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.
When I like a book, I'm always a fan of hearing the story told from another point of view. If you're a fan of the Slammed series and were left wanting more, this book rehashes the events from Will's point of view. If you're looking for something more than that, you won't find it, but it is pretty fun to see how everything happened from Will's perspective.
I found Will to be a bit aloof in the original book, and although I liked him, I wasn't as won over by him as I was by Holder in Hopeless. This book changes that, and helped me to see things from his point of view, and to understand his motivations for the way he behaved in the original book.
This is a short review because if you've read the series, you already know the story. If you haven't, then you should start with the first book before reading this one if you want this book to mean something. It's a great addition to the series in that it brings things around full circle for the reader, and gives an inside view to Will's thoughts.
Rating: A Good Read
If you haven't read the first two books in the series, I recommend them. I like Colleen Hoover's writing style and the characters she creates. If you have read the other two, this one doesn't offer anything new, but it does give the reader a chance to hang out in Layken and Will's world for a little bit longer.
I received a complimentary copy of this title from NetGalley & the publisher in return for an honest review.
