Goodreads Summary:

There are two sides to every love story. Now hear Will’s.

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 hispoint of view. Their future rests on how well they deal with the past in this final installment of the beloved Slammed series.

My Rating: 5 Stars

Dream Cast: Slammed Dream Cast

My Thoughts:

Well if you’ve read Slammed and Point of Retreat and loved them as much as I did, then you already know that this book is butterflying fantastic! It takes place in the present with Lake and Will on their honeymoon where Will retells the events of Slammed in his POV.

I absolutely loved being in Will’s head in Point of Retreat and so it was an extra treat getting to pretty much read Slammed all over again and being in Will’s head. It really put into perspective the heartache the he also endured while he and Lake weren’t able to be together in the first book. When reading Lake’s thoughts sometimes I was frustrated with Will for not just giving in and for being so stubborn but after reading this book I really understood and agreed with all of his actions.

Will and Lake are both such phenomenal characters and both acted selflessly when it came to taking care of the only family they had left: their brothers. Their brothers meant the world to them both and they loved them just as fiercely as they loved each other. This is only one of the things that made Will and Lake such good people, for each other and for their brothers. Together they all made such an amazing and unique family, Gavin and Eddie included.

Getting to read about the present also was definitely satisfying with this being the final book. I’m so glad that we get a glimpse of their life after all the heartbreak in both Slammed and POR. Oh, and the epilogue was the best part of whole book! It leaves me content and knowing that all the characters I have come to love all had happily-ever-afters. That being said, I do have to say that I am wicked depressed that their story has come to an end. Colleen Hoover truly is a gifted writer and I thank her for writing this beautiful story.
