Tell Me About It
Some men are just better when they're bold.

Welcome to the Point...

In a dark and broken kingdom, a ruler has to 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 her best friend's brother for what he is--too pretty, too smooth, and way too dangerous to touch. Basking in Race's golden glow is very tempting, but Brysen knows she'd eventually get burned.

When she starts receiving threatening texts and someone tries to take her out in parking lot, 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?
My Thoughts
Better When He's Bold is the second book in the Welcome to the Point Series by Jay Crownover, where the men are bad, but oh so sexy. Better When He's Bold features Race and Brysen, for those of you who have read Better When He's Bad you will recognise these names, and the book is quick to pick on the action, sexual tension, and also give us a preview of what's to come.

Better When He's Bold is packed full of romance, bad boys, action, and lots of sexy times. I really do think that this one is my favourite out of them all, Bax can move over and make room for Race. Before I began reading Better When He's Bold I had my mind made up about Race and what I thought of him, and when we first meet him within the pages of this book my thoughts did not change, he was still arrogant, and so full of himself I don't know how his ego managed to fit through a door. It wasn't until we see a different side to Race when he saves Brysen that I began to change my mind, that maybe he wasn't as bad as I initially thought. Believe it or not Race is actually a good guy, when you look at why he commits these crimes there is a good reason for it, why let someone else do it for the wrong reason, when he can carry it out, but keep his integrity intact, knowing that deep down he is good, that he is right for this.

Race has his work cut out for him in Better When He's Bold. With a stalker following Brysen around, her teachers' aid messing up her grades, there are people are out for blood and are out to get Race or Nassir. Brysen is another enigma for Race to decrypt. Her outer persona gives of a standoffish attitude, that she is unmovable to the feelings of others and what goes on around her. But in reality she is fighting every single day, fighting to keep her family together, fighting to ensure her sister had a good life until she leaves home, fighting to make the grades in school, and also fighting her feelings for Race himself.

Brysen and Race make for an interesting couple in Better When He's Bold, and I really enjoyed seeing this duo fight their feelings to end up ignoring them and diving straight into being more than passing strangers. The story itself is gripping and entertaining, and with the added twist of having an unidentified stalker on the lose Better When He's Bold was an unputdownable read. I found myself devouring the pages as fast as I could, spending every valuable free second with the book in my hands. The final chapters of the book saw me on the edge of my seat with me wishing nothing but happy thoughts. I can't wait to pick up the next book and hopefully learn more about Booker and Karsen.

Final Verdict
Another must read masterpiece from Jay Crownover, I just really wish I had the next book in my hands.
