We Never Forget Our First Love

It Ends With Us

by Colleen Hoover.

Lily meets and falls in love with Ryle Kincaid, a charming and successful neurosurgeon. However, as their relationship deepens, Lily discovers Ryle has a dark past that he has been hiding from her. Despite her reservations about getting involved with someone like Ryle, Lily can’t help but be drawn to him, and they begin a passionate and intense relationship.

As Lily and Ryle’s relationship deepens, however, Lily begins to see disturbing signs of violence and control in Ryle’s behavior. She is torn between her love for Ryle and her desire to protect herself and her future. The novel also explores Lily’s past relationship with her first love, Atlas Corrigan, who suddenly reappears in her life after a decade of separation and complicates her already complicated situation.

Hoover has written a powerful and emotional story that delves deep into the complexities of love, forgiveness, and the difficult choices that people must make when faced with the harsh realities of abuse. It ultimately delivers a powerful message about the importance of speaking out against abuse and breaking the cycle of violence.
