This Girl (Slammed #3) by Colleen Hoover

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 received this book I didn’t realize it was part of a book series. I asked around and asked if anyone had ever heard of this series and if so what the reader thought about the book series so far. Unfortunately the people that I know read around me had never heard of this series; so I was still left with really no information and mixed feelings about whether or not I would like this book and/or the series so far. 

As I started the book I realized that the main male character was the one “talking” about what was going on and what he was seeing. I was really surprised to see that the author Colleen Hoover did that; especially because I’m used to authors always putting a characters point-of-view from the woman’s side.  

As I got to the end of the book I was really surprised to find that I kind of enjoyed reading this story ,I had never heard of the series and still didn’t really know what the series was supposed to be about.  The only thing I didn’t really like about this book was that it is more of a romance book than it is any other type of genre.

 I’m not saying there is anything wrong with the romance genre; I just don’t prefer it myself.  I think the readers who will really like this book are those who like romance books and those who have already read the other books in the series. I love how this author writes; she is very easy to read and she makes it easy to understand exactly which character is “talking.” Overall I give this book a “B” and I give this author an “A-.”

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
