Genres: Contemporary, Mystery, Young Adult
Once upon a time, Becca was the Break-Up Artist, tearing apart unhealthy relationships at her school for just $100 via PayPal. But after a job went really wrong, she went legit for love and now brings couples together. Crushing on that supercute guy in Chemistry but too shy to say hi? Becca has the right formula. Pining for that artsy girl who vowed never to date a jock? Becca will ensure love conquers all. She's even engineered a relationship of her own: the funny, sweet and unbelievably cute Fred Teplitzky, the one guy who knows exactly what to say to make our unflappable heroine&...well, flappable.
But before she can pick out a graduation robe and enjoy her last months at Ashland High, Becca has to deal with a new Break-Up Artist on the block. And this master manipulator is dead set on one thing: revenge. Someone is going around destroying all of the couples she's worked hard to unite. Now Becca has to outwit and outscheme her new foe in a dirty cat-and-mouse chase filled with hacked emails, video surveillance, reputation ruining and a few candy hearts. Especially when she realizes that the Revenge Artist's number one target is her and Fred.
Looks like there are no such things as clean breaks.

Do you guys remember The Break-up Artist? Yes, Becca Williamson is back, but she doesn’t break-up people anymore. She has changed.
But I’ve changed. For real. I’m a different person. I have bangs
Bangs definitely changes people! I have bangs, and it did make a huge difference in my life. bigsmile
Becca is now a relationship engineer. Not a matchmaker. Matchmaking is pairing people up and hoping for the best. Being a relationship engineer means ‘doing everything in her power to know the outcome beforehand‘. She still asks to be paid $100 via Paypal for her services. She now offers to bring potential couples together for a fee, and she actually has a five-step process to do this: Preparation, Anticipation, Deliberation, Application, and Celebration.
Becca is in a relationship now. For the first time in her life, she’s living with the perks of having a boyfriend. But being a senior in high school, there’s those typical teenager problems: college applications, relationship issues, and then there’s this mystery she has to solve.
Becca started receiving mysterious messages, and there is someone who is sabotaging the couples she fixed up. Who might that be? I had an idea on who it was when it was first revealed that there’s a sabotaging going on. The mystery definitely added excitement to this contemporary read. It makes you want to read page after page to find out who The Revenge Artist is.
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future. Concentrate the mind on the present moment.
There’s a bunch of humorous lines in this book that made me laugh, and some gems about life. I also enjoyed the fact that the story didn’t focus on Becca’s love life, but more on having self-discoveries about meddling with other people’s lives, and learning what real love is.
It was a really good sequel to the series. I think it can be read as a stand alone. If you like a quick read and solve a mystery, then go read this book! #
