Layken Cohen isn't your typical 18-year-old. After the recent death of her father, she is forced to be the rock for both her mother and younger brother. Outwardly, she appears resilient and tenacious, but inwardly, she's slowly losing hope.
Enter Will Cooper: The 21-year-old new neighbor with an intriguing passion for performing "Slams". Will and Layken immediately form an intense and emotional connection neither of them knew they needed until it was found. However, the two of them are slammed to the core when a shocking revelation forces their relationship to a halt.
Once again, Layken must put on a brave face and accept that which she cannot control, but when a family secret comes into play, it becomes the ultimate test of her resolve. Unable to accept the harsh reality of her future, Layken puts everything at risk and turns to Will for solace.
Both Layken and Will struggle as they attempt to find a balance between that which keeps them apart and the feelings that pull them together.

I haven't found a Colleen Hoover book that I've read that I didn't rate 5 stars, and Slammed was no different! I just can't believe that I've had this book for so long, and am just getting around to reading it! I'm torn between my undying need to devour, but also my insistent need to saver any and all writings by Colleen Hoover!
I must say that I think Hoover is one of the most phenomenal writers that God has ever created! Dang, that woman was born to write stories! Thank God she took a chance one day and shared her story! I can only imagine her sense of amazement at how far she has come! Even her very first stories are the best of the best, to be ranked right up there with stories of some of the best author's of all time!
Hoover has such an amazing talent for creating these unforgettable characters, perfectly interweaved in this magical story that captures you, the reader, from the very first word, clear through the very last word, leaving you hanging on to every word, leaving you desperate for more...more...more!!!!
I still can't believe that I held on to this jewel for so long without reading it, and anxiously anticipate continuing this series, along with catching up on her newer releases! There are not enough appropriate words to even express my overwhelming feelings towards Colleen Hoover and her writing! All I can say is COLLEEN HOOVER, NEVER QUIT...WRITE UNTIL YOU DIE, because I want to live the rest of my life reading your awesomeness!
