Before It Ends with Us, it started with Atlas. Colleen Hoover tells fan favorite Atlas’s side of the story and shares what comes next in this long-anticipated sequel to the “glorious and touching” (USA TODAY) #1 New York Times bestseller It Ends with Us.

Lily and her ex-husband, Ryle, have just settled into a civil coparenting 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 “gripping, pulse-pounding” (Sarah Pekkanen, author of Perfect Neighbors) 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, New York Times bestselling author).

  • Got very bored 🥱

    By Yordania cabrera
    It’s obvious that write lost the creativity, very repetitive the story and unfortunately I didn’t finish because I was bored, nothing like the first one. TRUST ME

    This is exactly what i needed to follow up with “ it ends with us “ but i still want more of Lily and Atlas - Emerson and Josh. It’s just too good of a story to only be two books. Colleen writes amazing stories and i’m always so hooked. it was so hard to put this book down and not sit around thinking about what’s to come. i love how all these pieces fell together
