Book Synopsis

#1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover's heart-wrenching love story proves that attraction at first sight can be messy.

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.

Review Quotes

Ugly Love carries the kinship of stellar writing, (poetry, really), searing emotion, and a story that hits you in your very core."-- "I Heart Big Books, blog tour review"

Ugly Love is another hit from Colleen Hoover that will leave your heart open and exposed to the myriad of emotions Tate and Miles' story will inflict upon it."--Lovin Los Libros, blog review

" Colleen Hoover has given us a story that is full of emotion.... she stayed true to her reputation of writing characters that are real and a story that is both compelling and powerful."--A Literary Perusal, 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 is an artist. She has this uncanny ability to take normal, everyday words and somehow turn them into the most beautiful poetry I've ever read. The beauty of her lyrical writing style made me teary-eyed countless times. She can take something so simple and make it so powerful."--Nestled in a Book, blog review

"Colleen Hoover does it again. She always creates a story that gets under your skin and hits you right in the heart. Ugly Love was no exception. Miles and Tate have a very intense story to be told and only Colleen Hoover could do it justice."--Readers Live a 1000 Lives, blog tour review

"Colleen Hoover has done it again. Her words have wholly altered me, mind, body, and spirit. I can't explain what I've done or where I've been the past few hours, and the only thing that is in my mind is WOW."--The Scarlet Siren, blog tour review

"Colleen Hoover once again proves she's a master storyteller in her best and boldest work to date."--Vilma's Book Blog

"I'm not sure my heart will ever forget this book. Incredible read!!!"--Flirty and Dirty Book Blog, blog tour review

"If you were to only read one book this year, make that book Ugly Love.... It's definitely my favorite book of all time, and that's not a phrase that I use lightly."--Kayla's Reads & Reviews, blog tour review

"She's done it again, my friends. And to be honest I didn't think she was ever going to write something I loved more than MAYBE SOMEDAY, but I was book hung over for 2 full days after UGLY LOVE."--Me, My Shelf, & I, blog 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

Colleen Hoover just demolished me. Completely and 100% blew me away...not that I'm surprised or anything because she never ceases to amaze me.... I was pulled in from the beginning...and I loved every second of it!"--True Story Book Blog, blog tour review

I LOVE everything and anything that this woman writes...This is everything we come to expect from Ms. Hoover and SO MUCH more! You know when you come across a book and you don't know what to say about it other than that you loved it and it was amazing?! Well thats how I feel about Ugly Love. JUST READ IT! TRUST ME!"-- "Shh Mom's Reading, blog tour review"

Thank you for another 'rip my heart out' excursion ... and with Ugly Love you somehow managed to do it TWICE! And I loved every bit of it!"--The Real Housewives of Romance, blog tour review

Only Colleen Hoover can pack that much brilliance into one novel.--Jamie McGuire "#1 New York Times Bestselling Author of Beautiful Disaster"

So so good!! I’ve read 8 of Colleen Hoover’s more popular books, this was by far my favorite. This was also by far the most raunchy out of all of her books that I’ve read so far, if you like that kinda thing. Passionate, funny, I laughed and cried and felt heartbreak and happiness. Ugly Love has ALL the things!!

honestly one of the worst romance books i’ve ever read! not only was it insanely unrealistic, i believe the storyline was potentially harmful to young women who read it. (minor spoilers ahead) focuses almost solely on the sx lives of the two lovers and barely develops their actual romantic love, before giving a lazy fairytale ending. throughout the whole story, the female main character is compromising on what she wanted to please the man who does not treat her well and specifically did not want anything serious with her and then gave her some unrealistic fairytale ending like “i treated you horribly this whole time and told you i straight up didn’t want you for anything but sx but suddenly i want to marry you!!”. i feel like this book reinforces the idea that if women just give men what they want and stick around and please them they’ll maybe eventually get wifed up which is not the truth and so harmful for young women to read. the only interesting plot line was the incestuous relationship (which was weird and unnecessary lol) and respective loss that tate had. this book was 60 percent sx and not worth reading.

I really enjoyed this book. It was really well written. I still haven’t read a Colleen Hoover book I don’t think. I’m more of a thriller type just because I do feel like romance novels can be pretty predictable. Still I’d definitely recommend this to someone.

YOU NEED TO READ THIS BOOK! Although it took me a few chapters to get into it-once I was into it I could not put it down. I love the way there are two stories being told and the way they connect at the end is amazing. This book sparked something in me. I recommend this book to anyone who is going through a heartbreak or struggle in life-or anyone who wants to read a book about love and the beautiful moments of it a long with the ugly side of it. Such a good book!
