About the Book- It Ends with Us

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.

Goodreads Page

“Just because someone hurts you doesn’t mean you can simply stop loving them. It’s not a person’s actions that hurt the most. It’s the love. If there was no love attached to the action, the pain would be a little easier to bear.”

Our Review of It Ends with Us

HOLY MOLLY GOD! This book … I feel like I was thrown into a tumble dry wash cycle. Colleen Hoover definitely doesn’t play it lightly. EVER. But this book just took the breath out of me. No way I am reading the sequel. Don’t get me wrong it is not because the book was bad but it is because the book was so GOOOOD that I can’t go through the pain and intensity again. At least for now. Maybe in future, if I feel ready enough, I may try the sequel because I am pretty sure that the sequel is going to be a tornado.

It ends with us, is INTENSE and RAW and I am saying this in the best way possible. This book is very heavy and jostles pretty roughly. I loved the book for the way it makes you so vulnerable and emotionally tapped. You can’t read this book with a light heart. The book absolutely disturbs and educates you about domestic abuse, love and relationship

The book deals with such a heavy topic and it doesn’t take it lightly at all. It tackles the issue with all possible seriousness and intensity. It achieves saying a lot with so few words. One of the best parts of the book is the way it uses its characters and events to throw light at every day and minor things that could open your eyes to how every domestic abuse doesn’t look and come in the same packet. 


In conclusion, I would say that if you are picking up this book, be really prepared for an emotionally intense read. Brave yourself for heartbreak and pain but as weird as it may sound, the book can tug on your brain and heart. One of the most powerful and worthwhile while books I have ever read.
