Review: Point of Retreat


Point of Retreat
Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I think Colleen Hoover is slowly becoming one of my favorite authors. This is the third book by her that I have read, and I’ve enjoyed each one.

This story picks up where Slammed ended, but is told from Will’s POV rather than that of Lake. Now that Will is no longer her teacher, you would think things would be easy for both of them. You would be wrong. Now they’re dealing with Will’s ex wanting to get back in his life, Will’s childhood best friend needing a place to stay, getting a college education, raising their trouble-making younger brothers, and all the drama and secrets that those things seem to entail for them.

I enjoyed the book, but I felt like it could have been a little stronger. It was cute and funny and heart-breaking, but it was also a bit flat during some parts of the story. I still feel like it is absolutely worth reading and I have a feeling that people who enjoyed other books by Hoover, or by authors within the New Adult spectrum, would really like this book.
