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?
What happens when a doctor flirts with a divorcée in a bar? This book right here! Poor Blakely is trying to work her way into the promotion she deserves while her ex is off with some young thing and her new young boss (picture a sort of Devil Wears Prada situation, but she is basically a mean sorority girl) is sabotaging her at every step. Hence why she ends up in a bar where the hot younger guy next to starts flirting with her. What does she end up doing? Inviting him to be her pretend boyfriend on a work retreat, of course! This book totally made me think of What Happens in Vegas in that aspect. This story was flirty and fun and Slade seriously knows how to charm the pants off anyone. I also noticed that in most age gaps where the woman is older that she’s full of insecurity, yet in reverse the man always comes off all cocky. This is totally one of those situations and I want to see a situation where this isn’t the case because poor Blakely lets her self-doubt get to her a lot. You’ll enjoy this romance if you love:
-age gaps/fake relationships
-bar meet cutes
-work retreats featuring drunken shenanigans, hot hookups and more
-hot doctors who know how to have a good time
