My POV: Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover

ebook, 1st Edition, 300 pages
Published February 25th 2012

Hardships and heartache brought them together…now it will tear them apart.

Layken and Will have proved their love can get them through anything; until someone from Will’s past re-emerges, leaving Layken questioning the very foundation on which their relationship was built. Will is forced to face the ultimate challenge…how to prove his love for a girl who refuses to stop ‘carving pumpkins.’--Goodreads


This book was BUTTERFLYING amazing!!  Seriously. This is one story that I will not ever get tired of reading over and over again. Not only was this story drenched with love, passion and tension but it was funny has hell.

Lake and Will have been through so much in the past couple of years and it seems that they can over come anything.  After the deaths of their parents they have bonded extremely well and fallen in love in full force. But what if their love is based on current relativity? Will their love past the test of time? Or the return of an ex?

The characters are all so well defined and have such big personalities. They are all amazing but I fell in love with a new character, little Miss Kiersten right away. She is a 10 year old “diagonal or parallel” neighbor who is too smart for her own britches. She helps step up the hilarity in these books to a whole other level. 

I have officially been inspired by all the Slam that goes on in these books. That type of intense poetry performance fits into these stories so well and I found myself looking forward to reading each characters slam. These books are not only amazing but inspiring and fun. This is series you don’t want to miss out on.

"Get out. Will," she says as she holds the door open and points outside.
"I'm not leaving until you talk to me," I say. I back further into the living room.
"Get out! Get out, get out, get out!"
I do what any sane male would do in this situation; I run down the hallway and lock myself in her bedroom.
"Lake, you mean the world to me. You brought so much to my life..right when I needed it the most. I wish you could know how hopeless I was before I met you, so you would realize just how much you've changed me."
