Ugly Love Summary:

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 one thing.

Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.

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 Review

Ugly Love is vintage Colleen Hoover – a book that pulls you in with characters you must know everything about. They are characters that you completely fall for as they fall for each other and boy does your heart go through the wringer with this one.

But no fear, Colleen Hoover patches it up again in the best way making this one of the best Colleen Hoover books!

In Ugly Love, Tate moves in with her brother and meets Miles, a pilot who lives in the same apartment complex. But Miles is a man a few words, going through the motions, and you know it’s because he’s harboring something huge – something significant.

Yet Tate is drawn to him and soon they’re making a pact – a sort of friends-with-benefits pact – with two unwavering rules: Don’t ask about Miles’ past and don’t expect a future.

Tate is quick to agree and comply, but soon her heart gets tangled up with the man.

Colleen Hoover weaves such a beautiful story because she alternates between Tate’s present point of view with Miles’ past point of view and I loved both.

From the present you see his hurt and her love growing, but from the past you come to understand the cause of his hurt and it’s brutal.

This is definitely one of my favorite Colleen Hoover books. I loved it. And I bawled. Boy did I bawl for this man and for the past he endured, and for the future he was scared to accept.

The way Colleen Hoover wrote Miles, you can’t help but want to reach in and hug this man and never let go. It’s why he made my list of heroes with wounded hearts. But I’ll leave Tate to heal him.

Who Will Love Ugly Love?

Ugly Love will make you ugly cry, but it is so worth it. Readers who love books with heroes with wounded hearts, neighbors to lovers stories, slow burn romances, and brother’s best friend romances will want to pick up Ugly Love.

Of course, if you’re a fan of Colleen Hoover books, this is one not to miss. It has all the feels like It Ends With Us and It Starts With Us and it will tug on you like Reminders of Him.

Or, if you are new to Colleen Hoover books, definitely pick up Ugly Love as it’s a great representation of her incredible writing, her storytelling abilities, and her craft at character development.

This is a standalone novel, so give it a read and then check out all the Colleen Hoover books series next.
