Overview

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.

Bestseller Crownover (Marked Men) begins her Welcome to the Point series with bad boy Shane "Bax" Baxter, a violent ex-con who's so self-obsessed that he has his own name tattooed across his back, and good girl Dovie Pryce, a quasi-virgin who ticks every box in the romance heroine checklist down to her red hair and green eyes. Crownover has a strong voice, and the minor characters, like damaged, machete-carrying military veteran Lester, are well-drawn. But though the dialogue is snappy, the two narrators are so wooden it's hard to imagine them speaking those clever words. Bax has no emotional arc other than becoming monogamous. Additionally, his assault-like kisses and dubiously consensual sex with Dovie make their relationship difficult to root for. Crownover may be aiming for gritty, but it just leaves the reader feeling grubby. (June)
