Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover Book Summary
From Colleen Hoover, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Starts with Us and It Ends with Us, a heart-wrenching love story that proves attraction at first sight can be messy.
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.

I couldn’t put this book down!! It was the best read I’ve read in 2022!
10/10 top relatable to what I’ve been going through this last year. Amazing story.
Just finished reading this last night. This is the 2nd CoHo book I've read and I am in love!
Second book by her that I read and I love it!
best one i have read yet
I’m not saying it’s good just to ride the bandwagon. Thoroughly reading this book and looking back at some of the things that happened.. just wow. The flow of the story was good. Flipping from past to present and understanding the reason why one character was a certain way. Figuring out how to love again, it was beautiful. I wish I could read it for the first time again! Also the it had enough spice for me lol!
This should be named TOXIC LOVE!
This story was very disappointing and I feel sad for the young girls and boys who may read this and think the behaviors of Miles and the feelings from Tate are healthy. Tate constantly says things like I know this is a red flag but… I hate myself around him… I’m scared of him and his reactions. Young boys and girls who read these types of stories, please recognize this behavior is extremely unhealthy and could easily lead to an abusive relationship in real life. Do not think that if you love someone else enough you can “save them.” Someone who truly loves you will make you feel respected and more yourself. Of course, in real life we can meet people who changes our lives, people who love and support a partner while they address their trauma and work toward healthier behaviors. This could have been a story of learning healthy strategies of surviving trauma and redemption depicting the healing journey. Instead it completely romanticizes unhealthy relationships and abusive behaviors. I gave 1 star because it was a quick read and the potential this story could have had.
Nice easy romance novel. I liked it!
This is such a beautiful story. I will read it over and over again.
not sure why this has such overwhelmingly good reviews. for one thing, everything about the book is boring...boring characters, boring setting, boring plot. i didn't really find myself enjoying any part of it. for another thing, this book has incredibly toxic undertones and the fact that it has a happy ending is so disappointing. miles walks all over tate for the entire book, using his unresolved issues as an excuse. hes totally smeowelfish for the entire story and then gets rewarded for it by the end. i would be fine if it didnt end in happily ever after, but the fact that it ends with them getting together is just romanticizing abuse. colleen hoover seems to have a recurring theme in her books of toxic, abusive men. i wish she would stop romanticizing these kinds of relationships one thing i will give her though, is that it is very well written. it had some good elements that ended up coming together cohesively in the end. still, though, not worth reading
I wouldnt consider this one of my favorites just because it took forever to get to the point of Miles story. Basically toward the end of the book. It dragged on quite a bit, but nonetheless the ending made me tear up!
Do not waste your time and money. Unless you are a teenager. Lol. This book is so stupid and unrealistic.
I love Colleen Hoover! Thank you for reminding me why I love romance novels. This one really tugged at my heart.
This book was great! Definitely a page turner. It ended great I just wish there was another book on their lives for the next few years after having Sam. I could keep reading on and on forever.
Could not stop reading!!!! The romance between Tate and Miles! Then the sadness from Miles it all just tied together
Absolutely LOVED it I couldn’t put it down and finished it in 2 days! I’m not much of a reader but this book had my full attention
This novel was so amazing. I am usually not the reading type but I could not put it down! Great read!
literally what got me back into reading best book ever!
Sad to say but I predicted the end from the second chapter from Miles perspective. Also the writing from his teenage perspective really threw me off? I still loved the feel good moments and the roller coaster ride of emotions this book brought me to. Definitely worth a quick read, but not my favorite of her books hence the 3 stars.
I finished this book within a day, I literally couldn’t put it down. It was amazing, very sad but happy. I recommend this book.
