REVIEW – ALL YOUR PERFECTS by Colleen Hoover

SYNOPSIS

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Ends with Us—whose writing is “emotionally wrenching and utterly original” (Sarah Shepard, New York Times bestselling author of the Pretty Little Liars series)—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?

ALL YOUR PERFECTS is COHO’s latest and I found this one to be captivating. It is one unbearably angsty read but I loved every minute of it. This is why I’ve always considered Colleen Hoover to be one of the most truly gifted authors out there today. It’s been a while since I read a story about a married couple’s struggle to keep their love alive and this one was unbelievably gripping!! Even when things seemed completely hopeless for Graham and Quinn, I kept on praying that somehow they’d find their way back to the couple they once were.

Graham and Quinn Wells started off their romance in the most unconventional way but when their story unfolds you realize they were always meant to be. These two epitomize the definition of true soul mates. The story goes back and forth between past and present. We get to witness their love blossom and grow through the alternating chapters that take us to their past and then we feel the utter despair that consumes them both in the present due to their struggles with infertility. The couple who once couldn’t go a day without making love have now gone without intimacy for months. Quinn is just a shell of the woman she used to be because she feels broken for being unable to conceive children. She slowly starts to withdraw from Graham.

She thinks her subtle ways of avoidance are not noticeable to Graham but he knows his wife better than anyone. She’s the other half of his soul and he dies a little inside every day knowing he can’t ease her pain. While I understood Quinn’s devastation, I found her to be the most frustrating character. Graham was incredible! I loved him to the moon and back. He is definitely going on my list of top favorite characters created by Colleen Hoover. This man was beautiful inside and out. His love for his wife was unparalleled. I felt the couple’s heartache so deeply. I have to warn those of you who are afraid of angst that you might need a bottle of wine to get through this one but to avoid reading this book would be a travesty! This is COHO at her best!

Here are my overall ratings

Hero: 5++++++
Heroine: 4
Plot: 5++++
Angst: 5+++++
Steam: 4.5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5
