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.
Oh my goodness!!!! WOW. WOW. WOW! Colleen Hoover did it once again! This book is so amazing...No.. no... this book was BEYOND amazing! What follows after reading a BEYOND amazing book? ...A BOOK HANGOVER ! ....But wait???? book hangover should happen AFTER reading , right? NOT in the MIDDLE of reading?!! Not possible? Well, that happened to me! Yes. YES.
What can I say about the characters? I LOVE BOTH OF THEM! Like love, love , love!! Though , Miles Archer is quite a jerk...but I can't dislike... or even hate him?! Why?? Well aside from he's really ...uhm hot?! Gosh ! he's a hot, gorgeous airline pilot...and he's super mysterious...and ...and... well, there's really something about him ...Argh! I dunno! All I can think about is.... I want Miles like Tate wants Miles! There. I said it.
Oh, you want proof? On Miles hotness ? Here's what Tate have to say:
"I'm staring at his stomach.
Stop staring at his stomach.
Oh my word, he has the V. Those beautiful indentations on men that run the length of their outer abdominal muscles, disappearing beneath their jeans as if the indentations are pointing to a secret bull's eye. "
------> Oh my! Do I love the human anatomy if described that way?!! Hell, yeah! No need to close my eyes...because I can clearly picture it?! Good lord!!
You want more?! I bet you do!
" ...he always smells so fantastically delicious, like he just stepped out of the shower and hasn't even towel dried yet. Oh, my God. "
----> YES. OH. MY. GOD.
See???!!! Miles can make fangirling your second language, ladies! Heehee! So, He got the "V" and he smells divine.. so what's wrong with him??? I hate to ruin your fantasy.. but Miles doesn't do love...relationships... you know, the works?And that rule?! Miles' rules:
"1. Don't ask about my past.
2. And never expect a future. "
Yeah bummer .. B-U-M-M-E-R, right? .... But not to Tate. In fact, she agreed! SHE. AGREED!
Argh! What the hell is wrong with you, Tate???! I was so frustrated. How can she say "okay" to that "arrangement" ???? Well, I should "dislike" her for that...but why , why??? My poor heart goes for Tate. Poor Tate. Waiting.... Falling desperately in love with someone ....who might not ever love her in return? Gosh. The million "feels" I had while reading this book! I feel like my heart's going to explode any minute?! The angst never stops. I cried . A lot. Miles + Tate = Me + bucket of tears!
" Love isn't always pretty, Tate. Sometimes you spend all your time hoping it'll eventually be something different. Something better. Then, before you now it, your'e back to square one, and you lost your heart somewhere along the way. "
Oh, I just love how Ms. Hoover crushed ..broke my heart into pieces. The later chapters... close to the end... I UGLY CRIED for this UGLY LOVE. It was beautiful and all those words Ms. Hoover had written? Will stay forever inside my heart.
" Ugly love becomes you. Consumes you. Makes you hate it all. Makes you realize that all the beautiful parts aren't even worth it. Without the beautiful, you'll never risk feeling this. You'll never risk feeling the ugly.So you give it up. You give it all up. You never want love again, no matter what kind it is, because no type of love will ever be worth living through the ugly love again. "
Overall, LOVE. LOVE. LOVE!
..... And Miles Archer???
"I didn't fall in love with you.. I flew. "

One extraordinary love.
Eleanor... Red hair, wrong clothes. Standing behind him until he turns his head. Lying beside him until he wakes up. Making everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough...Eleanor.
Park... He knows she'll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There's a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises...Park.
Set over the course of one school year, this is the story of two star-crossed sixteen-year-olds—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try.
Reading "Eleanor and Park" was one of the reasons why I love the Young Adult genre! I was amazed how Ms. Rainbow Rowell can put every goodness and awesomeness into words and squeezed to a 325 page-book. It was such a beautiful surprise!
I know I read a very good book when these things happen:
1. asdfghgjfkkf! <------ You'll find something like this on my review. Yep, that's Me...lost for words! So, this book? asdfhgkhhlgf!
2. I got these reactions from page one to last page !
When she met another misfit named Park Sheridan, oh, it did not start like what our normal "love at first sight" thing... it was not even close. In fact, the reclusive Park tried to ignore her...but how can he? When this RED spectacle have nowhere to sit but beside him? ..And that's the beginning of everything! You can call it destiny...fate. I call it... asdgfhjghk!
3. I really get myself into the story....got really into both Eleanor and Park's mind. I felt every single emotion and it was ....everything was perfect! Ms. Rowell captured the essence of what young love is all about. The awkwardness, the confusion.... everything was so real !
Speaking of young love, sweet love??? Oh my geeeezzz! I have never felt so excited over "holding hands" like I did for Eleanor and Park! Holding hands? It's not even a kiss?! Yes... because of this:
" Holding Eleanor's hand was like holding a butterfly. Or a heartbeat. Like holding something complete, and completely alive."
"Disintegrated. Like something had gone wrong beaming her onto the Starship Enterprise. If you've ever wondered what that feels like , it's a lot like melting - but more violent."
See??? INTENSE! And it's not even kissing!!!! Hmmm, now you are curious??? You gotta read this one, yourself!
4. There's a burst of freshness and honesty ....and spontaneity every now and then. I got mixed reactions , I giggled, swooned, laughed, cried and much , much more. A page turner plus an emotion-stirrer? what could be better??
“Damn, damn, damn," she said. "I never said why I like you, and now I have to go."
"That's okay," he said.
"It's because you're kind," she said. "And because you get all my jokes..."
"Okay." He laughed.
"And you're smarter than I am."
"I am not."
"And you look like a protagonist." She was talking as fast as she could think. "You look like the person who wins in the end. You're so pretty, and so good. You have magic eyes," she whispered. "And you make me feel like a cannibal."
"I have to go." She leaned over so the receiver was close to the base.
"Eleanor - wait," Park said. She could hear her dad in the kitchen and her heartbeat everywhere.
"Eleanor - wait - I love you.."
Me? Eeeeeeeeeeeppppppp!!!!! It's cuuuuuute!!!!! That's one crazy way of declaring love?!!! I love it!!!
5. The ending was just.....Ooooh? what was that?
" Eleanor hasn't written him a letter, it was a postcard. Just three words long."
...and what follows after that? I wish I know. I wish I knew. Maybe, Ms. Rowell just want me to figure it out? Oh, I figured it out... and I was smiling right now with tears in my eyes...
