(70)It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover

Lily Bloom has worked hard to put her ugly childhood behind her. She moved to Boston,  she got her degree and has started her own business, a flower shop. She is thrilled when she meets her new best friend, Alyssa.   She doesn't expect life to get any better, but it does when she meets Ryle Kincaid on the night of her father's funeral.   Ryle is everything that Lily had hoped to find in a partner.  Kind, honest, funny, dedicated, drop dead gorgeous, and a neurosurgeon to boot.  Lily falls head over heals in love with the man who appears to be everything her father wasn't.   Until one night when a moment of passion changes everything.  Lily's dream becomes a nightmare.  She is faced with the prospect of living the same life her mother did and she is torn between a future with Ryle or a future with her past, her first love, Atlas.  What will her choice be and what kind of impact will it have on her future?

From start to finish It Ends With Us is a deeply emotional book.   At first, I wasn't sure what to think of Lily or her relationship with Ryle. It was so perfect that I wasn't sure that I was going to like the book.  I did love Alyssa and her husband, Marshall.  They were funny and so good together. Plus Alyssa immediately became Lily's best friend and that is something that I think Lily was lacking.  There comes a certain point in the book when I was struck speechless.  Did that really happen?  I even had to read those pages a second time to make sure that I read them correctly.  I don't know that an author has ever tackled this topic with such emotional honesty.   By the end of the book,  I was a blubbering mess.  Seriously, not what I was expecting.  CLICK HERE FOR SPOILERS In a story like It Ends With Us it is hard to have an ending that leaves you feeling hopeful for all characters, but that was the case. I felt hopeful.

Bottom line - It Ends With Us takes on a pretty heavy topic that is guaranteed to get your emotions running high.  Be sure to read with a fresh box of tissues.
