    2.5 starsI didn t like this very much If you have read Fugly which i absolutely adored you may be as surprised as me to find out there s actually a continuation to Max s and Lily s story Although Fugly ended really well without a cliffy expectation of a second book, i was interested to read Sadly, I could have done without this book It was an UTTER MESS Lily s thoughts were chaotic and her life so messy Seriously she meets and decides to marry someone else in her 6 months away from Max How true can your love be as you kept describing it to be That was my first problem Then the guy she chose to marry oh my gosh, can he be any immature He was uninterestingly annoying And the dramasoh my god this was like a train wreck i knew was going to happen by 15% of the book But because of my love of this author and i really did want to know what happens, i continued through this mess VERY DISAPPOINTED Overall, a meh just an ok read for me

    Leave it to Mimi Jean Pamfiloff to take some heartrending moments and find humor in being human Lily is in a love hate relationship with herself where she has settled on a tremulous ceasefire The love of her life destroyed her fragile self acceptance and her belief in happy ever afters which led to drastic changes in both Lily and her life, including a hot Italian actor she just might be in love with Lily has opened her own boutique, picking up the shattered pieces of her life and desperately trying to move forward, in spite of the potholes and detours, mostly of her own internal making.The emotional patch job she did on herself is about to be shredded to bits as Max, in all of his gorgeous glory comes back into her life, a man almost on his knees begging her to take him back, but Lily isn t a sure thing any and Max is going to have to do than stand there looking gorgeous, offering the best sex of her life if he is to have any chance of winning her back Come on, the guy is used to having his looks and charm open doors and other things for him, so when Lily said no to even becoming his business partner, let alone his life partner, let s just say, let the games begin It s a Fugly Life is so much than another witty, humorous and hot look at romance and all of its trials and tribulations Hidden beneath all the quirky situations, humor, self flagellation and testosterone is a tale of self acceptance and strength, change and true, if flawed love Yes, really and I loved it In true Mimi style, Ms Pamfiloff makes human failings and hang ups come to life with humor and heart I absolutely love Lily, she is real, she is a mish mash of humanity at its most vulnerable who puts on her big girl panties and struggles to learn to be who she is, what she is and take what she wants of course, keeping those panties on gets a little tough and admitting what she wants isn t so easy either Face it, It s a Fugly Life but everyone has a fascinating story to share I received an ARC edition from Mimi Jean Pamfiloff in exchange for my honest reviewSeries Fugly Book 2Publisher Mimi Boutique October 11, 2016 Publication Date October 11, 2016Genre Romantic ComedyAvailable from US UK Australia PaperbackiTunes B N KoboFor Reviews More

    3.5 4 s It was a happy surprise to get another story for Max and Lily especially since everything seemed to end well in the first book However, from the very beginning of this book, you know that they didn t continue that way Apparently, Max had a hard time with how things played out and hasn t been in contact with Lily for six months Lily took that as he wanted nothing to do with her and went on with her life surprisingly I was a little shocked that she moved on so quickly Of course, when Max shows back up, he does it with a BIG bang and shakes Lily to her core She doesn t know what to do or what to think and Max literally seduces her to get her to make a decision Unfortunately, no one really listens to her and all kinds of unnecessary drama pops up I do have to say that I was a little disappointed in Maxin ways than one But Lily has to be true to herself as always and she s finally able to decide what she wants and hold on to that There s drama even down to the ending but thank goodness for Callahan And that ending Priceless

    It s a Fugly Life picks up six months after Lily and Max s breakup and we find our heroine in quite a different place.Lily has tried to move on she has a new man in her life and a new business venture and she s convinced herself she is happy But she isn t Really, she s settling and trying so hard to fit into her new skin and she s a lost little puppy The Lily we meet here is but a shell of her former self, and at times it was hard to watch as she hit that self destruct button over and over again.More than anything, this book is about self acceptance and discovering who you are and what you aspire to achieve in life.Lily thinks she has it all figured out but she s cowering behind an imaginary wall and failing to face reality Until Max makes a reappearance and she is forced to confront her demons head on Max is Lily s past and her Italian stallion actor lover is her future Or so she tries to tell herself over and over again It was downright painful to watch Lily push Max away but it was all part of her learning curve I felt her uncertainty and her self doubt and I hated how this strong, intelligent woman made stupid mistake after stupid mistake The pivotal scene toward the end was fantastic because it showed how far Lily had traveled how she had won the battle with her crippling self doubt to emerge as someone who knew she was worthy of love and devotion Patricio is an ass There, I ve said it How on earth Lily could ve fallen for him is beyond me I saw nothing of the man she described at the outset, and I was scratching my head wondering how a woman like Lily could be so blinkered.Max was AMAZING in this book Yes, he s still a jerk and all his hot headed fights with Patricio were totally immature, but he never stopped loving Lily and he was always there for her When I found out everything he had done for her, I swooned big style The writing was great again, and even though it wasn t quite as funny as the first book it still had plenty of humorous moments.In summary, this was another great read from Mimi Jean and I d highly recommend this series to readers who enjoy well written, emotionally complex romance with heart.I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book All views expressed are my own.

    ARC REVIEW Lily once was very ugly, she knew it, there was no denying it But when she fell in love with Max and Max with her everything was great until her Fugly voice chimed in and let her to believe some very bad things things that had her recklessly driving and ended with her in a accident so bad she needed facial reconstructive surgery Now Lily is wonderfully normal looking and it s been six months since since she left Chicago, since she s seen Max Lily s not one to dwell on her past mistakes.much so she is moving on she s dating again, heck she already almost engaged Max walked back into Lily s life six months after almost completely destroying her world and wants to pick up where they left off asking for forgiveness and with a huge grand gesture But then there s Patricio, Italy s most famous actor Lily loves both men, in different ways but she needs to figure out can she trust her heart to Max again or settle with a man who she can learn to love than a friend I m not a lover a love triangles, but because this is Mimi Jean Pamfiloff I could not not read it I liked living with the illusion that Max and Lily lived happily ever after after Fugly, but nooooooo My anxieties about this book were unnecessary Lily pretty much handled the whole thing like I would Tell them both to shut up and get out.Overall, this was a book about wresting with your inner demons, the one voice in your head that is full of self hatred, mistrust, anxiety, and makes you doubt everything The voice that always tells you that you re not good enough, you are doing it wrong, and no one will ever love you, why would they love you Mimi has aptly named it the fugly voice Lily even though she no longer has the face that would have little children crying monster she still has that fugly voice that makes her doubt everything Lily s journey in this book is learning that you can t trust that voice, you can t get rid of it but you can learn to ignore it and that sometimes you need to take that risk and trust your heart I loved this book, it s one of those books that will stick with you forever Mimi manages to make an emotional story infused with a quirky sense of humor and full of sexy hunks.

    Such an inspiring, and enthralling read This look at Lily and Max s story is very real and brings you into a world that makes you think about that fugly voice in your head that makes you wonder at your own worth Lily has overcome some of her past but is still a work in progress aren t we all watching her come to terms with the fact that she is not done growing was very interesting and makes me realize that as old as I am their is still growing that need to do as well and I need to reconcile my fugly voice and deal with it as well A modern day Beauty and the Beast with a true to life twist.

    As the follow up to Fugly, this book was pretty underwhelming At the start of the story, I like the farcical nature of it I laughed out loud a few times But unfortunately the scenes just became disappointing or even somehow unsatisfying as if the author either wasn t taking it seriously or didn t have anything left to say.
