Overview

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Jay Crownover returns with her most complicated hero yet, in the first book in the romantic suspense series The Breaking Point. 

Don’t be fooled.

Don’t make excuses for me.

I am not a good man.

I’ve seen things no one should, done things no one should talk about. Honor and conscience have no place in my life. But I’ve fought and I’ve survived. I’ve had to.

The first time I saw her dancing on that seedy stage in that second rate club, I felt my heart pulse for the first time. Keelyn Foster was too young, too vibrant for this place, and I knew in an instant that I would make her mine. But first I had to climb my way to the top. I had to have something more to offer her.

I’m here now, money is no object and I have no equal. Except for her. She's disappeared. But don’t worry, I will find her and claim her. She will be mine.

Like I said, don’t be fooled. I am not the devil in disguise... I’m the one standing front and center.

I write actual reviews for very few books. A book has to be completely amazing to get one. You guys. It. was. so. good. Honor just blew me away. I’ve loved all of Jay Crownover’s books so it’s not like I was completely surprised. But… I didn’t think I would love Nassir as much (maybe more) as I love Bax. Or love Keelyn more than I love Dovey. Nassir is a man with a very very dark past. This is not just a bad boy with an attitude. This man has seen and done some very bad things. He had a terrible childhood. He was forced to grow up too fast. But when he meets Keelyn Foster, there is something in her that calls to him. Keelyn didn’t have a great life either. But she’s been taking care of herself for a long time and she doesn’t want to get sucked in to Nassir’s world. Except she’s already part of it. Nassir and Keelyn’s story is beautiful. And dark. And it will rip you apart. There is something so amazing about this series. Don’t get me wrong, I love The Marked Men. But these are something different, in a totally amazing way. I know a few people who haven’t given this series a chance, and I just don’t get it. Don’t miss out on something amazing because you were afraid to try something a little different. Something a little out of your comfort zone. This story will touch, break, and put your heart back together, all in the same 368 pages. It is still, at it’s heart, a Jay Crownover story, and you don’t want to miss it.

I thought I knew what to expect when I started reading Honor, but I was wrong. It was a lot darker than I expected. If you think the three Point books were dark, the first book in The Breaking Point is so much more than that. There are very few authors who can make my stomach flip with anticipation and Jay is definitely one of them. I found the prologue difficult to read, giving us an insight to Nassir’s backstory. One of the things I appreciate is, as the rest of Jay’s books, this is dual POV. There were some pivotal scenes that are typically written in the heroine’s POV, but I was thrilled to see those scenes through Nassir’s eyes. His demeanor, his composure, his inner thoughts were on display for all of us to see. There’s so much more to both Nassir and Key than you could ever imagine. Nassir and Key are both such strong characters, you can’t help but root for them. There’s just so much I want to say, but can’t without spoiling the book and, frankly, spoilers are evil. I will say, you will NOT be disappointed with this book. I took my time reading because I really wanted to feel the book. I love all of Jay’s books and have yet to be disappointed, but I think this one has definitely been bumped to the top of the list. I absolutely love the Devil and he’s very much not in disguise.

This author won my loyal readership with the very first of her books and continues to do so with each new one I purchase. Her books are, without fail, well written and the storylines compelling. Her characters are engaging and I can always tell she puts a little of her heart and soul into each of them. Jay, I will follow you and your stories into whatever environment your writing muse chooses to take you.

I have read a lot of her other books that I loved. But this one just fell flat for me. I felt like she could have put in more of a back story with the two main characters. They had one interaction, then BAM! I need more story than that.

This book took me longer than normal to finish since I did not want it to end. I wanted to hold on to it as long as I could. "Maybe that was the point. There wasn't a right or wrong way to love, there was just understanding that was there and trying your best to treat it like the fragile, valuable, precious thing that it was." "That was what it was like to be a dishonorable man with a horrific past in a wrecked city. The consequences never seemed t o end and I had a lifetime of them gunning for me." " It takes a brave woman to love the kind of men we love, Key, but they have to be just as brave to love us back. We're fighting the same fight. It's just as scary for them to lose one of us because of this life. That's why they work to make it better as hard as they do." "When has anything between is ever been easy?"

