Adults’ Book of the Month

It Ends with Us, written by Colleen Hoover

ISBN-13:9781501110368 is available on Amazon

This month’s book of the month is the story of Lily, who hasn’t always had it easy, and works hard for the life she wants. She’grew up in a small town—she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. Then, she meet a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, and everything in Lily’s life seems too good to be true.

Ryle is assertive, stubborn, and maybe even a little arrogant. However, he’s also sensitive, brilliant, and has a soft spot for Lily. 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. Atlas suddenly reappears, and threatening everything Lily has built with Ryle.

This book is part of the series, the prequel to It Starts With Us. It Ends with Us will be a motion picture in 2024, starring Blake Lively and Justin Baldoni.
