Wow, what an awesome book! I love Colleen Hoover's writing! She just speaks to the heart. You could be a thirteen year old reader or an old grandma like me, and the writing would still imprint on a romantic heart. There is magic in her words. I love what I read and how I feel what she writes.
Slammed was about a couple who met and yes,
there was insta-love, but not in a sexually explicit manner. Will is a twnety one year old teacher. Layken was an eighteen year old high school student. Who knew what consequences would be spawned from their burgeoning relationship?
To me, this book was a compelling romance with strongly believable characters and an extremely romantic storyline.
I gave Slammed a 5 wink rating.
Here's the SYNOPSIS:
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.
