‘Layken and Will have managed to overcome the obstacles that are threatened to destroy their love, proving that they are destined for one another. What they are about to learn, however, is that the things that have brought them together may be the very things that ruin their connection forever…

Layken is left speechless second-guessing the relationship whilst Will is Jumping over hurdles to prove his love for her. What the young lovers discover about themselves along this journey may change their entire world, and the lives of those who depend upon them the most…’

A week or so back I read the first of this series, Slammed, which can be found here;


If you haven’t read Slammed DO IT, NOW, don’t wait about. I didn’t realise that there was a second book after, so stupidly had to order it AFTER I read Slammed, then practically tackled the poor postman everyday until finally I had it.

I don’t want to go into much detail about this book, because I worry it may give too much away.

In Slammed we left Lake and Will, overcoming the death of Julia, Lake’s mum. Both of them with sole charge of their younger brothers, and in a relationship and happy.

Slammed was told in Lakes’s voice, whereas this was told from Will’s voice which I loved. It’s always great to hear it from other characters point of view and i find it really interesting too.

In Point of Retreat we have Will and Lake still very much in love. But is it all too much too young? Both have the responsibilities of adults and then Will is keeping a secret which could break Lake’s heart.

This book isn’t just good it is awesome, even better than Slammed. It had a twist I never saw coming which had me absolutely howling like a baby. Which pretty much continued until the end of the book. So thanks for the puffy eyes Colleen.

I won’t explain, but I will say… STARS!
Unless you read it, you won’t understand but I got GOOSEBUMPS.

Again we have the lovely Will and his poetry which just has me melting and swooning all over the place.

This was yet again beautifully written to make your heart break into millions of pieces, it will have you sobbing until you think there is no way you could possibly have any more tears.

It was compelling, impossible to put down and completely addictive until the very last page.

Here is the link for a kindle version;

And the link for the paperback;
