Publisher's Summary

The newest, highly anticipated novel from beloved New York Times best-selling 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.

✫✫ 5 Stars ✫✫

What an amazing book! I got 2 hours of sleep last night because I couldn't stop listening! This is a very powerful book about strength, courage and prevailing! I am one of those people who see someone going through something and think why don't you just walk away or why let things happen to you...this book made me understand that it's not always so black and white. I always admit that I have no empathy for people (it's just not part of who I am I guess), I think with my brain not my heart most of the time and for the 1st time I honestly feel like I see that it's not always so easy to see things as right or wrong, good and bad or cut and dry, for the first time I actually see the grey area and completely understand it. Seeing what I've been ignorant too all my life is breaking my heart now. I wish I could go back to all the times I listened to people and treated their problems like they were easy to fix and tell them I'm sorry and that I wish I would have been a better listener, a better friend and more helpful to them when they needed me most.

Colleen Hoover is an amazing author and always seems to write a story that makes you fall in love with the characters no matter what faults or issues they have and she did it again with this book. I think I'll be thinking about this one for a very long time!

The characters in this book were all so likable and have so much depth and so many layers. That is part of what I loved so much about this book, even when I wanted to hate a character I just couldn't!

The narration is good but it took me a little while to get used to her male voices. After an hours at most I didn't even remember what I didn't like about the narration in the beginning.

Once again, Colleen Hoover does not disappoint!

Where to begin? Colleen Hoover spun her words and drew me into her web. I devoured this book in a day. She makes you fall in love with her characters. Lily is a strong heroine that you root for. Both male leads implant themselves into your heart. I can't say much more without spoilers but I can say that this is a must read. Olivia Song does this story justice with her narration. I anxiously await the next Colleen Hoover book.

Disappointingly abusive disguised as romance

I’m tired of the narrative of men behaving in ways that are sexually explicit and dominating to a younger female who in this case is a stranger and it somehow translates as a romantic encounter, this reinforcement of toxic relationships is extremely difficult for me to swallow. Older handsome doctor tells 23-year-old female he just meet, on rooftop, late at night, after her abusive father’s funeral. I have no interest in love or family, but I’d like to f**k you, if you’re into one night stands.. and she swoons! Seriously?

BEST STORY EVER!!!!

I didn't know exactly what I was getting into when I started this audio. But holy moly the authors notes was so similar to what happened to me! W/O giving spoilers let me tell you this is by far one of Colleen's best books/audio. Narrator was freaking awesome! I say "yes" to spending your credit and "hell yes" to what ever price is suggested to purchase this audio!!DO NOT MISS THIS AUDIO!!!

This is the book Hoover was born to write

I kept thinking those words throughout 'This Ends With Us'. I've never read or listened to a book by Colleen Hoover, but have never experienced a better treatment of her subject matter. She then confirmed my thoughts in her epilogue- and boy, does this book deserve an author's epilogue.

This novel is storytelling at it's finest; you see that most of the other reviews are one or two lines- that's because it is such engaging, exquisite storytelling, that when the plot begins to turn, the reader is as surprised as Lily, Hoover's perfectly crafted heroine. Nobody wants to give it away.

Narrator Olivia Song is perfectly cast- I had some reservations when sampling the childlike voice- but Hoover's Lily calls her own voice 'weak' and Song gives a bravura performance. It is a perfect production.

So do yourself a favor and stop reading reviews- they might give too much away and you really don't want that- just spend the credit. 'This Ends With Us' is- as Lily says- awesome.

This is NOT 5 STAR WRITING-

Would you try another book from Colleen Hoover and/or Olivia Song?

Collen Hoover- NO Olivia Song- Maybe

Did It Ends with Us inspire you to do anything?

No

Any additional comments?

I had a longer review, but the computer ate it, so there's that.

First off I'm glad that the author tried to tackle such a cruel, disturbing and often shameful subject matter. BUT she fell short on so many levels due to the way she crafted the story, it was irritatingly hard to get through.The contrivances, coincidences and the blatant in your face predictabilaty of this books painfully bad writing was grating. Most of that made the characters lack the emotional depths needed for an emotional read like this. It just doesn't work, it's sloppy and a disservice to readers, and the message trying to be convayed.

