She is called the Break-Up Artist and this all came about after breaking up with her boyfriend five years ago. She was absolutely heartbroken when Wes ended things and decided to share her experience, it was a very therapeutic way to cope with the emotions. She has lived, learnt and made it to the other side. Now she helps other couples breakup in a more amicable way. Her following and skills have caught the attention of a Hollywood publicist and she has now been asked to facilitate a very high profile couples break-up. This couldn’t have come at a better time, on the cusp of her book release, this publicity is like a dream come true for her publisher. Now she just needs to deliver what she promised. Wes, Katie’s heart crushing ex, is a Hollywood lawyer and works for the studio about to release a new movie starring the couple about to break-up. He needs them to stay together to keep up the illusion that potential moviegoers have about this high profile couple. A break-up could ruin the success of the film and his head will roll if this happens. When Katie agrees to spend a week with Selina and Ryder to assist them with their conscious uncoupling, she is surprised to find Wes is there also. Great, just what she needs - a confronting reminder of what she went through five years ago. And damn it, why is even better looking now without even trying to be? He seems determined to remind Katie how good they were and could be again. As Katie works to help this couple end things on good terms, Wes is working hard to show them how good they are together - effectively discreetly sabotaging Katie’s efforts. While she is working towards the break up he seems set on a make up. This was another fun, romantic read in the Cupids series.

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! *ARC provided for a voluntary honest review.* ~Kelly

    The Break-Up Artist is a fun and heart warming second chance rom-com. Katie and Wes were both very likeable, easy to believe in characters, and I loved that Selena was neither entitled or bitchy. The author created a cast of characters that together added depth and colour to the story. Second-chances are a guilty pleasure of mine, some are better than others. In this one I liked that their original break-up wasn't cliched.

In this one I liked that their original break-up wasn't cliched. Both played a part in it and though Wes really hadn't come out of it with any honour he DID acknowledge his mistakes and show contrition. In fact the whole plot line avoided the usual cliches and was very much about BOTH characters growth and learning. The story is quite slow burn, which worked well with the plot line, but once the chemistry ignited this pair certainly burned hot. I found it easy to believe in their connection and emotions, and really enjoyed reading their story. A very pleasant way to spend a few hours.

I love that I know exactly what I'm in store for with her books - they're quick, low angst, and playful with a dash of humor. This second chance romance is no different; I really enjoyed the story and it just flew by. Though I do think the hero is a bit of a dud (more on that in a minute), I finished this in one sitting and stayed connected the whole way through. The story follows Katie, a woman who went through a breakup so devastating that it inspired her to start a blog, becoming the Breakup Artist and even landing a book deal. When the guy she'd been dating for a while, Wes, ghosted her, it changed Katie and made her a little more jaded about love. When they bump into each other again, it starts a chain of events that lead them to explore all of the reasons they went wrong the first time around, and wonder if maybe they've grown into two people who are right for each other. I'll be honest... I REALLY struggled with the circumstances of the original breakup in this one, so it colored my opinion of Wes. He was offered a job in another state and didn't think that their relationship was that serious, so rather than dealing with the drama of a breakup, he just... moved to another state without mentioning it to his girlfriend. Kinda hard to recover from that one. Ultimately, I was able to get over that by thinking of it more along the lines of "they were just having fun and didn't know each other that well" instead of "but they're meant to be!" Still didn't love him, and there certainly wasn't enough groveling. That being said, it really didn't hinder my enjoyment of the rest of the book. It's the kind of light, easy read that's perfect for unwinding after a long day, and I'm definitely looking forward to checking out what's next for the series. I received an ARC via Give Me Books and am voluntarily leaving a review of this rom com.

So Katie is summoned to come to La to help someone out and low and behold but who is there but her ex Wes who is the lawyer, and we get to see how these two go around each other and deal with each other, sometimes they annoy you but they both have changed and they get so this and so do you..I was a little sad that I for some reason didn't know that this was the 4th book but I plan on remedying that since I enjoyed this one!

