The #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Ends with Us—whose writing is “emotionally wrenching and utterly original” (Sarah 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?


I was provided a review copy by Atria; this did not influence my opinion of the book.


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

All Your Perfects is a beautiful, tragic and passionate love story about two flawed people who fate brought together at the perfect time. Tho they may not be perfect individually, together they learn to accept each other’s imperfections and start appreciating all the perfect things within their marriage, thereby, arming themselves with the tools necessary to weather category 5 storms!

Upon finishing All Your Perfects I immediately wanted to read it again. I don’t remember a time when I’ve ever had that feeling. The story is beautiful in its devastation and truth. What I love so much about this story was its honest view of marriage. It is about a married couple who face tough times and how they come out in the end. Starting from first sight, Hoover takes us on the journey of a couple as they meet, date and marry. But unlike most books I’ve read, this book is about the marriage. It’s about the struggles married couples go through and the real way in which they deal with them.

Marriage is hard work, and sometimes it doesn’t work and that’s okay. But when it does, it isn’t by chance. It doesn’t work by love alone, although that is the foundation, it is with grit and faith and perseverance. I loved this quote from an interview Quinn did for a school article of a couple who’d been married for sixty years, “What’s the secret to such a perfect marriage?”

❝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.❞

Graham was like David, his love was like the rock and their marriage problems were like Goliath. His love was unshakable. Graham lived for loving Quinn. He lived for making her happy. He loved her dreams, both awake and asleep. His love for her made her miss him when he was gone.

Quinn’s self-doubt and devastation broke my heart. Her pain was honest and transparent and I love that Hoover didn’t hold back on her inner dialogue. Her thoughts and feelings were brilliantly laid out on each page.

❝I’m sick of being looked at this way, of not knowing how to answer his questions. I’m no longer on the same wavelength as my husband. I don’t know how to communicate with him anymore. Sometimes when I open my mouth, it feels like the wind blows all my words straight back down my throat.❞

❝I miss the days when I needed to tell him everything or I would burst. And I miss the days when he would feel like time cheated us during the hours we had to sleep.❞

The past and present telling built the intensity of the story and the relationship of Quinn and Graham. It lent to the passion and emotionality of this devastating and painful story! My heart ached and I sobbed!

The wisdom within its pages was astounding. These were things you hear from a counselor or life coach! And the BOX, omg! Where did she come up with that? It is truly brilliant! Once the full meaning was revealed, I bawled!

Quinn and Graham’s love was raw, emotional, brutal, and at times devastating. With All Your Perfects we are reminded that it’s easy to point out and focus on flaws in ourselves and others. But it’s much more difficult to be present in and appreciate the times when things are good and shine brilliantly.

This is my favorite read of the year so far and my top favorite from Mrs. Hoover! (It’s going to be hard to beat this one!)
