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 was browsing through NetGalley yesterday and came across this ARC to review. I thought to myself, “Is it going to be stupid to request it? What if I am not approved until after the release date since tomorrow is release day for Colleen Hoover?” I went ahead and requested to be chosen and just an hour or so later received the email from NetGalley saying I was approved! I instantly logged back in and sent the book to my Kindle email. The first thing I did was send a message to my sister in law, who got me hooked on Colleen Hoover books with the caption !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and a screen shot of the cover ON MY KINDLE! After fan-girling with her for just a little bit I dove into the book and am happy to report I finished it just a little bit ago. I
I absolutely did NOT want to put this book down. I read way past my bedtime last night until I absolutely could hold my eyes open anymore. The first thing I did this morning while I was waiting on my coffee to finish was grab my phone (since I currently do NOT have a kindle and read all my kindle books on my phone) and dive back in! Drove my son to Violin camp this morning and while waiting in line to drop him off was reading, since he was watching Fortnite videos on his phone and my daughter was asleep in her carseat.
I honestly have to say this is probably the most emotional book that I’ve read by Colleen Hoover so far. It’s followed closely by Ugly Love and It Ends with Us, but this one tops those 2 for me emotionally. The book was absolutely phenominal. Graham and Quinn’s love story started out in a way you wouldn’t really want to meet your future love. They met when they found out their significant others were cheating with each other. Fast forward a few months and they come in contact again and it’s all gravy from there.
7 years later it’s still apparent that they are still in love with one another, but things out of their control have made Quinn want something different for Graham, or so she thinks. When I first started the book, I wasn’t sure how I would feel about reading about the “now” in one chapter and the “then” in the next, but it wasn’t terrible.
There were many many ways I felt connected to Quinn. Feeling lost in a relationship is a hard pill to swallow, but it’s not unfixable either. I’d say about the last 40% of the book was the most emotional in my eyes. I was able to make it to the last chapter before the epilogue before I cried. This isn’t saying I didn’t want to cry before that, I just held myself together before that 🙂 I have always ALWAYS said that It Ends With Us is my favorite Colleen Hoover book. Well, Mrs Hoover, you have officially out done yourself in my eyes. All Your Perfects went to #1 on my favorite CoHo book!!
