Publisher's Summary

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.

    "So good!"

    I really enjoyed this book. Fantastic characters coupled with a very unique plot. Will is amazing. I found Lake to be a bit whinny. I do wish it was more New Adult than Young Adult though.

    Story
    "This BOOK is awesome."
    If you could sum up Slammed in three words, what would they be?

    Riviting, exciting, profound.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved that nothing was sugar coated... Colleen Hoover is great at just telling it like it is. *SPOILER* So, this mother has cancer- it's not "prettied" up and made to seem like it didn't really matter to the story- they explained what was happening to her body, her hair, her world & life... and the remaining time she had left felt real.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Heidi Baker?

    Honestly, Heidi Baker was a little difficult to listen to... I loved the story so much though that eventually I was able to get past it. She sounds like she really needs a glass of water- listening to her almost sticky voice made it really hard to focus on what she was saying.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    All of Colleen Hoover's books are addiciting and very hard to put down.


    Any additional comments?

    After reading Confess by Colleen Hoover, I became obsessed. I've since read NOTHING else while making my way through her books... I don't plan on reading anything else until I am finished, because unlike some authors- her's are all different but all SO CAPTIVATING. I am hooked- and she quickly became my FAVORITE author. IF YOU HAVEN'T READ HER BOOKS/NOT SURE IF YOU'D LIKE THEM.... DO IT... AND YOU WILL!

    "Fantastic"

    Colleen Hoover is by far the best author, ever! This book is so well written, you would be missing out by not listening to the story. I had already read the book but definitely had to listen to the story too! It is so original and full of entertaining and poignant words, you can't go wrong. The narrator did a fantastic job too! A definite must listen!

    "New fan of Colleen Hoover!!!!!!!!!"

    I have never read a book by Colleen Hoover before but that will change. I absolutely loved this book. I loved the characters. It wasn't just a love story but a story about real life...bad things and all. Love is not always flowers and rainbows. Sometimes life gets in the way. It teaches you how to really live life to the fullest. Can't wait to read another one of her books. Great story. Great characters.

    "Love love love it!"

    Colleen Hover is an amazing writer, and I have fallen in love with her books. This is definitely my second favourite book after Ugly Love (also by Colleen). Loved the stort line, I am a big sucker for romantic books. All in all an amazing experience to listen too.

    "This narrator will annoy you!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    No, I got this because I was really liking to book but I am returning the audio book after one chapter because the narrator skips sentences occasionally, rewords sentences and i like to read along and this messes me up.


    What other book might you compare Slammed to and why?

    The book itself is wonderful, I just do NOT recommend the audio book.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Heidi Baker’s performances?

    No.

    "My thoughts on Slammed."

    I felt like the teacher-student-relationship has been done before, but also that it has been done better in other books like Sara Shepard's "PLL" series. The issues with absent parents took on a new twist, and made the read worthwhile.

    "I. And. Love. And. You."

    This is my favorite book by Colleen Hoover, so why wouldn't I buy the audiobook? At first I was a little annoyed by the narrators voice, but I got over it and quickly. Hearing the first slam literally brought tears to my eyes, something that didn't happen while reading it in my head. I highly suggest this book to those who've read the book and those who have not. All. The. Feels.

    Story
    "Flashback to my immature 18 yr old self"

    I read this book because it was highly recommended by a co-worker/book buddy. I realized quickly that I would have enjoyed this story much more when I was a younger adult. The main character was a typical 18 yr old girl. Typical in the sense that she was emotionally impulsive and reactive. I don't usually enjoy young adult novels because I no longer relate to the characters. This story was full of tough life situations and a controversial relationship between teacher and student. I was conflicted about my feelings on the relationship as I am a mother of teens and I had a difficult time deciding how I felt about their relationship. My heart urged me to cheer them on while her immaturity kept my brain clearly on the 'this is why this is frowned upon' side of the fence. Overall it was a good story and I was never compelled to put it away without finishing, but I've personally outgrown this genre and I would have undoubtedly enjoyed it more 20 yrs ago.
