I'll admit I didn't see a whole lot to this story beyond the surfeit of sex. That was until the ending...the cliffhanger seduced me for reasons I can't explain. The female lead, Sophie, satirizes the victimization of adultery. She suspects her husband of gallivanting for months. Instead of confronting him, she ignores it. Then she meets Lucien and signs up for her own unfaithful week of hanky-panky. The fun crashes to a halt when she comes face-to-face with the evidence of her husband's affair. Armed with bitter betrayal, she unfairly rejects Lucien and pits herself against both men. Even though I couldn't summon sympathy for her hypocritical situation, I can't ignore the sappy little thrill I got at the end. The characters are destined to make important choices in the sequel, which might just launch the punch this story needs.
