My First Impression
- I know I am so late to read this book and review it But, here is my naked truth, I was skeptical to read this book. Why?
- I am not so much into romantic novels and the title itself suggests, It Ends with Us, I always thought two lovers met and ended together.
- But I was wrong, it is not going to be a clichélove story.
Part of me wanted to move ahead and read this hyped book, so I grab my kindle and read it and I loved it. Let’s discuss this book in detail.
Lily Bloom is the only child of her parents, living in Maine with her parents. But she is not happy to live with them. As she always saw her mother getting beaten up by her father for trivial things, and he never apologized for his wrongdoing. Lily Bloom’s mother suffered everything and didn’t utter a single word against his father.
Some questions always pop up in Lily’s mind. Why can’t her mother leave him and lead a happy and single life? Why she is bound to live with him, even if he beats him brutally?
Amongst all the turmoil going on in her teenage days, she met with an orphanage boy, named Altas, who came to live in an abandoned house adjacent to Lily’s house. Lily used to provide essential supplies to Atlas and even welcomed him into her house in the absence of her parents. Gradually they fall in love. But the story doesn’t end here. Atlas moved to Boston to join the military and they got apart.
Lily Bloom studied and graduated and moved to Boston in her adulthood days. She met with a handsome, charming, sexy boy, named Ryen Kincaid. They met and fall in love.
Everything seems perfect to you? Am I right?
Wait .. Hold your horses! Don’t jump on the gun.
Everything is going to be topsy-turvy with the reappearance of Atlas in Lily’s life.
Will Ryen count on Lily or something is going to change in their relationship?
How good are the characters?
Lily Bloom is an ambitious and unpliant girl. She does the things, that she always loves. She opened her own business, took it to the next level, and get herself a stand in her life.
Lily Bloom took some brave decisions regardless of being a mother of a daughter. I really loved, how first she tried to work on her relationship with Ryen. She was always there to help Ryen in managing his anger issues.
She always compared her marriage with her parent’s marriage. But she was never ready to follow the path of her mother.
I, even like the Character, Ryen, ambitious and workaholic. When it comes to the relationship, I found him sometime surreal.
I fall in love with Atlas, his simple behavior, and true feelings for Lily made me fall in love with him again and again. Even though, the side characters, Allysa and Marshall, were so lively and helpful made they both laugh and cry.
- This book talks about the dilemma etched in every women’s mind after marriage and baby.
- What would happen if I leave my husband?
- What would be my Child’s future after divorce?
- Will I be able to maintain the same standard of living?
- Ok, he beats me but he loves my child. No one is going to love my child like him.
This book talks about the JUST THINK, what you are suffering, domestic violence is not allowed, and no one can let you down or beat you up for trivial things.
YOU COULD BE LILY’S MOTHER OR LILY BLOOM. THE CHOICE IS YOURS.
What I didn’t like?
Obviously, every story has some points, which readers do not like. If I talk about this book, the cliché love triangle of Atlas, lily, and Ryen. The same bickering for an ex-lover.
This book is worth the hype. I absolutely recommend you guys to please read this book as this book contains magical writing of @collenhoover, laugh, cry, and fall in love with Ryen and Lilly.
