The Breakup Artist was a delightful read.
I smiled all the time while reading it and these characters made my day so much better.

Lila Monroe writing is a sure thing to put me in a good mood especially in the gray days.

Katie became the Breakup Artist when her boyfriend, Wes, ghosted her to start anew on the West coast.
She made a blog to overcome her sadness and insecurities, and after five years spent helping hundreds people with their breakups her work is really appreciated and she is also g

The Breakup Artist was an utter delight to read! The quirky and unique story line, partnered with the comedic dynamic between the characters, was super enjoyable.

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 pictur

This was quite a unique story... actually, each book from this series is.

It's a second-chance romance between a break-up guru and her ex entertainment lawyer boyfriend. I mean what are the chances they'd bumped into each other after all these years right? They don'r even live in the same zip code anymore. Fate is a funny things sometimes... If it's meant to be, it will always find it's way.

It's a fun and easy read. There were times when these two drove me nuts and frustrated me but it was par

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. Both played a part in it and though Wes really hadn't come out of it with

Katie is known as the Breakup Artist because her blog has helped countless others get over the brutal breakup we've all experienced at least once.

Another light, gooey rom com from Lila Monroe! 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.

This was a second chance story and I enjoyed it and when I started reading I was thinking wow it has been a little while that I have read a Lila Monroe which surprised me because I like her books they tend to bring me a smile as did this one so I was glad to get it. Both Katie and Wes made mistakes in their relationship which caused the break up- I am glad that they realized it takes two to tango.

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.


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

What happens when you’re confronted with the man responsible for your broken heart…the guy you needed to get over and struggled, so much so, that you became a self-help guru to walk other people through their break-ups?

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 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 Hollywoo

Any time I'm looking for a fun escape, Lila Monroe is a pretty good bet. The Breakup Artist was a super fun read with engaging characters, plenty of laughs, and some great feels. I'd like to say that the romance won me over and was the best part of this one, but if I'm being honest, it wasn't just the romance. It was all of it - the couple, the secondary characters, the silly situations - all of it comes together for a feel-good read that's perfect for whiling away a weekend. Katie and Wes are t ...more

I loved the unique storyline in the Breakup Artist. This was so fun to read. Katie is a quirky, energetic woman. 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 advi ...more

This book is the perfect distraction from all of life’s worries. This is the fourth book in the “Cupids” series that centers around Katie, who is more of an anti-Cupid. Five years ago, she had her heart broken by Wes when he moved to LA without telling her and totally ghosted her. From her heartbreak, she started a blog and became The Breakup Artist, navigating her clients through their breakups. When she is hired by a famous movie star to help with her breakup with her co-star, Wes is the studi ...more

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. Talk about not letting go and li

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

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 received a complimentary ARC - early release copy of this book in Kindle format from the author for review purposes.

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

Both Katie and Wes were lovable characters. Their attraction and chemistry was intense and undeniable. I loved their witty banter and the easiness of their relationship. They were young and stupid when they first met five years ago. I'm glad th

When Wes Baxter ghosted her a few years back, she poured her heartache into her blog, which eventually grew into a profession of her helping others get through a break up and over their ex. Now she has a chance to provide her services to the hottest couple in Hollywood, and her old flame Wes just happens to be the studio attorney for the golden couple.
