    1 thought on “The Ugly Girlfriend

    1. I came across this book by accident, and I was glad I did. This book struck several personal cords with me. 1) It was about a black woman, 2) she was not your typical size 6; she was actually a size 14, and 3) she always felt like she did not fit in with her circle of friends. Because I was able to relate to LaToya on a personal level I was able to thoroughly enjoy the book.This was an interracial romance, and I was glad the author didn’t take the typical path of black woman meets white man fa [...]

    2. Although I enjoyed the book, I found it too short and the concluding chapters a bit lacking in substance. It felt rushed. Also, if the author does not have an editor then please get one as it would make your work so much more enjoyable and if she does have an editor then perhaps it may be time for a change.

    3. I still really hate to give a book a 2 rating but I just can't bring this one up to a 3. The storyline is a good one, but it was so rushed. It was really hard at times to determine who was talking and there were editing issues. The way the h's friends treated her at times was appalling and while I realize some women can be this way I think most of us who are not model thin and beautiful don't surround ourselves with friends who judge us harshly for that. I honestly think if the story and charact [...]

    4. This is a lovely interracial romance novella about an African American woman who is full figured and mostly ignored by men because of it. The heroine is a size 14 which quite frankly is NOT full figured unless you are only 5 feet tall. I am a size 14 and at 5'6" I am quite slim. Society's idea of what full figured is is skewed. Anyway, this novella reflects how shallow society has become in choosing partners for love. A handsome and successful white male truly falls in love with the heroine. Her [...]

    5. I liked this book, but the pace was what earned it 3 stars. Latoya has some self-esteem issues and meets a client that is going thru a nasty divorce. End of synopsis if you dont want me to spoil the rest.So either way Latoya and Mitch relationship moved too fast. There wasnt enough time for the reader to develope those feelings that they had felt. It was like the author said "they fell in love after a few weeks, now lets move ahead". I dont know about you but as a reader I like to live those mom [...]

    6. I really liked this book. I read it on the kindle. Unlike a lot of the other books it did not start with the main characters jumping straight into bed with one another. Is started off slow and gradually picked up like a lot of relationships do. However the characters seemed to jump into the love part of the relationship rather fast and a lot of the story seemed unbelievable. The parts of the story that I really was fond of was how lead female really handled herself in the face of much adversity [...]

    7. Hmmm I am struggling to find the right words for this book. I didn't hate it but I also didn't really love it. I was extremely excited because the character had some meat on her bones so I was like whoot whoot let me check it out (If you have read any of my reviews you know I am not a fan of the extremely thin, flat stomach, perfect body characters) however I just didn't feel the connection with the characters. I think I was expecting something a little different when I went into the book but th [...]

    8. I've lived with Spina Bifida for 27 years noe and it has definately made dating super difficult because I get judged on my outward appearance rather than my inside. This was such a positive short love story that gave me even more hope thwt my very own Mitch is out there eaiting for me eith open and accepting arms. Bravo to Latrivia Nelson!

    9. Lovely interracial readThis book is about a black woman who was not your typical size, she is full figured and always felt like she did not fit in within her circle of friends and was forever getting rejected by men. Despite this though she was as bitter as you would think. She was still strong and for the most part confident and independent. LaToya Jenkins is presented to Mitchell O'Keefe by one of her clients Byron, LaToya owns a professional cleaning service and Mitch needs someone to organis [...]

    10. 4.5 stars. I Truly enjoy this book. Loved, loved, Latoya and Mitch, what a cute couple they made. It was love, life and triumph of working with each other. How two people with conversating and enjoying each others company can be truly soulmates at the end. When Mitch did his speech, how emotional he spoked, I cried what a beautiful heart he has and the love he had toward his son and Latoya. Her Girlfriend, oh, I was happy when she left with her mouth open when she heard Mitch speech. I my mind I [...]

    11. 1st read by Nelson, she has given me a now series to look for in the future. I love LaToya. She is a black woman with her own, but she does have concerns and a few issues of her own. She does not place the blame for her life or lack of it on others. Her friend or so-called friend need to take a few lessons. I am very happy to see that Mitch could see beyond the facade.

    12. This was a very quick read. It was interesting and charming. If you are looking for a book with a plus size heroine this one will fit the bill. She owns her own business and he is Irish. Sweet. I like LN so if you are a fan of hers, you will enjoy this. I would lend for a weekned read. TTFN.

    13. sweet story, but i would have preferred for it to be a little longer, with a meatier plot and more conflict. otherwise i was still able to breeze right through this. thing is, the story isn't that memorable. atthe same time, however, it was still well written, as per usual for ms. nelson

    14. It is no mystery that I am a big fan of Latrivia Nelson's work, but I think that she really outdid herself with this one. I can see why this book is in the top ten of multicultural books on . It made me cry.

    15. I loved this story. I could relate to the plus size of LaToya. I loved the honesty of the story too. Well worth a read.

