"Only Colleen Hoover can pack that much brilliance into one novel." (Jamie McGuire #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of Beautiful Disaster)
“Hoover builds a terrific new-adult world here with two people growing in their careers and discovering mature love.” (Booklist (starred review))
"A must-read book of the year! I loved every word, I felt every moment, and I will never forget this story. I don’t give out a lot of 6 star ratings (in fact this will be the first one I’ve given this year) but the truth is that this book went above and beyond. The story was powerful, the writing was stunning, and the way every single piece of it was woven together was simply breathtaking.” (Aestas, blog review)
“By the end of this book, my heart was aching and rejoicing at the same time from the countless emotions it had been exposed to. This is the sexiest, most heart-wrenching Colleen Hoover book to date—a book that shows us a brand new side of this author’s writing genius, and it is in my humble opinion, her best work thus far.” (Natasha is a Book Junkie, blog review)
“Colleen Hoover once again proves she’s a master storyteller in her best and boldest work to date.” (Vilma’s Book Blog)

This book is based around the friends with benefits concept and while it seems like its so over done and cheesy, this book isn't like that at all. Be prepared though, because this one packs quite the punch... It evokes all the feels and left my gasping at a few twists. I didn't really love the Tate or Miles individually, but found myself rooting for them as a couple. Miles chapters were by far my favorite and getting to dive into his past to see why he was such a difficult character. The flashbacks worked so well in introducing us to Miles and the walls he's built up around him.
If you haven't picked this one up yet, what are you waiting for?!
She's a nurse going after her masters degree, working in the ER, and yet is so weak-willed she lets a guy use her and do whatever he wants even though it makes her supremely unhappy. Well, she likes the sex too. He's supposed to be some extremely good-looking pilot who hasn't even had sex in the past 6 years. Really? He couldn't find a one night stand in 6 years? Some girl willing to screw him for the night? Nah, I just didn't buy it.
Colleen Hoover once again proves she’s the Queen Storyteller in this amazing story of life, loss and love.
Ugly Love is proof that Colleen Hoover can write anything. Her stories are never boring or incomplete without some sort of angst.
"A guy folding laundry while flaunting his abs and being a pilot is seriously impressive."
I absolutely fell in love with Miles Archer, I can picture his perfect Colgate smile every time.
Ugly Love is the story of Miles and Tate... Miles is an airline pilot who can't love or forgive himself from the past. Tate, a nurse who believes she can handle that. A relationship with no promises. The pain and emotion that Colleen delivers in this book will you leave breathless.

Ugly Love's recent events are told from the perspective of Tate. our main character, a 23 yr old nursing student recently moved to live w her over protective brother Corbin , in San Francisco. meets Miles . Miles is basically described as a man who doesn't know how to love. why ?? stay tuned, everything is revealed. no cliffhanger, all questions are answered. right here. in these 300+ pages. like losing my tears and sanity in a book isn't traumatic enough!! ;) no sequel is needed and I hope Colleen doesn't write one, being that I've noticed it's difficult to feel the same magic for a second book as you did w the first one.
the whole story focuses around two facts....
Two rules: "Don't ask about my past, and never expect a future."
Whatever that means, later we learn the reason of Miles' pain and sadness and refusal to love someone other than who he wanted. Tate and Miles' relationship is absolutely beautiful. they seem to have it all . if only they'd stop lying to each other . They truly have it all... good looks, great friends. hot sex.. yes sexy, and this book was indeed that. it's more than a great storyline .. being my first Colleen Hoover read I had no clue what to expect with her writing style going into this. I learned so much. I don't usually read the type of books with an obvious man afraid of commitment as Miles was. there was something different about Ugly Love that kept my interest. obvious attraction maybe. but definitely full of wanting to know what was yet to come. Ugly Love is really a story that'll stay with you for awhile and haa earned a place in my personal favorites . im currently suffering from a major book hangover, many more books to read on my to be read list and after finishing this they haven't at all crossed my mind!!
Every other chapter (basically the even numbered chapters I've noticed) the POV changes between past, and present. which I must say was really confusing at first . Then it quickly grew on me, the way Miles describes this relationship w his previous girlfriend Rachel, 6 years ago is practically art. it becomes painfully obvious of his attraction and love directed towards this girl.
"Rachel, Rachel, Rachel.
She's like poetry. Like prose of love letters and lyrics, cascading down the center of a page.
Rachel, Rachel, Rachel." ....
now, THAT is poetry!! these chapters from a younger Miles, is pure poetry. and I personally loved it! as easily as you fall in love w Tate and Miles you fall in love w Rachel and Miles too. you feel Rachel and Miles' connection towards each other jump off the pages and directly into your heart... with every chapter their story keep you guessing and wondering what happens next. I, however, was not at all prepared for what really does happen. Sympathy, compassion, grief, and sorrow .... cue the tears and the "ugly love" . because things do indeed turn very Ugly. hence the title of the book and the whole reasoning behind Miles and Tate's relationship.
I was expecting a love story with a typical storyline.... boy likes girl . girl likes boy. they kiss they hook up fall in love the end. I wasnt at all expecting what I got. I cried, laughed, became angry, and fell in love w these characters and the whole concept and story. soon to become a movie I cant help but be glad I finally managed to read this before then . that is really something i'll be keeping my eyes and ears open for . all i can say is Hollywood ?? PLS dont eff it up !! pls kno a review for a book like this is hard to write without revealing too much away of what's to come. there weren't any unnecessary fillers of information that didn't become of relevance later. everything flowed together perfectly. even w the transitions of past and present. which worked perfectly!! just know you're in for one heck of a ride and one heck of a pool of emotion and love for the character as well as their feelings towards each other. just know by reading this book alone I've learned that Colleen Hoover is a genius and mastermind the conjure up a story as beautiful as this. I commend Colleen for wanting to tackle and write about a level of pain many ppl refuse to believe exist. for this to be my first read by her I will definitely be reading and looking for more recent reads. word of advice .... keep tissues handy !!
