There are some who are pretty disappointed with this book but I think this one’s actually better than the first book. I love how the first book made us like Will and Layken but this book made me fall in love even more with their story. Not only that, we’re treated more with Kel, Caulder, Eddie, Gavin, Sheree and the feisty Keirsten!

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. (source)

Point Of Retreat was told through Will’s perspective after the death of Layken’s mom and into the progress of their relationship. My, I just love this two! In the first book, I was swooning over Will and loving his character so much, this time – I’m over the moon with Layken. That’s a bit odd right? Considering that Will’s character the one telling the story. I also love that this was funnier than the first one. Some may call it a bit cheesy but really, I’m such a sucker for cheesy lines these days! I can’t believe that after raving about the Beautiful Disaster series – I’ve my new favorite couple again (well next to Ty and Zane ofcourse). You see, Will and Layken are realistic characters and somewhere, a couple like them existed! I’m so butterflying inlove with this character. Their interaction’s such a joy to read! I think I’d reread this book sooner than I expected! It’s nice when an accompanying book surpassed its predecessor! I’m totally putting Colleen Hoover to my always-watch-out author list from now on.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
