Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover


When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.

Never ask about the past.
Don’t expect a future.

They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.

Hearts get infiltrated.
Promises get broken.
Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly.

“Whatever he did to Rachel, at least he loves her enough to regret it.”

And, this is how we are introduced to Tate and Miles. Tate is moving in to her brother’s apartment and Miles is drunk as a skunk in the hallway. The stage is set that Miles is emotionally unavailable, but do you think that stops the inevitable from happening?

“Don’t ask about my past,” he says firmly. “And never expect a future.”

While the ending might be quite predictable, it is the journey that makes Ugly Love special. The writing style and the flow is FLAWLESS! The POV was a little different than I was used to as Tate was told in present day and Miles from six years ago until later in the book. It made for an interesting read because we got an extensive background as to why Miles was in his current state of mind.

“Love isn’t always pretty, Tate. Sometimes you spend all your time hoping it’ll eventually be something different. Something better. Then, before you know it, you’re back to square one, and you lost your heart somewhere along the way.”

This is the one passage that stood out to me from the entire book. It was one of those “I had to put my kindle down and reflect on my own life” passages. The love story between Miles and Tate is real and somewhat raw. And, this was one of those rare occasions that I could relate more to the male character than the female. Colleen Hoover is the #1 author of this genre for a reason, and Ugly Love is the perfect reason why!!!

DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of Ugly Love is exchange for an honest review.
