Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

Star rating: 

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Publication date: 5th August 2014


When Tate Collins finds airline pilot Miles Archer passed out in front of her apartment door, it is definitely not love at first sight. They wouldn't even go so far as to consider themselves friends. But what they do have is an undeniable mutual attraction.

He doesn't want love and she doesn't have time for a relationship, but their chemistry cannot be ignored. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up, as long as Tate can stick to two rules:

Never ask about the past and don't expect a future.

Tate is determined that she can handle it, but when she realises that she can't, will she be able to say no to her sexy pilot when he lives just next door?


My last foray into a Colleen Hoover book wasn't great (I gave Maybe Not a two star rating) but I said I wasn't put off and would definitely read some of the more hyped books. Ugly Love was definitely better but didn't wow me.

Tate Collins temporarily moves in with her airline pilot brother Corbin. After meeting one of his good friends, Miles Archer, the two have a mutual attraction. Miles however cannot commit. He cannot love anyone due to something that happened to him in his past.

Firstly, I loved the dual timeline. The present told from Tate's point of view was okay but I really enjoyed Miles' from six years previous. I liked hearing the backstory of why Miles is the way he is and what happened between him and Rachel. I will say though that I listened to this on audio and just did not gel with the male narrator - sorry!

I will admit that I felt a bit bored with the back and forth between Tate and Miles. I get it, we all love spice, but it became a bit repetitive for me and I did eye roll a bit.

I enjoyed the character development, of Miles especially, and I know this is a controversial opinion but the ending was a bit too clean cut for me.
