    Description

    An all-new flirty, lighthearted, stand-alone romance by New York Times best-selling 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 a hotter-than-hell cardiothoracic surgeon in his early 30s 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 40 would be realizing the man you thought was a rebound is actually your happily ever after?

    Predictable

    I was unimpressed with this book, and disappointed that Zachary Webber didn't narrate more chapters. I'm really tired of the 'insecure woman who needs to be loved to find her strength' trope. To me, this was just a bit tedious and way too repetitive.

    Not my favorite

    The story was cute and the concept was good but the character of the F was off. She was written as a whining, insecure woman. I get she has baggage but all the conclusions he kept to mostly had to do with being insecure. I love Emma Wilder but I hate it that she had to play this character because she already has a breathy voice and to add all the whining and insecurities made it that more amplified and I almost couldn’t finish the damn book. I have to say this is a fail for me. The high marks are for Slade and Zachary Webber.

    Entertaining

    From start to finish, K. Bromberg wove a story that drew me in and had me riveted from the first to the last chapter and I was frustrated when real life got in the way of my reading. This is Ms.Bromberg writing at her best with a strong, emotional storyline and characters that you cannot help but fall for and whose story you quickly become invested in.
    Blakely Foxx and Slade Henderson were characters that were easy to relate to and I loved the, both separately and especially once they got together. Having recently divorced, Blakely is struggling,; her ex is already involved with another woman, half her age, her boss is being a jerk and she is just about to celebrate her 40th birthday.
    She cannot understand how a hot, and successful surgeon could possibly be interested in her. I loved how supportive Slade was and how caring and protective he is of Blakely. He was totally swoon worthy and I fell hard and fast for him as he helped Blakely get her confidence back.
    This book was exactly what I've come to expect from K. Bromberg; it was well written, it will make you laugh, it will make you swoon and I loved it.
    Emma Wilder and Zachary Webber did an outstanding job with the narration and really brought the story to life for me.

    Very sweet and cute

    I was a little “boiling bunny crazy” over this one! Zachary Webber is my all time favorite narrator and he was excellent, as always. The story was a tad predictable but still very much enjoyable! Definitely worth a credit!

    Immature FMC

    As a woman who just turned 40 and is teetering on the edge of divorce, I was really put off by the female MC in this book. I understand insecurities, we all have them, but the level of whining and wallowing in this book was reflective of something you’d see in a YA novel, not something about a woman who has had almost 40 years of life experience. I had a horrible boss in my 30’s and struggled to manage it, but I was at the BOTTOM level, not a senior level employee who was offered a VP position and turned it down. It is completely unrealistic that this character would be so mousy with someone who is literally second fiddle. Also, why does she never talk to senior management about the issues she’s having? The other employees talk about the fact that they’ve gone to management. By the time you’re at that level, you know how to handle difficult people like that and if you don’t, you don’t deserve to be there.

    As for the relationship, she is an adult. Be an adult and HAVE A CONVERSATION! Jumping to conclusions and making assumptions is for teenagers who don’t know how to communicate yet. I get if she needs time to figure herself out before jumping into a relationship, totally valid (and I’m not a huge fan of a woman needing a man to love and be confident in herself) but if that’s the case, just TELL HIM. Don’t ignore his calls or attempts to explain like a child. I would have like to see some character development so she would have at least had the confidence to talk to him what she felt/though/wanted. When the guy is more mature than the woman it’s hard to believe or relate to.

    Anyway, rant done. Overall, I would not recommend going into this book if you are looking for, and excited to see a strong, confident, “older” protagonist. If you want that, read KF Breene’s Magical Midlife Madness series. Here, you will just get more of the same stuff that you find in YA/NA novels except that the FMC is all angsty about the age difference as well as the same old “does he like me, no he can’t possibly, so I’ll convince myself he doesn’t, and ghost him even though I’m desperately in love with him,” BS. I mean is there any woman who actually does that?

    This Is What Divorce Feels Like

    There are a couple of other reviews stating they didn’t like the female character because she was always complaining and self-deprecating.

    I found this book refreshing. When you go through a divorce, women often don’t feel attractive or “good enough.” Been there, done that and I could really empathize with Blakely. I also loved that Slade understood that and really helped her find herself again.

    It doesn’t hurt that they had an immediate connection with each other. I really enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend to anyone. There are plenty of laugh out loud moments mixed in with steamy attraction.

    38 year old new divorcee meets 32 year old doctor

    Fast moving, sweet, sexy story about Blakey, an intelligent but insecure woman recovering from an emotionally abusive ex-husband and dealing with a envious bullying boss. She meets Slade, a sweet younger doctor in a bar and there is an immediate attraction but wariness mostly with her. A feel good romance with some minimal angst. Blakely is very relatable if occasionally repetitive and Slade is almost too good to be true. The ending was quick- an additional epilogue would have been great maybe with some of the happy ending. Narration is good. Worth a credit if you like romance.

    Blakely and Slade

    I really liked this story about Blakely having a midlife crisis after her husband divorces her and he turns around and gets engaged to a younger version of her. Slade sees her at the bar and they end up talking about what she feels has gone wrong with her life. He steps away to take a phone call and she gets cold feet about being attracted to a younger man. He doesn't get her contact information and feels like he's missing out on a good thing with her. Fate brings them together and takes them on a journey of self-discovery and growth for both of them. I thought Emma Wilder and Zachary Webber were perfect as the narrators. I can't wait for K. Bromberg's next book. She always writes such wonderful books.

    Loving K Bromberg - great story!

    My second Kristy Bromberg, and I’m a big fan! Loved it!!

    This is an age-gap story, with an older gal, younger guy. The way it should be!! She’s 39, he’s 31. He’s a doctor and always super busy, never dating. She never goes out, recently divorced, and just happened to go out one night to show friends she still can. She’s alone sitting at the bar and he approaches her. They chat. He goes to the loo. A girl comes up to her and says - can you give your son my card? I’m too nervous to do it myself! (Lol! OUCH!) She’s so turned off after feeling pretty darn good from the flirting, that she leaves the card and flees, never to see him again. He’s disappointed she isn't there when he gets back!

    He calls the card, but it’s a different name, realizes she wasn’t interested. Disappointed again. Walking down the street a few days later, he spots her, looking uncomfortable talking to a man and a woman half her age but a carbon copy... must be the ex and new wife she’d mentioned? He runs up and saves her, playing the new beau. The fake relationship begins!

    They both realize they can make this work to their advantage. They each have upcoming events they need a hand with, where they need a partner to look good. They can use each other to get through. Can they do it without getting caught, and without forming an attachment? Sounds reasonable!

    Great story and two of my fave tropes in one book! Extremely well written. Looking forward to reading many more K. Bromberg books in the near future.

    I real love Zachary's voice so sexy

    who doesn't want to fall in love again even if a divorce leaves you feeling down . Younger man is all good as long as he's mature Slade is all that and a doctor . Blake is older but wiser but she needs to learn to love herself . I wasn't a fan of there names and they did take there sweet time getting to the know of how they felt . To worried how the other might feel to lay there love out there.
