I would first like to thank Jay Crowover and her people for the advance reader copy and in no way was my review or staring swayed by this. It’s all honest.
Well I do have to say I have never read anything, and I mean ANYTHING like this book. Which does not mean that’s a bad thing,when Jay Crownover tells readers with this book that bad is way better than good could be any day. The characters have so much depth that is positively pitch dark. I was so hypnotized by the darkness and the rough/horrible lives that Dovie and Bax had to go through. But as you read on they understand that they have been given a shit life and know that they cant make it perfect and be good people, such as Bax who gets it and choses to be who he is and not some goodie two shoes. He immerses himself in his badness, which make him one of the only, if not only character in fiction I have read that does this and at the end not try to be a upstanding citizen. Then there’s Dovie, who is a total badass and good person, just a little rough around the edges. Even the side characters have me interned in if they will get their own book, which we have heard some hints about. But it also makes you think how could their story be any better, or should I say bad? ( Just in case you don’t get that I mean bad in a good way, I also mean a very hot way too).
Anyway… The plot of the point will leave many breathless, as I was at almost all of the book and its more intense moments. This book had me caught from the first chapter all the way to the end. In which I actually stood up a friend so that I could finish reading the book and not be bothered.

Summary: 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, but it doesn’t take Dovie long to realize that some boys are just better when they’re bad.
