Description

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 hottest 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....

Fun book

The female narrator was very excellent. Intonation was spot on. He was good as well. First book I have experienced with male and female narration. Perfectly done. Loved the story. Which of us perfect? Great characters. I am getting the second book, as well.

All the feels

This was my first book by this author. I loved the story and the characters. It was heartwarming. I liked the fact that it told a story that so many people can relate too but often don’t hear. The narrators did an amazing job. I can’t wait for the next book in the series. ❤️

Avery has really out done herself.

Sexy, hilarious....this one got me right in the feels. There's a little bit of Gina in each and everone of us.

Just plain fun!

This was fantastic! I didn't see the more serious side of it until I was neck deep in it. Butterface opens up your mind and makes you think of things you said in passing and perhaps not meant. It's just deeper than I expected and I loved it! Don't let that fool you though... it was still a riot! It totally tugged at my heart strings and made me think more about how we view ourselves.

Fantastic dual narration with Brian Pallino and Savannah Peachwood. Peachwood has this fun and light voice and you could feel her words and how impactful some statements were. Pallino had this deep tenor that I loved!

Brian Pallino and Savannah Peachwood --- NAILED IT

Listened for Fun (Audible)
Overall Rating: 3.75
Character Rating: 4.00
Story Rating: 3.50

Audio Rating: 4.50 (not part of the overall rating)

Quick Thoughts: I think the "ugly" comments went on a little to long but outside of that I really enjoyed Butterface. Gina was fantastic and her friends were a hoot. Ford was a hunky rule follower that made me smile and I loved his family. I am going to have to go read Felicia's book :) Overall this was fun and I am really looking forward to the rest of The Hartigans!

Audio Thoughts: Narrated by Brian Pallino and Savannah Peachwood ---- NAILED IT! Seriously it was so good in audio form and I highly recommend it!

Oh Childhood Memories

I sure can whole heartedly identified with this story. I was one of those kids that at by the age of 12-13 I stood 5'8" & weighted 114lbs oh and let's not forget the I'm 1/2 Italian with the famine version of a "Jimmy Durante" nose. Yes, I got razzed about my nose from 6th grade all the away thru high school. I had a few close friends that took the time to get to know me, this shy, who am I kidding, when you talk about the wallflower. I was the wall. So yes, my dating life was nil to none. Until I was 18 and meet this guy while at work. All I can tell you is Holy Crap what a wonderful, loving, handsome man he was, he saw the flower and not the wall. We were married, and happy. I learned how to love him and myself at the same time and that's a gift I will have for the rest of my life. It's amazing how books can mirror life. This book is well worth a re-read. Thanks.

Repetitive

Ok, I get it, she's ugly. That point was made the first chapter so why harp on it through the ENTIRE book. Move on the the actual story already!!!! So not worth the credit.

Love is Blind

I enjoyed listening to this audiobook for the narrators Brian Pallino and Savannah Peachwood did a wonderful job. I would listen to another book that was narrated by either of them. Mr. Pallino and Ms. Peachwood are talented and were truly able to bring the characters in the story to life.

As for the story itself I found it had a strong and amusing start but then started to fizzle a bit in the third act. I felt that something was missing but just can't figure out what exactly. But that's my personal problem. While it was a cute story with a likable couple and some fun supporting characters it just didn't have any moments that inspired strong emotions from me. And to me the measure of a good book is one that has moments that stirs things up in me, be they bad or good.

As much as I wasn't exactly bold over by the story I am still interested in reading the other two books in the series. I'm adding Muffin Top and Tomboy on my list of must read.

I like a good book series, so even though...

I don’t usually listen to romances, I used a credit on this book. Forced myself to listen to the end, but I found so much of the childish behavior of the adults annoying. I know I will NEVER want to listen to this book again, so I will be returning it.

Great Listen..

I get tired of listening to, or reading books about heart stopping beautiful people, not everyone has the perfect nose, eyes , or lips. There is something that everyone struggles with on a daily basis. Something that we have to over come and just love ourselves. Sometimes the not so pretty girl/guy gets the beautiful/handsome guy/girl. I think that's why I enjoyed this book so much. There should be more books like this. It broke my heart to hear how she thought of herself but that's what happens to someone when they have been as hurt as the character in the book. Great Job Avery Flynn.

Cheesy But Enjoyable

This was an easy listen. It’s not particularly deep, but it was entertaining enough to get me through a long commute. The male narrator is over dramatic for the story; it’s a bit distracting and almost comical. The female narrator is fine. There are a number of descriptive sex scenes, so be mindful of listening at work or within earshot of kids. If you set your expectations and aren’t looking for anything too heavy, this certainly fits the bill. It’s an enjoyable story with a satisfying, albeit formulaic, ending.

Fell a bit flat

I loved the premise of this story - an unconventional heroine whose image of herself is challenged by the hero of the story. Of course, the hero has to be swoon-worthy, adorably awkward, and super hot. The story is, at times, fun, sweet and sexy.

While I enjoyed the story enough to continue reading until the end, it just didn't live up to the level of comedy and endearment that I expected. Comments on Gina's appearance started to grate on my nerves. And while it may not be realistic at all, I had hoped for Gina's character to face growth in her confidence quicker, or even for Ford to come clean with his secrets sooner.

I am still interested in checking out the other Hartigan stories.
