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.

Brook Ogden, a licensed mental health counselor, lost her therapy practice. With the advice of her friend, she landed on a job as a breakup doctor. She had with a weekly advice column, and a consulting service. But when Brook's relationship goes wrong, Brook lost control and found her doing almost every bad-breakup behavior she advise her patient not to do.

I really, really like the idea of The Breakup Doctor. Brook was a wonderful character. She was calm and collected. But after her breakup, Brook was driving me insane with how she behaved. There are some scene that made me laugh, but most of the time, I just wanted to strangle her when she did almost every bad-breakup behavior she preaches against. But I think anyone who has gone through a bad breakup can relate to Brook.

The supporting  characters were fun. I love Sasha, and Brook's parents. I was a bit disappointed that there weren't a lot more of Ben, the guy she met at the ER. The Breakup Doctor was definitely a light, fun read about handling a breakup. The story was well written, and I enjoyed reading this book.
