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.

If my rating scale went up to 10+ stars, that is what I would have given this novel by Colleen Hoover. I went into reading this book with no expectations and really no idea of the emotional trainwreck that was about to hit me. Now I’ll be honest, I miss the days when Colleen’s books were a bit less expensive, $7.99 is pushing my book price boundaries, but it was Colleen so I made an exception. After reading it, I’d have gladly paid more. I read this the day it was published and have had to take a few days to settle before even writing this much.

I cannot say much without giving the story away and I’d never do this because I would want anyone that reads this book to have no preconceived notions about how the story will unfold. Let’s just say that I could connect to Lily in every way and have lived in her shoes both as a child and as an adult. I will admit that I ugly cried my way through this book, so fair warning – DO NOT READ THIS BOOK IN PUBLIC. When I say ugly cry I’m not talking you will shed a few polite tears at the plight of the characters, I’m talking streams of tears, snot, and a splotchy red face. You have been warned.

So if you want to read what I will call one of the BEST books of 2016 – click the links and buy the book.
