#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.
Tate and Miles didn't think much of each other when they first met, but after a while, their attraction towards each other becomes undeniable. Since they didn't want feelings to get in the way, they came up with the perfect arrangement - just sex, no strings attached. As time passed though, things get more complicated and feelings get in the way.
I really loved reading Ugly Love! It was heart-clenching and enjoyable, and I read it in one sitting! I actually stayed up until 3:30AM because I just couldn't put it down! The pacing was great, there were a lot of amazing quotes, and the ending was just perfect! I think this may be one of the best New Adult books that I have read yet.
This one is definitely better than Maybe Someday, and I already liked Maybe Someday! Clearly, Colleen Hoover has written yet another masterpiece, and I expect nothing less from her. Despite my high expectations, Colleen Hoover still hasn't let me down, which is why she's one of my favorite authors!
“Love isn't always pretty. Sometimes you spend all your time hoping it'll eventually be something different. Something better. Then, before you know it, you're back to square one, and you lost your heart somewhere along the way.”
“God gives us the ugliness so we don’t take the beautiful things in life for granted.”
