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.
“You're looking at me like you fell in love with me."
"I didn't fall in love with you. I flew.”
I should start with this:I've read this book twice and i feel the same about it.Like all the books written by Colleen,this book was amazing,beautiful and at the same time heartbreaking.Well,the story is exactly like the title says: ''Ugly Love'',but the truth is that this book was mostly about second chances and what could happen every day in someones life.
Well,i do love books that have roller coaster of emotional events and ugly pasts,but i can honestly admit that this book made me cry and my heart broke because of Miles.
Tate's life changes completely from the moment she decided to move in with her brother,Corbin.She never thought that she will meet someone there,someone who will change her life completely,turning it upside down and making her wish for so many things.But meeting Miles Archer made her realize that love can have many sides.
Miles knows that walking through life like a zombie is the only solution for him,because something bad happened to him ,something that made him think that he didn't deserve to love or be loved by someone.Being a pilot makes everything easier for him..That until he met Corbin's little sister,Tate.
And everything changes completely.
“But the second she opened her eyes and looked at me, I knew. She was either going to be the death of me . . . or she was going to be the one who finally brought me back to life.”
This story was really complicated from the beginning,mainly because of Miles and all the secrets he was keeping.The way he was acting and the fact that there was something huge going on with him,and nobody knew what.Honestly,i can't deny the fact that all those mysteries and what started between him and Tate made everything very interesting and really intense.I liked that from the beginning,until i hoped for more.Until i hoped to know the answers to my ''Why's'' and i wanted to understand everything.
Ups and downs,many ups and downs,because like i said this story was really complicated and the way things transformed step by step made my head spin ,but in a good way.Beautiful!It was really hard for me not to love Miles,even if i wanted to shake some sense in him and try to understand how he could do that to Tate,but knowing his reasons,well,i got to the point when i started to think like this:In order for something beautiful to happen,something bad has to happen first.And it did.
“There were moments I didn't care if I ever hurt again, because being with you almost felt worth the potential pain.”
Tate wasn't a bad character.She was smart,beautiful and amazing,but a little naive.The way she met Miles at the beginning?Well,that was funny and i couldn't stop myself from laughing.She had a few moments when i hated her a little,but the rest?Amazing and fun!Every single moment in this book was hard for her and i can say that a lot of things weren't fair to her.But she agreed with everything,so...
Miles?Charming,handsome,sexy and mysterious.Those are the words that popped into my mind after reading about him.It was obvious from the beginning that he was hiding something huge,but ,heck,it was worth every single chapter.
A pilot.A nurse.A complicated relationship between a man, whose past still haunts him, and a woman ,who wants more than he could give.This book was amazing from the beginning until the end.It had good characters that made everything better and special.But my whole attention was focused on Miles and Tate.The rest?Well,i know a little about the rest,so i guess,yeah,i paid attention.
Even if my heart broke,even if i cried at the end of this book,i still think that it was beautiful and that this was a true love story.Complicated,intense ,sexy and full of amazing characters.Worth reading!