Love love love this book! I adore the story line , how both sides of each characters story were told, how you could almost feel the emotion from the words.. but the juicy parts, just let me tell you IMMACULATE,INTENSE, HOT !!
read this book in two days, could not take my eyes off of it. best story line and amazing writing. totally recommend to read this book! loved it soooo much
Haven’t ever picked up a book for pleasure, figured I would start reading again at the thought of me becoming illiterate.. took a friends recommendation and I was so glad I did! This book was an easy read, I finished it in a day, couldn’t put it down! This was my first Hoover read, and I cant wait to read the rest!
What a way to capture all the feelings the characters go through. Makes you happy and sad and mad…awesome read
An absolute page t u r n e r!!! I could not read this fast enough. 5 starts all around!
Love the way it was written
As much as I have loved the books by Colleen Hoover, this one disappointed me the most. Page after page after page of sex. Gets old after a while.
This has to one of my favorite books that I have read from her it was sooo sooo sooo good!!!! I cried so hard and I just felt the love from the beginning
Struggled so hard to get through this book. We get it, they’re having sex. The story doesn’t get remotely interesting until almost to the end. Sigh.
Colleen Hoover does it again! Had me crying! It was such a roller coaster but so worth it!! Only thing I wish the character were older at the time. But all in all great read!
Loved this book from the moment I started to read it. I could hardly put it down! The relationships were so real and it really makes you stop and think about life. I cried and laughed and to me, that is a great book! I will be thinking about this one for a long time.
I’m absolutely blown away by how amazing this book was !
This book had me hooked, I couldn’t put it down!
Loved it and cried big ugly tears at the end. What a beautiful book.
I cried so much!! Amazing writing and story telling, I fell in love with each character. To say I’m obsessed would be an understatement. I love this book so much!! 10/10.
I had feeelings reading this book. I laughed, i cried and it ended. Such an easy read but also gave me feelings. Great!
I was so caught up in this book. Then it made me a little mad. But all good books end in a happy ever after.
The first time reading this book I did enjoy it, but the more I thought about it the less I actually found it interesting. Now I just find parts of this book odd and makes the whole vibe weird.
It's like Colleen purposefully makes us feel so warm on the inside with her books and then you get that “emotional damage” meme come up in a snap. I hate how much I love these books because of the PTSD each character in her books has. This woman needs to chill out and give us a break for once. God only knows what awaits us in It Starts With Us!! Love you Colleen!!!
Absolutely love this book, sat down on a Sunday morning and had it finished by that evening. I loved the characters in the way the story built with the anticipation.
I literally sobbed for 4 classes in school over this book it is a must read, best book I’ve ever read
Finding myself more than halfway through the book bored and feeling let on by the mystery of what “it” was. Took too long to reveal the past.
Amazing book. Did not disappoint. Kept me on my toes wanting more. Ugly love made me ugly cry🥺❤️
This book is literally the best book I’ve ever read in my life. I felt so much emotion. Pain, anger, hopefulness, and happiness. It’s one of those books you just can’t quit reading until it’s finished and then you’re distraught because it is finished. 10/10 recommend!!!!
Such a great book.
One of the best books I’ve ever read!
Just read it. Read all her books.
I can’t begin to express how much I enjoyed this book. I absolutely loved Tate, she is the type of main character that it’s so easy to empathize with and fall in love with. Unraveling Miles throughout the novel was absolutely heart wrenching. I physically couldn’t put the book down. So so in love with this book!!
I absolutely loved this, really brought out all the emotions

this is another fantastic book by Colleen Hoover. A beautiful love story.
Great book. Like it very much. I had it done in one night
This book had me crying but good tears. It was spicy and I always wanted to know what would come next. I flee through it and it doesn't surprise me, Colleen Hoover is the best author that I would recommend to anyone.
One of the best books i've read, love it, had me in so many emotions. Incredible.
Loved this book, I had been looking for something fun and easy to read and this book was perfect.
loved this book!! I just wish we got more from Miles. It felt like we only really got to see Tates pov the whole book until like the last couple chapters where we finally see how Miles feels about this whole situationship. I was a great book and you should give a read.
