“Layken’s father died suddenly, leaving her to gather every ounce of strength to be a pillar for her family, in order to prevent their world from falling apart. Now her life is taking another unexpected turn…
Layken’s mother gets a job which leads to an unwanted move across the country. However, a new home means new neighbours… and Layken’s new neighbour is the very attractive Will Cooper.
Will has an intriguing passion for slam poetry, and a matching passion for life. The two feel an irresistible attraction but are rocked to the core when a shocking revelation brings their romance to a screeching halt. Layken and Will must find a way to fight the forces that threaten to tear them apart…or learn to live without each other.”
she did it again.
Colleen Hoover took my heart and my emotions and did whatever she wanted with them. I smiled, i cried, i got mad than smiled again. What a ride, i lost all control over my feelings on page one and she only set me free on the last sentence. How is that even possible?
i am so glad that i picked up Slammed because it was amazing. The characters are all so great. When i think of Layken, i think about a young girl trying her best to keep her head out of the water. Crap keeps happening and she keeps trying. I love how she cares about everyone around her. Yes she is a bit impulsive and no she is not perfect, but that makes her relatable. Will is also very interesting. He is not the typical boy that we usually find in these kind of books. I like how mature he is and how he is trying to do the right thing all the time even if it hurts him. He’s unique. The relationship are well develop and i enjoyed seeing them grown.
my only problem is that i think this books explores too many issues. There is alot going on and i found that some parts of the plot were left out. They could’ve been cut off completely and the story would still be amazing. Sometimes less is better.
But the issues that are well explored really made this book special. The whole part about responsabilities made me think alot about my life and it adds a lot of dimension to the story.
i’m interested to see what happens next.
