    Point of Retreat 

    Synopsis (from Goodreads):
    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.'

         I was not a fan of Slammed but after reading Point of Retreat, I can happily say that I abso-freaking-lutely loved the second book in this series. It was just everything I was looking for. I wanted to see Will & Lake as a couple, and that's exactly what I got. I wanted less drama, more happy moments, and that's exactly what the author delivered. In this book, there were certain things questioned in Will & Lake's relationship, and I think it was necessary to get that barrier out of the way in order to move on with their lives with no regret. It just needed to happen, and I'm glad that the author confronted it.

          The best part about this book was that it was told from Will's point of view. In Slammed, we got to see a strong, controlled side of Will, but in Point of Retreat, we actually get to know that young boy hiding within him. I loved his dialogues, and his thoughts were just laugh-out-loud funny at times. There were little things in this book that made it a really good & fun read. The moments where everyone talks about their suck & sweet of the day, the moment where Will & Lake figure out a punishment for the boys, and my personal favorite was the countdown. I loved seeing them grow as a couple, and a parent.

         There were a lot of new characters introduced, and I don't know how Ms. Hoover comes up with them but I just love them. Eddie and Gavin are just so cute as a couple. There is a mini-Eddie named Kiersten introduced who lives across Will. She was such a blast to read about, and I wish the author continues with her story. I loved her personality, her outspokenness, her maturity and her slam was THE BEST. I can safely say that I might not say butterfly in the same way because of her and everyone else. I'm in love with this book, and will definitely re-read it again soon. It is a must-read book that needs to be shifted up in your TBR list.
