Some men are just better when they’re bold.
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?
Brysen is Dovie’s friend, she is nice and she will do everything for her sister, Karsen. Her mother is depressive and alcoholic, her father is workaholic and never at home. Brysen is back to the family house but she will have some problem.
Race is Dovie’s brother and Bax’s best friend. Since Novak death, he’s the boss of The Point, he’s a bad boy with a really big heart, he doesn’t want to be here but he thinks it’s best for the town if he’s the man in charge. I am agreeing with him.
Like all Jay Crownover books the two characters will love each other’s and it’s not a bad thing. The relation between Brysen and Race is very intense, the attraction is really amazing, they are two people who can be different but aren’t. Brysen is not poor but she’s not rich, she suffers because of her family and The Point totally could be her home. Race was a rich boy from The Hill but now he’s a rich boy from The Point. He suffers because of his family (see not different) and The Point is his home. He’s good in the inside and even if he must take hard decisions, he would do whatever to protect the people he loves, Dovie, Bax and Brysen.
For me, it was not a surprise to read this book and it’s not what I ask when I’m reading Jay’s books. I want unconditional love, dark characters and I want hot and sexy boys. Better when he’s bold give me all of that and it’s great.
Some part of the books with Booker and Karsen made me laugh, I think karsen is a very mature girl even if she’s sixteen. She says real good things to Brysen and Race and I like her character. Dovie is here in the book, not a lot but for an important moment. I like the fact that she is strong and she knows the risk of living with a bad boy. Bax is a real bad boy, he’s protective with Dovie but with The Point too.
The story is well written and it’s nice to read book about real bad boys, Jay Crownover is a big woman full of talent, she’s the best to make me swoon and I love her for that.
I can’t wait to read Titus story and maybe knew more about Nassir and Booker.
