Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover

Good Read Description: 

A follow-up novel to Slammed, by Colleen Hoover.

Hardships and heartache brought them together…now it will tear them apart. 
Layken and Will have proved their love can get them through anything; until someone from Will’s past re-emerges, leaving Layken questioning the very foundation on which their relationship was built. Will is forced to face the ultimate challenge…how to prove his love for a girl who refuses to stop ‘carving pumpkins.


The moment I was done with Slammed, I knew I had to read Point of Retreat.  I was very lucky that Colleen Hoover actually sent me a eBook.  So, I definitely want to give a big Book Nerd THANK YOU for this.

I read this book within a few hours.  It was different than Slammed. One is that it is in Will's point of view.  I like that because we can see the situation from a different perceptive.  Not that I did not enjoy Layken's point of view, but change is good thing (sometimes).  

Two, I CRIED A LOT MORE IN THIS BOOK! I did not see a few of the twist and turns that came with this book.  I would suggest that you have tissues ready!

Three, we have Sherry and Kiersten.  I do not think Colleen Hoover could have created 2 better characters to go with this book.  I loved them from the moment they appeared in Layken's and Will's life.  It was a breath of freshness and laughter.

I still love that Colleen Hoover threw in some Slam Poetry.  It really tied the story together so much more.  

Of course I am going to keep this spoiler free but TRUST ME this is just as good as Slammed and I could not put it down.  Layken and Will are still struggling  through a lot together and you can feel it.  Colleen Hoover (like I said before) is so talented as an author because of the emotions that she puts you through.  All I could do was keep reading.

Again, I wold recommend this book.  It is one that you will be sad if you did not read it.
