Rezension bezieht sich auf: Ugly Love: A Novel (Kindle Edition)
Tate (who is obviously a girl ☺ the first few minutes I thought Colleen was now writing m/m romances!) has just moved in with her Pilot brother Corbin in San Francisco. She's glad to live with him, that way she can save up for her own place while she's working as a nurse and going to school to get another nursing degree.

Across the hall from her brother lives Miles.

Miles with no Smiles.
He's friends with her brother and also a pilot.

The way they meet is really funny .... but kind of sad too...

There's this huge immediate attraction between Miles and Tate. Well at least it's on Tate's side. She can't read him at all. But he seems to be looking at her a lot.

For whatever reason Miles doesn't want anything serious - well - that's not really the surprising thing - most guys are like that. But Miles asks only 2 things of Tate - to basically not fall in love with him and expect a HEA and to not ask about his past.

>>Don't ask about my past, and never expect a future.<<

His past.

The book is told from both POV's - but where Tate is telling us what happens in the present - Miles tells us what happened six years ago. Six years ago when he met the love of his life - Rachel.

He fell in love with her in their last year of high school - but unfortunate coincidences make it very hard for them to be together...

And whatever happened six years ago is the reason for Miles being and acting like he is and does.

But of course their attraction is way too strong to resist...as long as Tate keeps following his rules they can have this 'thing' for a while....

>>He tightens his grip on my neck . . . and then he kills me. Or he kisses me. I can't tell which, since I'm pretty sure they would feel the same.<<

And even though Tate knows she's having this going-nowhere-fling with him - she's still secretly full of hope that he might change his mind - and if he doesn't, it's still better to have this amazing person for as long as she can, than to never have him at all.

WHAT WiLL HAPPEN TO TATE & MILES???
WHAT HAPPENED SiX YEARS AGO??
WiLL THERE BE A HEA???
WiLL THERE BE A CLiFFHANGER???

NOPE . . .
I'm not telling you ☺
I don't want to spoil too much . . .
__________________________

I REALLY LOVED THE BOOK!

This was such a beautiful & moving & sexy story!

Told from both perspectives - but in different times - that was something completely new. I liked it. I didn't think I would at first - but the mood that Miles created with his words was just so sad and beautiful.

Not only did I cry for the last 25% of the book, but I think I started crying the first time Miles starts telling his story. Nothing bad was happening and still you just knew that there had to be something - there had to be some kind of major thing that happened to him and you just felt so bad for him all through the book. Ok - sometimes you might have wanted to slap him too for not saying - Eff it - it's been six years, whatever happened, I should've gotten over it, or at least learnt to live with it....
But we don't really want to slap his beautiful face!

The way Miles 'writes' in those six-years-ago scenes is just so poetically amazing - reminded me a bit of poetry-slamming Will from Colleen's older books. I loved it!
He puts soo many feelings into his words. And they are really simple words or sentences sometimes, like the diary of a 8-year-old. But that's exactly what makes them so special, so full of emotion.
a little example:

I close the door.
It's the saddest door I've ever had to close

I liked the setting too - I'm a fan of San Francisco & San Diego ☺

I think this was really one of those rare perfect Romances.
It had everything a good book needs.
LOTS of feelings - funny moments - sexy moments - moving moments...

And it had this special extra person every novel needs. Cap - an 80 year old elevator-button-pusher who lives in their building. He's the one Tate goes to when she needs someone to talk to. Because Miles obviously doesn't talk to her.

UGLY LOVE was an amazingly beautiful & moving Romance. Be sure to stock up on tissues!

Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Ugly Love: A Novel (Kindle Edition)
In "Ugly Love" Miles and Tate decide to start a friendship with benefits. Well, without the friendship. Basically they decide to just go for the hot stuff. Tate is all for it until she notices that the object of her desire is pretty darn loveable. But shockingly, he has sworn off love FOREVER. So what are they going to do?

Well. I was lured into reading this by the reviews of other book bloggers who all loved this book and claimed it ripped their hearts out. In order for that to happen though, the reader has to care about the characters, which I didn't. Honestly, these characters are cardboard-cutouts deluxe. Hoover seems to think that making a character cry every twenty pages gives them personality. Shocker - it doesn't. It's just annoying that everyone breaks down crying in this novel, especially Tate for basically no reason. Miles, I get, he's still grief-struck and stuff but Tate's random emotional outbursts annoyed the hell out of me. Had I been Miles, I wouldn't have to want any part of her either.

