 April 30, 2013
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:

Back when I read Slammed, I instantly fell in love with Lakyn and Will’s story. Actually, that’s pretty much the case with all of Colleen’s characters. Her books are insta-buys for me and I love them. That said, I drug my feet on getting this one….majorly.

I think part was that I didn’t want the story to be over. Also, same story, different point of view, tends to get repetitive…that’s never the case with her books! I always want more! With that said, This Girl is a necessity if you have read Slammed and Point of Retreat. It was refreshing to hear Will’s side of things and know what was going on in his head during the book.
