“This sequel to BookTok phenom It Ends With Us stands on its own, a portrait of the dynamics of domestic violence.” ― People

“Hoover breaks hearts all over again in this stunning sequel to her bestselling It Ends with Us . . . The author’s talent for creating nuanced and empathetic characters is on full display, and fans will be especially excited to finally hear Atlas’s side of the story.

    I’ve read a few reviews about this book not having a plot, or being completely unnecessary in its existence. But, being a product of an abusive household, and experiencing an abusive romantic relationship myself, this sequel brought such an inexplicable peace to my life. There were such poignant quotes that explained the ups and downs of abuse and its aftermath so perfectly, that I will take them with me forever.Thankfully, I’m at the point where I have found my own “Considerate Atlas” that brings me joy and cooks me delicious food. I could relate to Lily as a wife, girlfriend, and mom. To me, the plot read easily. And, despite it not being a heart stopping thriller, kept me hooked and engaged so that I finished this in 2 days. I understand this book might not be for everyone, but if any of what I have written connects with you, I’d give it a try.

    The true sign of a good book is that it ALWAYS leaves the readers wanting more and that’s why we have It Starts With Us because at the end of It Ends With Us everyone wanted more. I really loved that this picked up exactly where It Ends With Us left off. The progression throughout the whole book was great and I really loved getting Atlas’ POV on things, this is his story.For me this book was everything because it shows the reality that even long after a person gets out of a domestic violence situation it’s not over, it takes a lot of mental healing, physical and emotional also. Especially when you’re still faced with the fact that your abuser is the father of your child and you have to learn how to co parent with them but still protect your child in the process. It’s a constant battle, but eventually you realize you can be happy again and Lily finally realizes that with Atlas patiently waiting for her the whole time and showing her that she deserves love. (Considerate Atlas will always win in my book and the spot in my heart for him will always be there.)The book had an introduction of new characters, Theo and Josh. I loved getting to know about them more and I swear I’d read a novella of Theo alone, the kid is freaking funny. I love that Atlas is able to give Josh the foundation of a family he has been longing for, for so long. Add, Emerson in the mix she, Atlas, Lily and Josh are a perfect blend of family.Would I like more? Of course, because Colleen has a way of writing that immerses us into these characters lives to the point you’re praying for their safety, wishing nothing but happiness (except you Ryle Kincaid) and wondering what the heck they’re up to long after the book is over. I truly couldn’t think of a better way to end the novel, not everyone has agreed on this and that’s okay. However, my heart is happy and content that Lily and Atlas got a second chance at love and are living a life where they are both happy. Thank you Colleen for this book it is everything and then some.

    Like my review to the first book- I couldn’t get enough!!! For someone who never enjoyed reading these two books completely changed my POV on reading. I’ve since purchased another one of Colleen’s books and I cannot wait to start that tomorrow! I loved that this book went back and forth between Lily and Atlas. I hope there is another book after this one showing if Ryle has changed at all, and watching how the “new” family morphs together!!! I read both ‘It ends with us & It starts with us’ in less than a week. That is something I have NEVER done let alone done with two books. These books went into so much detail that I could not only picture every little detail but I felt like I was on the emotional rollercoaster with the characters. 10/10 stars!

    ‘It Starts With Us’ is the sequel book for Colleen Hoover’s best-selling novel “It Ends With Us’. This book begins immediately after It ends with us when lily was dragged through a divorce and domestic abuse from her partner Riley. “It Ends With Us” is a must-read before moving on to “It Starts With Us’. ‘It Starts With Us’ is a more uplifting read than it ends with us. Lily Bloom and Atlas Corrigan have a second chance at their childhood love but not without many struggles and situations they have to tread carefully. To me, this novel, unlike many I have read, didn’t feel like it was drugged and unnecessary. The plot lines transitioned very seamlessly throughout the two books not leaving unanswered questions between one and the other. Though it is the sequel, it ends with us. It has its very own unique plot and doesn’t feel repetitive. Taking you through many new character paths and revealing more about each character. The portrayal by Colleen Hoover of a divorced family dynamic and co-parenting situations is very accurate in the sense I have gone through this with my own family. Lily is trying to pursue this relationship with Atlas but still trying to respect her ex-husband Ryle. In time as the book progresses Lily Bloom realizes she deserves the love that Atlas gives her. Once she realizes she deserves this love Atlas and Lily work to rekindle the love they felt for each other as kids. There are different repercussions to this love forming again. The love that is portrayed through the two characters is genuine and child-like in a way making it easy to fall in love with it. Though this book travels through a lot of people’s instances of love there are always instances of hatred. Throughout the book, there are instances where it is hard to tell who is right and who is wrong, or what is right and what is wrong. She never makes the antagonist truly the antagonist; she makes them ready to feel empathy towards them because it may not be their fault it’s happening. They may just be stuck in a cycle. “It starts with us giving us more of the background of Atlas Corrigan’s life than we got in. It ends with us where it was mainly only Lily’s point of view.‘It Ends With Us’ takes you through the emotional roller coaster of domestic abuse happening and there being someone in that situation that has the resources to break out. “It Starts With Us’ is a story of rekindling love and hope for recovery from her earlier abuse. This book is proving that not every love is unconditional. They can be toxic and unhealthy, but there are those once-in-a-lifetime loves like Atlas and Lilys. Relationships are flawed and nothing comes easy. “It Starts With Us” is a beautiful and comforting read. The novel gently sorts through the aftermath of complications in “It Ends With Us”. This sequel demonstrates the sense that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. There is a chance to have happiness even in fearful situations.“It starts with us” successfully brings forth lilies and atlases story at their second chance at true love. (This is for an English class )

    Toll!Das Buch “It Ends with Us” von Colleen Hoover ist wirklich beeindruckend. Es ist eine emotionale und bewegende Geschichte, die komplexe Themen anspricht. Ich schätze besonders die Tiefe der Charaktere und wie die Autorin mit schwierigen Themen umgeht. Es ist definitiv ein berührendes Buch, das zum Nachdenken anregt. Natürlich hängt die Bewertung immer von den individuellen Vorlieben und Empfindungen ab, aber insgesamt hat das Buch eine große Eindruck bei mir hinterlassen.

    Perfect conclusion and holiday readHaving loved the first book I was eager to start the second, but life got in the way and have only just joined the party.Though the story line isn’t a jaw dropping one, it’s REAL, and I loved this.It’s what happens to real people in real difficult situations. Therefore, it’s gripping.The writing was lovely, even if I did find a few editing errors, but on the whole, it was captivating.I’m a sucker for a happy ending and this had it in spades. I have to say, even though I love Atlas and Lily, I enjoyed Theo and Josh tremendously. They were fantastic additions to the story. They remind me of my brats!All in all, this was a beautiful read.

    Gute ErzählweiseDie story finde ich sehr schön erzählst, es hat mich sogar in vielen Passagen an mich selbst erinnert, man sollte natürlich der englischen Sprache mächtig sein 😊 sonst kommt das nicht so gut rüber.
