Friend Jack's tough love and self-help book Break Up Like a Boss Bitch force dumped Tiff to tidy herself up and get back on the dating horse, leading to disastrous consequences.

Further details

Tiff is being dumped for the second time in months. This time though it's not her (now ex) boyfriend doing the dumping, but her break-up buddy, Jack, whose own life is suffering under Tiff's demands.

It's been months since Tiff's boyfriend found celebrity, promptly dumped her and she found herself living back with her mum, working her old Saturday job in a run-down shopping centre while sharing custody of the Labrador the couple rescued together in happier times. But, Tiff is having serious trouble emerging from the vegetative recluse stage.

Torn between the demands of his upcoming nuptials to his husband-to-be, Jack gives Tiff some tough love and pushy self-help book Break Up Like a Boss Bitch, forcing a very reluctant Tiff to attempt to tidy herself up and get back on the dating horse, leading to disastrous consequences.
