Ugly Love (Unabridged)
From Colleen Hoover, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Starts with Us and It Ends with Us, a heart-wrenching love story that proves 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.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
This messy, imperfect love story definitely doesn’t start with a meet-cute. Miles Archer may be a handsome airplane pilot, but nursing student Tate Collins isn’t impressed. After all, the first time she sees Miles, he’s passed out drunk in front of her brother’s apartment. But that doesn’t stop them from acting on their instant attraction. At first, their hot, no-strings arrangement is pure, steamy fun, but eventually Tate realizes just how not okay she is with Miles’ two ground rules: Don’t ask about his past and don’t imagine a shared future. Only a romance master like Colleen Hoover (CoHo to those who love her) could make us care so deeply about such imperfect characters as the emotionally needy Tate and walled-off Miles—and narrators Grace Grant and Deacon Lee do a remarkable job of revealing each character’s emotional shades. Get ready to ugly cry your way through this redemptive romance.
Intriguing, slightly cheesy
I love using audiobooks to take up time on my drives to work. This book was intriguing but also somewhat cheesy when it comes to the characters thoughts. The storyline was frustrating to me but that’s what made me want to finish it through. Nothing like it ends with us but still had me tear up one or two times. A good read for entertainment.
Miles’ voice is super off putting. Not a great audiobook. The repetitiveness with which “Rachel” is stated alone is hard to get past. High school miles’ perspective on love is weird and annoying. AND I’ve LOVED every other Co Ho book I’ve read.
Well told, Great closure
I really like the way this book was written, and what I mean by that is it felt like everything mentioned was necessary. This was a book that was told in a way that won’t make you zone out. This is kind of a smutty book, the aspects of how the love was formed between the two characters was more lust like than love like in my opinion, that was my only con to the book. otherwise the closure of the book was pretty satisfying! I see some reviews mentioning a dislike to mile’s voice, but i actually thought his voice was so endearing! when he speaks he’s at the age of 18, and a boy in love at 18, it sounds like he’s smiling through every word he tells.
