Description

Maybe my experience with this book and this series would have been a lot better if I've read them as soon as they came out. I liked that Colleen Hoover did not just focus on the romance and just the two of them like most romance novels. Point of Retreat continues to carry the concept of Slamming and never have I ever thought I would love poetry as much as I did - actually probably even more than I did in the first book. Honestly, if Point of Retreat were grounded in any realism whatsoever there are many natural conflicts Will and Layken could face without the introduction of this stereotypical evil ex character. We get to enjoy Eddie and Gavin again with some fun surprises in their relationship; we get introduced to past people in Will's lives, and also to new characters, Kiersten and Sherry, who are Will and Lake's neighbors.

I want to stay the night with you, but I need you to promise me you won't put me in that position again for at least a hundred and sixty-two more hours.

Based on the raw emotion of just knowing that someone who was meant for you, has finally come into your life. JAMIE MCGUIRE, New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Disaster 'I finished reading Slammed at 1am on Sunday.But he could not have anticipated that the exact opposite would occur and even more guilt and regret would be thrust upon him. The only thing that's keeping this from being a straight one-star book for me is that I use my first one-star read, Wither, as the baseline for single star ratings and this didn't reach that level of absurdity. The entire scenario--conflict, drama, resolution--reads as too simplistic for the situation the couple is facing, and seems like a tremendous distraction from the main story.

Now, if this pattern of behavior were addressed somehow as part of Will's character growth, I'd be more forgiving, but it's not. In the first book, they were kind of cute and meaningful but here, they were just irritating as all hell. Statements such as this pepper the initial chapters of Point of Retreat, and the subtext really concerned me--of course the girl can't put the boy in that position again. I don’t want to rush Lake into anything; I want it to be completely up to her, so I haven’t brought it up. H αφήγηση από την πλευρά του Will ήταν απλά φανταστική γιατί καταφέρνει να μας δώσει μια εντελώς διαφορετική σκοπιά στα πράγματα, στο πως βλέπει αυτός την σχέση τους με την Lake και την ίδια με ένα διαφορετικό και συγκινητικό τρόπο.I desperately wanted Layken to grasp some autonomy, some self-determination, and make a decision for herself beyond simply allowing her boyfriend and dead mother to pull all of the strings. Instead, Will thought that it was FUNNY that his younger brother death threatened another student and didn't want to punish him AT ALL. I probably have thirty passages like this highlighted in my e-reader, that just stick out as awkwardly unrealistic. When Will and Lake's relationship is tested (in a totally contrived way I might add), Lake - after giving him the silent treatment for a few days - tells him that she just needs time to think about their relationship. I love how the author integrated lyrics, and poetry throughout the story bringing deeper meaning to an already intensely emotional read.
