REVIEW: SLAMMED BY COLLEEN HOOVER

SLAMMED
SLAMMED #1
COLLEEN HOOVER
GENRE: YA

Following the unexpected death of her father, 18-year-old Layken is forced to be the rock for both her mother and younger brother. Outwardly, she appears resilient and tenacious, but inwardly, she's losing hope.
Enter Will Cooper: The attractive, 21-year-old new neighbor with an intriguing passion for slam poetry and a unique sense of humor. Within days of their introduction, Will and Layken form an intense emotional connection, leaving Layken with a renewed sense of hope.
Not long after an intense, heart-stopping first date, they are slammed to the core when a shocking revelation forces their new relationship to a sudden halt. Daily interactions become impossibly painful as they struggle to find a balance between the feelings that pull them together, and the secret that keeps them apart.




MY RATING: 5 STARS

I first heard of Colleen Hoover through Facebook. One of my friends recommended her new book, Hopeless, to another friend. I looked up Hoover and seen she is the author of three YA books: Slammed, Point of Retreat, and Hopeless. I bought Hopeless for my Kindle and loved it (review for Hopeless coming soon) and decided to order paperbacks of Slammed and Point of Retreat (Slammed #2).

Slammed drew me in from the very beginning. The characters are so likeable and well-written, and the storyline is excellent. I don't want to talk about what happens in the story because it was that good. I don't want to ruin anything that happens in this book for potential readers. Please do yourself a favor and buy this book! You will also want to purchase the sequel, Point of Retreat. It was excellent also (review to come for Point of Retreat). It is also my understanding there will be a third book to wrap up the story of Will and Layken. I am really looking forward to the third book and according to Hoover's website will be released later on this year.
