Book Review: Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover.


Sypnosis from GoodReads:

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.

My Review:

This book is beyond beautifully written. For a New Adult book I never expected this, but this book and storyline is wonderful. The characters are so realistic and relatable, as are the situations.
Tate is a wonderful character that I am sure a lot of girls can relate with. You give your heart and soul, you fight and you have so much hope in the ones you care for most. You don’t give up on them, and no matter how hard you try, you just can’t stop caring. You can’t stop them growing on you, and you can’t bring yourself to leave. I love that about Tate, she makes a beautiful character because of it. And someone who you can relate with.

As for Miles, his story broke my heart. I don’t think I could think or bear to go through what he did. It’s beyond heartwrenching, and I’m glad his story was written and his background was what it was, because it made the pain and the heartbreak all the more realistic. As well as the situation he fell into. But if there is something about Miles that I love, it’s that depsite everything he’s been through he comes through, even if it’s not a complete happy ending. It’s knowing he will deal with those demons and dark times, just not on his own anymore.

The way the story ends, it’s the quote that I love. And the message the book sends; “It’s the beautiful moments like these that make up for the ugly love.”
You can’t have the sun without the rain, but you have to meet those dark and ugly times. Because in the end those rays of happiness will shine through and make it worth it.

I could read this book time and time again!

My Rating:

***** 5/5 stars (I love this!)

Possibly one of the best books I’ve read in a very long time!
