Summary:

In this “brave and heartbreaking novel that digs its claws into you and doesn’t let go, long after you’ve finished it” (Anna Todd, New York Times bestselling author) from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of All Your Perfects, a workaholic with a too-good-to-be-true romance can’t stop thinking about her first love.

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 where she grew up—she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. And when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life seems 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.

An honest, evocative, and tender novel, It Ends with Us is “a glorious and touching read, a forever keeper. The kind of book that gets handed down” (USA TODAY).

    I feel a bit guilty for wanting the "bad one" to be ok up until the end, when the last chapter changed it all. Very important book. Makes you think, feel and understand a bit more those women. Narrator was a bit flat most of the times..

    I have mixed emotions, angry at lily at first, in order for her to save her marriage she should be transparent and honest.. but also was thinking, past is past, what matters is the present and the future. Also i alluded her for standing up for her self and her offspring. The narrator i am not sure if im liking her or not… but the novel is very worth reading/listening.

    This book was ok. Like some others said before, it had a little bit of a young adult read feeling to me. I, however, was NOT a fan of the narrator. I feel like had I been reading this book on my own I would have really enjoyed the characters but the narrator cause them all to fall flat and not likable.

    In the end, I did like this book, it had a great message. Some parts were pretty corny and had a teen literature feel. It’s worth a read/listen.

    Bottom line, the underlying message was meaningful but I it took much to long to get to arrive, before navigating through some cheesy love scenes.

    This book was a tad Cheesy and felt a little like a teen read. I found the main character annoying a lot of the time, however the message was important and I did find myself wanting to finish the book to find out what happened to the characters.

    I am not a fan of this book - I struggled through it because I hate leaving a book unfinished; however, it was really difficult. I believe that the message is important and I thought the author made some excellent points (e.g., "Why do people never question the abuser in an abusive situation; why do we always ask 'why doesn't he/she just leave'"). The dialog was cheesy and predictable. At times I felt like she was trying to capture Christian Gray to portray Ryle. The plot was predictable after the scene where she was hit.

    I have no idea how this book has such a high rating! Perhaps a listener in the 10-13 age group would fine it appealing? Poorly written, very predictable.

    I assume I've chosen a teen read by mistake; I stopped reading books like this when I was 12! Characters have no depth or complexity whatsoever, scenes are completely devoid of atmosphere and dialogue is so cheesy and immature it's cringeworthy. I honestly can't believe this is for adults!

    predictable. pretty disappointed with the ending, it felt rushed. overall extremely overhyped. did not make me ‘shed a tear’ at all. really liked the narrator though

  • Stacie H.

    This book did not resonate with me. Made a good guy out to be a villain isn’t what I want to read about. There was no depth the characters.

  • Anonymous

    Loved everything about this book! Great Read! I loved the personal experience attached at the end. I liked the narrator!

  • Suzi M.

    I had high hopes for this I had heard a lot of good things about Colleen Hoover, I was sadly disappointed. Look as a Fill in don't care too much I'm on holiday novel it was ok, forgotten in a day. But I found the writing juvenile at best considering the topic, as forgive me but a Neurosurgeon that speaks like some plunket from the middle of nowhere, give me a break. As for the narration, I agree with many others this sounded like a Young Adult work. For someone that really wants to get to the heart of the matter in a story that a least sounds plausible there are much better offerings than this. The narrator was wooden and frankly not up to the task at all. Maybe reading the actual book as someone suggested might give you a better feel for the material, but this narrator actually detracted from the material.

    Good story, but a wee bit long

    The ending was perfectly written. Loved this one! It’s a page turner

    This book was amazing. It had me on the edge of my seat At the end I feel like she made the right choice and I’m happy that her friend supported her even tho she was Riles sister.

  • Richie P.

    Good Book

  • Savannah S.

    This was a good read, definitely made you think and question your own decision making and judgment. The plot itself was a little YA but overall a good read!

  • Taylor D.

    This book had me smiling and sobbing in 5 minutes. Absolutely amazing.

  • Anonymous

    The cheese factor for such a powerful subject was offputting. The prose combined with the childlike voicing compounded this. I finished the book but would not recommend it.

  • Joshua T.

    Great book. Meaningful

  • Lisa Van Laecken

    This book is unbelievable. it was my first Colleen Hoover -book. I loved it. It is a Must-Read!

  • Ali D.

    While I did enjoy the book for the most part I was not a fan of the narrator’s voice and felt it took away from the storyline.

  • Sally S.

    Really enjoyed this book. First time I have listened/read any of Coleen’s books. I will be coming back for more.

  • Anonymous

    I loved this book, make me think about abuse situation in another way.

  • Brookelyn S.

    Beautiful, heartbreaking, addicting…all the things Colleen Hoover’s books usually are! Can’t wait for the sequel.

  • Viridiana A.

    Made me tear up. Wonderful and captivating story.

  • Kalifa L.

    Narrator did her best with the poor material. But ultimately the book itself was bad and cringey. I think it was made worse to physically hear it and may have been slightly (only slightly) better if it was read instead of listened to. Horrible book. Good message tho.

  • Bree D.

    I really enjoyed it. I did listen at 1.5 speed so that helped it feel a little faster paced. I would recommend it.

  • Connie S.

    Great book, a little Harlequin romance novel like in parts but overall great storyline. Narrator’s voice was okay but there wasn’t much variation in the different character’s voices and after a while got hard to distinguish who was who. My favorite part though, was the author’s personal notes at the end, giving the book the reader just read (or listened to) that much more meaning.

  • Ebonique D.

    Loved this book. Gave me insight now relationships

  • Brittany W.

    So good!!!

  • Taylor S.

