There are two sides to every love story. Now hear Will’s.

Colleen Hoover’s New York Times bestselling Slammed series has brought countless readers to their knees with a whirlwind of love, passion, and heartache. Layken and Will’s love has managed to withstand the toughest of circumstances, and the young lovers, now married, are beginning to feel safe and secure in their union. As much as Layken relishes their new life together, she finds herself wanting to know everything there is to know about her husband, even though Will makes it clear he prefers to keep the painful memories of the past where they belong. Still, he can’t resist his wife’s pleas, and so he begins to untangle his side of the story, revealing for the first time his most intimate feelings and thoughts, retelling both the good and bad moments, and sharing a few shocking confessions of his own from the time when they first met.

In This Girl, Will tells the story of their complicated relationship from his point of view. Their future rests on how well they deal with the past in this final installment of the beloved Slammed series.

Im very disappointed. Ive read both of the other books and this one is 90% copied and pasted as "memories." What a waste of $8.

I am so disappointed in this third book. It just repeats the first two but from Will' s POV. The book really doesn't add anything to the story. I loved the first two but this book was only added to sell one more book in the series. I can say this is only the second time I regretted and feel cheated from purchasing a book. Buyer beware.

I LOVED the first 2 books of this trilogy. However, I felt this last book was basically a review of the first 2 books. The only difference was that it was told by Will. I was a little disapointed to read the whole book for 5 pages of "new info". ;(

Hoover's other 2 books were fabulous but this one was just a repeat/summary of the other 2. Very disappointing!

Will and Lake's love story was beautifully told in Colleen Hoover's first two books. I was anticipating a continuation of the story and more of Hoover's heartwarming storytelling. How sad that it was a string of flashbacks told on a honeymoon to share the tale of their journey together. I felt cheated out of the next chapters of their life together and the money I spent to reread a story told better the first time around.

(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Atria Books and Netgalley.) This is the third book in the ‘Slammed’ series, and kicks off with Will and Lake on their honeymoon. This story is told from Will’s point of view, and basically involves Lake asking Will to tell her his version of their story. The story is mostly told in the form of flashbacks, some scenes of which weren’t in the original 2 books. I’m torn over this book, I disliked the flashback-style in which it was written, but there were some really sweet moments too. Let’s just start by saying that I haven’t read the first two books in this series, but I was interested in reading this one because other people said it was good, and I wanted to join in the buddy read! Most of this book is told in flashbacks though, kinda like in TV programs where they do clips from previous shows and call it a new episode. For me, this kind of thing is a bit of a ‘filler’ episode, something that gets you from one show to the next without progressing much. I’m definitely reminded of the TV show ‘friends’, who seemed to have these sort of flashback shows quite a bit. The thing is with these sort of things, if the flashbacks are something I haven’t seen before, then they can be enjoyable, if they’re rehashing something I’ve already seen, then I feel a bit cheated. That being said, I haven’t read the first 2 books, so nothing was rehashed as such for me, but still the constant jumping backward was slightly irritating! I did find some of the flashbacks sweet and enjoyable, but I have a feeling that if I had read the first 2 books, and had already been through these scenes once before, this would have gotten old really quick. Anyway, I did think that Lake and Will made a cute couple, even though the whole ‘I accidentally snogged my teacher’ thing has been done before. There were some really sweet moments between the pair, and they seemed to genuinely care for one another, and I liked the romance between them. I did think the whole ‘yes we’ll wait a year before we have sex’ thing was a little ridiculous, and I have a feeling that if I had been reading through two whole books of this teasing and messing about I would have gotten a bit annoyed. And who gets married at 19 anyway? The poetry aspect of the story was alright, but I can’t say that I really liked it. A couple of the poems were alright, but they weren’t anything amazing. Having read this book I might still read ‘Slammed’, but I get the impression that ‘Point of Retreat’ would really annoy me! Overall; I did enjoy this book, but it did feel like a rehash of the first two books, and I haven’t even read the first two books! If you really love this series, then go for it, but otherwise I don’t think I’d bother, you’re basically paying for something that you have already read! 6.5 out of 10.

The first two books were really good. Especially book one. The third basically retold scenes from the others. Very little new plot. All the flashbacks could have been taken out and then had a novela for $2. That would have been better.

This was the best POV I have read. Colleen told Will and Lake's story in such a way that it seemed like a new story not an old story retold. Good job Colleen. This is a trilogy I will enjoy re-reading.

Wish I would have read the reviews on this one. I am so sick of authors rewriting their books in the POV of other characters! It's a copout. If you don't have anything else to write, then don't. I wish I could get my money back. It wasn't terrible, just not worth paying to reread the same thing I just read a week ago!!

This is the third book in the Slammed series. It's a good book like the other two, however, it is much more of a summary of the first two books in Will's point of view instead of Layken's.

was hoping for more of their story.

If you read and loved the first books, then why not re-read and re-live all the GREATNESS. As the book description says, it is Lake and Will's story from Will's point of view so that was expected, but after revisiting their story after months I was just as excited to be enraptured by all the emotion and good advice. I rarely read books twice because the mystery fades, but this series I did. Well done!

There is nothing new here. It is completely unnecessary to Will and Lake's story. There is not enough new to be worth the time or money. I feel cheated out of my $8.

Hoover has once again blown me away...the Slammed series is one that you will devour up until the very last page where you will be smiling through your tears at the very sweet ending. This Girl was the third and final book in the Slammed series. We get to walk through the events of Slammed through Will's memories instead of seeing it through Lake's eyes. Getting this perspective, especially after Point of Retreat showed us Will's amazing voice, was perfect. We also get glimpses into what's going on with the couple in the here and now, which is great because by now we love them both. This series was the first of Colleen Hoover's books I've read, but I can honestly say she's gained a fan for life. I was sucked into the story from page one of Slammed and eagerly read that and the next two books. I'm already looking forward to whichever of her books I manage to pick up next. If you're a fan of well written realistic fiction and contemporary romance, you are going to love these books.

What can I possibly say about this series that hasn't already been said? I absolutely love these books and I know they will have a special place in my heart forever

Since this book is just a recap of book one told by Will as he reminisces with Lake I found it a little boring. It did have a little new material and I did enjoy it but not as much as the other two