“Speak of the devil and he will appear.” In this fourth installment of Jay Crownover’s Welcome to the Point series, we finally get Nassir’s story. I have been waiting for this book since this seductively evil man first appeared in Bax’ book. It was well worth the wait. In Honor, Jay masterfully weaves her story making skills to create a captivating, panty meltingly hot narrative worthy of Nassir and Honor. During the prologue the reader gets an in depth look into the horrific background into which Nassir was born. My heart ached for boy he was, the atrocities he experienced, and the decisions he was forced to make. The hell that birthed this complicated man is far beyond what I could have ever imagined. The fact that he escaped with his soul intact (a fact that Nassir would more than likely dispute) is astounding. A man this enigmatic needs a woman who is dominant enough to rule the Point by his side. Honor is the PERFECT choice. She is quite possibly the strongest, most fiercely independent female that Jay has ever created. Honor confidently proves that she is the top b**ch and just as powerful as Nassir, all while wearing sky high stilettoes. What truly struck me about this book was how light it was compared to the other three installments. Throughout the books there was a sense of promising reconstruction in the Point. Yes there were still many seemingly insurmountable obstacles that the main characters had to face, and the Point will never become Pleasantville, but I finished the book believing that things may finally be alright for our favorite characters. And speaking of favorite characters we do get a brief visit from one of the Denver beauties and we get to meet a person named Noe who is bound to become and instant favorite. The scene with Noe and Stark was absolutely hilarious. I am hoping that we will be seeing A LOT of these two in the future!! The only criticism I have of Honor is that we get no background information on the namesake of the book. I was looking forward to learning about the circumstances that took Keelyn and molded her into Honor. Honor more than lived up to expectations. Nassir and Keelyn have quickly made their way to top of my favorite Crownover Couples list.

Jay Crownover is one of my absolute favorite authors and this may be my favorite book of hers yet! Honor gives us a much better understanding of Nassir's character and how perfectly he fits with his "Key". ;) These two characters are dark and flawed but Jay's writing makes us completely root for the "bad guys" in this novel. I give Honor 5 out of 5 Krissy's Stars! I can't wait to see what's next for the Point! Xo- K *I was generously given an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Gates is the best worst kind of man. This book isnt on the right side of the law but that doesnt mean its wrong. Its better!!!

Here's the thing - I like bad boys but I always want some good in them. Something that makes them not so bad. Not gonna find that in Nassir. He's not gonna be a better person. This book opens with his back story. Never been a fan of him though now I can see why he is the way he is. It explains a lot about who he is. And while I get that, it wasn't a story I enjoyed hearing. Nassir is a true bad guy. He has done what he's had to to survive but it doesn't make him good. I just never cared enough about him to enjoy his story. That made me sad. Keelyn has done what she had to to survive too. She's afraid to be Nassir's girl. She ran from him. She doesn't get that swooning feeling in her heart just seeing him again. She's attracted to him but he scares her. Don't get me wrong, she's not all sweetness and goodness. She stripped in the Point to survive. She misses her sexy underwear and spiked shoes. That's just who she is. I get that. I just don't enjoy reading about her. She doesn't really appeal to me. This book is gritty, dark and hard. The characters are real and there are no excuses for who they are. They are certainly attracted to each other and Nassir wants Key. But it didn't feel like a devoted want - more of a possessive want. It matched the location well. The Point is a dark place but these people have made their lives there. They fit that place. It's just not a place I want to go to even in a book. I enjoyed the first book in this series and the third. Both of those had characters I cared about so despite the harsh environment, my heart got involved. Not so much this time. When I don't care about the characters, I struggle to like the book. Of course this is a great story and the writing is all Jay Crownover. It just wasn't for me.

This book rocked! I loved the plot and how steamy it could get! I liked how it intertwined parts of the story line from Denver but also linked in other characters from the Point too. Honestly, there can't be a more of a power couple than Nassir and Key because man, they are equally awesome!

Nassir & Keelyn are a match made in heaven/hell! I doubt I've enjoyed a couple more!