    Overall a great read with a great message! Definitely will be reading the sequel when it’s released. A few reviews say it seems a little bit for a younger audience, however, the main character is in her early 20’s and reflecting on her teenage years. That was to be expected in my opinion. Author does a great job in investing you in the characters.

  • Anita P.

    grear book

  • Sydney B.

    Helps you view people and where they came from a little differently

  • Kelley S.

    Great listen and message. Narrator was really good!

  • Rekha Mungra

    Beautiful encouraging story... Realistic Just loved it

  • Gina W

    Excellent love story! Also mind opening to what abuse looks like from two perspectives. This was a page turner for sure. I loved both of the main characters. So glad i listened to this book. I recommend it to everyone. Important message in this story. Very good narrator also!!

  • Maurene M.

    Very gripping. Had to listen to it for four hours straight to finish it. and I'm far from being a teenager.

  • Fay M.

    Really loved this book. Been in a bad relationship and wish I had had the strength her character did.

  • Nancy M.

    Beautiful story!

  • Kristina A.

    loved the story!

  • Jen J.

    Important read- worth getting through a bit of a predictable beginning, and the many twists and turns that follow. Just keep swimming through. Author's note at the end made this even more powerful.

  • Dominique B.

    I was unsure at first about this book. It kept me interested from the very start and took a completely different turn than what I was expecting. I think it's a book every single woman should read. It's very important. The authors note at the end had me crying just as much as the last two chapters. Give this book to your daughters.

  • Cheryl A.

    great book!!

  • Anonymous

    The writer and the narrator are very good.

  • Carly M.

    Wow—heart wrenching story.

  • Patricia G.

    great content but too many F bombs for me and you should know it has very explicit sex acts in it though nicely done . a subject that needs addressing . all in all a good job!

  • ClaraMaricela T.

    I found this book very authentic and relatable, I would highly recommend this book to anyone.

  • Nancy K.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book from beginning to end. The narrator was excellent, she really brought the characters to life. Although it was a difficult subject matter, it helped me have a better understanding of why strong & intelligent women have difficulties leaving an abusive relationship. Parts of the book were sad and hard to read, but it was a good story, with an inspirational ending.

  • Angel B.

    I really enjoyed this book. It helped me understand how someone could find themselves in such a difficult situation. I found myself wanting her to give him another chance, hoping he’d change but realizing that realistically he would not.

  • Anonymous

    Not a bad story but feels more like it belongs in young adult literature

  • Anonymous

    Such a moving story!!!

  • Anonymous

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. At first I thought I'd made a mistake because it seemed like a teenage romance but it certainly wasn't that. Having lived in an abusive relationship myself I could understand the hesitation in her making a decision about whether or not to end her marriage. People often criticise women who choose to stay in an abusive relationship but until you've walked in their shoes you will never understand. This story had a happy ending.

  • Carine

    Such a great book. So many emotions throughout the story. Such a sad reality that so many women do go through.

  • Becky F.

    absolutely love this book!

  • Andrea R.

    I loved this book, it is one of my favourite Colleen Hoover books. Important story, loved the characters. Sometimes it was tough to read but a great story.

  • Anonymous

    would love a second book!!! I need to know what happens next!!

  • Tricia R

    Wow ... Awesome book .... I personally enjoyed it and was totally into the book.., great insight about abuse ... ty for writing this book and the epilogue .... explaining why 20 Stars if it were possible continue writing Narrator was great too good pick

  • Michelle L

    Good book that touches on a number of social issues. The romance was a bit steamy, but the author eloquently described the thought process and experience of a woman involved in an abusive relationship. It is easy to pass judgement on situations like this if you've never been in a emotionally or physically abusive situation, but in my opinion it was a good message for those who have experienced it, and an educational experience for those who haven't if you have an open mind.

  • Jocelyn Corral

    I enjoyed the book. The main characters justifications did get frustrating but overall I agree it is an important message. This was my first attempt to listen to an audio book and won't be my last.

  • Britt Basse

    Such an important book! Colleen Hoover did it again!

  • Eris Oba

    Awesome! Colleen Hoover has written her best book yet today. This is an eye opening to all.

  • Judith Silvasy

    Loved it. Have told all my friends to get it. My favorite of all her books so far.

  • Nina Amjadian

    Amazing book. Loved every second of it. Also really liked the narrator's voice. All and all; fantastic!

  • Lisha Blackburn

    I love this book. Lovely, dangerous and dark. The narrator is a bit awkward at time, but over all, I am glad I read this book.

  • Bernard LeVert

    This was a very powerful book. A learning experience for the unfamiliar with abuse. The ending was unpredictable but showed great judgement and concern for the main character's well being and that of her child.

  • Cathe Roy

    This is my first read by this author and I loved the book. I loved the characters and found myself totally lost in the story. I listen while I take my morning walk and found I wanted to keep listening so I ended up walking longer. A win win in!

  • Vanessa Carley

    This is by far Colleen Hoover's best work yet. This is not at all like her previous stories. This one is raw and pulls at your heart in so many ways. As you follow young teenaged Lily, your heart breaks for her, then when you follow her as an adult, you're proud of her. Right when you think you know what is going on in her life, and you think you know the direction it is going, the story turns on you. When it happens, it shocks you. At least I was. I literally sat up in my seat thinking, wait did that really happen? I also appreciated the authors note at the end because it helped me understand why Colleen took a different path with this novel. I think because of the honesty she poured into it, that it was able to hit so heavily. This story has burrowed into my skull and I'll most likely listen to it several times the way I have with Ugly Love. I definitely recommend this.

    Wonderful! My first time ever listening to a book that wasn't a self help audiobook.
