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.
I’m totally a fan of Colleen Hoover’s books. They’re light to read but there’s an air of drama that makes her books very Colleen Hoover-ish. Maybe they way they’re written or what-nots, the CoHo charm perhaps?
So, Ugly Love.
I read this book in one sitting, for I think 4 hrs only. I have different takes on Tate and Miles. Tate, for one, I think is just every other girl. If I were her friend, I’d badly want to knock some sense to her and wake her up because it feels like she’s being stupid all along and I know that she’s just hurting herself emotionally although she’s getting an ultimate pleasure physically. However, I bet if I were her, I would totally do the same thing because it’s never easy to let go of someone you love even if there’s only a glimmer of hope left between the two of you. Miles on the other hand, he’s so distant which you’d totally understand based on his past. He’s like a zombie, who doesn’t or rather afraid to fall in love or even get emotionally attached to someone which is again somehow reasonable. I am like yelling at him everytime it’s Tate’s POV, to get a life because you’re wasting so much time and he’s got a pretty good job and awesome friends!
The story itself was pretty much straight-forward. As a matter of fact, I was expecting a plot twist on the later pages because CoHo is so fond of doing that to her other books but there’s none and it makes this book even better. It feels like you are reading a true story. Not a light read at all but when you started reading this book, you can’t help but get a ride on with the characters, feel how messed up their situation is and you’d even ask yourself afterward, “what am I gonna do I were Tate or Miles?”.
After reading this, you’d realize that you need to find closure from your past, forgive yourself not only for your own good but also for the people around you. And never give up on someone you love.❤
