In this “brave and heartbreaking novel that digs its claws into you and doesn’t let go, long after you’ve finished it” (Anna Todd, New York Times bestselling author) from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of All Your Perfects, a workaholic with a too-good-to-be-true romance can’t stop thinking about her first love.

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 where she grew up—she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. And when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life seems 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.

An honest, evocative, and tender novel, It Ends with Us is “a glorious and touching read, a forever keeper. The kind of book that gets handed down” (USA TODAY).


  • I have to lie, I’m really impressed

    By tyrannitar
    Just kind of a sad and boring book. The whole time reading it I just felt like I was watching a car crash in slow motion. Character development was subpar at best.
  • Best. Book. Ever.

    Just read it. You don’t even need to know what it’s about. It’s amazing.
  • LOVE

    SUCH a good book and it really shows you the raw truth of the world of love. Also I’m going to read it again and again and again just because of how beautiful this story is.
  • Absolutely Incredible

    By jvstcallmety
    This book has shattered every part of my heart and somehow mended it all back together. I don’t know whether to cry or smile or scream, but whatever it is that I’m feeling, is a lot. Thank you for this, for this fleeting moment. I’m so lucky that books like this exist, sometimes you need the escape and this one? This one was perfect.
  • Wow.

    I can’t begin to justly describe how great this book is. It is raw and real, and sexy and heartbreaking. Just SO good. Read it.
  • It’s so sad

    I’m not someone who constantly reads, I’m not even sure when the time I even read a book let alone finished one. But I finished this book in 3 days! It was so good. There were so many emotions going on throughout the book and I absolutely loved the ending. 12/10 would recommend reading it!
  • best book ever.

  • Riveting. Emotinal. Raw. Digging deep.

    Lily’s love life had me on the edge of my seat through and through. The writing was absolutely fabulous. I guess I just felt like Lily could have attempted to get help for Ryle whether that be in the form of medication and/or therapy. Not only was he suffering from PTSD but probably has a real disorder. I feel there’s still such a stigma surrounding mental health. He’s a broken person who needs help. Especially before he’s able to be a fit dad. Maybe it would have saved them, too. Just something I thought could have been expanded upon. ❤️
