Description

From #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Ends With Us, Colleen Hoover’s romantic, emotion-packed debut novel unforgettably captures all the magic and confusion of first love, as two young people forge an unlikely bond before discovering that fate has other plans for them.

Following the unexpected death of her father, eighteen-year-old Layken becomes the rock for both her mother and younger brother. She appears resilient and tenacious, but inside, she's losing hope. Then she meets her new neighbor Will, a handsome twenty-one-year-old whose mere presence leaves her flustered and whose passion for poetry slams thrills her.

Not long after a heart-stopping first date during which each recognizes something profound and familiar in the other, they are slammed to the core when a shocking discovery brings their new relationship to a sudden halt. Daily interactions become impossibly painful as they struggle to find a balance between the feelings that pull them together and the forces that tear them apart. Only through the poetry they share are they able to speak the truth that is in their hearts and imagine a future where love is cause for celebration, not regret.

    Such a great book, as all of Her books are. Let me in tears and I can’t wait to read the next one in the series.
  • I could have passed on this one.

    I’ve read several by Hoover and have enjoyed each and every one. Many of which I could not put down. However this one was a disappointment. The characters seemed a bit too immature for me and I had a difficult time getting past that. Didn’t grab me like her others.
  • Loved it!

    I love all of Colleen Hoover’s books. This one is probably my least favorite though. Seems like it doesn’t have a good “flow” to it. One minute Tate and will meet and then all of sudden they’re in love. I find Tate’s character kind of immature throughout the whole book.
  • Filled with love and depth

    After finishing this book, I couldn’t stop thinking about the impact it had on me. I loved so much of this book including the characters, plot, poetry, affection. From the beginning it engrossed me with ever page and made me feel joy, sadness, humor, and meaning. A great read and would highly recommend.
  • Amazing
