ALL YOUR PERFECTS by Colleen Hoover
Published; July 17th 2018, Atria Books
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 almost could have written this review without even reading the book. Colleen Hoover is my favourite author and can do absolutely no wrong with whatever she releases.
The thing that surprises me with Colleen is that her books are never the same. I mean of course there is always a love story, who am I kidding – not just any love story but the most EPIC love story ever written with quotes that send shivers down your spine and goosebumps on your arms, but the story behind the love story is always based around something different.
All Your Perfects is just another example of this. Based around fertility it tells the story of Quinn and Graham, of how they met and how their relationship is now struggling as Quinn tries to deal with not being able to have the one thing she wants more than anything.
I don’t know how much research Colleen needs to do before she writes a story but she always seems to know so much about her subject which really adds to the emotional aspect of the book. In fact this had me in tears which never never happens with a book. It was written so well that I felt Quinn’s heartbreak even though it’s nothing something that has personally affected me.
Graham is of course the most adorable of book boyfriends. His unfaltering love for Quinn, even when he does something so hurtful, is the most amazing kind of love. The way he is determined to fight for what is left of their relationship is heart warming.
I love how it is told from both the present day and also from the year they met. It really added an element understanding how they fell in love and how their relationship grew to how they are now. It explains why Graham insists on fighting the way he does.
As with all of Colleen’s books I flew through this one, just found myself desperate to know what was going to happen. It is of course well written and some of the quotes are just amazing. It’s one of those books that stays with you long after you have finished.
I love Colleen and I am already excited to see what she does next because I just know it is going to be awesome!
