Breaking up is hard to do
Juggling the ticklish challenges of ending relationships for others while starting a new relationship, Danielle Dani Myers takes on life with zest and cheeky charm in Johanna Edwards' chick lit frolic, Your Big Break. Breakup Hell has five stages nervous breakdown, sour grapes, rebounding, backsliding and letting go and Dani has reason to know those stages well. She was the victim of a slam breakup herself and now she's a pro at conducting breakups her employer, Your Big Break Inc., specializes in handling the messy details of breaking up for a fee. Dani is good at her job, until meeting Brady tempts her to violate the agency's Rule #5: do not get personally involved. That rule is further tested when Dani learns that the married Big Jackass she's hired to help with a breakup is her own dad.
