After four years of first love bliss, Isla Rush just got dumped.
Any hope she has of winning her ex-boyfriend back is shattered when the town rezones her neighborhood, forcing her to spend senior year at a wealthy high school in the next town over.
With a broken heart consuming her soul, Isla can’t focus on anything, except maybe Emory Underwood—a ridiculously hot guy who dates a new girl almost every day. She can’t help but crush on him, even though it’s wrong.
When memories of her ex make her cry in second period, the school counselor sends Isla to a club that meets during lunch. The Break-Up Support Group is a collection of broken-hearted misfits who are all helping each other heal.
Just when Isla’s heart is finally on the mend, Emory shows up, forced to atone for all the broken hearts he’s caused over the years. While hiding her massive crush, she helps him understand the seriousness of breaking a heart.
In turn, Emory offers to help Isla get back on the dating scene by agreeing to be her fake date for the homecoming dance. Isla gladly accepts the ruse, because if anyone can make her into a desirable girlfriend, Emory can! There's just one small problem.
Isla's little crush on Emory might be exactly full blown. And a homecoming fake date with him could push her over the edge to possibly uttering the "L Word!"
Isla can't afford another heartbreak so soon after the last one. She will have to resist his charms, refuse to look into those dreamy eyes, and above all else, not make the mistake of letting him kiss her.
If only she hadn't let her guard down at the end of the night, under the light of her porch in a toe-curling kiss moment of weakness. And now, after months of Break-Up Support Group therapy, and with a heart fully on the mend, Isla has just handed it over to a guy who knows full well just how to break it.
Anyway, back to the main point. What is The Break Up Support Group all about? Let me summarize it and trying my best not to spoil it too much. I will try not to spoilt too much but you know I might be spoiling it a bit. hiks
Isla, she is the only daughter in the most loving family and have a boyfriend which soon to be an ex, Nate. That's first spoil. ops #sorrybutnotsosorry The fact that they have been together for 4 years has make Isla being too attached with Nate. She feel that she can't live without Nate, her life is always will going to involve Nate around her but not for Nate. When Isla has broke up with Nate, she feel lost and what make it even worse she has to move to another school in her senior year. It's a bit depressing for her. New school, heartbroken - make it hard to move on. But somehow, The Break Up Support Group has come to the light where she meet an amazing friends who is also has an experience the same things as her, heartbroken, relationship failure and one guy who has date more girls also happened to shake her heart. Well, doesn't it sound intriguing to you?
I really love Cheyanne Young's writing. So easy to read, easy to digest every words in her writing which make me happy to read right from the start till the end of the chapter. Whilst, the character. Hmm. I can't pick one for my favourite characters because all of them are definitely are my favourite. I love how the Break Up Support Group trying their best to help and motivate and finding solution in trying to mend a heartbroken girl. They definitely a supportive group. Even though Emory Underwood used to date a lot of girls from the school, he is also has help Isla to move on from her past relation, be strong, discover new things and found new love. Ciara! Gosh! How I wish I have her as my best friend. Self-explanatory?
Last but not least, the Break Support Group is like an example to our society - helping a person who in need of help/support/motivate/giving good words to mend their heartbroken, depression, sadness. Sometime a person who are out from our circle of friends could help us, they could giving us a different advice, something that could really really really help us!
Psst, I just can't get enough from Isla Rush and Emory Underwood. I need to more about the two of them. Can I have the second book? hiks 😄😉
Two years ago I find myself a situation where I need to make the best decision for myself and this quote is like a 'pang' to myself;
The hardest decision you'll ever face in life is choosing whether to walk away or try harder
I definitely recommend this book to you because you will absolutely enjoy it to the fullest. Because I loving it so much and thank you so much to Cheyanne Young for giving me an opportunity to read your amazing books! I would love to read more books from you! 💗