    I appear to be in the minority here, but I can live with that. Ms Monroe's writing was, for the most part, snarky and fun. I especially enjoyed hearing the main characters' thoughts, and there were some truly enjoyable moments in this book. BUT... The hero absolutely did not work for me. This is a second chance romance, and the first time around Wes ghosted Katie, his girlfriend of about six months. 100%. He knew what he was doing and didn't have any mitigating circumstances that would have made it I appear to be in the minority here, but I can live with that. Ms Monroe's writing was, for the most part, snarky and fun. I especially enjoyed hearing the main characters' thoughts, and there were some truly enjoyable moments in this book. BUT... The hero absolutely did not work for me. This is a second chance romance, and the first time around Wes ghosted Katie, his girlfriend of about six months. 100%. He knew what he was doing and didn't have any mitigating circumstances that would have made it seem okay-ish, then or now. His only excuse was that she had lead him to believe that she really wasn't into them as a couple (she didn't answer his texts immediately, wasn't always 100% available to him 24/7, said she didn't like ice cream...I can't remember all of his reasons now but they were all equally lame). Even if you take her I was trying to play it cool and be what I thought he wanted me to be excuse into account--which sure, she should have been true to herself all along, but honestly, doesn't everyone have that period of being a little less of yourself in the beginning of a relationship, so you don't scare the other person off with your humanity/bodily functions/oddities right away? Wait until they really like you and are less likely to dump you because you floss your teeth weirdly to let them witness it?--that's no excuse to move across the country without warning and ignore all of her attempts to contact him. I mean, really. Grow the F up, buddy. Ok, that was then. Did Wes redeem himself now? Kind of...and then he blew it big time. He did apologize, finally, and for a while they were fairly cute together. But then he kept a big, major thing from Katie--a thing that was not only important to her but also was literally potentially life changing for another character--and Wes was pretty unapologetic about that too. She, rightly, dumps him. But then he (view spoiler)[quits his job because he suddenly grows a conscience and won't be a party to exploiting the same actress whose life he nearly ruined by keeping the aforementioned secret, and then shows up at Katie's book signing with a sort-of grovel? (hide spoiler)] Nope, not enough. I don't believe this guy has truly learned how to behave honorably and will continue to do so going forward. Katie deserved better. TLDR: enjoyable writing style is hampered by a dickish, ill-redeemed hero. I've liked other books from this author, though, so hopefully this is a one-off. Like I said, I'm apparently in the minority, so make of this what you will. Rating: 2 1/2 stars / C- I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Second chances aren’t something that a break-up artist believes in, hence the moniker using the the words ‘break-up,’ but that’s exactly what happens between Katie and her entertainment lawyer ex-boyfriend when he comes back into her life in quite an unusual way. The fact that Katie turned her pain into something that redefined her entire life is extraordinary and telling about the kind of person she is and the fact that she knew she needed to do something to help herself shows that she didn’t want to lose herself because of it. Wes is definitely a charming hero and it’s clear that he’s learned from the mistakes he made when he was younger, but, at times, he had a vibe that I just wasn’t feeling; it might just be the fact that he’s a lawyer and they definitely have a different mindset, but it took me a bit to believe he could be trusted with Katie’s heart again, and I do feel like she made it too easy for him to become such a huge part of her life again, but I do understand that the heart wants what the heart wants. The Breakup Artist is a unique second-chance romance that will appeal to romance readers who are in the mood for a different kind of story line and quirky situations and comical encounters with just the right amount of drama and heart. 4 Poison Apples

