About the book
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.
I honestly dreaded doing this review. Not because I didn’t like the book, because the opposite couldn’t be more true. This book was so incredible that I feel any review I give it will be inadequate. You’ve heard me praise Colleen Hoover’s books time and time again, and she’s without a doubt my favorite author. But what she gives us with her new book is a complete game changer. She has written a story so emotional and heartbreaking, yet hopeful and moving that any review from me could never do it justice.
Colleen has told her readers that this book is very personal to her, and I felt it. Raw and honest, it was one of the most eye-opening, emotional stories I’ve ever read. Her talent for writing a unique story never ceases to amaze me. But it’s also the way she makes me think and question things that makes her writing so exceptional.
It’s easy to judge and form opinions about a person’s situation when you haven’t experienced it first hand. Colleen does a fantastic job of putting the reader in the shoes of her characters, while packing an emotional punch. And while at times the situation is devastating and heart wrenching (pretty sure I held my breath the entire time I read this book), she weaves strength and courage into the story, giving the reader reason to hope.
I started going into more details about the story, but I really feel like the best way to read this book is by going in blindly, as I did. I had no idea what the book was going to be about, and after finishing it, I’m glad I didn’t. But be prepared for the emotional impact it will have on you – and keep the tissues close by! This is a book that will stay with you long after you finish the last page.
A beautiful story of bravery and hope – this book will change people’s lives.
Without a doubt Colleen’s best work.
