6. It Ends with Us

This is the story of Lily, who lives in Boston. After quitting her job, she starts her own business of selling flowers. So Lily meets Ryle, who is a handsome neurosurgeon. But he is wholly opposed to dating and love. Somehow, Lily turns out to be an exception to this rule. So as Lily and Ryle’s relationship starts developing, Lily’s first love at college turns up in her life.

When Lily was 15, she had helped Atlas as he had been homeless at that time, and they had fallen in love. His sudden reappearance in her life complicates her situation with Ryle. So, on the one hand, we get to know about Lily and Ryle’s story in the present. We get to know about Lily, and Atlas has passed through her diary entries that she had addressed to the popular TV show host Ellen DeGeneres.

The one thing that is very obvious right from the start is that Lily is a very likable character. She is so helpful, and you can’t help noticing it, and you love her right from the start. For me, this book was a total roller coaster of emotions as a romance novel, and it had all the elements of cute doctor romance. But on the other hand, it also dealt with a rather sensitive and triggering topic of domestic violence.
