Editorial Reviews

Review

“Real danger and dark romance mix in this combustible series by Jay Crownover. Prepare to be wowed!” (--Katy Evans, New York Times bestselling author)

“Laced with that distinctive raw edge, Crownover dials the heat up ten notches, giving her readers a delicious taste of a true bad boy.” (--K.A. Tucker, author of Five Ways to Fall)

“Full of action that will keep you on the edge of your seat, Better When He’s Bad is a sexy thrill ride.” (--Jennifer L. Armentrout, #1 New York Times bestselling author)

From the Back Cover

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 was 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.

I loved loved loved this book. It totally lives up to its title. Bax is definitely better when he's bad. I am so glad Jay Crownover did not try to turn Bax into a good guy in the end who does everything above the line, because it would not have worked. I loved Dovie. She was raised in the middle of hell but did not let it take anything from her. She continued to do what was right and do good for others. She never once tried to change Bax, she just reminded him he was worthy and that he mattered, what more could a guy ask for in a woman. There were so many awesome quotes in this book, too many to rewrite. This story had everything that makes a great read... Sex, love, violence, thugs, sex, bad-ass cars, loyalty, friendship, deception, angst, twists, did I mention sex. I absolutely can not wait for Race and Brysen's story.

Review: 5 Amazing stars!

When I heard that one of my favorite authors was releasing a new series in midst of a current series, going BANANAS in anticipation is putting it mildly for me! I read the excerpt at the back of Nash, the author’s latest Marked Men novel, a few months ago and I have been counting down the days. So after consuming the novel on release day, one word can best describe this novel: OUTSTANDING. And PHENOMENOL. Ok two words.

The story takes place in “the Point”, a fictitious inner city, and it really highlights the gritty lives of the people living there. Danger is high, money is scarce and morale is low. It sets the scene of the harsh realities and bleak day to day lives of the characters - the “quintessential wrong side of the tracks.” In this novel we meet Dovie Pryce. A fiery, protective redhead in search of her missing brother. She is kind, compassionate and despite living within darkness and struggle, she always puts those she loves first in her life – even if she knows it’s dangerous.

Enter Shane Baxter. Her brother’s best friend, a just-released ex con and a well known criminal - her complete opposite. With nowhere to turn, Dovie is forced to ask Bax for help in finding her missing brother. She knows she is in over her head in dealing with him but desperate times call for desperate measures and who else would help her navigate the gritty, mean streets of the Point but the Baddest of them all?

“This was a young man who has seen more – lived more- in his short years than most people did in a lifetime.

I really really wanted to fall in love with this book like I did Jay's Marked Men series. I just felt like the inner dialogue was too much and not enough interaction between the characters. I know that there has to be background information given, but in this book it was almost too much. All of Jay's books I have read in one day and this one took me three. I kept putting it down because I felt like there was just too much extra information that didn't add to the story line. Also, I know that she is all about Bax being "bad" but seriously?! Do you have to mention it every five minutes? With all the hype of how "bad" this guy and his story was, I didn't really feel like it was that big of a deal. I enjoyed the book but definitely had to wade through some useless background information and lots of unnecessary inner dialogue. I would recommend it but definitely not something you have to read right this minute.

On a side note, the blurb of the next book Better When He's Bold definitely seems more like Jay's creative writing--drama, angst, suspense, romance. I definitely can't wait to read that!

I loved this! LOVED! There was a raw intensity throughout that had me hooked.

Excellent story and flow. Right from the beginning all these little intriguing details were laid out making me want more. Everything unfolded perfectly. I loved these very real and gritty characters. There is so much detail and depth, I was completely pulled into their complex lives and harsh reality.

I had a love-hate relationship with Shane Baxter. Not a nice guy at all. Shane was an amazingly well developed, complex character and he had all these layers and it was fantastic absorbing all the details. The guy is bad and makes no apologies but there is this growth that takes place that makes your heart melt and there are moments of redemption that made me root for him. The more I get to know Shane, the sexier and more intriguing he becomes. By the end, I freaking loved him! Dovie, I loved her too. She is strong, fiercely loyal, and self reliant. A fighter. She does what she has to to to survive in a positive way. Bax and Dovie together had some really hot times but it was a building attraction, not instant. I felt so real, like it truly grew.

I liked the element of mystery about where Race was a lot. The secondary characters were excellent and played into everything really well. It was an elaborate, detailed world and I could picture all in my head. There was a huge ‘I did not see that coming’ moment towards the end. It was so intense. I was choked up and holding my breath. The entire story was intense and the ending was incredible!

This story was written in both Bax and Dovie’s POVs and I looked forward to both. Normally I have a favorite when reading but they were both such strong characters, I couldn’t get enough of either.
