Review

Praise for Better When He's Bad:
 "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

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?

Format: Paperback
Better When He's Bold is the second book in the Welcome to the Point series. Sure, you could get away with reading this as a standalone without reading Better When He's Bad first, but there are certain actions and plotlines that build from book one to book two. The beginning has enough summarizing from book one to satisfy a new reader, but if you want to get the full treatment on the building storyline of The Point, I'd consider reading book one first.

The storyline picks up not long after the events of book one. Race is the new "ruler" of The Point, but trying to do things his way. But new leadership does not come without its opponents. And running numbers does not happen without bloodshed. But even with the bad all around him, Race still manages to shine like the golden boy he is, scars and all.

Brysen is not without her own share of heartache and hassle. Managing a deteriorating family, trying to protect her sister, working, and still manage to graduate on time doesn't leave her with much free time. And no time for dating, much to the annoyance of the boys around her. But somehow Race, her best friend's brother, whom she's been trying to deny her attraction to, manages to get closer to her due to her frustrating circumstances.

In Better When He's Bad, we got Bax and Dovie's love story. What was so fun about them was how very different they were from each other, both physically and character-wise, and that those differences made them the perfect match. Here we get Race and Brysen's love story, but this time around they are more alike than different. But it is their similarities - whether be background, family, looks, intellect, sexuality - that help them ground each other from the craziness in their lives.

I didn't like this book as much as Better When He's Bad, the first book in the Point series, or the Marked Men series either for that matter (ugh I just love the Marked Men!) There was a lot of overlap from the storyline of the first book and since it wasn't fresh in my mind, I found it a bit hard to follow. Still an entertaining book, Better When He's Bold features Jay Crownover's trademark bad boy with a soft spot for a better woman. Definitely still worth a read.

Each time I read one of Jay Crownover’s books I find myself wanting to shout from the rooftops about how much I loved it. Better When He’s Bold was most certainly no exception. While I will always have a soft spot for the guys in her Marked Men series, it is her boys from The Point and their raw edginess that makes my heart race. I love the grit and realness of this series. Race and Brysen’s story was full of suspense, steam, and intensity. Crownover is skilled in creating dangerous bad boys and feisty heroines who never fail to draw me in and keep me on my toes in anticipation of what is to come.

Race Hartman is a smooth criminal walking a fine line. Highly intelligent and full of natural charisma, Race has both the power and plan to keep control of The Point and minimize the destruction. He is bold, brave, and knows what he wants. Brysen Carter is his younger sister’s best friend. Although she is drawn to him, she knows getting involved with Race could lead to serious trouble, especially while she is carrying the entire weight of her family on her shoulders. However, when Brysen finds herself in danger, Race may be the only person who can help her. The question is whether or not he is worth the risk.

Having made some questionable choices in Better When He’s Bad, I was eager to learn more about Race and see how he operates. Even though he was involved in illegal activities, Race actually had good intentions and was trying to do what was best for The Point. I have always loved how protective Race was of Dovie, and I liked seeing that side of him with Brysen, too. She brought out a softness in him that was quite endearing. What I especially liked about Race was that he was upfront with his feelings for Brysen.

Race and Brysen continue this series forward. Race is drawn to Brysen and cannot help himself from trying to win her over. Brysen is struggling after moving back home and trying to help raise her 16 year old sister. Brysen's world has been sent off-kilter and she doesn't understand how Race can do the things he does. Race thinks that Brysen is too good for him and just tries to help her out. Brysen spends most of the book feeling sorry for herself, wanting accolades for her "sacrifices" and wants everyone to acknowledge what she has given up. I had a hard time relating to her since she came off spoiled and wanting her life to go back to being easy. Race owns who he is and what he does and I found myself respecting his character. Brysen has a hard time believing who her stalker may be and doesn't even try to find out who or why someone is doing it, just puts her head in the sand instead of dealing with it. When it comes out as to who it is and why, I understood the motivation but not what he was trying to accomplish. When all of the facts start coming together, even her 16 year old sister grasped the situation better than she did. Paying for the sins of others really is a hard pill for Brysen to swallow and I was happy to see the change in her after it all came to a head. There is a lot thrown at both Race and Brysen throughout this book and was a good read. Will be interesting to see what happens in the next book since Bax is going to have a hard time letting Titus bring Reeve into the picture again after what she did to Dovie. Can't wait!!!
