WITHOUT MERIT

BY COLLEEN HOOVER

 Not every mistake deserves a consequence. Sometimes the only thing a mistake deserves is forgiveness.

The Voss family is anything but normal. They live in a repurposed church, newly baptized Dollar Voss. The once cancer-stricken mother lives in the basement, the father is married to the mother’s former nurse, the little half-brother isn’t allowed to do or eat anything fun, and the eldest siblings are irritatingly perfect. Then, there’s Merit.

Merit Voss collects trophies she hasn’t earned and secrets her family forces her to keep. While browsing the local antiques shop for her next trophy, she finds Sagan. His wit and unapologetic idealism disarm and spark renewed life into her—until she discovers that he’s completely unavailable. Merit retreats deeper into herself, watching her family from the sidelines, when she learns a secret that no trophy in the world can fix.

Fed up with the lies, Merit decides to shatter the happy family illusion that she’s never been a part of before leaving them behind for good. When her escape plan fails, Merit is forced to deal with the staggering consequences of telling the truth and losing the one boy she loves.

Poignant and powerful, WITHOUT MERIT explores the layers of lies that tie a family together and the power of love.

“So many people dream of living in a house with a white picket fence.   Little do they know, there’s no such thing as a perfect family, no matter how white the picket fence is.”

The house of Voss may have had a white picket fence, but inside you certainly aren’t going to find a perfect family.  In fact you are going to find the complete opposite.  You will find a house full of secrets harbored by one of the most diverse and unique families I’ve read about in a long time.  Merit is the main character here and is a girl who feels like she is holding everyone’s secrets.  Even the secret holder herself (as she feels) has a secret’s of her own, some she is very well aware of and some she isn’t.  She may be the main character here but all the others play just as big of a part in this story and my, what a story it is.  Merit, Honor, Utah, Sagan, Luck, Barnaby, both Victoria’s and even little Moby are about to take you on a journey and when it all unfolds you realize nothing is what you perceive it to be.

“Not every mistake deserves a consequence.  Sometimes the only thing a mistake deserves is forgiveness”   A lesson the entire Voss family will come to realize is the most important lesson of all.

This book was a true Colleen Hoover masterpiece.  She has proven again and again that she can write from one end of the spectrum to the other and kill it.   I went into Without Merit blind and this book was nothing like I was expecting, which was perfection from my past experiences…It was much more, SO much more!

synopsis

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, maybe even a little arrogant. He’s also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total 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 finds herself becoming the exception to his “no dating” rule, she can’t 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.

 With this bold and deeply personal novel, Colleen Hoover delivers a heart-wrenching story that breaks exciting new ground for her as a writer. Combining a captivating romance with a cast of all-too-human characters, It Ends With Us is an unforgettable tale of love that comes at the ultimate price.

Shera 5

You know that warm and oh so fuzzy feeling you get, when you pick up a book and before you are even through the first couple pages, you know you will not be putting it down until you finish? Yes, this is one of those books. I read straight through not stopping until i flipped the last page and even then I was still with the characters of the story. I literally can’t say enough good things about It Ends With Us. This was a 5++++ Star read. Easily one of my top favorites of the entire year so far!

It Ends with Us was gorgeous, profound, mesmerizing, raw, captivating and inspiring. Those words don’t even do this book justice. No words can put how I felt and am STILL feeling into perspective for you. I can’t remember the last time I read something that was that powerful. It’s one of those books that I will recommend every single friend of mine read and even if they aren’t my friend I am going to tell them about it. I felt this book deep down in my bones, my heart, my mind. I felt it EVERYWHERE because it consumed me. It’s a book that has taken residence deep down within me and I know without a doubt I will never ever forget it.

There is not a sliver of doubt that It Ends with Us is Colleen Hoover’s best work yet. I am pretty sure many will agree after reading about Lily, Ryle and Atlas. You will fall in love with these amazing characters, feel their pain, their laughter and love. I simply can’t wait for everyone to be to read this beautiful breathtaking book.

Reviewed by Shera

How do I even put into words what this book made me feel?  How do you capture just the right words to do this book justice?  JUST HOW CAN I EXPLAIN IT?  One. Word.  PHENOMENAL!

I was seriously convinced after reading Slammed that no way no how could Colleen Hoover ever top that book.  I fell face first into all things Will Cooper.  I could eat, sleep, BREATHE Will Cooper.  But no, she has managed to do the unthinkable…. (Are we really surprised? Nah)  she has managed to give us yet another *As if she hasn’t given us enough options already* Snorts* Unforgettable, Unputdownable, Undeniable character in this story.  I should say characters because both Ben and Fallon stole the show.

As soon as Ben sat down at that table in the diner with Fallon and her father he had me at the first flipping word.  Hell, he had me at the first thought, first glimpse, just had me at freaking HELLO!   I absolutely loved this book to pieces.  I loved the broken, the damage, the hurt, the heartbreak, the love.  Just ALL the feels.  THE FEELS!!

Just when you think, ok I got over that hurdle…. We just got the wham, bam, BOOM in your face shocker, oh no.  Be prepared to get back on that plot twist rollercoaster again.  The ride CoHo takes you on in this book is one you won’t soon forget.  This book is unpredictable in my opinion, angsty and filled with so much love, sprinkled with all-consuming feelings!  You will laugh, cry and your heart will physically hurt at times.  I won’t bother going into all the details of the book because, well what is the fun in that?  No one wants to read a review that spoils the entire plot and this is one where I am not giving one eensy-weensy of a detail because you need to experience this book first hand.  You need to fall in love with November 9 on November 10th.  You NEED to read this book!

If I could give this more than 5 Stars I would.  A million times over.  This is one that will stick with me like flippin super glue just as Will Cooper from Slammed has stuck with me all this time.  Congrats Colleen and thank you for giving us a beautiful, heartwrenching, epic story of life, loss, love and forgiveness wrapped up in one tidy bow.
