Slammed is the first book of the series, and it introduces you to Layken, a girl who’s feeling a little lost in the world, and Will, a boy who can be everything but lost, since he has so many responsibilities. I loved how everything was presented in this story.. Especially the poems. Those poems will kill you, either from happiness or sadness, but they’re all amazing.
I’ve read this particular book twice now and the second time was as good as the first one. About the characters… Will is amazing, he’s incredibly good at heart. Even though he messes up a couple of times, I know and understand why he did it, and even so, I just loved him. I love Lake too, she’s a great female main character, her reactions are completely normal, her situation is not an easy one, and everyone has the right to be mad sometimes :).. Last but not least, Kel and Caulder… those kids sure can teach you a few things about life! They’re awesome.
I would recommend this book to ANYONE looking for a good love story, because it is sooo much more than just that. The writing is incredible, I just love how Colleen Hoover’s book, she’s an amazing author. Her books are completely relatable and you just know she’s going for something real.
