Brook Ogden has never encountered a broken heart she couldn’t patch together. Her counseling practice as the Breakup Doctor—on call to help you shape up after a breakup—is so busy she’s expanded to offer group sessions. (Turns out there are far more than fifty ways to leave your lover.) Her radio show and advice column have made her a local celebrity, and even her personal life, after some gruesome breakups of her own, is in recovery: Ben Garrett started out as a revenge date against an ex, but has turned into so much more.

But when sizzling-hot Chip Santana, an old client she once shared a rather unprofessional midnight roll in the sand with, comes back into her life asking for her help, Brook can’t say no. Yet while she’s busy stitching up his relationship troubles, Chip reveals much more than a therapeutic interest in her.

In the standoff between her heart and her hormones, Brook’s cool, collected Wise Therapist persona begins to crack like thrown wedding china. She’s yelling at recalcitrant cheating husbands. Offering crazy advice to radio callers. She’s even hugging her clients.

When the situation goes critical, Brook’s forced into a decision she isn’t ready to make—and the Breakup Doctor has to decide what kind of casualties she’s willing to accept.

This book is the continuation of Breakup Doctor.  Brook's breakup counseling is going great. With her own radio show and advice column, Brook is now a local celebrity. Her business is doing great, and so is her love life.

I love Bedside Manners a bit more than the first book, The Breakup Doctor. Probably because I am used to Brook's character. I'm glad that her life is doing great after her breakup in the first book. I enjoy reading about Brook's relationship with Ben. But, there are times when I feel like I want to smack Brook for doing something stupid. Ugh!

I'm glad to see that Sasha is back. She sounds more composed now that she is in a new relationship. There are a few more interesting characters in Brook's counseling group. I thoroughly enjoy reading about the counseling group as well as her radio show. They were super fun! There are lots of interesting breakup and relationship problems that Brook has to deal with.

Bedside Manners are a light, fun read packed with tons of funny moments and romance, Although this is the second book of the series, Bedside Manners can be read as a standalone. I wasn't a big fan of how the book ended, but I guess, there will be a continuation to the series. I hope to see a lot more of Brook and her interesting patients.

I received a copy of this book from the author to provide an honest review.