I was really eager to read this book, it was on TBR list for awhile, audible & amazon is full of 5 star reviews for it. I'm truly baffled by all the 5 star reviews, but different opinions and all that. I read about all the FEELS, OMG the FEELS.... the emotion... I didn't feel anything but annoyed and pissed that I wasted my time on such a poorly written, hyped book. Don't believe the reviews, this is NOT 5 star writing! This is book is no better than what you'd see on a Lifetime movie.
NOW- I'm even more pissed at the ammount of reviews suggesting the MC made the wrong decision at the end, and blamed her for some of her actions during the book! Seriously? And people feeling more for the jerk (I'm trying not to spoil) than the victim is messed up.

Three stars for the first half of the book (though I was tempted to 2/12 star it). Learning more about the MC through her "Ellen" journals was a clever way to tell what she experienced.

I was moved by the epilog and CH revelations about her own families experience with abuse. I did get the FEELS from that

I can't stop crying.

This is a powerful book. I think it is important for all women to read this book. It dug up many different emotions from me. I was confused just as Lilly was. I was hurt as Lilly was. I was just as angry as Lilly was. What a powerful message this story provides. I'm still shedding tears about it. I beg you to read it and share it. It's life changing.

I've said it before and I'll say it again.... Colleen Hoover can do no wrong! Like everyone has said to do, I went into this blind. You need to. I think I went through every emotion at one point or another. But that's what a truly well told story should pull from you. This book is a definite must.

Juvenile.

Incredibly juvenile and boring. I could not get far in this book. It is romance for tweens. I'll be returning this.

A Story That will Stay With Me Forever

Colleen Hoover does it again, another winner. Heartbreakingly beautiful, the story follows Lily Bloom, who as a young girl has to deal with a dominating father, who abuses her mother. Her best friend, Atlas Corrigan, whom she helps when he's in a very low place in his life, and too good to be true neurosurgeon Ryle Kincaid, who has his own demons from the past. Just as Atlas follows his dream, so too does Lily and this leads her into the path of her future best friend Alyssa (Ryle's sister), who I have to say, is one of the nicest people ever. The story follows Lily as she struggles with her own past demons as she sees her life and her decisions spiralling out of control. Enter back into her life Atlas, who immediately starts questioning her life choices. The story makes so many statements about domestic violence and at the same time it is not judgemental. It left me very emotional, yet I still had the ability to feel for all the characters and their situations. A true masterpiece. The author also explains at the end of the book how the story came about, which furthermore adds to the emotions currently playing around in my head. A story that will stay with me forever. Highly recommend.

Emotional story

This story moved me in so many ways and has left me completely heartbroken. I fell head over in love with Ryle, I felt his pain, his torment between what he knew was wrong but couldn't put it right. He was such a broken character. Lily was strong and whilst her decisions broke my heart they were completely the right one.

This is such a powerful story and could easily be anyone of us right now. The narrative was good, read with plenty of emotion and a calmness where needed.

,I completely lost myself in this story brought to life a excellent narration.

Beautifully and sensitively written

Beautifully and sensitively written story that touches on some uncomfortable feelings and issues. Only qualm is the incredibility of the story and it feels a bit unrealistic at times but then again, it's not a biography.

Solid read

Took an unexpected (but very valuable) turn and departs from what you would expect of what you initially believe will be a straightforward love story. Very thought provoking indeed - worth the read!

This book absolutely destroyed me. I am a wreck! Hoovers books have always made me laugh, cry and cheer for the characters. But never have I ever felt total and utter despair, rage, longing, confusion nor personally hurt. Please read this book.

Entertaining yet thought provoking

Really enjoyed this story and the narrator was wonderful. I've struggled to finish some audio books because I found it hard to listen to the narrator. The storyline was very thought provoking and all to real, even in today's society. This is my first Colleen Hoover experience lol and it will not be my last xx♡xx

I couldn’t put this down!

Oh this book. They let you fall in love with Ryle & then out comes the monster within.
Lily is such a powerful character & this book carries an amazing message on domestic abuse cycles. The way Colleen captivates the strength it takes to walk away & break the cycle is so relative to so many women.
