Review: Fugly by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

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.


4.5 Star Review by Jen Skewes

When I red the synopsis for this book I had to read it.

Lily is smart, and beautiful on the inside and has the perfect body.  But her body and her face do not match.   Her whole life she has been criticized for being ugly.  But she never let that stop her.  Lily is about to interview for her dream job working for Cole Cosmetics.  She has the perfect resume and is more than qualified for the job.  But the minute Maxwell Cole, the owner, sees her, he turns her down. 

Having nothing to lose she confronts him as to why he dismissed her so quickly.  But despite her efforts she still left his office without her dream job.  But when Mr. Cole lands on her doorstep making her a new offer, she has to decide if she really wants to work for a man who can't even look at her.  But then she realizes that he needs her in a way she never expected.  And she also sees that maybe Mr. Cole is not the pompous arrogant ass that she thought he was.  Ok maybe that is stretching it a little too far.  He is sexy, rich, powerful and very arrogant.  But this is her dream job.  This will open up so many doors for her.  So when she tells him what it will take for her to take the job he quickly accepts her offer.  And now she is left wondering what the hell she just did.  And all she knows is that working for Mr. Cole will end up hurting her some how.  But will it all be worth it in the end?

What I loved about this book and these characters is the banter between the two of them.  It was fun, witty, sarcastic and at times abrasive.  But I loved it.  You could see deep down that these two wanted each other.  And that maybe they didn’t dislike each other as much as one would think.    Max Cole may have been arrogant and a pompous ass but I couldn’t help but love the guy.  He had his own ugly issues that he was trying to deal with and overcome.  But he needed Lily’s help to do that.  He felt a connection with her and probably shared more with her than any other woman he has been with.  They were just perfect together despite their differences.  While Lily was beautiful on the inside and considered ugly on the outside, Max was the opposite.  He is hot and sexy and every women’s dream.  But he was very ugly on the inside.  But with the help of this beautiful woman he hoped to get past the ugliness.    

I loved Lily’s character.  She came off as bitchy some times but that is one of the reason’s why I loved her.  She did not take shit from anyone.  Despite being made fun of growing up she had this confidence about her that I loved and admired.  And on top of that she had the most amazing and supportive family.  Even if at times they were just a tad bit overwhelming.  But they loved her.

Fugly is one of those books that I could not put down from the moment I started reading it.  These two characters had me from the start.  I wanted them to be together.  I wanted Mac to be the man I knew he was and be able to get past hiss issues and see how much he was falling in love with her.    And This was a fun and sexy read with a bit of drama added to the mix.
