Description

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

    Possibly better than the first book. Heart warming, well developed and thought out characters make this a must read. You are write there with them all as you cry, laugh, and fall in love. I agree with Jaime McGuire's assessment, the whole read was definitely, "Pure Poetry!"
  • So much love

    First of all before reading point of retreat I recommend you to read slammed, i'm because point of retreat makes so much more sense of why certain events happened. And why a character feels the way they do. Point of retreat was my favorite one of all three. It made me cry so many times. I love the drama . Sometimes I feel like I'm in the story. Causes you to react towards certain events in the story. I would definitely recommend you to read all slammed series and I know for sure you would love point of retreat. Colleen Hoover is the best trust me you will not be disappointed. The book is so easy to read and understand nothing too complicated. OMG just read it you will love it. I promise!!!!
  • Suspend belief? OK.

    I agree with the spoiler in that I had to suspend all belief about the sex, or lack thereof. It is ridiculous to think that two people totally in love at that age would have this restraint, and I don't think that story line added anything to the book overall. I also agree that the timing of some events are unbelievably coincidental, and predictable - I saw both coming from a mile away. That being said, I loved this book. I thought it was witty and charming and lovely and I laughed out loud a number of times. We suspend belief all of the time in movies and I have no problem doing that for this beautiful story.

    Too many tragic things happen to this couple. It was a tease in the end. Seriously. I'm not thrilled. I read this book in a day just to get it over with.

    For the reasons I loved Slammed, I was throughly disappointed with Point of Retreat. Was this written by the same author? Where did all the detailed expressions, emotions, the touch, the words she used in Slammed that me feel all that Lake felt. She made Will's POV seem so matter of fact with no intensity. Will writes poetry, but severely lack the ability to describe his emotions with any passion, hunger, lust or severity.
  • All time fav!!!!!

    I read both books Slammed & point of Retreat in one day & I can honestly say these are my all time favorite fiction books. Reading both books I cried hysterical, I laughed, & I felt pain for the characters. I wish I had taken longer to read them. These books are a must read !

    I love this book as much as the other 2. If you like Hopeless you will enjoy this book too. It is a very touching story of a family that has had many misfortunes but they still manage to be happy and live an amazing life. A story of a family that has been through a lot together but manage to hold on o this amazing bond.
  • Awesome, amazing,love!!!
