Losing Hope


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…


I’m not a massive fan of the New Adult genre, but I really do enjoy Colleen Hoover’s writing. This series so far has been more focused on the emotional side of relationships, instead of just being about sex. I really enjoyed Slammed when I read it last year, I immediately bought the next two in the series, but I’m only just getting around to reading Point of Retreat. I think it took its time to get going and kind of went around in circles. I’m still intrigued enough to continue the series though.

Slammed is the first book in the series, it introduces Lake and Will, a couple that have a strong attraction, but shouldn’t be together. I don’t want to spoil it, as I think it’s best to go into series like this without knowing much about it. Point of Retreat is the next book in the series. I enjoyed Point of Retreat, but it wasn’t as good as the series debut. I think Slammed was much more intense, and that’s what I like in a book like this. I do think that Point of Retreat is an emotional read with some great characters.

Point of Retreat is told from Will’s perspective. I liked reading from Will’s point of view, but I would have liked to have heard Lake’s side of the story too. Point of Retreat didn’t quite match Slammed for me, but it’s a decent read and I’m invested enough in the characters to read the last book in the series.

Would I recommend it?:

  1. I’ve read two of Colleen Hoover’s books – Hopeless and Losing Hope. I liked them both a lot, but I have to be in the mood for all the drama. I’ve heard good things about Slammed. I’ll have to make time for it. I’m glad you liked this, if not as much as Slammed.

    • Yes, I agree, Colleen Hoover’s books are full of drama. I liked it enough to continue with the series and that says it all to me. 🙂 I hope you enjoy the series when you do get around to it.
