There are two sides to every love story. Now hear Will’s.

Colleen Hoover’s New York Times bestselling Slammed series has brought countless readers to their knees with a whirlwind of love, passion, and heartache.

Layken and Will’s love has managed to withstand the toughest of circumstances and the young lovers, now married, are beginning to feel safe and secure in their union. As much as Layken relishes their new life together, she finds herself wanting to know everything there is to know about her husband, even though Will makes it clear he prefers to keep the painful memories of the past where they belong. Still, he can’t resist his wife’s pleas and so he begins to untangle his side of the story, revealing for the first time his most intimate feelings and thoughts, retelling both the good and bad moments, and sharing a few shocking confessions of his own from the time when they first met.

In This Girl, Will tells the story of their complicated relationship from his point of view. Their future rests on how well they deal with the past in this final installment of the beloved Slammed series.

5 Stars

Damnit, Colleen. Are you making it a goal to make me cry with every book your write? If so, you’re doing a good job at it. This Girl Is the perfect conclusion for a series that made me cry, laugh, love, hope, dream, mourn and cry a little more. Perfect. Absolutely perfect.

This is the third and I think last book in the Slammed Series and it’s a mix between scenes from the honeymoon of Will and Lake and Will telling his side of the story (the first book). It was so sweet and romantic and sad and funny. I fell in love with all these characters. They’re just butterflying perfect. I love Will. He’s such a sweet, caring, responsible,… guy and Lake is just his other half. I love Kel and Caulder and Kiersten and Julia and Eddie and Gavin. I love the slams and memories and the scenes of the honeymoon. I loved reading their happy ending, because I still believe we all deserve one.

I can’t say much more about this book. I couldn’t with the first two book, I can’t with this one. It’s just so good. Yeah I know, there’s insta-love. But for once I don’t care. I just love this book so much. And I believed it in this book. Hell, I even lived it. It was love at first sight for me and my boyfriend and we’ve been together ever since the day we met. (4 years, 5 months, 22 days and counting!) So I don’t hate insta-love in books, I just like it when I can believe it. Like in this book.

I really recommend these books to every one who loves a book that makes you cry, laugh, love, hope, dream, mourn and cry a little more. Colleen, I love you and your writing and you’re one of my favorite authors of all time.
