An all new flirty, lighthearted, standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author K. Bromberg guaranteed to make you swoon.
Blakely Foxx is having one of those years.
Her divorce may have been finalized a few months ago, but her ex is already engaged to someone half her age. Her younger boss is determined to sabotage her chance at getting the promotion she rightly deserves. And to make matters worse, she’s closing in on the big 4-0. There isn’t enough wine or ice cream in the world to convince her things will turn around.
When Blakely meets Slade Henderson, she’s left wondering why an early-thirties, hotter than hell, cardiothoracic surgeon would take an interest in her.
She’s been warned that he’ll break her heart, but she’s willing to take the chance. Not only is he helping her get that promotion, but in the process, he’s encouraging her to find the parts of herself she’s lost over the past few years.
Slade shows her that good guys really do exist, but who knew the hardest part about turning forty would be realizing the man you thought was a rebound, is actually your happily ever after?
Ugh, you really can’t go wrong with a K. Bromberg book, just about every book I’ve read by her I’ve loved. And you can definitely add Flirting With 40 to the list books that you’ll absolutely adore.
There were so many elements to love about this one, an age gap, opposites attract and strangers to friends to lovers. And Blakely is getting her second chance at love with a man who is constantly pushing her up and being the best person to have on her side … unlike her ex-husband.
Character development is one of my favorite things to see in a book and Blakely goes through quite the change in the best way possible. She never really knew how toxic a relationship she was in until she met Slade. He was constantly showing her how much of a beautiful and amazing person she was. And she really started coming into herself but keeping the feistiness that she carries so well.
Sladeeeeeee, that man, LOVEEEE him so much. He won me over so quickly and he’s just so damn smooth about everything.
One thing that kept me from rating it a 5 was the constant conflict with her boss, Heather. I felt like it played a bigger role than it should have and kind overpowered things a bit for me. This definitely might be a small thing for many though, so don’t mind me.
Highly recommend this book, a light read, low drama and alllllllll the heat!
