Review: Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

Title: Ugly Love
Author: Colleen Hoover
Genre: New Adult
Publisher: Simon and Schuster

An unforgettable love story that breaks all the rules.

When Tate Collins finds airline pilot Miles Archer passed out in front of her apartment door, it is definitely not love at first sight. In fact, they wouldn't even consider themselves friends. But what they do have is an undeniable mutual attraction.

He doesn't want love and she doesn't have time for a relationship, but their chemistry cannot be ignored. Once their desires are out in the open, they realise they have the perfect set-up, as long as Tate can stick to two rules - never ask about the past and don't expect a future.

Tate convinces herself she's ok with it, but soon realises that it's harder than she thought. Will she be able to say no to her sexy pilot when he lives just next door?

"Colleen Hoover is a sneaky woman. Without you knowing, she rips your heart out, bit by bit until you realise it's not there. Just beautiful." Bookbitchreviews

I've only read one other book by Colleen Hoover and that was Maybe Someday. That's story blew me away and instantly lodged itself in my heart, both the book and the characters. But just when I thought Colleen couldn't get any better she brought this book along. I captured my attention, took me on a journey of broken hearts and love and without myself knowing, ripped my heart out. There is no doubt that this is one of the best books of 2014.

The one thing that Colleen does so well is create characters that are not only realistic, but also characters that you grow to love. It's a very rare and special talent and one that should never be wasted and you can tell that these aren't just Colleen creations. They're like her adopted children. Only fictional.

Both Tate and Miles are great characters and from chapter one you are attracted to Miles because of his drunkenly behaviour. "I'm so sorry, Rachael." Who is Rachael? Why is he crying? and that made me want to read more and more and more and more.

I felt like I was drowning while reading this book.

We all know that Miles has this secret and seeing his story from Six years before, was probably the best thing that could've happened in the book. I loved seeing his back life, while he was so recluse to Tate and it made you understand his actions. I have to say that what happened, I did not predict. I had two situations in my head that I thought was going to happen, but it wasn't any of them, it shocked me. My heart had died.
The epilogue was the tear jerker for me. I shed a few little tears, but the whole story wrapped up beautifully and it made me realise that love is both beautiful and ugly. We should never take it for granted.
5/5 STARS!
