I may be a tad bias on this review but only because I have a serious girl crush on Jay. Her first novel I read, Rule… the dude’s face just kept coming up everywhere from my Amazon Recommend’s lists to my friends Goodreads lists and so finally I said fuck it and haven’t looked back. Jay captured me with Rule. She broke my heart and stitched it back together between the lines. I have since read everything she’s published and will continue to do so. So again I may be bias because Jay is one of my favorite romance novelists.
Better When He’s Brave is book 3 in her Welcome to the Point series. This is a standalone series, but trust me it’s best to read them in order.
“She was going to be my downfall. She was going to be my corruption and my vice. She was going to be my addiction and my compulsion and I was still going to fall headlong into her knowing the landing was going to be rough for both of us.”
The Point. A place where people go, but nobody ever really leaves. It’s dirty and dark, drenched in underground crime but in the center of it all sits a man trying to keep it clean. Titus King. Police officer —–> Hello uniform! Big —–> could easily pin you against the wall and have his name whimpering from your lips. Good guy —-> Wait what?! Okay so he’s mostly a good guy, his heart is in all of the right places and his hands are soft and welcoming, his voice soothing. He’s probably one of my favorite male characters of Jay’s. He’s complex in a way that doesn’t get annoying but simple enough that he wears his heart on his sleeve even though I’m sure he would disagree with me.
“She might look like a dream and taste like dessert, but I knew there was a lot of tart underneath that pretty outer shell.”
Reeve Black. Ruthless, beautiful and just enough criminal to knock Titus King off his good guy axis. Reeve is a powerhouse of a character. She’s manipulative but at the same time very naive. She goes to Titus for help righting a wrong and saving the people he loves, but she’s also trying to redeem herself. Her mistakes haunt her and that makes her dangerous.
Overall I loved the crap out of this book. The beginning started off a tad slow for me but once I got through the first two chapters I powered through it. Can’t wait to read the next one!
