Title: Point of Retreat (Slammed #2)
Author: Colleen Hoover
Release Date: February 25, 2012
I absolutely adored Slammed; it was intense, emotional, and addictive. It was pure and raw poetry that I had stuck in my head for days. Compared to Slammed, Point of Retreat was just meh.
Lake and Will have gone through many hardships in the past year, but there's one more obstacle coming their way that will test the strength of their relationship. Will's past comes back with a thunderous force, catching him completely off guard... and not in a good way. Lake starts to question if she and Will are together for the right reasons and what is really tying them together. Can Will make her see how much he loves her, or will they dip into the point of retreat?
Honestly, I liked this book. I like Will, I like Layken, I like Kel and Caulder. Their story is very heartbreaking and the fact that they find comfort and a family in each other is as humbling as it is heartwarming. But Point of Retreat wasn't as.... exciting as Slammed. In Slammed, there was action, the adventure of finding true love, and the destitution of Will and Lake's impossible relationship.
Point of Retreat was a sweet ending to Will and Lake's story, but I wish it had more impact.
Overall, I'm giving Point of Retreat a 4/5 because it was a sweet book, but I wanted more intensity.
