This is Colleen Hoover’s most emotional and personal book to date, and one of her best! Have a box of tissues handy! You’ll need it when you read It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover!
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.
This book contains graphic scenes and very sensitive subject matter.
There was such a complicated mix of emotions when reading this book! This is not a light book; it touches on a few sensitive topics, and opens the readers eyes to this world that a lot of men and women live through. I feel in love with this book from the moment I opened it, and it couldn’t put it down.
I have to say that I always shipped Lily with Atlas from the very first moment we learn about him. He seemed like a wonderful guy who truly cared about her. I just didn’t care for Ryle with Lily. He came across as really pushy to me—”just have sex with me so I can move on and forget about you”—and that is just not attractive to me.
I’m not sure I will ever have my thoughts together for writing a review for this book. All I know is that this was a brilliant, important book, one I am thankful to have read!
My Rating: 5/5 stars
“All humans make mistakes. What determines a person’s character aren’t the mistakes we make. It’s how we take those mistakes and turn them into lessons rather than excuses.”
“There is no such thing as bad people. We’re all just people who sometimes do bad things.”
“Just because someone hurts you doesn’t mean you can simply stop loving them. It’s not a person’s actions that hurt the most. It’s the love. If there was no love attached to the action, the pain would be a little easier to bear.”
“It stops here. With me and you. It ends with us.”
