This book is not typical of Colleen Hoover’s writing style—there are no sudden plot twists that leave you shocked and there is no betrayal that will leave you wounded. Rather, the story follows Lily and Atlas as they navigate a jealous ex-husband and embrace a second chance at true love. This story is about hope and growth, and the strength of love.
This romance novel is beautifully written, and it is easy to become immersed in the story. Colleen Hoover has created an amazing cast of characters, from Lily and Atlas to Alyssa, Ryle, and Marshall. Each character is unique and adds to the story in their own special way. Atlas is especially noteworthy, as he is a “Greek God Adonis” with no flaws. He is the perfect book boyfriend, and readers will swoon over every line he utters.
It Starts With Us is an incredibly uplifting story, and it is sure to stay in reader’s hearts. Colleen Hoover has written a beautiful novel that will inspire readers and encourage them to fight for love. This is a perfect read for anyone looking for a story of hope and growth.
