Although I adored and devoured the Slammed series, I always felt like something was missing. That something was Will's perspective, and here we are. I am absolutely loving the trend going around in new adult where authors give us a glimpse into the male lead's thoughts and meanings behind their actions.
It's pretty impossible to comment on Will's take on the events of Slammed without ruining it for those who haven't read Slammed (even though this is a repeat of events for those of us who have read the rest of the series, I'd still recommend reading Slammed and then this book-it doesn't quite have the same flow and impact as Slammed did). Colleen Hoover never disappoints. She can do no wrong.
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.
