I'm laughing. I'm crying. I'm shaking.
It was perfect. Every single line was perfect.
Beautiful. Heartbreak. Breathtaking.
Pure. butterflying. gold.


Books like this are the reason why I love reading.

Colleen Hoover has outdone herself. She managed to take a story that we love and retell it from the hero’s POV while still making every single word of it feel new, fresh and powerful.

Yes, technica

COLLEEN.HOOVER.NEVER.DISAPPOINTS. And once again, she has proven this statement right. This Girl was the perfect final chapter to a magnificent series that will forever reside on my all time favorites shelf. This story was so beautifully written that I almost wanted to highlight the entire book. And well, reading the story from Will's POV surely provided a lot of *swoon* and *sigh* worthy moments...

But I'll go ahead and reveal it to you anyway...

Every time I read Colleen Hoover's books, I am left speechless, emotionally attached, and not wanting to let go. Will, Lake, and the rest of the of the gang in the Slammed Series have made permanent residency in my heart. So even though it was bittersweet to say goodbye, I couldn't be happier with how Colleen has ended Will and Lake's story. It left me with, forgive the pun, "butterflies" and happy tears.

I can never get enough of Will Cooper, and reading this book has only made me fall even hard

I love Slammed and Point of Retreat. Seriously loved them... but this, this was something else entirely. Love is not a strong enough word about how I feel about this book! Colleen Hoover’s writing is beautiful, magical, wonderful. This was essentially Slammed, from Will Cooper’s perspective, but it was so much more than that! Will and Lake are (view spoiler) and talking about the past... She is asking him questions and we are getting to see all of our favorite

We're born into the world
As just one small piece to the puzzle
That makes up an entire life.
It's up to us throughout our years,
to find all the pieces that fit.
The pieces that connect who we are
To who we were
To who we'll one day be.

No snazzy gifs or pictures, I feel bad enough writing this.

Before I get pitchforked and stoned to death I have to explain my love and faith in Colleen Hoover. I LOVE this woman. If you've read her blog posts, her books, her poetry, how can you not?! Seriously.
And that’s how it’s done folks!

A masterpiece!

The book was so perfect that it broke the star scale here.

BUT then...
Holy Hell, THIS BOOK ...

“If I took every romantic poem, every book, every song, and every movie I've ever read, heard or seen and extracted the breathtaking moments, somehow bottling them up, they would pale in comparison to this moment.

This moment is incomparable.”

There's a part of me that debated writing a review for this book at all considering the majority of this is just rehashed material from the first book with little new offerings. How do you write a review on a book in which the majority just copy/pasted material with some reworkings from a different perspective character of another novel? It's one thing if maybe it was a novella telling some slightly different perspective points but still offering new insights, or if it were a short story capturi ...more

Words cannot express how much I loved this book !!! Wills point of view was so captivating. How the story went back and forth from present to past. It was the best walk down memory lane.

The book opens up with The Honeymoon ❤ so from the get go I was in Swoon City.

I read a book last year,

A book about love

It was heartbreakingly, beautifully, butterflyingly above and beyond

When I read I got schooled I was completely floored

I’d never heard anything like it before

I wanted more

In Slammed she felt rejected

But by Point of Retreat it was beyond what I expected

I could have sworn that was the end of the score

Even as I look at these beautiful quotes from this book, it brings out emotions which no book has ever brought out for me.

Its not often that we come across love stories which touch us in such a way that it will Forever be engraved in our minds and hearts and this is without a doubt one of them...

This is a review with a difference so we hope you’ll bear with us.

We were going to discuss the contents of this book but scrapped that idea because…well, it’s Colleen Hoover so you know it’s well written. Most of you already know Will and Layken and all the other characters from the Slammed Series (if y

It's hard to even know what to write about this book. I loved it. I loved every single page, every single word.

This Girl is so much more than just Slammed from Will's perspective. While I loved reliving some of my most cherished scenes through Will's eyes, I think I loved the "new" stuff even more. It really seemed to fill in all the blanks, even some "blanks" that I didn't realize were there. We got to see some of what Will went through before he met Lake, how he fell in love with her, and mu

I don't quite know how to express the depth of my love for this book...and this series...and Will-freaking-Cooper!!!!!

No words I can come up with can fully express how much I loved this book and this series. Colleen Hoover has created a beautiful story with Will and Layken and told it so effortlessly. It will forever hold a place in my most favorite books EVER!!!!!

Before you read further...if you haven't read Slammed or Point of Retreat, stop and GO

After fabulous Slammed and Point of Retreat this was a must read for me! I was looking forward to spending some more time with Will, Layken and their family and I got exactly what I had expected. I laughed, I cried, I swooned. This Girl was superb conclusion to this amazing series and I loved it all!

This Girl is Slammed && Point of Retreat in Will Cooper’s point of view. OHmahGAWD right?????

So let me say, I was expecting a play-by-play of Slammed/PoR – just in Will’s POV. PLEASANTLY SURPRISED that it wasn’t!!!! Will had his own story, and added his own flair to their lives and how he endured certain situations. Will and Lake have become one of my MOST FAVORITE literary couples. Anyways – long and beaut

I had the absolute privilege by continuing the heartbreaking story of Layken and Will . This girl is Slammed from Will's point of view BUT here were the BRILLIANT part comes,Colleen did PERFECT Job writing this one! she didn't only write a POV book to get money, she wrote about the past, the present, and the future she satisfied everyone. Whether we wanted as fans to know what Will was thinking in
Wow. Holy shit. This was all kinds of perfection. It was a heart-stopping read. I loved the bejebus out of it.

I just can't stomach that there are people out there who might never find someone who makes them feel like Will makes Layken feel and vice versa. It should be considered a crime not to have someone to love and have them love you back so intensely. Luckily, I'm one of those people who've already found their love of their life and I really can confirm that this kind love is not only found
I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS GIRL (Funny enough I didn't know Will's Story is called This Girl until I check Colleen's page. Yes, I am guilty of stalking her page. CAN'T HELP IT I'M IN LOVE WITH THESE BOOKS. Can't get over these amazing pieces of writing.) I'm so stoked for this book. Alas I need to wait UNTIL NEXT YEAR.

Waiting patiently.



OKAY, OKAY! I admit it, I'M WAITING IMPATIENTLY. Patience is a word that I can't associate with waiting on THIS GIRL.


I LOVED Slammed and Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover so I was guessing This Girl would be a slam dunk for me and it totally was! This is a must read for any fan of the series. If you haven’t read either, you may want to stop reading now as there will be spoilers ahead.

Will and Lake are on their honeymoon enjoying wedded bliss, and it’s here that we catch up with them. This Girl is told from Will’s perspective, and much of this story is reminiscing and going over the events of Slammed through
Thank you, thank you, thank you Colleen Hoover!!! This book is the PERFECT finish to Layken and Will’s story. I couldn’t have wished for better!

To start with, I give you my Will Cooper…

“Layken Cooper, I love you. I’ve loved you since the second I laid eyes on you and I haven’t stopped loving you for a second since.”

Holy freaking SWOOOOOOOOOOOOOON! I think Colleen may have created the perfect man. He’s so gorgeous, I absolutely love him!
