What is It Starts with Us by Colleen Hoover Novel All About?

Colleen Hoover wrote this book as the second part of her best-selling romance novel It Ends With Us. The former book revolves around a self-made girl Lily Bloom who falls for a neurosurgeon, Ryle, who seems to be a perfectionist. Meanwhile, she has a place in her heart for her first love, Atlas. The story goes through a lot of ups and downs and ends with Lily being pregnant with now-her-ex-husband Ryle.

In It Starts With Us, Lily and Ryle have just settled into a co-parenting rhythm when she bumps into her first love, Atlas. Although Lily is broken, her heart skipped a beat when she suddenly saw him and agreed to a date when she was asked by Atlas.

She is also threatened by the fact that her ex-husband won’t like her being close to Atlas. Although they are not together, but he is still very much a part of her life. This book switches the perspectives of Lily and Atlas to narrate the romance and thrill.
