The book that was so “hot” they ran out of printed copies. I being a major Colleen Hoover fan did not want to wait until they printed more so bought it on the ole iPad.

Review: I will always pick up a Colleen Hoover book without knowing what it is about. I know the story will never disappoint me. How does she come up with all these fantastic ideas so quickly?
There were times when I was reading it and was like wow so happy great book but then I remembered the author of the novel and I knew a shitstorm was brewing and I was right. At the end (like all the books) a little plot twist is thrown out there and you’re like “Nooo whaaaat” but it gets worse and you just cry.(Side note: I don’t think I ever cried as much as when I read Slammed).
I powered through this novel in less than a day. I love the happiness and I love the sadness and I love the quirky “ha-ha” bits that Colleen throws in there. I actually laughed out loud.
Favourite scene: probably the dress scene. Oof!!
Also how does she come up with these names? They are always so different. Fallon. Benton. Lovely. Ou, I liked how she mended characters from one of her other books in there too!
Always highly recommend a Colleen Hoover book. Pick it up!
