This Girl by Colleen Hoover

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 Girl is the final in the Slammed series, as told from Will's point of view.
As Will and Lake are finally on their honeymoon. It has taken the newly married couple tragedy, laughter, seperation, and love to finally reach the point in their lives where they are both healing and happy. Over the weekend, Will retells the memories from his point of view of the important milestones and heartbreaking events in their lives.

We relive the death of Will and Caulder's parents, to the break up of Will's long term relationship only two weeks after the death of his parents, then to the day that Lake backs the moving truck into the driveway across the street. He was instantly taken with the girl who maims garden gnomes, wears Dark Vader slippers and has chocolate milk, on the rocks. He falls for her long before they both release how forbidden any relationship between the two is. Lake has just turned eighteen and Will is a student teacher. Morally and ethically, it can't happen, but it's torture for either of them to stay away from one another.

It had only been seven months since her father's death, when they discover that Lake's mother is ill. Both families only having one parent now between them. It's one of the hardest decisions that Will can make, he needs to step away and allow Lake to have this time with her mother, even if she seems to bury her head in the sand... Carving pumpkins.

Lake and Will have a tragically beautiful love for one another. Both understand what it means to have loved and lost, and both raising boys on the cusp of being teenagers. Finally, the happily ever after that both families deserve.

After reading both Slammed and Point Of Retreat, I became enamored with the story of Will and Lake. It's a magical story of loss and finding love amidst the tragedy. It's tender, emotional and one of those books that will make you fall in love with the written word all over again.

The ending? Absolutely perfect. Colleen Hoover is brilliant.