The rest of the characters are so cliché, it hurts. We have the overprotective brother Corbin, who beats the hell out of everyone who even dares to look at his sister. He seems to exist solely for that purpose and isn't home in 99% of the cases, possibly on quests to get laid. Or just "away" in order to give Tate and Miles some quality lonesome time. Then we have Dillon, who cheats on his wife, is super-sleazy and gross and hits on everything that moves. Obviously there's a dramatic scene in the novel where he gets told to lay his hands off of Tate. Because yeah, every dude in this novel wants to bone Tate. If he doesn't, he's probably just a plot-device character or eighty years old.

Lastly we have Ian and Cap, Miles' best friend and the old dude that manages the elevator. Both are just used to make a point and in Tate's case justify the laziness of the author. Tate doesn't have a social life that's worth mention because Hoove didn't feel like wasting time on side-plots. So she gets to befriend an 80-year-old. Alright. Every single one of these characters is so boring that I don't even feel like talking about them. The protagonists are the only characters that actually play a role in this novel. (Characters 1/5)

Sadly, the only role they play is their part during intercourse. I thought I was reading a romance novel here, or am I mistaken? This is straight up smut, every fifty pages. One might even say it's pwp smut! (pwp = plot? what plot?) Exactly two things happen in this novel. Tate and Miles bone, and Miles backs away because he still loves his ex-girlfriend whom he doesn't want to talk about, for the life of it. I'm sorry, but if you're going to be so dramatic about not wanting to fall in love EVER, you're losing a lot of credibility when said ex-girlfriend that broke you, left you when you were 18. That man is 24, claims to have fallen deeply in love back then (come on!) and is now so iffy about everyone he ever dates, it's just annoying.
He's a Gary Stu. He's got ice-blue eyes that are so beautiful, you can't take it. He's tall and muscly (when does he have the time to work out wtf), and after not having sex for six years, he's still a sex god. The guy out of every 14-year-old's wet dream fantasy. I can't, I just can't deal with this crap. The development of the storyline just made me cry and weep, and not because I was emotionally affected, but because it was so stupid. Cheesy to no ends, completely predictable and where the hell was the plot twist that I was promised? (Plot 0/5)

Another thing that massively bothered me is the shifts in the point of view. Hoover is by no means a first-time-author but it feels like she is one. Every chapter switches in POV to justify the horrible, horrible past that poor Miles had to go through. This just makes me think she's a bad writer. If you want to include flashbacks in your novel, one tip: don't. Because this whole thing made me care even less about annoying Tate and root really hard for Rachel and Miles.
I'd rather have read about their love story because it was a thousand times more interesting than the mess that is the present tense story. I really didn't care and the only reason I continued reading was to find out more about Rachel. Also, I have never encountered so many grammatical errors in the first pages of a novel. It's sad that it doesn't say who edited this because I'd like to make sure to never read something edited by that person ever again. I'm cringing. (Writing 1/5)

Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

5.0 von 5 Sternen Gefühlschaos der Extraklasse!, 10. August 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Ugly Love: A Novel (Kindle Edition)
Ich bin ein großer Fan von Colleen Hoover und auch dieses Buch hat meine hohen Erwartungen in keinster Weise enttäuscht. Sie ist einfach eine tolle Schriftstellerin, die es versteht, von der ersten Seite an, den Leser mit ihren Worten auf eine Reise mitzunehmen. Die wiederum ist viel zu schnell zuende, weil auf jeder Seite so viel Neues und Spannendes wartet, dass man gar nicht anders kann, als das Buch in einem Rutsch durchzulesen.

Wie bei ihren anderen Büchern auch, handelt es sich bei Ugly Love um eine Liebesgeschichte. Und wieder steht der Liebe zweier Menschen etwas im Weg, das es zu überwinden gilt.
Die Thematik ist hier recht schwer verdaulich und hat mich gegen Ende echt mitgenommen, sodass ich an mancher Stelle wirklich Schwierigkeiten hatte, weiter zu lesen.
Wie der Titel schon verrät, geht es um die Seite der Liebe, die zu Tage tritt, wenn es nicht bei der romantischen, wunderbaren, kraftvollen und kreierenden Liebe bleibt, sondern sie sich in etwas verkehrt, das einen bis ins Mark leiden lässt, einem die Kraft zum Atmen raubt, und jede Hoffnung auf Zufriedenheit nimmt - eine alles verzehrende furchtbare Liebe...

