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.
My thoughts: You think you cant feel the same emotions from a story you have already read. You think that because you know what will happen that it can't possibly affect you in the same way...... You are wrong!!
Never has a series touched me in the way this one has. I fall in love with lots of books. I fall I love with lots of characters but THIS series has touched me soul deep. I read Slammed at a time in my life when I was carving my own pumpkins. To have so many emotions that I felt written on the page in front of me was in a huge way, very cathartic for me. I absolutely LOVE hearing Will tell his story. It was amazing to see a story that I already loved told to me in a completely different way. I have and will continue to recommend this series to every person I know for quite possibly the rest of my life!!
P.S. those stars get me EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
