Do not misunderstand my rating, I did not love this book.
I picked it up thinking it’s gonna be another romance novel. I wanted something light after reading a 700 page classic retelling. I picked this up.
There are things that I liked about this book. As someone who can understand the impact domestic violence and abuse can have on someone, I was able to understand why some women (or men or non binary person) find it hard to walk away from their abuser.
I liked that it tried to make us understand that we tend to shift the blame towards the victim of the abuse for staying than towards the perpetrator of the abuse. I loved the character Atlas and the protagonist’s relationship with her mom.
My issue however was that, walking away from the relationship, as hard as it could be, is not the only thing that someone on the receiving end has to do. I believe that a victim of abuse doesn’t just magically turn out okay the moment the perpetrator vanishes. Throughout the book, the main character Lily, who clearly has been through a lot in her life as well as her mother, who was a victim of abuse, have not been seeking help from a doctor. Towards the end they just magically get happy by dating “good” guys?
Are emotionally available and kind people equivalent to required mental health?
I believed that Lily, her mom and the male character Ryle, all of them needed help.
I also did not see any sort of depth in Ryle and Lily’s relationship which makes me wonder if Lily is just attracted to his toxic and arrogant personality.
As the author herself is someone who (as she shared in her notes) has been a victim of abuse. I failed to understand how she could be marketing the very trope that mentally breaks children and family members around the world through other books of hers.
Why are toxic protagonists being romanticised to this date?
I do not get it and I do not think I ever will. It makes my blood boil that authors who have the power to shed light on surviving and mental health issues and have a huge amount of impressionable audience fail to nip it in the bud and stop giving out these “toxic baddies” painted in pretty colours one after the other like a vending machine.
It needs to stop. Years ago, if I read this novel or any other work by Colleen Hoover, I would find it okay considering how I had no clue what a healthy male is like, unfortunately. This is exactly why I’m worried about books like this.
A real emotional roller coaster of a book. Some parts make you smile, some are deeply uncomfortable, and some heartbreaking.
This is a book where I think context matters, and knowing why Colleen Hoover decided to write a story featuring abuse as a major plot point. A worthwhile read, and also one where content warnings at the start of the book would be helpful.
I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. The story was compulsively readable, but I can't say I liked it. It was a heartbreaking picture of an abusive relationship, but the letters to Ellen and the behavior of Ryle in his early meetings with Lily just felt off to me. At least I know what everyone is raving about now, though it's not for me.

Such an amazing book. Colleen Hoover never disappoints. It Ends With Us is a story of abuse. So many have fallen victims of their spouses abusing them physically. We all wonder why they never leave. Colleen Hoover tells us in It Ends With Us and also that we do not have to suffer because of love. We all deserve much more. Read the book to know how and why people should leave abusive homes even when we are already deep in love. Thanks to the author. Such a book to make your day.
"The newest, highly anticipated novel from beloved #1 New York Times bestselling author, Colleen Hoover. Sometimes it is the one who loves you who hurts you the most. Lily hasn't always had it easy, but that's never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She's come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up--she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily's life suddenly seems almost too good to be true. Ryle is assertive, stubborn, maybe even a little arrogant. He's also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily. And the way he looks in scrubs certainly doesn't hurt. 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. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened. With this bold and deeply personal novel, Colleen Hoover delivers a heart-wrenching story that breaks exciting new ground for her as a writer. Combining a captivating romance with a cast of all-too-human characters, It Ends With Us is an unforgettable tale of love that comes at the ultimate price"--
