    1. I was able to read this book in one night. For the most part most of the poems were pretty good. I have to say I didn’t really like the title. I like to see when women take the high road. I was happy to hear that the author was done with him especially before 9-11. I read it through in one night just to see how long it too for her to leave him for good. Still wonder though…Shona RobinsonAAMBC Reviewer

    2. Okay, so first of all the title of this poetry collection really grabbed me. I might have been happily married for a long time now, but I can still remember the anger and the heartbreak of previous relationship breakups. Who doesn't want to vent when their heart has been mangled? Power to Tayo Oredein for doing it so beautifully!The poems are laid out in chronological order, starting with the first date, initial hiccups, officially becoming girlfriend/boyfriendYou get it, through their turbulent [...]

    3. Before bedtime last night, I opened Tayo Oridein's book, intending to read a few poems, since I was very tired. By page 30 or so, I knew I was in for its entirety. I read it straight through! The title made me laugh, but she exquisitely drew me into her joy and heartache. (It took me a while to realize that she had parsed some of her emotions into rhyme!) With honesty and clarity, she allowed me to witness her journey from interest, to apprehension, to joy, to questioning, to distress, to suffer [...]

    4. Having had my share of jerkish and stupid exes, I found it easy to connect with this book. The title of this book really sums up the boyfriend well, as the author manages to illustrate well through her poetry about the hypocrisy of her ex, and the frustration she felt at it - damn, I'd feel frustrated too, if I had a boyfriend who hung around with his exes but freaked out if I was hanging out with guy friends.I enjoyed some of her poems more than others, but overall it's a solid collection, and [...]

    5. I received a copy of this through a giveaway by the author on Http://librarything in return for my honest review of the book.This book is a collection of poems that are in sequence with the heartbreak the writer was going through. My favorite is on page 41. I can relate and anyone who's ever gone through that build up ( cloud nine) the beginning of a relationship and the fall when you realize it's finality. Even though it hasn't ended your gut already knows it will. I felt like I read the author [...]

    6. I received a copy of this book from LibraryThing in exchange for an honest review. This was a very cool collection of poems. I really liked the concept of chronological poems summarizing the relationship from first date to finding meaning in the breakup. I also enjoyed the variations of the poems; while many covered the same issues or events, they varied in tone, audience, rhyme scheme, and structure. And many poems included very clever puns and played on words, which I thoroughly enjoy.The onl [...]

    7. I enjoyed maybe 10% of this book. Quite a few of the poems feel forced. Forced in the same way a teenager will force rhymes when doing a homework assignment that requires itThere were a handful of really good poems, funny even. During those you could certainly tell the author was expressing a very extreme emotion. Is does make me wonder if perhaps the author went back to dates during the writing process and created poems to fill in the gaps. This book would have been better as a short memoir. Sh [...]

    8. I received this book through a giveaway from librarything. My review of this book is I really enjoyed it. I found the poems very inspiring. I love that she was straight with how she felt. It made me feel inspired to write poetry again. I can understand where she came from. Love this book!!!!
