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…

Great story and characters. Needs some editing to be perfect.
Good story - clean up grammatical issues in the second half and it would be perfect
Don’t Judge a Book By It’s Cover
Gina has always known she’s not a great beauty. If the mirror didn’t tell her plenty of people have seen fit to make comments about her appearance. So when she meets Ford and he shows interest, it’s too good for her to believe it’s real. But she wants to.
Ford is a by the rules kind of guy—which makes him a good cop. When he first sees Gina, something about her makes him take notice. When she takes off after a very awkward situation, he feels badly. He gets another opportunity to get to know her and grabs it. Too bad that it’s because of work and even worse, if Gina finds out how that’s how they really started, he may lose her forever.
This was a really funny but also heart hurting story. Gina and Ford are wonderful characters and the cast of supporting characters are hysterical.
It was an okay story.
