In New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jay Crownover’s third novel in her sexy, thrilling Welcome to the Point series, a woman’s search for repentance leads her to the one man from her past she can’t forget as they join forces to save their city—and the explosive love neither can live without.

Titus King sees the world in black and white. Right and wrong. Which is why as a teenager he left behind the only family he’d ever known to make a better life for himself. Now a police detective in one of the worst cities in the country, he can’t deny his life has turned into a million different shades of gray. 

The new criminal element in The Point has brought vengeance and destruction right to Titus’s front door, and the difference between right and wrong is nothing compared to keeping those he loves alive. To add to his already strained moral compass, the beautiful and mysterious Reeve Black has made her way back to town, and she might be as dangerous to Titus as the guy trying to destroy the Point because he needs her—in more ways than one.

Reeve knows all about how ruthless this new threat to destroy The Point can be… and instead of running away, she wants to help. She has a lot to repent for and saving the city, plus the hot cop that she hasn’t been able to forget might just be the only way she can finally find some inner peace.

With an entire city poised on the brink of war, Titus and Reeve stand in the crossfire—and it will take two brave souls to fight for the ultimate love.

I love how Jay manages to expose the dualism of a person's personality: the Ying & Yang, good/bad, etc ... it seems to be a running commentary throughout her main characters. But what makes it really intriguing is how those differing personalities match and link up with their love. I enjoyed reading how in sync Titus & Reeve really are. Great read!!!

Another fantastic addition to The Point series. Each book keeps getting better, hotter, and more intense. I can't get enough of the rough men of The Point who will go to any length for their girl. Titus and Reeve have palpable chemistry. Jump into The Point and prepare for a roller coaster ride of crime, hatred, lust and love.

Titus is the law in a city that has become pretty lawless. He believes in right and wrong even when it meant sending his own brother to jail. When Reeve returns to the Point, the attraction between them can’t be denied but Reeve has been on the wrong side of Titus’s right. Reeve is a nice person who has made some really bad life choices in her quest for vengeance and now she has to face the consequences. When a bad element makes it self known in the point, Reeve decides she wants to help. Reeve now must prove that she is the good person to herself and those around her. The cop and criminal, both needing something missing in their lives, Better When He’s Brave is the story of Reeve and Titus finding that something. Life in the Point is dark and intense and definitely not for the light hearted reader. I found Better When He’s Brave to be suspenseful, packed full of plenty of romantic steam while still managing to balance the action, love and real life drama. The characters are genuine and their plight heartfelt but the overall tone was a little to dark and the topics they face to cringe worthy for me. I received this ARC copy of better When He's Brave from William Morrow Paperbacks in exchange for a honest review.

I've really been anticipating Titus' story, and was not disappointed. It was good to get to know him better, and to see that he was really the good guy that he seemed in the prior books. I was surprised to end up liking Reeve quite a bit, as her prior history pre-disposed me to having some hard feelings toward her. The two of them were great together. I enjoyed having the characters from the previous books show up some, and I am already looking forward to the next book.

I was looking forward to reading this one because I loved Titus in the first two books. He is one of the characters in the series who is really trying to do good for the citizens of The Point. This time around, Reeve, the one who betrayed Dovey in the first book, is back and wants to make things right. She has information about who is causing havoc with the people of the city. She knows that Titus needs her to bring him down for good. Her arrival isn't welcomed by many so it causes some tense moment. So, did I love the book? Yep, I loved the book! I loved Titus and Reeve together. What I loved about Titus is that even though he has started to see more of a grey area between good and evil, he ultimately stays true to himself and his need to uphold the law. That made me admire his character more. I felt badly for Reeve. Her reasons for betrayal were understandable and I was rooting for her to be able to redeem herself. She is a strong female lead who really gets what The Point is all about. I also loved the way she insisted on calling people by their given names instead of the names The Point had given them. Her ability to see the person behind the facade was endearing. There are a couple of interesting twists in the story, so it will keep you guessing. It looks like Nassir's story is up next. While I look forward to his story, I am most looking forward to Booker's story and seeing how he gets back into everyone's good graces. I am a HUGE fan of Ms. Crownover's Marked Men series. If you love that one, I urge you to check out this series as well. It is a darker series, but the men are just as sexy and alpha and hard to resist. Make sure to check out the excerpt below to get a taste of what is in store for you!

Jay Crownover never disappoints. Couldn't put it down.

Holy hot cops everywhere I need Titus to arrest me. Jay Crownover has done it again! She has crafted such a dark story and turned it into amazingness. I swear if Jay gets any better I may die from how hot her books are. Titus is fighting a losing battle trying to save the innocent people from The Point. When his witnesses keep dying he knows something’s wrong. That’s when Reeve walks back into his life with more information on who the killer is and how she got involved. Together with Reeve as the bate Titus searches The Point for answers on who’s after his friends, family, and everyone in The Point. Of coarse there is the sexy parts too which are off the charts hot and the danger, which is bone chilling and terrifying. The whole story is breathtaking and not always in the hot way. If you’ve been keeping up with The Point since the beginning you know Titus and Reeve. Titus is Bax’s detective brother and Reeve is the girl who sold out Bax and Dovie to Bax’s father causing Dovie and Bax to almost die. Titus is so not what I expected. I mean I knew he had to be hot hot hot, but his thoughts and actions totally make him so much darker than I would have thought. Titus has demons and a dark past on how he got out of the Point and who his family is. He understands the Point and how everyone is a victim of the harsh environment that is The Point. I really thought Titus was just going to be a broody hot cop with a heart of gold who believed in turning over the Point to something good. Titus is so much more than that especially during the sexy times. He’s definitely a lot darker and more like Bax than I have seen in previous books, which I loved since I love Bax with a passion. Reeve was a hard character for me to like and it wasn’t because she wasn’t a good character. I just couldn’t get over her actions in book one and now seeing her in this book I just had a hard time liking her. Despite all that Reeve wormed her way into my heart and I couldn’t help but like her. Her and Titus were completely opposites in some ways, which I liked a lot. Reeve wore her bad girl status on her sleeve and her soft caring gentle side deep inside her where it couldn’t get hurt, where Titus is gentle on the outside but has some dark demons hidden deep inside. It was amazing to see Reeve bring out Titus’ darker nature and see her taking care of him even if he didn’t think he needed it. I have to say I enjoyed everything about this book. I love reading about the characters from previous books and seeing how they’re doing. I love learning about Titus and Reeve. I love Jay Crownover and her amazing world, writing, and characters. I love how nothing is predictable. Seriously Better When He’s Brave is fantastic. If you haven’t started this series yet you need to because books don’t get much better than this. I was reading this book a couple days before my wedding while I was supposed to be finishing up planning. So worth it! Thank you Jay Crownover for writing another amazing story.

