IT ENDS WITH US

BY COLLEEN HOOVER

367 pages

‘It Ends with Us’ is a raw, heart wrenching romantic drama by best selling author Colleen Hoover and the Den’s book of moment for February - just in time for this month’s new Netflix adaptation starring Gossip Girl star, Blake Lively.

Based on the author’s own personal experiences, ‘It Ends with Us’ is Lily’s story, a young graduate who leaves her small town in Maine for Boston to pursue her entrepreneurial dreams of setting up a flower shop. On arrival Lily meets a charming, playful and successful neurosurgeon, Ryle. Attracted by his assertiveness and sometimes arrogance, Lily is smitten and starts a world wind romance which seems too good to be true. As the relationship becomes serious, Ryle unleashes his temper to reveal an abusive side that is uncomfortable for Lily. Love blurs her ability to assess the dangers and before we know it we are spiralling (with Lily) into a dark place. However her first love, Atlas unexpectedly appears back into her life and his suspicions surrounding Ryle are raised. But how and why can’t Lily see the direction of her relationship with Ryle?

The reader discovers a number of events and circumstances that affect Lily’s dilemmas surrounding Ryle and this gave book club plenty to discuss and debate. Not an easy read for some but it certainly encouraged us to understand how and why women become trapped in their relationships and are unable to assess its disturbing attributes. An emotional read for many of us and a taste of modern love affairs resulting in an addictive page turner.

The sequel 'It Starts With Us' is another bestseller by Hoover and also available in paperback.
