I'm honestly torn with this book. I think the ending was beautiful and sweet and truly what was needed to end the story. But, I feel like for the first half of the novel Tate and Miles had terrible chemistry, their thing kinda felt forced, mostly at the beginning. Sure, I understand that they were attracted to each other right away but them kissing at like 15% of the book made me wish for a slower burn. Also, after the tenth time, reading about them having sex was a bit repetitive and it did very little for the plot. So, I guess three stars. ( )
Kind of like Fifty Shades of Grey without the S & M
Is there anything more to say about it? I think the review of the book should be just his name. Cause his name is everything this book is.
I love complex heroes, and I have a thing for broken ones as well, no shit, you can get this information by knowing me and my favourite heroes... Or at least the most memorable ones.
So currently at the top of the list of book boyfriends are:
1. Damon Torrance (Sweet baby Jesus, I love him)
2. Close second for Miles Archer and his gorgeous blue eyes
3. And third-best (which book I still haven't completed) is Saint Memphis.
A lot of people would ask me why I haven't added the famous Carter from "Untouchable", but I guess I never really get involved in this book.
If I had to make a top 5 list - the hero from "The Kiss Thief" would definitely make it into it.
But now back to reviewing "Ugly love".
I have to say this is the second time I'm reading this book. So I knew the ending... But that didn't mean I didn't cry my eyes out. NO! It was even more emotional than the first time. Cause you know every small thing that leads to this ending, and you can feel it and enjoy it.
Miles and Tate were something else. I adore them so much, and I just loved reading about them. I love their interactions, I hated their fights. It was an emotional rollercoaster.
And the writing was phenomenal. I'm not a big fan of CoHo, and a lot of people said this book she wrote with a different style, so maybe that's why I enjoyed it so much.
So much that I'm sure I'll have a book hangover after it.
Now, Tate, and Miles. And Miles, and Tate.
Tate was an amazing character, I could feel for her, and I longer for Miles, as she did, and I cried with her, and I loved him with her. She was strong and successful, and her relationship with Cap was so wholesome to read about.
And Miles was just Miles. A broken, but kind, gentle, and thoughtful. I was surprised by his lack of cockiness (which I love in my heroes), but it felt like a breath of fresh air. And his eyes... Ahhh, his eyes.
The story was also amazing, Even tho I am not a fan of the Present-past-present kind of stories, I really enjoyed this one, and I read the chapters about the past with interest, not only skimming over.
But again all I have to say after reading this book consists of two words:
This was the first Colleen Hoover that I read back in the day in 2014. I fell in love with it. This is a reread for me
I guess I can add incest to the list of things that I wasn't expecting to read but somehow are more wholesome than most of her books. This is oddly enough also more wholesome than anything else she's read in a lot of ways except for maybe two other books.
I didn't really care for it in a lot of ways, but I can't say that it was written a lot better than some of the other stuff she's done, I didn't care about the plot, I couldn't handle the doormat fixation BS or the fact it's basically step bro I'm stuck in a wall.
I want to reiterate, just because I say it's better written than everything else she writes, does not mean I'm saying it's well written.
The ending is probably the funniest thing I have read in a while, because having him say Rachel while having sex with another woman is probably the most predictable thing I could have ever expected, and yet the other characters reaction to it is hilarious. I know, I know, cheating bad. But honestly it's a Colleen Hoover book it's going to have cheating, abuse, incest, or something else wrong with it. At this point just let me have my funny ha has.
It does have really good scenes that I enjoy mostly the few scenes that are not them fixated on having sex constantly. When they have sex that everything good goes out the window. The car scene was hilariously bad. These people are aliens pretending to be people.
The main character Miles is extremely manipulative and when I say that I mean he's just manipulative as hell, I don't know why he has to be this way but he's being this way and we have to deal with it. It's his world and we're just living in it.
Stupid little remark, but there's something about Colleen Hoover and not being able to pick names. I don't know why but for some reason every time she names characters it sounds so unreal and like she used an alien generator to create something or she mistranslated it. I don't think I've ever seen her make a character who seems realistic, and has a realistic name. It's like she use the fantasy generator honestly. I hope these all get revealed one day to be like her character she made when she was seven.
I did pick up some very pro-life undertones and I wasn't really fond of that. Like I'm not sure what this author's agenda is at this point from the books that I've read it's been pro lgbt, black friendly, pro-life but also against all of those things at the same time. So what is the message? We're pro-life but we're also pro creepy and says relationship? Aight.
"We laugh at our son's big balls."
Say the two siblings while talking about their infant child's testicles. Can we talk about the fact that this story already has incest and for some reason they're talking about their baby's balls? Like that's just messed up on so many levels and I can't separate this from anything else. Like obviously they're not related but they were raised together so it's already a little bit weird but their siblings and they're talking about child balls.
I had so many questions at that moment but you know what, one thing I can say about calling Hoover books is there over in a flash and so is that child's life apparently. Because he has those two for parents one way or another in some reality.
Thank Cob for fast paced audiobooks and being able to read a book in one sitting.
Tate has no existence. She's just there, I guess. In a lot of ways she's a vector for seeing the world, but also she's a doormat that gets utilized and used. And I do mean used.
She's basically a therapist who doesn't get paid, gets abused, and that's it. At least it's consensual, it's abusive but consensual which is almost a step in the right direction for a CoHo book. "Rachel" he moans.
I honestly lost it laughing. Rachel, Rachel, Rachel.
Along with her abusing the word "invade". They milk that word so much in this book that it loses its meaning and starts to become a funny little word that doesn't look like it's written right to me. "Invade me", "Invaded", "He invaded". I can't.
I feel like since I grew up with Life With Derek I can safely say that this is it. But please stop using invade more than Invader Zim. Please.
What am emotional ride this book sent me through.
But at least it was a mutual romance this time!

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 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.
