Review + Giveaway: It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover

Rating: 6 Cups of Coffee
Goodreads Book Description: 
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; 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.


Natasha's Experience:
This is actually going to be a pretty short review because there's not much I can say without giving away anything (I could rave about how much I loved this story, which starts now, but I'll keep that to a minimum because there are only so many times I can say a story is amazing and perfect before I sound redundant, ugh) Here are two words to sum up IT ENDS WITH US: raw & gritty. Expect to be absolutely gutted during/after reading CoHo's best work to date.

"Naked truths aren't always pretty."

Have you ever read a story that leaves you reeling, a story that fills you with all kinds of feelings you're left grasping for some sense of normalcy afterwards? That was me after IT ENDS WITH US. Without a doubt, this is the most honest I've ever seen Colleen Hoover. This story is deeply personal and breathtakingly real.

"I think about how sometimes, no matter how convinced you are that your life will turn out a certain way, all that certainty can be washed away with a simple change in tide."

If by some strange reason (luck?) you haven't read the book description, I urge you to skip it and go into this story blind because it will make all the difference.

"Maybe love isn't something that comes full circle. It just ebbs and flows, in and out, just like the people in our lives."
