While I was reading the book the entire time I was all like “Eh, another love story with sex, kissing… Like Fifty Shades of Grey but teenier version and without the BDSM aspect. But yeah sure I keep on reading it” in my head. But this book is worth your time to read.
Words to describe this book:
This kind of book is worth some stars. I guarantee you that once you started reading it you don’t want to close and put it down because every chapter is intriguing, full of mystery, and you just want to continue reading it and find it out. This is not like the other books that I read, like “Yeah, I know what’s gonna happen at the end of the book” but no, every words, scenes from all the chapters will make you intrested to find out more on what’s gonna happen next and once you found out, you will fell in love with it. It’s very heartbreaking and you will definetely keep this book.
I like it that in this book the POV of the main two characters, Miles and Tate is connected to the previous chapters (well it should be) it’s totally moving. You know that there is something up between the two minds of the characters. Miles who’s afraid of loving someone again because of what happened to his past and Tate who’s trying to figure out about him and that’s why she’s willing, agreeing to his rules (which is: don’t ask about the past and never expects a future. Just casual sex, friends with benefits) and doesn’t want to give up to the only one love she thought she never experience with someone else before. It’s interesting how these two minds connect throughout the story by interacting with each other physically (because they are really attracted to each other) and how they realized that they both want more, that they really need each other and how they are trying to solve “how” despite of what happen to Miles terrible past. It’s crazy because they both really want more from each other but Miles’ past holds the willing to admit it and Tate is trying her best to not show him she’s really hurt (well, because of Miles’ rules) and she’s all like “Hey, tell me everything that’s happened I will sacrifice my feelings for you because I love you so much so please let me in”. Until Miles goes back to his past (because he’s being guilty now and he just don’t know what to do anymore with Tate… He is falling for her too) and then finally moved on because he finally realized that it’s only his past that’s holding him back to love someone again and that he also deserves to be happy with life and he found that happiness again with Tate and that’s what happened at the end of the book. A happy ending.
Ok, I don’t know much about relationship because I never had a serious one before but I know what love is and it’s a very dangerous and scary thing to do, but for me, what are the things you are willing to do for the sake of love? How much pain can you take for the sake of love? How many sacrifices are you willing to take and give for the sake of love? Me? Everything. Why? Because of love I became stupid. Because of love I let myself hurt by someone who didn’t love me back. Because of love I lower my pride. Because of love I became crazy. And because of love I became stronger, that no matter what I experienced or felt in the past, I should and have to remind myself that I deserve to be happy, that I deserve to be love by someone, that I deserve so much better than the pain, hurt or whatever I had experienced from the past. You have to learn from it, you have to grow from it and be wiser. But it’s your choice if to do the same thing again or move on. Let it the past pass, a moment, a history and learn from it. And like this book this is about finding real true love and real true happiness despite from whatever happen in the past and the two characters did it eventually and they are happier and stronger than ever before by leaning and having strength to each other. Ugly Love is one of the beautiful masterpieces ever created. I fell in love with it and you should too!
By the way Nick Bateman got the role to bring Miles Archer comes to life!
