Welcome to the Point...
In a dark and broken kingdom, a ruler has to 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 her best friend's brother for what he is--too pretty, too smooth, and way too dangerous to touch. Basking in Race's golden glow is very tempting, but Brysen knows she'd eventually get burned.
When she starts receiving threatening texts and someone tries to take her out in parking lot, 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?
Jay Crownover is one of my favorite authors. The quality of her stories and characters is unparalleled, and this book is no exception. Race is an very intriguing character. He comes from money and until he meets Bax, lives a life of privilege, yet he chooses to turn his back on that life after discovering his half sister. At his heart, Race is a good man, but he chooses to do bad things, not because he's bad, but because he hopes to minimize the collateral damage. It's so contradictory and it's fascinating to watch him walk this line, knowing that at any moment he could fall off the edge. Race's story is slightly less dramatic than Bax's, but it's still a page turner and proves that you have to be a special breed to make it in The Point. Definitely worth the read.
Coming up next in the series if Better When He's Brave, Titus' story, due out in August. I'm super excited for this one!
