Wow... How does Colleen Hoover do it yall? Time after time she writes these ridiculously emotional novels that wreak havoc on my poor little heart, and All Your Perfects was no exception to that statement. This novel is a little darker than others that I've read from her, but it is so important and relevant to what so many people are struggling with in the world today. I don't want to give too much away and spoil it for you, so I won't dig too deeply.

I love the fact that Hoover has the ability to tackle heavy topics with such elegance and grace. There were many times where my heart was hurting so badly for the characters, but Hoover's beautiful writing quickly turned my sadness into joy. The characters were complex and realistic and I felt myself truly connecting to them and their heartache... so much so that I may have cried in public while reading this novel. Oops!

All Your Perfects is a beautifully written novel about heartache, love, second chances, and accepting the the life that you are given. It was perfectly addicting and heartbreaking. Colleen Hoover has done it again! I would highly recommend this novel to readers who love contemporary fiction or other works from Colleen Hoover. Thank you to Atria books and NetGalley for sending this novel in exchange for an honest review.

Rating 5/5

2.5/5 While the main subject matter was both interesting and one I could personally relate to, I was more frustrated and tired of the characters than empathetic, and I believe the writing structure had a lot to do with that. This is not the first time this author has used this past/present method, but I do feel that it was not as successful as her previous works like Ugly Love and It Ends With Us. Initially, the chapter blocks of "then" and "now" differentiated themselves enough to keep me intrigued, but I will say the switching back and forth from the emotional lows and highs of each timeline could be jarring at first and interrupted the flow of the story. However, somewhere around the 50% mark, that differentiation became muddled, lost in a cycle of rinse and repeat. The subtle twists weren't enough to keep me from skimming sections, and the emotional pull became all but absent for me. Unfortunately, I have had a similar experience with her recent works. Perhaps Hoover's writing style has changed or my reading preferences have, but the need to gobble up her words and my awe at her craft is something I miss and hope to experience again.

Thank you Atria Books #Partner for the free book. All opinions are my own.

I rate this book a 5 out of 5 Stars!

Whenever I pick up a CoHo book, I know that my heart is going to be broken. This book was no different. I felt like my heart was on the brink of breaking the entire time I read this one. It starts with a very tragic event, and then continues to just punch you in the heart throughout the book. I found myself fighting for Quinn and Graham, and begging Hoover to leave them alone. 

This was beautifully written, and very realistic, what Quinn and Graham go through you see in marriages everywhere. My own marriage had hit a Category 3 storm (book reference) yesterday while I was finishing this. While I loved this book, It Ends With Us is still my all-time favorite. But these are two very different books, and they are each perfect in their own way.

Colleen Hoover is a master writer, she knows where to hurt you, when to pull at your heart-strings, and when to make you feel warm and fuzzy. Her books are a tidal wave of emotions, and worth every damn one. Also, she is the most quotable author I have ever came across.

All Your Perfects captivated me from page 1! I sooo love when that happens.

This book is such a sad, but great, depiction of what real life is. Life is hard. Marriage is hard. You’re going to have ups and downs in your relationship. And you’re going to have struggles that you have to either work your ass off through or decide it’s not worth it. Either way it’s hard. These two characters are struggling with the fact that they will likely never have kids. They are struggling with infertility, in which no interventions seem to work, and adoption is not an option for them. They both really want kids. This is a very difficult thing to deal with and it’s really taking its toll on their relationship.

While I loved reading this book and didn’t want to put it down, at the same time I felt like I needed to take a break between chapters because it alternates between then and now. Deliriously happy, humorous, falling in love…to heartbreak, intensity, unhappiness. I kind of needed to take a short break between chapters just because switching gears like that just didn’t settle well with me. The break helped and then I would be ready to take on the next chapter. That just proves how invested I was in this story and the characters.

The following quote gives me all kinds of feels. Every marriage goes through rough times and I just love this metaphor so much.

"I think about that sometimes. About what could make one couple survive a Category 5 moment, but a different couple might not. I’ve thought about it enough to come up with a possible reason.

Hurricanes aren’t a threat to coastal towns. There are more days with great weather and perfect beach days than there are hurricanes.

Marriages are similar, in that there are a lot of great days with no arguments, when both people are filled with so much love for each other.

But then you have the threatening-weather days. There might only be a few a year, but they can do enough damage that it takes years to repair. Some of the coastal towns will be prepared for the bad-weather days. They’ll save their best resources and most of their energy so that they’ll be stocked up and prepared for the aftermath.

But some towns won’t be as prepared. They’ll put all their resources into the good weather days in hopes that the severe weather will never come and the choice with greater consequences.

I think that’s the difference in the marriages that survive and the marriages that don’t. Some people think the focus in a marriage should be put on all the perfect days. They love as much and as hard as they can when everything is going right. But if a person gives all of themselves in the good times, hoping the bad times never come, there may not be enough resources or energy left to withstand those Category 5 moments."

This book. My God, this book. It really resonated with me. My husband and I have been through some rocky times in the last couple years, in a bit of an opposite way of the couple in this book. We changed after having our daughter and really struggled with becoming parents (Quinn would be so frustrated with me for admitting that). I was able to relate to so many things in this book. It really just struck me right in the heartstrings.

Everything about this book is done well: the characters, the story, the writing, the captivity, the romance…there’s nothing to complain about.

I do think that anyone would enjoy this book. You don’t have to have experienced struggles in your marriage to relate to this book. It’s just real life. It’s so real and raw and just so worth reading. I loved it and devoured it. I can’t wait to read more Colleen Hoover books. I’ve been meaning to since reading Hopeless and Losing Hope years ago and I’m so glad I finally read another. Definitely a favourite author.

You know how you get books that you are a little worried to start as they have that feeling that they could be angsty and a bit too much emotion that you can handle at the moment. That's what Colleen Hoover's latest book was like for me. Unlike her previous books where the characters are younger, this one the characters I imagined were late 20's to mid 30's. Quinn and Graham met on what could be the worst day of both of their lives. They met each other the day they found out that their partners were cheating on them with each other's partners. They managed to click on that day, and Graham gave Quinn his number and told her to give him a call after her rebound date. A few months later, the pair runs into each other and pick up from there. Months later, wedding bells ring, and the couple ends up married. The book then jumps into the future, and the pair's marriage is rocky at best. They have their up's, but lately, it has been a lot of downs. Their imperfections have become their worst enemies as Quinn can't get pregnant and is continually blaming herself so much that she is pulling away from Graham and then Graham on a lapse receives affection from elsewhere. In the couple's wardrobe is a wooden box which we learn that they are to open it when all hope has gone, and they are on the brink of the evil D - word. The characters have lots of moments to open the box, but love prevails until one night - things blow up and it's too much, and the box is cracked open. What will be in the wooden box and will it be enough for Quinn and Graham to salvage their relationship or will their imperfections and flaws be too much for them to continue with one another? I loved the idea of the wooden box, and it made me wonder whether I should broach the idea with my partner, except he's very logical and might not understand.
I have to admit; overall this book was not as emotional and angsty as I had thought at the beginning before starting the book.

All Your Perfects is the story of a troubled marriage and the one promise that might be able to save it. Quinn and Graham meet under horrid circumstances. They find themselves in the hallway outside her fiancee's apartment in which her fiancee is in the act of cheating with Graham's girlfriend. As they wait for the cheaters to emerge, they commiserate over the Chinese food her fiancee ordered. It's the same order he normally places for Quinn. The fortune contained in the cookie? "If you only shine light on your flaws, all your perfects will dim."

Months later, Quinn finally gives in to her feelings and embarks upon a relationship with Graham. It is clear that they are meant to be together, But their struggle with infertility threatens the beautiful union they have formed.

Author Colleen Hoover approaches the subject with compassion and unflinching insight. As Quinn and Graham's struggle continues, they become increasingly isolated and estranged from each other. Although the story is told from Quinn's perspective, Hoover also credibly conveys the disappointment and frustration Graham experiences. The result is a heartbreaking story of two people who are so entrenched in their own sorrow that they are unable to reach to the one person in the world who can best understand their feelings -- and lend unconditional support and comfort. It is not until their situation reaches a breaking point that they turn to the promise they made each other at the beginning of their marriage. Because within that promise lies the answer to the question they can no longer evade: Can their marriage survive? In order to remain together, they will have to accept disappointment, forgive each other, and accept that their future will be very different from the way they originally envisioned it.

Hoover's ability to convey her deeply flawed characters' emotional struggles and evoke empathy for them is simply mesmerizing in its depth and straight-forward honesty. Sans plot contrivances, Hoover pulls readers into the painful journey of Quinn and Graham, realistically depicting her characters' individual descents into despair and inspiring readers to ponder their own reactions when life delivers disappointment. Hoover delivers a believable resolution to her tale that readers will find deeply satisfying. All Your Perfects is a nearly perfect story.

Thanks to NetGalley for an Advance Reader's Copy of the book.

I finally finished it! I say that because I started this book when it released and I just now finished it. I was getting worried because this is the longest it has ever taken me to read a Colleen Hoover book. For 3/4 of this book I felt nothing but angst and annoyance at the back and forth (then and now) that I couldn’t appreciate the foundation of the story being told. Quinn absolutely annoyed me with her negative thoughts about not being able to conceive a child, mostly because it reminded me of myself when I was deeply depressed and unhappy with the way my life was going. I got so tired of myself that I made the decision to change and start focusing on the positives more than the negatives. It would take several years later (i.e. last year) for me to realize, that when I made that decision, I turned off my emotions and wouldn’t allow myself to feel pain/broken, which is sometimes necessary. Some may see this as a good thing, but as we discover with Quinn, it doesn’t help when you try to hide your emotions or hold them in. As annoyed as I was that she couldn’t snap out of it, I realized this is what happens with many of us who don’t talk about our problems or failures. We’re so focused on being perfect or projecting a perfect life to others that we hide and try to bury the shame of our inabilities to achieve our goals. So, for the remainder of the book I cried. Cried because I again recognized myself. Cried because I remember the many times my husband and I went through some Category 5 storms and vowed “we were in it to win it” only to reach that Category 6 we never saw coming. And I’m crying now as I write this review because just 2 days ago, we celebrated the end of that Category 6 storm and can now move on TOGETHER to face the next storm Mother Nature throws our way. So I apologize Quinn, for thinking you were annoying and weak for not seeing the good in your life. I’m sorry Colleen, for having my doubts that you no longer had that gift for writing about life that I fell in love with 5+ years ago. You obviously do because I’m sitting here, feeling all the emotions, crying all the tears and writing the longest book review I’ve ever written (with no regard for punctuation or structure or whatever is required when writing a book review). THANK YOU!

"When you meet someone who is good for you, they won't fill you with insecurities by focusing on your flaws. They'll fill you with inspiration, because they'll focus on all the best parts of you."

I'm going to take a moment here to state upfront how raw this review will be, because this book focused on a subject that has made my heart both hard and tender over the years- infertility. I put off reading this book until the last second before a review was needed (I'm so sorry if I made you nervous Ariele!) because I was unsure of how it would affect me. Would it put me in a funky reading slump? The short answer is no, it didn't, and I'm 100% glad I took a chance on reading All Your Perfects, because I have never consumed a novel that felt so intimately crafted toward myself as a reader before.

"If you only shine light on your flaws, all your perfects will dim."

My intent is not to make this review all about me, but about the book, so if you want to discuss anything regarding mine and my family's personal journey (or need someone to talk to about your own), please feel free to send me a private message and I would be glad to do so. Regarding the format of the novel, I was grateful that Hoover chose to have the story unfold via alternating past and present tenses; we learn from the past how Quinn and Graham met and came to the point they are in present time, while also getting an inside glimpse into their current fragile situation. The present day tense, while excellent and beyond well done, was extremely emotional to read, and just as I would get to the place where I felt like I couldn't breathe, Colleen would switch gears to a happier time and I eased into a more comfortable state. Guys, I can't express enough how unique of a reading experience this created. For those readers who have been through a similar journey, or may be going through it now, this story is crafted in such a way that it is sensitive to those hurting while acknowledging that pain and giving it the validation and understanding it deserves.

I don't want to give anything away, so I won't go into plot specifics, but it goes way below surface level and discusses a myriad of issues and concerns that people deal with on the journey through infertility (or just fertility issues in general). All the insensitive comments of well meaning people, the guilty internal struggle when everyone around you is having babies, the expense that comes along with pricey fertility treatments that may or may not work, and the mental health decline as you pull out of yourself and get lost in a downward spiral of depression and self-deprecation is all touched on. Before you shake your angray fist and scream "But what about adoption!", don't worry, that's discussed as well. I found myself crying throughout almost the entire book, but especially during those moments that felt carved from my very being and placed into Quinn and Graham's narrative. I remember those nights when Mr. Humphrey (bless him, he really is the best) would hold me close and tell me that I was enough and that he wouldn't give up on us. That moment in the story where the old man tells Quinn that the secret to a long happy marriage is for both spouses to never give up at the same time is SO true, and it broke me to read that after living it.

I'm grasping at straws here, because I don't know what to say to convince you to read this book. Did I say enough? Did I mention all the right things? It could be that this book was so special to me because it was personal on many levels, so maybe it won't speak to you in the same way that it did me, but I have a feeling that All Your Perfects will give many readers a similarly satisfying experience as I had. The sign of an excellent read is when it challenges you while draining you physically and emotionally, and I haven't quite felt this way since I read It Ends With Us back in the day. Maybe one day I'll get the chance to meet CoHo in person and let her know just how grateful I am that she put pen to paper and brought the shame associated with infertility out of the darkness and is taking a stand against removing the stigma associated with it. If you are hurting and you feel it isn't the right time to pick this one up, trust me, I get it. However, if you do choose to read it, I'll be right here and offer a virtual shoulder to cry on if and when you need it. <3

All Your Perfects is a raw, potent tale of the trials of love and marriage that will break you down into a sobbing mass of emotions before rewarding you with a ray of hope that is bittersweet. It's a story that will stick with you long after turning that final page...

Quinn and Graham didn't have the most conventional of meetings, but it is apparent from the start that they are meant to be. After seven years of marriage though, they've grown and changed in ways that they never expected, and may not be able to find their way back from. Despite their struggles and disconnect over the last few years they still share an everlasting love. But is love enough?

"…it’s hard to admit that a marriage might be over when the love is still there."

All Your Perfects is a story that resonated within me and held me captive from beginning to end. Being a married woman of 14 years, I don't read romances that feature married couples for a variety of reasons, but the main one being that I live it. Why would I want to read about it when sometimes that fictional escape is (honest moment here) much needed? However, since I am a fan of Colleen Hoover's works already, I decided to give this book a try. Despite knowing going into it, the author's predilection for the gut-wrenching. And I am so glad that I did...

“What's the secret to a perfect marriage?' The old man leaned forward and looked at me very seriously. 'Our marriage hasn't been perfect. No marriage is perfect. There were times when she gave up on us. There were even more times when I gave up on us. The secret to our longevity is that we never gave up at the same time.”

Though our situations are slightly different, there were so many instances that I could personally relate to instances between Quinn and Graham. I even discussed the book with my husband while preparing dinner one night, which I don't often do. Complex, unforgettable, and heartbreaking; the story kept me turning the pages well into the wee hours of the morning making for a couldn't-put-down, all-night-read. The tale is narrated in 1st person POV by Quinn, vacillating between past and present. I have so much love for the couple, Quinn and Graham, their journey from THEN to NOW pulled at my heartstrings. Sometimes this type of transition confuses the plot, and other times it helps to complete a picture. All Your Perfects is the latter. You fall in love with this couple as they fall in love with each other, and you learn what has put them in such a fragile state. You'll end up both anticipating and dreading the eventual revelation of "the box". Knowing it was the start, and could potentially be the end. There were moments that I cried silently while reading in bed, moments that I wanted to reach into the pages and shake a character while shouting, "Why?!". Other moments that my heart would soar while in the next it would plummet. The sphere of emotions that I was put through while reading cannot be put into words, and I wouldn't change a moment of it.

“If you only shine light on your flaws, all your perfects will dim.”

If I had to sum up this book in one word, it would be - Inspirational. As with the stirring quote above, and with anything in life, if you only focus on the negative - the flaws - that is all you will eventually end up seeing. Unfortunately, like many of us in real life, our characters found themselves at a time living in a world of flaws. I love how real, and gritty, and dynamic the story was. How it highlighted the tough topics with not a hint of gloss. Compelling from beginning to end, Hoover penned a fabulous story with a richly written, character driven, and highly emotional plot. All Your Perfects hit every check-mark in my list for a perfect romance - a perfect story period. Generally only truly understood while living it, the author perfectly captures the trial and tribulations of marriage, breaking it down so entirely that I think this book should be recommended during premarital counseling. I honestly can't say enough about this book so I hope you'll take my word on it when I say that you must read it.

*I received a copy of this book via the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

This book is heartbreaking, but it's perfect. (The title is just right!)

Graham and Quinn meet during one of the worst points of each of their lives. Their connection is immediate, but they part ways soon after meeting. When they reconnect months later, each is in a different place in life. The connection is still there, but dare I say it was even ... stronger? More palpable? It just jumped right off the page.

It's not often that I pick up a book and literally can't put the thing down until it's done. That's what happened with this book. I read the book in a day. Actually, it was more like in 10 hours. I fell in love with the characters, pulled straight into the plot, and was immersed in all of it.

My heart ached for Quinn. I don't want to spoil this review, so I'm not going to detail her struggles, but I will say that I personally can't identify with her, but that didn't make her story any less painful for me to read. I felt her pain as I was reading. I wanted to trade places with her and take all the sadness away because she was so devastated.

Graham is incredible. He's handsome, but he's a total nerd, and I loved that about him. His personality is perfection. Hoover nailed it when she created his character. He's romantic, loyal, silly, and so devoted to Quinn it isn't even fully. When things are falling apart around him he continues to fight, because his love for her is everything. He got a spot on my list of Top Book Boyfriends of 2018.

I've only read a few books that have left me feeling like a changed person, and All Your Perfects is one of them. Colleen has done it yet again, giving readers a story that's poetic yet heartbreaking, beautiful yet broken, and that will leave them longing for more from her.

Five stars to this book!

This dissection of a marriage is as real as it gets. The story of Graham and Quinn is unusual in the unconventional way in which they meet. But, not so in the drama that unfolds. The heartbreaking, traumatic events that they face actually plague many couples, which makes the book quite relateable and will take your emotions through the wringer. Told in past and present chapters, we get the happy years before the thing that eventually tears them apart, followed by Graham taking the reins to fix and restore the marriage. And, it's no easy road. I adored Graham and think he went to the depths of his soul to reach Quinn and win her back. Almost inexhaustible. By contrast, it may not seem fair what she's been through, but I felt Quinn's selfishness and lack of compassion for Graham as a partner before she finally sees the light. For the longest time, she wasn't meeting him halfway and he was covering the distance when there was no one there to pick up his shattered pieces. Actually, I blamed her more for the marriage dissolving because of her inauthentic behavior toward him and lack of communication, despite her right to the grief she held.

Theirs is a beautiful but intense story, and again Graham is what makes it so illuminating and deep for me. The story's message is "IF YOU ONLY SHINE A LIGHT ON YOUR FLAWS, ALL YOUR PERFECTS WILL DIM." He's the glue that fixes this marriage IMO and drags her from the depths of despair. I love his line:

"I promise that I will love you more during the storms than I will love you during the perfect days".

If that isn't a man who loves you and stands by you completely, I don't know what is.

And the one that chokes me up every time he says it her -- which is every morning they awaken:

"What did I miss while you were asleep? Did you dream?"

That, my friends, is a man so in love that he's afraid he'll miss something important while his love sleeps. Sigh.

While not my favorite book by the author, I felt this sensitive story in my marrow. It feels so real and moving that everything doesn't wrap up perfectly, but in a perfect way for this couple when all is said and done. Fate doesn't always give us the life we wish, but it can come pretty close if we realize what matters most.

My thanks to Netgalley, Simon and Schuster Canada, Atria Books, and Colleen Hoover for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and independent of receiving an advanced copy.

So I was not the biggest Colleen Hoover fan. I did not enjoy “It Ends With Us” (please feel free to check out my review) even though it received a high rating. Most people I had talked to were huge fans of Hoover’s writing. I recently had a discussion with my sister-in-law about Hoover and she, also a big fan, said oh check out “it Ends With Us’ and you will change your mind! I had to tell her that I gave it 2 stars. So I wasn’t holding out much hope for “All You Perfects”. I kept an open mind because I hadn’t read enough of her books to really decide if I like her writing style or not. So glad I did.

“All You Perfects” is about a couple and their marriage. It alternates chapters between the past and the present so you can understand where they started and how they got to the point where they felt like they were breaking. Quinn and Graham meet in a hallway, in front of an apartment where their significant others are having an affair. Imagine coming home after a trip, excited to see your fiancé, finding this guy outside the apartment, telling you his girlfriend is inside screwing your fiancé. Do you open the door? Eventually. Do you eat their Chinese food they got delivered - definitely! Do you have revenge sex with the hot guy who was also a victim? They don’t, surprisingly. But a bond was formed, an extra spark was lit and they do the right thing and wait because what if they could have something special - blah blah blah.

They do get together and they are insanely attracted to each other. Their love is true until they start having infertility issues. Years of wanting a baby and not being able to conceive wears away at their relationship. It begins by not wanting to talk about it because you don’t want to hurt the other person and ends up that you just don’t talk. You have grown so far apart from each other you don’t know if there is any way forward, or any way back to the other person.

This novel was a slow burn for me. You get to fall in love with Quinn and Graham while they fall in love with each other. Every marriage has issues and distance is often a result so I found their issues universal rather than situational. It was a 3 star, marching along, I though oh good beach read, nice chick lit, but nothing grabbed me. UNTIL. THE. LETTERS. I don’t want to go into too much detail because I don’t want to reveal any spoilers but it was a game changer for me. I was enjoying it much more than “It Ends With Us” but once it hit that spot, I just was moved. My heart melted and I might have cried a little, well okay I cried. I wasn’t expecting it to have the depth and heartfelt-ness that it did based on the first part of the book. Up to that point, the writing was good, the characters were well drawn but the writing during those letters changed everything for me. It went up to 4 stars for sure for me. I loved the resolution and the ending. It was real.

A beautiful story that illustrates a real marriage, the love and the challenges, what it takes to stay in it and whether it is time to walk away. It reminds you that so much of life is in your hands and how you choose to look at things can shape your reality. Reframing things can be powerful if you choose to be grateful for the blessings you have instead of focusing on what you don’t. Also, making assumptions about other people’s feelings is a dangerous road and usually leads to the wrong conclusion. Especially when you are in a negative space. It felt real and although it is their story, it could be anyone’s story.

