The newest, highly anticipated novel from beloved #1 New York Times bestselling author, Colleen Hoover.
Sometimes it is the one who loves you who hurts you the most.
Lily hasn’t always had it easy, but that’s never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She’s come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up—she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life suddenly seems almost too good to be true.
Ryle is assertive, stubborn, maybe even a little arrogant. He’s also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily. And the way he looks in scrubs certainly doesn’t hurt. Lily can’t get him out of her head. But Ryle’s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing. Even as Lily finds herself becoming the exception to his “no dating” rule, she can’t help but wonder what made him that way in the first place.
As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan—her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened.
With this bold and deeply personal novel, Colleen Hoover delivers a heart-wrenching story that breaks exciting new ground for her as a writer. Combining a captivating romance with a cast of all-too-human characters, It Ends With Us is an unforgettable tale of love that comes at the ultimate price.
This is the first Colleen Hoover book that I wasn’t able to read in one sitting.
That doesn’t mean that I didn’t love it, just that I was incredibly busy.
That said, I’m torn. Completely torn. Part of me thinks this is my new favorite book from Colleen, but part of me still has a broken heart.
Colleen says that it’s best to going the book as blind as possible and I agree, but…dang it hurt. I almost feel like there should be a content warning because I know there are people who won’t be able to handle some of the subject matter in it for various reasons.
I don’t want to extend on that for fear of spoilers, but I do feel like it may be a disservice to some readers to go in completely blind.
The book isn’t perfect. There are parts that I cringed over the repeated use of different phrases, but overall…I loved it.
There were times that I threw my books across my bed or gasped, but I loved it.
Do yourself a favor and don’t skip the author’s note at the end when you read it- just don’t read it first because, again…spoilers.
