Marissa Not So PNR Mini BannerJay does a great job creating her bad boy who finds the one girl to make him just a little good. We get great characters, action and suspense, a couple of twists, and some hot sexing. I like how she shows us Shane AND Bax, and how they both help Dovie survive The Point. We see the gritty underworld that Bax belongs to and the other bad guys who prey on the city inhabitants. Then, we see sweet Dovie who’s had a hard life growing up but works in a group home to help other kids who’ve lost their parents navigate life. Though her life hasn’t been easy, she hasn’t let that change her core ideals; she is the lightness to Bax’s darkness.

Better When He's Bad kicks off the new Welcome to The Point series from Jay Crownover. Dovie and Bax have some challenges right off the bat. We explore the ups and downs with them and we get the steamy chemistry. Bax is a bad dude, an ex-con and Dovie is a good girl living in a bad spot. It's exciting how Jay paints the scene of this new landscape, which is a departure from the Marked Men in Colorado. ~ Nelle [June 2014]

About This Book

Series Type

From The Publisher


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.

My first foray into the Romance genre came my freshman year in high school English, where the teacher had us all read books from several different genres. So, my first book boyfriend and PnR introduction, if you will, was Richard Merlin, from The Wizard of Seattle. Prior to that, I’d only read Fantasy or Sci-fi, with a little teen horror thrown in for angst. I was reading The Vampire Diaries decades before it was even a twinkle in the eyes of the producers. Now, I am addicted to PnR, always reading at least one book a week about vamps, wolves, angels, demons, Fae, or overall magic.
