This is a story about a married couple who is falling apart after many years of infertility and unspoken words. They have to decide if their perfect beginning can help them get back to a perfect ending. For a complete summary, you can go here.
I'll be completely honest, when I started reading this book, I thought it felt familiar. I thought it would be like a lot of other books I have read (for some reason I was getting a What Alice Forgot vibe at first). I also always doubt Colleen Hoover. In my mind, I always think it’s impossible for an author with such die-hard fans to actually be good. But, oh my God, I eat up every single one of her books, including this one. She always proves me wrong.
What I loved most about this book is that it felt real to me. Perhaps it’s because I’ve been married for a while now, so I am getting bored of reading love-at-first-sight novels. It is refreshing to read about people who have been married for about the same amount of time I have. And, perhaps, that is why I sat in bed ugly crying while reading this book. [Pro tip: don't read this book in public].
I also loved the ending. Given the circumstances of the book, I thought the ending was believable. I hate endings in books like this that try to make everything too perfect, just for the sake of a happy ending. I want an ending that make sense for the circumstances, even if it isn’t the outcome the characters wanted. Hoover did a great job of finding that balance.
(Ahem, this book also gives some more risqué love scenes than any of Hoover’s other books that I have read.)
I highly recommend this book, but I think women will love it the most. I even gave it my Best Book Award. If you are interested in buying the book, you can buy it here. After you have read it, leave a comment and let me know what you think!
