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.

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 favor

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...

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
Jess (the cozy reader)
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 have mixed feeling about this. It's not quite what I expected it to be. I found it much too similar to Slammed. There was nothing exciting, because I already knew what's coming up.

“I want to be your soulmate, even if I don't believe in them.”

Short review this time. This Girl begins with Lake and Will on their honeymoon.

Lake and Will are taking a, um, breather, and Will begins to tell Lake the story of how he met her. Before long it turns into his perspective of their entire story.

It's been so damn long since I first read Slammed, it was one of the first new adult type books I had ever read and there's a reason it's a classic. So reading this book

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?! Serio

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,

Until this girl Colleen Hoover decided to write so
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.”

I don

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.

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...

2.5 stars

Okay, look. Colleen Hoover is one of my all-time favorite authors. Four of her books are on my favorites shelf and I've never rated a book of hers below 4 stars before I read Point of Retreat in December 2016. Point of Retreat, book 2 in the Slammed trilogy, was a 2 star read. Look like this book has joined it, too. However, I did really enjoy book 1, Slammed, which I read around a year and a half ago. Probably if I had read it now, I wouldn't enjoy it as much.

This book was butterflying beautiful. So much feels with the epilogue <3. I loved it, and Will's final piece made me cry, it was really touching and the perfect ending for the series. Really, these are books that give you lessons of life and that teach you that you have TO LIVE. I'll never forget the things that make this series special, such as:

- The Sweet and Suck of the day.
- The Butterfly curse word.
- Carving Pumpkins.
- Julia's stars.

And that doesn't cover it. I fully recommend this series t

It's so romantic to be reading the same story in Will's perspective, to know what he actually thought of Lake when they first met. All the times I read their love story in Lake's POV are rehashed in Will's version. It made me look at Lake differently because Will managed to make her so adorable. It's so cute knowing that Will wasn't the suave guy that gets away with his smoothness, that he was so nervous, always second guessing himself in front of Lake.

It's basically the same story and yet I was

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

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 b
