Okay, so I just had to do a review on all three books by Colleen Hoover together, who by the way is like my new favorite author because they are just that amazing. I'm really in to the New Adult genre since well I am a new adult and all, turning twenty-four tomorrow ( woop woop ). But yeah I'm loving this genre because its beyond vampires, werewolves, wizards, don't get me wrong I love me some Vampire Diaries, I am glued to that television come every Thursday. Back to the point so yeah New Adult is all about well being a new adult and all the difficulties and the joys that come with it. These books make you laugh, cry and feel all mushy inside all at the same time. They are just as good as Young Adult books, but with more how shall I put this less vulgar, um sex. They're are definitely not Fifty Shades of Grey status but they have their hints of heavy make-out sessions here and there. But enough of that:
Eighteen year old Layken's world has been turn upside down after her fathers sudden unexpected death. She's had to pick up and move to another state and be the rock for her mother and younger brother. She's losing all hope in ever being happy and she finally meets Will. Will Cooper is Layken's young twenty-one year neighbor, who is into slam poetry, and like Layken is feeling the pressure of taking care of his younger brother because of his lack of family. Long story short they eventually go on their first date and have amazing chemistry, but as fate would have it something unexpected happens that forces them apart. It becomes a daily struggle for them to hide their emotions when they must interact everyday and help take care of each others families.
Layken's and Will's relationship has been nothing but struggles and hardships but it has finally brought them together. Now, that they are together someone from Will's past comes back into his life and leaves Layken feeling hopeless again like she did before she met him. Something has happened to Layken that has her closing up on Will and Will is struggling to get through to her. Something horrible once again happens that makes them re-think ever questioning their foundation in the first place.
This one is a stand alone book that has nothing to so with the Slammed Series but omg is it crazy good. This books is like a mix of Law and Order SVU and The Notebook but with a bad boy in it. If you guys are into Young Adult books and have read Beautiful Disaster by Jamie Mcguire and Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn its basically both these books together. I'm warning you this book is an intense emotional roller coaster in the best way possible. Seventeen year old Sky meets Dean Holder, the high school bad boy, who has a reputation she should be running away from, but for some reason she gravitates toward him. Dean scares her as well as makes her feel alive at the same time. But he makes memories she didn't want to remember of her past resurface. Sky eventually finds out Dean isn't who he claims to be and the secret he has been holding from her tears her life apart and leaves her not knowing who she is anymore.
My summaries don't do these books any justice because they have so many twists and turns and secrets I don't want to ruin it for you guys if you do read any of these books. Oh, and by the way there will be a third book in the Slammed series from Will's point of view coming out soon.
