From #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Starts with Us and It Ends with Us, Colleen Hoover’s romantic, emotion-packed debut novel unforgettably captures all the magic and confusion of first love, as two young people forge an unlikely bond before discovering that fate has other plans for them.

Following the unexpected death of her father, eighteen-year-old Layken becomes the rock for both her mother and younger brother. She appears resilient and tenacious, but inside, she's losing hope. Then she meets her new neighbor Will, a handsome twenty-one-year-old whose mere presence leaves her flustered and whose passion for poetry slams thrills her.

Not long after a heart-stopping first date during which each recognizes something profound and familiar in the other, they are slammed to the core when a shocking discovery brings 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 forces that tear them apart. Only through the poetry they share are they able to speak the truth that is in their hearts and imagine a future where love is cause for celebration, not regret.

    My father passed away 6 months ago and its been a very hard 6 months with such grief. This book has opened up my eyes as to how we move forward with all the first we are having without my father. Thank you Colleen for writing this book…….Melissa

    I really wanted to like this book but the female main character is beyond immature and selfish and it is hard to swallow. It’s actually frustrating how she acts at times and while I understand she is 18, it’s definitely aggravating. I just don’t think this book has the same magic that her other books have and I was a little disappointed by it.

    I chose to read this book after my 1st read from this author "Verity". I decided to try another one of her books, which brought me to Slammed. I loved this book. I was easily drawn in and enthralled with the characters and i cried.. a lot. Im looking forward to the next book in the series.

    Oh my god. This book destroyed me and put the pieces back together all within a few hours. This book made me truly think about life, death, and everything in between. Absolutely heartbreaking in the best possible way. Sobbed for a few minutes after finishing, and I’ve never done that with a book before. If 10/5 stars was an option I’d give it in a heartbeat.
