Instant New York Times Bestseller

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.

I cried. So. Much. Colleen Hoover has a real talent for developing characters that you can connect with. Even though I've never experienced what these characters are going through myself, I felt like I did.

An Insightful 5 Stars!

Whew! This was a tough read. I can usually barrel through a CoHo book never wanting to set it down. With It Ends With Us, I actually had to take a few mental health breaks. Waiting so long to read this one after so much social media attention, I thought I had a handle on this story's trajectory. Wrong! Every other chapter, my thoughts and speculation veered. There wasn't one moment in this book that was predictable. With a satisfying and somewhat bittersweet conclusion, this author proved she had a story to tell and I just had to trust her storytelling journey. Poignant, witty, romantic, and heartbreaking, this was an insightful story that will resonate with many. It certainly did with me.

This book is great and unlike anything I've read. The story line, the characters and the way Colleen Hoover made these characters come to life make this book impossible to put down.

If you found the love of your life, but not everything was perfect how many times would you forgive. How far would your limit change? How many times could you accept the same apology? Lucy had her greatest times in her life change in a quick instant.. A mistake.. Or was it a mistake? This book was one I couldn't put down. A story line I haven't come across before and a new subject normally not talked about. Great smooth writing style by author.

I’ve just finished book and I am so happy with the ending. I can’t imagine how many different feelings could hit me because of this one book!!! My heart feel so heavy, aching and sympathized when unfortunate incidents happened to Lily. My heart was aching and my eyes were watery when Atlas held Lily and said “In the future... if by some miracle you ever find yourself in the position to fall in love again ... fall in love with me.” I’ve been rooting for Lily could be together with Atlas because of his sacrifice from keeping him loving her while he saw her already be with someone else.
I love everything about this book! The story line, the characters and the way Colleen Hoover made these characters come to life

Half way through, I believed this book was the usual romance stuff and had even mentally prepared myself to give it a bad rating.

The rest of the book changed everything.

I started this book thinking it would only be a quick romantic-comedy contemporary type of book. But it really blew me away. Yes it does have a lot of romantic-comedy, however it touches some heavy topics as well. I don't want to spoil anything but I think every woman should read this!!!
It even had me crying at more than one time. This is my first Colleen Hoover novel and I was really surprised.

Another novel beautifully written by Colleen Hoover. She always has a way to make you feel everything. Those who have been in abusive relationships could relate to the story very much so. I would read this book over and over again! 4.5 stars for me!

Predictable story. I enjoyed the first 1/3 of the book, but the love interest, Ryle, was such a selfish, big baby!

Sexual Content: Many explicit scenes, but it's a romance so what can you expect?
