I’ve loved everything Ms. Hoover has written. I’ve never met a book of hers that I didn’t
like love, so Ugly love was no exception. I set my alarm to go off at midnight and when I finally saw it hit my Kindle at 4:30 in the morning, I went pee, got some popcorn and started this much-anticipated story. This book was so damn good that I busted out laughing at 4:36am and I was only 1% into the book. By 80% I was holding my breath on the verge of tears and at 93% I was standing on my bed screaming I don’t want it to end!!! Everything in between was so good, like the cream filling of a Twinkie.
The story revolves around Tate and Miles. Tate is a 23yr old nursing student who moves in with her brother Corbin to finish her Masters in nursing. She stumbles upon her brother’s friend, Miles, the first night she moves in passed out drunk in front of their apartment door. Miles is an emotional zombie, he went through something long ago that hardened his heart to love and pretty much any feelings period. Until Tate. They make this stupid agreement of sex only (this NEVER EVER works) with two rules…
” Don’t ask about my past,” he says firmly. ” And never expect a future.”
Poor Tate should’ve run for the hills at this point. Women are too emotional for this type of set up.
I fell in love with every single character of this story. Every. Single. One. They each played a significant role in bringing this full circle. Miles is so broken that you want to hug him over and over. My heart hurt for him the entire book. Cap was the comic relief. Corbin is the coolest brother ever (ok, maybe not EVER those Maddox boys are hard to beat). Dillon is despicable. Ian is a good friend. Rachel *sigh* I just can’t. I love them all and I will probably read this over and over again like I did with Twilight and Fifty Shades…oh and Fixed Trilogy. Some love stories just make you feel so good you can’t get enough. 10 out of 5 stars…it was that damn good!
