Better When He's Bold Review

Better When He's Bold (Welcome to the Point #2)
By Jay Crownover

Goodreads Summary:

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?

Gabrielle's 4 Star Review:

Race Hartmen comes from a royally rich family but he threw everything away when he found out he had a half sister that his father tried to kill in the first book of the series. He now lives in the center of the criminal kingdom as its king.
Brysen Carter's family is from the same town as Race's but they don't live on "top of the hill" where all the super rich people live. They aren't poor but they aren't as wealthy as the Hartmen's. Their family is at the end of their money, about to lose their home and livelihoods because her father isn't smart with their money.
Brysen tries to avoid Race at all costs. She is fiercely attracted to the super smart, hot, rich guy BUT she tries to hide it. She knows it would be stupid to start anything with the new king of the criminal world in the Point.
Their attraction is undeniable when they first bump into each other in the book and as time goes on, Brysen slowly stops trying to fight it. Race is set out to protect her while her world is falling apart all around her. Someone is bent on revenge and tries to kill her and ruin her life. Her mother won't stop drinking long enough to be a real mother. Her father buries himself in his office as he loses his money in gambling casinos.
Finally, the only solace Brysen finds is in Race's arms and they realize the attraction between them is more than just lust. Something that could maybe even hold them together when everything tries to tear them apart.
I recommend this book to anyone who loves a good romance and some nonstop action. Jay proves herself once again in this second installment in the Welcome to the Point series!!
