Description

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Starts with Us and It Ends with Us—whose writing is “emotionally wrenching and utterly original” (Sara Shepard, New York Times bestselling author of the Pretty Little Liars series)—delivers a tour de force novel about a troubled marriage and the one old forgotten promise that might be able to save it.

Quinn and Graham’s perfect love is threatened by their imperfect marriage. The memories, mistakes, and secrets that they have built up over the years are now tearing them apart. The one thing that could save them might also be the very thing that pushes their marriage beyond the point of repair.

All Your Perfects is a profound novel about a damaged couple whose potential future hinges on promises made in the past. This is a heartbreaking page-turner that asks: Can a resounding love with a perfect beginning survive a lifetime between two imperfect people?

    By great info love it
    I’ve read at least 6-8 of Colleen’s other books but this one feels like a chore to read. Not as exciting or interesting like the others….

    This book was hard to get through. The book bored me. It picked up toward the end but was still just okay.
  • The longest relationships take both people not giving up on each other at the same time

    Yet another book where CoHo had me crying like a baby at the end. I love how she started this book with a unique twist of how the characters met. She continues to build on that story through a series of back and forth “then” flashbacks detailing the history of their love story, to a “now” present-day storyline of how their relationship is falling apart. I love these characters together, but sometimes life circumstances can get in the way. As I read through the “now” stories, I found myself getting more upset with Quinn and felt she was self-sabotaging her relationship. Yes, she was going through something painful and yes, she was trying to make a decision that would make her husband happy, but she was jeopardizing that love. I think we can all say at times that we can get in our heads and think we are doing what’s right, when essentially it may be hurting our relationships. Truly honest communication between people, even lovers, is the hardest thing people can do. We hold back bc we don’t want to hurt others. We hold back bc we are hurting ourselves and aren’t in a place to verbalize. By the end of chapter 26, I was so mad at Quinn and wanted to throw the book across the room…how can you open the box when you know you feel the opposite way!?! With the box open, you discover Graham’s side of things. His letters had me in tears. But, you realize he too was doing the same, withholding his words/feelings, so he wouldn’t hurt his wife further. However, what he wasn’t able to verbalize in person, he was able to in written words. Words and feelings that should have been shared sooner, by both people, that would potentially have saved them heartache. The story does have a happy ending. There were three great reminders from this story that I walked away with… 1-Communication, honest and loving communication, is key. 2-Relationships are hard and imperfect, long-standing relationships take both people not giving up on each other at the same time. 3-Sometimes the storyline or ending you create or envision in your head for your relationship isn’t the only way to be happy together. Loved this book!
  • The epilogue!!

    I love everything Colleen Hoover. This book was a little slower for me, I was so desperate to find out what was happening “now”, that I found myself wanting to skip over the “then” sections. But the epilogue just made it all perfect! If you have read her earlier books you will love the tie in. I can’t believe I didn’t think of it earlier.
  • In my top 3 Colleen Hoover books

    I didn’t really expect to like this book after reading the summary, but I like Colleen’s writing so I gave it a shot. I was taken through such an array of emotions throughout the story - loved it!!
  • Another good one by CH

    Unlike some of her other books, this was a quick and easy read. Hard to put down (like all of her books) but less intricate than some of her others. A good dose of reality when it comes to what it’s like to struggle with infertility as a couple which I was happy to learn about. Also, a good look at loving someone else for who they are and what it can bring you through. Definitely suggest this one!

    Really love it but would liked it more if the “make up” wasn’t that easy. Maybe we could have more details about how things got fixed.
