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…

Each book in the Hartigans series is STANDALONE:
* Butterface
* Muffin Top

Butterface is book one in the brand new series, The Hartigans, by Avery Flynn. I’ve been so excited about this book and it completely did not let me down. It is fun, sweet, and sexy and the characters stole my heart. I hadn’t expected that little tie in to The Charmer of The Harbor City series so th ...more

This was a pretty fun and easy read. There wasn't a ton of angst thrown in so the tone of the book was kept pretty light. There were a few times that the whole "She's a butterface" thing got a little too immature for me, mostly when it came to Ford's co-workers but ...more

Butterface by Avery Flynn

Fantastic contemporary romance. Slightly humorous with heartfelt tugs of lasting love after disappointment, betrayal, righteous anger, attraction, and family caused embarrassment.
A fast read that you won’t want to put down.

Alternating viewpoints between Gina and Ford.

I li ...more

Butterface is a laugh-out-loud funny and sweet romantic comedy that gets the truth about love, and looks, right. Main character Gina Luca practices being honest with herself on the daily. She has a big nose, she has her dream job, and she has brothers ...more

By Helena September 10, 2018


It's fresh and hilarious and everything I adore in a romance. The hero is super swoony, and adorably awkward, and ridiculously hot and the heroine is unconventional and just amazing. I can't wait for the next book in this series! Do yourself a favour and one click ...more

(Cross-posted review)

I didn't read the blurb before purchasing (yes, I know) because I really want to read the sequel and I prefer to start series at the beginning. If I HAD read the blurb, I wouldn't have bought this book - even though the premise is great! - because the hero is a police officer, a ...more

Butterface by Avery Flynn is a sweet, adorable, and charming read that tackles the aspects of love,beauty and new beginnings. Flynn introduces her readers to Gina Luca, a wedding planner who loves her job but has insecurities about her be ...more

Because this is not a makeover story, and Cinderella is only a fairy tale…

Well, I am not sure where to start with Butterface. At first, I was like, where is she going with this story? Then, as everything progressed, I was like, holy shit, I'm thrilled that she went there. But then I think to myself ...more

This was quite a cute read.
I didn't enjoy the beginning as much but then it started to get better.
I loved the characters.
I will go on to read the other books in this series.

By Lindsay February 13, 2019

An enjoyable light romance between a wedding planner with a criminal family and beauty-related self-esteem issues and a straight-laced police detective from an overbearing family of firemen. There's not a lot to say about this other than that, except that the sort of bullying that the main character ...more

By Julie June 10, 2020

The workflow was slow so I grabbed this one, was a funny fast read and a hot romance as the subtitle suggested, however I don’t understand the American obsession with getting married as the happy ending and I am from the Middle East!!!

By Sharon January 26, 2020

Here are some of my thoughts:
• I was actually very skeptical to read this because of reviews I’ve read that made me worry that Ford would be an asshole and make Gina feel bad for being ugly. Ford wasn’t an asshole, in my opinion, and Gina was perfectly capable of standing up for herself, so she wasn ...more

Captivated from the very first page. I know my review isn't going to do this book justice because it's truly beyond words.

There are a couple of things that are bound to draw me in when I am browsing books. One, a cute cover something that Butterface has covered and who I’m blaming for my epic search for a cute pink dress. Two, a plain Jane story, which Butterface also has covered. Because of this I had no cho ...more

Avery Flynn is an author whose name I have heard on many occasions, with quite a few of my friends being a fan of her work. Despite the number of times I’ve heard the name, it wasn’t until I heard about Butterface that I decided to give one of her books a read.

The moment I found out about Butterface ...more

3.5-4 stars

This was a light, funny read with real issues underpinning. One of my US friends explained to me that the title referred to 'but her face' which isn't really a thing in the UK. I loved how this issue was handled in the book and although Ford, the hero didn't always handle it perfectly, he ...more

4.5 Stars for Butterface (audiobook) by Avery Flynn read by Brian Pallino and Savannah Peachwood. This is such a fun story. Just what I need right now. I particularly enjoyed the home remodel bits. It’s fun listening to kitchen renovation while I’m remodeling one. ...more

This review MAY contain spoilers. Read at your own risk.

This is a story with a moral at its heart. As a book lover, it is one that I can definitely relate to - don't judge a book by its cover.

I am really loving the Hartigan family! Prior to reading this, I read Muffin Top, the second book in The Ha ...more

I loved escaping into this story which had me laughing out loud, it is a brilliant, fun and hot read with some tear jerker moments, too.

This is a lovely story as both main characters have loving families and different reasons for their personal insecurities. Ford Hartigan has always felt like the od ...more

By Nicole August 10, 2018

I really enjoyed this :) Not the typical romance with the perfect characters. Something a little different in that the female MC, Gina Luca was not pretty/gorgeous/perfect. I loved that Avery Flynn went in this direction because let's face it, not everyone is supermodel perfect. So here's a romance ...more

By Catarina December 10, 2018

Most of the books I read the heroines are usually breathtaking, most of the times unaware of how beautiful they look, which is fine. I don't particularly care about the h's looks anyway. But it's extremely refreshing to read one book where the heroine is a just a normal woman, with flaws, insecuriti ...more

Butterface was sweet, funny, and deeper than I thought it would be. There was a little bit of suspense, and a lot of hotness! Flynn hit the mark with this one! ...more
