This Girl by Colleen Hoover

This Girl (Slammed, #3)

This Girl by Colleen Hoover 
(book #3 of the Slammed Series) 

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

Jen's Review 

I probably would have given this more points if i didn't read all 3 books back to back - I should have waited a little while before reading this one. It was pretty much the first book told in Will's POV

But Colleen Hoover wrote it out in a way that really impressed me.
Instead of just re-writing the whole book in his POV - She changed it to him telling his story to Lake on their honeymoon.

He goes into details from the first time he saw her in the U-Haul, to the first time he found out she was his student.
We got a little glimps of his relationship with Gavin, and a few stupid things Will did that he didn't want to do, but did anyways .
We learn that he knew about things about her mother before she did, and he couldn't tell her the truth.
We learned what really happened that night with Javiar ... Different sides of point of views for the same story, it really changes the story for you.

I think Lake blew a few things out of proportion when she got mad at him a few times, but for the most part, they seemed to really enjoy their honeymoon. Yes they were in bed almost the whole time, kissing here and there, hot time in the pool :) but that's about as graphic as it gets.

I really enjoyed reading this series - the first two books are defiantly going to be on my read again shelf - and I'll be recommending this series to my friends :)
