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 hispoint of view. Their future rests on how well they deal with the past in this final installment of the beloved Slammed series.

My thoughts…

What a great way to end a great series. This is such a great book.

The story is told in Will’s POV. It’s a little different in the sense that the book switches back in forth between the past and present. While they’re on their honeymoon, Will is telling Lake his point of view of the things they experienced in the past. I thought this was a unique way of telling this story. As a reader I was able to learn his thoughts about the past, but also what they were experiencing during their honeymoon.

I felt a little sad that Will and Lake’s story was ending, but I think the way Ms Hoover wrote it was perfect.

If you’ve yet to read this series I highly recommend it. It’s definitely one of my favorites.

About Colleen Hoover

Colleen Hoover’s love for writing began in 1985 when she was five years old. Her first story was titled “Mystery Bob” and was a huge hit with her mother, who was really good at faking interest.
Colleen continued to write short stories for friends and family until December of 2011, when she decided to write a long story she titled, “Slammed.” She self-published SLAMMED to Amazon in January, 2012 and it hit the NYT’s bestsellers list in May, 2012. She has since signed with Atria Books, a division of Simon & Schuster, and now has six NYT’s bestsellers. Colleen prefers to be called a writer, as the term “author” still terrifies her and makes this feel like a job with expectations. She doesn’t work well under pressure and hopes writing will always remain fun and exciting.
