Point of Retreat
About this deal
Dd it leave you feeling grateful that somebody forced you to do something so you didn't have to worry your pretty little head with figuring out what YOU wanted? She’s managed to steal my concentration captive and render me worthless until I read her story of Layken and Will in Point of Retreat from eCover to eCover. There is a way to make your presence known, to remind someone of why they love you, without turning into Kathy Bates from misery and removing all their freedom from you. I think that hearing the story through Will's point of view helped to maintain the love connection that exists between these two.
As soon as Will decided that it would be best to not let Lake know that Vaughn was taking one of his college classes with him I knew there was going to be trouble in Will's immediate future.
What I hate, however, is the fact that everything that happens between me and Lake, and Gavin and Eddie… we all seem to know about. Most of them would have given up but Will is determined to be with her and he does whatever it is possible. I believe that it would be better if Colleen Hoover left Will's and Lake's story as it was in Slammed. We already know how she feels about Will so changing it up and writing from his POV was absolutely necessary because we got to see his perspective from the beginning. The goods do not need to be in their original packaging however in a sellable condition, and at your own cost and risk.
But his refusal to let this relationship die and his determination to do whatever it takes to bring Lake back to him made this a story of strength rather than simply a story of a relationship funk. When Will and Lake's relationship is tested (in a totally contrived way I might add), Lake - after giving him the silent treatment for a few days - tells him that she just needs time to think about their relationship. I hope that that is true because I love these two stories so much, and I think that there is more to explore in the lives of some of the other characters introduced through this story. But if you love someone - anyone, bf, friend, whatever - you have to respect their feelings, even if what they are feeling is hate for your dumb ass. She climbs out from under me and sits up on her knees as I roll onto my back and remain on the floor.
I got the feeling like the first story was created in the author's mind for years and Point of Retreat in months. The sale of customised goods or perishable goods, sealed audio or video recordings, or software, which has been opened. Very YA, it took me back to those times every girl has when you have that first special moment with a boy. Despite my reservations about Slammed, I was intrigued about where Hoover would take these characters as they tackled their new independence, responsibilities and burgeoning relationship.
A couple I wanted to deck in the face for being fuck faces and then a couple I just wanted to hug the whole time because they were too awesome!
I live the way she talked and how she is just so frank with people and give them what they deserve and how at the same time she was vulnerable to the bullies.
