Review: 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.

Kristine's Thoughts:


Yet again Hoover has written a book that leaves me teary eyed and with that awful lump in  my throat that I hate so much. Three hours after I finished the book I still had the lump. To say that this book is an emotional roller coaster is putting it mildly. It was hot, sexy, sad, gut wrenching, sweet, emotional and at times it made me want to scream. To steal from the title it was UGLY in the best kind of way.

I was glued to the pages...

I experienced every emotion under the sun...

I felt their pain...

I routed for Miles and Tate...

All of the above are things that prove that it was a damn good book. So good that I didn't even notice that my car radio was on my husbands not so good radio station because I was too busy thinking about the book.

Hoover has a way of capturing the emotions of the characters and penning them in a way that connects beautifully with the reader.

Fans of NA and fans of Colleen Hoover will love this book. I am going to leave it at that because I just don't have the words that will do it justice.

    1. This one is by far the steamiest of her books. If that's not your thing, her others are a little more mild. Let me know what you think when you get around to reading one. :)
