Told from Will's POV, "Point of Retreat" takes place almost a year later from the first novel, "Slammed". After facing monumental heartache in the last book, you would think Will and Layken would finally catch a break, but unfortunately for them, life always seems to get harder before it gets better.

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.’
Okay, so if I'm reading a New Adult book, it's usually because I wanna have "The Feels" (aka- being an extreme girl and overly emotional), and "Point of Retreat" has that and MORE. If you plan on reading these books, have a box of tissues ready. Seriously. I cried, I laughed, I sobbed. I also screamed at my Kindle and threatened it, but that may just be me.
What I really loved about this book was how amazing the characters are, the old and the new, and while there were times I thought Will was a tad bit overly emotional, I still fell in love with him as well. This is simply, just a beautiful love story about two young adults who are trying to thrive in life, despite the fact that life is almost making it impossible.
