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?
“Let it go. Take the ride. Put your toes in the sand. Howl at the moon. Do whatever it is you want to do so long as it’s in pursuit of finding you again.”
ARC REVIEW ➞
Where can I find myself a Slade?!? Seriously, he is supportive, selfless and caring and swoony. The perfect book boyfriend! Flirting with 40 is a fun age gap romance about finding yourself and gaining confidence back in who you are as a person.
Blakely is recently divorced, she has lost herself, she is dealing with a coworker who is a complete jerk. She has had a long day, she is just trying to wind down at a bar when a man sits next to her and doesn’t take the hint that she doesn’t want the company. Slade is going through a rough patch with his career as a surgeon and has a little extra free time. From the moment Blakely and Slade meet at the bar there is a connection between them, however, Blakely is afraid of their age difference and she lacks some confidence in herself. Slade is confident, charming, sweet and supportive.
I loved the banter between Blakely and Slade. I loved the chemistry between them. There is just so much to love about these two. There is just so much to love about the two of them. Their relationship was effortless, it was fun and there were so many times throughout the story you can just see how perfect they are for each other.
Flirting with 40 is a fun MUST READ that will have you swooning from the very first page to the very last.
