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.
*Note I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*
Jay Crownover is amazing. All of her books have these super hot guys that just make me melt. I don't know why, but I love her big tattooed tough guys. Swoon. Bax is no different. Better When He's Bad is the first in a new series, Welcome to The Point. The guys are just as hot and awesome as her Marked Men series, just with a different situation and a little more trouble. Man I loved Bax. Right from the start I was just like yes! Bax is amazing. He has just gotten out of jail to find that his best friend, Race, is missing. Five years ago Race and Bax would work together to steal cars, but then Bax gets busted. He needs to find Race to make sure he is okay and to find out what happened that night. The head bad guy in town is also looking for Race, and will be after Bax to come back and work for him soon.
Pretty instantly Bax finds Dovie in his search for Race. Dovie lives in the bad part of town where Bax is from. It is pretty easy for him to find her info and break into her place. He really is not all on the up and up, but I don't really care. I feel like he can do whatever he wants. Really Bax comes across as a good guy but he is has been in bad situations. It was up to him to figure out a way to provide for him and his mom, hence the stealing. He is good at it and can make enough to take care of his mom.
Dovie was annoying to me. If Bax would not have been so amazing I wouldn't have enjoyed this book as much as I did. Bax was enough to put this book on my re-read list. Dovie seemed like that annoying younger sister who wants to hang out with her cool older brother and his friends when they are in high school. She seemed like she was 12 to me. I didn't really like her, she never really grew on me, but she wasn't the worst either. She kept tagging along and trying to follow Bax who was trying to find Race. She was just...she kept saying how she knows how to keep herself safe in the bad parts of town but from what I saw I didn't really believe that. Sure she is better than some completely naive little girl, but she seemed to make poor decision a lot of the time. The first time she follows Bax trying to help find Race she ends up pissing off the people Bax thinks might know where he is. Yeah that is real smart Dovie. Good job. I can see where you could be such a help...
So most of the story is Bax and Dovie trying to find Race and falling for each other. Dovie grows on Bax and man was it hot. Bax is...yes. He takes control and I just would let him do whatever. So hot. Dovie is the innocent girl, but not for long. There is some drama, some secrets revealed, some tense situations, but through it all Bax was amazing. I loved the ending, loved how he ended up. I am glad he didn't change into a completely different person. He still might not be 100% on the up and up all the time, but he is just such a good, sweet guy behind his tough exterior. Loved him. This will go on my re-read list just so I can have more time with him.
