a045f20a73574b16e5ea9735a1d3742f

GOODREADS SUMMARY:

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.

MY BOOK REVIEW:

The whole intense love story of Miles and Tate just blew me away.
Cause from the first moment Ms.Colleen Hoover had made a post about her upcoming novel in all of her social media accounts, I just knew that I’m going to love this book, and according to her, of all the male characters that she has ever written, Miles Archer is the only one that made her so emotional that it truly made her cry while writing the novel.

However, it wasn’t actually in my plan to read it right away after it was published. But a few weeks after it was released, I’ve been seeing tons of top reviews about the book in Goodreads and in Facebook, stating that the story is just simply amazing. So it was a major influence for me to buy a copy. And as expected, it didn’t disappoint me at all. For it was so addictive to read.

As for the story, it’s definitely your typical kind of love story. There’s this guy who is so emotionally shattered and damaged; who is so afraid of love because of his past. And then there’s this girl who could wake up him from his nightmare, and show him the beauty of falling in love all over again. But what I like about the story of Miles and Tate was their intense and passionate emotions (which were described in such detail in the novel).

So how would I describe it?

I would say that Colleen Hoover had truly given each character the source of their emotions, so that as a reader, we can truly understand as to why they seem to be that way. Like Tate Collins, she seems to be an extraordinary type of person- smart, beautiful, and kind. But when it comes to love, she just tends to feel that like she’s still looking for the biggest spark and momentous moment. Little did she know that on her first day into living temporarily in her brother’s apartment, her life will never be the same. As for Miles Archer, he’s someone who has a haunting past; a young pilot who’s been living a meaningless life for the past six years, and being entirely and only committed to his work like there’s no tomorrow; it’s like living a life without any substance at all. Then everything started to change when he’d finally met Tate. For she was the shining beacon of his life who never gave up on him, even though she already knows that in the long run it might either shatter her, or give her the thing that she truly desire.

Moreover, Ms. Colleen Hoover did a marvelous job in writing such a passionate love story, because she made a typical story into something that is so unforgettable to all of its readers. And the song that was composed for this book is truly amazing. For it describes what Miles truly feels for Tate; a beautiful story for all the romantics out there.

That’s it for now, and till my next book review.

Thank you so much for reading. 🙂

It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover (Book Review) 


IT ENDS WITH US BY COLLEEN HOOVER is an unforgettable story that was obviously written in dedication to all the women who are fighting the same battle like its main character named Lily. Which is a reality ever since the old times. 


 

Honestly, it was kinda hard for me to express my emotions after reading this. For I have read almost all of Colleen Hoover’s novels. But this is so far the most mature and entirely different story from all of her other works. Why? For it is very realistic. Sure, at the beginning of the story it was so exciting and makes you feel so giddy reading its first few chapters but it’s much more than that. For its the kind of novel that would really make you think that if you were Lily. How would act if you were in her situation? Well, of course it’s so easy to say NO. However, it isn’t that simple especially when there are a lot of things that you would really have to consider. Well it’s a good thing that Colleen Hoover was able to pull it off in the end! By writing such very strong and empowering words that would inspire a lot of women to fight not just for justice but also for what is best for you and your love ones when you are in that kind of situation. Oh definitely worth reading all the way. 

Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover (Book Review)

urlWhy do I like this book so much aside from all those beautiful songs that were mentioned in the novel? Its because the words were so captivating, that I’m totally hooked, and I just can’t put it down! Reading every word of it just melts my heart away.

I may have read tons of stories, and most if it are under the romance genre. And sometimes love stories tends to make us believe in the perfect romance, fairy tales, and the happily ever after. But this novel is definitely not that kind of romance. I can’t say that its a hateful kind of romance, but I think that the way to describe it would be a confusing kind of romance.

The story was just kinda intense. You know that feeling that wrenches your heart out because its so painful? Ridge and Sydney are so perfect for one another; its just that their lives aren’t perfect for each other! So Frustrating! It may seemed kinda funny,but honestly, I hate the story and at the same time I love it. Colleen Hoover is definitely a one heck of a writer. I don’t know how she did it, but she was able to captivate each reader with all those addictive and beautiful words that you just can’t stop reading it. And you want to do it as fast as you can! Also, ever since I’ve reached halfway into the story, I’ve been wanting to put it down for its so full of dilemma, but its already too late for I was already hooked!

So here’s the thing. Which kind of love would you like to experience? The REALISTIC kind of love or the IDEAL one?
