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 hispoint of view. Their future rests on how well they deal with the past in this final installment of the beloved Slammed series.


Plot: I can even… I don’t even know where to start. (Collects thoughts.) Okay, lets see if I can put this out there without turning to a blubbering mess. Will. This is all him baby. And even though this story has already been told through Layken, Will’s side is so much better. Because their story can’t be complete without both sides. Will’s story starts from the beginning of when he lost his parents till now. It’s beautifully told with so much emotion, I gulped it down like a man parched for water. My eyes did not leave the page till there was no more words to be read.

Love: Well course you know its about Will and Layken, duh! But what you don’t know are his thoughts. What he saw Layken as.  More importantly, who Layken was to him. Every time Will recalled a memory of Layken whether is be good or bad, she changed him. And that’s is the power of true love.

Ending: Seriously? BEST. ENDING. EVER. Once the story line catches up to the timeline as where Will and Layken are at, it’s…gosh there are no words for it other than its beautiful. I re-read the last paragraph a few times just cause I wanted to re-live that emotional high it gave me. Tears feel down my cheek and made me smile so hard.

A story that is captivating yet loving, This Girl sets many high standards. Impeccably written with deep emotions weaved into every single line, This Girl proves to be extraordinary in every way.  Thoughtful and remarkable, This Girl I will never forget.

I give it 5 BITES!


Happy Reading!
