Ugly Girl Ties the Knot (Ugly Girl Series #2)Ugly Girl Ties the Knot by Alice Wasser

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ah, shoot! I am sorry to leave this series behind. I loved that these were perfect people in love but rather real people with real problems that don’t easily resolve in a bundle of flowers and a ring.

The main character, Millie has a few extra pounds and self-esteem issues. Her main squeeze, Sam is a quadriplegic. He’s cute, but, can you see? Real issues right off the bat. Yet these two are engaged.

Jealousy is the worst part of this book. I hate reading romance stories just because of this irrational emotion. But with the lighter attitude of the series mixed with some heavy-duty issues, I think this is an almost impossible combination to pull off. But Ms. Alice Wasser does a great job of it! And the jealousy issue drops by the sideline.

This is an example of what I wish more authors would take on. Stop writing about perfect, skinny, beautiful people. They don’t represent the reader. Give us diversity and let us into lives that might be more interesting, if more challenging. Good job, Ms. Wasser! Um…any chance of another after the baby is born?
