    1. 2 stars Well this has been pretty strange So far, I really enjoyed most of the short stories in this series, but I have been disappointed by this one This is very like to be a traditional it isn t you, it s me case I didn t get the whole Pretty Ugly concept and I felt no connection to the characters I will however continue the series as I enjoyed most of the shorts so far and I guess that not every single book of a series can be a hit.

    2. Dominic is a celebrity photographer, he s pretty good at his job, and renowned for it But he feels that he s not much of a looker himself, and seems to be a depressed from photographing goodlooking men, and feeling a bit jaded by the whole dating thing.He does however manage to hook up with new young singer Johnny Palomino cheesy stage name much , and he s hoping for But is Johnny just using him as a stepladder to fame He certainly seems to know just how to play it.Then the next morning, Domini [...]

    3. This story confuses me Maybe it s the writing or maybe I just don t get the idea All I know is that there is this photographer, Dominic, who feels he lacks of beauty but he appreaciates one and he seems to always prefer beauty for his men Until he meets Chance the oh, so wonderfully hot chocolatier, the owner of Sweets to the Sweet who practically tells him that he is shallow for doing so And then the next day, Dominic looks hot himself It just give me the eh reaction when I finish Not to mentio [...]

    4. All the authors in the Petit Morts series have their distinctively style, and that of Jordan Castillo Price is to be biting and yes, considering we are talking of sweets, the pun is very much intended She has a little horror touch, nothing overwhelming, or less like an aftertaste, something that is lingering on the palate after you finish to read one of her novella.Here we have Dominic, forty something interior design photographer, that, mostly due to his work, is used to judge everyone from th [...]

    5. I did really enjoy this one, but it was initially confusing as it sort of led you down a different love interest path The ending was nice and you feel like there was a connection made, even for such a short story time frame.

    8. Review This was another delight from Jordan Castillo Price in the series For me, it had less of the tension and shock effect of others of her shorts, but the treat in this one was the feeling of emotional reveal, of both characters and storyline.Review for Brief Encounters Reviews briefencountersreviews 201The strapline for JCP Books is Beautiful, Mysterious, Bizarre , and Pretty Ugly pretty much met all those for me The gradual introduction of Dominic and the fascinating cast at the Cypress Man [...]

    9. Not much of a romance, but a well written story all the sameWarning This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS Rating 7 10PROS Price is a great writer, able to portray the physical and emotional essence of a scene with just a few paragraphs The depiction of Nashville and its inhabitants struck me as simultaneously flattering and truthful, and the descriptions of photography are detailed The story is obviously either based on personal experience or well researched Despite the st [...]

    10. 4.2 StarsYou know, I ve had a conversation with someone who said their wife was the most beautiful woman in the world and since she wasn t there for me to independently verify this as such, I just chalked it up to the old adage love is blind and otherwise similarly hud this old guy.But what if it s that s not it at all What if what you see when you look at that special someone is not how the rest of the world sees them What if those things everyone else finds fault with beauty, weight, etc just [...]

    11. Dominic Mann is a socialite photographer who is quite worried about beauty Or about his own lack of it So when he goes to a grand opening at Cypress Mansion it is handsome Johnny Palomino the man who catches his eye But the next morning Dominic finds something has changed, when a gorgeous man looks back at him from his bathroom mirror Is he suddenly different Or has his image of himself changed Maybe it is all a matter of perception, that s why Dominic does not find Johnny attractive any , and i [...]

    12. 3.5 stars This was a vast improvement over the previous book, Spanish Fly Guy I m still a little creeped out by Chance He s doing something to those chocolates and it s uncomfortable to think about Here though he decided to give Dominic a little Shallow Hal treatment, with a twist Dominic thinks he s ugly, so Chance made him beautiful for a day, to encourage him to look beyond what s on the outside Which is a strange way to go about doing that, but hey, it worked I also liked that the first guy [...]

    13. I really liked the first set of Petit Morts , so I m not surprised to be enjoying this next one The little bits we have with Chance, the chocolatier, only open him up a little to inquiring minds, but he seems to be rather grouchy about something I know we ll get his full story sooner or later.The unusual events of this story center around magic that is both a little disturbing and heartwarming I really didn t catch onto what might be happening till very close to the end, then I had to go back an [...]

    14. I decided to start the year of right by reading the second installment of the Petit Mort series In book six we follow Dominic Mann a photographic that can see the beauty in his work but in himself he just sees the ugly In turn his relationships seem to go poorly as well When he meets our favorite Chocolatier, Chance, at a party he s photographing, he is challenged to consider if he really sees what s inside and is not taken by shiny outsides as well Then he wakes up the next morning and he isn t [...]

    15. The premise behind this series is pretty cute Chance is some sort of magical man being and he has a chocolate confectionery called Sweets for the Sweet and seems to be some sort of mystical matchmaker.Dominic Mann is a photographer that is attracted to beauty When he meets our friendly chocolatier at an event, Chance challenges him to look beyond appearances, to the deeper beauty within When Dominic wakes up, he discovers an interesting surprise This was a pretty good story, but I have to admit, [...]

    16. This book left me genuinely uncertain and a bit befuddled It s been my experience that JCP rarely disappoints, but I found this petit morts addition frankly odd I thought I had a good idea of what was happening in the beginning Shallow photographer Dominic always beds stars to make up for his lack of looks, until the mysterious Chance rolls along and changes things But then the story careened into strange territory The love interest didn t appear until midway through, and then his character was [...]

    17. I have been an ugly duck all my life, so I could really relate to poor Dominic, and I was also very fascinated by the way he realized Butch was literally than he seemed I like this serious because, as the chocolatier and puppet master that links all the story, the elusive Chance, it s a series about taking and giving a chance, a second chance very often All the stories are like tableaus that come alive when we open the book It might be frustrating, because you can never get enough of the story, [...]

    18. This was a strange story, but I liked reading about Dominic s insecurities since I ve got plenty of my own Although the story concluded on a sweet note chocolate pun intended , I wanted concrete details about what had happened to Dominic, and I wanted him to be able to confront Chance one time This was the first I ve read in this series, though, so I m guessing we never actually get concrete details about how the chocolate changes things Oh, well.

    19. This story has an atmosphere that reminded me of Julio Cort zar s stories it makes you squirm, it s uncomfortable, but you just can t stop reading and admiring the imagination This is a story about self image, perceptions and beauty, but, of course, things aren t that simple And, that is exactly the point I like this sinister Chance too.

    20. Never warmed up to Dominic or felt that he was fleshed out in any meaningful or surprising ways, and I m uninterested by photography, so unfortunately, a lot of the details weren t engaging to me The romance was sweet and the story gained momentum after the two finally met, but it took a while to get there.

    21. Not an awful lot to say about this one A beauty is in the eye of the beholder sort of story It was a bit extra appealing to me, since it is set in my home town of Nashville, but it didn t really have much Nashville ness to it aside from a few mentions of the city s flooding a few years ago.

    22. I thought this story had a lot of potential that it didn t live up to Chance the chocolatier appears, but the whole concept of proving beauty isn t everything by making Dominic beautiful, really went no where in the end The end seemed abrupt, as well.

    23. Chance is up to his meddling again, making poor Dominic feel like he s lost his mind all while teaching him a valuable lesson about outward appearances I just wish we saw of the shower scene, I felt a bit shortchanged

    24. This one was just okay for me My one real complaint is that there are a lot of characters introduced in the beginning and you don t really get a feel for who the love interest is going to be In a short story I like to know what s going on right away.

    25. I really liked the ending, but the first 75% were a bit slow Artsy read.
