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.
This may just be my favorite Colleen Hoover book ever. I raced through this book because I loved it so much and then after I was done I immediately wanted to reread it. Miles and Tate’s chemistry is absolutely amazing, and I must say this is probably CoHo’s sexiest book besides Too Late, which is in it’s own category. Seriously though Miles and Tate together was so steamy but that’s not what made me love this book. It’s the way it’s written that I found incredible.
As with the majority of CoHo’s books Ugly Love is written in alternating point of views between Tate and Miles, except Miles’ POV takes place in the past. While Tate and Miles “relationship” develops we also learn about Miles’ past and it’s written kind of like poetry and it’s beautiful. I love Miles. He’s climbed his way to the top of my book boyfriends list and I felt for him so much in this book. Similarly, I also felt for Tate who wanted to know about the past that only we, the reader, were getting. It was heartbreaking.
Colleen did an amazing job with this novel. The plot was so perfectly woven together and tugged at my heartstrings the whole way through. I teared up, I laughed, and I was frustrated. I loved all the characters, including Tate’s overprotective older brother, Corbin, and Miles’ best-friend, Ian, who I wish we saw more of. My favorite character was definitely Cap though. His words of wisdom were always spot on and I had to make a note in my iPhone for all the great quotes in this novel.
If you haven’t read this book yet please do so immediately. You will not regret it. I promise!
