Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover
Reviewed 17 September 2015
5 / 5 Stars!
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.
This book is exactly what I needed to read. It got a big message through my head that I needed to understand in real life, and I’m so grateful for reading it at the time that I did.
Another huge thank you to Taylor for getting me to crack this one open. It was absolutely beautifully written and is the first of many books I’ll be reading by Colleen Hoover.
This book is basically a parallel to some stuff that I’m going through in my life right now. It’s not easy and there’s no one to talk to about it who really understands it from a personal perspective, because no one else has gone through my experience but me.
This book, however, is basically my situation exactly. And I needed to read about someone else experiencing it and going through it and how they handled it in order to understand and help me through it. Parts of it weren’t exact, as it’s not as though she was writing an autobiography on me – but enough of it was so close to exact that there were points where I had to put the book down and just sob because I can understand what Tate was feeling at that exact moment.
This was a tough one for me to get through because of how similar it was to my real life, but I needed it, and it helped immensely with my healing process and coming out of this experience a stronger person.
I absolutely LOVE this book and am so glad that I was able to read it at a time when I really needed it. That’s the best way to read, isn’t it?
This is one of those books that I’ll be recommending to people for a long long time. Yes.
