It Ends With Us Adaptation (2024): Everything We Know About The Exciting New Project

With the book having sold over one million copies, the It Ends With Us adaptation might just be one of the most awaited projects for book and romance lovers. Colleen Hoover has taken over the book industry and soon we might just her projects take over the screen as well.
There has been some controversy regarding the content of the story, with some feeling like it romanticizes abuse, not helped by a planned accompanying coloring book leading to more scandal.

About The Book:

Lily hasn’t always had it easy, but that’s never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She’s come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up — she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life suddenly seems almost too good to be true.
Ryle is assertive, stubborn, maybe even a little arrogant. He’s also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily. And the way he looks in scrubs certainly doesn’t hurt. Lily can’t get him out of her head. But Ryle’s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing. Even as Lily finds herself becoming the exception to his “no dating” rule, she can’t help but wonder what made him that way in the first place.
As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan — her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened. // Amazon // Audiobook
