Review: It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover



Description:

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.

Review:

As a reader, who loved this book, I think you should go into this one not knowing a lot about the plot. The story was heartbreaking, powerful and thought provoking. I’ve read a few books by Colleen Hoover and this was my favorite. When I finished this book I was happy, I was sad, I was disappointed but satisfied. I was disappointed because it didn’t end how I wanted it, but it was the best possibly ending that it could have had.

I loved Lily’s determination, her drive and her realness. I really enjoyed the past and present storyline, it added depth and understanding to the currently Lily and where she has come from. It proves the added shock value to her currently situation. I also enjoyed her relationships with secondary characters. It made her real, and relatable. Her relationship with Ryle’s proved how unexpected life can be.


If I were to recommend one Colleen Hoover book, it would be this one. I thought it was well written, well thought out and it will leave you torn up.

  1. I met Hoover but haven't read any of her books yet. This sounds like a good one to start with.

  2. I've never read a book by this author, though I have her on my list to read. You make this one sound so good....and I'm not even sure what it's about! That is a little scary! I've added it to my list now.
