A very captivating read. The teasing along with the anticipation of something more took me back to my teen-age years. Summer Daniels had me loathing her "ex" without ever really getting to know him; a staple of fine short story-telling.

If you're marriage is in the ditch, perhaps sexual exploration is just what the doctor ordered. It's all up to the individual.
