"The newest, highly anticipated novel from beloved #1 New York Times bestselling author, Colleen Hoover. Sometimes it is the one who loves you 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, 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"--

Lily Bloom has not always had the easiest life, but that did not stop her from becoming a college graduate and a successful business owner. After college, she meets a neurosurgeon and the two fall in love with each other. But when her ex suddenly makes a reappearance in her life, her new relationship is threatened. This novel has themes of domestic violence and abusive relationships. Though this is a sensitive subject, it is extremely important to talk about. This is an extremely powerful story with a beautiful message that I think everyone should read. I would give this a 5/5 stars.

Entertaining enough but should come with a bigger warning about Domestic Violence

This book does such an outstanding job of exposing the facets of domestic violence. There can be many layers to why it happens and why people stay. The love story that develops between the main character and her abuser is intoxicating and eventually, heartbreaking. Don't fail to read the notes from the author at the end of the book. Her inspiration for this story had to make it extremely difficult to write.

Just finished this book! Page turner = quick read. Without saying too much, this book was really great and I loved getting to know the story of Atlas and Lily. There is also a huge lesson to be learned here! It’s based around domestic violence, soo trigger warning. Sadly, it brought me back to my childhood and I was thinking of that the whole time. I don’t think I could read this again, but I can see how other readers are really into this one.

This was such a good book and not a predictable read like it may let on at first. So good. Wish it was longer because I enjoyed every bit of it.

This book hooked me from the first page. It starts off with Lily, the female protagonist in the beginning stages of grief (and the lack thereof) of her father's death where she meets Ryle. I was constantly going back and forth between Ryle, her new present-day love interest, and Atlas, her first love. I usually stray away from reading novels with love triangles but the story that was told hooked me with more than the romance. Please look up trigger warnings before reading. Again, her novels deal with a lot of heavy topics.

This book deserves 10 stars. It wasn’t at all what I expected but oh boy did it turn out to be so much more.

So well written, so beautiful, so heartbreaking, and honestly I grappled the entire story and was hooked from the very beginning. I’m blown away.

I never thought I would like a book about abuse, not having experienced any myself, but I was wrong. Colleen Hoover has written a heartrending account of abuse and the cycle it perpetuates unless it is broken. The protagonist Lily believes that there are no bad people just good people who do bad things yet will she have to leave a man she loves and hates at the same time? She never thought she would turn into her mother but when she did she realized how strong her mother was. The title might be somewhat of a spoiler telling readers what Lily's decision will be but it is still a very poignant read which will tug at your heart strings.

Atlas x Lily (#1)
Ryle x Lily (#2)

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.
