Review ~ IT ENDS WITH US by Colleen Hoover

Posted on Mar 2, 2017 by in Colleen Hoover | 0 comments

Welcome my good friend, Kristin (KC) to Foxy Blogs.  She was one of my first friends on Goodreads and we’ve spent the last 5 years buddy reading and/or discussing books.  A couple years ago she had a blog aptly named Pretty Words.  I recently asked her to share her reviews on Foxy Blogs and she has agreed. Foxy Blogs is excited to have someone with Kristen’s writing talents to be sharing with all of us!!! *throws confetti*

IT ENDS WITH US

Standalone

Colleen Hoover

BLURB

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, and 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.

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. It Ends With Us is an unforgettable tale of love that comes at the ultimate price.

This book contains graphic scenes and very sensitive subject matter.

★★★

*3.5 stars*

Naked Truth? I hate that I didn’t love this…

Colleen Hoover has tackled some very important issues in this one, for which I have the utmost respect, but I just couldn’t get past the nagging feeling that something was missing.

Don’t get me wrong, there was a LOT going on in this story…maybe too much. So much that the plot grew a little rushed, and ultimately unconvincing.

I honestly feel this book could have been split into two very powerful stories.
I loved its candor… its bravery…its rough edges.
I just wish certain issues were given more individual focus, even if that meant leaving out detail in other areas of the plot.

Good read overall, and I do believe most CoHo fans will appreciate, if not love this one. There’s no question that this author knows how to give our heartstrings a solid tug!
