From #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Starts with Us and 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.

    I typically give Colleen Hoover a 5 star review but her writing in this book was a little more spastic. Still a good read and I will finish the series. I can tell that this is one of her earlier books due to the way she writes here. I shed a tear or two and had my heartstrings pulled again.
  • Love it !

    I definitely cried at the end ! Such a good book!!!
  • Slow and not as good as her other books

    By itzhashley
    This one was the slowest of the 5 I’ve read so far. I almost gave up on it half way through, but then finally got pulled in. I finished it wishing there was more. I would recommend reading her other books over this one.
  • Awesome
