About BETTER WHEN HE’S BAD: 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.

So, where do I start on Better When He's Bad??
First I have to say it is a brilliantly written story that captures your heart.  Jay Crownover has brought us a hero that is so unlike the others out there.  

This story isn't a happy go lucky type of read and in fact, there are some dark and scary moments.
But, these things make this story what it is.  What really makes this story so goooood.
So, let me introduce you to Bax...This guy oozes "Get the F away from me" from him and he is all action.  And I mean....ALL ACTION...LOL!!! 
So much has happened to him in his life and when we pick up with his story he has just gotten out of jail.  He has a lot of time to make up for and he gets started right away.
But, the one person he is looking for has gone in to hiding and as he is looking for him, he encounters a spunky someone named Dovie.
Now Bax isn't a relationship type of guy and the last thing he even wants around is some girl that will get in his way...
Well, I bet you can guess what happens next, right??

There were many things I never saw coming and I have to say I loved Dovie.  She is that female main character that I love to read about.  She is strong and vibrant.  She is full of life and in a place like The Point, she is a beacon for men like Bax...but it isn't an easy boy meets girl and boy falls in love.  Nope, these two struggle and battle and yet the chemistry between them is off the charts explosive.  When they come together it is like a bomb detonated and it was HOTTTTT!!!!
As life begins to interfere and events transpire, these two head in to the trials that test their resolve.
I couldn't believe what happened next and all I can say is HOLY CRAP!!!
Jay Crownover has produced a masterpiece of stimulating, dark, troubled characters that captivate the reader with a whirlwind of action-packed, passionate, intriguing storyline...
Definitely a book you need to pick up ASAP!!
