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.

Ugly Love was a really good book. The plot was intriguing. The characters were full of emotions. I was sort of surprised at how much emotion Miles showed. He’s the type of guy that when he falls, he falls hard. I’ve never met a guy like that in real life. I have a feeling they’re few and far between. I really liked him though. Even when he acted like a butt. And he did. Acted like a butt that is. Several times.

Tate was amazing. I loved her determination when it came to being with Miles. I sort of think the synopsis is a bit misleading when it describes her. I think she acted just the opposite of how she’s described.

The sex in this book is pretty hot for Ms Hoover’s work. Her romance scenes are usually more tame. Almost adult mainstream. In Ugly Love though things gets really hot. Multiple times.

I’ve heard this book will most likely be made into a movie. I’m pretty sure I’ll be seeing it. Rumors are Nick Bateman may portray Miles. He even posted a picture of himself holding a copy of the book on Instagram. I’m still trying to decide if I like him as Miles.

If you’re a fan of Colleen Hoover, you’ll definitely want to grab a copy of this one.

About Colleen Hoover

Colleen Hoover’s love for writing began in 1985 when she was five years old. Her first story was titled “Mystery Bob” and was a huge hit with her mother, who was really good at faking interest.
Colleen continued to write short stories for friends and family until December of 2011, when she decided to write a long story she titled, “Slammed.” She self-published SLAMMED to Amazon in January, 2012 and it hit the NYT’s bestsellers list in May, 2012. She has since signed with Atria Books, a division of Simon & Schuster, and now has six NYT’s bestsellers. Colleen prefers to be called a writer, as the term “author” still terrifies her and makes this feel like a job with expectations. She doesn’t work well under pressure and hopes writing will always remain fun and exciting.

  2. I actually wasn’t crazy about this one, but I know I’m definitely in the minority. I just couldn’t get behind Tate and Miles’s messed up relationship. Still love Hoover, though!
