In Ken Saik's most recent book, Temptation, he combines his love for Mediterranean cruises with some memorable experiences from three decades of high school teaching. When not serving as part-time butler to his wife's cat, in this story he speculates on a particular student's position vigorously upheld in an overheard hallway conversation. How might her value of faithfulness play out in the future if it were really tested?
Ashley Norris is a recently divorced young lady. Through an odd set of circumstances she finds herself without her girlfriends from the bank on a dearly dreamed of, discounted Mediterranean cruise. The timing of her holiday also catches her accountant boyfriend, Adam Aski, when he’s anchored to the deadline demands of tax returns. A young, attractive athletic soccer team manager, Randy Watson, who happens to live in a city near Ashley, enriches several of her excursion adventures. Ashley’s only defense from Randy’s persistent amorous attention is a poem created by Adam and printed as a bookmarker. The poem, she feels, captures her feelings about relationships perfectly. The question is, could this paper shield protect Ashley from Randy’s, at times, welcomed gentle strategic advances?
