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 It End With Us, Colleen Hoover has easily delivered my favorite book of hers yet. It’s profound and entirely enthralling. This story gripped me from the first chapter and refused to let go until the very last word. It left me fundamentally changed and in awe of Hoover’s talent.
I was completely blown away by the strength of the characters in this story. Lily and Atlas are young adults who audaciously stand united against adversity and life’s harrowing circumstances. Ryle attacks his own secret pain by focusing on becoming the best neurosurgeon in the field. They are remarkable survivors who know their worth, who dare to hope, laugh, and dream.
This book will force you to examine your values and preconceptions. It’s unpredictable, and the subject matter can be difficult, but woven throughout is optimism, humor, fantastic friendships, and beautiful love stories of all varieties.
Colleen Hoover’s writing is stellar, and she has breathed life into a story that celebrates the power of the human spirit. It Ends With Us is heartbreaking, poignant, romantic, and unbelievably inspiring—just an extraordinary book that everyone should read.
