This is the first time I’ve read one of Collen's books and I have to say, I was not expecting that. It was so good, so emotional, it just had everything! Writing about being abused by someone you love is not an easy subject to write about, but with Collen's way with words, I felt like I was watching a movie and every second of it, good or bad, felt extremely real.
I loved Lilly, I fell deeply in love with Atlas, as for Ryle - well, let's just say my gut feeling was right about him from the start. I wish Colleen would give us more of Atlas. Much more of him. Maybe a whole book just for him? Fingers crossed. Like I said, this book was my first from Colleen but it won’t be my last.
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.
