Release date:  April 30, 2013
My rating:  StarStarStarStar

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.
My Review
This review is going to be short, sweet and to the point…
I was blown away by Will’s side of things.  I had forgotten little tid-bits that he reminded me of.  What is there to not love about the way he adored Layken?  The way Colleen told this story from Will’s point of view was ingenious!  It could not have been done in a better way.  I always worry about reading the same story, but from a different character.  I get bored easily.  I didn’t here.  I was touched and now love Slammed and Point of Retreat even more than I already did.  Will’s love for Layken showed no bounds.  I don’t think their story would have been complete without getting his thoughts and actions.  I thank Colleen for giving us this conclusion to a story that will stay with many of us for a long time.  I will forever be in awe of Will and Layken.
