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.

Excerpt: “Everyone has a breaking point.”
I sounded gruff and really had to concentrate on getting the words out because she leaned forward and her lips hit right below my ear on my rough jaw. Her teeth started to nibble and her tongue lapped a long wet trail all the way up behind my ear where she breathed, “I would love to see you when you reach yours.”
She curled a hand around the back of my neck and rubbed her cheek against mine. When I let my monster have at her, it took in giant mouthfuls, gobbled her up, and tried to burn as fast and as hot as the pleasure would allow. She wasn’t kidding when she said hers needed to be soothed. Every move she made was deliberate, erotic. We touched everywhere and somehow it was more intimate than all the times I had been inside of her over the last month. She brushed her chest against my own and I decided the playing field needed to level out a little, so I hooked my hands under her shirt and lifted it up off over her head. Her hair fell back down around us like a dark curtain and I grabbed her face so I could kiss her. She blinked at me with big eyes and smiled.
“You are the only one that sees it, over and over again. You were the breaking point from the moment you walked in the door to tell me you helped Novak grab Dovie. I wanted to be disgusted, to hate you, but I didn’t. I thought you were beautiful and resilient. You seemed so misguided and lost, and even then I wanted to get you naked and fuck you on my desk.”
Her face lowered to mine and our lips touched just a tiny bit. One of her hands skated down the center of my chest and landed on my belt buckle. I reciprocated by popping the clasp on the back of her bra and pulling it out of my way.
“You should’ve tried. I would’ve let you.” The words danced across my lips and somewhere in the center of my chest an animal howled in delight. That was what was missing in my life. Someone that appreciated all the sacrifice, the hard choices I had made to become the man I was, but who could also appreciate the fucked-up kid I had been.

Tanya's Review: 
       What a way to start a book, Jay you grabbed me right from the first two pages and held my attention right to the very end. This is book 3 in The Point series, Titus's story. JC has brought us back to this dark troubled city to the one man trying so hard to save it and his family. We met Titus and Reeve in book one of this series and I gotta say I did not like Reeve but Titus, very curious about this cop that could arrest his own brother and put him in jail for years. As you read you see the struggle to survive in this horrible place and see how if you live there long enough you would be amazed at what you would do to survive.Everything is not black and white and Titus try as he might to stay in white learns gray is the shade in the Point.  I must say about half way thru the book I really began to like Reeve and feel for her and what had led her down the path she is on. So again kudos to Jay for taking someone I had no interest in and making her the perfect match for Titus. 
     This is a standalone with lots of action, mystery, revenge, hot badasses and some seriously strong women that are fierce enough to fight for these badasses. I will however say that I do not think I would have enjoyed this book as much as I did if I had not read the first two in the series. Every person in the hellhole The Point matters and events happen in books 1 & 2 that trigger the events in this installment so I strongly urge you to read this series in order. I am a complete fangirl when it comes to Jay's books and I must say each book gets better and better. I also want to say I need Booker's story sooner rather than later and I hope that he ends up with Brysen's younger sister, I know at this point in time she is too young but I think Booker can wait as she could be his reward for surviving the Point. 

Better When He is Brave:  4/5  stars
