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.
HOLY SH*T! Have you met Shane Baxter yet? Dude, you want bad he gives you bad. You can sexy, he gives you sexy. You want HOT, then look no further. This man with his bad boy self makes you want to be bad with him. The title of this book holds so true. It's so much Better When He's Bad.
Dovey & Bax are from the Point. The wrong side of town. When circumstances against their control throw them together, it becomes a kill or be killed situation and there is no one I would rather have on my side then the bad boy Bax. He is loyal, dangerous and scary. He is strong and everything you would want to keep you safe.
Jay Crownover told a outrageously wicked story. I had read her Marked Men series and while they were some bad boys, they were nothing compared to the man we meet in Better When He's Bad. I was loving the personality, the demeanor of our main character Bax. He just threw an energy off of him that screamed sex appeal. I loved that he wasn't afraid to show exactly who he was, no matter who he was in front of, and I loved that he was never willing to back down from anything, be it the enemy, a girl (Dovey) or the one person he never wanted to be like!
Better When He's Bad is the ultimate tale of a bad boy. I can not say enough how much Bax's bad made me want him. If I wasn't already a bad boy lover, this book solidified it for me. I don't want to do into too much detail about this story because the punches just kept coming, but I can't say enough if you're looking for bad, and not just the oh he looks bad, but the bad to your soul, does bad things, and still looks sexy alpha male, then you really really need to check out Bax!
Dovey was a strong willed, awesome heroine as well. She didn't drive me nuts being the whiny typical girl. She stood for her beliefs, didn't give up and didn't let Bax's bad scare her.
Jay Crownover is my new favorite bad boy writer. I finished this book and immediately wanted to pick it right back up and start it again. I can't wait for more from this awesome author and I can't wait to see what else will happen later on when we set foot back in The Point!