Colleen Hoover never fails to astound me. The skill in which she makes a fictional story, all the highs and lows of a relationship, seem so real, blows me away. All Your Perfects was real, raw, and an all-consuming read for me. Colleen takes what should be an idyllic marriage and slowly picks it all apart in front of the reader, making you feel the pain and devastation, the sheer want and the soul-deep love until you’re left with little more than an ache in your chest and a tear in your eye.

I was not expecting this book to affect me in the way that it did. I was of course anticipating an emotional read, but I was not prepared to be so SAD for this couple. This was such a true-to-life story. Watching this couple struggle, taking this journey with them, feeling how deeply in love they are, yet so broken at the same time, was hard. Anyone in a committed relationship could easily put themselves into Graham & Quinn’s shoes, realizing how their problems could so easily be their own.

This story reached a part of me that few ever do. It opened my eyes to how delicate love is, how we need to nurture our relationships and remain open and receiving to our partners, even when we don’t like what might result from that.
As with any Colleen Hoover book, I was emotionally wrung out after reading All Your Perfects, my heart full while at the same time aching. There are so many facets to this story to reveal and understand, and I look forward to re-reading this story very soon (much more slowly, this time!) just so I can more acutely feel everything that Colleen was trying to convey in this story.

In my eyes, All Your Perfects was much like a successful marriage…the painful parts hurt like no other, but the end result is so, so worth it.

Oh. My. God.

This book was exactly what I needed, exactly what I didn’t know that I needed.

So when I begun reading this I instantly fell in love with Graham and Quinn. They both met each other under horrible circumstances, they both hurt the same, they both were betrayed. Watching them use each other to get through that point in their life was lovely to see even if it went no further than that night.

Quinn was incredible, seriously incredible. The pain and suffering she goes through is absolutely heartbreaking, something I wouldn’t wish on anyone. Just reading what she was going through broke my damn heart. I felt like my heart had been ripped out of my chest, stamped on a few times, run over by a bus and then shoved back into my chest. The topic this book is wrote around is something many women go through, things a woman shouldn’t have to go through. All Your Perfects is the first book I’ve read that covered this topic entirely. The heartbreak, the tears, the sadness, the depression and shutting down. Quinn experiences it all and you feel everything she does.

Graham, oh Graham. He’s I don’t even know the word to describe him best. He’s the kind of man that you wish you could have. He’s loving, supportive and will do absolutely anything for his woman. The topic in this book is often all about the woman but never covers the mans side, they don’t mention how the man is breaking, how he’s devastated or how much he hurts but Colleen Hoover does. She shows Graham’s pain in this book and that’s the hardest part of reading this. My heart completely broke for him because not only was he going through the same thing she was, he was alone in his grief. He isn’t afraid to show his pain but always puts his woman first instead of himself. He’s a breath of fresh air is Graham and I think he’s my new favourite CoHo male.

I’m absolutely in awe of this book. Colleen Hoover never fails to amaze me with her books. When I seen she was writing a new book I knew I had to get, I knew I was going to love it and I just couldn’t wait for it. Now that I’ve got it and read it I just want to rewind so I can read it all over again.

I smiled at their adorable ness and love they have, I laughed at their banter and I cried for their heartbreak. This book was full of emotions. It was like getting on a rollercoaster and not being able to get off and it constantly smacking you with all the feels.

I got to a certain chapter at the end and had to stop reading, I actually sobbed which in turn had my sisters turn to me panicked and asked what was wrong. I explained to them what was happening and we sat there for 5-10 minutes discussing it, I quite liked that lol I’ve never managed to get them to talk about a book with me before.

Colleen Hoover has the power to suck you into the world her characters are in and make you forget about everything else. You’re left feeling like you’re living the lives with her characters and that my friends, is what makes an incredible book to me and is my main reason for this 5 star review. It may be a heartbreaking and a sad book but it was powerful and meaningful and I’m in awe of Colleen’s talent. I wish I could rate this higher than 5 because I really would

Thank you to Atria Books for providing an advance release copy!

How to review a Colleen Hoover book: write, erase, repeat until you’re a basket case. Why? Because nothing I say about Colleen’s writing will ever properly convey my feelings about her books. Lucky for her, my reviews have no merit (ha!) on her success. Colleen doesn’t need us to sell her books, she barely needs blurbs anymore! The back cover of her books could all say, “Read this book,” from here on out and we would mindlessly stumble to the bookstore like a hoard of zombies on The Walking Dead. Colleen’s writing is tried and true. She allows her readers to open their hearts to possibilities they’ve likely never considered, feel all the feels, and close the book enlightened and refreshed.

Despite all the good, I was still scared of reading this book. In a lot of ways, I feel like the world discourages people from getting married, starting families, and enjoying the good that comes from having a loving relationship. After reading the blurb, I was worried this would be another story to give marriage a bad name. Clearly, I should trust Colleen more. She’s always the first to brag on her #legit husband and constantly has good things to say about her family.

My favorite thing about All Your Perfects were the imperfections. Fear not, as usual, Colleen’s writing is flawless and her storytelling sucked me in from the first sentence. However, Graham and Quinn’s relationship is imperfect, just like the rest of our human relationships, and it was absolutely refreshing! Most romance books take us on unimaginable journies with beautiful people, beautiful places, and whirlwind love stories. Don’t get me wrong, I like these books, too! It’s nice to escape reality and read a happy story, realistic or not, every now and then. In some ways, however, these stories may be setting us up for failure in our real lives, especially if we expect our own stories to be as perfect as the ones we read. The majority of books end as the characters get married or the epilogue will feature the characters with their 2.5 children and a tender happily ever after. Colleen Hoover takes her readers past the happily ever after to the middle of marriage, something I have never experienced in a romance novel before.

Whether we struggle in our relationships in the same way as Graham and Quinn, I think their story is real and relatable for every married couple and offers a practical look for anyone considering a long-term relationship in their lifetime. As much as we might wish it were true, life isn’t a romance novel. Life is hard, messy, and love isn’t perfect because people aren’t perfect. The beauty of marriage comes from choosing to love during the mess and despite imperfections.

While there are many obvious themes in this story, the main theme that stood out to me was communication and it’s importance in relationships. Without it, negative thoughts and resentment build up over time, leading to a huge barrier between people that eventually feels impossible to climb. Colleen’s writing makes this concept clear as day while showing how the majority of problems could have been avoided if the characters talked things out, something all of us could learn from.

I’m so thankful for the opportunity to read this beautiful and sobering look at life and love. I appreciate the lessons Colleen infused into this story – Loving the life you live and loving the person you love. She takes readers back to the basics after life has left things muddled. This will be a story that sticks with me for life.

Be sure to pick up All Your Perfects TODAY!!

This book is about the highest of highs and lowest of lows in a marriage.

It was a such a emotional rollercoaster. My own emotions went back and forth as well as my feelings towards Quinn and Graham. They go through something so unbelievably hard as a married couple and it puts things into perspective. So many people are blessed everyday with children that I sometimes forget about those who have a harder time. It almost makes me feel terrible for every time I’ve complained about my child’s behavior or lack of sleep. Some people would sell everything to have those “problems”.

The writing is just so perfectly beautiful. Colleen really does get better with every book. I pay such close attention to every word because I want to gain as much from the story as I possibly can. I have this terrible habit of forgetting what certain books are about after awhile because I read so many. I will not be forgetting anything about this book! My concentration was at an all time high.

Right from the beginning with their unconventional introduction I was hooked. Such a powerful way to meet and connect with someone. Quinn has a strength that she doesn’t even realize she has. She goes through so much and every little thought that goes through her head and her explanations for her actions, I understood it all. How she felt at the time was how I could picture myself feeling and having the same inner dialogue if I were in that situation. She really loves Graham and she just wants him to have everything she may not be able to give him. Even while she loves him when secrets come to light she has no problem walking away. Maybe she used it as an excuse to finally get out but I really think she was just so hurt. And I was so hurt for her because of everything she was already going through and her past relationship trauma. I definitely wanted to scream at Quinn at times to just open her mouth and talk to her husband!

Graham had his unflattering moments absolutely. There actually may be some trigger points in here for people. I know that normally it is one for me, however I get it. I get why everything happened and the way it happened. I hated it! But it was so unfortunately realistic for what this couple was going thorough. After he explains himself I felt myself softening even though I was still so mad at him. He held on so tight even long after Quinn had let go of their marriage. He was a huge source of strength for her even when she didn’t realize it. He may have had his moments of wanting to give up but I don’t think he ever really does, not in the way she does. She emotionally disconnects. He was just scared of being the reason Quinn was unhappy when all he really wants is for her to BE happy. So he does things that are out of character. You can feel his love in every word he speaks to her. His apologies or even just the way he says her name is said with such pain and devotion. Gah! There’s so many emotions, so many layers and so much love. And while I was hoping for a little different outcome this couple still gets the ending that was meant for them. I read this in one day. I haven’t done that with a book in a long time if that gives any indication of how deep this story settled into my heart. I needed answers and I just couldn’t wait so I didn’t ?

"I don’t know where you went or when you left, but I have no idea how to bring you back. I am so alone. We live together. We eat together. We sleep together. But I have never felt more alone in my entire life.”

Heart-wrenching but compelling story of a marriage in crisis. Colleen Hoover captures the intensity, obstacles and beauty of long-term relationships. Highly recommend!

"The quietness is what drew me to him the first day I met him. It made me feel at peace. Funny how that same quietness makes me uneasy now."

THIS BOOK! I am often reluctant to read a book that has a lot of hype surrounding it, or has tons of 5-star reviews. But this book lives up to every accolade and is one of Colleen Hoover's best books. It is poignant, funny, real and difficult. But Graham and Quinn drew me in and I fell in love with Graham. What a fantastic character! This couple meets in a very unexpected way and the beginning of the book took me my surprise.

I am a huge fan of alternating between past and present and the author does a masterful job of SHOWING us how deep this couple's love was. There was no telling. I felt every emotion, every heartbreak and every little triumph. The sometimes ugly side of marriage is on full display here, along with the beauty and joy of unconditional love.

"The most disturbing thing about it is how skilled we are at pretending nothing has changed. We don’t talk about it. We’re alike in a lot of ways, one of them being our ability to avoid the things that need the most attention."

I could not put this book down and devoured every page. Is the subject matter heartbreaking? Yes. But the story is so perfectly paced and the characters are so relatable that I simply could not wait to see where their story would end up. I love a good book about marriage and 'All Your Perfects' is one of my favorites. It takes a lot to make me cry but I teared up many times while reading this book!

"It’s strange how I can miss a person who is still here. It’s strange that I can miss making love to a person I still have sex with. "

Quinn's suffering affects not only her husband but everyone around her. There is plenty to love about this book and it is not just one long emotional story. Graham may be the most loving partner ever but will his love and devotion to his wife be enough to save his marriage?

"My husband’s heart is my saving grace, but his physical touch has become my enemy."

I was wowed by this book and thoroughly enjoyed every single page. One of Colleen Hoover's very best. Don't miss this one.

I honestly, HONESTY didn’t think I would love this book for two reasons.

You see, I was doubting my love for Colleen’s writing. I wondered why she was even my all-time favorite author. For a moment I forgot about how fantastic her books are and her amazing talent and I started questioning everything about my love towards her. “Do I just like her books because she is so popular and I want to go with the flow and like her because everyone else does? Do I really, truly, wholeheartedly LOVE her stories with every fiber of my being to call her my ALL-TIME favorite author? Should I even love her books this much? Because some people are really not into her stories and they are not afraid to say it and sometimes they kind of make me feel ashamed for liking her and I don’t know anything anymore.” Those were thoughts that ran through my head from the moment Colleen published Without Merit almost a year ago until just a few hours ago before I started All Your Perfects. But all of those questions and doubts are all gone now that I finished reading this masterpiece of a book. Now I remember the reason I am proud to call her my all-time favorite author and that is simply because she has an extraordinary talent and her words make my heart feel complete. She’s always been great at writing heartwarming, heart wrenching and heartbreaking stories but she outdid herself with this one.

Which kind of brings me to the second reason I didn’t think I would love this book. I’m not a fan of stories about failing marriages. When I pick up a book I want to read all about how the couple meets and how they fall in love not how they fall out of love—which I thought would be this book in a nutshell. But with Quinn and Graham’s story you get both, you get the ugly, broken parts and the beautiful, happy parts. There are NOW chapters and THEN chapters. To be honest when I started reading I could picture myself telling you all about how I loved the THEN chapters more than I did the NOW chapters because it was hard for me to see things through Quinn’s eyes in the NOW since we are polar opposites but I actually loved them all equally. I loved reading about how they fell in love as well as how they fought for their marriage. I never thought I’d enjoy that but Quinn and Graham’s relationship is beautiful even when it is at its ugliest.

All Your Perfects is by far the most emotional book Colleen has ever written in my opinion. I am writing this words through the ugliest puffy and blurry eyes ever because I still cannot stop crying and I probably never will. Of all her stories and all her characters this is the story I can relate to the least and it is one of my favorites if not my favorite (can’t make up my mind, what’s new). It is SO beautifully written and thought out and full of love and emotion and tiny details so characteristic of Colleen’s books that will make you love and cherish every single word.

If I had a physical copy of this book you, it would be full of post-its to mark my favorite parts. FULL, I’m telling you—but ya girl is broke so there’s that. There were so many times I had to stop and take deep breaths to stop my heart from jumping out of my body and flying over to Colleen’s house so it could give her a hug for the beautiful moments and punch her in the face for making it hurt. If that doesn’t sound like the most amazing experience to you then we cannot be friends and if we are already friends then excuse me, how are we even friends?!

Anyway, you get my point. This book is incredible, breathtaking, magnificent and more so you should stop whatever you’re doing and pick up this book now.

The review contains what might be possible triggers for some readers at the END of the review.

Just when I thought CoHo couldn't write anything better than It Ends With Us, which is one of my all-time favorite books ever, she goes and writes the brilliance that is All Your Perfects. This book, you guys!! I almost have no words to describe it, but that could partially be because I'm so overwhelmed with ALL the emotions and feels this book gave me.

I know that there is nothing Hoover writes that I won't read, but this is a truly special book, and as far as the actual plot, I personally think you need to go into it mostly blind, and I'm glad that the book synopsis didn't give everything away because there are so many things about the story that you just need to go in and feel for yourself and just become the big, sobbing mess like I was. However, the subject matter(s) in the book could be very hard for some readers, parts actually were for me, but after reading it, I felt as if CoHo saw right into my very heart and soul and understood every nuance of what I felt about some of these issues. It was brilliantly and sensitively handled and healing in a way. But because these are possible triggers for some readers, I'm going to list them at the very end of my review in so if you DON'T want to know what these triggers are, then make sure you skip them at the very end of my review!!

If there is one thing that Hoover does, it is to make you feel every single emotion of the characters. That is exactly what happens here with Quinn and Graham as they go through the ups and downs of their relationship after being married for a decade. It is just so riveting and at times so heartbreaking, that I felt like I was being shattered to pieces as I read everything that was unfolding. From someone who has been in a marriage filled with ups and downs and its shares of imperfections for over 20 years, I can say without a doubt that Hoover's portrayal of marriage was so real and just so very relatable. I honestly appreciated that since many books tend to leave out the imperfect, messy, awful, and REAL side of marriage and romantic relationships.

Saying "I Do" doesn't mean that married life is going to be a fairy tale like so many books depict, and Hoover's novel was just gorgeous and perfect and beautiful because she shows how marriage is not all romance and flowers but it is often a big damn mess even when the couple loves each other and are soulmates! Wow, Hoover really shows that being committed in a marriage is hard work, especially when there are serious issues that can try to tear a couple in pieces and how working on being in the marriage is not easy at all since marriage involves two very flawed people.

There is a message in All Your Perfects about loving, forgiveness, and relationships that is so valuable even to someone like me who has been in a committed relationship with the same person for almost 25 years. Read this book! You won't regret it! You'll love'll cry and be devastated and you'll be a mess like I was but then you'll appreciate the beautifulness of this book. I know this is one book that I'll be reading again and again. All Your Perfects is more than deserving of 5 perfect stars! I don't know what Hoover has in store for us next, but I'll be waiting with bated breath to read it because I know it will extraordinary, as always.

**Thank you to NetGalley and Atria Books for my advanced reader copy in exchange for my fair and honest review.**

*Triggers That Might Be Challenging to Some Readers*

The book tackles the topics of infertility and the associated grief and depression, miscarriage and the associated grief and depression, and infidelity.

What. the. hell, Colleen?!

Gah! 1:40am. I’m such a mixed pile of emotions right now. I feel like my heart broke and was glued together a thousand times over. I feel the adrenaline high like I just exited one of those carnival rides that swings you back and forth like a pendulum. I’m dizzy and I don’t know which way is up. I feel wickedly nauseous and giddy at the same time. I want to find relief in vomiting my uncertainty, and then run to gorge on cotton candy, and then do it all over again! 

Told from alternating points of view between the past and the present, this story is about the marriage between Graham and Quinn. In the past, they meet in the most unlikely of circumstances (you’ve really outdone yourself here Colleen), they connect, and fall in love. In the present, they are married and are struggling to start a family.

What keeps a marriage together?
True love?
Devotion ?

Graham & Quinn’s story tests all those theories, and then some. 

Happily Ever After isn't a given. It is hard work.  It needs to be wanted. Fought for. Cherished. All Your Perfects is about rising to and facing that challenge.  

Graham and Quinn make a good example of an “everyman couple”. Not everyone will have or face the same issues they specifically encounter, but there’s a reality and hard truth behind the FEELINGS expressed, especially Quinn’s. But to me, It was more than that. Quinn’s insecurities, her actions, her fears, her longing, her sadness - it’s everything I’ve felt at one point in my life. It’s validating. It’s also scary and enlightening.

Again, Colleen brings it full circle by extracting a heavy and emotional reader response (at least in me anyway!). She has a knack for slowly building and drawing out all the feelings, and then spitting them out; like you were suddenly branded by a cattle prod. Uncomfortable is a running theme, so be prepared to squirm. And just when you think it’s all about to go to crap, a twist. Argh! *Pulls hard at hair*

This has all the elements of Hoover’s style: funny and witty conversation, awkward situations, beautiful, poetic, and antidotal advice, and a swoon-worthy hero in Graham. Gawd, one should be so lucky to be loved by someone with his tenacity!

“But we’re also going to have bad days and sad days and days that test our resolve. Those are the days I want you to feel the absolute weight of my love for you.”

See? S-W-O-O-N.

I found this story to have the most emotional turmoil out of all of Colleen’s books to date. And I’ve read all of them over the course of the last 5 years. I sped through that last 50% of the book, determined to know the end. It’s that intense. 

All I’ve gotta say is read this book.
It’s worth every second.

“If you only shine light on your flaws, all your perfects will dim.”

So my initial reaction as I started getting into the story was hopeful. It's not my usual style of romance, since I tend to lean more towards the silly and sarcastic. I hate crying, dammit! But it wasn't going to happen this time, I promised myself. I will stay strong, stoic to the bitter end. My hard shell will remain intact. I stroked my hypothetical lady-beard and said, "Hmmm... yes, these words are lovely," keeping myself at a distance. There were moments of pure poetry in Hoover's writing, beautiful quotable lines (that I'm technically not supposed to quote because the copy I read wasn't actually a finished version... sorry) that will no doubt be printed out and framed on walls, or even tattooed on bodies. My point is that the words held weight and meaning, an individual warmth for each reader. And here inlaid the problem.

The further I got into the story, the more uncomfortable I became. Not because the words were any less poetic, but because they held too much weight. I got dragged down by the feelings they invoked in me. The chapters alternated between the past and present. We got to see a beautiful relationship forming, while simultaneously seeing it fall apart. Reading before bed, I made sure to put the book down at the end of a THEN chapter, so I didn't taint my dreams with the sadness and depression. Thankfully, as the end of the book neared, I actually came to love the NOW chapters just as much. I was rooting for them! I wanted to know for sure that everything would be okay, that these completely fictional characters would have a happy ending, that no matter the decision they made, it would be the right one for them. And I would have blamed the damn author if she had screwed it up in any way, shape, or form. *give Colleen side-eye*

I'm not going to tell you how it ends. I mean, if you've ever read a book by Colleen Hoover, you know how they can feel like a punch in the gut, even when you think you've got it all figured out. It's not so much about the outcome as it is the journey to get there. I won't tell you that all dreams came true, and the book exploded with rainbows and sweet brown-eyed puppies. On the flip side, I also won't tell you that they all died in the end, so there's that. But I do want to say real quick that Colleen Hoover handled a heart-wrenching topic with grace and sensitivity. This book will be the bringer of tears, the breaker of hearts.

SPOILERS WILL BE THROUGHOUT THIS REVIEW!!! Normally I try to keep spoilers out of my reviews but occasionally I find it hard not to discuss a particular aspect. In this case, the thing I want to discuss was such a prominent and important piece of the puzzle that I can't not discuss it. So spoilers begin now...

Infertility. Colleen Hoover decided to tackle a married couple struggling with infertility. Wow. I never knew how many women (and men) were affected by this issue until I had my own struggles trying to get pregnant. I won't go into all of my personal story here, but the gist is eighteen months of trying plus one miscarriage. My mother and sister both had miscarriages while trying to get pregnant too. When we announed our pregnancy on Facebook the first time we briefly mentioned our struggles to get pregnant (which I'm fully aware don't compare to what many women face), and I can't tell you how many people contacted me publicly and privately to tell me that they had or were struggling with infertility as well. This topic is so, so personal to many. And Colleen Hoover did it justice. She really did.

That being said, I could and could not relate to Quinn. Where Quinn and Graham had been trying to get pregnant for several years, it only took me a year and a half. Even through that year and a half each and every month was a roller coaster of emotions. The hope. The disappointment. I never got to the level of depression as Quinn though. While each month that it didn't happen for us was a huge disappointment, I just wasn't to the same level of devastation. I didn't struggle with touching my husband or carrying on our physical relationship. I did go through a period of several months of almost sabotaging our chances in a backwards attempt to prevent my disappointment. How screwed up is that? Husband and I did take a "break" from trying where we just hoped it would happen naturally. Eventually we had to have help with a round of medication to ensure my cycle was regular (it was not). But through the entire process I had a lot of mental struggles that were a bit different from Quinn'--yet so similar. I wondered if I was being punished by God for some prior sin in my life. Yet I had to work my way back to the place in my faith where I believed that God is still good...even He never blessed me with children. Quinn's journey isn't really spiritual at all, but she does have to work toward finding a way to be happy no matter what path her life goes.

