Available Now. Flirting with 40 by K. Bromberg


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?

Excerpt



“The way I look at it, you owe me one.” His voice is just loud enough for me to hear over the din of the restaurant.

“I owe it to you?” I sputter.

Mm-hm.” He nods resolutely as he puts more space between us, and my lungs find a way to breathe. “You ran out the other night without giving me a chance. I could be the best thing that ever happened to you—platonic or otherwise—and you might have missed that opportunity if we hadn’t run into each other on the street this afternoon.”

Or otherwise?

He’s talking nonsense but is doing it so convincingly that I try to talk myself out of what he’s successfully talking me in to. “I don’t—”

“Does my age unnerve you?” he asks.

“Your age doesn’t matter.”

“Exactly.” He smirks. “So, why are you making it matter?”

I walked right into that one.

“We’re at different phases of our lives. You’re in your residency. I’m a divorcée with baggage—”

“Everyone has baggage. It just looks different from person to person.” He leans back in his chair. “What are you afraid of? Getting to know someone new? Taking a chance? Stepping outside of the box for once? Finding yourself again?”

His words root deep into me and take hold. “I appreciate you trying... but we’ll never pull it off.”

“Yes, we could.”

“No one would ever believe it.”

“Quit letting them—whoever they are—put you in a mold, Blakely. Make your own damn mold. You might surprise yourself in the process.” His dimples deepen, and his eyes are as unwavering as his resolve.

“How do I know you aren’t some Ted Bundy in waiting?”

His laugh is throaty and rich and draws the stares of those around us. “I’m in the business of saving lives, not taking them.” He takes a sip of his beer. “Next excuse?”

“I’m...” I’m at a loss, and a small thrill of adrenaline shoots through me. This isn’t something I’d ever do, and yet, the idea of it is invigorating, almost freeing. I chew the inside of my cheek as I contemplate agreeing to Slade’s crazy scheme.

“What do you say?”

Say yes.

“It isn’t a crime for a younger man to think an older woman is attractive.”

I bite my bottom lip as the smile creeps around it.

He is drop-dead handsome.

“We go as friends. I help you out. No strings attached.”

The answer is yes.

“When’s the last time you threw caution to the wind? When’s the last time you did something unexpected no matter how small?” he asks.

It’s always yes.

“I can’t believe I’m saying this,” I mutter.

“Saying what?”

“Fine. Yes. Okay.”

Ruthie☆☆☆☆☆
This is a hugely enjoyable and fun read. The leads are really appealing and intelligent, with relatively normal lives, and both just needed a reminder of the good things in life – luckily, K. Bromberg caused them to meet, and the rest... well it's all in this book!

Blakely is such a well-penned character, and one that I definitely would like as a friend. She is competent, caring, and owns her errors and flaws, possibly even too much. Thrown into a spin by her marriage ending, and acknowledging that her pretentious husband's expectations of her were holding her back, she is deeply hurt to find that her replacement is so truly vacuous. But step in Slade, and give some more reality and remind her of her strengths.

Slade's got some completely different issues going on, but as it happens, it means that he can give Blake the attention he wants and she deserves. And he does so with style and fun. And if she is a little older than him, he is not in any way bothered... I love his commitment to persuading her of this.

I pretty much read this in one sitting, just having to stop for sleep. Absolutely loved it, so sexy, so sweet, so fun, and possibly most importantly, it felt so real. Another winner from the very talented K. Bromberg, thank you!

Blakely is content with her life; after her divorce a few months ago, she doesn't think she needs to make waves or make any new changes to her life. But when she meets a younger man who is more than interested in her, she begins to think she might enjoy a little flirting.

Slade is on leave from his job. He was trying to protect a patient, and others thought he went too far. When he meets Blakely, he wants to get to know her better. She is so different from the girls his age and he likes that.

As they spend more time together, they find that they are compatible in more ways than one. They seem to need each other to make the other shine. Blakely needs Slade to show her the woman he sees in her, and that she can be the woman that he sees.

This is a fun, flirty, and sexy story with a happily ever after for a woman who found her true love turning 40. I love K. Bromberg, she has a way of telling a story that will capture your heart, sometimes the story will make you bleed and, in the end, you will be whole again. Grab this one and enjoy the ride with Blakely and Slade.
