Book Trailer: http://toughcriticbookreviews.blogspo...

So I promised myself I wouldn't use some cheesy play on the word slammed, but daaaaaamn this book not only slammed me right out of my book slump but slammed me into total Colleen Hoover submission!! I confess I wasn't slammed right away. In fact, I was devistated. Utterly disappointed and totally convinced this was going to be another generic romance that happens way too quickly....

I was wrong! Wrong. Wrong. WRONG!!! The turning point for me was the plot shocker and shock me it did. My mouth was slammed wide open with complete surprise. I love it when I don't see it coming. The story was transformed into a heartshattering, heartbreaking, and passionate story of love, loss, turmoil and a whole lot of other stuff. It was an emotional rollercoaster gone wild!!!

This is usually where I talk about the characters I loved, didn't love, or loved to hate, but I can't. I loved them all. You don't just fall for Layken and Will's relationship you fall for every single one! Her relationship with her mom, her brother. Will's relationship with his brother...Relationship-fest 2012!!!! I'm in love...with EVERYONE!!

I instantly dove right into Point of Retreat without even coming up for air. I laughed, I cried, I became sexual frustrated!! I never saw this series coming, but it slammed into me with such force all I can say is read the book!!

YOU'LL LOVE IT!! Guaranteed ;-)


Up All Night Book Addict Both of these are really good books!


Lindsey You are so right! I read this book in 24 hours! There was something so endearing and special about it that made it addicting! I'm getting ready to buy Point of Retreat right now on my kindle. I had no idea there was a second book until I reached the end of Slammed! So excited!


Up All Night Book Addict A third to come out eventually. Cant wait!

LOL! No kidden! What the hell was I thinking?? After Point of Retreat, I'm on to Avoiding Commitment. Avoiding "Avoiding Commitment" sounds like another smack-able offense!

Hail Wow, your book trailer for this one is just AMAZING!!!

Thanks :-)


Jamie great trailer!!!!


Arwen Shoemaker Sorry, I must disagree. Lake was totally annoying and immature. Will was almost swoon-worthy but he was annoying too. - with his hot and cold, and he showed some lack of responsibility and maturity regarding Lake, school / and or/his job, and other things that were separate from him parenting his brother, with he seem pretty mature about, and their relationship seemed realistic. I liked her mom and the little boys, but the other characters were not impressive and the whole thing just did not WOW me.
