
Memoir, it s her life it s her experience its raw, intense and had me gripped at the edge of my seat and reading at all hours to see where it was going and how frankly she became who she is today This is C.
J and Grants story and although it is an Affair for me it didn t feel wrong nor much of an affair as I connected to both and saw C.
J s struggles at the beginning, it didn t phase me if your worried about Angst I really honesty don t think you need to worry here again just My point of view What s it aboutDon t when young want love we want t My love, you were so worth the wait Affairytale is a unique read exposing the the ugliness of a broken relationship and the transformation of one woman who found her true love before it was too late In reality, I am not a fan of books with cheating Being a married woman myself, I don t want to question my own marriage I don t want to expose the cracks that surface when times are difficult I don t want to experience the anxiety of what if or why not And yet, as I fearfully made my way through this read, I found admiration for a woman who never stopped fighting for herself I found courage in the knowledge that I am exactly where I am meant to be And as I finished this read and snuggled closer to my husband, I found peace in his arms Emotionally exhausted and on the brink of a melt
FOUR STARS BR with Mel and Sharon I wanted to live, really live before I die I wanted to know what it feels like to be loved by the man of my dreams.
Levi was the man I couldn t live with, and Grant was the man I couldn t live without This is the second non fiction book I ve ever read of my own free will The first was Rob Lowe s autobiography, and let me just say, I enjoyed C.
J s book farThat s really a compliment because back in my early days, I was head over heels in love with Rob Lowe In the beginning of the story, I started to question if it was a good idea to read someone s real life memoirs because what if I ended up hating this book It would be hard to criticize the author I m not going to lie, in the beginning I was having a tough time liki 5 riveting STARSI ached for red silk romance, and carry me away passion, and I ached for it with nobody else but him He was a breed of charming I couldn t resistI just read the most beautiful and unique story Colour me surprised, but this book was one of my absolute favourite reads in a long time, quite possibly the last few years And it s non fiction, a memoir Everything is real and it just makes it all so muchwonderful I laughed, I was heart broken, I got angry and I wanted to scream and I cried tears of joy Stunning book about a woman who had an affair and the consequences that came with it.
Affairytale was a gamble for me C.
J English is a first time author and she very kindly asked me to review her book We all know how that doesn t always pan out, but this time around I got a complete win I actually feel like buying copies and givin
