Publisher Description

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Starts with Us and All Your Perfects, a “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) about a workaholic with a too-good-to-be-true romance can’t stop thinking about her first love—soon to be a major motion picture starring Blake Lively and Justin Baldoni.

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).

Anxious Face with sweat“The book shows that abusive relationships are not always black and white and easy to get out of. The torn feelings of Lily are described pretty good. Nice way to include the past by using the diary entries, even though it’s quite awful to be writing entries to Ellen Degeneres. Sometimes a bit too many coincidences, it feels a bit constructed and not too realistic at points.”

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“A lot of people jank on this book for “supporting” SA and abuse but it perfectly describes how it is to live in that type of situation!! This book got me into reading it’s so great! The romance isn’t to soon and it drags a lot of amazing details. I will say the Ellen notes and the worst part, having to read them for no absolute reason 🥲”

Surprised Face with Open Mouth“Had to read until I was finished. This book wasn't too cringe when it came to romance, it did not feel like a wattpad book too much, unlike Maybe Not (I do not even know if I can eveb finish MN). The plot twist within the book, in the midst of thinking everything was fine, is a great thing in my opinion.”

Expressionless Face“Her thought process regarding her abusive relationship felt hard to relate to in my opinion and the romance story of both of her relationships sounded unrealistic. I can understand why it’s popularly reviewed as a good read, just not a favorite of mine. Personally, I’d say it was cliché and stressful to get through.”

Expressionless Face“Edited: Not what it's cracked up to be! The writing style was horrible, and the dialogue was painfully cringy. If I wanted to read something straight out of Wattpad, I would've done so. I'm not too fond of the author overly romanticizing abusive relationships or characters (Ryle), especially when she put no effort into the victim/lead's character development. It seemed as if Lily's redemption focused more on her filling the void and finding someone else than doing the necessary steps to healing and growing (like taking accountability, seeking a therapist, etc.). Empathizing with Lily was effortless, but seeing zero growth is unfortunate. Why was it okay to make the abuse as "realistic as possible" but not Lily's transformation?”
