About the Book:
This is a Contemporary Romance written in the first person.
“When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she doesn’t think it’s 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.”
My Four Star Review:
I’m not a big fan of first person writing because I always feel like I’m missing out on the other characters point of view but Colleen is definitely changing my mind. There are two main characters, Tate and Miles, and each alternating chapter is written from their point of view. This book has intrigue, suspense and a few tears to go along with it. At one point I wanted to smack Miles in the head but in the next second you just want to pull him into your arms and hug him. To me, this book is Miles emotional, tortured journey and you just know it has to end with something amazing.
At the very beginning of the book Tate arrives at her brother’s apartment to find a very drunk man sitting in front of the door. When Tate’s brother Corbin (also a pilot) says, “I kind of need you to do me a huge favor.” I was hooked and could not put the book down. Like many of Colleen’s books, the characters are in their early to middle 20’s and experiencing the “struggles” associated with life. This book is a fast easy read and definitely worth your time.
If you are a book movie person, you will be happy to know Ugly Love the Movie will be coming out in 2016. Link to Movie teaser is below.
