Better When He's Brave

Book: Better When He’s Brave (The Point #3)
Author: Jay Crownover

Summary:Titus King sees the world in black and white. Right and wrong. Which is why as a teenager he left behind the only family he’d ever known to make a better life for himself. Now a police detective in one of the worst cities in the country, he can’t deny his life has turned into a million different shades of gray.
The new criminal element in The Point has brought vengeance and destruction right to Titus’s front door, and the difference between right and wrong is nothing compared to keeping those he loves alive. To add to his already strained moral compass, the beautiful and mysterious Reeve Black has made her way back to town, and she might be as dangerous to Titus as the guy trying to destroy the Point because he needs her—in more ways than one.
Reeve knows all about how ruthless this new threat to destroy The Point can be… and instead of running away, she wants to help. She has a lot to repent for and saving the city, plus the hot cop that she hasn’t been able to forget might just be the only way she can finally find some inner peace.
With an entire city poised on the brink of war, Titus and Reeve stand in the crossfire—and it will take two brave souls to fight for the ultimate love.

Review: I love this book!!! Like the plotline and story is totally on point, the descriptions, and writing is amazing, but honestly what makes this story is the characters and the amazing job Jay does in bringing them to life. Reeve is totally not who I expected her to be, especially when we met her in the first book of this series and even in the beginning of this book, but later when you learn more about her and why she does what she does you can’t help but like her and respect her. Then there is Titus a cop trying to do what’s right and live in a black and white world but he grew up in a gray world and still has friends and family living in that world. The emotion behind him and why he does/acts the way he does is what made his character work so well. Plus the tension between Reeve and Titus ……. I could feel the sexual tension between them for so long so when they actually acted on this tension it was ten times hotter because of that! I also find it super funny and perfect for the Point that the hot cop is in a relationship with a strip club manager -  only in the Point!