Graham guys...I mostly loved him, but there were a few moments I hated him. He tried so incredibly hard to support Quinn while keeping their marriage afloat. He took so much pain from her yet tried to minimize the amount of pain she felt. It was easy to see that through their struggles he was still completely in love with her. Even still I was so angry and disappointed in him at one point. Despite that, his fight to save their marriage was something beautiful to read.

I really appreciated Colleen Hoover's portrayal of marriage in this book. While I love to read books about romance and relationships, sometimes book relationships are so beyond unrealistic...especially when it comes to happily ever afters. Colleen Hoover really showed how much commitment and effort it takes to maintain a marriage...ANY marriage. I love books, but sometimes I hate how effortless they make relationships seem. A character is attracted to another character. They feel some physical sensations. All of a sudden there are emotions. And it was fate. The end. Nothing real. No substance. Nothing to fight for. And no struggles. All Your Perfects showed one of the most real marriages and struggles that I've read.

One thing I did want to mention is that Quinn discusses how people ask insensitive questions. She actually comments "they have no compassion for people in my situation." And I just wanted to touch on this for a minute. Sure there are some who have no compassion, but I think most people just don't think. They're not intentionally hurting you. They just don't really think much about you and what you could be going through. They don't realize that you're in pain...

Favorite quotes:
-Graham laughs, "You say that like marriage is a Category 5 hurricane." ... "Not all the time. But I think there are Category 5 moments in every marriage."

-Betrayal hurts the same on any level when it's your husband doing the betraying.

-"Most girls grow up dreaming of a successful career. I was always too embarrassed to admit that I wanted to work from home and have a bunch of babies." "That's not embarrassing." "Yes it is. Women nowadays are supposed to want to amount to more than just being a mother. Feminism and all that."

-...a person can understand a behavior without excusing it.

-No matter how much you love someone--the capacity of that love is meaningless if it outweighs your capacity to forgive.

-A person can't confidently proclaim what they would have done or how they would have felt in a situation they've never been in.

All Your Perfects does jump back and forth chronologically which is something that I usually struggle with. In this case, I didn't mind it at all. Each section was interesting enough on it's own that I never dreaded swapping from then to now or vice versa. The "Then" sections were where we got to witness Quinn and Graham fall in love and where you get the warm and fuzzies. The "Now" sections dived deep into the conflict of the infertility and marriage struggles these two had. Both were emotionally gripping.

I do want to warn that there is language and sexual scenes and content.

All in all, I loved All Your Perfects. I'll give it 4.5 Stars. I read it quickly. I loved the characters and their struggles. I loved the honest and real portrayal of marriage as well as infertility. I felt a wide range of emotions while reading this one. Where normally books that alternate chronologically really bother me, All Your Perfects did not. Have you read All Your Perfects? What did you think? Let me know!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Colleen Hoover is one of my favorite authors. Not many can evoke the kind of emotion she does with each and every book. All Your Perfects may be her most emotional one yet, at least for me it was.

Quinn and Graham’s love story starts out in an unconventional way. From the moment they met, to when they married, to now, 7 years after that, it’s apparent that fate put them together. They are still just as much in love now as they were in the beginning, but things out of their control has changed things for them. Life has a way of doing that. Sometimes love isn’t enough, but sometimes, it is.

All Your Perfects went back and forth from past to present by each chapter. This was brilliant. Just as I thought the present was too much and I needed a break, I got to see a chapter of the past. Of Quinn and Graham blissfully in love. It made the book easier to read. And seeing their relationship build gave you insight into the couple they were. A couple that was destined to be together from the start.

My thoughts on this book are complicated. There are so many things about this book that were contradictions for me. I loved it and hated it at the same time. I could relate to the story and the main characters in ways I’ve never related to another book/character, yet there were many choices made and things done I couldn’t relate to at all. When it’s all said and done, this is the journey of Graham and Quinn. And I could never judge this couple on how they handled the hand the had been dealt. Unless you’ve walked a mile in their shoes, neither could you.

Though much of the book was hard for me to read, I thought Hoover ended this story perfectly. The last 10% had me sobbing, but those tears were mostly happy. I loved how the book ended. I loved how real, raw, and brilliant this book was. I loved that a light was shined on a topic that effects many of us, but most people don’t understand it or want to talk about it. I, for one, am glad that most people don’t get it and won’t be able to relate. But for those of us that can, I feel that Colleen did justice to this story and this topic and I’m happy that this book was written. As hard as it was to read at times, I’m glad I read it.

All Your Perfects is an unforgettable, unputdownable, and completely captivating read. It’s a book that will forever leave a mark on my heart. If you’re looking for a book to give you all the feels, one that shows the good, bad, and ugly side of marriage and life, but one that will leave you hopeful and believing in true love, pick this book up. It’s a journey you need to read to experience.

I went into reading this story knowing absolutely nothing about it. Colleen was very tight lipped about not revealing anything which I appreciate. I got to say it’s difficult reading the emotional turmoil. In the end, it’s worth it. Colleen breaks up this emotional story into the now and then. The then helps ease you back into the emotional struggles one chapter at a time.

I constantly compared my marriage to Graham and Quinn’s. I found similar behaviors, reactions, and actions. I was surprised how given different circumstances the same scenario happened to me.
I’ve learned that marriage is a process and it has its ups and downs, but these circumstances shouldn’t define the individual. Only actions define a person. Couples can’t predict what life will throw at them, but they can process the situation as it occurs.

That brings me to Graham and Quinn, a married couple, who set goals, made plans, and shared expectations with one another. No amount of planning can predict how each individual will react thru the different stages in life. There story is a testament to how they were tested.
These characters are honest and raw with their emotions. We get a look at the foundation they built from the beginning and get to discover where the cracks formed.

On so many levels I can relate to Quinn’s character not so much with her situation, but her sense of failure in other matters. Marriage takes work. Working through situations together is scary because it requires each individual to become vulnerable. Being vulnerable might seem like a weakness, yet it actually helps alleviate the doubts the other individual has by second guessing the other. Colleen’s method for resolving these issues was smart.

So many of Colleen’s comments, in the form of advice, had me shaking my head in agreement. I thought to myself how does she know so much about my life? While my circumstances are different the outcome is the same. Graham and Quinn’s reactions and behavior were quite similar to my own situation.

I have spent years going to marriage therapy and it has opened my eyes to so many issues, that it was a struggle to process all of them, so I took a break and when I returned months later I found a woman who focused on healing me. You just reaffirmed the steps I chose in my healing process with this story. I’ve been waiting for confirmation that the choices I made were right.

ALL YOUR PERFECTS hooked me from the very first page and I’m not embarrassed to tell you that I did not do any of my household chores until I was finished reading! Needless to say, my husband was constantly yelling at me to stop reading! Obviously he has never read a Colleen Hoover novel because everyone knows once you start there is no way to stop. I devour her stories and everyone of them has crushed my heart and left me crying. ALL YOUR PERFECTS does not disappoint. Colleen Hoover, you owe me a box of tissues! There isn’t a single thing about this book that I didn’t love. It was wonderful, mesmerizing, hypnotizing, heartbreaking and breathtaking.

This is going to be a shorter review because my honest opinion is that it’s best to go into ALL YOUR PERFECTS knowing as little as possible about the actual story so I won’t tell you anything that’ll ruin the experience here. But I can say that I was hooked from the very first page and completely drawn into these characters’ lives. I loved that the story was serious but little parts made me laugh out loud which broke up the more emotionally charged scenes. I swooned, proclaimed my undying love for ALL YOUR PERFECTS and had to take many breaks to wipe the tears that were flowing freely down my face more than once. Quinn and Graham will break your heart over and over again just like they did to me.

Once I started reading ALL YOUR PERFECTS I discovered that there’s even more to this story than meets the eye. There’s an added layer to it that I absolutely loved but that I won’t mention because discovering it as you read is honestly the best. One of the things I love most about Colleen Hoover’s writing is how deeply she makes me care for her characters and how strongly she makes me feel for them. Deception and pain, love and loss, secrets and truths, hope and redemption—they all twist and tangle together creating another unforgettable novel from one of the freshest and most trusted voices in romance. Finally, you need to read ALL YOUR PERFECTS! It will surprise, shock, impress, grip and absorb you into its story. And those wonderful characters, how happy I am for having ‘met’ them! They will stick with me for a very long time. I just know the same thing will happen for you…

I'm not sure there's an author out there who puts me through the wringer consistently with each new book quite like Colleen Hoover does. I feel like her tagline should be "expect the unexpected... and tears" because she always manages to floor me with the twists in her books. She also makes me cry — to varying degrees depending on the book and my mood — every single time. These are all great things, and reasons she will forever be an auto-buy/auto-request author.

I'm not going to dive too deep into the story of All Your Perfects because, again, I feel Colleen's books are best just experienced. Truth be told, I don't even read her blurbs or any reviews for her books before I go in. I like jumping in totally blind — with tissues and a chilled bottle of wine on hand — and riding the roller coaster of emotions. That's exactly what I did with All Your Perfects over the weekend. I read it in, quite literally, one sitting. (Seriously, my Apple Watch stats prove it. It kept encouraging me to get up and move around and I kept ignoring it because I had to know how everything played out.)

All Your Perfects was quintessential CoHo. I'll admit I was a little nervous to read about a marriage falling apart, because I as an unmarried woman can have a tough time relating to books like that at times. This was not one of those times. The writing was so real and so raw that I could relate to Quinn and Graham's struggles despite having no basis for that in my experiences. I'll be the first to admit I had a love/hate relationship with both main characters at times. They're both flawed and they both do some awful stuff to each other. I mean, there's a reason their marriage is struggling. (Or, to be more precise, several.) But, I was still rooting for them. The idea of them splitting up broke my heart. The struggles that led them down this path also made my heart hurt.

If you've watched the musical/movie The Last Five Years, there were parts of All Your Perfects which reminded me a lot of it. Maybe not plot-wise, but the way the setting flipped back and forth between then and now certainly did. So did all the feels and emotions I had as a result. It was a beautiful book and I'll close with this — I had more happy tears than sad tears. But there were tears. And wine. All Your Perfects is one of my new favorite CoHo books.

5 oh please hold my heart Stars

Oh Colleen, I loooooooved this. I went in to this 100% blind because of my very serious syndrome: Spoiler Phobia. However, I have since read the synopsis, and my friends, I would have been safe. If you have read a book by Ms. Hoover, you know her writing is all about the journey. She could even spell out in a few sentences what the story is about, but the experience is within the pages. I was effortlessly and immediately transported to Quinn and Graham’s lives from the very start.

We went back and forth from the present to the past, and the reason it worked so well was that while everything seemed so very dismal at times, we, the readers, were reminded of why Quinn and Graham so desperately needed to work this out and come out on the other side stronger. I will be honest, I was not sure at times how that would happen. These two soulmates took blow after blow after blow. It showed us that a couple who seemed so perfect for each other in every way could still be vulnerable to obstacles. Quinn and Graham were tested in ways that would bring anyone to their knees.

In the end it didn’t work out how I thought it might, but it worked out in a way that was so real and so emotional that I couldn’t deny how much I loved it. Their marriage went from the most solid ever, ever ever….to so fragile and delicate. I’m a hopeless romantic so I always held onto the thread of hope that the strength and depth of their relationship would pull them through and their love would never truly burn out…although it was terribly close, waaaaaay too close. I finished this book, but I haven’t finished thinking about it. I can’t stop thinking about this story. Colleen Hoover once again touched my heart and showed me that her words make life much richer and stay with you even after you close the book. It’s pretty much one of the best feelings in the world!

Happy reading!

All Your Perfects is a true testament to Colleen Hoover's uncanny ability to make her characters real and relate-able. I have never felt so closely connected to a character I've read than I did to Quinn. Her struggles, her thoughts, her actions, made complete sense to me. This book made me reflect on my own marriage, my past mistakes and made me see myself and my relationship in a new light.

There was a very clear message to this story - brutal and honest communication is paramount to keeping a relationship afloat. So many marriages breakdown, couples divorcing without going through nearly as much heartache as what Quinn and Graham endure in this tale.

From their unique 'meet cute' to their heartbreaking struggles, Graham and Quinn's story had me hooked. I absolutely devoured this book, even though at times it was difficult to read and I needed a breather before continuing because it all felt a little too real and too sad. Mostly, their relationship was devastatingly beautiful, even when difficult and full of anger.

Days later and I still cannot get this book out of my head. I keep flicking back through the pages to all the points that hit me the most (and there are so many!). Truly a magnificent read, one that will forever stay with me.

With each book release Colleen Hoover only further convinces me that she will forever be one of my favorite authors. Her words are unlike any other, her writing gets me in the gut, her quirkiness and emotional style breaks my heart, makes me laugh, cry, and heals me at the same time. All Your Perfects was absolutely perfect! I'd give it more than five stars if I could.

I finished this book two days ago, and I want to say for a much awaited book and a 100% CoHo fan that I am as I've read every book Colleen has written, this book was THEY hardest to read. I kept having to take a moment and then I was dying to skip over parts to see what happen next. But being the loyal book nerd that I am, and staying loyal to the rule "patience." I waited, except with every turn of the page it got harder, so I read faster.

I've also decided after I finished reading to check out what others thought of the book and their reviews, but some of them just made me angry as I feel the ones that gave it low ratings just didn't get it with Quinn & Graham and focused on the wrong issues and problems they we're going through and the ones that gave it high ratings really enjoyed CoHo's story. I on the other hand did not enjoy this story, I gave it a four as it was really well written as we all know Colleen is a great writer, but it was a very true, and true to life situation story that hits home to some of us, but also I kept waiting for the "HOPE part" to kick in, the ray of sunshine. Sometimes before I read a book I look to see if there is a HEA in some of the reviews, but never with CoHo's books as I like the surprises and I guess that has to do with her writing style.

I don't like to post reviews pointing out the story as I'm not going to spoil it for anyone, or cast my opinion onto anyone, but I will say this. No marriage is perfect! If someone tells you otherwise, their lying! Nobody is perfect that is a fact! [What Graham did was a mistake and wrong and he admitted to it. I would have forgiven him, but not right away. If you had to be honest with their situation you would show forgiveness as did Quinn. (hide spoiler)]

I'm going to throw this out there too, depression is real and if a person doesn't speak out or no one recognizes it and helps, it leads to the unthinkable-broken marriages, suicide, etc.

I volunteered to read this ARC in exchange for my honest review.

I honestly didn’t know what this book was about when I requested it through NetGalley. All I saw was the title and the name “Colleen Hoover” and I was sold. From the first chapter I knew I was in for it.
By the second chapter, I stopped to look for a box of tissues because I felt the need for it was near. By chapter three, I had to stop and make a store run for some ice cream, I was trying to anticipate my heart break and comfort food always is a plus!!!! (Trust me this book took me longer than usual to read because I just could not!!!)
Does anyone set the mood to read a book? I don’t know why I felt the need to play some Kci and Jojo while reading but damn this made me cry even more.

All your perfect is such an imperfect read and at the same time contained so many truths. Not only was this book beautifully written but it had me saying “Wow” to too many things and sitting back to pondering about the topic of the book.
I must admit that I enjoyed the characters in the past because everything was so much simpler. Quinn and Graham struggles were so hard to read because of the truth behind their story.

Overall, I enjoyed every minute of this book and I wish to pass this book down to friends that I know are in the same boat as Quinn and Graham. Colleen leaves you thinking about the struggle of marriage, owning your imperfections and remembering to love your partner for all the right reasons. All Your Perfects will leave you heart broken for a bit but left me in the end with a smile because the way it ended to me was beautiful.
Definitely a must read and I can’t wait for my paperback that I ordered to come to add this book to my bookshelf.

I don’t really have the words to tell you how I feel about this book. Colleen Hoover is so good at drawing emotion out of me, especially with her adult books. Fair warning, this is an intense and heartbreaking book. Pick it up when you’re in the mood for that because it’s not an easy, fluffy, happy read. The pain is not one moment and done. It’s a drawn out, gut wrenching experience. While it took me by surprise, I was so happy to have gone on this journey with these characters.

ALL YOUR PERFECTS is about a struggling marriage. They’ve been struggling for years, actually. There’s one big issue that’s looming between them and they don’t know how to prevent it from taking over their love and ending their marriage. I don’t want to mention what that is. This book is definitely best experienced as you read it.

As with IT ENDS WITH US, I can’t say I have experience on what the heroine is going through personally. But I was able to easily understand her. I connected with her desires, her fears, her suffering. This is one of my favorite things about Colleen’s writing. It’s so honest and just human that you can’t help but feel as if you are in the characters shoes.

Don’t worry, there’s some light in between the darkness. This is told in a then and now fashion. The earlier parts are about how they fell in love and they were so adorable and uplifting that they balanced the current situation perfectly. They also gave just the right glimpse into the love that these two shared. How much they belong together. I can honestly say I fell so hard for Graham THEN and then so much more NOW.

Like I said, this isn’t a book to read. But it’s a beautiful story. There’s really no other word for it. Raw and real, Colleen Hoover took me on a roller coaster of emotions that I didn’t want to look away from. It was masterfully done and it may be one of my favorite books by her in a while. Definitely top 3. Can’t wait to see what she does next.

All Your Perfects is a beautiful and realistic story depicting how two people can move from being hopelessly in love at the beginning of their relationship to fighting for each other when times get tough.

I'd like to start of my review by admitting that I didn't totally understand Quinn's unhappiness at first. I found it baffling as to how she could be so sad in her marriage yet she wants to have a baby. Babies don't fix things, it only makes the situation more stressful. But as the story progresses and I begin to learn more about what she's going through and why Graham's love hurt her so much then I could sympathize with Quinn and where she's coming from.

I really like how real and relatable their problems are, especially on Quinn's part. I don't want to specify too much but I do want to say this is something many women face and I like that Colleen explored this issue so much.
Graham is definitely one of a kind, in the way that he's so loving and understanding of his wife and is accepting of everything about her. I think Quinn had all these expectations and dreams going into their marriage, that while Graham shared and loved about her, he also knew within his heart that none of those things would shatter the love he has for her should they not achieve them. I believe Quinn lost this somewhere down the line and definitely needed to be reminded of what truly matters and why they got married to begin with.

Being that the story is written in past and present times, you really get to experience the highs of their relationship and the most hurtful times. I enjoyed getting to know these two and falling in love with their love. It definitely started out crazy but you quickly warm up to the intense feelings between them. I'd be smiling at their cuteness and then crying at their sadness. It's just that great of a story with superb writing. I haven't read a Hoover novel since Confess, but this book certainly has me hopping back on the CoHo train. I highly recommend!

“If you only shine light on your flaws, all your perfects will dim.”

The main characters, Quinn and Graham meet under unusual circumstances and form a bond practically straight away. The story is told from Quinn’s POV. I really liked the flashbacks showing THEN and NOW. It was great being able to see the before and after effects. I was drawn into the story from the very first chapter. Quinn and Graham were so relatable and likable. I easily became invested in their lives and outcome.

Colleen Hoover does a great job of painting a picture of a marriage that is both realistic and raw. She showcases problems that any couple could ultimately face and how those issues can lead to heartbreak and possibly healing. Life is never perfect. Relationships can feel far from perfect at times. But you learn to roll with the punches and weather the storm and hopefully you come out of it a better stronger person/couple.

I have to admit, when I read the synopsis, I thought I knew what to expect from this book. Turns out, I was wrong. I Should have known.
I think it’s probably best that way, to go in without knowing a lot about the story. All Your Perfects is not your typical love story that’s for sure. It was very much an emotionally charged read.(You might need tissues…) I’m still trying to completely process how I feel after reading it. After being put through the ringer, I can say that I throughly enjoyed this book. It was well worth the emotional rollercoaster I was on. I’d say this comes a close second to Colleen Hoover’s other book, It Ends With Us.

If you are looking for a different yet satisfying love story then I would recommend you try All Your Perfects.

RATING: 4½ out of 5.

All Your Perfects was my most anticipated read of 2018. To say that I was excited to read this book would be an understatement. Coho is one of my favorite authors. Her books touch me in a way that few books do.

All Your Perfects is a contemporary romance. The narrator is Quinn (1st person POV- the book starts when she is around 25). The other main character is Graham. The story is told in THEN and NOW. I was a bit nervous when I realized that was the format for this story. I do not usually like when a story is told this way. I am normally much more interested in one time period (usually the present). So the only way that this type of storytelling can work for me is if both time periods are equally good. And in this case they are both fantastic.

The beginning of this book got me hooked right from the start. But it was the format of THEN and NOW that actually took this book to the next level. In THEN you see a couple starting out. And in NOW you see the trouble that they are in. The story is heartbreaking and gut-wrenching. I am not going to spoil what the main issue is. But oh wow it will make you feel so much.

How Quinn and Graham met was so crazy. But I loved it. I really enjoyed getting to see their romance play out in between the story of their life now. This book made me feel happy. This book made me feel sad. This was such an unusual way to tell a love story. But it worked. I found both parts of this story riveting. I was equally invested in the past and the present.

There were some interesting supporting characters including Quinn's snobby mother and her sister. I do wish that both characters had even bigger roles in the story.

Coho books are always emotional. But I was not expecting this book to be so draining. I was not expecting to be sobbing. I was not expecting to feel as much as I did. This book will be very hard for some people to read. But I think that everyone will feel. And what more can you really want from a book.

Having read all things CoHo it was a no brainer that I would read this one...but what I didn’t take into consideration was the heart and soul that literally vibrates off the pages and dug it’s way into my heart. Yeah. Didn’t count on that. Colleen Hoover has a way of writing even the most mundane words with a realistic edge, filled with humor and heart that comes off as being more...more than was intended, balancing out absolute heartbreak and pain with a past that reminds us nothing is ever totally lost. This story delved into a subject I’ve seen and felt as an outsider but brought me that much closer to an understanding of how difficult something that seems like it should just be can be so not that simple. Although it isn’t a subject I know from experience I felt it. Walking in the footsteps of these characters although fictional made me really reflect on the most simple comments and gestures that I myself have most likely been guilty of. The absolute pain and loss is an entity unto itself in this story. It lives, breathes and has the power to destroy. Reflection. With words that are made to entertain, escape but in all reality have me come out a more understanding, possibly even kinder human. From a romance book? Yes. The emotional pull that is felt with a love so strong you think nothing can penetrate it. From cheering for them to realizing maybe after all it’s not enough. A tough one to read at times and it seriously makes me thank my lucky stars that I am not a “safe” reader...that I’m a girl that knows life, love, marriage, and friendships don’t always follow a perfect path but because of this knowledge you come out stronger and hopefully better than before. This story is special, it is poignant and it felt real. Thank you Ms Hoover. Your words matter.

