This Girl (Slammed, book 3)

It’s bittersweet that this book is over. I am sad that there is no more Will and Layken but happy that things turned out the way they did. This series was such a good read. Emotional, that’s for sure. But I wouldn’t have it any other way. I laughed, and I cried. I was shocked, and I was mad. Colleen Hoover has such a way with her words, she brings you into these characters lives and you feel like you are part of the family.

Beautifully written, Colleen separates two sections of the chapters into a present and a past from when they first meet but executes them together so perfectly. You get the continued story from Point of Retreat but she puts the past in by Layken wanting Will to tell her his side of the story. It’a such a different way to do it and I loved reading it like this.

I know a lot of people don’t like reading essentially the same book but in another characters perspective but I think this is a book you just have to read to get that continued story and if you really loved Slammed and Point of Retreat then this book is totally worth it. There is a couple more poems in This Girl that weren’t included in the first two books and they are so special. I really fell in love with the poetry in this series and I am not really that big on poetry. These slams had me in tears and I never cry while reading books.

I totally recommend this book to finish the series off, and of course I recommend the whole Slammed series. It is my new favourite series ever.

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 the 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.
