Book Review #95: Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

I rate this book 3.5 out of 5 stars.

(Finished Reading: 10/07/16
My 10th book this year.)

Tate is moving in with her brother Corbin. Tate is a nurse and Corbin is a pilot.

On moving day Tate turns up alone and discovers a drunk guy passed out on their doorstep. Corbin tells her he lives across the hall and to let him in.

Miles has such a disturbed personality. Cold, depressed and just a workaholic.

Tate and Miles form a complicated relationship where it is all about their physical needs. Miles has 2 rules: 1) do not ask about the past, 2) do not expect a future. But Tate is falling for him and needs him. The only way she can have him is to follow the rules.

The emotions in this book are extremely intense. The love, the guilt and the pain. So raw and extreme.

It was a nice read. The beginning felt so real and the love was captured perfectly. Then came the hard times and it left Miles a broken man for many years to come.

I loved how the love was delivered in this book, but then it began to get repetitive. I thought this would have been a tear jerker book, but it didn’t even come close which is what disappointed me the most.

I wanted the love and the pain. I wanted to know the whole story. But even after reading it all, something didn’t deliver and I expected something to make me feel heart broken.

It was a worthy read but it won’t be a particularly memorable one to recommend.
