Better When He's Bad

1, Welcome to the Point - A Welcome to the Point Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


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.

From Publishers Weekly

May 18, 2015 – Bestseller Crownover 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.

Better with Books

I have read all of Jay’s books and his series is my favorite. She made a place that was real, a world where you always have to look over your shoulder and brought he beauty out in that. Even though her characters are supposed to be “hard” they have something to actually live for. Someone to come home to after what could be the worst day of your life. That they are in it with you, always. She always gives so much emotion and such fierce love to all of her characters that your wishing you had something like that and dreaming about all of your favorites. I wasn’t even able to pick up another book yet, because all I was thinking about was what could have happened after the book ended.

Just so so

I went into this book with high hopes. It started out good, but seriously just got boring and droned on to the end. It's my first time reading this author, and I'm not sure if I'll read more of her books. If the first book in the series does not hold my attention I probably will not continue reading the rest! There was just not enough substance to it all. Maybe younger readers will not notice the difference and be drawn into this series, and that's fine for them, but with so many good authors out there I expect more as a reader!
