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.
There is not one book written by Ms. Hoover that doesn't consume me for hours until the very last page. And It Ends With Us is just another brilliant, emotional, page-turner read.
Lily Bloom (and yes, I loved her name!) has been through a lot growing up at home. On the outside, her family life looked great, but behind closed doors it was total different story. And the one person who she befriend and ended up helping her was a boy named Atlas. These two formed a friendship that turned into the soulmate-kinda-love, but an incident tears them apart.
When Lily's past shows up in Boston, her life and heart is turned inside out. They boy she gave her heart to years ago is back. And no, this book is not about cheating or some big angsty love triangle, it's a book that is heart-wrenching and will tear you apart as you read it.
I can't even tell you how this book made me feel. I was torn, hurt, and just sad for the characters. I had mixed emotions for each characters and honestly, I afraid how this book was going to end. But in the end, I was ok. Yes, this review is vague, but there is no way I would spoil this fantastic read for you.
Bravo Ms. Hoover!
