REVIEW: This Girl (Slammed #3) by Colleen Hoover


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 Thougths

It was nice seeing things from Will's point of view. I loved the fact that I was able to understand what Will went through and how he felt about everything when he first met Layken. I loved reading about and experiencing his inner struggle with his feelings towards her.

I liked how the book was written - at the start of each chapter Will and Lake were on their honeymoon. It then flashes back to an event or memory with Will explaining his side of the story.

I loved the epilogue. I loved finding out how things work out for Will and Lake in the future.

I liked This Girl, a lot, but I didn't love it. The reason I didn't love it, is very trivial. I wanted to know what it was like for Lake - her first time. It would have been nice knowing what it was like for her and feeling her emotions during such an important moment of her life.
