Review of This Girl by Colleen Hoover

A "Butterflying" Beautiful Ending

This Girl is Will's story told in his POV through a series of flashbacks as he reminisces and tells Layken about their relationship leading up to their honeymoon.

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review through NetGalley and Atria Books. Thank you to NetGalley and Ms. Hoover for the opportunity to read this book.

Even though we already know the story, Ms. Hoover found a way to tell it in a way that both surprises and enlightens the readers. The story begins on Will and Layken's honeymoon night as she begins to ask him questions about their trials together. The author manages to develop their love story a step further gives the readers what most women want to know, what the man is thinking as he falls in love. I have to say that I am truly impressed with Ms. Hoover's writing and the way she is able to bring life to her characters. There are drinking references, some very sensual sex scenes, and cussing. I like the cover. Ms. Hoover is a "butterflying" good writer. A good read.

“That was my sweet. Having that moment with you.
All the little moments I got with you were always
my sweet.”
