Book Review: This Girl by Colleen Hoover

This Girl
(Slammed Series, Book 3)


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


"But then...
Then this girl...
Holy hell, this girl..."

I'm literally speechless right now!

You HAVE to read the Slammed Series.. you HAVE to read this book!!!!!!!!!!! 


If you honestly haven't, you are MISSING OUT BIG TIME..!!! like HUGE!

Where do I even begin telling you how incredible this book is??
I mean, I literally read the ENTIRE DAY! This book is one of those books you just can't put down. Can't.

First of all, you need to know that this wasn't just "Slammed" from Will's POV.. it goes way beyond that. So yes, the books need to be read in order since this one picks up right where "Point of Retreat" ended. 

Here Lake and Will are talking and Lake basically asks Will his perspective on some of the things they went through, so most of the book is basically a bunch of flashbacks, though it goes back-and-forth to the present.  

"Now I want to know all about our date." 
She puts her hands behind her head and relaxes, waiting for me to spill it. 
I lie back on my pillow and think back to that day. 
The day I fell for my wife."

I think I died a thousand times through out this book!! I couldn't fall more in love with Will Cooper.. because it's just not possible!!! This guy made my heart beat faster and stop at the same time!!!! Talk about swoon-worthy moments!!!!!!

"Life knows.
Life is trying to tell me
That the girl I love?
The girl I fell
So hard for?
There's room for her in first.
I'm putting her first."

"I've loved you since the second I laid eyes on you and I haven't stopped loving you for a second."

"All the beautiful?
It's not real.
It's fake.
So you keep your ocean.
I'll take the Lake."

"I love you so damn much, it hurts"

"You're the greatest thing that's happened to my life."

"It's real now. I'm not walking away from you again. Ever."

Are you swooning yet!? I am just remembering!!!

What I loved about seeing Will's side of the story, is the fact that we actually now understand fully some of things that happened through out the first two books.  We literally get the whole story! Plus, we actually see an even deeper connection between ALL the characters.. and I mean ALL.

By the way, Colleen Hoover.. how about a book about Eddie and Gavin!??? I would sure LOVE to read it!!! pleaseeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!????

Reading "This Girl" brought back all the emotions I felt while reading the first two books. So it's very safe to say I now have the mother of book hangovers since it's like having three book hangovers after reading just one book!! 

It's THAT amazing!! 

And that ending?!!!!!!!!!! 


The entire Slammed Series is breathtaking and simply captivating!! You'll fall in love with the characters, all of them.. you'll laugh, cry, your heart will beat faster.. and it will at moments even stop beating altogether! 

Slammed Series is Butterflying phenomenal!
