Big News!! And... CELEBRATION GIVEAWAY!!


Have you heard about THE FABULOUS Slammed Series??!! By the SPECTACULARLY TALENTED author COLLEEN HOOVER?! 


Yes! 

No! 


Well... 


Those who haven't WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?! Those who have and READ IT. Pat yourself on the back. LOL. Those who haven't here is the summary of the book and MY REVIEW so you understand the urgency of reading it.
 

Slammed (Slammed, #1) Point of Retreat (Slammed #2)


Summary: 

Slammed 

Following the unexpected death of her father, 18-year-old Layken is forced to be the rock for both her mother and younger brother. Outwardly, she appears resilient and tenacious, but inwardly, she's losing hope.
 

Enter Will Cooper: The attractive, 21-year-old new neighbor with an intriguing passion for slam poetry and a unique sense of humor. Within days of their introduction, Will and Layken form an intense emotional connection, leaving Layken with a renewed sense of hope.

Not long after an intense, heart-stopping first date, they are slammed to the core when a shocking revelation forces their new relationship to a sudden halt. Daily interactions become impossibly painful as they struggle to find a balance between the feelings that pull them together, and the secret that keeps them apart.  

Point of Retreat

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.’

This poem will basically express how I felt after finishing this lovely fantabulous book. 

Handful of Insights

Pierced into my heart

tore me apart 
left overwrought 
messy case of
emotional dose 


I cried and cried 
an ocean
no scratched that
                                  a Lake

My aching pieces of 
heart 
lying lifelessly
with my balls 
of tissues 
all over the floor

Made me realize

That I have been
carving 
               
and carving 
                                     pumpkins all my life 

That I never 

          Ever. 

Put emphasis 

              on life
all I ever did was 
carry on 
about all the obstacles in life
Dragging my feet 
                          along 

Made me stop and think 

What have I been doing 
ALL 
       MY 
              Life 

Question EVERYTHING 

That I did

I always did 
But I kept admonished

myself thinking 
I don't have answers 
Why should I keep 
circling
the issue when all I will get 
is a huge painful 
KILLER headache

When ever I needed advice 

I looked up 
             down 
left 
     right 
Didn't see anyone standing 
Hanging around 
To say 
I am here 
             For you 


I didn't realize 

that God was telling me 
Wait 
Be patient 
I am sending some advice 
In the form 
of 
Slammed 
and 
Point of Retreat
