Colleen Hoover – Slammed Series Reading Order

in Colleen Hoover, Reading Order Guide:

Awesome BREAKING NEWS by Colleen Hoover prompted me to immediately put up this reading order guide!! She is writing a book from Will’s POV (and has posted a long teaser)!! You can click to it below! :)

One of my favorite books ever (well, two, actually, because they are both equally amazing reads). I couldn’t believe my LUCK when I read Slammed. Deep personal (and realistic) conflict, an intense romantic connection, a few sticky situations, a profound “family feel”… it had everything for me to consider it the perfect books. While the characters are “new adults” (Lake is eighteen and Will is in his early twenties), I don’t know anyone who read it and didn’t absolutely go crazy for it, because anyone and everyone will connect to these wonderful, heartfelt and very real characters. BTW: Book #1 is on my “Books that Made Me Cry” list. And what a cry it was!!

About book #1:

After the recent 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 performing “Slams.” Within days of their introduction, Will and Layken immediately form an intense and emotional connection. However, the two of them are slammed to the core when a shocking revelation forces their relationship to a sudden halt.

Once again, Layken must put on a brave face and accept what she cannot control, but when a family secret comes into play, it becomes the ultimate test of her resolve. Unable to accept the changes that lie ahead of her, Layken puts everything at risk by turning 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.

About the third book (Will’s book), the author states:
“It’s mostly Slammed from Will’s POV with flash forwards…but it also goes into a lot of the year we missed between Slammed and POR. It was something I was working on before I wrote POR, but the way I’m writing it, it would have to be read as the third book in the series. Make sense?”

(side note from Maryse: the “flash forwards” are to the present after “Point of Retreat”)

I am so excited about this news. I read the first two this weekend and felt sad that I couldn’t read any more about their life together! I hope the third book comes out soon!!
