“Take me into my room, Vaughn. Take control so I don’t have to. I want you to. I want you to lay me down on that bed and take what you want. You want to, right?” I looked deep into his hard eyes and shivered at the heat I found in them. “I bet you’ve thought about it. Fucking the hostile Princess of the Boardwalk into submission.”
“I’ve wanted you just like this. That smart mouth of yours sweet. That sexy body of yours mine to do with as I please. And I don’t like wanting something I can’t have.”
“Do you sell a hole in the ground?”
“Uh …”
“I’d really like to buy one. You know so it can swallow me.”
“Well … I’ll have to ask Bob if we sell those.”
“I was just wondering.”
“If it’s uncomfortable.”
“If what’s uncomfortable?”
“Having your head that far up your ass.”
“You’re a real comedian today, Lawson.”

Favorite Quotes

Did you just knock on twenty-nine doors so you could tell me that the thought of me is making your life hell and I should have sex with you so that you’ll never have to think of me again?
It’s not a person’s actions that hurt the most. It’s the love. If there was no love attached to the action, the pain would be a little easier to bear.


“Colleen Hoover reminds readers that love is a fragile thing, built from courage, hope, and tears. Every person with a heartbeat should read this book.”
Kami Garcia, #1 New York Times bestselling author

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 the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Slammed, This Girl, Point of Retreat, Hopeless, Losing Hope, Finding Cinderella, Maybe Someday, Ugly Love, Maybe Not, and Confess. She lives in Texas with her husband and their three boys. Please visit ColleenHoover.com.

Favorite Quotes

A man needed wanting.  What was the point of having wealth, power and the body of a man half his age if no one bothered to use him for it?
He didn’t understand it, being a lover of women himself, but he never judged any man or woman for their bedtime predilections.  As his uncle Andre told him at age sixteen, “As long as nobody gets hurt and it doesn’t spook the horses, do what you want and keep the details to yourself.”
Now it was her turn to spin on her bar stool, ninety degrees, and she met him face on with full eye contact, fearless and shameless. “I could own you by morning.”

Favorite Quotes

” She was born of love between her parents. She was raised, at least her first few years, in a home of love. Even Jack & Devin loved on her when she was younger. That is why she’s able to feel things other women can only dream of. That’s what makes her so powerful. That’s what makes her so vulnerable. “
” Almost four years had passed since I had been held in a manner that didn’t involve sex. Four years since I heard the words “I Love You.” “
“Sometimes people leave such a deep imprint on our hearts that they never go away.

Favorite Quotes

“He stopped behind me and trailed a black braided leather whip on the floor in a circle around me. I shuddered as he trailed it up my back and then slowly wrapped it around my neck once, twice, three times. I held my breath. I knew what he’d do next, just not when he would do it. The longer he waited, the harder it was to time my breathing.”
“His breathing was shallow and ragged, his moans deepened as he grabbed fistfuls of my hair. He pulled hard, but it felt good. I liked him controlling me. I could tell he was getting close when he yanked himself out of my mouth and pulled me up by my hair to stand in front of him.”
“You will please each of the men up here with me. You will greet them. Then you will ask them how they want to be pleased. And then you will do it. Do you understand?

“He removed his fingers and brought them to his mouth, sucking on them as he watched me. I bit my lip and he smiled. “Delicious. I think I need another taste.

Favorite Quotes

“Ben,” I say, narrowing my eyes. “Are you…booksting me?”
He cocks an eyebrow. “Booksting?”
“Yeah. When a hot guy talks books with a girl  It’s like sexting, but out loud and with books instead of sex. Nor does it have to do with texts. Okay, so it’s nothing like sexting, but it made sense in my head.”
Guys see boobs coupled with a great sense of humor and think they’ve found the holy fucking grail.
“Baby,” he says, his lips forming a smile. “You have already made this the best sex I’ve ever had and I’m not even inside you yet.”
He’s soaking me up like it’s a privilege rather than a favor.
“Do fictional boyfriends cry as much as I do?” I ask her. She laughs.
“Only the really great ones.”

Favorite Quotes

His hand on my lower back… just inches away from my ass. And if he was going to touch my ass, it was basically the same as him touching me between my legs. So, yes, my brain reacted like Niall Stella was touching my clit and I nearly tripped and sprawled flat in the intersection.
“Do I love your taste?”
With apparent effort, she said, “You know you do.”
“It makes me wild, doesn’t it? it makes me….”
“Hard,” she finished for me.
Looking up at her I told her, “I’m not making love to you tonight with anything but my hands – but I want you to come so violently on my fingers that you’ll wake in the middle of the night desperate to recreate it…” I kissed her shoulder, murmuring, “only to fail.”
Her mouth fell open.
“You won’t have the right angle, you see.” I ran a finger along her jaw. “Or the right size of finger, or depth. But mostly you’ll fail at making yourself feel as good as I will because you won’t be patient.”
“Put your mouth… there.”
I fought my smile. “Where, exactly?”
Her eyes met mine, softening. “You know where.”
“Your cunt, darling?” I whispered.
“Good, because I know we need to talk. But right now I want to put my mouth on you and sing God Save the Queen.”
“It feels a little wicked, still,” he admitted, kissing the inside of my thigh. “Like it’s naughty to stare at your tits, very naughty to watch you masturbate, exceedingly naughty to put my fingers inside of you, but to actually put my tongue here?” He licked me, humming, “This sweet place only I can see? Well that feels sublimely naughty.”

    Love is hysteria, and summer makes it worse. Heat spreads the fever. Madness.
    “Stay still. Be a good girl. Watch.”
    When she’s bad, I want to tell her so. I want to take out my anger on her gorgeous body. She doesn’t understand how it provokes me, the sight of her. I am constantly aching.

    “They matched. God made them this way so they would recognize themselves as meant for one another when they were born, so they would always find each other no matter where they were on Earth.”
    “I’m closing my eyes so I can feel being inside you.” He placed his hand over his heart and rasped out, “I’ve seen too many bad things with these eyes. This, I will feel in my heart.”
    “I didn’t know believing you had lost your soul mate and then having them re-enter your life made the word ‘relief’ too simple of an emotion, because the reality of having your heart fixed back together was too indescribable for words.”

    Favorite Quotes

    When it comes to girls (and in Colin’s case, it so often did), everyone has a type. Colin Singleton’s type was not physical but linguistic: he liked Katherines. And not Katies or Kats or Kitties or Cathys or Rynns or Trinas or Kays or Kates or, God forbid, Catherines. K-A-T-H-E-R-I-N-E. He had dated nineteen girls. All of them had been named Katherine. And all of them- every single solitary one- had dumped him.
    I love you, Katherine. The name sounded different in his mouth when spoken to her; it became not the name with which he had been so long obsessed, but a word that described only her, a word that smelled like lilacs, that captured the blue of her eyes and the length of her eyelashes.
    What is the point of being alive if you don’t at least try to do something remarkable? How very odd, to believe God gave you life, and yet not think that life asks more of you than watching TV.
    It rather goes without saying that Katherine drank her coffee black. Katherines do, generally. They like their coffee like they like their ex-boyfriends: bitter.
    He wanted to draw out the moment before the moment- because as good as kissing feels, nothing feels as good as the anticipation of it.
    “I just want to do something that matters. Or be something that matters. I just want to matter.”
    He missed that, too, and it hadn’t even happened. He missed his imagined future. You can love someone so much, he thought. But you can never love people as much as you can miss them.
    “And the moral of the story is that you don’t remember what happened. What you remember becomes what happened.”
