Title: Point of Retreat (Slammed #2)
Author: Colleen Hoover
Published: 2012 by Colleen Hoover
Genre: Young Adult, Romance
This is the second book in the Slammed series. Will and Layken are living life as best they can, being young caretakers for both their brothers and they are doing a pretty good job. Although life is really busy caring for their brothers, Will and Layken are still making time to go to college. They are happy in their relationship, and things are going pretty well. At least until Will finds out his ex-girlfriend is in one of his classes. Will he find himself having feelings for her again, or will he remain loyal to Layken?
If I had known that this book was written in Will’s point of view, I probably wouldn’t have read it. I know that’s kind of narrow-minded of me, but I like to read what I enjoy, and what I enjoy is generally a females POV. That being said, I’m glad I did read it because it was pretty good.
There is one conflict in the book with Will’s ex-girlfriend that I could definitely see coming, but then there is another one that comes out of the blue and completely caught me off guard. I definitely didn’t like this book as much as Slammed, but it was still an enjoyable, fast read. There is supposed to be a third book in this series, but I think I’m going to stop after this one. I don’t regret reading this book at all; I am just losing a bit of interest.
My Rating: 3 ½ out of 5 stars
