Publisher's Summary

Number-one New York Times best-selling author Colleen Hoover returns with a new heart-wrenching love story.
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.

If you could sum up Ugly Love in three words, what would they be?

Tragic, Hopeful, and Healing!

What other book might you compare Ugly Love to and why?

There are many romances out there...this is a good one...based on a tragedy...

Which scene was your favorite?

When Miles finally went and visited Rachel....

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did!

Any additional comments?

** Some Spoilers **

This is the second baby related Tragedy I have listened too in the last 7 days...and I know it rips most peoples hearts out....Mine already has been ripped that is not what gets me...I have experienced this...and no matter how it happens...and it happens HORRIBLY in this story...its the way people recover that gets to me...I know MIles was hurting...but he handled his grief so badly....I feel so much for can not tell someone how to grieve...but he really did put himself and Tate through sheer torture...I was so proud of him when he finally visited Rachel and saw her happy...he could finally let go...Miles is a rare one...he was set to be a provider, husband and daddy from the get go...and when it was taken from him so abruptly it basically shattered his young soul!

Tate was smart..she knew she couldn't take much more, so she let him go..even though it was painful as heck for her, she knew this was something he had to figure out on his own..he would not let her she backed off...This is a true example of loving something and setting it free...becauses it did come back to her and was meant to be hers!

Oh and Thank Goodness for Cap...HE WAS AWESOME!!!

I want authors to stop writing their characters so young...24yrs old is a baby to me...would it hurt you to write people in the 30s-40s every now and then..I mean KA does it...and her books fly off the me this would have been a more believable story with older characters...but I understand...the whole first love..forbidden..and heartache aspect of the story..Overall it was a good kept me engaged...I only shed a handful of tears...and they were more for happiness because Tate got her man...and she helped him heal...

Female Narration Was Great...Male Narration, just ok...he came across as creepy some of the time..and we needed more broody and alpha!

NIce Book club listen...I am interested in more from CH..she did keep me up till 6am!! lol

Everybody hurts... sometimes

Although it's a good emotional and rough story, well written, after 50% of the book, I'm afraid I didn't like the most mercurial important character in the book. Yes I had hope it would be ok, but...

I don't understand him, so selfish!

You know, you're not alone Miles! Some people actually lost more than one love by accident or else and they moved on without leaving a wreck behind. Can't think of one good thing about Miles. He was smarter when he was 18... A man this big and so self center. I understand he's hurt but exaggerating words and silent, silence but deafening... duh

You're smart enough to know, your friends worry about you but you can't care less about them.

Ian was so good to you, even Corbin was taking care of you and most of all, Tate! How could you torture her so and not Rachel, who left you?
Are you aware they had feelings too and maybe they were hurt like you, before they met you?

Everybody hurts... sometimes.

Loved Cap! What an amazing and wise old man! And I got to say that Tate saved a man who doesn't deserved to be saved at that moment.

All through the book, too much information about the "six years earlier" and I wasn't impressed. I wanted to know more about the present and the development and interaction between Miles and Tate.

I wanted more about the realization of Miles almost throwing his whole life away! His story was tragic, ok! But there's no hope, so why live and let others feel pain?

If you loved Maybe Someday, this isn't enough and doesn't come close.

I felt the ugliness not in the story, but in the character...
