Book Review: ‘Ugly Love’ by Colleen Hoover


Release date: August 5, 2014


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.

5 of 5 stars

Colleen Hoover could write the phonebook and I would read it. I love her writing. It’s orginal, real and beautiful. This book was a little bit different than what she normally writes. In this one the hero was deeply flawed and unwilling to ever love again after getting his heart bashed in and scarred for life. I loved Miles though. Even though he was unwilling to feel anything, he still had a hard time staying away from Tate and you could see the effect she had on him. Oh I loved Tate. She was a strong character who although knew what she was getting herself into with Miles, wanted to stay with him and break down those walls he had up for years. A weaker person would have left him high and dry. She wanted to stay and try to be the one who changed him. Honestly, I was bawling a lot through this book. There is unbelievable tragedy and heartbreak throughout this book, and almost two weeks after reading it, I still can’t get it all out of my head. You wrote such a masterpiece, Colleen.


~Oh, my god. His mouth is so possessive.~

“Don’t let me do that again”

“You make it so hard to breathe”

“You save lives. That’s way more impressive”

“Don’t bite that again. I like seeing you smile”

~He should smile all the time. Forever. At me.~

“It’s not fun. This thing we’re doing”

“If I were capable of loving someone, it would be you”

~It’s the beautiful moments like these that make up for the ugly love.~