Really enjoyed the past and present POVs, and it was the perfect amount of emotion and spice!
This book is worth reading, very nice. Made me emotional.
My heart goes to this book!
My favorite book ever. Need I say more?
Wowwwww...couldn’t put this book down. Read it in 1 day. Amazing
Loved, loved, loved, couldn’t put this book down!
the book wasn’t terrible but felt very overhyped. tate has no backbone and was not a likeable character. many people said that this story does not follow tate, as a main character and i agree. this is a story about a throuple in a way and it makes it hard to empathize. you could save your money and go onto wattpad and read a story that’s relatively the same, just with more spelling mistakes. there were some enjoyable parts but all in all felt very corny. i may try out some of her other books to give her another chance but if they all follow the same scheme then i am not a fan.
I cannot even describe how beautiful this novel is. I am left utterly speechless. It was beautiful, heart-rendering, life changing all at the same time. I have felt a similar pain to Miles, wondering if I could ever love someone. This novel captivated me, and lured me in. To Colleen Hoover, thank you. All the beautiful moments are worth the ugly love.
This is my second book of Colleen Hoover and i was disappointed. This book is very addictive, like the style of writing too. Recommend 10/10 don’t hesitate!
This is my second book I’ve read by this author. Like the first (It Ends With Us) I finished it in less than a day. I couldn’t put it down. 10/10
this book broke me in ways i never knew i could be broken
Honestly, I was going through a rough patch in my own life which lead me to picking up a CoHo book, and it was by far the best decision I’ve made. The writing was so detailed and structured in a way that isn’t only touching but very telling of each characters thoughts and perspectives. Books like these I wish there were more of. Something was simply different about this book than the others for me, it made me feel like I was looking forward to something after work and ending the day. I’m typing this up, eyes swollen, at 3:33 AM. Might just be sleep deprived, but I would marry this book if it were a person. 100/10, loved it so much I cannot explain through words. Also, the names “Tate” and “Miles” are so cute, liked them more than other book character names. Thank you for this masterpiece Colleen Hoover, I wish you great luck for your upcoming books, thank you for getting me out of a reading slump. 🙏
Like so so so so so good, couldn’t put it down and finished in less than two days. Anything Colleen Hoover is a must read… especially this one :)
As an ER nurse myself I LOVED this. I laughed. I cried. I couldn’t put it down.
This book took over my life for a week. It cannot wait to re read it!
I’ve never been a reader. This is the first book I’ve ever finished in less than three days. This book is so good that it sealed the deal, I am a reader.😊
If you wanna cry and go through a wave of emotions then read this book. At times I was just screaming about the characters. Wanting to throw my phone but at the same time I couldn’t stop reading. This book sums up everything emotion with go through with love and grief. It’s tremendously heart wrenching and heart warming.
This book is the literal emotions of falling in love. Loving, hating, crying...I did everything. I even came up with the song for a perfect score to make me cry more. I love! I love! I LOVE.
When Tate meets Miles, she falls madly in love with him. But Miles is broken and he can’t ever love her ... he only wants sex. His rules are: she can’t ask about his past and he can’t give her a future. Tate agrees because she believes that he’ll change his mind and fall in love with her. This book just broke my heart! I wanted to hate Miles because he treated Tate like crap ... but I just knew that he did it to protect his heart because he had been hurt badly in his past. Ms Hoover sure knows how to drag you through the mud before you find out the whole story ... she’s really good at that. I laughed, I hated, I got mad, I swooned and I cried ... boy, did I cry. An absolutely amazing book!
I adored this book. I thought it was going to be a cheesy love story which I would have loved regardless, but it had depth. I loved how she made the past and present come together. I absolutely loved this book.
This book is one of the best books I've ever read. It's so emotional and deep and just wonderful. Even though I wasn't a fan of the names of the characters, the characters themselves were awesome! This was a beautiful book and a great read for people who love romance.
