Goodreads’ Book Description:
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.
Colleen Hoover is my favorite author. I may have even told her she was my favorite person in the entire world at Book Bash, no big deal. She’s owned that title the minute I met Will and Layken and I don’t ever doubt that she will continue to be a favorite of mine.
I’ve been dying to read this book since the second I found out the title because that’s just how Colleen works in my head. I don’t even need to read a synopsis beforehand because I know I will undoubtedly love all the words she strings together in her books. (I might have even stalked my local Barnes & Noble shelves for days before the actual release day to get a copy for a friend and me, shhh.)
All that being said, I can’t say Ugly Love was my favorite read from Colleen.
Don’t get me wrong, I am 100% in love with Miles Archer. Maybe even 1000%. He is so freaking swoon worthy. His entire story hurt my heart, even if I didn’t end up crying my eyes out.
I liked that he had different traits of Will Cooper in him, as well as some Dean Holder characteristics, too. He was broody and mysterious –hello Dean—but he had a crazy beautiful heart and was poetic and perfect –god bless Will Cooper. This probably wasn’t intentional, but I’m happy that I could compare Miles to a couple of my past book boyfriends. ♥
I loved Tate, a LOT. I just didn’t like that she was so invested in Miles. I wanted her to be less like liquid and more her own person. But I did like that she was honest about her feelings at the same time. I’m hoping I’m making sense at this point.
The writing—the perfect writing—flowed so well for me. Colleen is incredibly talented; I can’t even begin to explain what her words do to me.
With her stories and unforgettable characters, the overall reading experience never fails to be a great freaking time.
Please don’t hesitate to one-click this read. You more than likely need Miles Archer in your life. #MilesHighClub
