5 Star Review: Ugly Love, by Colleen Hoover


Amazon * B&N * KOBO * iTunes


When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she doesn’t think it’s 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.

Ugly Love

Since I finished Maybe Someday, and Colleen Hoover started teasing this book – it seemed like absolute torture waiting for it’s release. So when I saw on Facebook – other Cohorts were getting their hands on early releases from B&N I went online and requested a reserved one – and the hour it took for them to email me back? PURE TORTURE! I drove the 30 minutes to the closest B&N in another state mind you – and got this beautifully bound book Saturday morning and didn’t leave until I was already 150 pages in…

Miles… Miles… Miles…

Where to even begin…. this book is a little different from her previous books – and in the best possible way. Tate and Miles have real heat, and you feel it bouncing off the pages – the passion between them is teasing and tortured – and beautifully written.

“Never ask about my past, and don’t expect a future.” – Miles

Tate and Miles aren’t exactly fast friends – but as these two get to know each other a little more their chemistry is evident. These two consenting adults embark on a sexual relationship completely void of any emotions – because that’s all Miles can offer. Tate is strong willed and trying to get through her Masters program in nursing – she doesn’t have time for a relationship – this relationship of convenience might just be what these two need…. but of course, the waters in these situations can easily be muddled…

Miles is hiding something…. Tate is desperate to finding more about him, chomping at the bit at any detail of his past. And as these two spend more and more time together things get complicated, confusing – and messy. Miles has to get over the past before he can ever think about a future, and Tate isn’t sure she can keep waiting for things to change….

Colleen Hoover writes these realistic stories methodically and this one? Lyrically…. as the chapters switch back and forth between narration – from Both Tate and Miles POV – the past is slowly illustrated and heartache ensues.

I thought early on – I won’t cry, I’m going to get through one Hoover book without shedding a tear – WRONG – SO wrong!


Your heart will break for Miles, your heart will break for Tate – and you will be as  hopeful as I was that the past doesn’t ruin a future for these two –
