Slammed (Slammed Series Books 1 of 3)
“I got schooled this year
A boy that I’m seriously, deeply, madly, incredibly, and undeniably in love with.
And he taught me the most important thing of all…
To put the emphasis
On life .”
Eighteen-year-old Layken becomes the rock for her mother and her younger brother after their patriarch unexpectedly dies. Inside, however, she’s driven by angst and losing hope.
Then, she meets her cute and charming new neighbor Will, whose passion for poetry enthralls her. Everything’s great until a truly shocking discovery challenges the relationship.
Only slam poetry may save them.
Here’s an unofficial (fan-made) book trailer to give you a more visual idea of what the book is about:
Point of Retreat (Slammed Series Book 2 of 3)
“If I were a carpenter, I would build you a window to my soul. But I would leave that window shut and locked, so that every time you tried to look through it all you would see is your own reflection. You would see that my soul is a reflection of you.”
Point of Retreat continues Layken’s and Will’s story and ties up loose ends, as a revelation about Will’s past leaves the pair questioning everything. They must decide how hard they are willing to fight for a future together, and it seems only something truly extraordinary will work.
This Girl (Slammed Series Book 3 of 3)
“She deserves to be kissed by someone who loves her. Someone who spends every waking moment trying to do everything right by her. Someone who would rather die than see her hurt. She doesn’t deserve to be kissed by anyone other than me.”
This Girl concludes the Slammed series. It’s an alternative point of view to Slammed, told in flashbacks, but it should still be read third in the series because, otherwise, plot points from Point of Retreat will be revealed.
Layken and Will are married and feeling secure, but Layken seeks to learn more about Will’s past.
For the first time, he’s willing to reveal his innermost feelings and thoughts, both good and bad. This includes shocking confessions from when they first met and so, their future rests on how well they can overcome the past.
That’s everything you need to know about the Colleen Hoover Slammed series.
