Josh passes out drunk at a big after-party for his and Kimmy’s high school reunion. He isn’t sure if it’s a dream or if it really happened, but at some point during the night he wakes to the class bully entering his tent and claiming to have had sex with Kimmy - and that Josh (while screaming drunk, apparently) had asked him to. The bully, Devlin, displays his massive organ and notes Kimmy’s screaming orgasms on it.
When he finally wakes up, it’s to Kimmy and the bully, Devlin, fighting. Her friends are vague about what’s going on. Kimmy doesn’t want to talk about it and they leave. But a cloud hangs over him and Kimmy the next couple of days. The worry makes him impotent.
Devlin - who is also rich, handsome and well dressed besides being a bully and a jerk - suddenly texts Josh to taunt him - that he paid Kimmy a visit while Josh was at work.
It’s nauseating watching it go down. I don’t really understand why Kimmy yields to Devlin. For whatever reasons - and it’s suggested she had options - she chose Josh in life, and was attracted to him. So it’s unclear why she caves now to some hunk. He’s so obnoxious. If she wants a bigger dick than her husband’s, there would be a lot less toxic ways of getting it.
Morrison, when she finally gives us Kimmy’s POV, is careful to weave things together - why she lets Devlin in, how she tries to keep a distance, how he persists, how she waves, and most importantly, how he dangles his biggest temptation - a boost to her stalled career - to keep her in his orbit.
Kimmy is a work-from-home basket weaver, with a law degree. Josh works in Market Research. The two are a young twenty-something couple starting to think about the long-term, they have been shooting around the idea of having a child but with no success. Kimmy decided she would focus on basket weaving as a hobby, but she knows that she should really try to get a bigger job.
At a 10-year reunion, a guy like Devlin Stone will stand out. He's a success in a way that few people in these things can top, and he isn't one to miss an opportunity to let everyone know about it. For the most part , people can't stand it, but for others ... I mean, it is a nice car ...
Kimmy is absolutely, unequivocally in the first category of people who can't stand Devlin, he was (and still is) a jerk to everyone, including her own husband. People that Devlin messed around with back then even tormented young Kimmy. But at the reunion, her friends can't help talking about his success, and something in Kimmy keeps her planted in place even as she boils over with disdain for Devlin's character in an argument. Now Kimmy is stuck having to try and put an end to this situation, while also maintaining her family and it's future. One lapse in Kimmy's judgment shouldn't follow her past this party right? Except Devlin has a business proposition ...
... And Josh might have had a few too many drinks that night. Apparently he has signed a verbal agreement with Devlin he doesn't recall making, and there is an effort underway to make sure that it is adhered to.
Kimmy is fantastic. I love a story that can make me doubt my own understanding about a situation even when I know what I'm understanding is correct. Josh should be more than warranted in understanding what exactly happened at the reunion, but Kimmy is incredible at misdirection. As readers we even know something was up, but even then she can insert doubt. Did what happen, even happen? Yes it did, but maybe not ...
I am a massive fan of this story and this writer, I don't know if there will ever be a more gifted writer of mystery within this genre. It's incredibly fun, even when it's excruciatingly mind consuming. I find the scenario that launches this whole story to be original and entertaining as we see both Kimmy and Josh deal with the events after the reunion. I am a supporter of this author through her Patreon page and I strongly encourage anyone interested in this story to consider checking it out.
Note: If you’re not into the cheating hot-wife genera then this win not be your cup of tea! You’ve been warned!!!
Josh is awakened from a drunken stupor by the apparition of his High School nemeses Devlin Stone. Stone claims to have done the deed with Kimmy, Josh’s wife and HS sweetheart per Josh’s fantasy. Stone leaves Josh protesting that he made no such request. Josh pass out to only awaken midday. He locates Kimmy and witnesses some kind of verbal altercation between Kimmy and Stone. Kimmy and Josh pack up and leave the reunion hand head home. Kimmy will not go into any details as to what the fight was about only it was politics! Nothing is resolved in this book. Only more questions and mistrust ensue. Stone via texts continue s to taunt Josh and get into both of their heads. Josh’s trust level of Kimmy will be going on a wild ride over the next couple of books.

Josh return for a 10 year High School reunion.
We start with Josh in a tent waking from a drunken stupor, unsure if he has had a bad dream or if he really was visited in the early hours by Devlin, who bullied him, back then.
In this vision, Devlin tells him that he had done what Josh had apparently asked; get with his gorgeous Taiwanese wife.
All Josh knows is that she is missing from beside him and when he does find her; there really is an atmosphere between her, Devlin and her girl-friends.
Josh is unable to deal with the situation in his hung-over state and finds that after only two days Devlin is once again terrorising him mentally.
This first part begins to unravel what actually happened and suggests that perhaps there is some history that Josh is not aware of.
