At long last, after all the drama that struck Lake and Will’s young love, they were finally able to tie the knot to officially seal their relationship. Relishing their much-awaited honeymoon, Lake asked Will to take her down memory lane to all their turning points and the unknowns, the good and the bad, that transpired from their first meeting to the days that led them in their honeymoon hotel room.
If I took every romantic poem, every book, every song, and every movie I've ever read, heard or seen and extracted the breathtaking moments, somehow bottling them up, they would pale in comparison to this moment. – Will Cooper
I have nothing but good things to say about This Girl.
Seeing that all the flashbacks were once again taken from Will’s point of view, This Girl easily became a no brainer, surefire hit for me. I think it was also because of this that I had found the scenes and emotions to be more intense. It was always ever so easy for me to relate to and feel for his character.
I have to say that of the three books in this series, this one has got to be my absolute favorite. It has such a cute retelling of Lake and Will’s tale. There were no heartaches anymore. It was hopeful instead, even during the moments of sad reminiscences. Instead of taking away all the excitement, the mere fact that I already know there was a happily-ever-after for the leading characters only made it all the more inviting and stimulating for me. Knowing just how they get to that beautiful end, with this kind of story, was where the fun was at surely.
The only thing that can break the unbreakable is the unthinkable. – Will Cooper
The poems! Of course there were the poems again! Hearts were all over the place the whole time I was reading, and I couldn’t remember how many times I swooned and melted with them. It was nice falling in love once more with the poems from previous books while also encountering new ones which were either just as mesmerizing or better. Of all the poems, I realized there were two that just struck me right through the heart. Schooled and Because of You are the two heart-melting, second-chance-giving, love-winning pieces. Who could reject love after reading/hearing these two? I bet none.
A perfect closer to the story of Will and Lake, This Girl is but a lovely and enjoyable reading companion, especially during the past rainy days when cozying up under thick blankets with a hot chocolate feels about the only right thing to do.
Colleen Hoover did a terrific job at capturing my heart, and I couldn’t be more delighted that this was how she was introduced to me. I would love to open other romantic Hoover books in the future.
