Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover

Point of Retreat (Slammed, #2)Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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.’

Juls Review
Point of Retreat has to be one of my favorite books to date.
Will’s POV was sweet and endearing. I couldn’t get enough of it. His love for Lake and his family was heartfelt and I fell for him once again in this story. He may not have made the best choices but no ones perfect. He really did the best he could to work on the relationship, as dysfunctional as it was, with Lake and their brothers. Its not easy being so young and having to parent your siblings.

Lake really has a skewed way of looking at the relationship she and Will have. Yes they both lost their parents and yes they both have brothers to look after and yes they are both still very young, but that isn’t why Will loves her. He loved her before all of it. Before the death of Julia, before Lake knew anything about him. It was like the planets finally aligned when they met. Will knows it but it will take a lot to convince the stubborn Lake to realize what she already knows and feels.

They are tested once again and Will is hanging by a single thread. Lake is fighting to hold on to her life. He just got her back and for her to leave when he finally got her to be with him has to be a cruel joke.

My heart broke for them both. All the loss and hurt and the huge responsibilities that were given to them at such a young age. Yet they pull through because their love bound and wrap it all.

LOVED this book!!!
