Dignity (The Breaking Point Book 2) Kindle Edition
I knew that most people took one look at the ink and the impossibly big and strong body it covered and decided I was a brawler…a bruiser…a beast. However, I was hardwired to be a thinker, not a fighter.
I should have chosen to use my brain and talents to be one of the good guys, a hero, a man with dignity and worth.
I turned my back on dignity and sold my soul to the highest bidder, deciding to dance with the devil, instead.
I couldn’t figure out how to help myself, so there was zero chance I knew how to save someone else.
That someone else was Noe Lee. She was the unkempt, unruly thief who was just as smart as I was and twice as street savvy. She was annoyingly adorable beneath the dirt and grime, and she was in trouble. In way over her head, I told myself it wasn’t my job to keep her from drowning. In the Point, it was sink or swim, and I wasn’t the designated lifeguard on duty.
I shut the door in her face, but now she’s gone…vanished…disappeared without a trace. It took less than a second for me to realize that I wanted her back.
When a woman comes along that melts all the frozen, hard things you’re made of; you’ll do anything you have to, to bring her home.
What you see is not always what you get…and with a man like me, what you get is more than anyone ever bargained for.

This one has been a long time coming, once again we are back in the Point and it's as always a shyt show. Stark the massive inked computer genius has been in the series since the beginning and of course we really saw him in Honor when the Devil went looking for his mate. Stark is now even more firmly entrenched in the family's games and on the Devil's payroll. Noe Lee is a new one, we did see her before in Honor because she has the same campaign going as does Honor except she goes about it a little differently. She's a hacker who aides women who want to leave the Point.
I absolutely loved this one because even though the Point has no real geographic location it can be where ever the 'bad' side of town is in any state, we know very little about the whole town. This story really fleshed out the town and made us more aware of how large an infrastructure the underground criminal class truly is. For me Lee was my favorite character, she was well written and awesomely fleshed out as a woman and a character. Even though she was scared & she had plenty of reason to be, she still fought anyway she could to aide those in worse situations than her, even if she did it from the shadows. I loved that Stark shared a similar mission and that he was a hero on the low.
I really enjoyed that they lived in Race's fortress, and that we got to see so much of the original group in this one, even though it was really about Lee and Stark's journey and their fight, both individual and together. I loved that all this time later Titus is still fighting to clean up the city. The romance in the story wasn't as front and center for me, even though it was good. I liked that they didn't immediately fall for each other, they danced around it and fell in like with each other's brains and genius abilities first. I also liked that even as they discovered that they were better together than apart they weren't immediately healed by being int he relationship, it's something they acknowledged would take time.
For Stark being a genius carried a heavy burden,m one that cost him so much. Reading that it makes me understand why some parents don't push their kids into the special programs because if this is how they handle it, my gad no. I wasn't expecting the ending because in the last few chapters secrets just came tumbling out and I can't wait to see the full fall out of all of that in the next book. I really enjoyed those ending scenes as well because it was beautiful to see them all together and know where they were coming from and knowing that they shouldn't have these happy moments and yet they do. It's beautiful to read and see how this found family has expanded. Noe Lee was a pretty bad ass who knew how hide from even Nasser when he was looking, and even in a full blown panic she was vicious.
One of the few things I do have to call this series out for is that this is known as an urban city, and in all their interactions there are few to little with characters that are minorities. Also you live int he underbelly of the city and beyond Nassir and Lee you have no minorities as friends?? More of than not in reality the reverse is the truth, whites are truly the minorities in the 'ghettos' and 'hoods'. I just wish we had more characters of color within the main group. Especially because Bax had been to jail, he didn't meet no friends in there the whole time?? I would really love to learn more about Benny and who he was fighting for. Even if it's just a novella.
Once again the "bad" guys take aim at the Hill and bring down terror on their own. Secrets shake out, pasts are revealed and we are pulled under by the grime, but Hope blooms here. It's messy and it's revenge at it's best.
I loved it. I highly recommend.
Happy Reading my loves,
The story line in this one was somehow more poignant for me. I have loved all of The Breaking Point stories, but this one has stuck with me more than Honor or Avenged. The underlying subject of this story is hard to forget and yet daily these children, these lost are forgotten. We block out the dirty that is all around us to keep our own souls clean but in doing so we leave so many abandoned to societies worst. There was something about Dignity that made The Point a real place for me. When I had read Honor and Avenged The Point was a very abstract idea of a broken dirty city full of bad men, both ones that try to do good even if they have to do bad to get there and those that just plain do bad, but in Dignity everything became real to me. I could finally think of The Point as a place that isn't some fantastical version of a broken city like Detroit. The fact is that when we are looking away things like what are taking place in Dignity are actually happening in our world. It's not a fictional theory it is reality and it hit me like a battering ram while reading this book.
I can safely say that this is one of my favorite of Jay Crownover's books. The couple gave me everything I could want in character development, romance, angst, it was all there. No jackass hero and no simpering heroine. I loved the connection between Dignity, Honor and Avenged and the connection to our original Point family, through Titus King. I loved seeing this group of people becoming a family, even when they don't completely like each other, but isn't that the way it is with family? Nassar is always entertaining and frightening but the father figure he is becoming has me cheering for this group more and more, each book has gotten better for me and I can't wait for the next one.
Dignity can be read as a standalone but I highly suggest reading the previous books, particularly Avenged first if you can. You won't be completely lost if you are unable to but having the entire picture will help. If you are a Jay Crownover fan make sure you don't miss this one, Stark and Noe are bound to make a place in your heart!

As always with Jay a brilliant character driven
book with a emotive plot that ended with taking the power back and making a difference (in only a way you could do in the point)
Probably one of my favourite Jay books out of all them. Stark and Noe were perfect for each other. There's this one line that stood out for me as it doesn't fit in the point whatsoever but suited them so well so early on - "Snow and Noe. We rhyme" Loved it!!
