Better When He's Bad by Jay Crownover

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.


I typically do a long written review of a book describing the who, what, and why's. It's not needed for this one. First because I don't want to give away any plot spoilers (seriously, don't skip ahead). And second, the books was amazing. For me it was a slow start but worth the five star rating. Crownover created the perfect blend of bad boy, smexy, mystery and plot twists! I loved that I couldn't guess the plot twists. I loved even more that a book was written about someone on the other side of the law. Crownover has a true talent to write about the bad boy and helping the reader find something redeemable in him.

If you're a fan of Crownover or the NA genre, this is a must read for 2014! I was lucky enough to read my copy of Better When He's Bad from the public library.
