“I got schooled this year

A boy that I'm seriously, deeply, madly, incredibly, and undeniably in love with.
And he taught me the most important thing of all...

To put the emphasis
On life .”
Colleen Hoover, Slammed

“There are three questions every woman should be able to answer yes to before they commit to a man. If you answer no to any of the three questions, run like hell."
"Does he treat you with respect at all times? That's the first question. The second question is, if he is the exact same person twenty years from now that he is today, would you still want to marry him? And finally, does he inspire to be a better person? You find someone you can answer yes to all three, then you've found a good man.”
Colleen Hoover, Slammed

“Question everything. Your love, your religion, your passion. If you don't have questions, you'll never find answers.”
Colleen Hoover, Slammed

Shannon Hi Colleen! Thanks for the add. Not sure if I'm friends with you on two profiles or not since I got two friend adds from you haha. Either way yay for new friends :)!

message 133: by Erika


Kelli C for "Cross" Wowzers....Losing Hope ugh...words cant describe how good. Hopeless truly is one of the best books I have ever read and Losing Hope would be completely tied! Congrats to you on a brilliant story! I for one will be in a book hangover for awhile.

Chelcie - Addicted Souls is it july 8th yet? i wish i was samantha from bewitched. I'd wiggle my nose, go to the 8th, download the book and come back to present day. Or i need the dalorian from back the the future. that might be easier.

message 130: by Linda

Linda I received my signed copay of Hopeless today, thank you Colleen!!

message 129: by Corinna

Corinna Wow, "This Girl" was amazing!! Thank you for this book. The End made me cry, it was so beautiful written and the last Poem was just WOW!!
Still looking for my own Will Cooper.....

message 128: by Becky

Becky I LOVED This Girl!! I think Colleen Hoover is brilliant! I'm so sad that the story is over because Will Cooper is absolutely perfect! So good!
The Slammed Series is a must read, and I wished there could be MORE in there series, cause I love Will and Lake!!!
Colleen, how do you write books so fast????? I'm trying to write my first book and keep changing and writing, and editing. You always seem to take 12 hours and say, "Done!" And they are always good!!!! I don't know how you do it!

message 127: by Jamie

Jamie Whitwood I am so mad at myself! Why did I wait so friggin' long to read Slammed? WHY!? I am going to finish the first one and work on the second and third screw work today. lol

message 126: by Kath

Kath Are you sure you'll be ending of Slammed series in This Girl. Oh no, I don't think i would be able to let go of Will and Lake :| but i butterflying love it! :)

message 125: by Loralee

Loralee Thank you for your beautiful love letter to all of us Will Cooper fans! This Girl was brilliant!

message 124: by Lisa

Lisa Arambula You butterflying did it again!!! I fell in love all over again with Will and Layken, Thank you!! You are definitely one of my favorite authors

A Full Bookshelf B&N says This Girl won't be going live until August...any chance that will change to tomorrow??

message 122: by Rose

Rose Anne Hi Colleen!
I just have to say that I "butterflying" love you and your works. Every book was brilliant and I swear to God I can't wait to read Slammed 3 !You are such a wonderful author and I hope you keep writing great books!

message 121: by Raquel (last edited Apr 16, 2013 02:18PM)

Raquel This showed up on my yahoo front page today. So much love & much deserved praise for such a wonderful author!

message 120: by Brie

Brie I just thought you should know that I fucking love you!


Shannon The Show Stopper Thanks for the add :) I have to say you are just brilliant! I read Hopeless back in late January and immediately wanted another Colleen Hoover book. I then read the synopsis to Slammed and passed. The whole poetry thing scared me off. It's funny how we tend to shy away from the unfamiliar.

A couple of weeks ago I wasn't sure what to read next and asked a friend on goodreads to recommend something and she said Slammed was her favorite book ever. Well, I figured it had to be fairly good if it was her "favorite book ever". So I started it, and Will totally had me at grilled cheese sandwiches :-)

Slammed and Point of Retreat proved something I've been thinking as I read book after book in the New Adult genre. Good sex doesn't equal a good book. I like hot and steamy as much as anybody but it doesn't take the place of plot and character development.

I could gush about your books all day! I have discovered one downside though. Nothing I've read since Point of Retreat has even come close to measuring up. I can't wait for your next book and I promise I don't care what it's about, I'll be one of the first to buy a copy!

All-Things-Books [Whairigail] Colleen what have you done to me?!?

I cannot get into any other books after Slammed and Point of Retreat!

No one compares to Will and Layken and no other books have got the "pull" that those two had.

Help!! haha x
