 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.


Wow, is always associated with how I feel after reading one of Colleen Hoover's Books. You can't just read this series , you experience it. Again the author delivers an emotional journey with This Girl.

Will and Layken are finally together, married, and no longer have to stop at their "point of retreat". So why would Lake start asking about Will's ex-girlfriend? Because Hoover is a genius. She goes back through some of Will's memories as he tells of good and bad times since meeting Lake. I loved Will from the start but I wasn't expecting that I could love him even more after reading This Girl.

Lake takes time on their honeymoon to not only get to know Will physically but to also get to know his point of view of some the important moments they shared in the first two books of this series. I loved reading some of my favorite poems again like "Lake" and "Schooled" and "Better Than Third". Then Hoover puts the cherry on top of this master piece with Will's poem "My Final Piece". I feel like I should send a thank you note to the author for the beautiful ending she gives us to one of my most favorite book series ever.

Colleen Hoover is always so generous that I'm going to pay it forward with a giveaway. Please enter below.