So I had been checking and rechecking NetGalley since February to get my hands on AYP as early as possible. OMG I was so immensely excited when I finally got approved and this bad boy showed up on my kindle.

I really have to admit that the first half of this book did not draw me in much. I was seriously thinking that CoHo wasn't going to pull it off and then bam out of nowhere there's this huge turn of events and you know things are about to get real.

This book is so real, raw and full of unbridled passion. Passion between husband and wife but more importantly the passion of wanting something so badly that it over shadows everything else including the love for each other and the reason you want it so badly is for & with that person, the person you feel you are now hurting.

Quinn and Graham are battling something many couples deal with. I'm sure someone could read this book and see themselves in it, see their marriage in it. I'm not going to tell you what the issue is because why ruin it when you can get the fullest of impacts when you read this most hurting, honest look inside the trials and tribulations a couple can face. Somethings that they may get past or they may not.

Now you might wonder why I would 5 star a book that didn't at the beginning pull me in. The reason is that the second half was just so amazing and the end brought tears to my eyes and that is the biggest compliment that I can ever give an author because I do not cry when reading. I just don't. So Ms. Hoover I commend you on bringing tears to my eyes. You have done what so many have not.

There’s something so quietly addictive to the way Colleen Hoover tells a story. You just know you’re going to become immersed in the character’s lives and for better or worse she’s going to put those characters through the ringer and perhaps break your heart in the process. All Your Perfects is no exception. In it, she takes a long, intricate look at marriage and what happens when people and circumstances change over the course of time. We meet Quinn and Graham who’re brought together in the unlikeliest of circumstances when their lives just so happen to take unexpected turns at the same time. Fate seems to have intervened for them and we get to watch their story unfold with a Then and Now narrative. I’m not always a fan of this type of back and forth narrative but in Hoover’s hands it works and it works well. I actually think this style of narrative works so well for this particular story because we get to see how their love began (Then) along with how it’s falling apart (Now) and this created so much emotional suspense for me that I had to keep turning the pages to see how it all turned out.

Hoover tackles some serious subjects in this story…infertility, infidelity, the evolution of love, sex…all within a marriage that at times seems on the brink of destruction with two people so often in despair. It was compelling storytelling to say the least. What I also found so fascinating was Hoover’s ability to create characters who could at times be so frustrating while also pulling at your heartstrings. Needless to say, I read this in one sitting and I won’t be giving away any plot details because what I’ve discovered about reading Colleen Hoover’s books is half the fun is going into her stories blind. You know you’re going to be surprised in some way and she certainly doesn’t disappoint with this new novel. I still feel like It Ends With Us is my favorite of those I’ve read by her but this is definitely right up there with it.

“All Your Perfects” by Colleen Hoover

Can I gift given to one another of love letters locked in a box, that can only be opened on their 25th anniversary or when divorce seemed imminent, save Quinn and Graham’s marriage? Or will they be too late?

Quinn and Graham meet under an odd situation: both their partners are having an affair with each other. What they don’t expect is to find they have an almost instant bond with one another that they seem to suffer very little at their current situation. Instead, a few weeks later, they start spending time with one another and don’t really want that to change. They get married, fall into a daily routine, and soon start thinking about having a family.

Then infertility strikes. It changes Quinn in so many ways and soon it seems Graham has given up in many ways. They reach the point where Quinn is not sure she can be happy in their marriage and that Graham will be able to move on.

Hence the box of letters are opened... will they save their marriage or are they too little too late.

Sometimes focusing on all the perfect moments lead us to not be able to focus on what flaws and issues may damage us, as individuals and couples, and even friends.

A magnificent novel from Colleen Hoover. It is moving, touching, heartwarming, heartbreaking, and so very relatable.

“If you only shine light on your flaws, all your perfects will dim”

Rating: 4.9

4.25 stars--ALL YOUR PERFECTS by Colleen Hoover is a stand alone story focusing on Quinn Whitley and Graham Wells.

Told from first person perspective (Quinn) alternating between the present and the past ALL YOUR PERFECTS focuses the building relationship between Quinn and Graham, and the breakdown of their marriage following ten years of romance, love, struggle and loss.

Quinn Whitley and Graham Wells met under unfortunate but auspicious circumstances, circumstances that would have otherwise resulted in heartbreak, pain, humiliation and hurt. Six months later, Quinn and Graham would reconnect on their road to marriage and a happily ever after, but happily ever afters are only for fairy tales as our couple struggle with what was, and what will never be.

ALL YOUR PERFECTS is an emotional, impassioned and realistic look at one couple as they struggle with hope and heartache, promises and impossibilities. Colleen Hoover’s ALL YOUR PERFECTS is not a story about the idealized view of romance reality but of true reality, itself. The characters are flawed and imperfect; the relationship endures too many heartbreaks, and unrealized expectations.

ALL YOUR PERFECTS is a raw and thought-provoking story of second chances that will break your heart, and shatter your soul. Not an easy read ALL YOUR PERFECT is likely to cause a tear or ten, tears that will remain in your heart for a long time, thereafter.

‘If you only shine light on your flaws, all your perfects will dim.’

I've read a few of Colleen Hoover's books back in college but I have yet to pick up one of her newer ones. I've enjoyed them but I have to be honest, many of her books are what I would consider emotional porn. They're made to bring you intense emotions and I swear they're made to make you cry.

Going into this book I only knew the bare minimum about this book. I saw a few quotes here and there and I knew that it was about a failing marriage. What I did know is that I wanted to finally pick up another Colleen Hoover book. When I saw this book on Netgalley as a "wish" I knew I needed to click that button. I was lucky enough to be approved for this book.

I have to admit, I struggled with this book. I struggled with some of the actions of characters and honestly the characters themselves. I never truly felt connect with the characters. Now, Graham & Quinn were wonderful characters that were flawed and realistic, but I couldn't connect with them. Their story was tragic and beautiful at times and I can see why so many people have grabbed onto their story. Unfortunately, I just couldn't connect how I normally do.

As expected with any Colleen Hoover novel, it is well written. You are going to feel emotions and you're going to feel them very deeply. Colleen Hoover does emotions well, I may not have felt connected to the characters but I did feel emotions and even tear up a bit at moments.

All in all, it was a good book & well written.

*I was lucky enough to receive this book as a "wish" on Netgalley.

It is no secret that I love Colleen Hoover, so I was very excited when she had a new release come out. I have seen so many people talk about this one, and how amazing it was. I was a little worried about going into this story, as I knew it dealt with infertility issues.

Ok! So, this story really hit home for me. My husband and I have been trying to have a baby for seven years and it is just not happening. Colleen Hoover did a great job describing the feelings one may feel about themselves, about others, and the toll infertility can have on your life. I cried off and on throughout this story for Quinn and Graham, but also for my husband and I. It is hard to put into words how you feel about a story that really captures what you, yourself, is going through; how you can feel like you are failing yourself and others.

However; even though I really connected with this story it was not my favorite book of hers. I usually am on the edge of my seat and All The Perfects was a little slow and I found myself getting bored and waiting for something else to happen. I am not used to that while reading one of her books. Do not get me wrong, it was still very good and very powerful. I think this is a very important story and one that everyone needs to read (whether you suffer from infertility or not). I think it helps others see how even a question can be so hurtful to someone facing these challenges.

I loved the ending. We have two fur babies who are like our children. Yes, it is still hard but having them makes it a little bit easier.

Overall, I still enjoyed it.

This book needs a disclaimer. Like a big one! Because this is a very painful book to read and I mean that as the biggest compliment to the writing. It’s painful because you can feel how hard it is for Graham and Quinn. This book shows just how hard it is to make a marriage work regardless of how perfect your personalities fit.

This story really shows how circumstances can change the course for this couple. So besides the painful struggle for the couple to make it in their marriage, they have to deal with infertility issues. The story made me see how painful and how much it breaks down someone’s confidence not only in themselves but in the relationship.
The story does go back and forth between the present and the past. So Hoover shows us how the couple gets together and let me tell you it’s not in the most conventional way. These parts make up a great love story but when it’s coupled with the ‘Now’ parts of the story it only enhances just how hard it is for them. You know that the couple loves each other but this story really proves that love sometimes is just not enough.

I love Colleen Hoover’s books because she is always able to grab you and have you so enthralled with the story that you literally feel every emotion that the characters are feeling. This story is no different. Every pain, every tear, every struggle. You feel it. Down to your core so much that it may even cause you to go into a depression. Yet another reason to have a disclaimer.

Graham Wells & Quinn Whitley live in Connecticut. They met at one of the worst times in their lives, in the most awkward, unexpected way, not knowing their paths would later cross again. They are drawn to each other, and it’s like fate keeps bringing them together. They fall hard, and share a once in a lifetime, one of a kind special love. Then life happens and their future is derailed. They’ve been married for seven years, and their entire life has changed. They are two people who lost hope, and stopped talking about all the things that should never have been silenced. They kept feelings bottled up, and avoided communication. They’ve been broken for a while, and neither has a clue how to fix their relationship. They are lonely, damaged, and consumed by sadness. They can’t seem to break free from the cycle their in, and the strong foundation they once had continues to fall apart. The one thing that does remain is the love. Love was never their issue. Is their relationship beyond repair, or can they get back what they’ve lost, and find their way back to one another?

This story was unique, heartbreaking, and extremely emotional. It takes you from past to present in the life of two soulmates who are slowly slipping away from one another. I really enjoyed this book and didn’t want to put it down. The way this man loves his wife is breathtakingly beautiful. I just adored Graham! This book is about the importance of communication, making someone else your priority, and fighting for happiness, but most of all it’s about not giving up on love. ?

I love going in blind to all the books I read because it is like watching a movie in my head, allowing me to draw my own conclusions and guess where the story is going. I have found its VERY hard to accomplish this with Colleen Hoover books! I have to basically avoid all social media until I get the chance to have a free day (I have read all her books in one sitting)

Favorite Quote:

“I miss you, Quinn. So much. You're right here, but you aren't. I don't know where you went or when you left, but I have no idea how to bring you back. I am so alone. We live together. We eat together. We sleep together. But I have never felt more alone in my entire life.”

Marriage is hard, its messy and complicated and full of compromise. Quinn and Graham are the perfect example this. Being so focused on making the other person happy, there is a breakdown of communication leaving them both to draw their own conclusion of how the other person feels and ultimately almost destroying each other in the process.

This story is real, raw and emotional. I loved that this story is written in a way that it makes you feel like you are a close friend of the couple. You get to witness their journey and see inside both of their minds which I thought was genius. It enables you to have compassion and understanding in situations that we normally would just form opinions on without a second thought. This was not your typical CoHo book, there was ALOT of sex scenes. Definitely a different feel than her other books, but it was written perfectly.

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.

What a roller coaster of emotion! I loved it and I hated it. Simply that. The highs made me feel the giddiness of falling in love. The joy you have just looking into his eyes, the promise of the perfect future. The lows made me cringe. I loathed these parts of the book. I struggled to turn each page while tears slipped down my face. They were each needed. The love and the hate. The highs and the lows. Each page pushed us towards the not so perfect love in this story. Graham and Quinn etched themselves inside my heart. The past was wonderful and I couldn’t get enough but the present had me cringing and wanting to throw my phone each time a new chapter started. I felt it. I felt it all. The ache, oh the heartache. I was dragged down with them even though I was kicking and screaming before each turn of the page. This is the kind of story that makes you take a second look at your life. What are you rushing through? What are you not cherishing enough because to you it’s just another item in the day to get through? What have you become so accustomed to that you don’t even see the significance in the gift that you get every day? What negatives are you focusing on enough to outshine the perfects? I love her quote and I think I’m going to take it with me, make a little note my stick it on my mirror. “If you only shine light on your flaws, all your perfects will dim.”

Thank you Colleen. Thank you for the escape, for the joy and the heartache. Thank you for making me take a second look at my life and reminding me to let my perfects shine.

All Your Perfects is a love story that takes in all the marriage vows…for better, for worse, in sickness and in health, etc. Ms. Hoover’s story is of a never-ending love that is pushed to the brink by loss and depression.

All Your Perfects is perfectly told in dual time periods by Quinn. Through her, we see the unlikely start to her relationship with Graham, their over-the-top love, and the painful crumbling of their marriage.

I found Quinn and Graham’s situation painful. They grow distance from avoiding the elephant in the room. The misinterpretations that result from the avoidance are just as heartbreaking as the stupidity that results from the growing distance. Quinn’s perspective made everything feel hopeless. Without Graham’s point of view, their relationship seems doomed.

All Your Perfects is a beautiful story about love, commitment, and the impact of unfulfilled dreams and plans that didn’t work out. At times the book felt too hopeless to continue, but the mystery of the wooden box, and the power it held, kept me engaged. I appreciated the irony of Quinn and Graham’s siblings having the life they envisioned. I didn’t care for the stereotypical relationship Quinn had with her mother, but it was insightful of how Quinn approaches relationships in general. Juxtapose to that is Graham’s relationship with his family, which is built on a foundation of presumed positivity and support. The story culmination is unbelievably powerful in its revelation of Quinn. Another moving, memorable novel from Ms. Hoover, All Your Perfects left me raw, emotional, and ultimately in awe.

4.5 stars

Quinn & Graham didn't meet in best of circumstances but they couldn't deny the sparks that ignited between them. Eventually, they get married and live happily ever after. NOT! If only life could be that be simple, but it's not.

Quinn & Graham has hit a rough patch in their marriage and it's has gotten to the point where a decision needs to be made - Leave or Stay Together. But when it comes to matters of the heart, it's not always easy to make a decision.

This book left me emotionally drained. I'm not very familiar with Colleen Hoover books so I wasn't prepared for the sucker punch she had waiting for me.

One of the many things I loved about All Your Perfects was its rawness. The story alternated between then and now - so readers were able to see how the relationship started and how it has gotten to this point.

The characters were relatable and well-developed. I felt every break in Quinn & Graham's hearts. I know how it feels when communication between a couple breaks down. There were a few times I had to pause and reflect on my marriage. Marriage is work. You have to make a decision to always choose each other through the good and bad times. Unfortunately, some couple don't get to see forever.

I was doing such a great job keeping my emotions in check until it came down to that damn box. That box had me throwing out my reader's white flag. I surrendered and shed a few tears.

I look forward to reading more of Colleen Hoover's books. Highly Recommended!

There are myriad reasons why the connection between those involved in a marriage, or similar relationship, might become broken: financial hardship, the death of a child, addiction or, in the case of Graham and Quinn Wells, infertility. While Colleen Hoover has become famous for her thoughtful, emotionally-charged romance writing, I would hesitate to classify this as a romance; All Your Perfects is a powerful story that describes an especially challenging series of events and the resilient couple who must decide how to proceed.

I've never considered myself a fan of the romance genre; however, I was encouraged by a friend to try one of Hoover's books on audio, when I was having an especially tough time finding engaging material for long runs and my boring work commute. Her writing is worth all the hype, and I can certainly understand now why her fan base is as incredible as it is!

Without spoiling any of the good stuff, I'll just say that this story really resonated with me; my husband and I have certainly been through some challenges that, I would venture to guess, have not plagued most couples during their first ten years of marriage. Hoover handles this story both carefully and compassionately; I could hardly put it down. For those who may be, or may have been, struggling with infertility, please note that it is a prominent theme in this book; I can only imagine that the way in which the experience of Graham and Quinn unfolds might offer some support in its honesty and relatability.

You can love someone with every fibre of your being, but it doesn’t mean you’re happy. Love doesn’t always equal happiness. The issues and struggles that the couple are facing and dealing with in All Your Perfects are heavy on the heart, but they are real. Hoover’s story sucked me in and gripped my heart from the first page to the very last.

Each chapter alternates between ‘Now’ and ‘Then,’ and I thought that this was a great way to tell Quinn and Graham’s story. It kept me engaged. The story begins ‘Then,’ the first day they spend together. Even under the unfortunate circumstances, they just clicked, and from that point forward it was clear that their connection ran deep. With each chapter from the past, we get to see how these two characters fell deeply in love.

As we journey into the ‘Now’ we learn how far apart Quinn and Graham have become. Their pain simply broke my heart; I felt it. Hoover did an excellent job developing her characters and their feelings. Quinn and Graham’s story was overflowing with raw emotion. Both characters had their own insecurities and worries, and it was clear that their marriage was at its breaking point. Life didn’t follow the path they had planned and the question they soon had to face was- will this be enough, is it possible to find happiness again?

All Your Perfects was a sad, yet beautiful and hopeful story. It had my emotions all over the place, I even shed a few tears- which is a rarity, as in, happens next to never. Hoover’s novel was a moving read and I won’t soon forget it.

I absolutely love everything that Colleen Hoover writes. She brings out every single emotion with every book she writes. All Your Perfects is about a couple that have a deep love for one another but issues in their marriage cause them to question not their love for one another but whether they should remain a couple or not. Quinn and Graham’s story was quite an emotional rollercoaster right from the very beginning. They meet in a very unconventional way but that doesn’t stop them from having a very deep connection very early on in their relationship. They go through so many ups and downs throughout the book but I was very happy with the way everything turned out. This book shows that no marriage is perfect but with lots of work and deep love for each other anyone can make it work.

“If you only shine a light on your flaws, all your perfects will dim.”

“Our marriage has never been perfect. No marriage is perfect. There were times when she gave up on us. There were even more times when I gave up on us. The secret to our longevity is that we never gave up at the same time.”

This book is told in a dual format with chapters from the past and present which i enjoyed. It does contain some sensitive subject matter so please read with caution. This book is emotional and heartwarming. I loved the connection between Graham and Quinn. The secondary characters added lots of depth to the storyline. I can’t wait to see what CoHo is working on next!!

Colleen Hoover could write a grocery list and I would be the first in line to read it. That is how much I love her words. If Colleen is new to you, I would suggest starting with the Hopeless books or Slammed Series instead of this one, but it is not necessary. There a countless number books where boy meets girl, there is a conflict or two and then they live happily ever after. Sure, I like to read those because it is a nice escape from reality, but that is not how it works in the real world. In All Your Perfects we get to see a more natural, realistic progression in Quinn and Graham’s relationship, from when they met to years into their marriage. Marriage is hard. Like really hard. And I am not even married or an expert on marriage. I don’t even play one on TV. But, I know it’s hard. I did have to wait several days before I wrote this review just to let everything soak in as I wasn’t quite sure what I thought at first. I came to the conclusion that while I have not found myself in the same situations as Quinn and Graham, I think there are so many aspects of their story that people will connect with and apply to their own lives. Not just in your intimate relationships, but with friends, parents, siblings, etc. I listened to the Audible version and really liked it.
There is a good chance tears will be shed and an even better chance that this story will resonate with you for a long time.

If Hoover hadn't made me care about the characters, and if I hadn't known that this book was sold as a romance and presumably had a HEA, I wouldn't have made it to the end. Because when characters cause themselves and others all kinds of tangled trouble BY NOT TELLING EACH OTHER THINGS, I'm usually too annoyed and frustrated to continue. And both Graham and Quinn, especially Quinn, do just that.

But finally, in a roundabout way, they do get around to communicating essential facts to each other (almost entirely thanks to one of them, and I won't say which).

I am going to reveal one fact, because it's disclosed fairly early and because I believe readers who have experience with this problem should know it plays a role:
[spoiler space here]
the couple struggle with infertility. I haven't, other than briefly, had to face that challenge, so I don't know whether the way Hoover deals with it in the end will satisfy or bother those who have.

It may be because Quinn is the POV character that Graham comes across as such an incredible, terrific guy. To some extent, we have to take Graham's word for it that Quinn is incredible and terrific as well.

There has not been a Colleen Hoover book that I have not loved. Every story that comes from this author is emotional and beautifully written. It's like she can see into the heart of every man and woman and tell their stories without ever having been told them herself.

This book was particularly emotional, dealing with a married couple and struggles with infertility. There are things that change a person and turn them into a person that even they do not recognize. Tragedies, struggles, even positive things can change us and those changes have the possibility of lasting forever. It takes a special person to help us look into ourselves and make us see our own truths. I feel like the couple in this book was able to do this for each other...especially Graham.

I love that this book wasn't all flowers and candy and romantic dates. This story told us the ugly side of relationships and how hard it can get sometimes. However, it also shows us how, if the love is true and strong, and if the couple doesn't give up on each other, we can make it through those hard times. The comparison of a relationship to a hurricane "getting through the category 5 moments" was one that really resonated with me.

I recommend this book to anyone who loves Colleen Hoover, you will not be disappointed! I also think any married couple, especially if they've had rough patches, would truly enjoy and benefit from this book.

This book packs a punch. Colleen Hoover books are always emotional but this one was super heavy at times. It is not easy to read about the struggles these two are facing, and that is exacerbated by getting to experience how happy and adorable they were once upon a time.

Quinn and Graham both broke my heart, but both also made me so mad at times for various reasons. Honestly there were moments where I did not like either one of them. But herein lies the beauty of a CoHo book, that never mattered to me, because their flaws make them real and at the end of it all I wanted them to make it so so SO badly. These characters feel so real and it really makes you invested in their story.

I also really enjoyed the way this story was told. Flipping between the then and the now made the story super addicting and helped to cure the heartache. It was nice going back to the then moments when the now got to be a bit too heavy to deal with. I admit I enjoyed the then moments a bit more, but I think that's to be expected. Again though, the happy then moments did make the now hurt much more because you know it wasn't always like this. Which brings me to my next point... communication people! You have to talk about your issues or they never get solved... you can't bottle these things up.

Colleen Hoover delivered once again with All Your Perfects. She knows how to write a book that will hit you right in the feels.

Fantastic! So real. My heart soared with the rightness of their love, broke with the traumas they endured, sympathized with their pain and avoidance, and broke all over again as they saw their marriage falling apart.

Graham is a very special man. And as wonderful as he is, he’s human.

Their love seemed so fated, so deep, that it didn’t seem possible to see it disintegrate. Yet, watching them suffer and not communicate; to protect themselves and one another from pain by avoidance, their love seemed as real as any. Love takes work and the energy these two had to put forth is so much more than many see in such a short time.

Graham. I can’t say enough about this amazing character. He sees so much and he’s a fixer by nature. His insight into their love, their pain, their hope, their actions, gutted me. If only we could all see things how Graham does. But even seeing what he did, he made mistakes. Big ones.

