Slammed: A Novel | Colleen Hoover
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Hopeless and Losing Hope.Falling in love can feel like poetry. Or it can feel like a slam to the heart.Colleen Hoovers romantic, emotion-packed debut novel unforgettably captures all the magic and confusion of first love, as two young people forge an unlikely bond before discovering that fate has other plans for them.Following the unexpected death of her father, eighteen-year-old Layken becomes the rock for both her mother and younger brother. She appears resilient and tenacious, but inside, she's losing hope. Then she meets her new neighbor Will, a handsome twenty-one-year-old whose mere presence leaves her flustered and whose passion for poetry slams thrills her.Not long after a heart-stopping first date during which each recognizes something profound and familiar in the other, they are slammed to the core when a shocking discovery brings 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 forces that tear them apart. Only through the poetry they share are they able to speak the truth that is in their hearts and imagine a future where love is cause for celebration, not regret.

This is my third book by Colleen Hoover, and the second one that had me crying my eyes out. 🤣 I can see why she has such a large fan base. I‘ve struggled to put down the ones I‘ve read and their definitely quick reads for me. I can‘t wait to read the next book to see what‘s coming next! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

It's been 3 yrs but I'm back!!! Life happens. My daughter who is autistic is finally out of therapies. So I now have more time to do what I love.... Read, take pictures and garden. Also! I'm getting married next year.🌻 So exciting.

I'm posting this picture because it's one of my all time favorite quotes by my all time favorite author Colleen Hoover 💜

I had to stay up way past bedtime to finish this! It was my first CoHo novel and I have to read the rest of her books. I loved it so much and I just didn‘t want to put it down. I definitely need the next in the series to find out what happens ASAP!

This is an interesting take on the teacher/student romance storyline. I liked the story, but for character's that were to be more mature for their age, acted so immature about their feelings for each other.

Ugh I‘m not sure where to start. I cried so there is that. Heavy topics but amazing cast of characters but I have to admit a few times Layken was a brat. But at the same time I understand where she was at still...bratty. I‘m off to pick up the second in this trilogy.

Wow! This book guys, it's just amazing! I'm not really into reviews but my idea here it's to recommend and let others know wether I enjoyed it or not; this book I did enjoy!!!!

🌼Hope you guys are doing well. Please take care and always remember kindness is free🌼

Happy reading 🥰

mavey Thanks for the wishes @LoydaElionora ! Wishing you more joy and love! Slammed is so cute! Colleen's writing and stories have gotten better and better through the years! Queen of Romance! She knows exactly how to draw in her readers with her riveting first lines! If you want to go for emotional rides, try All Your Perfects(MyFave😍)& It Ends With Us! If you're in the mood for a thriller, try Verity! This one's just mindblowing! 2y

So sorry Colleen Hoover. I just did not love this one.
I just couldn‘t get past Layken‘s immaturity. She acted more like a 15 year old than an 18 year old. Also, her poor mom. Imagine giving your daughter that kind of news and she immediately runs to some guy‘s house to avoid you. I‘d be 💔 heartbroken.
3/5

My love for Colleen Hoover runs deep. I read 6 of her books in 2019 and they were all ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. So, I‘m gonna make my way through all of her books in 2020, starting now. I started this yesterday and I‘m already almost done with it so I hope Matt doesn‘t mind being a single parent today.

I looove Colleen Hoover so much. I love that Avett Brothers lyrics inspired her to write her first ever book. I love that she self-published this on Amazon with no intention of it actually selling, and it hit the New York Times Bestseller list and got picked up by a major publisher. If you haven't read Colleen Hoover, I highly recommend her. She's an amazing person and an amazing author, and I'm so excited to read her debut novel. ❤

This is the second poetry teacher/student relationship book I‘ve read in a row (random). And this one is SO AMAZING. I cried. I actually cried. And I laughed a lot too. I think I‘m left slightly disappointed because I wanted more romance & the epilogue tied up loose ends too quickly for me. I wasn‘t ready for it to end. But I am more than excited to read book 2 of the series and see where it goes from here. Maybe I‘ll get what I was missing.

Rachel.Rencher Ahhh I'm obsessed with Colleen Hoover. This one is on my list to read next. 😍 4y
Lola_jimmy Ahh I read all of them , this one and the second are my favorites I don‘t particularly like the third one though (edited) 4y

Book haul from thriftbooks! 😁 These are all ones that I've been dying to read (except Hitchhiker's Guide, that's Lucas' pick 🤣). Slammed is Colleen's debut novel, and also the reason I now love Avett Brothers.

Okay, hold on. He just bought an alternator for her? A 21 yet old guy raising his nine year old bro with a bunch of student debt and while student teaching? I mean granted he is getting paid but teaching doesn't pay that much. Alternators aren't that cheap. I'm really trying to like this book... but little things keep knocking me out.

I was hesitant going into this because I hate when authors use the death of a parent as a plot device for romance, but I didn't feel like that happened here. I loved this book, I was in tears from chapter 1 (but that tends to happen with dead dad storylines).

Bostonmomx2 This was a good one for sure!! 6y

Is "It ends with us" as good as "Slammed"? I hope so, as I liked every book of Colleen Hoover so far except Maybe Someday ? My favourite book of Colleen Hoover is November 9, because it's very emotional and well written. What's yours?
Wish you all a good night! ?

For being an authors first book or especially if it's self published, I usually try to go in it with an open mind because you never know the writing you might get and how well the author does with the story line etc. Well, all I can say is I fell in love with Colleen Hoover(author). Her writing is superb and the story is well written! This book is about a boy and a girl trying to overcome the difficult life they were dealt with.

Story is fast paced but very plain. Couldn't connect emotionally, characters were boring and plain.
Romance was too easy and very predictable. Slam was good, enjoyed poetry but thats it.
