Theirs was a storybook romance - popular athlete Rodney Carr and pretty, talented, hard-to-pin-down Leah Monzano were pegged as a sure thing from the moment they appeared together at prom. After years of marriage, the world still sees them as a fairytale couple. But not everything is always happy ever after.
As Leah tries to square her ambitions and her own passions, she realizes her husband might have very different ideas about what love should be given and what love should be deserved. Just as she discovers this, she reconnects with Jared Bruce, a compassionate and brilliant photographer who's come a long way from his status as the "black nerd" in school. Loyal, kind, and tortured by the horrors he's seen as a wartime photographer, Jared can't quite conceal how long he's been carrying a torch for Leah, but would never make Leah even think of compromising her marriage.
A lot of things change, though, because of Rodney. When he crosses a line and shows zero remorse, Leah has some decisions to make. She's not in a position for too many people to believe her, but the situation is only getting worse. She'll be down to just a few friends, her wits, and a whole bunch of hard choices.
Should she put everything else on hold to focus on saving the marriage, putting everything into her body and their sex life to bring the spark back?
Should she box away the feeling she's discovered for the thoughtful, artistic man from her past who wants nothing more than to protect her?
Should she stop trying to have it perfect and realize that in all relationships you might just have to settle?
There's another option:
Should she enact the plan she's kept in reserve, the last-ditch escape plan that will ensure she can be free forever?
Love. Second chances. Revenge. Redemption. Outfoxed is a re-telling of a forgotten Grimm tale ("The Gossip Wolf and the Fox") for the modern age - with the heat and the intensity turned all the way up.

Totally not what I expected (in a good way!)
When I first started this listen, I found myself getting upset because I couldn't take how weak Leah, the main female character, was. Boy, did I get outfoxed.
I won't give any more of the story away but if you can resist snatching your earbuds out or throwing your phone against the wall, it will be worth it.
There's a bit more sex in this book than I usually prefer but it wasn't gratuitous; it was necessary for the story. Again, totally worth it.
The narrator did a great job keeping the listen interesting. Actually, she was probably too good. Some of the POV from the husband was icky but the narrator made him incredibly believable.
I wasn't expecting this story. I love it when that happens.
