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.

Shane Baxter & Dovie Pryce

Shane “Bax” Baxter has been in jail for 5 years. Now it is time for his release and he has a lot on his list to get done. Race is on top of that list. Bax needs to find his best friend and ask him some questions about the night he was arrested. The search for Race leads him to Dovie. Dovie needs Bax’s help to find her brother who is now in hiding. Bax did not even know good, sweet, innocent girls like Dovie existed. Bax knows he needs to stay away from Dovie or he will take her down with him into the darkness.

In order for Bax to get out from under all the darkness he must figure out what happened the night he was arrested by no other than his own brother Titus.

As the web of deceit becomes more clear to Bax and the pieces start to fall together, he and Dovie become very close. Dovie cannot resist the pull that Bax has. She wants him but keeps denying herself because she knows this will not end good for her.

I did not love this series as much as Marked Men but I feel that it is well written and the story is interesting. I like that Bax never really stops being BAX and Dovie just keeps being herself as well. But they influence each other in way to brings out more of the good than the bad.

Rating: 2 STARS
