It's time. It's The Honest Bookclub's first giveaway and, boy, are we excited! 

We have an extra copy of the marvelous Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover, which was released earlier last week. If you haven't gotten yourself a copy yet, then you're in luck - you could win one right here at TheHonestBookclub. In the week and a half since its release, it hit the top 10 bestselling list on three major ebook platforms (Amazon, ibooks and Barnes&Noble). The book release also trended worldwide on Twitter. And as of yesterday, Ugly Love is #4 on the New York Times bestseller list. You know, no biggie. It's only The New York Times!

Where is our review, you ask? It's coming. Rather than to swallow the book like a book-to-review transmogrifying machine that we normally are, we have opted for savoring Ugly Love and taking our time to gather our impressions before putting the review out there in the world. Hey, even reviewers need a break from time to time. And what better author to savor than Colleen Hoover? (It's rhetorical question. There's no such author.)

The copy being given away is the UK edition (as shown in the picture below), so if you've already purchased the book and would love a different version of it - you've come to the right place.

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
