This Girl (Slammed, #3)

This Girl (Slammed, #3) - Colleen Hoover From

I'm probably going to be standing alone on this one and while I love Colleen Hoover and the Slammed series, I felt like this final installment fell a little short. Male POVs of an already published book seem to be getting more and more popular. And that's really cool because who doesn't want to get inside their favorite book boyfriends head?! My problem is when you do this and there is really no new scenes.

With Jamie McGuire's Walking Disaster we got a lot of new scenes with Abby and Travis AND we saw a lot more of Travis's past and what he was doing when he wasn't around Abby. This was what I was hoping for with This Girl. This didn't happen for the most part. With the exception of the honeymoon scenes and some pre/post scenes of scenes in Slammed it was pretty much the exact same book from Will's perspective.

I'm sure though that this won't be a problem for a lot of people and that's cool! I just had an idea about this book and what I got wasn't it. Will does tend to wax poetic about Lake A LOT. Which I guess makes sense since he is a poet, but I got kind of tired of it. Maybe I'm being nit-picky, but I just felt like this book wasn't so much for the series or Colleen, but for the fans. I felt like after Point of Retreat the story was done. Even so, this still is a 3.5 star and it certainly didn't turn me off Colleen. I mean...its Colleen Hoover.

So would I recommend this? Sure! Just be aware that you are not getting a lot of new stuff. Will's great and his inner dialogue can be pretty enlightening and very, very sweet. So go check it out! ARC received in exchange for an honest review!
