It’s a game of exes and oohs! Enjoy the sizzling new standalone romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author, Lila Monroe!
I’m an expert in break-ups. From the slow fade, to extreme ghosting, to, ‘but you never said I couldn’t send pics of my junk to your step-sister on Instagram’ - I’ve seen it all… and built a mini-empire along the way. My blog, the Break-Up Artist, uses my past heartache to help people move on - and avoid weeping on the floor at 3am consuming their body weight in spray cheese and Oreos. Ahem.
Now, I have a new job that could mean the big-time: helping a famous Hollywood it-couple navigate their tricky break-up. Except not everyone wants them Splitsville. The movie studio needs to keep them together to promote their big movie, and they’ve sent someone to make sure I fail in my first VIP gig.
Wes Baxter. Also known as my ex.
Also ALSO known as, the guy who broke my heart so thoroughly, I had to turn myself into a self-help guru just to get over him.
I’m determined to follow my own advice (no drooling over Wes’s perfect abs, or remembering how he rocked my world) but being trapped together at a luxe country retreat isn’t helping things… And neither is Wes’s early-morning naked swim habit. Soon, love is in the air, the sparks between us are hotter than ever, and I’m seriously questioning my ‘no backsies’ policy.
Wes swears he’s changed. He wants to try again, and he’s got an annoyingly sexy way of convincing me. But can second chances really work? Or has the Break-Up Artist finally met her match?

I read this in an one afternoon, and Katie story was not at all what I expected. When I was first introduced to her in the previous book she was so rigid in her point of view. I really enjoyed reading, and see her break down the walls that she clearly built up herself.
I wanted to rate this book 4 stars because the story is pretty good, but the glaring writing mistakes were difficult to ignore. A supporting character’s name switches from Selena to Serena, and back again, several times throughout the first half of the book. At some point in chapter 8, the author calls a character by the name of another, “Selena and Wes” instead of “Selena and Ryder.” The main character is described as having blonde hair, then dark hair, then blonde, then dark again.
There’s also a significant lack of character description that you usually find in a romance novel. What color are the eyes and hair of the love interest, or even the main character? I couldn't tell you.
Review: Cupids 4: The Breakup Artist
The Breakup Artist by Lila Monroe is the fourth book in her slightly connected Cupids series. A standalone romance set in the same world as the other books in the series and connected by friendships with the other characters in those books. This is the story of Katie Peters, the breakup artist, and Wes Baxter, her ex that made her the woman she is today and who's ghosting of her caused her to become the breakup artist. Told in dual POV, set between New York and California, with some crazy movie stars and hollywood business people thrown in, this was a feel-good romance, with some angst, some wonderful back and forth between Katie and Wes, some Hollywood dramatics, some new wonderful friends and an ultimately awesome happily ever after. For me, a Lila Monroe story is like a good friend. Comfort, camaraderie, and a great time had by all. Loved it! Enjoy!
