About this deal

However, the readable, engaging (though also flawed) quality of Slammed was completely missing in the sequel. 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.

Our Non-Fiction Range includes: Academic, Photography, Audio books, Business, Cook Books, Craft Books, Health and Fitness Books, Mind, Body, Spirit (Tarot). Anyway, this was definitely a perfect sequel to the most amazing, awe-inspiring story I've had the pleasure to experience!What you'll find in the pages of Point of Retreat is nothing but caricatures instead of character development and tired gimmicks instead of plot. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Registered address: Unit 5, Vulcan House Business Centre, Vulcan Road, Leicester, LE5 3EF, United kingdom. I was disappointed with Lake's bahaviour and I think that if the author wouldnt have spent so many pages on their fighting and instead spending more pages on the ending (I needed more details there) I would have given this book 5 stars. I knew after reading the blurb for this book that there was going to be some sort of misunderstanding involving someone from Will's past, and I knew that it was going to be the long lost ex-girlfriend.

The jar of stars from Julia that always seemed so timely and relevant, Gavin and Eddie, the suck and sweet game, the addition of secondary characters Kiersten and Sherry, Will's slam poetry (and the slams from some surprising sources! I get it, he's supposed to be this poetry slam guy who's into words, but it just didn't work for me and kept pulling me out of the story. I can understand waiting the year to have sex as per Lake's mom (which that alone was so silly, but I'll let that go) but it is like he freaked out whenever they got close to hooking up. For further information about your statutory rights, contact your local authority Trading Standards department or consumer advice centre (for example the Citizen's Advice Bureau if you are in the UK).The story seemed like it might be a nice young read and although I was currently trolling for something a little more adult, and a little less YA, I decided to give it a go. Maybe Will mans up, maybe Lake calms down, maybe some shit starts happening other than Will's incessant whining. As I wrote for the first book, this is see life through big pink glasses type of story with every drama you can imagine mixed with it. I was looking for something that would make this book different and unforgettable but :( Nevertheless, I'm still glad I've read and tried my luck with this book/series because I really don't want to miss a single book written by CoHo.

Once again, I am floored by this author's unique ability to make me feel, not only a fan, but an actual part of this story.These next chapters in Will and Layken’s life are told from the perspective of Will, and I just have to say, what a treat! In Hopeless, Sky left no secret unearthed, no feeling unshared and no memory forgotten, but Holder's past remains a mystery. There are so many unnecessary "fillers" that I skipped about 5 or 10 pages at one point and they were still eating dinner. I love how the author integrated lyrics, and poetry throughout the story bringing deeper meaning to an already intensely emotional read.
