REVIEW: Slammed by Colleen Hoover

Short but Sweet review :)


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.

This is the second time I have read this book and I still LOVE it!

I love the use of poetry to reveal the characters pasts or what they're currently feeling. Some even gives a brief glimpse into the future and their plans.

The romance is forbidden and like with all star crossed lovers there is always something poignant about trying to do the right thing and in this instance the right thing is staying away from an accidental student / teacher romance.

The story is realistic, the emotions are real and understandable and there's no annoying throw your book, kindle, iPad across the room moments through the frustration of drama! And NO love triangles yey!!!!

Overall this is a well written story of family, love and life.
