Overview

LaToya Jenkins is the quintessential woman: smart, successful, grounded and determined. She only has one problem socially - she's overweight. As the "big one" of her girlfriends, she often faces rejection from the men of their social circle because of her size and/or her dark skin. And due to a painful past relationship, she gives up on love completely until, she takes on Mitchell "Mitch" O'Keefe as a new client.

The Irish born architect needs a professional cleaning service to help him literrally clean up his life after a nasty divorce, but he winds up finding a true friend in LaToya, the owner of It's An Honor Cleaning Service.

While LaToya is handicapped emotionally by her baggage, Mitch thinks she's the strongest woman he's ever seen and a breath of fresh air in his hectic life. His only goal is to prove to her that his interest in her is more than lust sparked by curiosity.

Read the story of two beautiful people in totally opposite ways who help each other see that beauty is not skin deep but soul deep in the first book of Latrivia S. Nelson's Lonely Heart Series, The Ugly Girlfriend.

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
