It Ends With Us
By: Colleen Hoover
Published 2016, Atria Books
SOMETIMES THE ONE WHO LOVES YOU IS THE ONE 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, and maybe even a little arrogant. He’s also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily, but Ryle’s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing.
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. It Ends With Us is an unforgettable tale of love that comes at the ultimate price.
Description from the Good Reads Book Page
I don’t buy into the social media overhyped books. I like to decide what books I want to read based on the book description and not only because everyone is posting a picture of it.
But I’ve read Colleen Hoover before, and I knew I would want to read this one too! Not only did I want to read it, I wanted a copy for my bookshelves as well!
Colleen has a way of writiting that immediately puts you into the book, feeling like you have personally known the characters forever; and not just for 5 pages of a book. It’s quite remarkable really!
It’s really impossible to chat about this book without giving away too much. I feel this is one of those books that is better read with some mystery to it. Just know going in there are some emotionaly disturbing scenes and is definitely a book for a more mature reader.
This is a book I would recommend to a wide variety of readers: especially those who enjoy new adult, contemporary, romance, general fiction.
