SYNOPSIS

Colleen Hoover delivers a tour de force novel about a troubled marriage and the one old forgotten promise that might be able to save it.

Quinn and Graham’s perfect love is threatened by their imperfect marriage. The memories, mistakes, and secrets that they have built up over the years are now tearing them apart. The one thing that could save them might also be the very thing that pushes their marriage beyond the point of repair.

All Your Perfects is a profound novel about a damaged couple whose potential future hinges on promises made in the past. This is a heartbreaking page-turner that asks: Can a resounding love with a perfect beginning survive a lifetime between two imperfect people?

MY THOUGHTS

This is a super quick second chance romance with chapters alternating between a couple falling then in love and now on the brink of divorce. The juxtaposition with Quinn and Graham’s blissful beginning made their later struggles with infertility and open communication even more heartbreaking.

I do think it was a bit overhyped for me because I’ve heard SO many great things about this book and Colleen Hoover in general. The writing was not always at the level I expected. I felt for the characters, but I didn’t have ALL the feels. I definitely teared up a bit, but I didn’t need a box of tissues.

This book is very emotional and heartbreaking, and you want to make sure you’re in the right headspace to read about these heavy topics.
