It Starts With Us


Before It Ends with Us, it started with Atlas. Colleen Hoover tells fan favourite Atlas’s side of the story and shares what comes next in this long-anticipated sequel to the #1 Sunday Times bestseller It Ends with Us


by Coleen Hoover
  • In 2015, Colleen’s novel CONFESS won the Goodreads Choice Award for Best Romance.
  • Followed up in 2016 with her latest title, It Ends With Us, also winning the Choice Award for Best Romance.
  • In 2017, her title WITHOUT MERIT won best romance.
  • Her novel CONFESS has been filmed as a series by Awestruck and is available on Prime Video via Amazon and iTunes. Katie Leclerc and Ryan Cooper star in the series.

Lily and her ex-husband, Ryle, have just settled into a civil co-parenting rhythm when she suddenly bumps into her first love, Atlas, again. After nearly two years separated, she is elated that for once, time is on their side, and she immediately says yes when Atlas asks her on a date.

But her excitement is quickly hampered by the knowledge that, though they are no longer married, Ryle is still very much a part of her life—and Atlas Corrigan is the one man he will hate being in his ex-wife and daughter’s life.

Switching between the perspectives of Lily and Atlas, It Starts with Us picks up right where the epilogue for the bestselling phenomenon It Ends with Us left off. Revealing more about Atlas’s past and following Lily as she embraces a second chance at true love while navigating a jealous ex-husband, it proves that “no one delivers an emotional read like Colleen Hoover” (Anna Todd, bestselling author).


‘Through palpable tension balanced with glimmers of hope, Hoover beautifully captures the heartbreak and joy of starting over.’ Kirkus

‘It Starts With Us is a story of healing and growth…This journey is masterfully peppered with flashes of fear and anxiety prompted by Ryle’s behaviour, which is still as unpredictable as ever.’ Metro

It Starts With Us is a book that should be picked up if you have ever wondered about what comes next for Lily and Atlas on their journey. There are more than enough emotional and heartwarming scenes in this book to make it worth a read for all those It Ends With Us fans who were left wanting more.’ Culturefly
