1. November 9
Goodreads Rating: 4.28/5.0
This stomps the list for me; I don’t know about you. But, there is one thing I didn’t see in this book.
The book was a roller coaster of emotions, and I ensured I had a face towel to wipe my tears away. It’s a big 5 for me. I was invested in the character and loved Ben from the beginning.
Fallon meets Ben, an aspiring novelist, the day before her scheduled cross-country move. Their untimely attraction leads them to spend Fallon’s last day in L.A. together, and her eventful life becomes the creative inspiration Ben has always sought for his novel. Over time and amidst the various relationships and tribulations of their own separate lives, they continue to meet on the same date every year.
One day, Fallon becomes unsure if Ben has been telling her the truth or fabricating a perfect reality for the ultimate plot twist.
Can Ben’s relationship with Fallon and his novel be considered a love story if it ends in heartbreak?

Suppose you don’t mind a dark, twisted thriller book with romance. Then, you will love Verity by Collen Hoover.

Page after page of bone-chilling admissions, including Verity’s recollection of what happened the day her daughter died.

But as Lowen’s feelings for Jeremy intensify, she recognizes all the ways she could benefit if he were to read his wife’s words.

4. It Ends With Us #1
Goodreads Rating: 4.37/5.0
Sometimes it is the one who loves you who hurts you the most.
Lily hasn’t always had it easy, but that’s never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She’s come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up — she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life suddenly seems almost too good to be true.
Ryle is assertive, stubborn, and maybe even a little arrogant. He’s also sensitive, brilliant, and has a soft spot for Lily. And the way he looks in scrubs certainly doesn’t hurt. Lily can’t get him out of her head. But Ryle’s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing. Even as Lily becomes the exception to his “no dating” rule, she cannot help but wonder what made him that way in the first place.
As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan — her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened.
5. It Ends With Us #2
Goodreads Rating: 4.32/5.0
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 co-parenting rhythm when she suddenly bumps into her first love, Atlas. 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 proves that “no one delivers an emotional read like Colleen Hoover” (Anna Todd, New York Times bestselling author).
6. Ugly Love
Goodreads Rating: 4.21/5.0
When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love; she doesn’t have time for love so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless if Tate could stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.
Never ask about the past.
Don’t expect a future.
They think they can handle it but realize almost immediately they can’t take it.
Hearts get infiltrated.
Promises get broken.
Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly.
Goodreads Rating: 4.20/5.0
