Stars Given: 5/5
Review: Skyla Madi has a natural knack for story telling. From the very first chapter of Slammed I was hooked, wanting to know the inside details on the workings of Selena and Jackson’s complicated relationship. The way detail, and emotion is incorporated throughout this novel is brilliant. I felt the pain of the hits that Jackson experienced when he entered the ring, and I felt the strong emotions that Selena felt from chapter one. I loved every character, even Amelia at times for being so real. The characterization was flawless, and the story was beautifully told. I would love to read another story from this author. Personally, I am not a big fan of detailed sex scenes in novels, but the way that Madi wrote each scene was perfect. None of the mature scenes were unnecessary and played a direct role into the ending of the story. It was all very tasteful.
The ending was a shocker. The novel seemed to end abruptly, but I understand the reason for that. Madi surely left us all on a cliffhanger. I am interested in reading the rest of this series, and seeing what else is in store for Selena, Jackson, Olivia, and Seth. I would love to read Olivia and Seth’s story. Overall, this novel was a huge thumbs up for me, and I think it would be a good read for anyone over the age of 18.