All Your Perfects was an audio read for me and I think the audio experience added so much depth and emotion.

Mistakes. Forgiveness. Declarations and reminders of love. Seeing not the flaws but All Your Perfects. This book is an experience. A beautiful, painful, hopeful, loving experience. An experience not to be missed.

When I think of any books that Colleen Hoover writes I know I'm going to enjoy it and there were books that she has written that really made me cry but All Your Perfects is crying on a different level.

This book is emotional, it's RAW, there are moments that all the feels that you have come out and it makes you emotional exhausted but in a good way. I didn't know if I could get through it but I knew...I knew, I knew, I knew, I knew that she Colleen would break us but put us back together and she did just that.

When you meet Quinn and Graham you have to meet their "rat bastard" significant others in a way that you know your heart will be shattered...I do repeat...RAT BASTARDS!!! Quinn and Graham would not be my pick but I grew to love their relationship but also grew to despise Quinn. I really did not like her and there were times that I wanted her to just go I really wanted her gone. The fight they were in was not just her fight but a fight that she needed Graham but then I was pissed right the hell off with Graham!!! (emotional overload)

When you understand her pain, the guilt, the pressure, the everything your heart strings are pulled everyone. When you see his struggle to keep them together, to be her hero, to show her that things are okay and she is the love of his life it shows a different part of a alpha male. Graham wants his WIFE and that's it. Any perks are great but the love and heartbreak that he feels throughout the book rips you to pieces but then you're whole again. Things start to look up and what we wanted to happen does. Understanding, realization, compassion, trust and many other feelings seep through the crack and the light is so's so clear and refreshing!

Colleen Hoover is a magnificent author and All Your Perfects shows how her mind works!! I must say she's pretty flawless!!

I'm not sure what I can say that hasn't already been said about this book. I LOVED it. I laughed(because it did have it's funny parts). I cried( A -freaking-lot). I was mad at Quinn for not talking to Graham about her feelings more. I was mad at Graham for doing what he did(no spoilers)...but the way he LOVED HER????? O. M. G!!!! The real, heart-stopping, 100% "from his soul" kind of love is what I'm talking about. This story had it all. If felt REAL, and RAW, and it was heartbreaking. I can't say that I didn't wish for a different ending because everyone wants a TRUE happy ending where everything is "perfect". I understand it though....and I think it needed to end the way it did. This story will pull at your heartstrings...some more than others. It's not pretty..but it's real life. I like stories that seem real and I felt like I was going thru the things these characters were going thru. I felt the happiness, then the downward spiral to heartbreak. I'll also mention THIS.......knowing what was in THE BOX almost did me in!! Then...when I finally found out what was in THE BOX...It. Did. Me. In. For the if my wounded heart wasn't already obliterated.........GEEZ!!! With all of that said though....I'll read it again and again--because it was THAT GOOD!!!! I'm not great at reviews but trust me when I say that you'll be glad that you took a chance.

Like everyone else I'll follow the general thought process about going into this blind and not reading any reviews prior to reading the book. Honestly the reviews won't help you fully appreciate this book.
Only reading it will. The blurb covers all you need to know about this book. Madam Hoover always has a few tricks up her sleeve and the woman can still snag you right into her web with the book opening. It did me, both times I read it. The book is told from a then/now viewpoint. For some it may be an issue, for others not so much. There were a couple times I wanted continuity but that was just me, admittedly I flipped ahead to the now chapter and then flipped back to where I left off. Impatient me. This is a character based story, you're looking at two normal people naked, flaws and all, under a microscope. You see Quinn, her struggles, hear her self talk and if you're like me want to bat her in the head a time or two, but you go with it. Graham, same. I actually related a little more to Graham than I did Quinn for my own reasons. I think everyone will see both sides of the coin in this story. I'm going to hold my thoughts on the last part of the book until post publication.
There is nothing new under the sun, but leave it to Colleen Hoover to change that.

*arc from NetGalley and Atria with many thanks for an honest review. *

It has been a while since I have picked up a Colleen Hoover book, not because I do not adore her writing, just my TBR has been crazy lately. But then I started hearing all these things about her latest release, All Your Perfects, and knew I had to squeeze this one in and I am so happy I did. This beautifully written emotional story about a marriage in trouble consumed me in so many ways.

Quinn and Graham love each other very much, that we always know as we read their story. But no marriage is ever perfect and the mistake and secrets of the last few years have finally caught up with them. Not to say their love was not true, it was so much more than just true. But life is messy and sometimes we forget what important and just let things go by is. Again, you have to fight for what you want!

This book touched my heart and soul. This could be anyone’s story. It was so real and heartfelt. Every word touched me. I cried while reading, and yet continued on. There are so many things that happen in this story, in this marriage, but this is life and I could not put this book down. This is a must read book and I cannot recommend it enough, but it is an emotional journey that will leave you drained, but worth every word read and every tear cried.

Happy reading!

“What's the secret to a perfect marriage?'
'Our marriage hasn't been perfect. No marriage is perfect. There were times when she gave up on us. There were even more times when I gave up on us. The secret to our longevity is that we never gave up at the same time.”

My niece read this book and loved it so much that she got it for me for my birthday! I took approximately 12 hours to read it from start to finish. I went thru alot of emotions reading this one. As a married woman of many years, this one really touched my heart. I felt for Quinn.. she's such a giving person and doesn't ask for much. The one thing she wants, she just can't have. The results are that Quinn and Graham struggle and their marriage suffers because of it. It's so heartbreaking and at times, Quinn kind of annoyed me. I understand her reasoning for her heartbreak but it annoyed me because it seemed to last for awhile thru the book. I stuck thru the story though and came out amazed by the resolution! Graham is otherworldly and I can only hope that my husband can and will love me like he does for Quinn. "I love you more now then I have before"... This one made me laugh and cry and in the end, smile happily ! Such a great book and a definite recommendation!

Colleen has done it again...completely side-swiped me into a balling, snotty mess...and then wrapped me in a hug all at one.

All Your Perfects was a complete surprise to me. And within the first couple of chapters, I was asking myself if I was up to the read. For Colleen touches on a couple of difficult subjects in this one...infertility and marital bliss...or lack there of.

In fact, I warned a friend of mine that was eager to read this one of the touchy subject - a subject that can resonate deeply in some who have experienced it first hand.

I, myself, was fortunate that I never had to deal with issues of infertility. I did have problems initially with pregnancy and experienced a miscarriage. But I was successful in overcoming my issues and have a daughter to prove it. But not everyone is as fortunate.

This is a beautiful and heart wrenching story about two characters who are completely in love with each other. But due to circumstances out of their control, they lose site of what's important. A beautiful story and one that ultimately carries a loving reminder of what is important to focus on...the love that you have and trying to remember that feeling.

Keep the tissues within arms reach though...

Oh man, I cried a lot reading this one. And since crying while reading books is a rarity for me, I tend to give 5 stars to those books because a book that can move me in that way is a book worth of my favorites list.

As you may know if you’ve read some of my reviews in the past, Colleen Hoover has always been a hit or miss author for me. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely adore her and think all of her books are well written, but I haven’t really loved all of the books of her I’ve read in the past. Anyways, the ones I’ve loved, like November 9 and It Ends With Us, I’ve really, really loved, and All Your Perfects is definitely one of those.
This was a hard read, not going to lie. But it was so so good. While I can’t completely identify with the main issue the heroine is suffering from, I think anyone that has ever been married can identify with the troubles this couple faced and some of the situations. As always, Colleen’s beautiful writing shines through in a story that will keep you hooked from beginning to end.
I absolutely recommend this book. It will break your heart and then put it back together. This is definitely a 2018 favorite of mine. Can’t wait for whatever Colleen writes next!!

Colleen Hoover never ceases to amaze me with her ability to write subject matters that anyone and everyone can relate to. Whether it is because they are going through it themselves, know someone who is or simply because the characters she creates are so lifelike and real feeling that you can't help but relate and feel for them and want to be a part of their lives.

There is always something that speaks to me in her stories. She has a way of bleeding emotion onto the pages so that you can't help but touch and experience them. And even though some of those emotions tear you up and you feel like you might explode from all the feels by the end, you still want to thank her for putting you through the ringer because somehow, the experience changed you.

All Your Perfects truly touched me. I connected to the story in a way that I didn't even know I could considering I thought I would have nothing in common with it, and yet, once again, CoHo knocked me on my butt and made me feel and think and dream.

Truly a beautiful story about not just surviving but living, falling in love, staying in love, and making it work and most importantly trying to make the most out of those curve balls that life likes to throw us every now and then.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
How do you explain perfect imperfection because that is exactly what All Your Perfects is. It's a heart and gut wrenching story that spins a beautiful and poetic love story. 

"My husband's heart is my saving grace, but his physical touch has become my enemy."

I'm not going to recap what happens because it will spoil the experience with the story. If you've read Hoover before, you know she gives you an experience. ALL THE FEELS ALL THE TIME. 

All Your Perfects is extremely relatable, raw and real. People experience these situations all the time so what I hope anyone in a similar experience gets out of this story is to stay strong, stay true to yourself and love unconditionally. 

Quinn is relatable as a woman and while I have never personally experienced her heartbreak, I felt for her. I felt her pain. And Graham. Oh, Graham. His love for Quinn was devastating beautiful. 

At this point I think I would just end up rambling because at the end of the day, all I want and need to say is that this is perfectly imperfect and a story that I will never forget. Once again, CoHo conjures up every emotion impossible and forces me to experience them. Well done. Top book of the year, by far!

Thank you to Netgally and Atria Books for providing me with advance reader copy.

No matter how many words I use and how lengthy I make this review, I would never be able to fully describe how this book made me feel. You honestly have to read it, to feel it for yourself.

All Your Perfects in nothing short of perfection. It's well written, heartbreaking, very real, emotional, sad, happy, and most of all beautiful, What these characters go through and how they handle the situations that are in, is tragic and agonizing. The pain they feel is torturous. But the love they have for each other is so strong and powerful, that even in the most painful time of their lives, that love brings them back to each other.

"But I promise you I am loving you harder this year than any year that came before it."

"Until then, I will continue to love you more and more with every struggle we face than I loved you when all was perfect."

"I will still always love you. Whether I'm part of your life or not."

Besides the Never Never series, I've read everything Colleen Hoover has written. .Every time I finish a book by this author, I know I have to wait a full year for her next book. Her books just get better and better with every passing year, definitely worth the wait.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Colleen Hoover writes book with issues that every day people can relate to. All Your Perfects is no exception, as it deals with a hard issue that many couples face.

I liked how the chapters alternated between now and then, as it not only gives readers insights into the bad times, but also into the happy times in Graham and Quinn's relationship. Those happy chapters are definitely needed to balance out the darker chapters.

This is not a light read, and at times it's downright depressing. You can't help but feel for both Graham and Quinn, both individually and as a couple. At one point Graham does something that I normally wouldn't approve of, but even I couldn't blame him when he was at his wit's end. They would have been stronger if they faced everything as a couple, but Quinn pushes Graham away time and time again, deciding to go it alone. It puts an incredible strain on their marriage and at times I questioned if they would even be able to come back from it.

If you're looking for an emotional, heart-wrenching story, look no further because Colleen Hoover has delivered it with All Your Perfects.

OMG this book! Colleen Hoover really knows how to rip your heart out & “sometimes” mend it back together again. I went in blind reading All Your Perfects. I had no idea what it was about or what to expect. At first the back & forth from then & now kind of bugged me, but it was necessary to get the idea of the story. I loved how Graham & Quinn met, granted it was a horrible situation but I love how it was handled. I loved the connection between the two. They just seemed to be meant for each other. The path Colleen took these two on was amazingly written. The emotions she was able to pull from me were crazy. She had me loving everything & then she ripped my heart out, tore it into pieces, stomped on those pieces & then somehow mended it back together again. I felt like I couldn’t breathe at times. I wanted to hug them both & tell them it’s going to be ok because it just has to be. I love that Colleen makes me feel that way. Makes me just sink into her stories where the outside world disappears. I always know when I’m reading a Colleen Hoover novel, that I’m not going to be disappointed. That I’m going to be taken away from reality & immersed into a beautiful story, whether it be happy or heartbreaking.

WOW!!! Colleen Hoover blew me away! This book is so much more than a love story. This story is good for those in relationships (or not). In life we all go through struggles that we can easily get consumed with and lose sight of who we are and what matters the most. Sometimes in relationships when one or both are struggling, you may lose sight of each other. You put your focus in the negative so much that you don't look at the positive and you spiral down the dark pits or self destruction. This story take you through that and brings you back out.
Easy to read and follow (I finished this book in a day & half). It is an emotional ride, one couple but 2 stories, it pulls you back and forth with "then" and "now".. the good and the bad, the heart warming and the heart aching.

One thing I would like to add.. and this has nothing to do with the story. I am not a religious person but I did rule out the theory of God being a woman, because if God was a woman, she would have defiantly created more men like Graham in the world. Graham is so perfect, and loves Quinn so unconditionally. He holds their relationship together and when it falls apart he brings it back together.

I couldn't put this book down. Seriously. It was gut-wrenching but I was so invested in Quinn and Graham's story I couldn't stop.

Quinn--she is so real. I was annoyed with her and her inability to see her husband for what he was trying to do for her. But in real-life, we don't always see past our own insecurities or our own issues. And that is who Quinn is, she is real. Real in all aspects of the turmoil, the pain, the guilt, the self-doubt, the unworthiness she felt as a result of her body's inability to give her what she wants most.

Graham--Such an amazing, flawed, loving man. His love for his wife is what saved her and their marriage. Sometimes his goodness was a bit far fetched, and just when I was getting annoyed with how perfect he was, he did something so flawed that I felt he was also such a real character.

I won't share the issue they face as a couple, that's part of the ups and downs of the book. I will share that this portrayal of real marriage, real heartache was everything I didn't know I was missing in all the novels I've read recently.

I have read all of Colleen Hoover's books and this one is by far my favorite. Well done!

You have to be in the right mood to read this book and personally I tried so many times to get there but it wasn't happening for me despite how many times I tried. I thought the beginning was great, we witness a couple fall head over heels in love and then out of love.

The issues I had with All Your Perfects was I couldn't relate to Quinn. I failed to form a connection to the heroine which is important to me as a reader. Many of times I lost interest where I had to skip the "then" portions of their story.

I didn't want to give up especially since my friends mentioned it will be all worth it in the end. Honestly, it was about 70% where I felt something for this couple. Graham in particular made it worth the while. He said he wasn't a writer but with the honestly in his words he proved otherwise.

The best part of the story was the ending. It felt a little rushed compared to how detailed the middle part of the book but in the end I was glad that both Graham and Quinn got to where they needed to be. It was rough for them but they showed that true love could survive anything.

Filled with heartache and so much emotion. WARNING: Chapter 28 will break you, so you will want to be reading it in private. This is the story of a young married couple, who were perfect for each other... but then tragedy happened and she couldn't make herself come back from that. The husband refused to give up even when she had checked out of the marriage long ago. But he's not sure if he will ever be able to bring his wife back to him. I had mixed feelings about her character. While on one hand I sympathized with her and her feelings, on the other, the way she treated him, made me angry at her. He was devoted and basically a saint while trying to keep their marriage in tact. He did make one big mistake which could have been the last straw between them, but even then, he refused to give up. Despite his mistakes, he is the kind of man any women would be lucky to have. It's beautifully written. Reads easily. Written from her POV. Alternates between the past and present, as we see them at their best and worst. It's fairly clean as far as sexual content goes, but there is some emotionally heavy themes.

I'm going to start this review off by saying Colleen Hoover will always be my favorite author. I think I will absolutely love everything she writes. She's a writing God.

As someone who tried to have a second child for over three years, this book really hit home with me. I felt every emotion in this book. I was happy one chapter and depressed the next. I was smiling in one chapter, crying in the next.

I love the format of now and then. You get to see what Quinn and Graham's relationship was like before their years of trying to conceive. You see what stress can really do to two people who are so in love with each other.

I really think this book should be read by any man whose wife isn't able to reproduce. This would give so much insight. I can't even begin to describe the depression you feel when you're unable to get pregnant. This book describes it. PERFECTLY.

I'm not going to give anything else away from this book because I'm going to make you read it. Go to the store and buy this book right now. Go on the store or wherever you purchase books and buy it now. Make sure you have tissues handy.

Colleen Hoover always speaks to my soul and All Your Perfects exceeded my expectations. I don't think I have enough words to express how amazing and extraordinary this book is. As I'm writing this review, my eyes are filled with tears because All Your Perfects is so powerful and I'm overwhelmed with emotion. This is one of the most honest and relatable books I've ever read. Ms. Hoover made sure that every single word and moment is relevant.

All Your Perfects is the story of Graham and Quinn and their profound issues that led to struggles in their marriage. It's so emotional, real, raw and my heart broke for them. Graham and Quinn met in a unconventional way and Ms. Hoover does a fantastic job of demonstrating how their relationship developed, how they fell in love and their trials and tribulations throughout the years. They experience real life issues, romance, heartbreak, devastation and unconditional love.

I cannot stop thinking about All Your Perfects as it will resonate with me for quite sometime. I encourage everyone to read it and it's without a doubt one of the BEST books I've read this year.

I'll be honest and say I was worried about how I would feel about this book even after 50%... I was worried that I wasn't gonna like it as much as some of her previous work.

You really feel the emotions of Graham and Quinn's marriage struggles and it really hit hard. I may not be married or in a relationship, but it did affect my emotions like no one's business! It is a very raw, emotional story about real struggles couples go through. You go through the ringer right along with Graham and Quinn and experience all their emotions. They are struggling to keep their marriage afloat and wondering if it's all worth it in the end... Lord almighty, my heart with this book.

I'm still very conflicted honestly. I would have loved to see more of Graham and Quinn after they came to their decision and to see their life after it. It's definitely an unforgettable book; I won't forget it for a long time. I don't know if it's my FAVORITE CoHo book... I mean, for me it's hard to beat Maybe Someday and Ugly Love - those are my all time favorites. But this is definitely an amazing book. Very real, very raw, very emotional!

Colleen Hoover never disappoints me. She manages to take issues that no one else would want to touch with a ten foot pole) and turn them into something powerful that everyone can relate to in some way. I may not have experienced anything quite like what is dealt with here, but I can take things from it for the future.

Quinn and Graham have always been the perfect couple. They connected instantly. Except now there is something in their life that has come between them, and they can't seem to connect at all anymore. I liked how the story flipped back and forth between the couple's past and present so that readers got a really good sense of the relationship. It made the ending that more powerful.

I was given a review copy by Simon & Schuster Audio for review. ALL YOUR PERFECTS was read by Madeline Maby. I really enjoyed her reading. She did a good job bringing Quinn and their relationship to life. I think audio enhanced my enjoyment of the book.

Overall, I recommend all things Colleen Hoover to readers. ALL YOUR PERFECTS deals with some material that may be sensitive to some readers, but she handles it with grace.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
It goes without saying that Colleen Hoover has an art in delivering heartfelt, emotional reads but this book transcends them all for me.

I can’t say that I relate personally to the struggles the heroine and hero undergo in ALL YOUR PERFECTS, but man, did I feel all those struggles at the core of my being.

Well paced, realistic...real. ALL YOUR PERFECTS depicts a married couple in two timelines that flip flop from chapter to chapter. When Graham and Quinn met (under the worst of circumstances) and fall in love. And ten or so years in the future when life and marriage gets real...real tough.

I’m not going much into depth here because I’m happy I experienced their journey first hand and didn’t get spoiled by their challenges and burdens and how they dealt with them.

Marriage is hard. It’s often harder staying together than not. And CoHo didn’t sugar coat this at all. It’s raw at times and I love the giant heart Graham has especially. That man could love his Quinn like no other. This is emotional but refreshingly different. A new “best of” on my CoHo bookshelf.

ALL YOUR PERFECTS is an honest look at how life and circumstances can change a relationship. Hoover uses Quinn and Graham in the past as well as the present to inform the reader of where they used to be as opposed to where they are now. We get to see them at their best and their worst.

The thing I loved about this book was the candor. It was honest, gritty, and didn't shy away from issues which affect relationships. The way hoover unraveled the story was only made better by the expressiveness in her writing. She brings you down a journey with her characters filled with highs and lows. This is where she shines.

What I was missing was more of the ugly cry moments. I know...I want more emotion from Colleen Hoover? Have I gone mad? Possibly. It could be just me, but I wanted more of the feels and heartbreaking sentiment from the characters. Don't get me wrong, I felt for them both. Their struggles in keeping their marriage together was impactful, but I wanted more.

All in all, this is a good book. I have no doubt that all the CoHorts and Hoover fans are going to love it.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
The only thing I'm ever certain about when reading a CoHo book is that it's going to make me feel, feel something, anything. All Your Perfects did not disappoint. If anything this one made me cry so much more than I anticipated.

Quinn and Graham's love is the kind we all hope to have. Moments filled with laughter and constant loving touches, but it's also littered with the moments we all try to run from. Sometimes in our lives and relationships we get so wrapped up in everything that is wrong and "flawed" that we forget just how lucky we are. It's when we lose sight that we can lose everything.

While the struggles in this book are not ones that I have experienced, I wept for Quinn, I wept for Graham. I found myself so wrapped up in their story that I feverishly sped through the book just to see what would happen. Just to see if their marriage would survive. If their love was enough.

Is love ever enough?

5 stars!!!!!

All Your Perfects is simply PERFECT. This author doesn’t need any introduction. Colleen Hoover’s stories are just poignant, raw, emotional, unforgettable. Told on past and present, Graham and Quinn love story is sweet, fun, and innocent until it is not … I did not expect the emotional rollercoaster going into this book. I cried buckets and completely wrecked, heartbroken from what these two went though. Then there is nothing but feelings of relief and happy tears at the end. The message conveyed by the author is so powerful and profound. It’s marked my heart and will stay with me forever because the struggles these two went through is very heart wrenching, very real, something many of us can relate to. It makes me think twice every time I open my mouth to complaint about something so inconsequential in the big scheme of thing. Embrace all your imperfections, appreciate what you have, don’t lose sight of what most important in life, and love each other a little more during the hardest of time. All Your Perfects is incredibly beautiful and the BEST WOMEN FECTION THIS YEAR.

Quinn and Graham's marriage suffers immensely while dealing with infertility. Can they find their way back to each other?

