Patrycja's Review: Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover


Title: Ugly Love
Series: Standalone
Author: Colleen Hoover
Release Date: August 5, 2014
Rating: 5 stars

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

Ugly Love is exactly what you can expect from the title. It’s not flawless romance about flawless couple who quickly gets their happily ever after, not at all. Ugly Love is gritty and real and beautiful in completely astonishing way. It was the 'ugly' that made this novel 'beautiful' in my eyes. It was the struggle, the fight that characters had to live through that was so shredding and emotional, yet it was also what made this novel incredible.

“God gives us the ugliness so we don’t take the beautiful things in life for granted.”

Tate and Miles’ story is much darker and more mature than Colleen’s previous books; it’s sexier, edgier. And is definitely one of my favorite by her.

Ugly Love is story about Tate, twenty two year old nurse in trainig that moves into her brother’s apartment in San Franciso to live with him till she finds a place for herself.

That’s where she met Miles, her brother’s friend from work. Miles is incredibly sexy, mysterious pilot from the apartment next door and someone who makes Tate tingle all over. The sexual chemistry between them was off the charts.

Tate and Miles agreed to have no strings sex. Miles told Tate from the very beginning that there won’t be love between them or anything more than causual hook up. He doesn’t want love or relationship, nothing will change that. He warned her about that.

“Don’t ask about my past,” he says firmly. “And never expect a future.”

Tate agreed to his rules, even though she knew she would be having a hard time separating sex from love. She hoped deep down, that maybe Miles will come around and give them a chance at happily ever after. That he will let her in, and share his secrets. That he will grow to love her.

Ugly Love is told from dual point of view, where Tate’s chapters focus on the present, while chapters told from Miles point of view are telling us what had happened to him few years before he met Tate.

"Ugly love becomes you.
Consumes you.
Makes you hate it all.
Makes you realize that all the beautiful parts aren’t even worth it. Without the beautiful, you’ll never risk feeling this.
You’ll never risk feeling the ugly.
So you give it up. You give it all up. You never want love again, no matter what kind it is, because no type of love will ever be worth living through the ugly love again."

Colleen Hoover and her books are always out of this universe experience. Every one of them is unique and moving in it’s own way. They all have got something that make readers feel; not only the fluffy kind of feelings but the bad and ugly too. Every book she writes is a wonderful roller coaster of real emotions and I appriciated all of them. And while Ugly Love is definitely different from other Hoover’s work, it’s just as hooking, just as amazing and heartshattering as the rest. From the incredibly likeable, but broken characters to surprising storyline, Ugly Love was wonderful read.
