#1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover returns with a new heart-wrenching love story.
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.
I adore Colleen Hoover. She rocks the New Adult genre and her books always bring me to tears. Of course, I was simultaneously excited and scared about Ugly Love.
Incredible Chemistry and Friends with Benefits – really? And what about the heart?
In Ugly Love, we get the POV of both Tate and Miles, which was somehow necessary for this story. Tate moves in with her brother and when she meets Miles the sparks fly immenadietaly. Just Miles is in a really and place and doesn’t want to commit to feelings or a relationship. Just, they can’t deny their chemistry and attraction so they slip into a dangerous relationship. However, Tate slowly falls for Miles and knows that this won#t ever end well for her, but she can’t help – she can’t stay away from him.
It’s excruciating to see Tate suffer. They are so good together, yet Miles pushes and pushes and breaks Tate’s heart over and over again.
And before anyone goes and judges Tate – she knew what she was getting into, and she knew she was going to get hurt – but when love is involved you’d do whatever it takes. It was genuinely heartbreaking!
Master storytelling, with so much emotion!
Often with dual POV’s the authors don’t really capture each voice so distinctively that it’s easy to separate them both. But, here Colleen did an amazing job. Miles parts used short sentences not much flourished and it was easy to get a feeling for his character. Even more. we are always wondering what broke Miles, what damaged him so badly that he refused to acknowledge his feelings for Tate. We get to the bottom of this through flash back chapters, and even here the voice is clear, the writing style distinct!