Quinn and Graham spent their first moments together eating Chinese food and opening this fortune: "If you only shine light on your flaws, all your perfects will dim." They, especially Graham, really took the message to heart and allowed it to guide their relationship.

"Something so perfect could never become a regret." ... or could it?

But once days become months, and months become years, and they are unable to realize their dream of having a baby, will their love for each other be enough? How could such a perfect connection fall into such extreme disrepair? And, what is in the wooden box they are so hesitant to open? Alternating between when they first met and the present, this romantic love story will touch your heart and might even make you rethink your own relationships. I loved it and the end made me sob.

4.5 stars

I loved this book. So much! I loved how it depicted marriage in all its faults... and all its perfects.

Graham and Quinn meet on what should be one of the worst days of each of their lives. They go their separate ways after, but run into each other six months later. They hit it off, and are married within a year. And their marriage seems perfect, but they're both struggling with issues that are preventing them from finding true happiness. They need to find and get back to what is true: that they love each other.

Colleen Hoover did such a heart-wrenching job of portraying marriage; it's not perfect, there are highs, and there are always struggles, and some struggles are too difficult to move past. The writing was, as expected, phenomenal. The characters were well-developed and real. Graham- oh my goodness, he is like perfection personified! And I could identify so well with Quinn and her reactions.

If you've never read a Colleen Hoover book before, this is the perfect book to begin with. I can't wait to reread All Your Perfects!

All Your Perfects tells the story of a couple from the beginning of their relationship and from seven years into their marriage, alternating chapters. It’s was a challenge to read because you are at the beginning, beautiful, unbreakable love, and then the next chapter you are in the middle of unbelievable heart break. By the end chapter 2, I called my friend and asked her to please get the book and read it because I knew this was going to be an experience I was going to need to go through with a friend. Unfortunately she reads way faster than me. She and I had different experiences. Certain things (no spoilers) ruined it for her. I found the grittiness refreshing and I cried at the end. Be warned, this is not a feel good romance. You will get a serious case of the feels. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll be so mad you’ll want to scream, you’ll sigh and your heart will be full of love. I definitely put this in the category of It Ends With Us. I will say, it was touch and go for a while for me, but in the end, it was beautiful.

Saying marriage is hard is an understatement, and there are often times of heartache that are not always easy to survive. Colleen tells the story of a couple deeply in love and trying to survive the biggest crisis of their marriage. Although I personally have never dealt with infertility, it didn't make the story any less relatable and real and heartbreaking. It was like I was right there with Quinn and Graham and felt their pain. That's what Colleen's books do to me every time - they make me feel and imagine myself in the same situation as her characters. I always feel like I'm holding my breathe and bracing myself for the inevitable heartache that I know is coming. But it's such a good heartache, because she has yet to disappoint me in the end. This book opened up my eyes to the pain of infertility and I believe it's a book that could help marriages - it's that powerful.

You don't want to miss this one. Another unique and incredible love story - she's still on her game - and she's proven it once again with All Your Perfects.

Oh my heart took a bit of a punch with this one. The main focus deal with something personal to me, so all the feels Quinn was going through were real to me. Took me back in time for a bit.

My heart was not only breaking for Quinn, but for Graham as well. You can see he is trying to keep his marriage together, you can tell he loves Quinn. It's hard to see the love she has for him as her sole focus was on something else and I kept wondering if all the damage she was doing for her end goal would be worth it in the end if she lost her marriage in the process. How did she think she could get it back to where it was before the spiral if she did zero work to help keep it.

There was a time I truly was pissed at the way the characters went, but was happy to have them come back. The letter portion was so amazingly heart-breakingly good.

I couldn't see how Quinn could overlook what Graham had done so quickly. I know I couldn't, even if my head was so far gone. I just couldn't overlook that.

Beautiful book, well-paced, inside view into someone else's relationship and marriage.

This book goes between 7 years ago and present.  Seven years ago, Graham and Quinn met, started dating, fell in love and got married.  Present day is seven years later and they are having fertility issues that is driving them apart.  I love books that give you an inside look into someone else's relationship or marriage because I do think we all have a story to tell and I also think it's interesting to see what makes other people's marriages tick.  I felt myself getting caught up in their relationship and hoping they would work things out.  I actually got tears in my eyes when they wrote letters to each other...I don't want to say anymore because I don't want to give too much away!

I recommend this book to fans of romance, women's fiction and domestic dramas.  If someone is struggling with fertility issues, I think this book may be a good fit to see how another couple deals with things.
★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆
Spoilers. Spoilers. Spoilers. Spoilers. Don't read if you don't want them!!!!!

I have to start by saying I am actually giving this book a 3.5, not just a 3.
Let me preface my review by saying I have read many of Colleen's books and have loved them. I continue to purchase her writing because she is an author that writes well thought out stories, digs into her characters and gives them life, and she brings about true feelings as she creates a world for us to live in for a little while.
Now for my review. I am a mom currently making my way through life as a grieving mom. Last year my son ended his life so at this point I only like to read feel good books. My friend asked me to read this book along with her so we could discuss it so I rushed into buying it before researching what I was reading. I thought I would be safe. That was not the case here. There are a couple taboo areas I do not read about, suicide and infidelity. Fortunately suicide was not in this but there was infidelity. Reading about Graham kissing another woman ripped me to pieces. To many, this is not a real problem but I understand weathering a "Category 5 storm" as the subjects of this story are as they struggle through the trials of infertility. I understand pain, sorrow, loss of hope. I don't understand this.

The ending of the book, though brought neatly to a close with a love that withstands all trials, did not leave me with a feeling of closure. I did not feel happy. I did not feel sad. I did not feel much of anything actually. This, I think, is quite unusual for the books I have read by Colleen Hoover. Perhaps it is just me in my time of life, probably just my perspective. I'm sure others will love it but to me it was not a love it kind of book. I would not dissuade you from reading it but I would warn you about the kiss so you don't have the heartache I experienced when I read it.

I'm going to make this short and sweet…All Your Perfects is another emotional read from the queen of angst, Colleen Hoover. I really liked it, although, it's not my all new favorite. That's still Maybe, Someday. Genuine characters with genuine real-life issues, a CoHo book never disappoints. I loved the way Quinn and Graham met. It really was a perfect beginning.

I didn't know what to expect when I started reading this book- a friend had recommended the book and I just assumed that it was another regular romance novel, which I totally appreciate. I didn't know that I would read a book about people struggling with infertility while I current am giving myself morning injections getting ready for our very last embryo transfer- meaning if this is it, we will move forward being childless not by choice. So anyone who has read this book can imagine, reading this was a bit like being slapped in the face.

What I can say to anyone is- please read this book. Do I think that the author's depiction of what it is like to live with infertility to be perfectly accurate? No I don't think so. There are a few thing that Quinn does or does not do that does not seem authentic to those of use who have been though 5+ years of infertility treatment. However, I very much appreciate an author taking this super difficult and personal story on in her book. And as I read the reviews, I am very appreciative of this story being told, because although I don't personally identify with all aspects of the story, I do acknowledge that these stories need to be told.

Infertility, for anyone who has experienced it, is a story of, most often, unresolved chronic grief that people do not share and is not acknowledged. When someone dies, there is a definite specific event that is universally acknowledged as something to be grieved. In my experience of infertility, there is a silent scream that the 1 in 8 of us who has experienced infertility is aware of. It's horrible, heartbreaking and unacknowledged often because when we open up to someone, there is often well-intentioned, insensitive condolences and advice. Such as "just relax and it will work out", or "God has a plan", or "have you thought about adoption?" Anyone who has been through infertility has thought about and weighed all possible options and usually there are legitimate and real reasons for decisions that have been made. If this book can help anyone who has not been through infertility understand us, I hope that they are able to be a bit more sensitive and considerate to those of us who have survived the emotional, physical and spiritual trauma of infertility.

I have read other reviews that criticize the overall story of Quinn's reality, which I personally do not agree with. Although I have not personally had the experience of infertility creating a massive divide in my marriage, I can totally imagine how this story is easily fathomable. I have experienced how my own grief about infertility has blinded me to my husband's pain. And I hate it. But it's easy to see how these things can happen.

The aspects of the story that I do not identify with is the idea that Quinn seems ok with celebrating others' pregnancies, which, in my experience of talking to others' who have experienced infertility, is not very accurate. This is the part of the story that made me think that the author had not actually experienced infertility herself. Last year I read 'What Alice Forgot' by Liane Moriarty, and I knew immediate that she had been through infertility. There is no way that someone who had not been through infertility had written that story, and I appreciated the honesty of it. This story did not seem as authentic, however, it did seem written by someone who had a vested interest in the story of infertility and really, really tried to tell a honest story of what it is like, which I appreciate.

So in the end I can just say, please read this book. The story is important. We are out here- silently screaming and crying and no one knows. It's important, at least to me.

I love Colleen Hoover's writing so much. In this particular book I like the way it was a now and then type of story. It keeps the story moving at a good pace. As with most of her novels, this one centers around a very difficult topic and one that could be triggering for many women. I think her books should come with warning labels. I love the male protagonist, he is the sweetest. My only complaint which is probably not one for many others is that there is too much sex. It makes sense in this particular novel due to the story line, but I didn't care for it. I also did not like the cheating that takes place even though it is so very relevant in the beginning. Aside from that I enjoyed it! I love all of her books, even when others tell me they are problematic, I still love them. Colleen Hoover is great at writing characters that are flawed and lovable. She also has a way of tugging at your heartstrings and I love that. I am sad that I am done reading it because I need more.

Of course I really shouldn't even be surprised at this point. It's a COHO story.

A potent story beautifully told. What a magnificent way to shine light on this topic. I loved every page. Every word. Every minute spent reading this was a minute well spent.

The thing about hopes, dreams, plans or goals is that we set them at point A (the beginning) of our lives but who is to say that when we get to point B we can't change our mind or our journey gets rerouted.
At the end of the road it's happiness we want to find.

This story showed me that love matters but in a marriage it's not the only thing that's needed.
Don't avoid a topic. Don't avoid a hard conversation that needs to be had. In any relationship there will be 2 sides of a story even if we can only see one from our vision point. I loved it! ?

This is what I took from this read-
❤ Let's shine light in all our perfects ❤

** spoiler alert **

This is still a coho page turner, her writing style is still fantastic and I still wanted to know the full story and outcome. Firstly it’s Insta Love. But......I just couldn’t relate to how sad Quinn is. Do not get me wrong, I expect her to be devastated maybe even for a few years but the devastation lasted way too many years and it was just too depressing. You are still a complete person with or without children and you don’t forget who you are just because you can’t have one thing. I can see slowly quitting or the dwindling of communication over years but they didn’t seem to have ever communicated once. I felt like she wanted graham to do what he did and was pushing for him to be a bad guy. I almost felt like blaming her but then on the other side I hated Graham for what he did because no excuse is ever good enough for why you cheat. It also seemed completely out of character. He is painted as having such high standards for himself and his relationship and in seeing how they met one another too it was like the author just decided hmm “I need even more sadness and drama for Quinn, I know I’ll have Graham cheat on her”, like huh? No excusing that for me ever! I almost worried she was about to commit suicide a few times too! And once I knew the fertility issues and how extremely morose she was all the time I thought for a while that clearly they had lost a baby or had a still born and there were ashes in the box, that would at least explain her total devastation, but no it was just a box of some letters they wrote to each other containing stuff that if they had just said to each other all along might’ve prevented their sadness over all those years! The epilogue was the best part of the book where they are finally happy being with each other, you know, the way they were before she decided they weren’t enough ~

I got this book on August 4, my daughters birthday but also Colleen’s moms birthday too. While I was getting it signed I was fan girling a bit less this time than the first book signing but yet I said that it’s fun when a new book comes out. She proceeded to say that it was morbid and now after reading this I can understand her saying that. Before this book I would have a really hard time picking my fav lead make that she’s written. But god is Graham just the best! She keeps surprising me with different ways she writes and each is incredible all on its own. I’d go from being happy and smiley one chapter to being devastated in the next. Can’t believe I can get so excited to read a book that’s gonna make me cry. But guess what? I’m gonna look forward to her next book because they just get better and aren’t cookie cutter books that are all the same plot with different names. CoHort for life!!!??

First thing's first: this book broke me. Ripped out my heart, chewed it up with tiny jagged little fangs, and spat it back into my chest cavity in a quivering pile of heart pulp. But then it picked up the dangling threads of my heartstrings and somehow tied it back together. When I realized what this book was going to be about, it took me a bit to make myself keep going. My own wounds are still very raw and the struggle of the couple in this book is all too real for me. But boy was it ever worth it by the time I got to the last sentence. It's a beautiful rollercoaster of emotion, and I highly recommend it.

Now, I will admit, I purposely read the 1, 2 and 3 start reviews before coming here to write my own. Reason being, I wanted to know what it was about this book that caused it to come in at 4.5 stars instead of 5, and see what would be useful in a review for people such as the ones giving those low ratings to read before getting into the book. So here goes.

This book covers subject matter that not everyone can relate to. This is true of many novels, however, in many cases one is able to place themselves in the characters' situations--at least partially--in order to understand their actions and reactions throughout the book. This is NOT necessarily the case with this particular book.

The subject matter deals with something that, if you haven't experienced it, you cannot possibly place yourself in the heroin's shoes no matter how hard you try, or how much you think you understand what she's going through. To people not dealing with what the couple in this book is going through, yes, the heroin may come off as self-absorbed, overly depressed, fake, dishonest, etc. But here's the hard truth: SHE. IS. REAL.

The reactions she has are not ideal, but they are real. The way she thinks at times is not healthy, but it is real. The things she doesn't say and doesn't do cause detrimental consequences, but they're still real. Real people go through this. I, myself, could have written parts of this novel as a diary. The heroin didn't handle some aspects of her life ideally, but how many of us can say we have handled every situation in our lives the way we should have?

What I'm getting at is, don't let the fact that you can't necessarily empathize with every aspect of this book deter you from the fact that the situation depicted is a real life struggle, and maybe reading it will help you become a better friend, acquaintance, or person in general when faced with someone who DOES happen to be dealing with this exact same struggle.

Finally, a fictional story that gets real about a couple of very real subjects. Accurate insights to both infertility and adoption labyrinths, as well as a very real look into the weather-system impact on love and relationships. I loved and hurt with both characters. I laughed out loud at a certain Halloween costume (Ava's, to be clear). And I related very closely to the actual cycle from infertility to possible child free living or adoption. And I squealed at the mention of a young student from Texas and what that might mean one day. Great story.

So frustratingly good. What happens after the wedding? The gap between the HEA and epilogue? Is everything as it seems?

Quinn and Graham meet under unusual circumstances but the connection is undeniable. Graham is unassuming and affable. His most attractive quality is how confident he is in his love for Quinn. Surrounded by this love and complete care, Quinn heals from a bad relationship and is quickly swept away.

I enjoyed the switch between the then and now timelines as they set up each scenario and provide relevant details. Quinn and Graham’s seemingly fulfilling relationship is dissected in many ways. All facets are laid bare, no pain too raw, no emotion too deep to delve into. Hardly anything is glossed over or overblown.

This story balances the rainbows and thunderstorms in a marriage. The issues are not uncommon, neither are the reactions. But the words capture your attention.
★ ★ ★ ★ ☆
Let me start of by saying that this an emotional story that had me asking many questions and at times had me questioning my own relationship. Quinn & Graham met in the most unusual way and ironic enough, that is what brought them together. Though I wasn't sure how it was really going to work out for them yet I was rooting that it would!!

Their story was so realistic, especially when someone is dealing with what they are dealing with because I've gone through something similar. It really hit home and at times I had to put the book down and collect myself before I could continue. So be prepared to laugh, cry, want to slap someone and sigh with happiness because this book brought out so many emotions I didn't know what to do with myself. Kara~4.5 Stars

One of my favorite things Graham usually asks Quinn is "What did I miss while you were sleeping?"

All Your Perfects is the story of Quinn and Graham, two individuals whose paths diverged because of their significant other's indiscretions. Will they be able to hold onto the love they have, despite all of their heartache?

Colleen Hoover usually creates realistic characters that seem to leap off the page, but All Your Perfects did not hit all of the marks for me. The story is not told in a linear fashion, which is part of the problem. It is hard to gain sympathy for the characters when their lives are told in a haphazard way. Although the struggles with infertility seem quite realistic, I just did not buy Quinn's reaction to their issues. All Your Perfects has a great plot and good characters, but the author did not put it all together. The book was a quick read, but I would recommend other works of the author before this one.

Where do I start with my review on this book? I connected with it in so many ways. I’ve been married for almost 18 years to my husband and there have definitely been times that one of us have felt like giving up.because let’s face it, marriage isn’t always easy. We have not struggled with infertility like Quinn and Graham but I have 2 very close friends who have. I felt like this book was extremely relatable and finally more of an adult read. I completely devoured this book while on a flight from Cincinnati to Denver for Book Bonanza. I wish that I could read it all over for the first time. I have since purchased the kindle version for my one friend who’s experienced one miscarriage and the paperback for my other friend who’s experience multiple miscarriages. This is a heavy topic that needs to be shared within a storyline. Thank you for doing that Colleen. Quinn was not always my favorite character in the book because I felt like she was very closed off and sometimes only thought of herself and how she felt instead of including Graham’s feelings..however I’m sure that this happens to some couples that struggle with these issues. That being said I can’t rave enough about this book! Go grab a copy right now!

Ms. Hoover definitely knows her way around angst sadness and triumph. I love that Ms. Hoover who is known for writing about new love writes a book about a couple. Quinn and Graham met under the weirdest circumstances. They both found out their significant others were having an affair. Quinn was rocked to the core since this man was to be her husband. Fast forward months late Quinn and Graham meet up by fate and realize there's a connection amongst them. The book is told in then and now and explain why they are in the predicament they are now in marriage in perils. Ms. Hoover has crafted the perfect amount of anguish turmoil angst heartache and triumph anyone could muster and gives a believable epilogue about when life spits its you out how this couple come back from the brink of ruin to see why they love each other before the chaos.

I wasn't sure how I felt about this book when I first started it...maybe because I could relate a little too much to it. Marriage is hard and there are so many ups and downs and I feel that Colleen absolutely nailed that in this book and did it in an incredibly realistic way. I could feel Quinn's pain as well as Graham's frustrations. I found as the book went on and for sure by the time I finished that I really did enjoy this story and all the frustrations and sadness as well as happiness that came with it. Quinn and Graham are such realistic characters with a story to tell about their marriage and how one "flaw" or "imperfection" in their life can lead to such heartbreak and devastation for one and not necessarily for the other and how shutting out the other one can cause even more problems.

Wow, just wow. This is one of very few authors that I get their book & don’t care what it’s about because I know I’ll love it. Colleen’s writing is just FREAKING SUPERIOR.

“I didn’t know his sadness consumed him even more than it used to. I probably didn’t notice because sadness is like a spiderweb. You don’t see it until you’re caught up in it, and then you have to claw at yourself to try to break free.”

“But right now, our house is silent. And that silence between us is so loud; I don’t think I’ll ever be able to fall asleep.”

“Gratitude is born in the struggle.”

I love the analogy of category 5 moments and I love the fortune in the cookie.

Another 5 star, amazing, heartbreaking, bittersweet, fan-freaking-tastic book!!!!

All I can think of to say right now is WOW. This is such a different story from anything Colleen Hoover has written before and I absolutely loved it. So much emotional angst and turmoil. I loved that she wrote about a married couple, and this story felt so real. Even if you don’t struggle with the issues Quinn and Graham had, you can still relate to the difficulties of marriage.

This book was told in past and present tense. I don’t usually like reading flashbacks but I loved the format in this book. Maybe because we started in the past? I’m not sure but whatever the reason, it worked. I had emotional whiplash reading the fun, quirky past and then jumping to the current heartbreaking story.

Absolutely loved this one, and by far one of the best books Colleen has written!

Within the pages of this beautifully crafted book you will find an absorbing story line riddled with gut-wrenching emotion, blinding passion, and unimaginable loss. It gives you an honest glimpse into a relationship starting from the beginning when things are blissful; to the ugly moments when it's hard to see things working out; to the moment where you wonder if it's worth holding onto. Once I cracked the cover on this one, met these endearing characters, I just could not leave them until their journey was complete. They had me near tears one moment, and smiling the next; it was one heck of a roller-coaster ride, and I have to say I enjoyed every thrilling minute of it! Highly recommend, this once is certain to leave a dent in your heart, and a smile on your face!

As with all Colleen Hoover books, I was blown away. In the beginning of the book I experienced anger toward the exes for Quinn and Graham. Next, I felt happiness for them with the way things progressed after the debacle with the exes. For most of the book I felt sadness and disappointment for them. I have to admit that the sadness and depression radiating from Quinn was hard to read. Graham to me was one of the Most selfless, compassionate, caring and lovable man I have ever come across in a book. His love knew no boundaries. He existed to love and care for Quinn. I also liked that Colleen Hoover didn’t play it safe and take them down the obvious path to a perfect ending. It was almost perfect, but not by doing the obvious. Beautiful!

This story Broke My Heart. I cried so much while reading this story. It is told in then and now, alternating chapters. I was struggling to get through the difficult emotions. Quinn and Graham meet in a difficult situation, outside the door of their cheating partners. The story takes the reader on a difficult and painful journey of their lives. I was considering not finishing it because it was heart breaking to see these two not communicate and hurt each other. I felt the pain in my mind and in my heart, I am thankful I finished. I do not want to give any spoilers, I am relieved for the Happy ending, and I loved the epilogue!
Great characters and well written. I think this book should come with a box of Kleenex!

Cover to cover, I read "All Your Perfects" by Colleen Hoover today in one sitting. I was blown away! What an intense emotional roller coaster ride! We are taken from the past (when Quinn and Graham meet....and oh what a meeting) until the present, when their marriage is in agonizing shambles. You will feel every ache they feel, long to feel every high they share, and cheer for them even when hope seems to have vanished. This is a profound novel, not to be missed. Have your tissues handy! I LOVED it, despite some grammatical issues, including using "who" when clearly the correct form should have been "whom" (a pet peeve of mine), but the story was so moving that nothing could have marred my feelings about this book.

Oh my gosh. I LOVE CoHo. She’s such an awesome author. She rips my heart out and crushes it, but she does it so beautifully. She breaks me and heals me. I adore how her writing makes me feel so much for the characters.
I’ve never had problems with infertility, thank God. I’ve known many who have and I hurt for them. I have had many hurricanes in my marriage, but so far we’ve not both given up at the same time. I think this book could help some people with relationship problems. I think it shows how important communication is. I love that this book is so full of hope. I love so much about this book. I think I love it more than I do “It Ends With Us”. It is just touching and I think everyone in the world should read it.

