Nineteen-year-old Phoenix Cartwright meets Katharine I. Malone for the first time when Katharine accidentally stumbles into her office and introduces herself as a coworker. Phoenix feels a bit curious about the weird encounter, but she sweeps it aside shortly after. Her world comes crashing down when she learns that her parents are getting a divorce and her dad is seeing someone. She resolves to do all she can to bring them back together with the help of her gay best friend, Sidney. What role does Katharine play in this shameful love scramble, and is Phoenix really ready to face the truth about her parents? Phoenix Cartwright writes about how forbidden and passionate love is intertwined with heavy costs and dirty secrets.

I was extremely eager to complete the story with each mouth-watering secret revealed. And now that I'm done, I want more! When it comes to gripping suspense and rapt engagement, the story delivers aptly, and it doesn't disappoint with the romantic and graphically erotic scenes either. In addition to the erotic scenes, potential readers should expect some curse words and a short violent scene. Some major themes explored in Kim are love, infidelity, murder, slander, and revenge. For the first fictional work by Phoenix Cartwright, I was impressed by the immersing and meticulous narrative. I was skeptical at first about the regular switches between the past and the present because similar time switches can be tricky, but it's handled gracefully and is easy to grasp and follow. In conclusion, Kim is a perfect recommendation for readers seeking a romantic thriller and a scandalous story.
