The Breakup Artist was an utter delight to read! The quirky and unique story line, partnered with the comedic dynamic between the characters, was super enjoyable.

Katie and Wes have unresolved history. She was blindsided by Wes when he up and ghosted her. So rude, right? But without this breakup, Katie wouldn’t have created a successful blog geared towards breakups, secure a book deal, or land a celebrity couple as clients who could potentially skyrocket her career. But when Wes enters the picture again, working with the couple as a lawyer from the movie studio, things go from elation to awkward. And old feelings of heartbreak and doubt are brought right back to the surface.

Katie was awesome! I loved the fact that not only did she grow into a stronger, more self-assured woman, she took a painful life experience and turned it into a positive. But the icing on the cake was the fact she wasn’t perfect. She still had her fair share of flaws — her self-doubt and insecurities. But those qualities are so real and spot on with a lot of women who’ve experienced heartbreak, it makes the character very relatable.

Wes on the other hand…well, I didn’t love him like I usually do with male leads. Yes, he had changed. Yes, he had matured and apologized for his immature and insensitive actions. But there was just something about him at first that just rubbed me the wrong way. I can’t quite pinpoint it. Maybe it was the fact that he had to do very little to gain back Katie’s trust. So I guess that should really be a strike against her. But if it was up to me, he would’ve been groveling until one is blue in the face. But nevertheless, his charm and personality finally won me over along with how much he regretted letting Katie go in the first place.

The Breakup Artist was a sweet, second chance romance with low angst and minimal drama. Although it’s part of the Cupids series, it’s a complete standalone and a fun and entertaining summer read!

4 Stars!

Synopsis:
Love romantic comedies? Enjoy the sizzling new standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author, Lila Monroe!

I’m an expert in break-ups. From the slow fade, to extreme ghosting, to, ‘but you never said I couldn’t send pics of my junk to your step-sister on Instagram’ – I’ve seen it all… and built a mini-empire along the way. My blog, the Break-Up Artist, uses my past heartache to help people move on – and avoid weeping on the floor at 3am consuming their body weight in spray cheese and Oreos. Ahem.

Now, I have a new job that could mean the big-time: helping a famous Hollywood it-couple navigate their tricky break-up. Except not everyone wants them Splitsville. The movie studio needs to keep them together to promote their big movie, and they’ve sent someone to make sure I fail in my first VIP gig.

Wes Baxter. Also known as my ex.
Also ALSO known as, the guy who broke my heart so thoroughly, I had to turn myself into a self-help guru just to get over him.

I’m determined to follow my own advice (no drooling over Wes’s perfect abs, or remembering how he rocked my world) but being trapped together at a luxe country retreat isn’t helping things… And neither is Wes’s early-morning naked swim habit. Soon, love is in the air, the sparks between us are hotter than ever, and I’m seriously questioning my ‘no backsies’ policy.

Wes swears he’s changed. He wants to try again, and he’s got an annoyingly sexy way of convincing me. But can second chances really work? Or has the Break-Up Artist finally met her match?
