Ben Wilder has had a website in his name for three years.  Three years in which all of his ex girlfriends are able to log in to and rant about him.   It was started by Eden Rutherford, his first love whom he broke up with twice.  Not only broke up with twice, but devastated twice.   Eden is just glad that Ben doesn't live in their hometown anymore because of course she still loves him.  Unsure of what to do with the latest message from a seemingly harmful ex, Eden is a bit afraid for Ben's safety.   Should she tell him about the vicious woman leaving harmful messages or just chalk it up to another heart broken by Ben Wilder?

Ben Wilder, former town bad boy and ne'r do well, has to moved back to his home town in order to take care of his cantankerous grandfather.   It is the least he can do since his grandfather is the only person who loved Ben when he was growing up…besides Eden Rutherford whom he loved with his whole heart is there.  He proved his love by moving away and has regretted his decision daily.  Running in to her again makes his heart ache because he still cares, but when he finds out about the website she started, he is unsure if even his love for her is strong enough to get through the humiliation.

I liked The Ex-Girlfriends' Club very much.  Many times I would have loved to have been able to do what Eden did with setting up the benwildersucks.com website.  The premise of that entire thing made me giggle and the plot for this book was creative to say the least.   Ben's feelings of hurt and devastation brought a tear to my eye, but Eden's sadness made me cry outright.  I wanted their relationship to work and thank God for happy endings.   Rhonda Nelson is an author I want to continue to watch for and read.
