I am currently reading It Starts with Us by Colleen Hoover. It is a sequel to It Ends with Us. Lily Bloom and her ex-husband, Ryle Kincaid, have just settled into a  coparenting rhythm when she suddenly bumps into, Atlas Corrigan, again. After nearly two years separated, she is ecstatic that for once, time is on their side, and she immediately says yes when Atlas asks her on a date. Atlas then says;

“You can stop swimming now, Lily. We have finally reached the shore”

Atlas said this because he knows that when he was a teenager he was homeless  living in and abandoned house across the street from Lily. When Lily was a teenager she watched as her father beat up her mother. He knew that the both of them went through tough times but, now that they are adults and have their own businesses they are both thriving.
