In her novella, Jayelle Hughes maintains the same unique style of writing that she introduced in her novel Men Don't Matter, but I feel 5eX contains much more humor and a lot more vengeance. Though the story is still female-focused, we see a lot of insight into five specific men.

These men are the ex-boyfriends of the narrator, Michelle, that, in her words, "pumped and dumped" her. Instead of punishing herself for their downfalls, she decides to take revenge on each of the men. The plan that she

Michelle grew up believing in the dream as a little girl: that one day a prince charming would come in and sweep her off of her feet. But now, at 29 and still single, Michelle is teeter tottering on the thin line between anger and mental instability after being dogged by 5 men in succession.

After winning a cool $1 million in the lottery, Michelle has decided that t
