Hope Delafield hasn't always had an easy life, and being a primary school teacher isn't exactly the job she dreamed of doing. At least she has Jack, the God of boyfriends. He's kind, has a killer smile, and a cool job. Hope has known that Jack was The One ever since their first kiss 13 years ago; they're still totally in love with each other. Totally. And then Hope catches Jack kissing her best friend....

Based on this book probably not.
Written a book with a story. As the narrator said "the end" I was still waiting for something to acutally happen. This entire "story" could have been told in a quarter of the time by removing irrelevant fluff.
My only complaint about this book was its very slow start. Hope and Jack have been together forever but things are not fantastic, at least for Jack, and Hope is totally knocked sideways when he moves out. She battles against this loss whilst coping with her primary school teaching chores, parents who believe the break is all her fault and Jack's inability to make up his mind. The only bright spot is her growing friendship with Wilson, who she used to hate. The book improves immensely as it develops and, as an ex- primary school teacher, I related with nostalgia to the parts about her class room experiences, particularly the Christmas Pageant!
"I loved it"
I really enjoyed the narration of the book as well as the length. I found there to be a lot of interesting twist and turns and the book caught my attention the whole time! it was a pleasure!
"Nine uses for an Ex-Boyfriend"
I love the narration by Colleen.
The story drags a bit and could have been a lot better.
I liked the ending, I was happy with the way it all ended up
Hope annoyed me in the book, it was very repetitive. It sounded fun with the title of the book, but there is no list of these 9 uses!
It kept me listening and I wanted to know what happened in the end. It did have some fun parts to the story and some very interesting characters.