This review may contain spoilers.

All Your Perfects was a beautifully written book.

Quinn and Graham's story made my heart ache. I can relate to Quinn. The way she was written was so realistic that it brought tears to my eyes. The kind of devastation that infertility brings is hard to capture in words, but I think Colleen Hoover did a pretty good job.

I did rate All Your Perfects as only four stars, though. The ending was a bit too tidy and a bit less than what I would have expected given what Quinn and Graham had been through.

Trigger warnings: Infertility, miscarriage, grief

I do not give books five star ratings very often. There has to be something about them that really makes me stop and feel something. Of course, I would except nothing less from a Colleen Hoover book. A large part of why I am giving it such a high rating, besides it being amazing, was that the topic was very relatable to my own life at this moment (not everything, but close).

It was easy to understood where Quinn was coming from, and being able to relate to her feelings and thoughts. I cried through a few parts, even. It was heartbreaking for me to read, as she so easily could be me at times.

Overall, this was another great book by Ms. Hoover. It will be going on my Favorites shelf!
★ ★ ★ ★ ☆
I like to go into Colleen Hoover’s books blindly. I don’t read the descriptions or anything, so I literally had no idea what to expect with this book, and I am 100% okay with that.

It did take me awhile to really get into the story. There were certain chapters that hooked me in and kept my attention, but then there were also certain chapters where I felt like it just sort of dragged on. I’m not going to lie, I was slightly worried that I wasn’t going to like this as much as her previous books, but I think that’s because I’ve never personally been in a relationship, so I couldn’t connect with these characters *on that level*, like I normally would. But thankfully once I got halfway through the book, it started getting more interesting and intense.

All Your Perfects gets very real and very emotional. I couldn’t help but feel such sorrow for Quinn and Graham for what they were going through. Although, one of things that irked me about Graham and Quinn was their lack of communication; I just wanted to shake them both and scream "JUST TALK TO EACH OTHER. LET IT OUT ALREADY!!". If they would've just spit it out and said what they needed to say to each other from the beginning, I'm sure they could've avoided most of the drama and insecurity that ensured.

Anyway, All Your Perfects is not my favorite CoHo book (Ugly Love & Maybe Someday forever), but I still thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a beautifully written and heartbreaking story. It honestly hurt my heart reading this book because I’ve never been in any sort of situation that these two were struggling in, so I can’t even begin to imagine the heartbreak that they had to endure. One of the things I would’ve loved to have seen is more of Graham and Quinn’s life after they had come to their decision in the end. Overall, I give All Your Perfects 4 out 5 stars. I can't wait to see what Colleen comes up with next!

I was mad at Colleen when I read this and it took me a long time to calm down emotionally enough to write this. When I first read this I thought how can I give this 5 stars. I’m so mad. (I’m still mad, but ...) I realized that the fact I was so emotionally invested in this story and she had me feeling like I was IN there. She captured the details of a broken down marriage so well that I swear she had cameras in my house and was in my brain. Even though some parts of this book made me insane, I can’t deny the fact it was beautifully written, true to Colleen’s form, and since it has stayed with me so long only means that there is no way I can give it anything less than 5 stars. I won’t get over this any time soon.

I'm not crying, you're crying.

The way this book goes back and forth between the past and present puts me on a rollercoaster of happiness and utter despair. The trouble is, these two have stopped communicating. I mean, there are other problems, one ongoing and one giant mistake. Which, by the way, not that it's EVER okay, but there are always reasons. And anything can be worked through. Anything. As long as that is the goal of BOTH parties.

I know this sounds a little different than my typical reviews but I guess I feel like I just went through this with Graham and Quinn. I feel like I know them. Ok, I guess I am crying. You win.

Ugh stupid feelings. I think this is my second favorite Hoover book, Slammed is my all time favorite. That book made water come outta my peepers too. I was gushing about Graham to my husband on the way to the grocery store this afternoon. I was all, let me tell you about my new favorite man. Just sit there and nod while I tell you all the things that I love about him. I finished this book in the wee hours of the morning and I'm still thinking about it! I don't know, I just really, really, really loved this one. I'm also really excited that she's coming to Michigan!! Ahhh!!! I'm going to try not to piddle myself in excitement!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I’ve been putting off this review because I just didn’t know how to put into words how this book made me feel. I definitely felt every emotion possible while reading it that’s for sure. Mainly, this book broke me into a million pieces and I’m still trying to put them back together almost a month later. I have never gone through what the couple in the book did, but I do close myself off. Reading this book opened my eyes to what it could do to a relationship. It has made me want to better myself with that.

This is an amazing book and it’s heartbreaking and you must have tissues, lots of tissues when you read it.

This book was magnificent! It just delivered all the feels! It felt like I was actually reading two stories in one because of them going back and forth between the past and the present! I loved it! You were able to see how they met and fell in love as a couple, and then also see them as a married couple struggling to maintain their happiness through the hardships that they face! It's so relatable, even if you are not going through the exact problems they are, there is still things that most can relate to in this story! You will cry, you will laugh, you will get frustrated, this book just makes you feel everything and that is the best thing a book can do! Everyone should read this!

I had this on my TBR list for a while and was so excited to actually listen to this one!

This is my first CoHo book and I will be returning for more. All Your Perfects was emotional for me as I can relate to the closed off lack of communication in a marriage. I enjoyed the devotion that Graham displays even though he is not perfect, and hurts her terribly.

Quinn takes an impossible journey of loss, lack of love, emotional avoidance. She has to go through this to see the ending and to see where she and Graham will be!

This story was amazing!

Narrator was perfect!

A perfectly imperfect love story seeped in issues of infidelity, romance, devastation, infertility, hope, and avoidance that have these soul mates questioning if they can be enough for each other.
Hoover’s masterful writing is present, as well as a multi dimensional plot that keeps you wanting more. Her characters are significant and relatable. Quinn is heartbreakingly down to earth and real, while Graham’s truths and soul make you fall in love with who he is.
Excellent survival story, Hoover fans will be cheering with this one

I haven’t sat down and read in a while. Mainly because I’ve been so out of it and haven’t been feeling like myself lately. But that changed the minute I got my hands on “All Your Perfects” by Colleen Hoover. I want to let you all know, that it doesn’t matter if you’re single, married, divorce, separated, having the perfect relationship or the most damaged one, you must read this book.

Y’all remember how we felt when we finished reading “It Ends With Us”? Well multiply that feeling by a hundred or more. 
We have this young couple who are trying by all means necessary to hold on to a marriage that’s on the verge of crumbling if not flat out collapsing. They go through the hardest test any couple can withstand. And it makes you wonder about your own mistakes, doubts and insecurities. This book is the perfect example of why communicating with your significant other is CRUCIAL.

Be it good or bad, it shows us we have to communicate. It shows us both sides of marriage, the good perfect full of love side and the dark full or resentment and sadness side. I called this book “devastatingly beautiful” I cried with almost every chapter. And trust me when I say calling it a page turner is an understatement. 
I want to be completely honest here and saying I was a bit on edge about this book, personally I didn’t like her last work and I was having very high hopes for this one and I was not disappointed at all. If anything, it exceeded my expectations. 

This book was very fast paced, filled with good whole-hearted moments, happiness, love, heartbreak, depression, devastation, failures, and everything else that makes a marriage move forward.

When I say they went through the hardest test, I really meant it. How far are you willing to go to not hurt the person you love? How much of yourself are you willing to sacrifice for the other’s happiness? But most importantly how much emotional damage can we withstand before we break? These were all the questions that were basically laid out throughout the book.

One thing that really caught my attention was the way the book was written. It was very reminiscent of Ugly Love, with the before and present chapters. It gives us a glimpse of what it used to be and then BAM! heartbreak. We get love and happiness in one chapter and then BAM! More heartbreak. The chapters are divided into “Then” which are the ones where everything is all fine and dandy and “Now” which is where all the heartbreak happens. 

I related so much to many of the things that were said and done, or better yet, things that weren’t said and weren’t done. I’ll explain myself a bit better, me and my boyfriend have been going through a small rough patch where we don’t talk about how we’re feeling and how we want to work on it. It led to us being moody at each other and sometimes irritating one another. While reading this book I looked at him when I was almost done and grabbed his foot, which was the closest body part to me, and I just grabbed it and told him “I love you.” And it took everything in me to not cry and break down right there and then.

When a book does this to you and when you relate to what you’re reading, that’s when you know the author is great at what they do. 
So please, go out, buy this book, and read it.

Read it like if your life depended on it. Read it if you ever felt like you weren’t good enough. Read it if you ever felt like you’re on the verge of giving up. If you have a husband, spouse or if you’re living with your significant other, even if you’re not going through a rough patch, tell them you love them. How you’re feeling and everything else in between. Don’t ever left silence be the protagonist of your relationships or marriages. 

I’ll leave you some of my favorite quotes from the book, I hope you love them as much as I did.

"When you meet someone who is good for you, they won't fill you with insecurities by focusing on your flaws. They'll fill you with inspiration, because they'll focus on all the best parts of you."

“I love you more in this moment than any moment that has come before it.”

“What's the secret to a perfect marriage?'
'Our marriage hasn't been perfect. No marriage is perfect. There were times when she gave up on us. There were even more times when I gave up on us. The secret to our longevity is that we never gave up at the same time.”

And of course,

“If you only shine light on your flaws, all your perfects will dim.”

Colleen, if you ever get to read this review, Thank you. Thank you for Graham. Thank you for Quinn. Thank you for this gem that was “All Your Perfects”

Her books are so devastatingly good. This one is a look at one of the many ways a marriage can fall apart while the couple still loves each other. There are many things that can fracture a relationship and infertility is certainly one. Seeing the past and the present fit this couple was such an interesting juxtaposition.
There were many times that my eyes filled with tears because love is hard. These two got caught in their own grief and didn’t know how to share it without hurting one another. It was heartbreaking to witness them dancing around one another instead of talking.
★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆
To start, I would like to say that I went in this book blind. I had no idea what it was about. I didn't even read the blurb. I bought it because it's Colleen Hoover and I love everything she writes.
I liked All You Perfects because the emotions were real and so was the plot. I enjoyed the writing. I enjoyed the story. This author is talented, she writes amazing books.

Unfortunately for me, this time, I just didn't click with the main characters. The heroine irritated me and I just knew what was coming before it happened... And in the end, I felt more for Graham than I did for Quinn.

Maybe it's because I couldn't relate...but I kept telling myself that if he was half the man she described him to be, she should have been able to talk to him.
But then we wouldn't have had the book, so I completely understand. ?

MY SPOILER FREE review of All Your Perfects. If you haven't read this yet do yourself a favor and DO IT...

"If you only shine light on all of your flaws, all your perfects will dim." -All Your Perfects

This is the first that I've read of Colleen Hoover's work. I heard so much hype and excitement for her stories that I was anxious to read it. I don't normally read romance. My genre is Horror, Thriller, Fantasy. So I wasn't really sure what to expect and if I was going to enjoy it or not. I am happy to admit that I was not disappointed. The story was equally beautiful as it was heartbreaking! I rated this book 5 stars because not only do I not regret reading it and giving this new author (to me) a try I would absolutely read it again. And I will most definitely recommend it to other looking for a real life struggling romance between two people that are as normal and real as they get. I hope that I have done enough to convince even just a small handful of others to give it a couple days of their time. You will not be disappointed!

As a reader we like to escape to other universe where billionaires exist by the dozen and someone like me can catch one, where hot vamps exist and tale us away to an adventure or we can ride behind of a hot MC bike towards the sunset and the sex But once I a while we find a boom that speaks to us, that we can identify, that even thought it's fiction and the opinion of someone else it has real life issues that a lot of us are facing and even though these are fictional characters you know that out there amongst her readers is someone who's going through the same.

I have never hated a character more in a book than Quinn. I purchased the audible version of this story and I found myself yelling at an imaginary character in my car...sitting by myself. I did not care for the depressive nature of this book. I love to read to get away from reality and sadness and this book was just too depressing. I gave it 3 stars because even though I didn’t care for it, it was beautifully written and did have good depth. Plus, it’s a Colleen Hoover book and well, even though I was not a fan of this book, she is still my favorite author
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
So, I just finished this book and it touched me in SO many ways. If you are someone who suffers from infertility (as I do), this is such a heartwarming book. It’s about the heartache, blame, struggles, depression, and stress on a marriage that comes with suffering from such a disease. Nobody likes to talk about it, but there are many that suffer from it. I related to the main character, Quinn, in SO many ways. Many of her thoughts were my thoughts, her doubts were my doubts. CH is one of my favorite authors, and I highly recommend this book.

Once again Colleen creates a world that pulls you in. With characters you can’t help but feel every ounce joy and pain. Quinn and Graham met under the most devastating of circumstances but that one day led them to the loves of their lives. They are faced with the most damaging and hurtful of circumstances though while one continues to put up facade and hoping the other doesn’t notice it creates a wall between. Soon they both become someone that neither of them recognizes. This story is full of painful, heartbreaking, soul crushing regret, and love.

Oh my gosh! This book was incredible! Every book by Colleen Rios your heart out and then before the book ends, She has given your heart back and you feel blessed that you had the opportunity to read one of her books! Every book by Colleen is a page turner, She keeps you guessing and you better have many Kleenex near by. The love letters in this book were wonderful! I cried because I knew Quinn was finally realizing how much her husband loved her and the pain he was going through. Thank you for an incredible book!

This story made my heart hurt. The love Graham and Quinn have for one another, slipping away day by day due to uncontrollable circumstances. It makes you reevaluate your own relationships and if you too have changed due to life events. If you are really putting in a 100% or if you are only shining light on flaws.

Beautifully written, this book may be my new favorite by Colleen Hoover. You connect with these characters and almost beg for them to succeed, to get through this storm. Loved every single page. 5+++ stars!

One of the things I love about Colleen Hover's writing is that in each novel she explores a different issue and consequently makes me think at a deeper level. This novel is no exception. It is the story of Quinn and Graham, a couple who meet in an usual way and find love. But.... is love enough? The book alternates chapters between their past when they first meet and fall for each other to chapters in their present where their marriage is on the brink of ruin despite their love. At the heart of their issues is Quinn's inability to conceive and her struggles with monthly disappointment and how that impacts their lives. Both Quinn and her husband make mistakes and both strive to understand each other but sometimes it's just not possible in that moment. The character of Graham is well written and truly swoon worthy. He fights with all he's got to keep Quinn's love even when at times he is a bit clueless to her struggles. There is a great deal of humor in this novel which lightens the mood considerably at times. I enjoyed Quinn's relationships with the secondary characters such as her sister and mother. At first, I worried that her mom was too one dimensional but at the end of the day her mom's brutal honesty with Quinn saved her character by giving her more depth. I highly recommend this novel but be prepared to sit down for the long haul because it's hard to put down.

I wasn’t sure what I was expecting in this book, but it wasn’t what I got: It made me so emotional! I’m not an avid romance reader, but this book read as more drama than romance. Quinn and Graham meet and fall madly in love. Their marriage, like all marriages, can’t be perfect all the time, and their marriage suffers some serious category 5 style issues. They, in different ways and for different reasons, begin to question if it’s worth continuing.

Seriously: I get why Quinn fell for him. I fell for Graham like I fell for Mr. Darcy: he’s that freaking swoon-worthy. For instance: “But, I recently concluded that there’s no other explanation for how you and I could end up on the same planet, in the same species, in the same century, in the same country, in the same state, in the same town, in the same hallway, in front of the same door for the same reason at the exact time. If God didn’t believe in me, then I’d have to believe you were just a coincidence. And you being a coincidence in my life is a lot harder for me to fathom than the mere existence of a higher power.” ARE YOU SERIOUS?! Or how about when he said, “When you meet someone who is good for you, they won’t fill you with insecurities by focusing on your flaws. They’ll fill you with inspiration, because they’ll focus on all the best parts of you.”

I also loved the title. Our culture adores perfection. We strive for it. But what is really perfect? How do we define it? I won’t quote the passage that explains the title, but oh my goodness is it shockingly profound. It made me think about marriage, relationships, careers, parenthood, wow. I finished the book thinking, man, my life isn’t perfect, but there sure are a lot of perfect things in it!

This was such a quick read, and I was shocked at how profound it was! I recommend! Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.

Colleen Hoover never ceases to amaze me, and with Madeleine Maby as the narrator you get incredible. This book is a roller coaster of emotions. From the first time Quinn and Graham meet on that fateful day, when Quinn resigns herself to the inevitable and realizes that she can’t fulfill her dreams, and when Graham makes her see that there happiness, love and future doesn’t hinge on what could have been, it’s what could be.
When you read or listen to this story be sure to have tissues handy. Fair warning.

I read a lot of books, but I never really review them, so I don't exactly know how this works, but I just finished All Your Perfects 5 minutes ago and I felt the urge to write something about it. I mean, it's Colleen Hoover we're talking about. She bought me dinner and drove me around in her Tesla last year, so the least I could do is write a review about her newest release, right?

I've read a lot of reviews about this book. About all of Colleen's books actually. One of the things I read most often is that she has a way of shattering you throughout the book and putting you back together before the story ends. The second most often I read how people can relate to her books on a personal level. I think it's so great how significant these stories are for other people. How it helps them to feel understood or to get through a rough time. It's beautiful.

Like I mentioned before, I love reading books. I never relate to any of the stories though. I consider it to be a good thing; I've just been leading a very normal life so far. Sure, there have been ups and downs, but no devastating events from the past that still haunt me. Probably the worst thing that happened to me was when I broke my collar bone and I had to learn to wipe off after I went to the bathroom with my other hand. It seemed impossible the first few times I tried, so I was just sitting on the toilet crying, unable to take care of my own basic needs. Seriously, it's really weird to wipe off with your other hand. You should try. It tooks me a few weeks, but I learned how to do it. Sometimes I still try it, just to see if I can.

Okay, let's get back to the book. I loved it. I love how Colleen can write about something so mundane and make it interesting. How she makes it seem like she only writes the words that are absolutely necessary and nothing more. I love how she always puts these little quirky things and moments into her stories. I think that the little keepsakes she creates in her books is what makes her special, what keeps her connected to her readers in between books. That and the fact that she's always posting stuff on Facebook.

It felt like I was holding my breath the whole time I was reading this book, without knowing what I was waiting for. But towards the end of the story a sentence said by Graham, which had been repeated many times throughout the book, suddenly held a different meaning. And for me, that line was exactly where this whole book was about. You cannot always go back to who you once were, but you can always begin again and start something new.

I'll admit it: I read the last few chapters with tears in my eyes. All Your Perfects is one of those books everyone, no matter your age or gender, should read. I know it's fiction, but it's also just life itself. I think it will teach you something and I think it will teach everyone something else.
All Your Perfects is a book I will probably get back to later in life for more lessons, but right now as I'm typing this after another failed attempt at a relationship and with my dog's head in my lap, I realize that adopting a dog always fixes at least half of your problems.

Thank you for this honest story, Colleen.

I have a huge love/hate relationship with CoHo's books and this book is the perfect example of why. All Your Perfects is a beautiful story that was completely unexpected. There's not a lot that can be said about this book that wouldn't completely spoil it. It will make you laugh and it will definitely make you cry but more than anything, it will make you believe that even in the worst of times, happiness can be found. If I could give this book more than 5 stars, I absolutely would!!

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!!

Colleen Hoover has done it again with All Your Perfects.

This story had me all in my feels from the very beginning. Graham and Quinn meet during a difficult time but you can tell there was an instant attraction. Within time a relationship develops and they are both young, in love, carefree and can’t wait to spend the rest of their lives together. I loved the fact that this book was written in past and present so you could see the how the relationship develops and slowly destructs as well.

“Isn’t that what I wanted, though? For him to stop fighting so hard for something that will only bring him more misery?”

“We’re all full of flaws. Hundreds of them. They’re like tiny holes all over our skin. And like your fortune said, sometimes we shine too much light on our own flaws. But there are some people who try to ignore their own flaws by shining light on other people’s to the point that the other person’s flaws become their only focus.’’

I’m not married but this book taught me a lot about relationships and marriage. How two people enter a marriage with the best of intentions and even though they love each other, love isn’t always enough. Sometimes loving someone means possibly letting them go. I pretty much devoured this book in 24 hours. I HAD to see how everything with Graham and Quinn would unfold. This was a tough book to read at times because you could feel the characters pain. I was so sympathetic for Graham and Quinn as they were both suffering silently in different ways. THis story was an emotional roller coaster and the last few chapters DID ME IN as I read. Make sure you have tissues handy.

I loved how this book touched on certain topics that are sensitive for women as well. There are so many expectations that are placed on women and I loved how this book handle the topic. A woman can be anything she wants, wife, mother, housewife, ceo, world traveler. We are more than just our reproductive system but enough with the PSA.

Long time fans of Hoover will definitely enjoy this story. The story was passionate, realistic and poignant. The words just flowed and it will be a story that I won’t forget anytime soon. This has become my second favorite book after “Hopeless”. It gave me all the old school feels that I love and I highly recommend that everyone read this book!

This book was extremely hard to read. Not because it was bad, because Colleen Hoover is a master at her craft. This book was hard for me, because I'm dealing SPOILER.......

with infertility. This whole book is about Quinn's inability to have a child and Grahams unfailing love her. It broke my heart, because her whole world is about having something she may never have and I can understand that. It made me cry, it made me angry, it made me see my husband differently. This book was a wonderfully, brutally honest betrayal of what infertility does and how marriage isnt always easy. I would recommend this book over and over again.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I had the honor of meeting Colleen Hoover at one of her book signing events in my state and purchased a signed copy of All Your Perfects.

As an author and reader, for me to invest in the couple I'm either writing or reading about, I want to know they have a strong foundation. It's important to me that it's not only sex that the couple have in common. I'd find it hard to believe that a couple can make it through the trials in their marriage if they don't have other things in common. So often I think couples feel lonely when they are together but try to show others that everything is perfect. And when the storms in marriage hit, they aren't strong enough to make their marriages last. Everything crumbles because it wasn't built to last in the first place.

I've always been told to make the couple earn their happily ever after. Will these two ever reach a happily ever after? Readers will have to see for themselves if Graham and Quinn have a strong enough marriage to deal with all the trials they are put through. They are, as I know from firsthand experience, put through one of the hardest issues to cope with as a couple, and have to deal with the changing shape of their future. Will they survive when Plan A becomes Plan B, then C, and D...? We wonder as we read if what held them together in the beginning will be enough to keep them together.

