Hello my dears!!
I'm so sorry I didn't do the review last time, I was so busy with my thesis.
Hope the weather is being kind to you as it's being for us. The sun is shining.
This book I chose this week is (drums).....
Book Title: Slammed
Author: Colleen Hoover
Book Description: Following the unexpected death of her father, 18-year-old Layken is forced to be the rock for both her mother and younger brother. Outwardly, she appears resilient and tenacious, but inwardly, she's losing hope.
Enter Will Cooper: The attractive, 21-year-old new neighbor with an intriguing passion for slam poetry and a unique sense of humor. Within days of their introduction, Will and Layken form an intense emotional connection, leaving Layken with a renewed sense of hope.
Not long after an intense, heart-stopping first date, they are slammed to the core when a shocking revelation forces 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 secret that keeps them apart.
Review: 4 stars book. I'm a sucker for teacher student (over 18!!) relationships. Love all the forbidden thing.
Layken or Lake as she is commonly called moved to Michigan from Texas, with her mom and little brother Kel. Saying that she is not happy to move to Michigan is an understatement. She met Will the first day she arrived to her new house. Will is the hot neighbor with a brother as old as Lake's.
The next morning, when Lake went outside to grab the last things from the U-Haul with her Darth Vader house shoes (badass btw), it's snowing and she falls flat on her back. Who's there to see and laugh about it??
Yes.. Will. But soon he realizes that she's hurt and takes her to his home to put on a bandage. That's the first time they are alone and when she returns home he says "May the force be with you". So nice ^^
Later that day, Layken has to go to the grocery store and she doesn't know where to go, so Will invites himself to go with her. They realized that they are fans of the same band, The Avett Brothers. Whe they returned home Will kissed Lake... in the forehead. Then he ask her on a date!
Their first date is so different and nontheless real and sweet. They really connect and you can feel it while you are reading.
After this thingd start to crumble apart. Layke is Will student and they can´t be together.
I know this sounds cliché to you. I thought that too. But as I continue to read the book, they relationship is so different. They really love each other, but also they have so much in common that they can't avoid each other. I felt sorry for them.
It is a sweet love story. I love Will, I love Layken, the little brothers, Eddie. Her Mom has a big secret that in the end will bring them together.
Hope you like it!!