The fourth book in Lila Monroe’s Cupids series, The Breakup Artist was a charming, laugh-out-loud funny and sexy second-chance romantic comedy. Wes, an entertainment attorney, and Katie, a relationship blogger known as The Breakup Artist, have a history that includes the breakup that launched Katie’s career. She lands a celebrity couple and the breakup that could put her on the map, but Katie is shocked to find her own ex in the mix managing Katie’s two superstar clients for a Hollywood movie studio. Wes and Katie’s breakup wasn’t exactly nasty, but considering he pulled a disappearing act on her, and she never got any kind of closure, Katie is hesitant to trust him again. The problem is that they were both young and did dumb things during their relationship, but it was Wes who handled it callously, leaving Katie confused and broken hearted. Chemistry was never a problem between them, though, and much to Katie’s dismay, that chemistry is still there despite her reluctance to let Wes back in. All those sparks finally catch fire, and this couple gives in to all that sizzling chemistry. Witty banter and a swoony, steamy second-chance romance come together in a story that was full of humor, heart and heat. The Breakup Artist by Lila Monroe gets 4 smooches from me! ~Danielle Palumbo

Katie and Wes are terrific characters, but so are Selena, and Brooke, and even a couple of others who are much less likable. After all, those characters are necessary too, right? We even get a few glimpses at some past favorites in this series of standalones. So, what it all comes down to is this one is another well written, fast paced story from Lila Monroe.

She started a blog called The Break Up Artist after her own experience of being left heart broken. Second chance romance are my favourite love stories. Wes and Katie have sizzling chemistry. Immediately at first “reunion” I could feel the sparks. I totally felt for Katie.

She definitely isn’t over her feelings for him and she is questioning whether or not she is following her own advise of The Break Up Artist. Wes is attractive and totally charming. Katie is given a big opportunity but with that opportunity comes the fact that she will be working closely with Wes. There is a lot of fun, light moments but steamy passionate ones too. I love the concept that things happen for a reason and the fact Wes is back in Katie’s life means something. There was a ton of growth between these characters from beginning to end and I devoured it in one sitting.

    I love a good second chance romance and The Breakup Artist is just that!! Katie and Wes haven’t crossed paths in years but fate has a funny way of stepping in and making sure things happen as they are supposed to! This lighthearted, sweet, and fun book will have you smiling and enjoying this second chance, slow-burn romance!

    The Break-up Artist is book 4 in Lila Monroe’s Cupids series of standalone romance novellas. I was intrigued by the premise of dumped and heartbroken, Eliza creating a job of blogging about breaking up that eventually leads to a book deal. That has to be the classic example of turning lemons into lemonade! The main characters are likable enough. Eliza’s job as a break-up consultant seems to only fuel her personal pity-party about the loss of a boyfriend years ago.

I was intrigued by the premise of dumped and heartbroken, Eliza creating a job of blogging about breaking up that eventually leads to a book deal. That has to be the classic example of turning lemons into lemonade! The main characters are likable enough. Eliza’s job as a break-up consultant seems to only fuel her personal pity-party about the loss of a boyfriend years ago. Talk about not letting go and living in the past! Wes Baxter, who ghosted Eliza and turned her into “The Break-Up Artist” has apparently grown up and grown a conscience. However, I doubt I’d ever see someone who ghosted me as a potential match in the future. Letting go of that little detail, present-day Eliza and Wes are a good couple even though “explosive chemistry” doesn’t come to mind when describing them. I thoroughly enjoyed Selena, the young screen star who too easily takes back her horrid co-star/boyfriend time and time again. At times, she is the quintessential movie star and at other times, she is sweet-as-pie and down-to-earth. The plot is well paced and straightforward. The angst is minimal, and the conflict is fairly inconsequential and easily negotiated. While The Break-Up Artist is not my favorite in the series, I did enjoy it for a quick, fun escape.

    This was a good read but it wasn’t one of my favorite in this series. I just felt how they resolved their issues in the end a little anticlimactic. Wes and Katie did show growth as individuals after their breakup but there times I felt Wes didn’t fully get it but it did finally click for him.

    3.5 🌟’s. I picked up this book, my first in the series, and had it read before going to bed. It is a complete standalone and even though you will get the previous characters popping in, you won’t feel left out or behind in any way. It’s a very quick read of a second chance romance. Katie is a break up specialist. She is “the” Breakup Artist. She will help you end your relationship so each of you walk away with a sense of full closure. What got her started was her very own heartbreak from Wes. Sh 3.5 🌟’s. I picked up this book, my first in the series, and had it read before going to bed.

