Blog Tour: Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

Release date:  August 5, 2015

When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t 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.

This book wasn't what I was expecting.  What I mean by that is, between the name and Colleen, I expected some ugly tears.  Now, don't get all disappointed by this.  I am not saying there aren't parts that won't make you cry, there are.  It's just I am a tougher cookie to crack.  I was almost there a few times.  I just needed more for the tears to fall.

I love how this book starts out.  Tate and Miles' meeting isn't very typical or romantic.  I couldn't help but chuckle a little.  I found myself doing that periodically throughout the book.  The slow friendship/relationship that builds between these two is bittersweet.  It isn't instant and it is heartbreaking at times.

Colleen always seems to get me so far into her characters' heads that I can't seem to escape them for some time.  I still catch myself sitting here thinking about them from time to time.  That doesn't always happen!

Per usual, I am not going to go into the plot.  You read the blurb.  I am sure there are many reviews out there already that have delved into the plot and dissected it for you.  I will tell you that the story has its own uniqueness that will keep you reading.  I didn't want to put it down!
