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.
I am a huge fan of the first two book in the Slammed series, so I was super excited to read Will's POV from before and after the events in Slammed and Point of Retreat. Will and Layken both have a difficult pasts. They both lost their parents and even though they are young, they are raising their younger brothers. Their relationship has definitely seen ups and downs too. Now, the two of them have found peace and they are on their honeymoon (yay!). In between the fun times, Layken begins asking Will about his girlfriend and what he was thinking during certain points in their relationship, and thus begins the basis for This Girl.

In every book she writes, Colleen Hoover has a way of making the reader feel every little thing right along with the characters. There is so much heart and emotion in each character and This Girl was no exception. Will's story is such a sad one because his parents died suddenly and two weeks later the women he loved broke up with him. I really felt for him while reading his story. I loved getting his perspective on the events that happened in Slammed. When everything was going down, I was extremely interested in what was happening in his head, and now I finally know!

The Slammed series is a wonderful series that I highly recommend!