What got her started was her very own heartbreak from Wes. She has made a name for herself in New York, but now she has been summoned to the west coast to help out an A-Lister. The only thing is, Wes is also there to oversee things as the lawyer to the star. There were some funny moments throughout the book. There is also a lot of name dropping which gives you a very Hollywood feel about it all. At times I felt both the couples lacked maturity, and the storyline had stages of unauthentic events. I liked that Katie had found herself and was more comfortable around Wes in LA. He too had changed since they had dated five years ago and I wanted more paragraphs from his POV. He was very swoon worthy. I feel fans from the previous books will get a kick out of Katie and Wes’s story. *Reviewed by Monique for JoandIsaLoveBooks Blog.

    Every time I pick up one of Lila Monroe’s books, I know for a fact that I’ll be surprised by the contents inside as she always changes things up a little with each book and this time was no exception. When I went into reading this book I was pulled and gripped to the story and I love it when that happens, I thought that Lila had a great plot, a great idea and the characters were just perfect.

When I went into reading this book I was pulled and gripped to the story and I love it when that happens, I thought that Lila had a great plot, a great idea and the characters were just perfect. I thought everything was going well until I got to about half way through and that’s when I found myself not being as gripped as I was back in the beginning. There was nothing bad about what had been written, I just found that there wasn’t enough there to grip me into keep reading, but I ploughed on through and at about 80% I found the book to pick back up again. Other than the slight mishap in the middle of the book I do think that Lila did a good job. I thought that Katie was an interesting character, I also loved her relationship with Selena. It’s not often you get to read about a celebrity from an authors world and have it so that they seem quite down to earth. Don’t get me wrong, I can see that most celebrities tend to find being in the spotlight a little overwhelming and they need the occasional break, but Selena is just a down to earth girl and how she is with Katie is just incredible, you can tell that they are just going to be great friends. Wes, I still have judgment out for as I’m not truthfully sure what to make of him, but I do think that how Lila wrote him did bring the book to life. Overall it was an enjoyable read and I’m looking forward to seeing what else Lila has planned. Katie is known as the Break-Up Artist and all she does is help couples find the right way to break up with someone or to help someone see that the relationship they’re in isn’t exactly healthy and wise for them. What helps Katie be as successful as she is, she has helped used her own personal experience from a break up and turned it into a positive outcome which helps her in her line of work. The only things that she’s worried about is her book launch that she has coming up and the fact she feels a tiddly bit guilty about how she is helping others overcome their relationships when she’s never exactly gotten over her own break up. However, she knows for a fact that she won’t be seeing him any time soon after he ghosted her five years ago. But as you can imagine, life has a way of working and it’s decided that it’s going to throw both her and her ex Wes together and whilst they are working the opposite sides, they are going to be in close proximity of each other for a week…. Will Katie be able to handle being around Wes or is it just going to keep bringing up unresolved feelings for him? Will her book launch be a huge success???

    Katie Is the highly successful Breakup Artist. She started this new career five years ago with a blog she developed to help her deal with the sudden ghosting of the love of her life, Wes Baxter. Wes left town without a word. He refused to respond to any messages and blocked her on all social media sites. Why? She didn’t understand the why, so she did the only thing she could think to do.

