It’s true. I’m not what most people would call “pretty” and, well, high school was rough. Fast forward ten years and life is good…
Until a bunch of jerks think it’s hilarious to put the “butterface” (AKA me) on a wedding Kiss Cam with the hottest guy ever—and that old humiliation hits hard.
I recognize him immediately. The sexiest cop in Waterbury and totally out of my league.
But then he kisses me. And we totally forget the room, the crowd, everything.
Then he tells everyone we’ve been dating for months.
Soon everything starts to feel too real, from adorable fights over “necessary” tools to fix my broken porch to surviving a free-for-all dinner with his six siblings to picking up where our last kiss left off.
But there’s something he’s not telling me about why he’s really hanging around, and I’m pretty sure it has to do with my mob-connected brothers.
Because this is not a make-over story, and Cinderella is only a fairy tale…

No, not for me. Not even with it being a free e-book, I’m not interested.25
Poorly written and really no plot.15
Didn’t make it past the sample chapters. The whole concept was demeaning and unrealistic. I would feel sad if I thought people really thought this way about themselves, or talked about others like this. Very disturbing.15
A pretty good read45
This was one the best books I’ve ever read. Love it55
Sexy, sweet, sometimes heartbreaking story of a handsome cop falling for the ugly duckling daughter of a renowned crime family he’s assigned to get info on. Enjoyed the story, loved the audiobook narrators take on the characters & look forward to reading more from this first time for me author.45
Gina has always known she’s not a great beauty. If the mirror didn’t tell her plenty of people have seen fit to make comments about her appearance. So when she meets Ford and he shows interest, it’s too good for her to believe it’s real. But she wants to. Ford is a by the rules kind of guy—which makes him a good cop. When he first sees Gina, something about her makes him take notice. When she takes off after a very awkward situation, he feels badly. He gets another opportunity to get to know her and grabs it. Too bad that it’s because of work and even worse, if Gina finds out how that’s how they really started, he may lose her forever. This was a really funny but also heart hurting story. Gina and Ford are wonderful characters and the cast of supporting characters are hysterical.55
It was an okay story.35
I fell in love with Gina and Ford in the first chapter. Not because they are perfect, but because they are realistically imperfect. Just the right blend of emotions to keep you hooked, this book has it all. Don’t put it on your want to read list, read it. You’ll be glad you did.55
