Review Tour: Review and Giveaway: Better When He's Bold by Jay Crownover



About BETTER WHEN HE’S BOLD:
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jay Crownover, comes the second book in a combustible new series, Welcome to the Point, that is sexier, darker, and better than ever.

There’s a difference between a bad boy and a boy who is bad. . . . Welcome to the Point.

In a dark and broken kingdom, a ruler has 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 the real Race—a guy too pretty, too smooth, and way too dangerous. Basking in his golden glow is very tempting, but Brysen knows she’ll eventually get burned. She has enough problems without the risky danger and mayhem that comes with a guy like Race. Too bad Brysen faces a threat close to home that might be more dangerous than anything The Point has ever produced.. And 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?

Review:
Jay Crownover is one of the few authors on my auto-buy list. She has a way of storytelling that completely immerses you into the world she has created. Not that you'd actually want to live in the Point.

"Some men are impossible to ignore. It's like everyone else around them is moving in slow motion, like everyone else is painted in black and white and he's the only spot of color; the only thing moving in the room. Race Hartman was that kind of man."

Race Hartman wants to rule the Point. He's picking up right where Novak left off, better the devil you know and all that. He's super smart, driven and is willing to do whatever he has to, to get what he wants. Something else he wants? Brysen.

“This” - he pointed a finger between him and me as he pulled open the car door- "is happening. Maybe not now because it isn’t a good time for you, and maybe not later because I might not be around all that long, but at some point in between, sooner or later, it’s going down. Be ready for it, Brysen." 

Brysen Carter lives between the Hill and the Point. And that kind of describes her life, living between good and bad. She had to move home to help with her younger sister because her parents are useless. She doesn't want to be attracted to Race. She wants to finish college, and get on with her life, and Race doesn't fit in to her plans.

Someone is after Brysen, sending her texts and hanging around her work. Trusting Race to keep her safe is the easy part, keeping her heart out of it? Not so easy.

“I take care of my own, Brysen. Like it or not, that includes you.” 

We got to see some of our favorites again Bax and Dovie (yay!) Titus, Nassir (who I like a whole lot better than the first book) and if the first two books in this series have taught us anything, the next one will be explosive. 

* Jay has said, and I quote, "I decided just now that I am writing car sex or rather sex in the car into every Point book from here on out." NOTHING ELSE NEEDS TO BE SAID.

“You know that as long as the kingdom is where you’re at, whatever that looks like is where I want to be, Race. I don’t think it’s a long shot; I think it’s pretty even odds with you, Bax, Titus, and even Nassir there to fight for it.”
