It Starts with Us

Before It Ends with Us, it started with Atlas. Colleen Hoover tells fan favorite Atlas’s side of the story and shares what comes next in this long-anticipated sequel to the “glorious and touching” (USA TODAY) #1 New York Times bestseller It Ends with Us.
Lily and her ex-husband, Ryle, have just settled into a civil coparenting rhythm when she suddenly bumps into her first love, Atlas, again. After nearly two years separated, she is elated that for once, time is on their side, and she immediately says yes when Atlas asks her on a date.
But her excitement is quickly hampered by the knowledge that, though they are no longer married, Ryle is still very much a part of her life—and Atlas Corrigan is the one man he will hate being in his ex-wife and daughter’s life.
Switching between the perspectives of Lily and Atlas, It Starts with Us picks up right where the epilogue for the “gripping, pulse-pounding” (Sarah Pekkanen, author of Perfect Neighbors) bestselling phenomenon It Ends with Us left off. Revealing more about Atlas’s past and following Lily as she embraces a second chance at true love while navigating a jealous ex-husband, it proves that “no one delivers an emotional read like Colleen Hoover” (Anna Todd, New York Times bestselling author).

Rushed3By lionxzzYou can feel that this book was an after thought. There were cute moments but overall felt like a teenager book. The first definitely out shined this one.
Meh2By Rubster1313It was ok but nothing to get excited over. Ending seemed rushed
Too Sappy2By kglipeI read the first book in this series and loved it so I bought the second one to see how the story ends. It was a little too sappy for me and nothing really exciting happens. Atlas seems just a little too perfect. I kept waiting for some intense, dramatic scene between Ryle and Atlas which starts to happen but then fizzles out.
Meh3By KaydamonsterIt was okay, liked the first one better.
I need more of Lily & Atlas5By Jackie.lowreyI’m too invested in these two and their love story. This was such a happy read and I wish it went on forever. It took me one day and I wish I took my time to savor it. Lily & Atlas came to life in my head and I think the author did an incredible job with the imagery.
Didn’t even finish2By chrjfhfhhfhdhcMaybe I’ll pick it up again one day, but not impressed at all.
