Wicked Review: Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

Published: April 15, 2014
Publisher: Atria Books
Acquired: Digital copy

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.

Colleen Hoover is just one of those writers who never fails to write such beautiful characters. Her characters felt so real to me, you know. I just...I love her, okay? Let's leave it at that.

Tate Collins fell for Miles Archer, the unassuming young pilot who lives right across from her brother's apartment. It's a recurring theme in her books that the men have walls. Like, Attack on Titan kind of walls and it's up to the heroines to climb over the wall or ruin the wall with their bare hands.

I felt the sexual tension between the two of them and man, that was HOT! As in smoking HOT!

Don't ask about my past.
Never expect for a future

Miles' POV was written lyrically. Like a poem. At first, I thought something was utterly wrong with my copy of the book but apparently his POV was really written that way. It's not that I didn't like it. I guess I'm not really comfortable with seeing that overlapping with the conventional paragraph style which is how Tate's POV is written.

Oh, Miles. All I felt was pain. He's the kind of person who gives his all. Who would love freely and unconditionally. Not that it's not a good thing. It is a good thing to be with someone who would go through hell with you because he or she loves you and he or she would do anything to protect you.

It's just that, that kind of love is the hardest kind of love. It's the kind of love that will leave you broken, really broken when that time comes. It's the kind of love with a lot of questions and the only thing you could do is let that pain consume you along with a bottle of really good liquor. That's what Miles did. He loves Rachel. She was everything to him. He did all he could just so she could make her happy. And then that fatal accident happened and then the rest was history for him till Tate came along.

Tate, on the other hand, is stupid. She was stupid enough to let her guard down and to let herself get hurt. But then again, no one really gets it right. EVER. She knew the outcome. She knew she'd get hurt in the long run and she went along with it anyways.

Oh, love~ You are one son of a b*tch and I love you for it because without you, I wouldn't be reading an amazing book like this one.

She loves music. LOVE music. Namely The Avett Brothers, Lumineers, Pink, Eminem. She is addicted to Diet Pepsi and could tell you in a taste-test which restaurant it came from. She gets stoked whenever she gets a message from Goodreads saying she has a new friend request. She wrote the Slammed Trilogy (Slammed, Point of Retreat and This Girl), Hopeless, Losing Hope, Finding Cindrella and Ugly Love.
