#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.
There is a fine line between 'doormat' and genuine love and acceptance. Tate could easily come across as 'doormat'. She doesn’t. It’s like she has a sixth sense. Maybe it’s because she's a nurse and sees more into pain and human nature that others, maybe it’s that the pull she feels toward Miles is just too strong. I dunno; but for whatever reason, it works.
Miles is very much the emotionally broken man. You get that right off. What happens within the pages of Ugly Love is a strong adolescent love that is decimated. We travel back and forth in time in the POV of a young Miles to the present POV of Tate. It’s sweet as well as heartbreaking.
Miles' POV is read with such trepidation, obliviously something catastrophic happens. I had perpetual goose bumps while reading his past POV. I wasn't sure what was gonna jump out of the closet. Tate though, she just broke my heart. She loves, she needs, she sees so much in Miles. Ah, the longing.
It’s a gut-wrenching read of a journey to self forgiveness. Beautifully written.
