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.
Colleen Hoover is by far one the most buzz author that I have heard when it comes to New Adult Romance. This is my first Colleen Hoover book and it didn’t disappoint.
This is the story of Lily. Lily didn’t have an easy life growing up. Her father was abusive to her mother. When she was sixteen she meets Atlas who is homeless living in the house next door without heat, water and electricity. She falls in love with Atlas but Atlas doesn’t feel he is enough for her. He ends up moving to Boston to live with his uncle and they lose touch.
Lily moves to Boston. She meets by accident Ryle Kincaid. They have a slow burn romance and they ended up getting married. Situations in their marriage prove troublesome. At the same time, she meets with Atlas again and she realize that she still have feelings for him. Ryle and Lily separate but Lily finds out that she is pregnant. She realized in the end that she needed to leave Ryle. She ends up with Atlas.
The book had themes of abuse and second chance romance. There wasn’t any physical cheating in this book. There was enough twist and turns that left you engaged in the story.
I give it a 4.5 stars to this book, because after reading it I continue to think about it. It left an impression with me.
I am not sure if I am a die hard Colleen Hoover fan. I tried to read Slammed and November 9 and I just couldn’t get it started. I do have Ugly Love in my queue from the library which I am hoping to read.
