(Slammed, Book 1)
Following the unexpected death of her father, 18-year-old Layken is forced to be the rock for both her mother and younger brother. Outwardly, she appears resilient and tenacious, but inwardly, she's losing hope.
Enter Will Cooper: The attractive, 21-year-old new neighbor with an intriguing passion for slam poetry and a unique sense of humor. Within days of their introduction, Will and Layken form an intense emotional connection, leaving Layken with a renewed sense of hope.
Not long after an intense, heart-stopping first date, they are slammed to the core when a shocking revelation forces their new relationship to a sudden halt. Daily interactions become impossibly painful as they struggle to find a balance between the feelings that pull them together, and the secret that keeps them apart.
Leave to Colleen Hoover to write a book that sucks you right in!! I fell in love with her writing style in "Hopeless" and again during this book. Amazeballs!!!
I canNOT believe I put off this book for so long!!! Shame on me! And if you still haven't read it, shame on you as well!!!!
This story is VERY realistic. A lot of emotional things happen and I was brought to tears many, many times.
I cannot stress enough how much I love Will and Layken. This is not the usual love story. In a way, their romance is ONE of the many things going on in this book. I honestly don't want to go into a lot of details because this is just one of those books that you HAVE to read to understand just how PHENOMENAL it really is.
I honestly can't write a review for this book and not mention the slam poetry. I mean.. Every single poem literally left me with my mouth open... They were BEYOND incredible and amazing.
This book is not only a must read, but a you-HAVE-to-read-book!!!!!
Can't wait to start the sequel, "Point of Retreat", and I am even more excited to read "This Girl" which is "Slammed" in Will's Pov!!!!

"I love music. LOVE music. Namely The Avett Brothers, Lumineers, Pink, Eminem. I have eclectic taste? If you have any recommendations, send them my way!
I'm addicted to diet pepsi and could tell you in a taste-test which restaurant it came from. It's a serious addiction, I tell you.
I get stoked whenever I get a message from goodreads saying I have a new friend request...so request me, dangit!
