OUT OF PRACTICE
When your relationship is on life support, the Breakup Doctor is on call.
There’s no shortage of broken hearts in Breakup Doctor Brook Ogden’s successful breakup counseling practice—if love is a battlefield, then Brook is the cavalry. Luckily her own love life is in full recovery: after a long, tortuous road, she and Ben Garrett are finally headed down the aisle.
But when a local TV personality—and former frenemy—invites Brook onto her show, she’s blindsided live on the air when the interview turns into an act of long-delayed revenge meant to publicly humiliate her. Brook’s an expert at getting back on your feet when life knocks you down, but as the blows keep piling on—with a betrayal she never saw coming and a family crisis that threatens to pull the foundation out from under her—her confidence starts slinking away. With her clients dropping her faster than a one-night stand, suddenly the Breakup Doctor’s career is in critical care.
Brimming with both the sublime and ridiculous aspects of love—romantic and otherwise—Out of Practice is a funny and heartwarming tale about loss, grief, and failure that will resonate with all who have loved, lost…and dared to love again.

Loved this book and how it wrapped up this whole series!
Brook and Ben are still together and planning a wedding, well sort of…there is no date and Brook isn’t feeling the love on it all. She loves Ben, just can’t get in the wedding planning groove. And it doesn’t help that she is blindsided by a classmate from high school that is hell bent on revenge all these years later. Seriously, let it go!
Brook is also in a quandary where her career is going and is she doing what she should or is there something else out there. Basically this book is all about Brook reevaluating her life and I think we can all relate to that at one point or another.
I really enjoyed the book and while I guessed where some things would go (the wedding location), I was very happy with the way it all turned out. There was one question I had but it was answered near the end so it wasn’t something left hanging that wasn’t resolved. Ambiguous I know, but can’t spoil anything!
We give it 5 paws up and are sad that this series has ended but look forward to a new series from Phoebe!
