Point of Retreat
About this deal
The only thought I can leave you with right now is that this book is written beautifully and that all the characters are very easy to relate to and I'm sure that almost all of you will love it just as I do.
A young girl, grieving the loss of her father, uprooted and dragged across the states by her surviving mother and little brother. We will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case within thirty (30) days of the day we confirm via e-mail that you are entitled to a refund for defective goods.Layken and Will must find a way to fight the forces that threaten to tear them apart… or learn to live without each other. Those of you who have already read it and disliked it, please don't leave hate comments if you didn't love it as much as I did. It is like they regressed mentally in the past year since "Slammed" and now function only as pissy children.
He made gallant attepmts to be strong in front of Kel but this ghastly situation didnt gave him hope. In this book, we get more of Lake, Will and the awesome gang that we met in Slammed, but we get to meet a few other characters too.I don't say that they are absolutely flawless, but I think that it is those imperfections which make me love them more cuz it makes them human. But if you love someone - anyone, bf, friend, whatever - you have to respect their feelings, even if what they are feeling is hate for your dumb ass. I found Lake incredibly frustrating in this one, as did Will on occasion, and wanted to shake some sense into her more than once, but how it all wrapped up and tied together in the end was beautiful and breathtaking. The behavior that was drawn as romantic and endearing in Slammed that set off alarm bells for me (when Will punched another guy out of jealousy), reared its head again in Point of Retreat, when he sabatoges Layken's car (!
I always turn to CoHo when I'm looking for a little extra cheese on my pizza; some of her books are good like that. he keeps something very personal at his house to force her to continue to come back to his house, and at the point at which I jumped ship with this book, he motherfucking cut her car battery so that she had to ride to Detroit with him! I liked that Colleen Hoover did not just focus on the romance and just the two of them like most romance novels. So if you are someone like me who shies away from the stories in series where a relationship faces a major trial that could break it . Furthermore, Point of Retreat is told from Will's point-of-view, which really did not work for me as an authentic male voice.
Laken is in college and Will is in grad school and they still live across the street from one another. Even when they did choose to bring things out in the open I thought that she was too quick to cut him off and throw away all of the good experiences they had shared together.