Und auch wenn es zuweilen wirklich harte Kost ist, möchte ich keine Seite dieses Buches missen, denn Colleen Hoover hat es wiedermal geschafft, eine wunderbare und gleichzeitig so grausame Geschichte so zu umspielen, dass der Leser am Ende das Buch mit einem höchst zufriedenen Grinsen übers ganze Gesicht zuklappen kann.

Vielen, vielen Dank für diese wunderbar atemberaubende Reise des absoluten Gefühlschaos! Ich freue mich schon auf das nächste Buch dieser hervorragenden Autorin!

5.0 von 5 Sternen You made ugly love wonderfull!, 8. August 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Ugly Love: A Novel (Kindle Edition)
Dear Colleen,

What have you done?

Every time someone is asking why I read that much I have a hard time explaining my addiction; you however have nailed it. UGLY LOVE is why I read. UGLY LOVE is the kind of romance I am not ashamed but proud reading. UGLY LOVE is everything I am looking for in a book.

It made me CRY!

IT made me DREAM!

You made CRAVE for more MILES and TATE!

I do not cry when I read. Crying for a fictional character is ridiculous. Well until Colleen Hoover! This is her second book that made me cry!
I am following her posts on Facebook. She is a great person fun and so normal! I was expecting this book since I saw the picture showing the End on her screen... and then I was disappointed when I read the plot... I was thinking what that is a girl spending time with a guy who obviously doesn't want to love the girl. I thought CRAP what is Colleen doing this is not what I want to read from you.

But I trust that what she writes is great so I preordered it and got excited and got it the day before my birthday: It was my present to myself! Well, no, it was Colleens present for me!

So the story is NOT about a p**** that is unwilling to love; it is about a wonderful man and a sweet woman, sometimes too sweet, but they are amazing together.

What I enjoyed most is that I understood the feelings, the environment. The story was amazingly well paced, not too fast, nor too slow. It is so close to perfect...

The story of now is mostly told by Tate, the story of then by Miles. The way Miles part is told can be strange at first, but it fists his memories so well...

I love the characters Colleen Hoover creates! All of them are so real, so different, so amazing!

So there is only one thing to say: thank you! Thank you so much! Please continue writing a lot, fast I want something about Ian. I want more of your words, of your talent!

I hope you will enjoy reading as much as I did. MBTM

3.0 von 5 Sternen Drama Baby, 16. Oktober 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Ugly Love: A Novel (Kindle Edition)
Hmmmpf, eigentlich hatte ich mir mehr von dem Buch versprochen.
Dem Vorschautext zufolge hatte ich einen starken Mann(=Pilot) erwartet und keinen deprimierten Waschlappen. Insgesamt war mir die Handlung zu mager, dafür gab es umso mehr Drama.
Im Prinzip dreht sich alles um die Frage, warum er sich gefühlsmäßig so abschottet. Warum will er sich nicht mehr auf die Liebe einlassen, sondern nur noch auf rein körperliche Beziehung ohne Verpflichtung. Ich habe mich zwischenzeitlich echt gefragt, weshalb ist er nicht selbst auf die Idee gekommen ist, einen Therapeuten aufzusuchen? Ich konnte seine Denkweise einfach nicht nachvollziehen. Das Ende war auch schnell und lieblos dahingestoppelt.
Im Gegensatz zu anderen Büchern die Friends-mit-Benefits zum Thema haben, ist dieses hier überhaupt nicht lustig. Auch die Sexszenen sind zu trocken geraten. Schade um das verschenkte Potential. Die anderen Bücher von Colleen Hoover haben mir alle besser gefallen.

During reading I just was

falling
falling
falling...

...for

Every sentence shows emotions right from the start. And not only by its meaning but also by its style.
And there are a lot of emotions... and you can feel every single one.

Definitely the best book from Colleen Hover. Thank you for that wonderful work <3