    16. Not very excitingt terrible. There was a lack of character depth and plot development. We were told continuously about her issue with her weight, but there was no real feeling. It was just mentioned a lot but not developed on, I was not able to feel her hurt throughout the storye only reason I knew she had an issue with it, was because she said so.

    17. Nice read This was quick little read that certainly passed the time delightfully. I loved the simple plot yet complex - due to the many inhibitions life presents. I recommend this little story to all hopeless romantics like me. Enjoy.

    18. Well, I liked it. The ride was not entirely unpleasant but it was not the best either. Good thing though, I could not put down the book. It's easy to read. It's short. The grammar was correct even if I found some phrasings odd. But I am a foreigner so I probably can't judge that well. I was in a sudden need for a good modern romance fix and with some modifications it could have been memorable. The premises was good but the author shy'd away from it being a good book who asked interesting questio [...]

    19. I have been reading romances for most of my life at this point. Even having taken some lengthy hiatuses from the genre, I always end up coming back to it. Going from the classic 80s purple prose style, through a long infatuation with regency era novels and then into a(n often unfortunate) bout with contemporaries, one key factor always persisted. That was, that the heroines of every single novel I read, were always always white. I think it's honestly a tragedy that I, being dark skinned and broa [...]

    20. **Possible Spoilers** I enjoyed this little book, I thought it was cute and sweet, and of course anything dealing with an Irishman, accent to boot, is sure to catch my attention in the best of ways! I felt I could almost understand what our heroine, LaToya was dealing with, but I will never understand, how she got the title "the ugly girlfriend" and why the hell she didn't put a stop to it when it started. It really made me wonder what type of "friends" she had in the first place, because all my [...]

    21. Meet LaToya Jenkins, a successful, smart Africa –American woman who owns her own cleaning service. She is known in her circle of friends as the “big one”, at a size 14. Men usually go for her smaller girlfriends, so when handsome Irish born architect Mitchell “Mitch” O’Keefe hires her to be his cleaning lady, the last thing LaToya expects is he is interested in her. Mitch has just gone thru a nasty divorce and caring for his young son has proven to be a lot so he hires cleaning servi [...]

    22. It was a quick read, but sweet in its way. I can identify with LaToya in a lot of ways. Having been small all my life, I'm am now overweight due to menopause and aging. And I can see how putting up walls with people can protect you from getting hurt. Basically rejecting them before they can reject you. Angela was the worst kinds of friends. Basically telling LaToya that Mitch, a white man, is only experimenting with her and that eventually she will be alone again when he has enough and leaves he [...]

    23. This book was just okay to me. There were quite a few typos but nothing that was too major (waken instead of waking, accept instead of except there were a couple more but these were memorable to me). The story was nice, it just needed to be fleshed out a little more In one review someone said the whole book was a lead-up to the sex scene and had too much explicit sex, Id really like to know what book they were reading seeing as the H/h dont even have sex until way late in the story (around 73%) [...]

    24. I' m really torn about a review for this book. It definitely wasn't one of the best interracial romance I've read but it had a ok plot. I wanted to like the book more than I actually did. I thought the characters needed more fleshing out. The relationship between the main characters is never fully developed. We are told that they become really good friends and then lovers but never really shone how their relationship progresses. I was thinking where is the progression to the romance? And by the [...]

    25. The author was trying to make herself feel better about her body. It read like a petty teenager's made-up drama with her "friends" about her "boyfriend" who she says is from Ireland and that's why they don't see him around, to which they reply "that, sure, she has an Irish boyfriend and they are getting straight A's." (which, trust me, with the level of trash talk and spelling mistakes in this books they are not. No one is this book was getting B's, much less straight A's, even the author who, I [...]

    26. This is a very difficult novel to review. A more accurate rating would be somewhere between 2 1/2 to 3 stars.It's a cute story, but it's so short that there isn't sufficient time to truly develop the characters or the plot. Of necessity, the hero and heroine fell in love too quickly. Also, many of the situations they encountered didn't ring true because there simply wasn't time to delve in to the various issues. This book would have been much better had it been a hundred pages longer. (Hey, ther [...]

    27. Reviewed by Whitney@Shooting Stars ReviewsThe Ugly Girlfriend begins with LaToya being out with her girlfriends at a bar one night. She actually thinks a guy is going to ask her out, or at least to dance but becomes embarrassed when the hot guy just says he needs her cleaning service. After that LaToya decides to just be nothing but perfessional with Mitch. But after spending some time with him, and realizing he is going through a hard time she feels something for him. However, she doesn't want [...]

    28. Not the best interracial romance I've read. Solid plot, but the characters definitely need more fleshing out. I never got the feeling that Latoya and Mitch loved one another. One minute she's sticking to her guns about not wanting to be anyone's number 2, then she's cooking for him and his son, as one previous reviewer said, playing happy families. Where's the romance? Where is the progression? Where is the obstacle that was overcome? And who surrounds themselves with friends like Angela and Dea [...]
