A Stunning Accusation

Adelaide Scott is a 25-year-old relationship advice columnist for Stunning! Magazine. Her new boyfriend, Jordan Johnson, is a renowned photographer for Sports Unlimited. Their relationship seems perfect, until his ex-girlfriend confronts them at a bar – and accuses Jordan of raping her, turning their world upside down.

It doesn’t help that her best friend and editor, Kiersten Sharp, sees rape as a black-and-white issue, with no shades of doubt. Addie is about to discover that the truth – in all its forms – is complicated, and not at all what she expects.

      
Love, in my experience, was about seeing a vision of a person: imagining the fullness of what they could be, and only together could the fullness of that vision be achieved.

At the same time, a big part of attraction had to do with mystery. No one could be known completely, and what made love such a thrilling adventure was the quest of getting to the bottom of a person, knowing the more you uncovered, the more you still had yet to find. And Jordan was an expert at being unknowable. Everything he did – every joke he told, every expression he made, even every move during sex – was calculated. He was a man who knew he had a certain image in public, so parts of him must remain untouchable to maintain it – even with me (or, you could argue, since my columns were such a hit, especially with me).

A huge part of being in love was respecting that mystery – resisting the temptation to reinvent a person as you saw fit.

Sarahbeth Caplin is the author of three novels and a memoir, Confessions of a Prodigal Daughter, which ranked #51 in Amazon’s top 100 books on personal growth in May 2015. She lives in Colorado with her husband and kittens, and is working on an MFA in Creative Writing at Colorado State.