She started this new career five years ago with a blog she developed to help her deal with the sudden ghosting of the love of her life, Wes Baxter. Wes left town without a word. He refused to respond to any messages and blocked her on all social media sites. Why? She didn’t understand the why, so she did the only thing she could think to do. She used her blog to work through her breakup then she worked to help others work through the pain and heartache of their breakups. From that Katie built a successful career helping people “wave goodbye to bad relationships so they can free themselves up to find Mr. or Miss Right instead.” “Some people say that love is blind, but I’ve always thought it’s more like that third margarita: it makes your head spin, and your knees unsteady, and can lead to spontaneous out bursts of Celine Dion’s greatest his—with the right person. But when it’s Mr. Wrong” Well, you find yourself waking up the next morning with a killer hangover, regretting just how fast your pants came off.” Lila Monroe writes the perfect books to bring me out of a funk. She makes me laugh and feel good. Katie and Wes are fun characters. It is fun from the start with Katie’s first accidental run in with Wes on the streets of New York City through their time together at the ranch of the famous Hollywood “It” couple through to the end. Katie and Wes are at odds for the most of the book, but there is chemistry and sizzle. Wes wants Selena and Ryder to stay together as he is a lawyer for the studio. Selena hired Katie to help her with a successful breakup. The Breakup Artist is the fourth book in Lila Monroe’s Cupid series focused on five friends finding love. This story is a second chance romance that hits all the right buttons for me. I opened the book to pass a little time then before I knew it, I was at The End. I enjoyed every minute with Katie and Wes. I recommend The Breakup Artist for a funny break from the dregs of the day. If you haven’t read any of the other books in the series, you are fine, as each one stand on its own. Although I will caution, after reading The Breakup Artist , you will want to learn more about Katie’s friends. Lucky for Lila Monroe fans, the next book the Cupids series is coming soon. There isn’t long to wait for more laughs.

This is part of a series but I have not read any of the other books before. It seems to easily stand alone. Its a 2nd chance at love but the two are not in love at all when the book starts. Katie is The Break Up Artist which largely is where she helps a couple realise they are better off apart and the why it doesn't work. To help them breakup but also to figure out what they need in a new relationship. She even has written a book about the subject. She credits one of her exes with this career, Wes. One day she runs into him in NYC, he ghosted her 5 years before and she has hated him ever since. But he is with a movie star that is in a BAD relationship and so she gets hired to come to LA and help this movie star figure out how to end her bad relationship. Wes is sorry he ghosted Katie 5 years before because he was ghosted himself and knows how awful it is. Now he works for the movie studio and he needs the movies stars coupledom to survive until the movie is out. So he tries to make them remember the good times while Katie tries to show them why it wouldn't work. This was a fun story that is told in dual POV. Wes was a jerk and well in this book he is a bit of a jerk again, but it comes from a confused place. What he does know is he likes Katie and she has changed a lot. Katie was an awesome character. She sticks to her morals and she is there for her client in the good, bad and in between moments. She is the hero in this story and I absolutely loved her.

Using her heart break to save others from feeling the way she did, Katie soon becomes 'the break up artist', helping make break ups as seamless as possible. •• With her first book about to launch and the publishing house limiting her funding Katie needs all the publicity she can get. But the last thing After having her heart broken and stomped on by her college boyfriend Wes, when he took the cowards way out and ghosted her, Katie decides to make lemonade out of the lemons life has thrown at her. Using her heart break to save others from feeling the way she did, Katie soon becomes 'the break up artist', helping make break ups as seamless as possible. •• With her first book about to launch and the publishing house limiting her funding Katie needs all the publicity she can get. But the last thing she was expecting was to run into Wes and one of Hollywood's biggest stars, wanting to have nothing to do with Wes but needing the publicity Katie is unable to turn down the offer to help celeb Selena break things off with her co-star and on-again-of-again boyfriend Ryder. •• What started as a week away to help Selena and Ryder amicably break up soon turns into Katie and Wes rekindling their old flame. With both Selena and Katie giving their S.O's a second chance all seems to be going well that is until Ryder messes everything up. The question now remains will Katie be able to forgive Wes for something he didn't directly do or will their past colour her decision. •• The Breakup Artist was a cute second chance romance. As with all Lil Monroe books this was a cute fast steamy read. I will say that I liked that their first break up was not a cliche and that they realised that they both had a hand in the problem. It was nice to see that they both grow as individuals and that helped bring them back together. •• I loved that there was two stories in one book and I got invested in not only Katie and Wes but also Selena and Ryder's story. I will say that I liked the relationship that Selena and Katie developed and that it showed that everyone goes through the same problems regardless of status. Overall this was a cute slow burn, second chance love story that any romance lover will enjoy.
