1988 reprint and a good story. A bit old-fashioned but about a woman afraid of marriage after having one that was a disaster. Couple goes on a trip to take their friendship 'to the next level'..lots of innuendos, he wins a bracelet gambling and then trouble starts. Nothing too dramatic except near the end which is typical of these stories. Overall I enjoyed this story.
