Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover, Review by Dee

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

Wow I totally didn't expect to have Coleen rip my heart out like that. I am going to be honest, I was bracing myself. I knew something was coming. I knew it was going to be bad. But. Not. That. Bad. I cried. And cried. And cried. And not just A few tears, I cried ugly mascara running down your face tears. So I took a break, put it down and had to walk away. I mean that is what you're supposed to do when you ugly cry at work.. right? Until I saw the cover. Then the cover made sense, then it all made sense and I cried. even. harder. Didn't think it was possible, totally was. So I have this understanding over Miles and his space and rules. Miles' feelings. Miles' stance on love. It surely didn't make the heartbreak that you feel reading this hurt any less, but you understand it. Your heart cries for it. Your heart breaks for it. But you get it. And let me tell you , you will feel heart break. You will feel despair and sadness and depression. However, you will also feel happiness. You will feel hope. You will fall in love with Miles, just like Tate does. And honestly, you will fall in love with Cap too. I mean who wouldn't!?! Do you see what I'm saying here. Colleen takes you on a journey. She digs down deep into your soul with a story that she knew would rip your heart out. A story she knew every single woman, and man too, could relate to. A love so deep that you can't even fathom losing it. Taking that love and writing about the loss of it. Then taking that same love and turning it around to help it heal, help you move on. Helping you find happiness, helping you live. I can't tell you how good this book is. I don't feel like my words can convey how good it is, or how much I liked it. Honestly, I don't think my words could also tell you how hard it broke my heart either. If a book can pull that much emotion out of me, it's a damn good read. Now, I'm not saying that it's all hearts and unicorns, because it's not. Yes, Miles has a revelation as to what he wants...and this is the only thing I would change. I wish Tate would have made him earn her back a little more. She deserved more. After how he treated her, I wanted him to work harder for her. Now that what he moved on from wasn't hard, it was, but for her, she deserved more. 

I give this book 4.5 hearts
