It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover

Rating: Five stars
Date published: August 2, 2016

Synopsis from Goodreads:
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.

Ever since I finished It Ends with Us, I've been trying to think of what I could possibly say in this review. The truth of the matter is that It Ends with Us is better to go into blind. I want other readers to go fall in love with fall in love with Ryle along with Lily. I want them to feel Lily's heartbreak right along with her.

I will say this, though. It Ends with Us is Hoover's best work. The writing and the emotions were so spot on. I devoured it and spent all of release day reading when I came home from work. It completely wowed me and made me feel a whole plethora of emotions. It'll break your heart, but I promise you'll be happy about it. I highly recommend picking up this novel. You won't regret it.

I think that's all I can say without giving away spoilers.
