Pat's Review: Butterface

Butterface by Avery Flynn
Publisher: Entangled: Amara (July 30, 2018)
Series: The Hartigans, 1
Genre: Contemporary Romance / Rom-Com

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…

Pat's Review:

Gina Luca is a wedding planner, very familiar with Bridezillas. Today’s wedding between a nurse and a cop is fueled by flowing tequila and is quickly turning into a nightmare. The videographer is suddenly doing Kiss Cam posts and Gina is in his sights. Gina has always felt “not pretty,” her body is ok, but a big nose and bulgy eyes earned her the nickname of Butterface. Standing next to her is a tall dark handsome detective, Ford Hartigan. They are reluctantly captured on the Kiss Cam and then a cruel practical joke throws them together again in a compromising situation that her brothers witness.

Ford is a detective on the organized crime task force. He thinks of himself as a nerd and a stickler for following rules. He has a large family, and all the men in the family are firefighters. Ford gets a lot of hassle for being a cop. When his boss finds out he has contact with Gina, and her connection to the Esposito crime family Ford is assigned to strengthen that connection. Gina reports to the police that she has found a skeleton in the attic of the house she inherited from her grandfather, which she is doing renovations on. Perfect timing! Ford has his in.

What takes them both by surprise is their sizzling attraction to each other. She is wary; how can this perfect man want her? He worries about keeping the fact that he is on assignment secret, even though that is not the reason he is keeping close.

Laughter, families, and romance make this another great story by Avery Flynn.
