THE BREAKUP DOCTOR has it all, humor, romance, and wonderful
up advice! Here you will meet Brook Lyn; she is as licensed
counselor. Brook goes to work one day, and they are literally
her practice because it has been condemned. Now what is she
do? She calls her lifelong friend. Sasha who has always been
Brook. As Brook has always been there for Sasha. Sasha has
luck with her relationships and Brook is always there to help
Sasha tells Brook that she needs to start helping others with
ups. Brook starts writing a column for the paper that Sasha
works for and
becomes The Breakup Doctor. She is very successful with
columns. Her life is going well, that is until her boyfriend
breaks up with
her and she tries to handle the breakup like a professional.
It's a shame
she doesn't take her own advice! You will be laughing out loud
at some of
the things she does!
THE BREAKUP DOCTOR had me totally, emotionally invested from
page. I could completely relate to Brook, and I believe that
anyone who has
every experienced a break up will relate to her story. I sure
author Phoebe Fox writes another book with the same characters.
this will be a wonderful start to an awesome series? Maybe the
could be more about Sasha? I love Brook and it was wonderful
her character learn and grow. I was expecting a lighthearted

Phoebe Fox's debut THE BREAKUP DOCTOR is delightful. It was the

totally love but variety is the spice of life right?)The story
is sharp, snarky,
funny, and fast-paced. Brook's narration is a great balance of
self-deprecation, with a healthy dose of snark to make the
reader laugh out
loud! I was pleasantly surprised by the depth of the story as
solidly in the category of "chick lit," to be sure, but I
thought the relationship
advice given by Brook is actually very informative.
A broken leg requires an orthopedist. A broken car requires
a mechanic. And a broken heart requires a specialist too.
The Breakup Doctor is now in.
Call Brook Ogden a matchmaker-in-reverse. Let others bring
people together; Brook, licensed mental health counselor,
picks up the pieces after things come apart. When her own
therapy practice collapses, she maintains perfect control:
landing on her feet with a weekly advice-to-the-lovelorn
column and a successful consulting service as the Breakup
Doctor: on call to help you shape up after you breakup.
But when her own relationship suddenly crumbles, Brook finds
herself engaging in almost every bad-breakup behavior she
preaches against. And worse, she starts a rebound
relationship with the most inappropriate of men: a
dangerously sexy bartender with anger-management issues—who
also happens to be a former patient.
As her increasingly out-of-control behavior lands her at
rock-bottom, Brook realizes you can't always handle a messy
breakup neatly—and that sometimes you can't pull yourself
together until you let yourself fall apart.
