I went to lower my lashes so I didn’t have to see how he really felt about me shining out of that reflective gaze.
“But as much as it pains me to say it, we can help each other out. In fact Ithink the only way to do this with minimal casualties is to work together. I want Roark and you want to keep your ass covered, and to do that, we need to be attached at the hip.”
I frowned at him as he continued to loom over me. “What are you suggesting, Detective?”
“I’m not suggesting it. I’m telling you that you are suddenly and irrevocably in love with me. You are obsessed with me and we are about to embark on a passionate, out-of-control, unexplainable, and very, very obvious romance. We are going to shove our new relationship so far down everyone’s throat that they are going to choke on it.”
I gulped and opened my mouth to tell him how crazy he sounded, but he reached out a hand and placed his palm lightly over my mouth. I scowled at him and contemplated sinking my teeth into the meaty part of his hand.
“Seriously, Reeve, it’s the only way. Bax will rein it in if he thinks I’ve got a thing for you. Nassir won’t back all the way off, but he’ll be less dangerous if he thinks he has to go through me to get to you. Plus, from what you’ve told me, and what I understand about whack jobs like Roark, if he thinks you replaced him with me, it’ll force him to move more quickly. He’ll come out of hiding faster if he thinks you moved on without a second thought. If you understand the risk involved, I’m willing to take them with you.”
I lifted both my eyebrows up and tapped my fingers on my knee until he took a step back as he gauged my reaction. I don’t know what he was expecting but he actually looked nervous as I climbed to my feet.
“What do you think?” His voice was low and he didn’t look away as I walked up so that I was standing directly in front of him.
What did I think? I thought there was no “suddenly” about being irrevocably in something that looked a lot like love with him. I thought passionate, out of control, and obsessive about summed up the way I already felt about him and that it would require zero acting on my part. I reached out and put a hand on the center of his chest. He was warm and hard. He felt like security and strength.
“I think you are going to have a much harder time pretending you like me than I will pretending I like you, Detective. Have you considered that?”
He balked a little and lifted a hand to circle his fingers around my wrist. I wondered if he felt my pulse kick at the touch.
“I do whatever it takes to get the job done.”
Oh, I bet he did. I smirked up at him and lifted up on tippy toes so that our lips were almost touching. I expected him to recoil, to back away in haste, but he didn’t. Instead his tongue darted out to lick across the curve of his bottom lip, and I almost groaned out loud.
“Prove it.” I whispered the challenge and then held my breath to see what this scary, sexy man would do once the gauntlet was thrown down.
He didn’t disappoint. He never did.
BETTER WHEN HE’S BRAVE Synopsis:
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.
Reese's Review:Holy hot cops everywhere I need Titus to arrest me. Jay Crownover has done it again! She has crafted such a dark story and turned it into amazingness. I swear if Jay gets any better I may die from how hot her books are.
Titus is fighting a losing battle trying to save the innocent people from The Point. When his witnesses keep dying he knows something’s wrong. That’s when Reeve walks back into his life with more information on who the killer is and how she got involved. Together with Reeve as the bate Titus searches The Point for answers on who’s after his friends, family, and everyone in The Point. Of coarse there is the sexy parts too which are off the charts hot and the danger, which is bone chilling and terrifying. The whole story is breathtaking and not always in the hot way.
If you’ve been keeping up with The Point since the beginning you know Titus and Reeve. Titus is Bax’s detective brother and Reeve is the girl who sold out Bax and Dovie to Bax’s father causing Dovie and Bax to almost die.
Titus is so not what I expected. I mean I knew he had to be hot hot hot, but his thoughts and actions totally make him so much darker than I would have thought. Titus has demons and a dark past on how he got out of the Point and who his family is. He understands the Point and how everyone is a victim of the harsh environment that is The Point. I really thought Titus was just going to be a broody hot cop with a heart of gold who believed in turning over the Point to something good. Titus is so much more than that especially during the sexy times. He’s definitely a lot darker and more like Bax than I have seen in previous books, which I loved since I love Bax with a passion.
Reeve was a hard character for me to like and it wasn’t because she wasn’t a good character. I just couldn’t get over her actions in book one and now seeing her in this book I just had a hard time liking her. Despite all that Reeve wormed her way into my heart and I couldn’t help but like her. Her and Titus were completely opposites in some ways, which I liked a lot. Reeve wore her bad girl status on her sleeve and her soft caring gentle side deep inside her where it couldn’t get hurt, where Titus is gentle on the outside but has some dark demons hidden deep inside. It was amazing to see Reeve bring out Titus’ darker nature and see her taking care of him even if he didn’t think he needed it.
I have to say I enjoyed everything about this book. I love reading about the characters from previous books and seeing how they’re doing. I love learning about Titus and Reeve. I love Jay Crownover and her amazing world, writing, and characters. I love how nothing is predictable. Seriously Better When He’s Brave is fantastic. If you haven’t started this series yet you need to because books don’t get much better than this. I was reading this book a couple days before my wedding while I was supposed to be finishing up planning. So worth it! Thank you Jay Crownover for writing another amazing story.
And don’t miss the previous books in The Point Series!
