Point of Retreat (Slammed, #2) - Colleen Hoover We pick up a year after Slammed ended. Will and Layken are tested when an old flame from wills past shows up. I thought of this as more of a test in maturity and lessons to learn. A jar full of stars make all the difference with these two.

We are treated to newest addition to their made family with Kiersten. I wsh this 10 year old lived next door to me. Words of wisdom abound in book two as well.

“Sometimes things happen in life that you didn’t plan for. All you can do is suck it up and start mapping out a new plan.”

“A guy can tell a girl he's in love with her until he's blue in the face. Words don't mean anything to a woman when her head’s full of doubt. You have to show her.”

“Love is the most beautiful thing in the world. Unfortunately, it’s also one of the hardest things in the world to hold on to, and one of the easiest things to throw away.”

Tears, laughs and lessons for life. A must read.
