I'm a year too late with this one, but you know how they say, better late than never. Finally, I've got the opportunity to read one more novel by Colleen Hoover, and boy, am I not happy to choose It Ends With Us!
There is just so much to say about this book, I don't even know where to start...
Lily Bloom has decided to live a happy life. The adds have, until now, never been in her favor, bus she has managed to finish school and college and move to Boston. Here she had the chance to start her own business and finally took control over her life.
Then she met Ryle Kincaid, the successful, charming and ambitious neurosurgeon who she fell in love with. But Ryle has a flaw - he doesn't do relationships.
It's not always easy to be with him, but there's something else Lily has to deal with - somebody else - Atlas Corrigan, her first love, the man that comes back and brings back old memories.
He was once her protector. Now, he could endanger everything Lily has created with Ryle.
Today we're looking at the Goodreads Choice Awards winner for the best romance novel of 2016. If you have a Goodreads account and read romance novels, I bet you've heard of It Ends With Us. Now it's time for you to read it.
This book is more than just a love story. The author herself would tell you (I've read this in one of her interviews) that she writes about social problems one can find in every type of society, and a love story would somehow just fit into it like a logical part of the bigger picture. For the author, this novel was more than just something she wrote - there are parts of this novel she actually lived herself. It was the most difficult novel she has ever written.
To create the character of Lily Bloom, she had to interview her mother and then she spend months wondering how the readers would react to the story she has offered. Just like Colleen's mother, Lily Bloom is the proof that the life is full of surprises and only the strongest ones are able to feel compassion.
The readers who have already read some of the novels by CoHo, know that she's the master of deep emotions, unexpected plot twists and amazing heroines.
This is a novel about the feminine strength and bravery. About decisions that change lives. If you read it, this book will change your life too.
