It was a gift!
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.
I love Colleen Hoover’s writing. I really need to catch up with some of her recent books but before I could do that, I decided to finish the Slammed series. I’ve enjoyed the Slammed series although Point of Retreat wasn’t my favourite. It didn’t matter that some time has past since I read Point of Retreat. This Girl can easily be picked up and started. It could also possibly be read as a standalone. It just helps if you’ve got knowledge of the series.
This Girl picks up from where Point of Retreat left off. It doesn’t matter if it’s been a while since you’ve read it because This Girl tells Will’s point of view from Slammed to where he is now. Will is retelling his side of the story to Layken. I know that this might be annoying to some, as it’s repeating the story, but for me, I thought it was fun to go back through the events. There were some key events that I enjoyed revisiting and seeing from a different perspective.
I felt like revisiting from a different perspective was an interesting way to tie up loose ends in the series. I love these characters and felt like the reader went on such a journey with them. It was so good to read this story knowing that it was all going to turn out okay.
I’m really looking forward to reading Maybe Someday and Ugly Love because I thoroughly enjoy Colleen Hoover’s writing!
