Better When He’s Brave (Welcome to the Point #3) By Jay Crownover
Review: When I first heard of this next book in the series being about Titus, I wasn’t to sure how I felt. I mean I love everything that Crownover writes, because she is pretty amazing. But I for one am not real into stories about cop’s. I know that’s not the best thing to say, but its true. I just feel that they are all the same plot and the characters are just there to give depth to the main plot of the good guy cop, who has to go up alone against a bad guy. Which is almost how this book started. But Crownover it seems just wants to mess with our heads and do her own thing. Which is a really great thing for this book, I mean wow I was good and different then a lot of others I have read.
Better When He’s Brave brings whole new elements into the Point series. Because so far all we have heard from in the first two books are Bad guys and Good girls. With this installment in the series it switches between Titus ( Good guy and a cop) and Reeve ( Not a good girl). Which kind of brought a whole new plot and character depth to the forefront.
When I first started reading this book it was hard to get into the plot at first, because one I have been crazy busy with school. Two, how the book started out and continued to do throughout was narration ( like an old black and white crime/cop movie). At first I was annoyed because I’m not one for a lot of detail and this narration was just that. But I got more caught up in the plot and characters, the more I loved the extra detail.
But I think the best part of this book for me, was wishing if Jay Crownover might through her fans a bone and hint at a slight crossover ( With the Point series and the Marked Men). And it seemed just like she heard me, because went I got a chance to finish the book. There it was the bone I could only dream of was right there in the pages. I think I had a big grin on my face for the rest of the week. The bone and hints at the next book in the series has me chopping at the bit now, because it sounds that good.
4 out of 5 stars.

Summary: In New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jay Crownover’s third novel in her sexy, thrilling Welcome to the Point series, a woman’s search for repentance leads her to the one man from her past she can’t forget as they join forces to save their city—and the explosive love neither can live without.
Titus King has always seen his world in black and white. There is a firm right and wrong in his mind, which is why as a teenager he left behind the only family he’d ever known to make a better life for himself. Now a police detective in one of the worst cities in the country, he can’t deny his life has turned into a million different shades of gray.
The new criminal element in The Point has brought vengeance and destruction right to Titus’s front door, and walking the straight and narrow seems far less important now. The difference between right and wrong is nothing compared to keeping those he loves alive. To add to his already strained moral compass, the beautiful and mysterious Reeve Black has made her way back to town. This girl might be as dangerous to Titus as the guy trying to destroy the Point but he can’t walk away because he needs her—in more ways than one.
Reeve knows all about the threat trying to destroy The Point. She knows how ruthless, how vicious, and how cruel this new danger can be… and instead of running away, she wants to help. Reeve knows that she has a lot to repent for and saving the city, plus the hot cop that she hasn’t been able to forget might just be the only way she can finally find some inner peace.
With an entire city poised on the brink of war, Titus and Reeve stand in the crossfire—and it will take two brave souls to fight for the ultimate love.
