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, but it doesn’t take Dovie long to realize that some boys are just better when they’re bad.
I felt in love with this book right away, just like every other Jay Crownover book. She is one of those people who writes a book that when you read it and it’s an emotional scene, you actually feel the emotions she writes about. It’s a glorious emotional roller coaster. Also the fact that it’s another book involving a tatted up bad boy almost sort of a hero.
Now Dovie…I really liked her, it might be also because she’s also a redhead and everyone knows we redheads must unite. She is a really genuinely good person who just wants to help others even though her experiences in life have been shitty. She is someone who is completely loyal to the few people she considers family. I definitely would be friends with her in real life. Bax…Bax Bax Bax, even his name is amazing. He is the perfect bad boy, who finds the girl and becomes at least a better person for her. I swooned a lot while reading this book.
I just want to write the rest of this review about Bax but I should probably share some more about this book. Just a bit more about Bax then I’ll move on. I love the way Crownover makes Bax grow throughout this book, it’s just amazing the changes he makes and how Dovie kind of pulls him out of that bad boy shell and makes him show more emotions than just the tough guy act.
The story line for this book was amazing, it kept up with the intensity and there wasn’t a down moment or lull. There was lots of action (wooo) and a lot or romance and sexy scenes (double woo). All of her books are just so emotionally realistic and this one was still not different, I pretty much felt everything they did and let me tell you, my emotions were shot by the end of this…but in a good way.
I cannot wait for the next book in this series to come out and I want you to stop what you’re doing and got read this book right now….and all of her other books to while you’re at it for that matter.
This will probably be the only twitter recommend you ever get from me, but you should go follow Jay on Twitter because every Monday she posts amazing photos of tatted men. You’re welcome.
