Number-one New York Times best-selling author Colleen Hoover returns with a new heart-wrenching love story.
When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she doesn't think it's 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.

... waiting to be awake ... ... dreaming in colors ... ... smiling every day!
Although it's a good emotional and rough story, well written, after 50% of the book, I'm afraid I didn't like the most mercurial important character in the book. Yes I had hope it would be ok, but...
I don't understand him, so selfish!
You know, you're not alone Miles! Some people actually lost more than one love by accident or else and they moved on without leaving a wreck behind. Can't think of one good thing about Miles. He was smarter when he was 18... A man this big and so self center. I understand he's hurt but exaggerating words and silent, silence but deafening... duh
You're smart enough to know, your friends worry about you but you can't care less about them.
Ian was so good to you, even Corbin was taking care of you and most of all, Tate! How could you torture her so and not Rachel, who left you?
Are you aware they had feelings too and maybe they were hurt like you, before they met you?
Everybody hurts... sometimes.
Loved Cap! What an amazing and wise old man! And I got to say that Tate saved a man who doesn't deserved to be saved at that moment.
All through the book, too much information about the "six years earlier" and I wasn't impressed. I wanted to know more about the present and the development and interaction between Miles and Tate.
I wanted more about the realization of Miles almost throwing his whole life away! His story was tragic, ok! But there's no hope, so why live and let others feel pain?
If you loved Maybe Someday, this isn't enough and doesn't come close.
I felt the ugliness not in the story, but in the character...
Yes...I want to hear all the inner dialogue again.
Hints of sarcasm.
I liked the scenes that were in the present.
Did I say how much I love her books!
Maybe I'm just over the whole broken soul dragging his heart around for hours of listening torture to be miraculously healed by some chick hopping into bed with him. It's just so dumb. The story line is weak and is mainly filled with fluff of the same agonizing dilema over and over and over and over and all they do is have sex that just gets monotonous. The dialogue is mainly in their heads so very little interaction...aside from the sex....which wasn't that good.
As for the narrators...Grace Grant was really choppy at times in her reading and Deacon Lee isnt always the strongest narrator but in his defense his character was pretty weak so what are you going to do?
Yes!! The storyline is incredible and the narrators brought it to life.
Miles. Because his heart is like no other.
They both did a fabulous job so both were my favorite.
When Miles went to Rachel for forgiveness and realized he truly loved Tate.
This storyline is brilliant. Miles had my emotions all over the place. Sometimes I wanted to smack him but other times you could feel that he lost something he once loved. But what, we have to read to find out? Tate had me confused to why she would put herself into this situation. I understand why so many people didn't like Tate because at times I didn't. She is smart and knows what she wants in life and not afraid to go after it. The relationship with Miles is something I can understand because sometimes true love happens to you and all your common sense just flies out the door. You would give into a uncommon proposition just to have a little piece of something that will not go anywhere and leave to heartbreak. This is an emotional story but to me Maybe Someday is my favorite. I didn't cry in this story but I was sad. I cried in all of Colleen Hoover's other stories. I still truly loved this story but it isn't like this author's previous stories. There has been a shift to more adult theme in this story which I think makes the story unbelievable. With all the new adult books that are becoming hot and steamy, I think this is why this story fell short from this author's pervious works. Maybe pressure to give in to the new adult theme. I still give this book a 5 star rating because it is worth reading and it is brilliant every way.
Female narrator was fantastic
The male narrator was way to effeminate and made the character come off as gay
Grace Grant was excellent as always. I just wish the would've picked a better narrator for Miles. I almost didn't think I would finish because his voice is so whiney. I did however skip a lot of the Miles parts.
The best experience was the dual narration. I like how Myles Archers story gradually unfolded leading up to his present situation with Tate.
I feel that both narrators did a great job narrating. I just wasn't particularly satisfied with the presentation of the male narrator (no offense), something off about the voice.
This book left me on edge at points,which is a good thing. Emotionally, toward the end when we finally find out the issue with Myles is where my heart broke, but it turns out for the best.
Overall, worth the listen. Great story.
Keatyn's Mommy is s Book-a-holic
I've loved Colleen Hoover's other books so much but this one just didn't quite hit the mark for me. Maybe it was because I got the audio version of this book.
The story unfolds slowly as Miles tells his story of why he can't love all the while not telling Tate. I think if they talked more about the reasons he was so shut off from love it would have been a better read.
I felt Tate just didn't love herself enough to walk away sooner. Loved big brother Corbin as overprotective as he was.
Wow, what emotions... Happiness, tenderness, sadness, heartbreak, love, devastation. they we all present. I cried tears of joy and of sadness.
Thank you for such a beautiful story of life, death, and being reborn.
Of all the books Coleen Hoover has written this is by far the worst. The audiobook was well done but the plot is thin at best and piled fool of all the stereotypes I ha thought left to the history of forgotten rom com tropes
"Ms Hoover does it again!"
So after getting my emotions together I can finally write a review on this book.
Ahhhh the feels, the feels.
I absolutely love Ms Hoover and in my humble little opinion she can do no wrong, however I know that this new book of hers has had a mixed bag of reviews, some hated it and some loved it, I fall in the latter category, I loved it a lot!!
The story is told in 2 different POV a little like Maybe Someday However the male POV, Miles (I shall get to him later) is telling the story from a different time in the past.
Tate has moved into her brothers apartment and is training to be a nurse, she hasn't got time for herself, let alone a relationship, and likes it like that thank you very much!
Miles lives across the hall, he is a pilot, and Yummy!!
Anyway Miles won't /can't have relationship either, in true CoHo style the 2 of them meet, but then decide to come to an arrangement to suit them both.........sex!
So they have a "friends with benefits" relationship but Miles will not open up to Tate, and she starts to feel more than friends.
I won't give any spoilers in this review but oh boy I was NOT expecting the story to unfold as it did.
My little heart was shattered in a thousand tiny pieces, the characters are so strong and even the back characters are fab, you just wait till you meet Cap!
She is still a brilliant writer and one of my favourite authors, I ♡ this book.
A big 6 ♡ read.
