It Starts With Us: A Kayla Hicks Book Review

2 min read

It Starts With Us is the perfect follow-up to the wonderful book, It Ends with Us.

What is it about?

Lily and her ex-husband, Ryle, have just settled into a civil co-parenting 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).

My review:

I have read every Colleen Hoover book, and not one has yet to disappoint me, including It Starts With Us.

Hoover does a wonderful job continuing right where the first book left off. I really enjoyed seeing the different viewpoints of Atlas and Lily as they navigated their own turmoils and trying to be together. It was also rewarding as the reader to finally see these two find each other again despite their circumstances.

Hoover pulled me in again, making me speed through this book in just two days.

I would definitely recommend this series to a friend and I give this 5 stars.
