***** 5 SECOND CHANCE STARS!!!! *****

HER, is the re-telling of HIM, in Will's POV. So you must read HIM first to really understand what happened to Sarah and what made her leave Will. This was perfect in every way. I LOVED IT. I love the hero's POV. A man's take on things is sexy and swoony! I loved HIM so much and felt myself tearing up every other page so getting the story from Will's POV was the best accompaniment to that book.

The only thing I can say as compared to HIM, was I related more to

A world of mehhhhhh…..

Her tells Will’s side of the story, opposed to Sarah’s.

It started off okay with a cute little revelation about his character’s motivations early on. However, the further I progressed into the story the more scene overlap that happened.

And it came across extremely lazy. There have been occasions *cough* Bully and Until You *cough* where I have been extremely surprised by how much I enjoyed the same romance being told in two different books by two different voices,

If you've read Him, there's really no need to read Her. It is Will's POV but still basically the re telling of Him. Same damn story. Nothing new, we all know they were both in love as teens and she left because of a liar bitch named Jessica. You won't find any new revelations in this book.

"You can't just kiss me." Yes I can, and I will whenever the f**k I feel like it. --HER
BEST.QUOTE.EVER. Loved this from Will's POV...he is my BBF for sure. I can't take it, he's so sweet! Review to come with my tour post on 11/8.


“’You know you’re my favorite person ever.” Her chocolate eyes lock on mine. I gulp. “I know.” She’s mine. “And here you are, buying me breakfast on your birthday.” “It’s no big deal,” I argue. She nods. “It is a big deal. Promise me we’ll be best friends

All fans of HIM will fall in love with this novel. It is a beautiful companion and followup, and gives you a perfect ending that will leave you saying, "Mmmmm Will Price....."
I loved being able to see into Will's head, hear his thoughts and know what he was feeling as the story unfolded. Even though I knew what was going to happen throughout most of the book, hearing it from his perspective was riveting. Carey does a great job of moving beyond whe

5 Glorious stars.

I read this straight after reading HIM. So i thought, this is going to be tough, i am reading the same story in a different pov... normally i would like to leave at least a month / couple months between them so i can forget a little of the story, but i didn't have the time....luckily... I Loved HIM and I Loved Will, so i knew his pov would grip me and I wanted to know more of His backstory and his home life.

Being honest here, it was good to read the story from his POV. It could have been much better.

This is Will's side of the story.... Oh was my heart ripped out and on my sleeve for most of this book. I feared that this book would be just a rehashing of "Him" but I was wrong. It did go over many of the same situations that you had already learned about but was way more emotional than I thought it would be. Taking Will's journey with his feelings kept my eyes wet, my heart pounding, and a slight smile on my face while listening. The narrator was lively and emotional. I loooooved every minute ...more

***3.5 I-Love-Will-Price Stars!***

I am torn. I love Will. If it's only the fact that this book is from Will's POV, I would be happy to give it a 6-star rating. No questions asked. I love my male POVs, really. And Will Price's was so funny to get my mind into his take on the story and what's happening in his head.


Maybe I shouldn't have read this right after I finished with HIM and maybe I took my time reading reviews because this, HER, is just a (less dragging and shorter version) re-tell of

I want to marry Will Price (apologies to my husband, of course). It seems like with a lot of sequels lately, you get pretty much exactly what happened in the first book, with only a few new details. That is so NOT the case with Her. Getting inside Will's head does more than allow you to think his thoughts - you actually get to feel bis pain. The time that he and Sarah spend apart, literally blurs together and you get this sense that Will becomes less of a man than he was when he was with her. My ...more
Pánečky .. tak toto .. sa asi dalo čakať ale tvárim sa že som to nečakala.
3/4 knihy presne tie isté scény iba z jeho pohľadu
čo by sa vám mohlo zdať ako super, ale vôbec to super nie je ... jediné vtipné a zároveň aj otravné na tom je to, ako autorka poukázala na nadržanosť mladých tínedžerov :D
koniec knihy je samozrejme už príbeh, ktorý sme sa v ON nedočítali ale nakoniec.. aj tak to bolo tak trochu utrpenie dočítať

Book one called HIM needs to be read before this one.
This is told from Wills point of view. It's a lovely romantic story with heartbreak & forgiveness. As much as I loved book one I enjoyed this even more. The sexual tension & the sex scenes were brilliant.
The author did a fantastic job of keeping my attention right through both books.

