Ugly Love Book Summary

Overview:

Tate Collins recognizes that she didn’t fall in love with airline pilot Miles Archer at first sight. Even if they were to consider themselves pals, they wouldn’t. There is no denying that Tate and Miles are attracted to one another. They understand they have the ideal situation once their desires are made clear. The only option left is sex because he doesn’t want love and she doesn’t have time for love. If Tate can follow the two guidelines Miles has for her, their arrangement might be surprisingly easy.

Do not inquire about the past.
Don’t count on the future.

They believe they can manage it but quickly come to the realization that they cannot.

Summary:

The 23-year-old Tate Collins, who works at a hospital and lives with her elder brother Corbin in his opulent condo, relocates from San Diego to San Francisco to seek a nursing degree. There is no Corbin when she moves in. He’ll arrive home later because he’s a pilot. She meets Cap, the amiable, aging elevator steward who ends up being her closest friend. On the elevator, she also encounters Dillon, a sleazy married man who wants to have a sexual encounter with her. When she arrives at Corbin’s place, just as she believes she is safe, she discovers a drunken man blocking the entrance and sobbing uncontrollably. As she tries to enter his flat, she contacts Corbin. To assist Tate, Corbin phones Miles, a buddy who lives across the hall. However, Corbin soon finds that Miles is actually the intoxicated man in the hallway. To enter the residence, Tate is instructed by Miles. She is aware that Corbin needs to trust this man because she tends to be very protective of Tate. As Miles sobs incoherently and calls for “Rachel,” Tate assists him in entering the flat. She goes to bed at last.

The following morning when she awakens, Miles confronts her. He wants to know what transpired between them since he is upset. He fears they may have hooked up. When Corbin gets home, Tate explains to Miles that they didn’t hook up and advises him to try being more polite to her. Tate is assisted in moving her possessions into the flat by Corbin and Miles. To start over, Miles reintroduces himself to Tate, but he doesn’t really speak to her as they move her belongings.

For Thanksgiving, Miles visits Tate and Corbin at their residence, and while Corbin is hanging lights, Miles slashes his hand on the ladder. Miles kisses her and warns her not to let him do it again after Tate sutures his hand. Late at night, they both find their way to the kitchen, where they settle their sexual tension. Tate can’t hope to find out Miles’s background or have a future with him, even though they will sleep together. Tate wants to establish her own rule as well, but at the moment she is at a loss for ideas.

She and Miles portray themselves as a couple having sex incognito, but Miles always ejects Tate afterward. Miles never texts or calls Tate when he is at work. Hoover depicts Miles’ perspective from six years ago as their relationship develops, or rather falls into the pattern of strong physical chemistry, copious amounts of sex, and finally heartbreak.

Miles is assigned to assist Rachel, a new student from Phoenix, Arizona, in finding Mr. Clayton’s English class during his senior year of high school. Miles notices Rachel’s stunning eyes and hair. He texts Ian to tell him she’s having his children after falling in love with her right away. Unfortunately, they learn that their parents are engaged to be married, and Miles believes that his father had an affair with Rachel’s mother Lisa when he was on business in Arizona.

Later, Miles’s dad admits that he and Miles’s mom had intended to get a divorce long before he began seeing Lisa, but they decided against it because Miles’s mom was sick and he wanted to be by her side. In order to avoid being discovered by their parents, Rachel and Miles carefully follow the rules of their relationship. Despite their agreement to refrain from having sex, Rachel becomes pregnant.

They notify their parents when she is finished and they have graduated, and they are upset with Miles. Miles stays with Rachel and doesn’t care. At the university Rachel wishes to attend, he applies for family housing, and they are accepted. Miles is more content than ever when Rachel gives birth to a boy they named Clayton after their English teacher. His father informs him that Miles has made him and his mother proud. Miles’ eyes are damaged by light on the way home from the hospital, and the automobile ends up in a lake. He has just enough time to save Rachel or the child. Although Rachel wants him to save Clayton, he really saves her.

She is enraged, and they are both overcome with grief over the death of their kid. They make an effort to be together despite their sadness and pain, but soon after, Rachel leaves Miles and writes that it is too difficult for her to stay with him. She always recognizes Clayton when she sees Miles. As a result, Miles isolates himself from love. His son would have turned six on the day he was sobbing on the ground outside Corbin’s apartment.

Tate senses that Miles is a kind man with a tragic past, but he won’t discuss it. The night they engage in unprotected sex and then he shuts the door and abandons her without warning, she feels terribly hurt. Miles is unhappy that Rachel became pregnant after he did it to her. Although they had an on-again, off-again relationship throughout the book, Miles behaves very much like an overbearing boyfriend.

After their intense unguarded sex scene, they go a while without speaking. When Miles discovers Tate studying with one of her male nursing pals, he enters Tate’s apartment and demands to know whether she is sleeping with him. Despite the fact that Miles is visibly upset by the prospect of Tate dating someone else, he continues to deny his desire to date Tate. Tate eventually expresses to Miles what she is experiencing, and Miles assures her that he was honest with her about his intentions. When Corbin walks in on Tate and Miles having a relationship, he is furious but eventually comes to terms with it. Tate believes Miles is opening up, but just when they’re about to make progress, he shuts down once more.

A few blocks away, Tate moved out into her own apartment. When she bids Miles farewell, he appears utterly indifferent and unaffected. After two weeks, Sarah has settled into her new home when Miles knocks on her door.

Miles resolves to see Rachel after receiving criticism from Ian and support from Cap. Chad is Rachel’s husband, and they have a daughter named Claire. She assures Miles that while she recognizes his emotions, they don’t have to rule his life. Miles asks Corbin for her address after realizing he’s missing Tate’s happiness, then shows there to share some of his past and sentiments.

Tate and Cap are flown up by Miles. Cap is flying for the first time. Miles returns after Cap exits the aircraft, hands Tate the key to his flat, and invites her to move in. After she accepts, he also makes a proposal to her. They are thrilled when she agrees.

After almost two years, Tate and Miles give birth to a girl they call Sam in honor of Cap’s real name, Samuel. When Miles sees and embraces Sam, he realizes that he is capable of love and genuine happiness once more. Prior to Sam, Miles had been concerned that he wouldn’t be able to manage to love another baby. Miles now has the family he always desired, and Tate is content.
