Breaking up is hard to do.

It’s even harder when you’re not expecting it.

Brooke Jensen is a planner. Not only in her personal life but also professionally as one of the most sought after event planners in Chicago.

But, when the ideal life she built for herself, complete with handsome, long-term boyfriend and perfect apartment crumbles, she realizes there are some things you just can’t plan for.

While trying to start anew from her best friend’s guest room and discovering the best doughnuts in the city, an idea sparks to life when she meets Levi. He’s intriguing, funny, and shockingly good-looking, and what had been a few stray thoughts becomes a new passion for Brooke, a blog detailing learning how to be single. The project introduces Brooke to new people and experiences, and keeps returning her back to Levi.

But, Brooke learns kismet may have been wrong when she learns Levi is the last person she should be interested in.

Falling for the wrong guy once has Brooke hesitant to start a new relationship, but Levi is quickly proving that The Fallback might be even better.

My review:

Brooke comes home unexpectedly to find her boyfriend of six years in bed with someone else. Crashing in her best friend’s guest room until she is able to find a new place to live, Brooke realizes she has forgotten how to be single. Between being buried in work and helping out with her best friend’s kids, she doesn’t have much time for a social life. After meeting Levi at a club her friend dragged her to, trying to get Brooke out and having fun, she decides to start a blog to journal her self-discovery journey. She can’t get Levi out of her mind, even though she thinks she isn’t ready to date again yet and tries to keep him in the friend zone. Just when she opens up to the idea of becoming more, she finds out who he is and realizes she can’t date him and keep her job.

What I liked: I liked Brooke a lot. She is smart, she is good at her job, and she makes the most out of her situation by spending more time with her friends and family. I loved her best friend Felicity. And honestly, I liked Catherine. She seems like a Bosszilla but there is more under the surface with her.

What I didn’t like: I can’t think of anything I didn’t like.

Overall: Really good story!
