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.
As always I enjoyed every second of this book. I have only come across one book by Colleen that I wasn't 100% thrilled with. This book is no exception.
Lily grew up in a house where her father beat her mother on a regular basis. As a teenager she met a guy that she fell in love with, Atlas, but he disappeared for good after her father caught them together and almost killed him. Years later she meets Ryle on the night of her fathers funeral. Ryle has his own issues and soon after their relationship takes that major step his true nature comes out. This is also around the time that Atlas pops back into her life. Who will Lily end up with? Will she get her dream? Can Ryle be different?
I love the passion in this book. The depth and intensity of the characters were amazing. While I thought the journal entries screwed with the flow and pace of the book they were necessary to the story. That was the one issue I had with this book but as it was vital to the story I can't say much about it.
Colleen is a great author if you need to get out of a reading slump I would highly suggest any of her books. The one exception for me would be Ugly Love (I personally wasn't thrilled with that one). Colleen's books will easily get you out of a reading slump and you fly through them.
