It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover Review

It Ends With Us
by Colleen Hoover
Published on August 2nd 2016
Atria Books, 376 pages


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.

- description

Cycles exist because they are excruciating to break. 
It takes an astronomical amount of pain and
courage to disrupt a familiar pattern. Sometimes it
seems easier to just keep running in the same 
familiar circles, rather than facing the fear of 
jumping and possibly not landing on your feet.

Wow, honestly, I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I picked up this book. 
No. Idea.

Oh my feels, this book. It was one of the most real and heart breaking books I've ever read. It breaks my heart all over again when I think about it. 

Lily. Oh, Lily. Such a strong independent woman, and I admired her so much. She was so nice, and a really good person, considering all she has been through. It broke my heart when she had to go through things she had to go through. The best part about Lily is that every decision she makes seems so logical. She guides you through all the mental process and by the end of the process you agree with her. 

It was unbelievable how greatly Colleen Hoover embodied the feels. It was bloody real. It felt like it was happening next to me. Hell, it seems like it was happening to me. And it's bad and you feel bad and you just can't help it. It's a sense of trapped that I honestly hope I never ever experience. 

The romance was spot on. Beautifully written, and I would be lying if I say that I didn't fall in love a little bit with Ryle and the naked truths. But, ouch. 

I think everyone should read this book. It's raw and honest, and people need to know. We look at others and judge but we should educate ourselves and try to make a world a better place. This shouldn't be happening to anyone. Noone deserves this. And I think it's our duty as human beings to help others when we see such things happening.

I will never forget the message of this book. We break the pattern before the pattern breaks us

Read this book.
