In the secret recesses of our hearts, how many ten-year-married folks could honestly say we have never felt tempted for just one night.. or one afternoon fling? Not many of us, this reader suspects.
In this short story, it's clear that this self-absorbed Husband has lost interest in Wife, indeed, in their marriage. When she plans a surprise overnight stay in a hotel to celebrate their tenth wedding anniversary, he can't be bothered to make it home from work... at all. To say, "He doesn't know what he's missing," is quite an understatement, as she drifts under the spell of a charming, sexy stranger she encounters in the hotel bar.
The story's title hides no secrets, so the interest here is in how it all plays out, and whether the gorgeous neglected Cate will be consumed with guilt for her very deliberate decision to engage in this one illicit sexual adventure.
As usual, Ava Sterling has written an absorbing tale.
