It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover Review





The newest, highly anticipated novel from beloved #1 New York Times bestselling author, Colleen Hoover.

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. 

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.




Review 
5 Freaking Incredible Stars





I actually had to go back because I realized my next half of the revenues was somewhat SPOILERY so I had to kind of restart. Colleen does it again with It Ends With Us. Every book has made me cry and feel and just wish it could never end. It reaches deep into your soul and just kind of tugs at you. Such an incredible talent and such an amazing work. I really can't say to much without we'll be SPOILERY. So if you don't mind SPOILERY keep reading........ If not. STOP NOW. 





SPOILERY PART OF REVIEW 

Im ended up getting a little personal here so if your offended I apologize but hey this is my blog and my review.


It Ends With Us. Really struck home for me. I grew up similar to Lily except the man wasn't my father he was my stepfather I never did and still don't understand why she stayed as long as she did. She did eventually leave... But I had already made the promise to myself to never be in that situation. Because I knew it was a cycle. My grandfather had done the same to my grandmother and then it happened to my mother.  I am happy to say I did break the cycle and my husband knows if he ever laid a hand on me it would be over and after 16 years together he hasnt even come close and our three boys will never see that growing up. So to say this book hit home is seriously an understatement. Doesn't help I'm totally pregnant and hormonal at the moment haha. But this story was epic. I liked Ryle .... I mean it's hard not to... And I think I might have even understood ... Well shit I can't really say much with out spoilers truthfully I probably already might have spoiled some.... Which is why I'm going back to the beginning and this will become the end of my review.... Which I could have done with out telling you but hey NAKED TRUTH.   So I  could have understood forgiveness in the end thats just how well these characters were written something I honestly can only think of two authors could achieve. Colleen obviously being one of them. Some books are just great... but Hoover seems to continuously hit them out of the park.

Part of Chapter One to share:
Chapter One
#wtf

“You are supposed to be with me.”
What words are these? They startle me, and at first I think I’ve heard him wrong. He’s leaning across the table while our significant others are twenty feet away, waiting in line for our food.
“You and me,” he says. “Not us and them.”
I blink at him before I realize he’s making a joke. I laugh and go back to looking at my magazine. Actually, it’s not really a magazine. It’s a math journal, because I’m super cool like that.
“Helena…” I don’t look up right away. I’m afraid to. If I look up and see that he’s not joking, everything will change.
“Helena.” He reaches out and touches my hand. I jump, pull back. My chair makes a horrid scraping sound, and Neil looks over. I pretend that I dropped something and reach under the table. Under the table are our shoes and legs. There is a blue crayon lying at my feet; I pick it up and resurface.
Neil is at the front of the line ordering our food, and my best friend’s boyfriend is waiting for my response, his eyes heavy with burden.
“Are you drunk?” I hiss. “What the fuck?”
“No,” he says. Though he doesn’t look so sure. For the first time, I notice the scruff on his face. The skin around his eyes is sallow. He’s going through something, maybe? Life is being bullshit.
“If this is a joke, you’re making me really uncomfortable,” I tell him. “Della is right there. What the hell is wrong with you?”
“I only have ten minutes, Helena.” His eyes move to the blue crayon, which is resting between our hands.
“Ten minutes for what? You’re sweating,” I say. “Did you take something, are you on the crack?” What type of drugs make you sweat like that? Crack? Heroine?
I want Neil and Della to come back. I want everything to go back to normal. I spin around to see where they are.
“Helena…”
“Stop saying my name like that.” My voice shakes. I make to stand up, but he grabs the crayon, then my hand.
“I don’t have much time. Let me show you.”
He’s sitting very still, but his eyes remind me of a cornered animal: frightened, panicked, bright. I’ve never seen that look on his face, but since Della’s only been dating him for a few months, it’s a moot point. I don’t really know this guy. He could be a druggie for all I know. He turns my hand over so it’s palm up, and I let him. I don’t know why, but I do.
He places the crayon in my palm and closes my fist around it.
“You have to say it out loud,” he says. “Show me, Kit.”
“Say it, Helena. Please. I’m afraid of what will happen if you don’t.”
Because he looks so afraid, I say it.
“Show me, Kit.” And then, “Should I know what this is?”  
“No one should,” he says. And then everything goes black.
