You can read my review of Slammed - here & Point of Retreat - here
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.
I read Slammed in September last year and I didn´t remember all the details, I really like to relive the key moments of the first book in this trilogy and also find out some things that happened at that time and Layken didn´t know... There were also sad times in which Will remembers his parents (I don´t remember if this was on Slammed).
The only thing that can break the unbreakable is the unthinkable.And hilarious moments involving Kel and Caulder (Layken´s and Will´s little brothers respectively), especially Kel, this boy is so funny... and also there is a particularly funny moment with Kiersten, this girl is just so blunt. My only problem is that I wanted to read more about this lovable characters.
This Girl is a book that I really loved, It isn´t as repetitive as I though it would be, because there were many new moments, that I didn´t read on Slammed and that allowed me to see what Will was thinking and felt since the first moment he meet Layken and also there are new slam poems. And what I loved the most is the epilogue, is a perfect ending to this wonderful trilogy; that is among my favorites.
I received an eARC of this book from the publisher in exchange of an honest review.
