Better When He's Bold

Book: Better When He’s Bold (The Point #2)
Author: Jay Crownover

Summary: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: I think what I love the most about Jay Crownover's books is that the “hero” of the story is never what you expect them to be and are they nowhere close to being a “typical” male role they are the BAD bad boys. I like how different they are and that makes the feel of the story so different from an others that I have read. I also like how she deals with situations in her stories, like poverty, stealing, sex trafficking, gambling and so much more when a lot of other authors would stay as far away from these situations as possible but Jay adds them and is realistic about what's going on and makes them a true part of the story. I also think that not only are the characters strong in this story but so is the general plot line and it sucks you in and makes you want to be in the world with these people. They feel so real and like they are your best friend or in some cases worst enemy. I love that the story is so different but at the core the idea of falling in love, having a family and living life is still relevant. I think that if people gave this book and series they would love it as much as I do!
