~ Synopsis ~
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.
4.5 Stars of Awesomeness
Shane Baxter is not a bad boy. He is not the boy that looks bad but is soft on the inside. Shane Baxter is the boy that is bad. He is bad straight to his core. He lives each day as if tomorrow will not exist. He is a thief, a con-artist and a convict. He lives hard and plays harder. He is fresh out of 5 years in prison and looking for revenge and answers.
Dovie Pryce has grown up hard but still see's the best of the world. She has lived the same life Shane has but has managed to come out on the bright side. Orphaned with a drug addicted mother and a bastard father. She is the product of an affair that was never supposed to be.
Race Hartman has grown up privileged. He grew up on The Hill, away from the degradation of The Point. Until his path crossed with Bax (Shane) with Bax trying to steal his car. He earned Bax's respect and friendship that night.
Bax is now out of prison and looking for the one person who could give him answers, Race. The only problem is that Race is in the wind. After threatening the kingpin of The Point, Race disappeared. In his search for answers Bax finds Dovie. Turns out Dovie is Race's sister.
Now to unravel the mystery and find Race. Will Dovie's sweetness and wholesomeness be Shane Baxter's kryptonite or his worst annoyance? He scares the life out of her and makes her body hum all at the same time. He is the best and the worst kind of bad. Compete hotness wrapped up in a terrifyingly scary package.
This book was wonderful. It is not your typical good girl saves the bad boy. There is no saving Shane Baxter. You either love him the way he is or find a Prince Charming. He is not and will never be Prince Charming. He will protect you as long as your around and spin your head sexually but do not get to close because with Shane nothing ever stays good for long.
This series looks to be wonderful. It will make you think, make you curse, and make you swoon. I can not wait to read Race's story next. You may find Shane Baxter to be unredeemable or he may just change your perception of what a night in shining armor should really be. He is a thug, he is a thief, but if he finds you worthy he will risk his life to make yours safe!
