*REVIEW* Colleen Hoover's UGLY LOVE




Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover
Genre: New Adult Contemporary
Publisher: Atria Books
Publication Date: August 5th, 2014

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.





And now for my review:
*Spoiler-Free* REVIEW: Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover
Publication Date: August 5th, 2014

*DISCLOSURE: ARC was provided in exchange for a fair and honest review



Review:
Since I first discovered Colleen Hoover with the release of Hopeless, she has quickly and unerringly captured a portion of my heart with her hauntingly beautiful and tragically, yet, wonderfully real stories of love, loss, and the journey back again. I never need to read the synopsis of her latest book, I simply pre-order. I take a leap of faith, diving straight into the endless depth of her words, and she has yet to let me drown.

Ugly Love is so unique from Colleen’s previous books, yet carries the kinship of stellar writing, (poetry, really), searing emotion, and a story that hits you in your very core.

This novel starts out on the foundation of a sex only relationship. Though Ugly Love is definitely Colleen’s steamiest novel to date, each encounter also carries with it an unspoken, underlying tension of the past, the present, and expectations threatening to crash in upon our two main characters who are just trying to keep things simple.

Miles’s story of his past is seamlessly interwoven with the story of his present until they meet in a quietly devastating moment that carries the impact of bomb explosion. The journey he and Tate take before and after this moment is so full of EVERYTHING. The full spectrum of emotion that makes all the ugliness and the beauty culminate in the hardest earned and most satisfying ending.

Ugly Love is a fittingly titled collection of words that reflects the beauty and the resilience of the human spirit when it is tested, seemingly beyond repair. It will haunt you with a heart that feels as though it has been ripped apart, yet mended, leaving it better than it was before.

An enthusiastic, unquestionable 5 stars.

About the Author:

Colleen Hoover is the author of several New York Times bestselling novels. Her first series was published in 2012 and includes Slammed, Point of Retreat, and This Girl. Her second series, published in 2013, includes the #1 NYT's bestseller Hopeless and the companion novel, Losing Hope. She has released a free novella, Finding Cinderella, as a thank you to her readers for their continued support. The novella is a companion to her Hopeless series, but can be read as a standalone. Her most recently published novel is Ugly Love.

Colleen lives in East Texas with her husband, their three boys, their dog, Pacey, and their zombie, Steve. Colleen loves Diet Pepsi more than all of the things, and is a ninja in her spare time.

You can follow Colleen on Instagram if you want to watch her pointless, random videos, or on Twitter, but she rarely tweets anything worth following. You can also find her on her blog or on her very active Facebook page where she loves to give away free stuff when her husband isn't looking.

  1. I just read this over the weekend and it left me conflicted. I did not like the way Tate sort of took whatever Miles was willing to give. She did not see herself deserving of something better. :( Anyway, I do understand just what kind of fools love make of us though.

  3. Colleen Hoover creates magic with a couple of simple words.She makes me say to hell with my responsibilities,simply with the goal that I don't need to part with this book.She makes you snicker and cry,fall in love and feel torment.You truly go wrong with her.

  44. I NEED MY EX BACK DESPERATELY EMAIL DR. SAM FOR URGENT AND FAST HELP: SUPREMESPELLCAST@GMAIL.COM

    My name is Lisa Amy. I am really pleased with this service Dr. Sam rendered to me. I am one of those people who said, “I’ll never call a psychic or a magician or whatever” to help me with my problems – least of all my love problems, but I reached the point where I knew I needed some guidance, and I’m so glad I found this man called Dr. Sam I never in a million years would have thought I’d be writing a letter like this, but when I nearly lost Andrew in one of our stupid, fights (he broke up with me), I thought I had lost everything.i cry all day and think that he will never come back to me again.I read a testimony by a man called Taylor Borg about him saying that how Dr. Sam helps him to get back is EX wife within 24 hours.I quickly email him. He did a (Lover spell) for me. 24 hours later, my (Ex-Boyfriend) came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promised never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal and our love is now stronger than he can't do without being with me. My boyfriend and I are living together happily again. Dr. Sam is the best online spell caster that is powerful and genuine. And when I was at my most desperate, he didn’t take advantage of me. You performed a very good service for a person in true need. I don’t know how you did it, or how this magic works, but all I know is, IT WORKS!! Andrew and I are happily back together, and I’ll always be grateful to Dr. Sam emails him for any kind of help and is very capable and reliable for help.

  45. What would i have done to get my husband back if not for the help of DR JOHN SOCO. my name is Sarah Nicky and I was in totally confused when my husband divorced me and said he was tired of me. My life was nothing without him and i tried all i could to make him cancel the divorce but he said his mind was made up and we went our separate ways. when my friend when searching for help and i was told to get in touch with DR JOHN SOCO for help by an New friend of mine when she heard what i was going through and i hurriedly contacted DR JOHN SOCO and explained everything to him and he told me that my husband will come back to me begging me to accept him back all within 24 hours just like everyone he had helped. DR JOHN SOCO restored the love and connection between me and my husband he truly returned back to me after 24 hours and it still amazes me. For more enquires on how to get in touch with DR JOHN SOCO, Email: drjohnsoco@gmail.com or WhatsApp him on +1 (706) 871 4571..
