Stand Alone or Part of a Series: Book 2 of the ‘Welcome to the Point’ seriesSummary: There’s a difference between a bad boy and a boy who is bad. . . . Welcome to the Point.
In a dark and broken kingdom, a ruler has be fearless to control the streets and the ruthless people who run them. Race Hartman is just bold enough, just smart enough, and just lost enough to wear the crown. Places like The Point will always have bad things and bad people, but the man in control of all that badness can minimize the devastation. Race has a plan, but can he prevent total annihilation without destroying himself?
Brysen Carter has always seen the real Race—a guy too pretty, too smooth, and way too dangerous. Basking in his golden glow is very tempting, but Brysen knows she’ll eventually get burned. She has enough problems without the risky danger and mayhem that comes with a guy like Race. Too bad Brysen faces a threat close to home that might be more dangerous than anything The Point has ever produced.. And the only person interested in keeping her safe is the one man she can’t allow herself to have.
Sometimes being bold is the only way to stay alive. But can she let Race save her life . . . if it means losing herself to him?
Happily Ever After: Yes.
What I Liked Most About This Book: I loved how this book, more so than the previous book, set up the characters and the action for the remainder of the series. It left me intrigued and dying to know more about Nassir and rooting for Booker and Carsen to get their own Happily Ever After. But while keeping me on the edge of my seat waiting for the next books in this series, it also wrapped itself up in a nice pretty bow so that I didn’t feel like I was left with a cliffhanger.
What I Liked Least About This Book: I’m not sure that I fully bought that Race was the King of the Point. I am not sure that the author fully developed that plot point enough. Bax brought the previous big bad down and Nassir is the one currently running things like Spanky’s and the club. What, exactly, is Race doing in The Point to earn the title of ‘King’?
