The one main thing that I think made this book better was that it was told from Will's POV. I absolutely adore Will and I'd been dying to get inside his head during Slammed so I kind of started jumping around when I realise Point of Retreat was told from his POV.
So after everything that happened in Slammed, Lake and Will are finally together (*cheers*). But what the two of them don't realise is that their relationship is about to be put to the test again.
As much as a love Lake, there were times in this book when I just wanted to shake some sense into her. I get why she stormed off and was upset with Will, but did she really need to ignore him for that long? No, Lake. You didn't! But I do really love her character. Lake is getting used to her new role after the events at the end of Slammed and she seems to be coping well with everything. Lake is a tough character and she's got a lot of inner strength, but she's insecure about herself and her relationship with Will which causes quite a few problems in this book.
Oh, Will. I didn't think I could love you anymore than I already do, but this book proved me wrong. Getting to hear from Will actually helped me understand his character a lot more, and also allowed me to fall completely head over heels for his character.Read more ›
I absolutely love the writing style of Colleen Hoover and have found Slammed and Point of Retreat have become two of my favourite of hers.
The poetry and story is beautiful and I wish everyone could share a love like theirs!
What annoyed me about this book, was that it's called "Point of Retreat". When I read what that really meant I was disappointed that that's what the book was leading up to. Also, half the book was spent in hospital.
I read this book very quickly. I did find myself wanting to read more and more. I would 100% recommend this book and "Slammed". This has been compared to Beautiful Disaster and Easy. I however, loved those two books much more than I loved this series.
I am looking forward to reading the final book in the series, This Girl (No). And I have pre-ordered Colleen's other book Hopeless which is due through the post any day.
I give this book 8 out of 10 and definitely recommend it!!
Set a year after the end of Slammed and a change of first person narrative to Will's point of view. Will and Lake are still together Both of them are now in college although they don't get to spend much quality time together as they are busy raising their brothers and running a home alongside their college work. They made a promise to Julia (Lake's mother) before she passed away that they wouldn't take their relationship further physically for a year. I'm not really sure as to the reason behind Julia's request, I feel it may have been to make sure they were sure of their feeling s for each other before committing themselves further to each other. Hence the 'Point of Retreat' if things start to go to far.
Will is slightly oblivious to the rest of the world; so when his ex-girlfriend turns up in one of his classes, although he feels a little uncomfortable he is still his charming, adorable self. Until Vaughn makes a move to get back together with Will and Lake walks in on it. Although Will was only making a gesture of comfort towards Vaughn, it makes Lake question the basis of their relationship. Lake is very mature in her attitude; probably as a result of all the trauma she has been thorough. Although she does trust Will she realizes that it isn't enough to just say the words I Love You.You have to show people you love them, a different thing entirely, it is this point that is expertly dealt with in the story.
The quirky characters from Slammed are still in place although more emphasis is given to Eddie's Boyfriend, Gavin, in this book due I presume to the male perspective in the narrative. New neighbors add an unconventional 12 year old to the mix.Read more ›
Slam poetry is also a big part of this book. Wills poems were thought provoking and provided the reader with an insight of him rather from just Lake's perspective.
Will and Lake are now free to find the love they both craved but have a lot to focus on. They have to deal with college lectures and exams, but they also have to take care of their younger brothers.
But unfortunatley that "life sucks" situation hits Lake again. Will makes an error of judgement which makes Lake question his love for her. She has so many choices to make - circumstances that any normal person would not have to face on a daily basis.
My Kindle and I were having a serious conversation at this stage as I could not believe what Lake and Will had to face next.
So will the hardship that brought them together finally push them apart? Is Lake adult enough to understand why Will did what he and the reason why he had to do it? Can he finally prove his love for Lake?
I was very impressed by this young adult story and more so with the writing of Colleen Hoover. If I could give these books more than 5 stars I would. I loved it and was sorry when I finally turned the last page of my Kindle.
Point of Retreat is a must read for anyone who has read the first book Slammed. For me it was a perfect sequel to this story.
I butterflying loved this book - enough said!
