Tara is a successful writer. Her book The Perfect Marriage in 30 Days is a bestseller. Her publisher wants her to go on a book tour to promote the book even further. There's only one small problem, after Tara's husband read his wife's inner thoughts he left her and he took all of their money with him. Tara has no choice and has to do the tour to make sure she won't go bankrupt. Will she be able to pull it off, while she's hiding such a big secret from her audience? Publicist Jake isn't happy with his new assignment. He wasn't supposed to work on Tara's tour and doesn't think much of her. However, when he meets her he changes his opinion. Tara isn't the spoiled woman he expected her to be and this intrigues him. There's plenty of attraction between them, but Tara's husband has just left her and there's a ten-year age gap. Will Tara's husband be back eventually or is Tara free to do what she wants? Will Jake and Tara have a chance together? Flirting with Forever is a wonderful romantic story. I loved Tara. She's smart, resourceful and talented. I could easily imagine why her audience loves her so much, which made reading about her book extra interesting for me. I loved the way Kim Boykin describes her profession and it was fun to find out more about Tara's book tour. Tara and Jake have a lot in common, but their circumstances aren't ideal. I was curious to find out if they'd be able to give in to their feelings and kept hoping they'd get their happily ever after. Kim Boykin has a great descriptive writing style that makes her stories come to life incredibly well. I love the way she writes about feelings and could easily picture Tara's dilemma. It's an interesting idea for a story and I liked the execution a lot. I'm a big fan of books about authors and their hopes and dreams and Flirting with Forever is a fabulous one. It's an entertaining romantic story filled with fascinating twists and turns. I enjoyed reading this charming book very much.
