About this deal

However, one of my big dealbreakers reared its ugly head near the end of the novel, in this case, the dreaded vegetarian randomly starts eating meat plot device.

Again, I say the word "downer" but the stolen moments (and kisses) with the forbidden Will keep her going, and kept me reading! Mom says that’s not true—she says it’s because he’s trying to ‘discover his full potential’ by examining all of his interests. Despite my reservations about Slammed, I was intrigued about where Hoover would take these characters as they tackled their new independence, responsibilities and burgeoning relationship. How far he was willing to go to prove to Layken that their relationship was deeper than the hardships they’ve had to overcome at such a young age tossed my emotional compass all over the map.I liked that the children were not left out of the story and that they actually played a part in it. In this book, we get more of Lake, Will and the awesome gang that we met in Slammed, but we get to meet a few other characters too. 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.

of our deliveries are made by Royal Mail as we think they give the best service and cover all areas of the UK.But I know, without a doubt, that something has to happen to pull the couple apart at some point in the story.

I know that this review was pretty ranty but I just can't BELIEVE how different this was from the first book.

Strangely, despite all of the over-the-top dramatics, this small moment was what really ruined Point of Retreat for me, keeping me from my usual, "Hey, it's not for me, but here's who may like this book," approach to negative reviews.

Maybe Will mans up, maybe Lake calms down, maybe some shit starts happening other than Will's incessant whining.All CoHo's books have that trademark twists so it was kind of hard for me to believe there wasn't any here. Plot has too many loose ends and somethimes I thought that author forgot how she "made" her characters in the first book.
