Colleen Hoover delivers a tour de force novel about a troubled marriage and the one old forgotten promise that might be able to save it.
Quinn and Graham’s perfect love is threatened by their imperfect marriage. The memories, mistakes, and secrets that they have built up over the years are now tearing them apart. The one thing that could save them might also be the very thing that pushes their marriage beyond the point of repair.
All Your Perfects is a profound novel about a damaged couple whose potential future hinges on promises made in the past. This is a heartbreaking page-turner that asks: Can a resounding love with a perfect beginning survive a lifetime between two imperfect people?
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review
My Rating: 5 Stars
When was the last time a book just stuck with you? I mean, really, really stuck with you? For MONTHS after finishing this book, I would find myself thinking about the characters. I’d be at a stoplight and would find my eyes watering because their story was just that beautiful.
My favorite thing about Colleen Hoover books is that the characters are real people. A lot of romance novels are meant to make you smile, but are not always realistic. And their is nothing wrong with that – I love those kinds of books. However, sometimes, I want to read about a real, gritty relationship. Colleen Hoover manages to deliver that in every single one of her novels, none more so than All Your Perfects.
Graham and Quinn have one of my favorite meetings of all time. Now, I don’t want to spoil the book, so I won’t go into too much detail about it, but it was both wonderful and sad. Their story is told in alternating chapters, one in the present and one in the past. The way that Hoover wrote it gives so much insight into their relationship without dragging at all.
Honestly, I could go on and on about this novel, it was, without a doubt, my favorite Colleen Hoover novel to date, and it may be one of my favorite reads this year. I grinned like a fool, I sobbed, and at the end of it, I am not ashamed to admit that I hugged the book to my chest.
My Takeaway: All Your Perfects was devastatingly wonderful, a look into a real relationship and the work that it takes to have a successful marriage. Definitely a must read romance of 2018.
