Review: Better When He's Brave by Jay Crownover (Welcome to the Point, #3)


(from goodreads)

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 has always seen his world in black and white. There is a firm right and wrong in his mind, 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 walking the straight and narrow seems far less important now. 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. This girl might be as dangerous to Titus as the guy trying to destroy the Point but he can’t walk away because he needs her—in more ways than one.

Reeve knows all about the threat trying to destroy The Point. She knows how ruthless, how vicious, and how cruel this new danger can be… and instead of running away, she wants to help. Reeve knows that 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.

Okay, I think I have found my new favourite book in this series. Titus and Reeve are two very intriguing characters. The chemistry between them was sizzling whenever they were in the same room.

Both of them have issues and you discover more and more in this book. In the first two books, you see Titus as only the good guy; the guy who believes in justice and want to help out everyone. And yes, this Titus is still in this book, but we discover a darker side of him; something I didn't quite expect. I really found interesting learning about his past.

And Reeve we knew a little bit of her history and why she ended up backstabbing Dovie. Even then, I couldn't muster enough hate for Reeve. I do hate that she did it, but I also felt for her because she was in debt with a man that no one would dare to cross or almost no man.

Titus and Reeve like I previously said have a lot of chemistry between them hard to ignore. I was reading their interaction with a lot of interest because I felt it was quite refreshing. I don't know how to explain it; it just felt different from other stories I recently read.

But I think what I liked about this his how Jay brought in a whole new perspective of the bad guys in this book. We knew someone was going after Bax, Nassir and Race, but the twist she added in this book wasn't one I ever thought.

I'm really trying to do a review without giving it too much because I don't want to spoil anyone with this, but really, this book is so worth it. The characters, the twist, the story, everything is awesome. You just want more and more and I'm looking forward to read Nassir's story. I feel like this one might top every other stories because let's face it... Jay knows how to spoil us and to make us want more and more at each new book.

I was lucky enough to win an ARC of this from Jay and Mel and I'm really thankful to them for doing this. :)
