I finished a much loved series this month...The Naturals.  with the final book in the 4 book series, Bad Blood...loved it, btw.  I also really enjoyed the conclusion to Vicarious Duo, with Ferocious, which I received an ARC of.

 

I also finished up a few reading challenges, 3 of them this month, actually.  A few of the books I've read this month were read just for this purpose.  Like the Breakup Support Group, Stalking Jack The Ripper and The First Time She Drowned.  I'm actively trying to start less of these so I can finish some of the super long ones.

My Thoughts

 

This is a super cute read for a preteen girl or any girl looking to get over being dumped by some boy.  Did I feel this was something that might occur or happen in real life, probably not…but the life lessons TBSG is trying to impart are present and for the most part, solid. 

 I read this mostly because of reading challenge I'm doing where I needed Character names, and it really scored on that front for me.  With both a I name for female with Isla Rush and U Name for Male with Emory Underwood.  Sometimes, reading challenges get me into some fairly awful books and this one wasn't one of those…it was an easy breezy read.

 

 

 

Ratings Breakdown

 

Plot: 3.8/5

Main Characters:  3.8/5

Secondary Characters:  3.8/5

The Feels:  3.8/5

Addictiveness:  3.5/5

Theme or Tone:  3/5

Flow (Writing Style):  3/5

Backdrop (World Building):  3/5

Book Cover:  4/5

Ending:  2/5  Cliffhanger:  Nope.

 

Will I read more from this Author?  I don't think so, unless it turns out to be just what I need for a reading challenge.

Out of Practice (The Breakup Doctor) (Volume 4) - Phoebe Fox

4.5 Stars I really, really like this series. This time, Brook has some serious issues of her own. She's burnt out. She's even yelled at a few of her clients. She's even had a fight with her fiance and she can't even think about a wedding date. She knows she wants to be married, but she doesn't want the wedding. And to top it off, she thinks her mother is having early on-set dementia. It's just all to much for her. She wants to quit, but her fiance talks her into taking some time off instead. That's when the real problems begin to unfold.

This series started out a little different for me, but it has certainly grown on me. The author has really grown the characters and the story line just keeps getting better. I feel like they are like my new best friends. Now, I just have to sit back and wait for the next one!

Thanks to Henery Press and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest review. One that is my words, I was not paid or prodded to write these words. They are my own.

Out of Practice (Breakup Doctor #4)
Out of Practice (Breakup Doctor #4) - Ph... Out of Practice (Breakup Doctor #4) - Phoebe Fox This is the only book in this series that I've read and this is the fourth and last one. Not exactly the best place to start a series. Typically I would go back and read the previous books, but this time I didn't. Maybe I would have been more taken with the characters if I had read the whole series, but I didn't. I felt like a lot of the relationship between Brook and Ben had already happened and that I needed someone to bring me up-to-date on it. It was strange and sort of flat up until the end when they finally actually put some effort into getting married.

Brook's experience on the TV show was horrifying and so cruel. Then to have the newspaper editor take Madison's notes and recording and rewrite her article about Brook so soon afterwards. All this very public embarrassment causes Brook to pull back from all her involvements and doubt herself. But talks with the people in her life help her work through what is important to her and find her way. Once she gets her thoughts straight, she charges ahead putting all the aspects of her life in place. She paves the way for HEA.

I think I would have liked some of the previous books in this series, but I'm not going to go back and read them at this point. This book has such a forward motion and emotion to it, that going back just isn't an option. So, if you want to read this book, I strongly encourage you to read books one through three first. Then you will be ready to read and enjoy book four thoroughly.

I was provided a digital copy of this book by Henery Press and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I am not being compensated in any way. All opinions are fully my own.

Cure for the Common Breakup
Cure for the Common Breakup - Beth Kendrick Please note that I gave this book 4.5 stars which I rounded up to 5 on Goodreads since Goodreads does not allow for half stars on its site.

We follow flight attendant Summer Benson after she survives a plane crash and her boyfriend (who she thought was going to propose) dumping her once she's in the hospital. She hightails it to Black Dog Bay in Delaware to lick her wounds after remembering the brochure being on the plane and mentioning that it was a place for those single and heart broken to recover. Once Summer arrives in Black Dog Bay she meets the year long residents, the summer residents, and the mayor and his sister who she finds herself attracted to and wanting to take care of in that order.

I found Summer to be hilarious from beginning to end. When she first arrives in Black Dog Bay she is beaten down, and as a reader I was surprised that she was honestly. She didn't seem keen on marrying her hot nice guy pilot boyfriend. And for her to take things as she did felt weird. We figure out why, but it was a long meandering road to get there, and once we did it made sense, but I wish that we had, had some sort of resolution to Summer and her parents in some way. That whole thing hung over the book and honestly was one of the reasons why I didn't give this five stars.

The book was funny and sad in parts, but mostly funny. Reading about Summer and the other women in Black Dog Bay trying to get over their exes sounded like my friends and I in our 20s when we would burn our exes pictures. I have no idea why women do this, we just do. I thought adding in the little wrinkle with Summer trying to deal with Black Dog Bay's orneriest resident also made things interesting. But, another reason why I didn't give this book five stars, was the choice that Summer was forced to make. I felt like for a second this book had switched over to a regency romance since those are the only books that have set-ups like this. It really didn't work for me at all in a contemporary romance.

I have been to Delaware many many times, and I did laugh a bit that Black Dog Bay Delaware was super popular with summer residents and had people living there who had million dollar homes. If this was a place a little closer to D.C. maybe I could buy it, but other than that the fictional little town sounded cute and I wish that it existed. The book store, the Whinery, the hair salon and other places sounded like every single women who has been dumped fantasy.

The chemistry between Summer and the mayor, Dutch Jansen was believable and actually made sense. With Dutch and Summer both thinking that she is only there for a set point in time, it made a lot of sense that they would get together thinking that there would be no strings attached.

I thought the ending was very cute and I promptly went and bough the second book in the series after I finished this.
