ARC Review: Ugly Love by colleen hoover


Ugly Love

By colleen Hoover


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 my first taste of Colleen Hoovers writing and it will certainly not be my last!

Tate Collins is moving in with her brother, an airline pilot who is never home, while finishing up her Masters degree. When she arrives at her brothers home for the first time, she isn’t expecting to find a guy passed out drunk on the front door. She soon finds out the man passed out drunk is her brothers best friend and neighbor, Miles Archer. The two seem to not like each other one bit and the only thing they have in common is this strange attraction to one another.

Tate is a sarcastic little firecracker and I enjoyed being in her head a lot. Who doesn’t love a witty main character? I also love that we do get to see a softer side to Tate when she is with Cap and really opens up. Speaking of Cap he is probably one of my favorite Secondary characters of the book. He’s kind of liker their own little Jiminy Cricket of the real world!

Miles is probably one of the best broken heroes EVER. At first I really wanted to dislike him. I tried really hard, but once you get his story it just all kind of clicks and you can’t help but fall all the way in love with him. Even when he seemed cold (and he really did at times) I wanted to know more of him. He is very mysterious which I think is what draws us in as readers.

Ugly Love is told in Duel POV. Tate’s POV is told in present day and Mile’s POV is told six years prior, but toward the end his POV comes to present day. I know it seems weird that his is told 6 years prior, but it works and we get a lot of background on Miles and it really helps to build his character.

I really enjoyed this book I gave it a 5 out of 5 stars and I would definitely recommend it to my friends.

  1. I’m glad you enjoyed it! This is probably my favorite book of 2014 – it’s fantastic! Great review. 🙂

  2. I hadn’t even seen this book before I read your review, and I’m definitely interested now! I love it when jerky heroes are given good reasons to be jerks!

    1. Yes Miles is probably my latest book boyfriend!Ugly Love comes out Aug. 5th if you are interested. I was just lucky enough to have an ARC provided to me by my local bookstore. A lot of people don’t know this, but if you have a local bookstore or library nearby sometimes you can ask and see if they have any good ARC’s they need reviews for and if you write a review up for them so they can promote the book, they will let you borrow it.
