Get ready Colleen Hoover fans because the It Ends With Us movie is happening and I’ve got all the details to share.
The It Ends With Us movie is based on Colleen Hoover’s bestselling romance book, It Ends With Us, which is book one in the It Ends With Us series.
As I wrote in my review of It Ends With Us, it is one of Hoover’s most personal romance books, having based the story on the relationship between her mother and father.
Of all the Colleen Hoover books, It Ends With Us is arguably the most popular. In 2016, it won the Goodreads Choice Award for Best Romance and is still widely considered one of the best Colleen Hoover books.
Since it was the bestselling book of 2022, I anticipate that the It Ends With Us movie is going to be a massive hit.

It Ends With Us Movie Plot: What’s It About?
Since this is a film adaptation, we can assume that the It Ends with Us movie will follow the main points of the written story though we can’t disregard that there may be some changes to the film.
It Ends With Us follows the main character, Lily, who after growing up in Maine, going to college, and starting her own business, finds herself thinking that her life is too good to be true.
Now living in Boston, Lily meets gorgeous neurosurgeon, Ryle Kincaid. Ryle develops a soft spot for Lily, but has a complete aversion to relationships.
But while Lily’s relationship with Ryle unfolds, she can’t stop thinking about Atlas Corrigan, her first love.
Atlas was her kindred spirit, her protector, and when he suddenly reappears in her life, everything Lily has built with Ryle is questioned.
