Product Details (as per amazon page)
Breakup Doctor Brook Ogden has spent the last year sifting through the fallout from the disastrous decision that led to her unconscious uncoupling with boyfriend Ben Garrett. Despite advising her clients you can’t be friends with an ex, she and Ben have somehow begun to stitch together a friendship—one Brook hopes is slowly turning into more. That is, until Ben introduces his new girlfriend, Perfect Pamela, a paragon of womanly virtues who is everything Brook is not.
While Brook navigates her newly volatile emotional life, an unwelcome surprise shows up on her doorstep: the ex-fiancé who broke her heart two years ago—one month before their wedding. Between her ex’s desire to rekindle their attachment, her best friend Sasha’s unexpected crisis, and her own unsquelchable feelings for Ben, Brook finds herself questioning the personal progress she’s made in the last two years—and threatened with the highest-stakes Breakup Doctor failures she’s ever faced.
This is the 3rd book in The Break Up Doctor series. I haven’t had the pleasure of reading books 1 and 2 but this did not deter me from enjoying book 3 and could easily be enjoyed as a stand alone novel. However, to appreciate the full journey of the characters I would thoroughly recommend reading books 1, 2 and 3.
In honour of the publication of book 3, Heart Conditions, the publishers have decided to offer book 1 of the series at a discount price of 99p. To purchase book 1 please follow the link here
I’d like to thank the author, Phoebe Fox, for an arc in return for an honest review.
Brook Ogden is a relationships counsellor and her practice as The Breakup Doctor with her newspaper column and radio show are doing well. However, Brook’s own personal life is left a little tattered. After her sudden break-up from her fiancée 2 years ago which left her heart broken Brook spiralled into two further failed relationships. The last relationship was with Ben. Brook still has feelings for Ben and is torn by how the relationship ended. Brook has recently started to see Ben again, just as friends, as she helps out with dog sitting duties. However, Ben has moved on and is in a relationship with ‘Perfect Pamela’. Can the shared love of Ben’s dog, Jake, bring them back together?
However, nothing runs smoothly for Brook when an unexpected visitor turns up at her house – Michael, her ex fiancée who dumped her the month before their wedding. Brook was left with unanswered questions from Michael following the break-up and is angry and confused whilst still holding fond memories of what they once had.
This is the first book I’ve read by Phoebe Fox and I really enjoyed it. The text flowed well and I was swiftly reading through the chapters wanting to find out happens next. Phoebe has created such great characters and I loved Brook and Ben’s friendship. I’d also like to add how refreshing the covers of Phoebe’s Break-up Doctor books are, love the contemporary illustration with the heart rhythm along the bottom. This was a fun filled, heart warming, romantic novel with a ‘will they, won’t they’ storyline? 4/5*
