Better When He's Bad (Welcome to the Point, #1) by Jay Crownover

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.,%201


His lips was still split on the bottom, so there was a weird scrape of raw skin mixed with the soft press of him mouth against mine.  He forced his tongue in to tangle with my own, and unbidden, my arms ended up wrapped around his neck while he pressed into me.  His teeth worried along the curve of my lower lip, and my heart started pounding with the press and retreat of his mouth.  This was mimicked by the slight press of his lean hips where they were pressed against my own.  I gasped and he took full advantage by pressing farther into me and twisting his tongue even farther with my own.  Kisses shouldn't make you want to crawl inside the other person, but oh man, his sure did.  (Kindle location 1806)
