Lily’s life hasn’t been without its challenges, but that hasn’t stopped her from trying to build the kind of life she envisions for herself. She has accomplished a great deal since she was a child in the rural community where she was raised, including graduating from college, relocating to Boston, and launching her own company. And when she has an electric reaction with a stunning neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life looks too good to be true.

It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover [pdf]

Ryle is headstrong, obstinate, and perhaps even a little arrogant sometimes. In addition, he is both compassionate and clever, and he is completely smitten with Lily. And the fact that he looks so good in his scrubs doesn’t hurt, too. Lily is having trouble putting his image out of her mind. Concerning, though, is Ryle’s total lack of interest in romantic partnerships. Even though she is the one person he will make an exception for when it comes to his “no dating” rule, Lily still can’t help but wonder what it was that turned him that way in the first place.

Her head is spinning with doubts about her new connection, but she also can’t stop thinking about Atlas Corrigan, the man who was her first love and a link to the past she tried to escape. He was the embodiment of her kindred spirit and her guardian. Everything that Lily and Ryle have worked so hard to create is in jeopardy when Atlas returns.


It Ends with Us is a novel that is heartfelt, vivid, and honest, and it is described as “a wonderful and poignant read, a forever keeper.” This kind of literature is passed down from generation to generation (USA TODAY).
