BUTTERFACE by Avery Flynn

BUTTERFACE by Avery Flynn

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…

Eileen's Thoughts

-I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this wonderful, snarky, and funny book, Butterface by Avery Flynn, the first book in her Hartigan series. This book had me on an emotional journey, reminding me of my own experiences of not fitting in nor being accepted while growing up.

 

Gina Luca knows she is far from beautiful with her oversize nose and bug-like eyes, despite having a killer body. Being put on a wedding Kiss Cam with one of the hottest guys there brings back all those old humiliations.

 

The kiss cam guy is Ford, the only Hartigan male not become a firefighter, but a cop for the city of Waterbury. Gina believes that Ford is out of her league despite the heart stopping kiss they shared.

 

When Gina finds the body of her missing grandfather, Ford stays with Gina to “keep her safe,” but he is actually checking out her mob-connected brothers. The more time they spend together the more it feels like a real relationship.

 

Ford not only helps Gina with the renovation work on her house but takes her to dinner with his folks and six siblings. Gina is smart and questions Ford’s true reasons for hanging around because every time she turns around, she is once again reminded of who her lack of beauty. What’s going to happen when Ford figures out he loves Gina and can’t live without her? Will Gina be able to accept his apology and love?

 

I loved how Gina accepted, if not loved, who she is and did not want to change her looks; even with plastic surgery. There was so much more to Ford than his good looks. He was a driven, rule following guy who loved his family and put up with a lot of ribbing and practical jokes. Ford also had a sense of fairness and was compassionate, especially toward Gina.

 

Butterface was filled with sarcasm, laughs, snark, and even some sexy scenes that made me wish it never ended. Ms. Flynn wrote a wonderful and hysterical story which drew me in as well as into the lives of her characters, making me forget the world around me. I had trouble putting this book down, turning page after page, not letting go until I turned the last page, still wanting more and really looking forward to the next book in this series. I highly recommend this book to other readers.

About Avery Flynn

Avery Flynn

USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling romance author Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip.

She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staffs knew her by name.

Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their ahem other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.
