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).

    This is exactly what you need to follow up with after it ends with us. This book fills every gap and still is captivating.

    I just finished “it starts with us” I have a love hate relationship with the ending I wish I got more details on their wedding plus I feel like the ending was rushed. And I want to know more of what their future held. Like did she get another kid? How did Josh turn out? I was definitely wanting more. Still it was pretty good. I also feel like there should’ve been more details when it came to the sex scenes. Like gives me the goods? She literally just started the scene and then moved on like no gives me MORE! That’s why I don’t really like Colleen hover. Ana Huage on the other hand 😫😫😫 love her books. Can’t wait to buy the rest of the kings of sin series and the whole of love series.
  • Great Read
