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.
I didn’t know what to expect when I started reading this book. I had heard a lot of talk about it around the internet, and the general consensus seemed to be that it was well liked. I don’t think anything could have prepared me for the rollercoaster that was this novel though.

First of all, Tate was a very likable protagonist. I thought she had a good personality and she made me laugh quite a few times.

Miles was an interesting co-protagonist. He was a very big mystery through most of the novel. That kept my attention, and I just had to finish the book to figure out why he was the way he was.

The way this book was written also kept it exciting. It switched back and forth from Tate’s point-of-view to Miles’s point-of-view.
Tate’s sections were in the present while Miles’s sections covered the past and slowly revealed how his character came to be. Learning about him slowly throughout the book made the story even stronger.

The story itself was also interesting to me. It was a cute romance book, but it was also deeper than that. Miles dealt with a lot of pain to get to this point. Suffering from abuse and a broken heart.
Then on the other hand, there was Tate. She seemed like she had a pretty decent life and Miles completely threw her off. I was rooting for them from the beginning.

Once I really got going with the book, I could not put it down for anything. I just had to get to the end and nothing else seemed as important. It has a way of really drawing you in and not letting go until you turn the last page.

I would be lying if I said I didn’t cry.
