Slammed, wow, this was incredible.
This book is about Layken and her family moving to Michigan. Her father died several months ago, and she believes they had to move because of money. Now as soon as they get there her brother finds a friend next door, and his older brother has eyes for Layken.
Will, the 21-year old next door neighbor, sees Layken and knows he wants her. They end up going out one night, but soon things end up pulling them apart. Along the way Layken has to learn a whole lot about life, love, and death. She realizes they she has a lot to learn, and a lot to be thankful for even though she also has a lot of heartache ahead.
I really enjoyed this book. It is really good. The only downside was Layken, at times acted really immature. It drove me nuts. I sometimes understood her thinking, but then sometimes I just wanted to slap her. Then towards the end Will does something that really bothered me. I really thought he was a jerk for some of those things he did. Overall this book was awesome. One of my favorites, and I highly recommend. Now on to the next on in this series!
