Enhance your purchase
The #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Ends with Us--whose writing is "emotionally wrenching and utterly original" (Sara Shepard, New York Times bestselling author of the Pretty Little Liars series)--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?
"This depiction of a marriage in crisis is nearly perfect."--Kirkus Reviews

This book hurt my heart because I saw me in Quinn. I saw my husband in Graham. The marriage dance was all too familiar and it hurt to watch, just as much as it hurts to dance. I want to have more words, but I don't want to give anything away. I'll just say this: Beautifully written (as always), beautiful messages (as always), gave me something to think about (as always).
Thankyou Colleen for sharing this story, my husband and I will forever be grateful.

As an Endometriosis survivor who spent 6 years in the abyss of infertility, this book savaged my soul. I read books to escape the humdrum of reality. I read books to travel to different places. I read books to expand my knowledge and vocabulary. I read books for the fairytales and fantasy. I have never read a book that provided me with counseling.
I don't know whether Colleen ever had infertility issues but she must or someone close to her has, because the words, the sentences and paragraphs in this book could have been written by me. Instead they haven't because I have never been able to put into real words what feelings and emotions I have endured over the last 10 years. As hard as I've tried with blogs I used to write, I've never really captured the pain and the everlasting damage or repair to my own marriage. I've never really understood my husband's side of things because I made it all about me. Thanks to the power of Kindle you can now copy text out to share it. I've shared practically the whole book and sent to my husband. He's not one for reading but I am going to beg that he reads this.
This book is about marriage irrevocably altered by infertility. I got my two miracles and 4 years ago I nearly had my chance of a second miracle taken away from me. Luckily I stuck to my hope of Fairytale endings. Because I was lucky enough to get mine and I thank my blessings each day. But for the women and men who don't get that miracle or for the ones that do, this book will move you either way. It will speak to you about what the other one is thinking, thought, felt or feeling.
She has somehow captured my thoughts and emotions in a sentence when I couldn't and didn't realise what those feelings and thoughts even were. The 6 years of the abyss shaped me and my husband and our marriage. I like to think it made us stronger because we weathered the storm but it was cathartic for me to revisit the abyss because I needed to handle that baggage. My marriage is 100% not perfect but it's made me realise, it really doesn't need to be.
So thank you Colleen for writing a book for infertility and marriage. Thank you for the best one click of all time. You have altered my mind, expanded my knowledge and in a way my humdrum fairytale.
Read this book as there aren't enough stars.
Boy was I mistaken. This was heartbreaking and deep.
I’ve only read this authors first thriller Verity as this is more my genre.
So I thought I’d read a light romance.
This alternates between chapters from the “then” to the “now”. Very easy to follow may I add.
I loved reading the “then” chapters, learning how they met, fell in love etc.
But we learn what appears a happy family life starts to crumble under infertility problems.
I got frustrated in places, I kept say.....communication......come on, talk to each other!
Alas, they didn’t hear me.
So this is my second Colleen Hoover book. What do I think?
I think she has a great insight into human tragedies and peoples reactions from all sides. Clarity on emotions.
She draws readers in, then you just can’t escape that nook because those characters become a part of your life, you need to find out what happens........so you just have to keep on reading until you’ve finished the book.
I recommend this to any one who loves a romance, not a ‘soppy’ romance, one with body and girth to it.
I just adored this book. I loved the dual timeline where in the past timeline we see Graham and Quinn falling in love and how perfect they are for each other and the current timeline where they're both struggling with unimaginable pain (unless you've been through their situation). However we see them work through their pain and we see and feel their love for each other the full way through.
There were two things in here that I normally don't like in books which is lack of communication and the distancing yourself from the person for their own good tropes but I honestly thought they were done so well and needed to be present in this particular book because it just made everything seem so much more real. The distancing and the avoiding are two natural human coping mechanism so it was so realistic to see it in this circumstance.
That ending *chef's kiss* PERFECTION!
I've said it already and I'll repeat it again... WOW! Please read this! It is truly beautiful but if you are reading it, please look up trigger warnings because it can be quite upsetting.
It is definitely hard to put into words how this book made me feel. Hopeful and Heartbroken do not seem to be two compatible emotions, and yet Colleen succeeded in making me feel both contradictory feelings at the same time and... all along. The result is sitting in my chest like a powerful and heavy lake of melted lead, the kind of matter you can use to do both things in: either you drown in in a slow and painful death, or you can built out of it the most admirable artworks, like the statue of liberty in NY or the thinker in Paris. What Colleen is outlining in this book is that it is our choice. That it takes time, that it takes endurance, that it takes such an amount of love and patience to get "there", abut where is "there" exactly? Nowhere on a map, I assure you, yet it exists, it is definitely somewhere, somewhere in your chest, somewhere in your beating heart, revealed by in each and every of those violent, muscly squeeze of life. Five stars. Thank you Colleen.
