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

I am beginning to think that failure isn't possible when you're name is Colleen Hoover. Damn, that woman can write! There is not one single book of hers that I've read, that I haven't absolutely adored. There is no such exception for Point of Retreat! Slammed was a great first read, and Point of Retreat is a perfect addition to the Slammed Series! I always find myself wanting so much more of Colleen Hoover once I read one of her books and it often makes me wonder why I wait so long between reading her books!
Hoover develops such intricate characters and stories that keep me captivated throughout the entire read. With each new book, I find myself amazed that she has created yet another book that I felt so much love and adoration for, that I almost find it impossible to think that I could possibly like another book more, but yet with each new read, I find more joy of a different kind! She envelopes such emotion in her writing, which is also amazing how she can illicit so many emotions! I think that she touches shaky ground and does it with such eloquence and grace! Simply put, Colleen Hoover is brilliant!
Simply put, Colleen Hoover is an amazing author and storyteller! I think it goes without saying that she is one of the best writer's of her time and I am so pleased to be able to say that I have found her work and get to share such wonderfulness!
Keep them coming Ms. Hoover...you and your books are simply amazing!
