4.5 Stars
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?

Blakely and Slade.
She's 39 years old. Has been divorced from her husband for seven months now. He's about to get married to a girl almost half their age. Plus Blakely's boss Heather is a major ... b-word person, who thinks Blakely's too old for the trendy job.
Slade is 31. A heart surgeon on a not exactly voluntary sabbatical.
Blakely and Slade meet at a bar.
And suddenly he's kinda her pretend-or-not-pretend boyfriend for the company's bonding retreat.



Adorable! And funny.
I really enjoyed reading this.
Such a sweet and fun romance.

A kind of finding-yourself-again self help book. LOL! 
For most of the story we're at the company retreat at a cabin lake resort place.
So we have lots of fun adventurey moments. And lots of angry-at-the-boss moments.
I really loved reading this.
Slade is so adorable and somehow the grown-up in this whole story.
It's a bit as if he's a guardian angel here to help Blakely find herself again ... and then he'll disappear after he's done his job. But of course we want him to stay and get that happily ever after!

I wouldn't mind getting a spin-off for Blake's bestie! She's a hilarious single mom!

Flirting with 40 was such a sweet & adorable & funny age-gappy adventure love story. READ IT!
Also - Slade is mine - so you need to get your own book!

ARC received for an honest review

As a woman who has more than flirted with 40 - heck, I have flirted and waved as I rode right on past 40 - I enjoyed Blakely's tale.
From flirtation to serendipitous meeting, Blakely and Slade are just too cute.  I couldn't help but smile as I was reading.
This was like a guide to finding yourself again.  From work issues to moving on after divorce, Blakely is dealing with it all.  
And Slade is just the guy to help her through it all, even when he is dealing with work complications of his own.
It is a good thing Slade is a cardiac surgeon, because he had my heart beating out of my chest.  Palpitations I tell you! 
There are some great secondary characters, and I feel that I need to get the story of Blakely's bestie.  
And I need to find a Slade of my own.
I look forward to more stories like this from Ms Bromberg.

Play Hard Series Book #1

New York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines and damaged heroes who we love to hate and hate to love.
She’s a mixture of most of her female characters: sassy, intelligent, stubborn, reserved, outgoing, driven, emotional, strong, and wears her heart on her sleeve. All of which she displays daily with her husband and three children where they live in Southern California.
On a whim, K. Bromberg decided to try her hand at this writing thing. Since then she has written The Driven Series (Driven, Fueled, Crashed, Raced, Aced), the standalone Driven Novels (Slow Burn, Sweet Ache, Hard Beat, and Down Shift (Releasing 10/4/16)), and a short story titled UnRaveled. She is currently finishing up Sweet Cheeks a standalone novel out at the end of 2016.
Her plans for 2017 include a sports romance duet (The Player (#1) and The Catch (#2)) and the Everyday Heroes series (Cuffed (#1), Combust (#2), and Cockpit (#3). She also published a novella for the 1,001 Dark Night series.
She loves to hear from her readers so make sure you check her out on social media.
