My Swoon for this week comes from:

Ugly Love

Colleen Hoover

First - The Blurb:

When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t 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.

Second - The Swoon:

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. His lips against mine feel like everything. Like living and dying and being reborn, all at the same time.

Having recently read Maybe Someday and absolutely loving it, I couldn't wait to read another one of Colleen's books. Did Ugly Love meet my exceptions? Heck, yes!

Deeply emotional!
Ugly Love is a story which shows how easily ones faith in love can be shattered, but that with the right person, those pieces can be put back together again and the faith restored. 

“Ugly love becomes you. Consumes you. Makes you hate it all. Makes you realize that all the beautiful parts aren't even worth it. Without the beautiful, you'll never risk feeling the ugly. So you give it all up. You give it all up. You never want love again, no matter what kind it is, because no type of love will ever be worth living through the ugly love again.” 
... Miles

“You're looking at me like you fell in love with me."
... Tate
"I didn't fall in love with you. I flew.” 
... Miles

* * *

“Whoever coined the phrase, I love you to death obviously never experienced the kind of love Tate and I share. If that were the case, the phrase would be I love you to life. Because that’s exactly what Tate did. She loved me back to life.” 
... Miles

If you're a Colleen Hoover fan, then this is one you won't want to miss.

My Rating: 5 out of 5
