It’s remained on the bestselling lists in 2022 thanks to the many readers singing its praises on Tiktok and beyond.
It Ends With Us was the winner of the 2016 Goodreads Choice Awards for Best Romance and is one of Hoover’s most personal romance books, having based the story on the relationship between her mother and father.
It Ends With Us Movie Plot: What’s It About?
Since this is a film adaptation, we can assume that the 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.