What can I say, anything this author writes I will read. Because I love all her words. Its a good thing she writes beautiful stories, even in the point. Looking forward to Nassir's, Stark's and Booker's story.

The third installment of the Point series does disappoint. Better when He's Brave picks up where Bold left off and leads the readers farther into the seedy underbelly of the Point. The story is told through the eyes of Officer Titus King and the traitorous Reeve Black. This unlikely pair has chemistry that leaps off the page. You will not be able to stop reading once you start, so settle in and get ready for a heart-stopping ride. If you haven't read the first two installments of The Point series I strongly suggest you start their first. Happy Reading

4.5 stars! What I love about Jay Crownover is that she doesn't write typical new adult novels. Her books, and particularly this series, have realistic characters, engaging and suspenseful storylines, and scenery so vivid it feels like it's own character. Anti-heroes and the good girls who love them are Jay’s specialty. This series is my favorite of all of her books. I love how multi-layered, gritty, and realistic they are. Better When He’s Brave picks up immediately where Better When He’s Bold let off. The Point is on shaky ground and there is an unknown threat wreaking havoc and making people pay with their lives. The cast of characters we know and love is back to save their city and protect their family from a madman hell-bent on taking them all down. Having a book with Titus’s point of view is a nice contrast to the first two books, where the story is told from the wrong side of the law. Titus has dedicated his career and sacrificed most of his personal life to protect the people of the Point. Most days, it feels like a losing battle, but he feels he must save it to save himself. Reeve is an interesting character, and I had mixed feelings about her. She has faced bad situations and made bad choices because of it. Unlike most living in the Point, she has a conscience and wants to make things right--even when she knows that it will cost her her life. Reeve has intimate details about the threat attacking the Point, and Titus can’t save his city without her. I really wanted to hate Reeve for what she did to poor, sweet Dovie (in the first book), but she started to grow on me after hearing her side of the story and I came to the realization that Reeve is just a product of her (bad) environment. I also liked the fact that she is strong and confident, has nothing but fight in her, and isn’t afraid to do the hard work and get her hands dirty. Titus and Reeve seem like an unlikely pair; a saintly detective who falls for the criminal with a soft heart, but it works. And it is explosively hot when Titus finally lets go of his strict control and gives in to the temptation Reeve is providing. Although I didn’t feel as ‘warm and fuzzy’ about this couple as the previous two, the solid writing, the suspense, and the imagery kept me hooked on the story, as well as the series. I can’t wait to see what Jay has in store for the next book!

Yeah. I started reading this one evening and I just never stopped. It kept me turning pages until 4AM. I needed to know every detail so I just kept reading. Why? The characters. I adore both main characters, Reeve and Titus. Both of them come from impossible situations and have crazy awful choices to make. They live in a bad place but it's part of them and leaving just isn't a choice. While this story is far from my reality and it's larger than life, it spoke to me. These characters felt real. And they are drawn to each other. They shouldn't be. He's the cop. She's the criminal. He fights his attraction. She hides hers. Then they need each other to make things right. And they try to resist. Yeah...about that. It was perfect. There is a fine point where giving in too soon ruins the story and waiting too long makes the reader crazy. This one was perfect. I can't really explain more without spoiling but just know that it's perfect. I said this story is larger than life and it is. Lots of things were like, really? But you need to just go with it. It's fiction. It's entertaining and satisfying. It may not always be law abiding but it's got it's own type of justice. I read the first book in this series but not the second. I think all of them can stand alone. The author does a good job of getting the reader up to speed on the back story without boring us. I'd love to find time to go back and read book two and I'm wondering about book four. These books are raw and sexy. They are this author unleashed. If that's your kinda book, then you need this one and this series.

A good friend bought me Better When He's Bad for my birthday. She knew how much I loved "bad boys." Bax was so much more than a bad boy. The Welcome to the Point series changed my life. That's a pretty dramatic statement lol. But pretty true. Titus King is more than just a cop in a bad town. He's a good man, constantly being tested. Reeve is not a good woman. That's what she believes anyway. Together, these two are more than hot. This book is sexy. I would go so far as to say it's Jay's sexiest book yet. It's not just the sex scenes that are hot. It's basically the entire book. Jay just had this lyrical way of writing that makes it all real. You see how dangerous the Point is. You know what the stakes are. I loved this authors other series, The Marked Men. Loved them. But.... But. Welcome to the Point is something different. And that is what makes it so amazing. So many romance authors follow the same pattern, and Jay breaks out of that. She did it first with The Marked Men, and she did it again with The Point. I can't wait to see what comes next.
