{Blog Tour + Review + Giveaway} Better When He's Bad by Jay Crownover @InkSlingerPR @JayCrownover

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jay Crownover returns with a heart-stopping new series… Welcome to the Point.

There’s a difference between a bad boy and a boy who’s bad . . . meet Shane Baxter.
Sexy, dark, and dangerous, Bax isn’t just from the wrong side of the tracks, he is the wrong side of the tracks. A criminal, a thug, and a brawler, he’s the master of bad choices, until one such choice landed him in prison for five years. Now Bax is out and looking for answers, and he doesn’t care what he has to do or who he has to hurt to get them. But there’s a new player in the game, and she’s much too innocent, much too soft…and standing directly in his way.
Dovie Pryce knows all about living a hard life and the tough choices that come with it. She’s always tried to be good, tried to help others, and tried not to let the darkness pull her down. But the streets are fighting back, things have gone from bad to worse, and the only person who can help her is the scariest, sexiest, most complicated ex-con The Point has ever produced.
Bax terrifies her, awakening feelings she never thought she’d have for a guy like him. But it doesn’t take Dovie long to realize . . . some boys are just better when they’re bad.

{Rating} 4/5 -- I really liked it!

"There are very few things that can kill the buzz of postsex mellowness." (page 1, line 1)
Welcome to the Point indeed. Better When He's Bad is full of action, passion, betrayal, redemption, love, sacrifice, mystery and twists I didn't see coming.

Bax is definitely not a traditional hero. He's rough edges and bad news and someone you should run from. He's brutally honest - even when it's painful - and never pretends to be anyone other than who he is. But he's incredibly loyal and devoted to those he loves.

Dovie has had a hard life. She has lived the harsh reality of life in the Point but she has managed to remain soft and caring and wants to help kids. She could come off as a little naive in her relationship with Bax but she does have her eyes open. She knows the kind of guy he is and expect him to change or try to change him.

The Point felt like its own character, how it defines people, changes people, unites them. It's a place that teaches you to survive, to take happiness where you find it because it probably won't last.

I'm a huge fan of Jay Crownover, of her characters, imaginative storylines, dialog and descriptions, the way she draws you into the world she has created. Better When He's Bad is a fabulous first book in a series I'm sure to love as much as her Marked Men series.
