Book Heaux Rating: 5 Stars!!!!!
I’m normally not a big fan of the exact same story being retold from another POV if there isn’t a big secret. But…. As usual, Colleen Hoover made me feel completely in love with this story. I don’t think I could ever get enough of Layken and Will, I would like novella check-ins on their lives for years to come. They are for sure one of my favorite fictional couples! I was so annoyed with Will in Slammed, I couldn’t understand why he kept playing with Lake’s emotions. Saying that they couldn’t be together, but then kissing her. This book made me feel better about a lot of things that happened in the first book. There were a few surprises…And of course, a kick ass epilogue.
Here are some of my favorite quotes:
“Think what you want, but there isn’t a single woman in this whole damn universe that I could ever love like I love you”
“This girl completely shatters the window to my soul and crawls inside.”
If you love the story, you need to read this book!
