It’s a Fugly Life by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff Review

Hello, dear readers!

Just finished reading a fun book called “It’s a Fugly Life.” You can check out my review below, along with all the relevant information about the book, should you decided to give it a read. Enjoyed this book a lot, so I suggest you check it out! 🙂

It's a Fugly Life (Fugly, #2)It’s a Fugly Life by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

3.5 stars

This was a fun and quick read by an author I really like. Though it wasn’t as captivating for me as her other books, I did enjoy the fun and romance.

This book is a continuation of Fugly and concludes the story of Lily Snow and her (ex) man Maxwell Cole. Lily has screwed up her relationship with Max and is trying to move on with hot Italian actor Patricio. But something seems off and she’s reluctant to accept his proposal…then enters Max, coming as a strong force back into her life and begging for her forgiveness.

So the question is: who will she choose? Max or Patricio?

Add in quirky supporting characters and Lily’s internal dialogue of acceptance versus the old ugly voices, and you’ve got yourself a fun and touching afternoon read. 🙂

Fugly, book #2

by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

Released October 11, 2016

From New York Times Bestseller Mimi Jean Pamfiloff, comes a new standalone Contemporary Romance.

HE’S PERFECT FOR HER IN EVERY WAY, EXCEPT FOR ONE SMALL ISSUE. HE’S TOO LATE.

My name is Lily Snow. And I was once the kind of ugly that turned heads and made people stare. The worst part was how I let it ruin my life and destroy my relationship with the love of my life: Maxwell Cole, one of the sexiest, wealthiest, enigmatic men on the planet. All because I felt ugly and certainly not good enough for a man’s love.
But not anymore.

One car wreck, three reconstructive surgeries, and some unexpected money have changed my life.

I’ve started my own company, I’ve finally learned to like myself—not love, but like (hey, it’s a journey)—and I’ve met a wonderful new man who’s helped me put Max in the past where he belongs.

There’s only one problem: after six long months, Maxwell Cole is back, asking for the one thing I can’t give him. And he’s not taking no for an answer.

NOTE: This is a continuation of the story FUGLY, but is a standalone.

Excerpt

No, no, no. What did he just f***ing say? I stared at the ass-faced reporter blocking my way to the church. A sadistic smirk stretched across his lips while his crew filmed my reaction. They hoped I’d cry for the entire world on my wedding day, didn’t they?

Maybe I would.

“Tell us, Miss Snow, how does it feel?” He urged the cameraman closer and shoved the microphone an inch from my face. “How does it feel knowing your fiancé cheated on you last night?”

The bastard cheated on me? The night before our wedding? I tried to blink away my tears, but his words felt like a red-hot poker through my collapsing heart. After everything that had happened, every tear shed, every moment of struggle, and the promises made, I couldn’t believe it had all led to this: emotional annihilation.

What did you expect, Lily? Princes don’t fall for frogs. Not in real life. He wanted a beautiful life, a perfect life. He wanted a beautiful wife and beautiful babies. I couldn’t give him those things.

I dropped my bouquet, smoothed down the front of my white dress, and lifted my chin. “It feels like shit.” I turned away from the church, ignoring the roar of the press and the clicking of cameras, leaving behind my last shred of belief in happy-ever-afters.

Those don’t exist. They never did.

FUGLY, Book #1

A USA Today Bestselling Contemporary Romance from Author Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

UGLY IS IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER…

My name is Lily Snow. I am twenty-five years old, and despite being born with an unattractive face, I have never doubted who I am: smart, driven, and beautiful on the inside.
Until I met Maxwell Cole.
He’s handsome, excessively wealthy, and the owner of Cole Cosmetics. It’s been my dream to work for this man for as long as I can remember. The good news is he wants to hire me. The bad news is he wants me for all the wrong reasons. Ugly reasons.
In exchange, he’s offered me my dreams on a silver platter. The job. The title. A beautiful future. But this man is as messed up and ugly as they come on the inside. I’m not sure anyone can help him, and he just might take my heart down with him.

Here’s the synopsis:

 

WHAT WOULD YOU CHOOSE: LOVE OR DUTY? As the Torrian Alliance continues its age-old mission of hunting down Star-children, King Gregorio Derry reluctantly agrees to send his only son, William, to planet Earth on a mission to bring honor back to the Royal Family name. The target: Sydney, a young teenage girl, unaware of her alien heritage. When an unforeseen accident delays the assassination, William begins to realize a connection forming with Sydney and struggles to follow through with his orders. With the fear of Civil War imminent back home, William must make the ultimate choice between his irrevocable duty and love, sacrificing everything he believes. But as a hidden menace emerges to secure a vested interest, and impossible odds begin to mount against them, William and Sydney wonder if a connection between two Star-Crossed lovers is enough to save them from destruction.
