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.
I’m pretty sure this is what Colleen Hoover says when she writes her books.
Everyone needs a little Mortal Kombat action. But seriously she ripped my soul out.
I may have also been doing this.
Seriously though, you can’t help but to love Miles & Tate. Tate doesn’t put up with much BS, but there’s something about Miles that pulls her to him. Miles is really closed off, and fighting some serious demons from his past. He doesn’t think he deserves any kind of happiness after what happened.
I enjoyed seeing these two banter with each other. Miles takes himself way too seriously, and Tate is able to bring him out of his shell a little. Seeing into Miles Archer’s past pulls at your hearstrings. You also see how in love he once was. It’s hard seeing that Miles with the one that we see currently. The tension between Miles & Tate is perfect. There are some steamy scenes, but it’s not all “wow, in your face.” It portrays more than what these characters are trying to do with each other, that’s for sure.
I know this review doesn’t make much sense, but I don’t want to give too much away. I freaking loved it, and if it doesn’t bring tears to your eyes, I don’t see how you can be human.
Awestruck applause is what Colleen Hoover deserves with this book. It’s absolutely amazing. This is definitely a 6 star book!
