Just finished this book. Colleen is a local gal and this is her first book. She did an excellent job on this book in my opinion. :)

Too cool! I just googled my book and it brought me here. lol. Glad you enjoyed it. If anyone else wants to read it, there are links on my page. www.colleenhoover.com The e-book is a whole lot cheaper than the paperback.

Thanks lighthouse! :silly:

I enjoyed it as well. I am so glad you had the drive and courage to go ahead with your dream. There are so many of those who are "shouda, coulda, and woulda" types out there who rue not going forward and "biting the bullet". You hopefully instilled that drive in all of us. Thank you. What's next?

Thanks, that's sweet. I just started my second novel last night. I've had a lot of great feedback re: the characters in Slammed, so I'm trying to work out how I can extend from the first book. The way I ended it, I made it hard for myself to leave it open for a second novel...but I'm trying! Thanks again.

What's next for Colleen Hoover? Colleen dreams of ruling the world and turning every human into fans of The Avett Brothers. She would probably make it illegal to speak ill of "The Brothers". I know this to be fact.

BTW, Slammed is an awesome book. One of the best I've read.

And, yes Colleen, you know who I am. Just think about it. Don't say my name, though. :) :) :) ;) ;) ;) :P :P :P

I was told that this book might not be my cup of tea by the author, she was right. "Slammed" probably would not be a book that I would seek out if it hadn't been written by Colleen. I have known her for several years and have enjoyed watching her mind work and her unique view of people. She has surprised me many times in the past and continued to surprise me with her characters and plot of "Slammed". I found it to be an enjoyable read. I look forward to more success from this talented author.

EDIT: I did tell her that I don't drink tea by the cup.

Just an update on Colleen. Yes she did release the sequel to "Slammed", "Point of Retreat"... both have been optioned to a successful production company for consideration to be made into a movie. She is working on two more books now, another book in the "Slammed" series that should be out sometime next year. She is nearly done with a stand alone novel tentatively entitled "Hopeless".

A few weeks ago on facebook she posted a typical Colleen statement. She said she had to take a few minutes away from writing as one of her characters had just done something that really upset her. I think she said "pissed off" to be exact. Maybe it's just me, but I found that very funny.