"I miss the taste of him, the smell of him, the sound of him. I miss when he would be on top of me, so consumed by me that it felt like he might tear through my chest just so he could be face-to-face with my heart while we made love."

Colleen Hoover always delivers a spectacular read and most of the time I go into her stories blind. Having not read the synopsis because I already know I'm going to love it. And All Your Perfects was no different. One page in, I knew this book was going to have me hooked. I almost find it hard to describe how much I adored this book.

All Your Perfects follows the story of Quinn and Graham. They meet under the worst circumstances but out of that awful day, they grew a friendship. A friendship that quickly turned into a romance. That neither of them were ready for. A love that will have their heads spinning and their hearts pounding. Graham knew they were destined to be together forever. But life has other plans for them.

Their lives were perfect until they weren't. They knew their marriage was falling apart but they refused to acknowledge it. Not wanting their marriage to be over, they push aside their problems and simply live together. Roommates. But they know they can't do that anymore. They need to face their problems head on and figure out if their love is worth saving.

Reading this book...reminded me why I love reading. Books like this make my fangirl heart thrive. I couldn't put this book down. I didn't want it to end but I couldn't read it fast enough either. Hoover is at her finest in All Your Perfects. She packs a powerful punch with her message about love, life, marriage, and sacrifice.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Quinn and Graham had a perfect love and a perfect marriage, but somewhere along the way they fell apart. The one thing they want is the thing that is driving them in separate directions, and they may just be too far away to find each other again.

They met during a challenging period for both of them. The immediate camaraderie they felt was not diminished with time or space as Quinn suspected might happen. I loved the pacing of everything following their meeting -- it set things up for me so I felt comfortable in the love that they claimed to feel even as their marriage fell apart. Because without that solid foundation, the struggles they face later on would not mean as much.

This was a raw and emotional journey from the beginning. Watching as their relationship simultaneously developed and fell apart was heartbreaking and was the driving force behind the depth of hope and pain that cycled through the book. I found myself feeling disappointment towards the characters’ actions and non-actions, but held on to hope that they could build back my feelings and their own. Had this story been told in any other method it would not have held the same emotional power as this one does.

I finished this thinking, once again, this is my favorite Colleen Hoover. I’m pretty sure I’ve said that with her last three releases, but I just love each new story she creates. This one was not easy to read, but was such a stark look at a marriage in jeopardy that I couldn’t look away!

I love all the little details that only Colleen’s imagination could come up with. Like how they met, how the reconnected, the wooden box, fortune cookies etc. Trying not to give anything away. I sometimes skip over things in books, love scenes that are too long, descriptions of people or discriptions of the scenes that are over the top. With her books, I read every word because I like her imagination and all the tiny details that equate to perfection. True talent!

“If you only shine light on your flaws, all your perfects will dim”
I loved this. It’s a beautiful and emotional story about the complexities of marriage and infertility. The ‘then’ chapters were absolutely swoon worthy, the stuff great romance tales are made of. The ‘now’ chapters are what happens after the HEA, when real life happens, and things get hard. I thought they balanced each other out nicely, the sweet and the sad.

Colleen Hoover is one of my favorite writers, and this may be her best book yet.

Infertility is the issue that is causing a major rift in Quinn and Graham’s marriage. Sex has become a means to an end and when that end doesn’t result in pregnancy, month after month, Quinn sinks further and further into depression. Hoover handles this tough topic with grace and sensitivity.

Graham tries to be supportive but he hides his fears in hopes of protecting her. That doesn’t work and we watch as this marriage inevitably starts unraveling. It is a heartbreaking journey.

The book moves back and forth through time so we get to watch Quinn and Graham falling in love while simultaneously watching them fall apart. It was a difficult read at times, as the pain of infertility hit pretty close to home for me, but nevertheless, I couldn’t put it down.

Hoover has a way of drawing the reader in and making us care about her characters, even when it is painful to do so. By alternating the darkness of a marriage on the rocks with the light of falling in love, she makes us think about how a relationship goes from one extreme to the other. I never saw this ending coming, and it was a masterful finish to a very thought provoking, emotional read. I loved it.
★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆
This book was depressing. It was slightly more of of a downer than Without Merit. I read for an escape and Hoover’s last two books have been heavy and not enjoyable at all. Her stories are still captivating but I really don’t want to be depressed during my leisure time.

I have immediately purchased and been disappointed with her last 2 books. I loved everything she’s written before that. I’m hoping for a return her roots next release.

Normally, I'm annoyed when communication between two people can easily (or not so easily) clear up misunderstandings. Yet, that's part of the point to this particular story. The journey to revelations and understanding mired in grief and devastation was the beauty of this book wrapped up in a gorgeous love story that was heart wrenching while also heartwarming. Another amazing story by an author who rarely disappoints.

Quinn and Graham are the perfect couple, or so it seems. When all seems well they are falling apart. The life they dreamed to have is falling apart, but when push comes to shove the one thing that can save them is what will save them. They have to go back to the beginning to make it through where they are.
This book is an emotional roller coaster, It will bring you to tears, yet it is an incredible read.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I really just want to spoil this book for everyone who has read her books. People who just come across this book would never understand the complete torture this women put us through. And at the very very end you get a glimpse of hope. I feel sorry for anyone that hasn’t read all of her books and reads this. You will never understand the genius this woman is. How grateful I am when she pulls me into theses worlds she creates. It’s an amazing gift she has, that she shares with all of us! So this is just my thank you to her for the hours of happiness,sadness,anger,disbelief along with laughing and the river or tears that come along with every book she writes. READ THIS BOOK, READ ALL OF COLLEEN HOOVER’S BOOKS! You will not be sorry.....

Colleen’s ability to make you invest in her characters is unparalleled. My stomach physically hurts from reading this book and feeling all of the emotions. Reading about a marriage crumbling while simultaneously reading about it blossom is exhausting! The story was perfectly paced, the feelings were raw, the characters were flawless, the topics all to real, and it all makes you fall deeper in love with Colleen Hoover ;) Thank you for another experience!

This was such a refreshing read for me! The book started or a tad slow for me but very thought provoking. I found Quin and Grahams story so relatable and interesting! So much real life adoration involved! This was definitely a leap from Without Merit. This book contains so much meaning and perspective. Its such a beautiful story with all the feels! Recommended for anyone’s reading and especially all married couples! Fabulous! May be my new favorite! Love love the box idea! Oh and Graham is my new book boyfriend!!! ???‍♀️

One of Colleen Hoover's best books! Made me cry like a baby for the last hour. After It Ends With Us and November 9, I didn't think another book could make me cry so hard, but I was wrong! This was a phenomenal one-sitting read for me and filled me with a million different thoughts and emotions. Loved the intimacy and sensuality, as well as the realistic struggles the main characters went through!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
A heart wrenching and beautiful tale. Quinn and Graham meet under unexpected circumstances and fall madly in love. But life decides to throw painful trials in their path. Their future rests on a small wooden box that contains promises from the past that can possibly heal their present. Colleen Hoover is a magician at drawing the reader into the emotions of her characters. This book is exceptional!

Colleen Hoover is my favorite author for a reason. Her words hit my heart and they never leave. I loved every minute of Quinn and Graham’s story! It’s beautiful and heartbreaking all in one, but it’s always real life. I love a book that I feel...and this book made me feel so many emotions that I was everywhere! Read this book....if you don’t like it, then there’s something wrong with you.....

My favorite CoHo novel to date! I connected with these characters from page one. I went on this journey with several friends and I’m amazed at Hoover’s ability to empathize with difficult subjects. Women and men process this struggle differently and she exposed two beautiful people who faced infertility in their own way. While the subject matter is heavy, Hoovee’s witty banter is weaves throughout.

Colleen’s books always bring out an array of emotions and this one was no exception. I go into reading her books will expectations of living and hating the characters multiple times, doing research on the issue she brings light to and preparing for a book hangover, but it is always so worth it. I’ve been reading her books since Slammed came out, thanks for another amazing journey!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Quinn and Graham’s story in All Your Perfects is Soul wrenchingly beautiful!!!!! Colleen Hoover always knows how to pull your soul out of your body, tear it down, build it back, then replace it. This book touches every part of your heart. I was married before, and this book hit so very close to home of how it was in my other marriage. Thank you, Colleen, from the bottom of my soul!!!!!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
(Spoilers) This book slayed me. So often women struggling with infertility feel as if the world doesn't understand them, and that they are separate from everyone else. Colleen Hoover gave us a voice with this book, and I will forever be thankful. All Your Perfects clearly details the internal struggles women with infertility face, how the world is altered to them, and how difficult it is to put on a strong face (even to your husband). I thought I was reading about myself. I highly recommend this book for those also struggling, and for their families to more clearly understand what long-term infertility does to our insides.

I really enjoyed this book! The relationship between Graham and Quinn seems so real so it made it easier to relate to them. I like that they had their struggles and easy times. So many good quotes from this book too. I loved it! Sucked though because now I miss my husband a ton (truck driver on the road), but it makes me look at some things I may have taken for granted.

Wow! I haven't been on such an emotional roller coaster ride in forever. What a story about Quinn & Graham! They love so much and so hard but there's something else going on. I haven't laughed, and actually sobbed like a baby over a story in quite some time! I couldn't stop reading, I couldn't stop thinking about them, I couldn't put it down! Beautiful, beautiful read!

Happy Release Day to @colleenhoover and All Your Perfects!! I’m so excited to share this absolutely amazing book with you guys today!!
I had the honor of reading ALY last month, and I was completely blown away by it. This story is so important, so real, and ended up changing the way I think as a mother. To have a book impact me so deeply speaks volumes.
All Your Perfects addresses the extremely real and sensitive topic of infertility. Though I can’t say I’ve been in this situation myself, I have known others who have struggled through this. This story addressed this struggle with such grace and realism, I’m honestly at a loss for words.
I can’t recommend this story enough. It’s emotional, hopeful, heartbreaking and inspirational. It will leave you thinking long after you finish reading it. @colleenhoover is a romance queen, and I can’t say it enough: READ THIS BOOK!!

(Thank you to Atria Books for this copy in exchange for an honest review.)

Colleen Hoover left me with all kinds of feelings with the first one I have ever read by her. She started off with a bang that immediately caught my attention, and from there, took me on a magnificent rollercoaster ride, with a perfect ending! Quinn and Graham will keep me warm on a cold winter night, as well as make me have a different kind of perspective on my own marriage. I loved.It from start to finish ,and guarantee that I will be reading more of her book. Tremendous job Colleen! Keep doing what you do best!

All your perfects is such an amazing book. It takes you on an emotional rollercoaster. As a woman who has pcos and endometriosis that struggles with infertility this book really hit home. I felt everything Quinn was feeling. I felt like Colleen could have been talking about me at times. I felt every emotion while reading this book. There were times I was crying, times I was laughing, times I wanted to throw my phone and times I had to turn it off and walk away. It is so raw, powerful and heart wrenchingly beautiful. Colleen is such an amazing author. All your Perfects has to be her most emotional book yet and the best book of 2018! You will not regret buying this one. I loved it!

This book will rip your heart out and slowly piece it back together. The extreme struggles that can happen in a marriage can be excruciating. Graham and Quinn are definitely experiencing a huge hurdle in theirs. I loved the "Then" and "Now" chapters. It really helped the progression of their journey. I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.

I rarely write reviews for books, but I felt absolutely compelled to give this book my highest accolades. The characterizations had so much depth. You really felt like you knew these people personally and felt everything they were feeling. I have to say this book is, without a doubt, in my top five of all the books I have read. The worse thing, was when the book ended. I just didn't want to put it down. Colleen Hoover has now become my favorite author. I adore all of her books and really loved "It Ends with Us". However, this book is even better, in my opinion. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.

I loved everything about this book. From the dedication page to the acknowledgments. This book is so raw. It will make you fall in love, tear your heart out, make you bleed and will heal you all at once. I went into this book blind, as I do with all of Colleen's books. I read it in two days, but had to take many breaks to reflect on her words, on my feelings for the circumstances and the hearts of the characters. Colleen, I started really reading books with Fifty Shades of Grey. After I read that series I picked up Slammed and since Slammed I have read all of your books the moment they are released. You never fail to impress me. Thank you for your words.
Much Love to you

Colleen Hoover wrote another fabulous book! It seems she can’t go wrong with anything she fights. She is a master of making you feel every emotion possible. This book is a total emotional rollercoaster. You will definitely want to read this in one sitting! You will laugh, you will cry, you will be angry ... all the feels.

I loved this book. I could connect to it on a personal level in so many ways. I cried, I smiled, I felt old wounds and have looked back and seen how much I have grown. Infertility is something that this book portrays so feel, I felt how she felt, I did some of the things she did. Wow, such an amazing read.

Another beautiful love story from Colleen Hoover. I have read almost all her novels...she's a word smith. This story is about unconditional love, forgiveness and accepting circumstances in life that are being our control. If you have read some of her other novels and liked them you won't be disappointed.

I want to start with I wish I could give a different amount of stars for different reasons. For me this was not what I like to read. I like to read HEA, sweet over the top romance and fake love. Just because I do this doesn't mean I pretend real life doesn't exist. I just don't want to pay to read it. I still enjoyed the writing and the humor that Colleen uses as always. It was the content for me. Just not my thing. Basically if you are like me and read for pleasure and all the juicy fluff we can't always get out of life, Don't read this one.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
An emotional roller coaster!
My heart hurts so much but it's so beautifully written.
This is now my new favorite. I guess it hit close to home- not gonna spoil but on both counts of what this is about. I am fortunate that I had a positive outcome. I read this on the plane- my breath caught so many times and tears fell down my eyes. I knew people were wondering what/why I was reading.
She did not disappoint, an amazing read but also heart breaking. I don't know where she gets this emotion from, but Colleen has an amazing talent.

She never disappoints. Colleen Hoover always writes unique, original stories filled with emotion and beautiful story lines. I loved reading about this couples struggles even though I didn’t deal with infertility, it really shined a light on what so many people go through. Is was brilliant and beautiful.
★ ★ ★ ★ ☆
“The problem is, love and happiness are not concordant. One can exist without the other.”

All Your Perfects is a book that made me feel every emotion in the world. It broke me, and it healed me, and it made me not feel so lonely. I wanted to hug my iPad, and throw my iPad. I wanted to give it five stars, and I wanted to give it one star. I swear, this book made me feel everything. And even though I had problems with some of the content, I still think this book is super important. And the subject matter of this book is something I’ve never read about before, and it’s a topic that we need to be normalizing and start discussing more.

Overall, this was just like all of the rest of Colleen Hoover’s books, whether I love them or hate them, I can’t put them down. I read this in two sittings, mostly while crying my eyes out, but nothing could stop me from flipping the pages. And again, this topic was really close to my heart and something I think about a lot. I implore you all to use caution when picking this book up, but I also implore you all to do so.

“If you only shine light on your flaws, all your perfects will dim.”

I try to be unbiased because Colleen Hoover is one of my favorite authors, but she tugged my hearts strings with this one. I was not much a fan of Without Merit and this book definitely showed me it was only the content of WM I did not like, and nothing to do with Colleen.

I will be reading it again!

This was the first Colleen Hoover book I've read & I love it!! It's usually hard for me to get into books, but this one grabbed me in the first couple pages. I like how she wrote it with alternating chapters-past/present. I was rooting for the couple the whole way through. One of the main characters, Graham, I absolutely fell in love with. He is the man I want in real life. ?

stan pedzick
As all Colleen's books, All Your Perfects is emotional journey of two characters I instantly fell in love with. Quinn and Graham are a married couple going through a rough patch. The book shines light onto some very important topics that are current in modern society.

Colleen switched between chapters sharing their present story with chapters portraying their past. It was very enjoyable and it helped me understand both characters and connect with more deeply. And made me fall in love with them even more.

My favorite part of the story was following the development of each character individually as well as them as a couple. It's one of those book that shows the progress in the character's story. There were parts that kept me on my toes. Other parts made me put it down due to my mind exploding from the emotional load this book carries.

The book was quite inspirational and empowering for me. The story itself is very touching I'd say.

Since I don't want to share any spoilers, I'll end the review here. Just know that this is another 5-star hit by Colleen and she will bring her readers to their knees once again.

Hoover tackles yet another relevant and timely topic. The story of Graham and Quinn is one of marriage and misfortune and how husbands and wives traverse a delicate line. Hoover writes from the heart and that's what truly gets ne every time.

I tried to take this book slowly so I could enjoy Colleen Hoover's latest novel... but thanks to an internet outage, I read the majority of it in 1 day. This story is so inspiring and really makes you think about life and marriage and what's important. Another amazing read- thank you Colleen!

This. Book.
I consumed it all in one sitting which meant it hit my kindle at 10pm I started around 10:30pm and finished right around 2am. This book is raw and beautiful, and intense, it made me feel every single feel because in a sense I am Quinn. Quinn and Graham’s love story isn’t anything you think it will be. It was at 14% into the book that I realized this book would hit home on so many different levels. You will cry, be prepared. I wish I could have given All Your Perfects more then 5 stars because it deserves more then 5. Anytime I think she can’t top any of her books she goes and does it.

This book is amazing. It has taken me 5 days to write this review because I didn’t have the words to explain how this book touched me. I don’t think I still have the words to fully explain how much this means to me. The subject of the book hits so close to home for me. I didn’t know if I could continue on after I realized where it was going, but at the same time I couldn’t put it down I’m glad I didn’t. All I can say thank you, Colleen Hoover for writing this book.

It’s important not to go in to this book thinking it’s your typical romance. There are struggles right from the first chapter. But it is emotional and thought provoking and yes romantic. And it is well worth the read.

Colleen can do wrong and this book just proves it. She writes characters you want to hate but love. She writes emotions that make you empty Kleenex boxes. She writes amazing stories that you love. If you love Colleen, you’ll love this story.

The way that Colleen Hover writes from the position of infertility, trying to conceive, trouble trying to conceive, and a marriage that slowly crumbles, is beyond uncanny. I felt like I was THERE, in it. I broke with them.

Then how she put them back together. And me.

There's a reason that CoHo is known as a master of this genre.

Perfect read!♡ You know how some songs have parental advisory warnings, we need a literary warning for Colleen Hoover stories for all the emotions you encounter. You just root for her characters and want to shake them at the same time. Quinn and Graham are an amazing couple.

I simply have no words only that I still have tears in my eyes! AUGUST! This was such heartbreaking story that had me gasping, crying, sobbing, getting angry, and everthing imagineable. I loved it! CH follows through as always!

Wow. This was both a page turner and a difficult read. I felt so conflicted during the entire book, yet so drawn to the storyline. So much to be learned from these characters and their experiences. Colleen has done it again. She gets right to the point and dives in wasting no words on meaningless description and unimportant details. I appreciate this book in a way I didn’t expect. We can all learn from it. Well done!

I hate to do it, but I’m going to have to call it a DNF. I really wanted to like this book, but at the 44% mark, I just couldn’t. And this has nothing to do with the book or even the writing. It's because I couldn't connect to the story or the characters.

This book is about a topic that doesn’t cater to me and I honestly can’t put myself in their shoes. I don’t want to seem like a bad person or come off heartless or insensitive. This book will hit home for quite a few people but it just wasn’t something that I could relate to or a story I could get into.

All Your Perfects was an incredibly emotional book. It was real and honest about such a difficult topic. Although I've never experienced the same troubles that Quinn and Graham have, it pulled at my heart strings and had me in tears. I felt their pain, their struggles, their crushed hopes. I loved the way the Colleen Hoover told their story and was not disappointed in the ending. This is a must read.

This was my first Colleen Hoover book and thank you Atria for the gifted ARC. I've never read a book like this before, in a good way, and by the end I was emotionally hung over. The relationship between Quinn and Graham was priceless. It was like watching a car crash and its effects, and I definitely didn't want to turn away. Colleen Hoover took a very relevant topic of infertility and how it impacts relationships in such a constructive manner and presented a timeless story that I highly recommend. What sealed the deal were the letters that Graham had written and it brought tears to my eyes. Over all, it's a beautifully written book and you'll definitely need a box of tissues.

30 chapters, plus epilogue.

One problem took the entire book. It got boring to me. Maybe because I couldn't connect to the situation. I am not sure. It was filled with drama. And I felt it dragged so much. It switches from Then and Now. I guess the THEN is supposed to be where I was supposed to feel the love, because the NOW I did not feel nothing. I like romance, but didn't enjoy this! I loved Colleen Hoovers Slammed, and Hopeless series. I also loved her novel Too Late, This one however I feel was such a huge waste of money. I didn't like the female, I didn't like how she handled her situation. I felt she was drowning her self in pity and the way she carried her self made me hate her. She was not the only one who suffered from it. When your married you are a team, when one hurts the other hurts. I also hate how the SAME PROBLEM dragged through out the whole book, and the epilogue did not make it better. They made jokes about it. Such a huge waste of my money! I think Colleen Hoover's writing is just to young for my liking. I will not be one clicking no more of her books. The epilogue showed no growth. It was just silly.

I am a huge Colleen Hoover fan and always look forward to her books! She has a way of gripping your soul and tearing out you’re heart only to put it back together again in the most beautiful ways and this book was no different! Such an emotional tear jerker that I think everyone can relate to in some way. You will not regret this read, I am still reeling after finishing hours ago!

I absolutely loved this book! I loved how the story line jumped back and forth from present time to the past to see Quinn and Grahmn’s relationship. I cried so many tears while reading this book. I loved the addition of the love letters to the story and I loved the ending. I highly recommend this book!

Vi Keeland always gives us the best characters...strong, sassy heroines and sexy, alpha heroes. The Naked Truth is no exception! Gray and Layla have chemistry to spare and his dirty mouth will leave you wanting more. This second-chance romance has a few surprising twists that make this story different from other romance books. It's sweet and real by being romantic and sexy. And that epilogue......Whew!

Great book! I never write reviews, but this book deserves and exception. Incredibly well written, engaging, and most of all, everyone who’s been married, or in a long term relationship, can sympathize and relate with the characters. All in all, Colleen Hoover is a great writer!

Colleen Hoover has such a special way of tearing out my heart, stomping on it a few hundred times, and then mending all those little pieces before giving it back to me. She has the ability to do this in 300 or so pages. One of my favorite books of the year.

Having infertility issues and not being able to conceive myself, I really connected with this book. I wish I had the love of a husband like Quinn did though. It was really heart wrenching, but I loved it

Hands down the best book. I bought this book as a present for my friend who loves books. The book came damaged with four other book in a completely fine box. There is no way the book was damaged during the shipping. I am really disappointed.
