It Starts with Us by Colleen Hoover Book Summary

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).

It Starts with Us (Colleen Hoover) Book Reviews

Happy about itI kept rolling my eyes whenever Atlas writes a long letter to Lily. I just feel like its not necessary or maybe one letter is enough 😁 Overall all, it made me happy knowing that they both had a happy ending..Score: 4/5

Totally unnecessaryThis one 100% a cash grab after the success of iewu 😭😭 literally half of this book was copy and pasted from it.Score: 1/5

Thank youThank you for giving us more of the story! As sad as it was that Ryle couldn’t get it together, how can you not adore Atlas?! Great main and supporting characters! I hope there’s a 3rd book, but I do love a happy ending so I’m satisfied if it’s done here..Score: 5/5

Amazing book!Love this series and author! Great book!.Score: 5/5

DisappointedI was so exited to read this book. Waited for months for it. Sorely disappointed. The author could have gone so much deeper into this story! 500 pages of well the expected. This book left me just in awe of wow is that all she had!?! Sorry for those that love Colleen. I just felt like she really was lacking in this book..Score: 3/5

MehI had really good expectations towards this book because I love most of her books but most of all because It Ends With Us was an amazing book. I wasn’t as hooked and I feel like it could’ve been better! It was okay(:.Score: 3/5

GreatLove it.Score: 5/5

So beautifulI read both books in the series together even though they were years apart. I wished I would have read it ends with us years ago. I love romance but Colleen sets a new standard with her novels. I’ve laughed, cried, swooned, and angered reading these books like I was a character experiencing the moment. You need to read these books of two beautiful fish who fall in love, drift apart, and fall in love again..Score: 5/5

It’s okayIt wasn’t bad but a part 2 wasn’t needed. Ryle is still a butthole. And on the fence with Alyssa..Score: 3/5

Colleen Hoover does it again 😍I have been on a Colleen Hoover binge lately just trying to read everything she’s wrote so far. I loved it ends with us but I knew it was missing a happy ending. It starts with us is full of family dynamics & heartfelt moments. I absolutely love this romantic book, you’d have to read it for yourself to understand why it’s so great. It is quite cheesy sometimes but I enjoy the cheesy romance ❤️..Score: 5/5

Loved the first oneI skimmed most pages. Sadly, just couldn’t get into it. It just fell short after reading It Ends With Us. It felt like a Hallmark movie..Score: 2/5

2 1/2 out of 5The book was good but I felt like it was very rushed. (Spoiler) It would’ve been nice to see vows from Lily as well. Or even a wedding scene. It was so slow in the beginning and towards the end everything moved way too fast. Glad they got their happy ending but it would’ve been nice to see more detail near the ending..Score: 3/5

I don’t know how to feelI loved it ends with us, so finding out this one was coming out, I was ecstatic. While reading it it left me wanting more. It left me looking for something. It was a good read but did not have the same impact as it ends with us. I just wish I have more..Score: 3/5

SO CUTEThis book gets a lot of mixed reviews, and honestly for good reason. If you weren't absolutely in love with Lily and Atlas, there is really no reason to read this. I, on the other hand, felt like I didn't get enough of Lily and Atlas in IEWU so I liked getting to see more of them. This is basically just a super long epilogue for the first book. I enjoyed this book a lot because I already loved the characters and stuff, but this is definitely not a book you NEED to read after IEWU..Score: 4/5

ChildishAmateur author. Very slow, this is a teenage fantasy read- this book doesn’t hold a-lot of realistic qualities, despite both this and it’s prior trying to be reliable to common domestic abuse women face. It also felt like a lot of the moments were clearly thought out but a lot of the book felt like “yeah yeah, get to the point”. Once again I found the names to be awful, and the finding Nemo reference humor was much more present and absolutely awful..Score: 2/5

10/10.Literally, so pleased that Colleen Hoover decided to write a second book following It Ends With Us. I absolutely loved this book so much! I went through waves of emotions whilst reading - sad, happy, angry. In the end I couldn’t be happier with the outcome! Well worth the wait, as I preordered right after the first book. Just, THANK YOU! 😭💖.Score: 5/5
