Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover--A Review

Oh my goodness!!   I  just finished Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover and I feel like my epitath has reconfirmed I am indeed a day late and a dollar short!!    Where do all these great reads come from?????    And why did I wait til now to pick up one of her books???

I never read book two before I read book one, but this time, I screwed up and although book two can be read as a stand alone, I am beside myself in lusting after the first in this series.   I'll be buying Slammed, book two, come the first of June!


Layken and Will have managed to overcome the obstacles that 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 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...


My absolute favorite romance novel of all time is Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover.  Hands down, this is a winner!!  It is smartly written, it is fun and easy to read and it sure warms the heart.    The characters are all quirky and believable in their own right and somehow, they all fulfilled necessary elements of the story.   For anyone who has ever been in love, this  is a captivating read to be relished!

I read Hoover's book in one setting and could not put it down.   I fell in love with Will and Layken and their friends and family.  I felt like I knew them like they were part of my family.   The dialogue was witty and although the romance was intense, it was to my utmost delight, clean romance.   All I can say is it left me breathless, and feeling as if my husband were still beside me and loving me.   When a book moves me like that, it has got to be powerful and great.   Kudos to Colleen Hoover for capturing and telling such a beautiful love story.    I can't wait to read Slammed for the rest of their story! 

I absolutely wish I could give this book a 10 wink review.   5 will have to do, but this was exceptional and unique!
