From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Hopeless and Losing Hope.


Sometimes two people have to fall apart to realize just how much they belong together.

Colleen Hoover entranced readers everywhere with her bestselling novel Slammed , the book that introduced Layken and Will, a young couple whose love overcame devastating hardships to emerge stronger and more resilient than before. Now, as Layken and Will's emotion-packed story continues, a stunning and unforeseen revelation about Will's past leaves them questioning everything that they thought they knew about each other. With the foundation of their relationship at risk, they must decide whether they are willing to fight for a future together, or to retreat back into solitude and heartache.

How far does Will have to go to prove to Layken his love for her will last forever? It will require something truly extraordinary to keep this couple together, and the decisions they make and the answers they find will change not only their lives, but the lives of everyone around them.

"Colleen Hoover's second novel is just as brilliant and entertaining as Slammed . Point of Retreat is absolute poetry." --Jamie McGuire, author of Beautiful Disaster

A wonderful continuation of the first book, Point of Retreat highlights new life problems that tests how strong the relationship between Lake and Will really is. It is more cliché than the first book, however, still enjoyable.

I really don't want to say this, since I loved the first book so much...but I really didn't like how the book started and other various points in the story.

First of all. Will narrates this book. It's so different, seeing his point of view..but it's also weird. I definitely wouldn't have thought that he thinks like that, especially since he used to be a teacher and all. He seemed...less mature.
The middle of the book was pretty good, the plot twist and all.
The ending was also good. Better than the beginning, so that was nice.

But what I didn't like about this book was that it was too similar to the first one, and not as much happened.
I will DEFINITELY read the next one FOR SURE...but I just expected more from this book. I want to say that it deserves more than 5 stars. I don't know. It was good. But just not enough.

Another great read by Colleen Hoover. Not as good as the first one, but it was still good. From comments below, it looked like there's a third book in this series?? If so, I'll be sure to read it.

Beautiful sequel to Slammed. I loved it! I enjoyed this couple's journey through hardship and now happiness. I can't wait to read This Girl.
