UGLY IS IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER...
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.

This is a hard one. I’ve read the other reviews and can empathize with those who had trouble visualizing a woman with perfect hair, ideal body type, matching brains, and still thought to be unattractive. But, I found myself remembering the insecurities of a younger me. (God, what I wouldn’t give to have just those insecurities.) We are our most hardest critics.
So, the author embellished the reactions of others to the heroine’s physical appearance? Don’t we do that ourselves? That’s the point.
The love story exposes how we, as women, let our insecurities ruin and run our lives. It perfectly illustrates how our self-doubts and personal uncertainties can stop the very truth that emotional attraction can enhance physical attraction to levels that go beyond lust. And, hinder our abilities to believe in the good of love and, inherently, our capability to be love.
This book is worth reading. Difficult for our visual reading to comprehended at first, but very much worth it. You have to understand the author’s position, and be open minded to her obvious message going into the book. If you can do that, you will find yourself caught in a love story so true and real that you will doubt the authenticity of other romance writers.
Just try to be as open minded as possible and read this one. Then, look in the mirror, find yourself, and tell your evil insecurities to get lost.
