About this deal

Colleen Hoover is no stranger to the Goodreads Choice Awards, the annual book awards where the winners are selected by readers.

Jonah was a little doormat hero but he was still adorable, trustworthy, humble guy. I adored how he raised Elijah and how he treated with respect and caring to Morgan. Colleen Hoover writing is always interesting to me. She finds a way to make you see things you don’t or wouldn’t normally see in everyday stories. I really had no idea what I was getting into when I started and to say I was pleasantly surprised would be an understatement. I shouldn’t have been surprised it seems all her books give me feelings one way or another usually I end up with tears, but that is a me problem with this big-o heart of mine. I liked this book a great deal, mostly because the writing craft is so strong. It’s written in two points of view, the daughter and the mother. It’s in present tense, which makes the story more immediate. This could easily be a five star for me but unfortunately I read this book after The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, and Daisy and The Six, both stellar books and a difficult act to follow.And Clara? The teenage daughter. Wow. You seriously know how to hurt a guy. Miller doesn't deserve you. Of course, every adult you are close to have been cheating and you are so lost. I get that. But you being disrespectful to your mom and your aunt's husband is something I don't like at all. But the bridges Kenna burned are proving impossible to rebuild. Everyone in her daughter’s life is determined to shut Kenna out, no matter how hard she works to prove herself. Add to this an important secret that threatens to keep them apart. Hoover writes with description that captivates her readers and doesn’t let go. In this story it is only through poetry that the truth is in their hearts, and the characters of Layken and Will hope for a future where their love can be a cause for celebration, not regret. Point of Retreat I hate all the characters. I hate the plot behind. I hate the message the author is trying to convey through this book.

Here’s what I did like. The duo pair romance worked surprisingly well despite one being an adult and the other as young adult. The ending was so heartfelt and adorable. The last 30% of the book was the only time I felt emotional and not full on rage. Meanwhile, the writing was seamless and addicting. I’ve read the majority of CoHo’s books, and at this point I know not to doubt her story telling skills. Morgan Grant and her sixteen-year-old daughter, Clara, would like nothing more than to be nothing alike. The title, Slammed, is a reference to poetry readings which are called “Slammings” at coffee houses and cafes where they are featured. In this story we meet Layken, an 18 year old forced into the new setting of small town Michigan after being raised in Texas. Now, 16 years later, she wonders what’s next. Clara seems destined to follow in her footsteps in ways that make Morgan worry she’ll repeat her mistakes. It’s only when Chris gets involved that he can keep the peace between them, and try to keep Clara on the right path. The thing I most appreciate is how Hoover kept a distance, never manipulating the situation. To take a premise such as this without embellishments or distractions is nothing short of masterful storytelling.That’s a lot of pressure for someone your age.” Miller rests a hand on my cheek. “You’re only sixteen and look what you’ve been through. Life doesn’t play favorites.”
