About this deal

Domestic Abuse should be a topic frequently addressed and openly discussed due to the commonality of this too often unfortunate behavior. Most of the time it felt like it was describing the humdrum of a normal (somewhat boring) relationship, punctuated by realms of soppy love letters in the form of way-too-long journal entries - some of which were repeated from the first book. I feel bad for anyone who was looking forward to seeing Atlas’ perspective since he has about as much depth as a paper plate.

Let me start by saying this: there’s going to be a lot of hate for this book for the sole reason people just want to dislike this author for their popularity and there’s this hate train going on for the littlest things this author does so I already know people are going to just come out of the woodworks and find the tiniest thing to hate on this. I was more invested in Lily’s healing process and her story, I still felt that way going into this book. Maybe I’m the weird one, but if someone I “love like a brother” were to push their partner down the stairs and bite them so hard they bled, I simply wouldn’t love them like a brother anymore! 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.I understand I can change my preference through my account settings or unsubscribe directly from any marketing communications at any time.

Donnell makes Atlas’s unswerving devotion to Lily seem realistic and uses age-appropriate voices for Atlas’s half brother and his 11-year-old “therapist,” Theo. My face was this 😐 emoji the whole time, except when it came to Ryle, cause at least that guy gave me some emotions. And when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life seems too good to be true. I can't see any guy typing that much, especially in a text message, but Atlas is apparently not your average guy.

I know people are going to be mad at how often Ryle shows up here but that’s the reality of how abusive situations are, they don’t just die or leave you alone— colleen did a fantastic job at showing how realistic this situation is, at how much of a gaslighter he is. Narrators Colin Donnell and Olivia Song deliver Hoover’s highly anticipated second-chance-at-love sequel. Atlas' friend Theo convinces him to text Lily, but Atlas is disappointed by her rather curt response.
