Publisher's Summary

Shannon Brycen believes she is the epitome of pitifully ugly. Kalen, Shannon's overly social sister, is determined to play matchmaker and find a special someone for her sister. After a disastrous date with one of Kalen's recent selections, Shannon decides to take her love life back into her own hands by joining the local lesbian cyber matchmaker.

Mid 30s, still single, housebroken but rabid. If you're looking for something different, then I'm your girl. Write me if you dare.... P. U. Maybe it wasn't the best idea to build her profile after consuming half a bottle of her favorite wine...or to use a picture of herself at the age of six - after she had cut her own hair - as her online profile photograph.

Hiding behind the online persona of Pitifully Ugly, Shannon finds the courage to meet new women and face the disaster called dating. As her charming personality surfaces, Shannon's search for the perfect match may be closer than she realizes.

Sooooo good

I’d already decided that Lori Prince and Robin Alexander were a match made in heaven based on all the other Audiobooks Lori has narrated for Robin. But if I’d ever had any doubts at all, listening to this audiobook would have wiped them entirely off the planet. This is one of Robin’s books that I haven’t gotten around to reading in print, so listening to this AB was my first experience with it. Boy, am I glad I waited, because listening to Lori’s enactment of some of the funnier scenes nearly had me peeing my pants. All of Robin’s books are funny, but some scenes in this one ascend to a new level of hilarity. I also really liked the premise and the love story that uniquely unfolds in this book. If you’re looking for an audiobook that will have you wiping away tears of laughter while also offering you a love story that’s sweet but a little off the beaten path, this one will make you very, very happy.

Hire Lori Prince again!

I really wish all of Robin Alexander’s books were narrated by Lori Prince because they’re both my faves & the absolute perfect combo. Robin truly writes the best rom-coms that make me cry laughing every single story. I’ve read all her books, love love love her.

Then Lori is someone who makes even the worst books bearable & brings the best ones to life bc she gives so much to all her performances. Makes me feel even more present within the stories being told when the narrator is that excellent. I think Temporary Girl is my fave out of Robin’s books that Lori has narrated but she did great job with this one too & I think I actually enjoyed it more than when I simply read the Kindle version.

I would also LOVE to hear her narrate both of the Cat Island & White Oak series. Pleeeeease bring at least one of those series to Audible with Lori as the narrator!!

I LOVE YOU, ROBIN ALEXANDER!

This book put a big smile on my face. I love sharing my days with Robin Alexander and Lori Prince! As usual, both ladies killed it on this audiobook. The story was cute, had so many funny parts, had sex scenes, had a dog who watched Grease and enjoyed chicken on a stick, and there was even a scene when Shannon was attacked by a duck/goose and that was extra funny to me since I was attacked by a duck once also. Such a great listen!

Not the best from Robin

The story is quite good and very funny. The biggest problem i had with this is the narration, which i dont think i've said with Lori Prince before. The main character had a pretty loud voice at times which made me turn down the volume, and then there were characters that had voices so low i couldn't actually hear them so i had to turn it back up.
Like the first sentence says its not my favourite from Robin, but by no means is it a bad book and i dont regret buying it.

Don’t drive and listen!

Like all Robin Alexander books, Pitifully Ugly was absolutely hysterical. I am very glad that I did not use this for my normal commute book as there would’ve been some serious damage to my car. I was laughing so hard I was crying and that would’ve made for an unsafe driving situation. I highly recommend this story. Lori Prince did a wonderful job capturing the voices and bringing the story to life.

Hilarious!

What a wonderful story! The banter between the sisters was hilarious and how Lori Prince manages to read some of the scenes is amazing! Another book with strong women who come to terms with who they are and why they are. Some of the scenes will have you laughing hysterically!!!
