eARC Review: Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

17788401Title: Ugly Love
Author: Colleen Hoover
Publisher: Atria Books
Pages: 320
Series: -
Release Date: August 5th 2014
Where I Got It: Atria Books
Synopsis: 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.

Colleen HooverI love music. LOVE music. Namely The Avett Brothers, Lumineers, Pink, Eminem. I have eclectic taste? If you have any recommendations, send them my way!

I'm addicted to diet pepsi and could tell you in a taste-test which restaurant it came from. It's a serious addiction, I tell you. 
I get stoked whenever I get a message from goodreads saying I have a new friend request me, dangit!

I read this book on July 17th 2014.

I received an ARC of this book for the blog tour from the publisher.

Simply amazing. I couldn't put it down once. I fell in love with the characters and the heartbreaking story that was told through the story. I loved it and, once again, Colleen Hoover doesn't disappoint with her story.

At first glance when I saw the cover, I didn't like it very much because of the simple fact that I hadn't read the book. Once you read the book it makes so much sense and you don't even want to change it one bit. It was just simply perfect.

The story: I loved it. I thought it was very interesting to see how Miles and Tate's story started from the very beginning with just sex to what they grew into. I thought it was a very sweet and unforgettable story of love and heartbreak and it was simply amazing to read and to be a part of.

The reason this book didn't get a solid 4 stars was because when I got to the tail end of it, I started to get very frustrated with Tate and some of her choices. It wasn't the only frustrating thing, but it was certainly up there. I felt I could compare with Tate very well but when she made those choices, some even near the beginning, I felt it wasn't very smart of her. I found it frustrating that she would allow herself to have just sex with someone when she knew from the beginning she wouldn't be able to allow herself to have just sex. However, I can also understand because she doesn't feel she can manage to have love in her life so I can understand why she made the choices she made, I just don't agree.

Basically, this book is amazing and heartbreaking and awesome and much more words that mean you have to read the book the next chance you get. It was one of my new favourite reads. If you love Colleen, you're for sure to love this one.
