Teaser Tuesday: Flirting With Forty by Jane Porter

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

1. Grab your current read.
2. Let the book fall open to a random page.
3. Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.

4. You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
5. Please avoid spoilers!

My 2 “Teaser” Sentences for today:

Lacing up my running shoes, I do everything I can not to think or feel, although I can't help realizing this is quite a unique situation for me. It's been so long since I had a proper one-night stand, I'm not sure if I should be shocked by my behavior or proud.
~ p.126, “Flirting With Forty” by Jane Porter



Come back tomorrow and enter my giveaway! I will be giving away all four of Jane's books published by 5 Spot to 1 lucky winner, and 2 others will receive Flirting With Forty!!
I can't wait - I LOVE this book, and it has been made into a movie that will be shown on Lifetime December 6th.

From Hachette Book Group:
He got the second home and the Porsche. She got the kids and a broken heart. Now Jackie, post-divorce and heading toward the big four-oh, is on vacation in sunny Hawaii and staring down her upcoming birthday-alone. But not for long. She's soon falling for Kai, her gorgeous, much younger surf instructor, and the wild passionate fling they have becomes the biggest surprise of Jackie's life.
Back home in Seattle, Jackie has to struggle with single parenthood...and memories of Kai. He hasn't forgotten her. Yet thousands of miles of ocean-not to mention an age difference that feels even wider-separate them. And, of course, her friends disapprove. When a choice must be made, can she, will she risk everything for her chance at happiness?

I didn't know there was a proper way to have a one-night stand!?

The book sounds a lot like How Stella Got Her Groove Back.

Nice teaser - it embodies the book title i think. And the chick-lit genre. :-)
