Stand Alone or Part of a Series: Book 3 of the ‘Welcome to the Point’ seriesSummary: 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.
Happily Ever After: Yes.
What I Liked Most About This Book: Unlike the twist in Better When He’s Bad, I DID NOT see some of the twists in this book coming. It was awesome! I am usually pretty good and predicting where a book is going to go, so major props to the author for being able to catch me off guard…especially as she managed it more than once with this one.
What I Liked Least About This Book: I didn’t like how the book begin….while it was jarring and attention grabbing to have the story begin with the hero getting his ass kicked, it was confusing because it was skipping around in the timeline of the story and I think it took the emotional punch out of the scene when you caught back up to that point in the linear progression of the story. You had already been there and seen that, so you knew all along what was going to happen.
Share A Quote From The Book: “In this place you never know what pile of shit tomorrow is going to hand you, so having something that makes you feel good for even a second needs to be valued.”
