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 decided to go into this one blind. I heard that it was a personal book for Colleen, but that was all I knew about it before I started reading. (Well, I mean, besides the pretty cover. Look at that cover! So pretty!!) This reminds me of the time Jacque had the Book Nerds read Bitter End by Jennifer Brown. (My review for that is here: The plots of these two stories were also similar, though Bitter End deals with high schoolers and It Ends With Us has adults. But I enjoyed both the stories for the same reason. The situations were believable: the characters were real and flawed -- not all good or all bad. Colleen did such a powerful job writing this -- I couldn't just see Lily's dilemma and thought process -- I could feel it, too. Which is important. Because if this was all head, the answer and the resulting actions would be easy. But it's not all head. There is love involved. But at the end, the choice Lily made was out of love she had for her loved ones. The supporting characters in this story were phenomenal; I loved Marshall and Allysa. And Atlas? Well, I would scour Boston looking for Atlas! *swoons* I applaud Colleen for sharing this story with us. It's an emotional read, but it's worth it.

....and hey! You can win it after the page break! ;-) (See what I did there?!)
