September's Paperback Pick

Yes, I know I'm wayyy late, but better late than never! I've been really excited about Colleen Hoover's latest book, It Ends With Us, even though I had no clue what it was about. She's an auto-buy author for me, so I one-click without any hesitation and it took some time before I picked it up, so by the time I got around to reading the book, I couldn't remember what the blurb said - if I had read it at all.

This book...I feel like I went through as many emotions as the main character, Lily. It was so good! This is probably the first time I cried more after a book was over than I did during the book. I'm also glad this book was written. It touches on a hard subject and handles it well. 

This paperback pick was fantastic, and I definitely recommend.


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.
