Review of My time in the Affair by Stylo Fantome

Buy the Book
my time in the affair   Synopsis
I made a conscious decision to cheat on my husband.
Now, before you judge me, hear my story. Hear how much I'm like you, how similar my thoughts are to your own. Yes, I'm a horrible person. Yes, I've done horrible things. Yes, I don't deserve forgiveness. Yes, bad things happened because of my actions.
But I'm willing to bet I've done things that maybe, just maybe, you have thought of doing.
Maybe, just maybe, you're not as innocent as you'd like to think.
Or maybe I'm not so guilty ...
WARNING: This book involves CHEATING. The word AFFAIR is in the title. The main character has an AFFAIR. In the synopsis (directly above), she states that she intentionally has an AFFAIR. If you don't like CHEATING, then you have been VERY WELL warned. Also, this book is primarily written in the third-person narrative.

~My Review~

My Time in the Affair by Stylo Fantome is one woman’s journey to finding herself and learning to live with the choices she’s made in her life. I thought I wasn’t going to like this story. I just knew it was going to hate the main characters. However, Fantome SURPRISED me. I was in all of her telling of Mischa story. I understood her WHY but not her Method. I really enjoyed this story and finished it in a day. This story has action, love, deceit, acceptance, and self-discover.
All of the Characters are likeable and caring. Tal the male lead is HOT, like really HOT!! He seems shut off at times but there’s reason behind his dark and mysteries ways. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that he is great in bed ;). Also, he is caring, understanding, and just a sweetie pie.
Mischa at the beginning of the story comes off as self-loathing and uncaring of her husband feeling. However, we are able to see she cares more about her husband then we first suspect.  She is at times like an open book for all to read and judge. However, at other times she holds off and this are the times you want her to scream and yell. Just tell them how you really feel. I felt her pain in those moments.
This story by far is much different from Fantome's Kane series but it is hot, captivating, and an eye opening read. I really liked this book and would recommend to others. As long as cheating isn’t a trigger for you.

Stylo Fantome Crazy woman living in an undisclosed location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since ..., forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball - I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I'm clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.
I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don't trust anyone who doesn't drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there's your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair - both a curse and a blessing - and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can't understand me.
Yeah. I think that about sums me up.
