It Ends With Us: The top five Sunday Times best selling romance novel of 2021 Kindle Edition
'A brave and heartbreaking novel that digs its claws into you and doesn't let go, long after you've finished it' Anna Todd, author of the After series

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, 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. 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, It Ends With Us is a heart-wrenching story and an unforgettable tale of love that comes at the ultimate price.

"As I sit here with one foot on either side of the ledge looking down.." If only every book opened this way.
Told trough Lilly's POV, her story, this book is both beautifully written, heart breaking and real. It's also something you need to be in the correct mindset to read, content warnings might be absent, but it's not as sweet as the cover suggests. Life never is.
The missing star - it felt rushed. Detailed, emotional, then rushed in the last moments.
Lily’s strength to make the right decision not just for her but for others on her life is remarkable, though sometimes I just wanted to shake her, but I loved reading about her teenage years and her 24 year old self. When life got tough, she just ‘kept on swimming’ hoping every wave led her to happiness and the right decisions.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, I really just could have kept reading!
Lily grew up in an abusive household. Although he never touched her, her father beat her mother and Lily often put herself in between them. She couldn’t understand why her mother didn’t leave.
Then she meets and falls in love with Ryle, and just when she thinks that she has everything she could wish for, he hits her.
She has to decide if she can forgive him and move forward. And just to make matters more complicated, since running into her first love again unexpectedly, she can’t help wondering how things could have been different.
This was such a hard read - what I thought to be so black and white has so many grey areas, and I ended up feeling torn by the decisions Lily makes and wishing things not to play out as they did! It also made me feel very grateful.
I would recommend the read but it comes with a trigger warning. It was so well written and I wasn’t surprised to learn at the end that it based on the author’s true experience.
Lily was such a strong and beautiful character who struggled with her love for Rylie and what she new was right. This book is ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️+ read and everyone should read it.
Do you really know someone? So if you've been the victim of an abusive relationship that often turns out to be the case esp from first impressions. I must admit Ryle did show us his real side then but like many others I don't want to believe the way the course of their lives changed. I know this is done so authors can tell their story. (Don't get me wrong I didn't condone his actions OK !)
I also feel there wasn't enough of Adam in the latter part of the story. It just lacked something for me before it became more.
After all the drama, Lily's ending was one we have to assume worked out for her but it ended too abruptly for me. I don't like being left hanging without it all being tied up. But this is a work of fiction & it's one we have to deal with.

Anyway, don’t expect great literature with this one. In fact, set expectations really low and maybe you can get through it. Me? Life is too short to waste any of it on crappy books.
This book put me through the ringer, and I'm still feeling the aftershocks. I love books that make me question my own beliefs and really give me pause to stop and think. It Ends With Us is one of those books.
I have no personal experience of the subject matter but I have always had sympathy for anyone going through such a situation. It was no surprise that I really felt for Lily and shared her pain, grief, heartache, and confusion. I found myself constantly stopping to imagine how I might feel, how I would act, if I was in a similar situation, and I honestly don't know how I would deal with it.
What shocked me, what was entirely unexpected, was how much I felt for Ryle. Don't get me wrong, I wanted her to do what she did, and he was definitely in the wrong, but he wasn't a really nasty person. He was hugely flawed, damaged, and he couldn't control his emotions, but there was no doubt in my mind that he loved her. Probably too much which is where his issues stemmed from.
When I reflected on the initial scene where they met (so so good - the dialogue was unbelievably brilliant) I could see how self-aware he was. He indulged in one night stands with no strings and he didn't have relationships because he knew he was incapable of same. He should have stuck to that, but then we wouldn't have had a story.
I loved the letters to Ellen and the retelling of her time with Atlas. It was heartwarming and gut-wrenching at the same time. I really felt their connection, and I was rooting for them and then I became conflicted because Ryle was so perfect at the start and I felt their chemistry and their love and then...
Gosh, my heart is pounding again. And that twist - oh my Lord, I was cut up all over again when that happened.
I don't think I'll every forget this book. The last one that ripped my insides apart was Bright Side by Kim Holden (so good - go read it if you haven't already.) Different story but it delivered the same powerful emotional turmoil.
My only complaint is that I wanted more of "present day" Atlas but I'm greedy like that! A little novella now would be great, Colleen, hint hint!
I loved the personal note Colleen included at the end, and the personal connection she had to this story shines through.
It is quite simply masterful. Absolutely superb. She nailed the emotions and managed to end it on a positive note and I'm going to be feeling all the feels for a lot while.
Highly Recommended, but make sure you have a box of tissues because you'll need them.
I'm not a Romance lover and definitely not a Colleen Hoover lover. This book was yet again just like her other books: characters with horrifying past, they meet suddenly, sparks flew, fall in love at first sight, and etc.
Whole plotline was predictable. I could tell from the start what was going to happen.
Writing was not that amusing too. I find it simple and well it's a good thing. I don't mind simple writing as long as plotline is good.
But here that was not the case. Just after reading two or three pages I started cringing. Every page was cringe worth.
Only good thing was the attempt to send a message through of domestic violence and the helpline number and resources at the end.
And that just ends with that.
