Goodreads Synopsis

Layken's father died suddenly, leaving her to gather every ounce of strength to be a pillar for her family, in order to prevent their world from falling apart. Now her life is taking another unexpected turn…
Layken's mother gets a job which leads to an unwanted move across country. However, a new home means new neighbours… and Layken's new neighbour is the very attractive Will Cooper.
Will has an intriguing passion for slam poetry, and a matching passion for life. The two feel an irresistible attraction but are rocked to the core when a shocking revelation brings their romance to a screeching halt.
Layken and Will must find a way to fight the forces that threaten to tear them apart… or learn to live without each other.

Gisela (chicadorlando) | 2788 comments Eep I forgot! have to load it on my reader and I'm ready to go!

CaroB (CarobSimms) | 5551 comments Ok, I'm starting this today :-)

Elishia | 2570 comments I've read them already earlier in the month, i couldn't wait.

Rebecca (LadyBeccaBoo) | 218 comments This is a GREAT book. Read it a few months ago. Hopefully I will remember to pop in and see what everyone thinks! Happy reading!

CaroB (CarobSimms) | 5551 comments Definitely feel free to pop and make some comments.

Nikita | 170 comments will start this today as well

CaroB (CarobSimms) | 5551 comments OK, I started this yesterday morning, and have to admit it took me a few chapters to get into it, but then Young-Adult isn't usually my most favouritest romantic sub-genre...

How are you all going?
What do you think of Layken?

Rebecca (LadyBeccaBoo) | 218 comments The real question is... what does everyone think of WILL? :D

Carrie  | 699 comments Will is very swoon worthy *sigh*

CaroB (CarobSimms) | 5551 comments He completely is! I was having mushy moments reading this book. They're both so young and yet have had so much in their lives to overcome.
I found myself wishing there was somewhere near me that did slam nights too!
Layken's refusal to face her problems is understandable but SO frustrating.

Rebecca (LadyBeccaBoo) | 218 comments I know right? Stop carving pumpkins!

CaroB (CarobSimms) | 5551 comments Rebecca, will you continue on with Point of Retreat?

Rebecca (LadyBeccaBoo) | 218 comments Oh yes, I read point of retreat right after I finished. Also great. "Butterflying " great :) (joke from the 2nd book)

CaroB (CarobSimms) | 5551 comments Lol! I found myself wanting to say that yesterday to a friend, but I stopped myself because I knew she wouldn't understand.

Rebecca (LadyBeccaBoo) | 218 comments I hate it when that happens!

Nikita | 170 comments Just finished the book and thought it was amazing. I could relate to Layken with avoiding her problems as its something I do a lot and Will is definitely swoon-worthy. I absolutely LOVED Eddie and Gavin and hope the author decides to write a book with them.

Carrie  | 699 comments There is suppose to be a third from what I hear, and Slammed is getting turned into a movie I do believe.

CaroB (CarobSimms) | 5551 comments This would work so well for a movie! And it might encourage more "slams" to start up locally... I can only hope!
