Book Review | Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover | prettylittlewriter

'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.'

This one was a heartbreaker. 

My second Colleen Hoover novel, and I felt all the feels. 

Tate is a brilliant character, strong-willed, brave and empathetic, I was so desperate to have everything work out for her, her love for Miles from the start was the stuff of dreams.

Miles. Poor Miles. I knew early on what must have happened for him to shut himself off from love forever, which made it all the more painful to read. He was the perfect son, perfect boyfriend, and at such a young age in his relationship with Rachel, Colleen has written a brilliant love interest in him. 

The relationship between Tate and Miles was saw raw, so real and so ugly, that you desperately wanted them to have a happy ending.

I also loved how it was split between the two narrators, Tate's POV and Miles' POV, both past and present.

I can't really discuss much more about this story without spoiling it, but I will say that if you love romance novels with a hell of a lot of heartache and drama, then you will love this.

Oh, and the smut was spot-on!

5/5 stars