Wow. I have never had to take a break from reading a book because of how intensely I felt the story before. This was an absolutely amazing book that had me in its grip from the first paragraph. I have been waiting to find out more about Nassir and now that I have I absolutely adore him even more. He is an amazing character and all those wrong feeling I had for loving the bad man in the story feel a little less wrong now. I love Keelyn's personality and the fact that she balances so well in any position she is put in. I can't even put into words the quality of this story because my mind is so blown. I cannot wait for more books!

Oh my goodness what a book!!! I loved every minute of it, it was so addicting that I couldn’t stop reading and when I did I kept thinking back to it. Jay Crownover certainly is one of my favorite authors, she always creates characters that are so complex and lovable, even a bad guy like Nassir that should make you be scared of what he is capable to me he was just a guy that so in love with a girl that everything he did was for her. So so lovely! And I’m sure that Nassir would hate it that that’s what I think of him and how I saw him when I was reading the book. I don’t think I ever read a book that had this much sexual tension, every page I was expecting these two to just combust but it never happened . . . until it did and it was perfect. It is easy to see how Nassir’s upbringing affected him and shaped him but it was also so heartwarming to see that despite everything that he has done and seen he can still feel love and not just desire and possession over someone else. This book has become a top favorite of mine from Miss Jay Crownover.

Honor is a book that will leave you spent. This story is exactly what I wanted for Nassir and adding in Key made the story that much better. As I think about how I want to share my thoughts and emotions about this book, several key words come to mind… Anticipation… Nassir has been lurking in the background of every book about the Point and I have been waiting to learn more about who he is and where he came from. He is such an important man in the world we read about and his demeanor and darkness is both intriguing and terrifying. I was nervous that I had built him up in my head but Jay took it one step further and created a stunningly scary and addictive character. Prologue… I have never read a prologue that completely immobilized me the way this one did. It was everything I wanted to know in such a horrifically beautiful way. You learn a LOT about Nassir in the first few pages of the book and it leaves you shocked. It opens this story to be so much more than anything else. It is sad, brutal, scary, and tinged with a love that is so foreign yet necessary. Seductive…. Everything about this book bleeds seduction. Both Nassir and Key are people who thrive in the Point. Their characters are passion and power. The situations and ventures these two take on are steeped in lust. They both exude so much raw energy that both attracts and repels those around them. The connection between these two is powerful and watching it all finally happen makes this book extraordinary. Danger… Life in the Point is nothing but danger on so many different levels. You never know who to trust or what is waiting around the corner. Jay does a great job of sharing the tension between the moments of bliss and the moments of terror. Life could take a drastic turn at any moment and we see that take place time and time again. These characters have mastered the art of the living in the moment and taking the punches as they come. Transformation… This one is a bit different. It is not like Nassir and Key have this revelation and turn into upstanding citizens. Jay is true to her characters and to the Point. The beauty of this story is that there is a spark of humanity that comes back. These two have seen and experienced terrible things. But what they find together is enough to open their eyes to what could be. This story is still the unapologetic story of the villain. To change that would be unfair to what Jay is writing. Instead we see hope and love as it infiltrates the dead places and how that can change a person, even if only in the slightest. Brilliant… When I look back at where Jay began, I am in awe of where she is today. This book is fantastic! It showcases her growth as an author and her maturity as a storyteller. She chooses her themes and takes the reader to places they would not normally go. Nassir and Key are far from the ideal lead couple in a story but the beauty of this book is that even the villain deserves to have their story told. There is humanity in the darkest of places. Jay gives life to Nassir and Key in such a way that you cannot doubt their story. I could go on and on. If you are hesitant to pick up this book, don’t be. I was nervous about it myself in the beginning but Jay Crownover has a lifelong fan in me. I am willing to take the leap with her and I have never regretted that leap of faith. Read this book and immerse yourself in the Point. Nassir and Key’s story will not disappoint.

I loved this book so much, Jay Crownover is a genius! The chemistry between Nassir and Keelyn is amazing, I couldn't put it down once I started! This is a must read! Can't wait to reread it again and again!
