Publisher's Summary

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....

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

What did you like best about Nine Uses for an Ex-Boyfriend? What did you like least?

I love the narration by Colleen.<br/>The story drags a bit and could have been a lot better.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I liked the ending, I was happy with the way it all ended up

Any additional comments?

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!<br/>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.

Any slower this book would go backwards.

Would you try another book written by Sarra Manning or narrated by Colleen Prendergast?

Based on this book probably not.

What could Sarra Manning have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

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.

A slow start but persevere.

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!

Pretty crappy

I didn't hate this but the main character is bloody pathetic, made me cringe.

Storyline becomes unrealistic too.

Don't buy this!

Oh my god. The longest most boring story about a breakup ever, featuring the whiniest most annoying doormat of a main character with no self respect whatsoever. Jeeez! Grow a pair! I wish I'd read the other reviews before I suffered through this snoozefest.

Truly awful

Nothing happened. It just dragged on and on, nothing interesting that I could find. The characters made no sense at all and there was no actual development or insight into any characters except the main two. There was the potential for a story somewhere, but it just got buried under long, long ramblings about emotions and countless mundane every day life activities. At the end, I didn't care at all if they stayed together or not, because they were both as whiny and stupid as each other. Narrator also had a habit of adding upward inflections in the middle of every sentence, which practically hypnotised me into falling asleep, combined with the lack of plot.
