“They [Bax and Dovie] can sure burn off the pages with steam and heat.” ~ Under the Covers
Shane Baxter is a bad boy. Not just the type that has tattoos and a bad attitude. He’s from the wrong side of town, has had a rough life of survival, was always good at it until one mistake and he just got out of jail. He doesn’t want to go back to working for his old boss. After all he trying to get out then. But he’s forced to stay involved when he’s put in the middle of looking for his best friend, Race. His dear friend, who betrayed him and sent him to jail.
In his search for Race he finds his sister, Dovie. She’s also been looking for Race and won’t take no for an answer on working together.
So I liked Bax a lot. He’s ruthless, he’s passionate, he’s real. He doesn’t justify his actions, he speaks the truth, says what he meand and does what he wants. But he’s also the good type of bad boy. That’s not the life he wants for himself, but it’s the only one he was able to provide for himself with. He’s the type that wants to be able to have a good girl at his side instead of the strippers but doesn’t think that will ever be an option. Then Dovie steps in. She’s good, but not that innocent. She’s grown up in the streets herself and has had to make the best of what she had.
Their relationship has a nice build up. Their chemistry was definitely a presence whether in sexual tension or consummation. They work very well in day to day situations, they get to know each other and complement one another well. They can sure burn off the pages with steam and heat. I enjoyed every second!
This was another very enjoyable read coming from Jay Crownover and it definitely leaves me wanting to know more about The Point! With just the right amount of suspense and even some action.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jay Crownover returns with a heart-stopping new series… 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, awakening feelings she never thought she’d have for a guy like him. But it doesn’t take Dovie long to realize . . . some boys are just better when they’re bad.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
