The second in Jay Crownover’s The Point series goes LIVE at midnight tonight, and today I have my review for you, along with a giveaway!! Check it out and pre-order, to make sure it hits your kindle as soon as it releases!
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jay Crownover, comes the second book in a combustible new series, Welcome to the Point, that is sexier, darker, and better than ever.
There’s a difference between a bad boy and a boy who is bad. . . . Welcome to the Point.
In a dark and broken kingdom, a ruler has be fearless to control the streets and the ruthless people who run them. Race Hartman is just bold enough, just smart enough, and just lost enough to wear the crown. Places like The Point will always have bad things and bad people, but the man in control of all that badness can minimize the devastation. Race has a plan, but can he prevent total annihilation without destroying himself?
Brysen Carter has always seen the real Race—a guy too pretty, too smooth, and way too dangerous. Basking in his golden glow is very tempting, but Brysen knows she’ll eventually get burned. She has enough problems without the risky danger and mayhem that comes with a guy like Race. Too bad Brysen faces a threat close to home that might be more dangerous than anything The Point has ever produced.. And the only person interested in keeping her safe is the one man she can’t allow herself to have.
Sometimes being bold is the only way to stay alive. But can she let Race save her life . . . if it means losing herself to him?
I’m beginning to think that it’s impossible for Jay Crownover to release a book, and not completely take me over. With how much I’ve come to love this author’s Marked Men series, I admittedly get a little nervous when starting a book in this new series, but Crownover works her magic every time, and leaves me desperate for more.
I was definitely excited to head back to The Point, and this time around get to know the king of bad, Race. He made some really (how many times will the following word appear in my review this time around?) bad choices in Bax and Dovie’s book, so having the chance to get a more in-depth look at this man was something that I craved the minute I finished book #1.
In Better When He’s Bold, I loved seeing Race walk right along the line of right and wrong; you never knew for sure which way he would take things, as he fought the internal battle of being a good guy who has to do bad things to not only survive, but to keep the real bad guys from destroying his “kingdom.” I loved seeing the development of his relationship with his leading lady, Brysen. She was the perfect woman to stand by his side, and help him run The Point.
I loved the intrigue, the suspense, the storyline that had me on the edge of my seat, and kept me turning the pages. I loved the characters – Bax and Dovie!!!! – and how the author already has me greedy for Titus’ book, which is coming up next. I loved that I hung on every word of this story, and never felt like any part of it was unnecessary. I devoured it all, and was once again left desperate for more.
I will never tire of delving heart first in to this author’s work.
