Description

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jay Crownover returns with a heart-stopping new series...Welcome to the Point. There's a difference between a bad boy and a boy who's bad ...meet Shane Baxter. Sexy, dark, and dangerous, Bax isn't just from the wrong side of the tracks, he is the wrong side of the tracks. A criminal, a thug, and a brawler, he's the master of bad choices, until one such choice landed him in prison for five years. Now Bax is out and looking for answers, and he doesn't care what he has to do or who he has to hurt to get them. But there's a new player in the game, and she's much too innocent, much too soft...and standing directly in his way. Dovie Pryce knows all about living a hard life and the tough choices that come with it. She's always tried to be good, tried to help others, and tried not to let the darkness pull her down. But the streets are fighting back, things have gone from bad to worse, and the only person who can help her is the scariest, sexiest, most complicated ex-con The Point has ever produced. Bax terrifies her, awakening feelings she never thought she'd have for a guy like him. But it doesn't take Dovie long to realize ...some boys are just better when they're bad.show more

Favourite Quote: â??Wanting someone is different than needing them.â?? After reading Jay Crownoverâ??s other series â??Marked Menâ??, I knew I would read anything else she wrote! And Iâ??m so glad to say, I loved this book and I think Iâ??m going to love the rest of the series as well! I give this book a 5/5 stars! The plot in this book is definitely grittier than most YA/NA books and it makes this book unique and complete badass! I loved learning all about the Point and all the underground world, it was so interesting, suspenseful and entertaining! There were a few well-situated twists I never saw coming and they helped me keep interested and keep the fast pace of the story. The were a few graphic violence scenes that I felt were done very well and felt realistic. Onto the characters, l love Bax. Just putting that out there. I thought the two sides of his personality were realistic and human. He has a lot of flaws but who doesnâ??t? He was loyal, smart, strong, could be sweet when he wanted to be and so many other things that made it easy to see past the flaws and made him lovable! Then thereâ??s Dovie, who I also loved, she was strong, smart, sassy, kind, funny etc I felt I could relate to her in a lot of ways! The pairs relationship with each other was brilliant, I loved every second of it even through all the ups and downs, the pair were made for each other! Then there was a bunch of side characters like Race, who I was really intrigued by and I canâ??t wait to read his book and thereâ??s Titus who was also great character. Other characters were mostly villains, all of whom I loved to hate! Overall, I loved everything about this book from the plot to the characters and cannot wait to read more about the Point!show more

I received an ARC on behalf of the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!! First of all I can say that Jay Crownover brings us in a world of real Bad boy and she does it well as always. The Point is not a place where anyone wants to live, the place is corrupted and it can get very ugly, very fast. Bax is just out of jail and must find his bestfriend Race. At some point he met Dovie, Raceâ??s sister. Shane Baxter aka Bax is the Bad Boy, he have a tattoo on his face, he is handsome and most of all he is so hot and sexy. He has a bad attitude and love girls, no he likes satisfying his desires when he wants, with whores mostly. Dovie is a good girl but she lived some hard moments in her childhood, her mother did not want her and her father either. But Race came to save her and also bring her in The Point where she meets Bax. Told from dual point of view, this book is full of action, suspense, sexy romance, bad attitude, bad boys, and fight. Itâ??s a book set in criminal world and Bax is the villain who must become the hero to save the people he love. Itâ??s a love story between two breaking people. Jay Crownover has a talent, she manages to make you love her characters even if it is not kind boys and even if they do not make good things or good choices. I love Bax, heâ??s so much tortured, in spite of the fact that he likes his life such as it is, he wants to change but he knows that itâ??s impossible. I like Dovie, sheâ??s sweet, kind and she always want to help young people who havenâ??t a great family. Sheâ??s an angel in a world of crimes, war, slaughter, drugs and whores. I love reading books about people who donâ??t have a great childhood and who do the good choices because the life isnâ??t like this. Every people in the world made some bad choices at a moment in the life and itâ??s great. Jay tells us with this book that evil is everywhere, that youâ??re rich or poor you can make bad things and donâ??t regret it. As to put a contract on the head of your illegitimate daughter or selling drugs and stealing cars. I like the sexual tension between Bax and Dovie, the evolution of the relation between Bax and Titus and the one between Dovie and Race. I canâ??t wait to read Better when heâ??s bold mostly because I want to know who is the man who send text to Brysen and what will happen to Race. This book is awesome and Jay you Rocks.show more
