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.

Honestly, I do not know how am I supposed to put this into words on how much I enjoy and loving this novel very much and this novel has been one of my favourite book in 2017, despite it was published last year. Tsk tsk. Why didn't realize this novel before or even the author? I feel so small in the book industry. I need to read more and discover more amazing author out there! Yes, I need to because they are amazing. Really!

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 spoil 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 has a boyfriend which soon to be an ex, Nate. That's first spoiled. ops #sorrybutnotsosorry The fact that they have been together for 4 years has to make Isla being too attached with Nate. She feels 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 broken up with Nate, she feels lost and what makes 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 meets an amazing friend who also has experience the same things as her, heartbroken, relationship failure and one guy who has dated 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 word 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 a 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 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. Sometimes a person who is out from our circle of friends could help us, they could giving us 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 love 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! 💗

The process of decision making is never easy. And I really enjoyed this well-written young adult romance that centered on teens dealing with the pain from breakups. I can relate to every words she wrote.
