From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Starts with Us and All Your Perfects, a “brave and heartbreaking novel that digs its claws into you and doesn’t let go, long after you’ve finished it” (Anna Todd, New York Times bestselling author) about a workaholic with a too-good-to-be-true romance can’t stop thinking about her first love.
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 where she grew up—she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. And when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life seems 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.
An honest, evocative, and tender novel, It Ends with Us is “a glorious and touching read, a forever keeper. The kind of book that gets handed down” (USA TODAY).

I TOTALLY GET THE HYPE NOW!
Oh my goodness! I have heard of so many amazing things about this book and people hyping it up so much. Many people were saying that it was an emotional roller coaster that they felt while reading this book. A lot of people mentioned that this book, along with “It Starts With Us” is like a therapy session. Let me say that I have never felt so much emotion while reading a book in my life. This book had me sad, angry, tense, happy, worried. I even gasped in some of these pages! I completely understand the hype around Colleen’s books and I’m so glad that I read this one. I am super excited to read “It Starts With Us”. I 100% recommend!
Can’t believe all the raves about this book. Feels like it was written by a 14 year old for a 14 year old. I like characters that have depth. Maybe some of her other books are good but I will never buy another one written by her.
Couldn’t stop rolling my eyes at how cheesy/cringy this book is. It’s extremely predictable and feels like a teenager wrote it.
