About BETTER WHEN HE’S BRAVE:

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 sees the world in black and white. Right and wrong. 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 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, and she might be as dangerous to Titus as the guy trying to destroy the Point because he needs her—in more ways than one.
Reeve knows all about how ruthless this new threat to destroy The Point can be… and instead of running away, she wants to help. 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.

My Better When He's Brave Review ...

"There is no regret, Reeve, and there is no choice.  Right or wrong, you are it for me.  You get all the parts of me.  You make me feel like I can just be me, not a cop, not a big brother, not a hero, not a savior . . . just a man.  A man that has his good and bad parts.  I'll never be perfect but for you I will always be real, and you can always be just who you are with me. . . . "
 
Finally Titus's story.  Poor Titus torn between right and wrong in the Point.  

"I can't tell the difference anymore between the bad guys and the good guys that are bad because they don't have any other choice in the matter.  I'm not compromising, I'm adapting.  Isn't that the first rule of survival?"

I love this series where some of the people aren't bad per se but do bad things.  For Titus he's on the other end trying to be good and do the right thing but in the Point there is a very fine line.  Reeve sold part of her soul to get revenge putting her on the other side of the line.  But for Titus, he's intrigued enough to want to cross the line where Reeve is concerned.

"You shouldn't be what makes me feel good, Reeve."

Poor Titus such internal conflict.  But Reeve has her own battle with right and wrong. 

"You're trying to save everyone, I just wanted to save the one person that mattered to me.  It's different."

Reeve has always wanted Titus but never thought she was good enough.  She's made some bad decisions in her past, but now needs Titus for so much more.  But are her intentions honest or is she using our poor loving Titus?


As Titus needs Reeve to stop the war, he also finds he needs her for so much more.  The scales of right and wrong are different in the Point especially when you are related to the bad.

 I needed Bax to remind me that sometimes the bad guys weren't bad because they wanted to be; they were that way because they didn't have any other choice.

Titus is always taking care of everyone, as its his job and his passion, but for the first time he has someone actually wanting to take care of him.

"Take care of yourself, Detective.  Or better yet, get home in one piece so I can take care of you."

How do you fall in love, when your part of the world is dark and at war?

"We take care of each other.  That's what love in this place looks like.  You have each other's back."

I absolutely adore Jay Crownover and everything she has written, but I especially love this series where lines are drawn in pencil and there is good and bad on both sides.  It's a darker world to some but you can only be kick ass and strong to survive in it.  I loved Titus's conflict and his passion.  Reeve was perfect for him and a great representation of a woman of strength in a place like the Point.  Where sometimes you have to do bad things to survive but doesn't mean you have a bad heart.  I can't wait for more from this series and anything by Jay Crownover.

If you like the bad being bad but with big hearts and a life a bit more shady but hopeful then this series is perfect for you.

4. 5 Brave is the new bad thumbs up!
