And he taught me the most important thing of all...

“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.”

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 128: by Erika


Kelli C 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.

message 126: by C-Money

C-Money 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 125: by Linda

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

message 124: 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 123: 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 122: 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 121: by Loralee

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

message 117: by Sonia (last edited Apr 16, 2013 02:18PM)

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

message 116: 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
