內容介紹

紐約時報暢銷書榜名作家-柯琳胡佛(Colleen Hoover)再創暢銷佳作。

超越羅曼史格局,以浪漫柔情包裝,挑戰家暴題材描寫。

「有時候最愛的人傷你最深…..

書中的男女主角乍看是前衛且可愛的。這些年來,莉莉的生活一路走來雖不致顛沛流離,但也歷經不少波折。儘管如此,也未曾消減她對於美好生活的憧憬從遙遠緬因的小鎮迢迢而來的她,大學畢業後搬到波士頓,經營著一家花店。男主角賴爾金凱德(Ryle Kincaid)是外科醫師,誓言永不結婚生子。賴爾不僅處事相當果決、執著還帶點狂妄,此外洞察人心、聰穎,卻對莉莉有種說不出的感覺。

兩人相遇在波士頓的某處屋頂。那是一場葬禮,賴爾失去了一位病人,而那位病人是家暴莉莉的父親。莉莉告訴自己,所有的恐懼從此結束。

賴爾的迷人風采深深讓莉莉著迷,看似遙遠的賴爾,竟為莉莉打破他的「不約會守則」。就當兩人的戀情愈加火熱之時,劇情於莉莉收到賴爾姊姊的警告急轉直下─賴爾具有暴力傾向。原來這一且沒有結束,賴爾不為人知的黑暗面,喚起莉莉對於父親家暴的陰霾和傷痕,此時莉莉才明白當時的母親為何斬不斷與父親的關係。她開始試圖為賴爾的各種徵兆辯護,希望安慰自己,那不會是真的。若莉莉真正愛著賴爾,她究竟該怎麼做?而這時初戀對象奧拉斯柯瑞根(Atlas Corrigan)的出現,對她而言又是另一個正確的出口嗎?奧拉斯是她的靈魂伴侶,而他的再次出現,使莉莉對賴爾建立起的情感產生動搖。

柯琳胡佛(Colleen Hoover)大膽描寫、細膩刻畫,向讀者訴說心兒抨然的感動、決離的掙扎。就如同柯琳胡佛一貫讓人揪心的才華,此書將又一次讓讀者跟著角色心情流轉,又笑又哭的直至最後一頁。

書評

 "Colleen Hoover reminds readers that love is a fragile thing, built from courage, hope, and tears. Every person with a heartbeat should read this book."  (Kami Garcia, #1 New York Times bestselling author)


"It Ends with Us isn't an ordinary love story. It will break your heart while filling you with hope,and by the end of this gripping, pulse-pounding novel, you'll be smiling through your tears." (Sarah Pekkanen, International bestselling author of Perfect Neighbors)

"It Ends With Us is a brave and heartbreaking novel that digs its claws into you and doesn't let go, long after you've finished it.  No one delivers an emotional read like Colleen Hoover."  (Anna Todd, New York Times bestselling author of the After series)

"What a glorious and touching read, a forever keeper. The kind of book that gets handed down." (USA Today)

It Ends with Us tackles [a] difficult subject…with romantic tenderness and emotional heft. The relationships are portrayed with compassion and honesty, and the author's note at the end that explains Hoover's personal connection to the subject matter is a must-read. Packed with riveting drama and painful truths, this book powerfully illustrates the devastation of abuse—and the strength of the survivors.” (Kirkus, STARRED REVIEW)
