Als Tate zum Studium nach San Francisco zieht, stolpert sie dort gleich am ersten Abend über Miles Archer: Miles, der Freund ihres Bruders, der niemals lächelt, meistens schweigt und offensichtlich eine schwere Bürde mit sich herumträgt. Miles, der so attraktiv ist, dass Tate bei seinem Anblick Herzflattern und weiche Knie bekommt. Miles, der, wie er selbst zugibt, seit se ...more

Holy WOW!!! What a beautiful story!!!

It was absolute stunning perfection in every way. My heart is just overflowing with emotions ♥

Starting with Slammed and Point of Retreat, then with HopelessLosing Hope and This Girl, and once again with Maybe Someday, Colleen Hoover has proven over and over again that her stories are unique, powerful and incredibly well written. I have come to trust her writing implicitly. I love the pa

First, I really have to thank my good friend Geri for buddy reading this with me or I would’ve taken a screwdriver to my eye long before I finished this book. I honestly have nothing positive to say about this book so I’m going to put all my complaining in a spoiler tag so I don’t purposely hurt anyone who loved it.

I know most of my GR friends–in fact, most everyone–loved this book, so please don't throw rotten tomatoes at me. I wish I could say I loved it, too, but I can't.

When I read a romance, I need to FEEL some semblance of that romance. I need to LIKE at least ONE of the characters. If that's not possible, I need to be able to at least SYMPATHIZE with one them. Unfortunately, I never once felt the romance, and I could neither like nor sympathize with either one of the characters.

ok let me get something cleared up here. I can't make excuses for why I didn't enjoy this book like "it's because I don't like romance" or "erotica just isn't up my alley". I have read and LOVED books that definitely count as romance and/or erotica (Easy, The Girl in 6E, HECK I even loved Anna and the French Kiss) so that just won't fly.

The reasons I hated this book are as follows:

Colleen Hoover has done it again. Not that I ever doubted her, but I didn’t know what to expect when starting Ugly Love. It’s safe to say she never disappoints. With her amazing writing style, fascinating characters and original story lines, I was hooked from the beginning. I expected to love this book. What I wasn’t expecting was for my heart to be shredded.

This book was miserable. It goes toe to toe with Hopeless for the worst book I’ve read by her. There are three things that I think went horribly in this book. First, there is blatant sexism and the perpetuation of gender stereotypes on every. single. page. Second, this main character had absolutely NO self respect. I know this may be part of the plot, but it was absolutely despicable. She let Miles walk all over her and decimate her feelings to a pulp. She was spineless and pathetic, which was i ...more

I finished this book in 12 hours. ONE DAY. I finished it in one day. I'm giving it 5 stars because I still can't believe that I, Natasha Polis, finished a book in a day. I've never done that before. Ever. It was so good and so entertaining. Lots of sexytimes, very mature scenes, which I did enjoy but still not heavily detailed which I'm very thankful for. The emotions and tears I felt for and had for Miles really made this book. I can't wait to read another Colleen Hoover book!

I couldn't endure Miles' melodramatic chapters anymore. And the narrator (audio book version) had such a deep voice; it was painful to listen to and, at times, hard to discern the words uttered. But, well, this was one of my first experiences with audio books. DNF at 33%.
You know when even one star feels too generous?
Yeah, that's me right now.

"Ugly love becomes you.
Consumes you.
Makes you hate it all.
Makes you realize that all the beautiful parts aren’t even worth it."

What a ride it's been!

A love story between two people, Miles and Tate, who weren’t ready to fall in love, or at least they thought so. They came to an agreement from the very beginning.


But was an agreement enough to prevent them from feeling something more than the mutual attraction they had?

I had a love-hate relationship with this one. This story, those characters, and their relationship were so conflicting. On the one hand,

Ugly Love is exactly what you can expect from the title. It’s not flawless romance about flawless couple who quickly gets their happily ever after, not at all.

This story has a bit of a different vibe from Colleen Hoover’s other stories, yet it had the same amazing flare, and inspirational message she delivers every darn time she gifts us with a book. The story will grab you and make you feel, cringe, cry and then the author will build you back up again so carefully and then bam it’s over and you wish it had just one more chapter.

CoHo wrote about the uglier side of love… when love ruins you. The “thing” that ruins Miles for love is definitely ugly. Tate is willing to be the woman who will be in Miles life with no strings attached.
She agrees to his two rules:
1. never ask about his past
2. don't expect a future

But Tate lets her heart "hope" for more. I was "shipping" for these two. Even though their relationship was only built on a mutual attraction and a desire for sexy time... I wanted MORE for them.

Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover
Giselle (Book Nerd Canada)
There's one thing I don't understand with romance novels.. When the characters and plot doesn't actually remind me of a love story. This is pure lust and obsession. There's a trope that everyone is familiar with: the man who doesn't want to commit and the woman who wants to change him for the better. It's not new, it's not exciting, it's just boring. This one had it all and I was terribly not impressed. Sprinkle that with sex scenes and this is what you get. I was more interested in Miles' past ...more

Ugly Love, written by Colleen Hoover, is a heart-breaking romance, which focuses on the complicated relationship of Tate Collins and Miles Archer. The story offers great writing, shocking backstories, likeable characters, epic romance and the hot, sexy moments, which makes the book so much better. This is truly a wonderful romance, and is proof Colleen Hoover can write anything. An addictive story, Ugly Love te
