Blog Tour: It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover - Review + Giveaway!

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

With this bold and deeply personal novel, Colleen Hoover delivers a heart-wrenching story that breaks exciting new ground for her as a writer. Combining a captivating romance with a cast of all-too-human characters, It Ends With Us is an unforgettable tale of love that comes at the ultimate price.

Colleen Hoover is just amazing. Something about her books inspire me and I can see why this book is changing people’s lives.

Lily is an awe-inspiring character. I think it is best to go into this novel completely blind so I don’t want to spoil anything at all. But really all you need to know is Lily is incredibly strong, stronger than any other character I’ve read about. If I was ever in her situation, I can only hope I would be as strong as her.

Atlas was a perfect gentleman. I fell in love with him instantly and he held my heart throughout. He is respectful and nice and perfect. Again, if I was in the same situation as Lily, Atlas is the only man I would ever want by my side.

The plot of this standalone is incredible. Again, I am so glad that the synopsis gives nothing away because it would detract from the beauty of going in blind. Seriously, avoid spoilers for this book at all costs!!!!

Oh and the ‘note from the author’ at the end is beautiful. I shed tears from it alone. As always, I cannot wait for what she has in store next.

Review: A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

Feyre survived Amarantha's clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can't forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin's people.

Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two.

With more than a million copies sold of her beloved Throne of Glass series, Sarah J. Maas's masterful storytelling brings this second book in her seductive and action-packed series to new heights.
I absolutely cannot express how much I love and adore this series of Sarah’s. Well, really both of her best selling fantasy series. I can’t stress how amazing the sequel to A Court of Rose and Thorns was, but I will attempt it!

Feyre has grown so much in this installment and it amazed me. She was not in a good place in the beginning but those around her could not see the darkness that was enveloping her. She needed to escape and luckily she was able to. Her strength is one of the strongest I’ve ever seen and I have never been more inspired by a heroine. She does not rely on anyone, even the hero, like so many others do.

Speaking of the sexiest hero ever….the award goes to Rhysand, High Lord of the Night Court. Oh my goodness I was constantly swooning in his presence and with every word he said. I am also in awe of him, since there is nothing I love more than a man who knows the strength of his woman and knows that they do not need assistance. He is the perfect companion for Feyre!

I am in love with every single word that Sarah writes. I could not (willingly) put the book down, and when I was forced to, it was always on my mind. The romance in the sequel is breathtakingly beautiful. The slow build made it really worth it for me. When the culmination happened…wow. Let me tell you, there was nothing better!

When the third and final installment of one of my favorite series comes out, I will run to the bookstore with bells on.

Favorite Swoon-worthy Quote: So I turned around again, meeting Rhysand’s now-blazing eyes, and then licked up the column of his throat. Wind and sea and citrus and sweat. It almost undid me. I faced forward and Rhys dragged his mouth along the back of my neck, right over my spine, just as I shifted against the hardness pushing into me, insistent and dominating. Precisely as his hand slid a bit too high on my inner thigh.