When I finished the first book Him, I was super excited to hear his POV cause he was my fav character tbh, so sweet he wins your heart over. However the only way I would have enjoyed this book was if I hadn't already read the 1st book. It's the exact same story! I was bored and just skimming for 3/4 since I JUST read all this. The only new part was the ending which I feel is where this book should have started.

My 4.5 Star Review

"For someone who had such power over me, she never seemed like she knew it....She doesn't even know she still owns me."

Her is the second book in the Him series by Carey Heywood. I wouldn't recommend this as a standalone, as Him was told entirely from Sarah's POV, this one is retold from Will's POV. The entire book isn't a retelling, but the majority of the situations in Him are re-addressed from the opposite perspective. Bu

I read Him a while back, before Her was even out, and I remember not really enjoying it. **I should say there will be some spoilers so if you haven't read Him yet and don't want to know what happens don't continue reading.**

I didn't like Sarah in Him. I hated her poor me, Will broke my heart I am the victim routine. She got on my nerves especially since she is the one who left! If anything I felt like poor Will, not poor Sarah. I also didn't li

Wow I just finish reading this book and I have to say I love it way more than the first book (HIM). this story is not what I was expecting, I though I was gone read the same book but just from his point of view, and wow I was so wrong about it when I was reading this book I kept thinking what's that in the first book.

This is a story about a love so strong and true that neither person could forget or get beyond it. If you read HIM, you will know Sarah Miller's side of the story, but now it's time to get inside the head of Will Price.
In my review of HIM, I gushed over one of the most amazing story I had read in a while. Let me tell you, HER is no different in that respect. It's just as amazing, if not more so. Last time we only got Sarah's POV of what happened. I fell in love with Will and couldn't wait to ge

I just finished her and LOVED IT!!! Will and Sarah are one of the best couples that I have read. This one leads right after Him with some past experiences in Will’s POV. To be honest, this was the one I was waiting for. I love Sarah and do not get me wrong but there is something about Will and was so glad that we are able to see his POV. For me when it is set up in both POV’s it just makes it better. You get to see how people are feeling and why they react the way they do.

4 Stars

So in this follow up book to HIM, we pretty much find ourselves at the same spot HIM ended. The only difference is this book is told in Will’s POV. POV books are typically not my favorite books and I try to stay away from them as much as possible so I wasn’t sure if I would like this book. I just feel like I am reading the same book twice, almost word for word. Who wants to do that? However, I have to say that this one was an exception to the rule. I truly enjoyed read

**Note: This is Sarah and Will's story told from his POV. If you haven't read Him yet I highly suggest you read that before this.**
I fell in love with Will Price in Him and was so excited to find out we'd get to hear his side of the story in another book. I'm always a bit weary of these POV changing books because I don't want to just read the same story over again. Fortunately we get so much more than just "the same" story in Her. We get to witness first hand how Will falls in love with

I have read series that are from his and her perspectives before and I enjoyed them. This one however is my favorite. Maybe it’s because I love Will and Sarah so much, but most likely it’s because this doesn’t end where Sarah’s book ended, it keeps going on in to the future.

I liked knowing more about what Will went through when Sarah ran. I loved hearing it from his perspective, and I am grateful that Cary carried on with the story so we know exactly what happens to Will and Sarah in the end.

Nie, nie a ešte raz nie! Toto bol omyl, či už napísanie tejto knihy alebo moje čítanie... riadny krok vedľa.
Nechápem tejto móde písania TOHO ISTÉHO príbehu z pohľadu toho druhého, "vo co tady vlastne go?" NAČO? Zbytočné!
Prosím vás, ak ste čítali "On" a chystáte sa na toto tu, nerobte to, pre vlastné dobro. Úplne stratíte aký - taký dobrý či neviem aký pocit získaný z prvej časti. Fakt... toto bola totiž úplne zbytočná kniha. Neviem, čo tým chcela autorka povedať viac, lebo nič nové nepovedala.

I mean we've seen it over and over the alternate pov, blah, blah, blah. Don't get me wrong I love both sides of the story but when two separate books are devoted to alternate pov's the results can go either way. I've read really great alternates and I've read some not so great alternates. Well I didn't have to hold my breath for long b ...more

What can I say about this book? This is (HIM) from WIll's POV but it is so much more than that! I mean you get everything that he was feeling and thinking...and YOU FEEL IT ALL! Carey has the ability scratch that! Carey has the TALENT to make your heart ache and you really get so entwined with her characters that you cry for them, you laugh with them, you hurt when they do and when and if they find their HEA you could jump up and down and your heart skips beats.

I loved Will in Him, but Oh My Go
