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.
Better When He's Bad begins with Bax just getting out of prison after being locked up for the past five years. He knows he was set up back then, but now he is determined to find out the truth about what really went down so long ago. The problem is he never expected his best friend to up and disappear and leave his litter sister Dovie behind for Bax to protect.
At first Bax and Dovie don't seem to really care for one another, but after spending so much time together and getting to see a different side to each other, neither one of them can hold off for long before their feelings get involved in a big way making everything else so much harder.
This book was actually good, and a lot different from what I was expected. I loved Dovie and Bax's relationship. They really knew the other with out actually having known each other for very long. Other than those two the other characters in the book were okay. I didn't really care for Race, Dovie's brother, but I did like Bax's brother a whole lot! And I really loved the ending as well. I felt like in the beginning it took a whole lot to get through a lot of crappy stuff but then it got really good towards the end. I liked the plot line and the writing was pretty good. I actually don't know if I look forward to the next book because I don't like Race, but I do hope that Bax's brother gets his book because I really look forward to that!
