It Ends With Us

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 the life she wants. She's come a long way from the small town in Maine where grew up - she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon name 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. - excerpt from book.

It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover is a new adult genre and it's my first time attempting it. There have been many raves about this author for this genre, so I decided to try it by reading the latest published book. I went in without any expectations and I was quickly hooked to it. I really love it from the start to end as it brings out a good topic of domestic abuse.

Jumping into the plot, the beginning itself will capture your attention as a little bit of mystery surfaces for the characters. I love that the timeline of the story progresses with a good pace where days and months are clearly mentioned and not everything happens in a short period of time. As we  journey further, there were some twist and turns that were fun to read about and when the big one comes it makes such an impact that you will feel for the characters. The author does a great job in keeping you addicted to the pages.

The characters surely gave life to the story while stressing on the importance of the message. I love how the main heroine meets all the new people in her life and their interactions with her is intriguing and heart warming. Her relationships with other characters are well written and realistic. I especially love her interactions with the men in her life and the conflicts it causes has so much tension. The thoughts of the main heroine is definitely realistic and thought provoking for women in love. I often feel pain and sadness for her, not that I can relate to it but I definitely can sympathise with her.

Overall I quite enjoyed my time with the book as it managed to keep me interested and I wanted to read it as soon as I had free time. I did tear a bit as it was such a dear story to the author herself. The author has certainly made it to my authors to take note of list and I'm excited to read her other books. If you're new to her and this genre I suggest to just try any of the other titles as most of it have quite good reviews. Readers who enjoy realistic love should pick up this book and I hope your heart will be touched.