Hard to put down! Love colleens writing style; I'm hooked! Book was a pleasure to read. Can't wait for the movie!

This book was so well written and Colleen Hoover has easily become a new favorite of mine.
This was such an amazing book! I really love how the author rlly made a deep love between the two characters. The book might have been a bit too graphic tho…
Her books are perfect
I just CAN NOT put Colleen Hoover’s books down!!!! Once you start reading you can’t wait to find out what happens next! Love all of her stories.
I read this book straight through. Colleen Hoover’s writing is so clever and beautifully constructed. I loved reading this book.
This was honestly the best book ever!! It made me cry, it made me laugh, it made me smile and it made me happy. Honestly the best book I’ve ever read before. This book teaches you a lot especially seeing things and understanding thing from others people POV.
Great Book! Awesome read. Kept me interested for the longest time. Must read for sure!!!!
Wow wow wow ! This book was incredible! The title is exactly what it is. This book made me so emotional and it’s steamy. It was so well written. What a great book
This is a good book if you were in a reading fog for a while. The book is good. There’s a twist I didn’t see coming. However, the characters did annoy me a little.
I almost wanted to hate Miles lol
It’s 2:30 in the morning and I finished this book in a day. A must read!!
Great character development- took a turn I didn’t expect
This story is beautiful. Her best book.
One of the best books I’ve ever read. It was a whirlwind journey from start to finish. I can’t recommend this one enough! A masterpiece.
10/10 would definitely recommend
Incredible. Absolutely incredible.
It made me feel emotional. Usually books don’t do that for me. I was greatly impressed while reading this book.
Good story, too much explicit sex.
I finished the book in just a couple days. Liked the book but liked some of her others better
I enjoyed her other books more.
Nothing will ever beat It Ends With Us, but this is my second runner up! The chemistry was so intense I could feel it physically and the twist was so unexpected. Highly recommend!
This is the third book I’ve read from CH and I just finished boohooing through the characters problems. What a beautiful story. CH has a way of making the reader fall in love with the characters as if they are truly real. 10/10
I can’t put into words why I love this book so much. Thank you for writing something this amazing
Literally one of my favorite books EVER. My favorite of hers so far.
This book makes you feel all the emotions. Absolutely love.
Great book !! Gives you all the feelings. Sad, anger, and happiness. Colleen is so descriptive it feels like you’re there. Great writing.
Could not put this down such a great romance novel with an interesting plot line
I am late to the Colleen Hoover train but I’m so glad to be on board now. This was the first book of hers I read and I knew I was hooked. So many emotions and I did not want to put it down!
It’s simply the best book i’ve ever read.
Excellent book, I’m speechless I definitely recommend this for everyone to reed.
I couldn’t wait to read it all!

This was such an amazing book, I felt every emotion. Colleen Hoover outdid herself once again.
I don’t know what it is about Colleen’s writing but it just totally captivates the reader. I literally couldn’t put it down. This is the second book of hers, and I finished both in a day! This is a beautiful story of life, loss and love.
Added bc c. I Kk mm/2
Amazing book trigger warning of you are a loss parent
An absolute must read! Highly recommend, I read this book in a day, it was exciting and emotional couldn’t put it down!
I think high school me would have loved this book… just felt very predictable. The story line is good, just think it’s for a younger crowd. Im 26 for reference :)
Colleen is so gifted.
It’s alright, i had to force myself to read it until I couldn’t, very intense but boring at the same time, nothing kept me like it wanted to read, writing style confused me a little but I got used to it, not my favorite, Colleen Hoover definitely did better
Literally could not stop reading it !
I read this book within 2 days. Definitely recommend. I wish there was more!
Loved this book
I don’t think I have ever read a book so fast. It was my first by Colleen. But oh my. Amazing. So so good. Im on to buy the next !!
Love coming to fruition and ending with a eye watering love story ending. Very good book !
