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.







This is the third and final book in the Slammed series by Colleen Hoover. To avoid spoilers I recommend you read my reviews on Slammed and Point of Retreat, or, read the books!


A stroll down memory lane from Will’s point of view.


The main premise of this book is to look at the events of the first book through Will’s perspective. As such, the main plot points were predictable, but the change of perspective afforded a greater understanding of Will’s perspective. The character development in this novel focused around Will and the reader getting a different point of view. The dominant themes of family, friendship, loss and love can be seen just as prominently within this novel.

The slam poetry in this novel adds depth to the emotions and overall character development that I have not seen in other books. This book is a lovely, heart-warming conclusion to a wonderful series.





Keep Calm and Read On,
