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.

I loved Bax because he isn't your average bad boy (there I go again using those naughty words) and cannot stop being bad. I went from wanting to smack him to wanting to hug him. Jay does a great job in reminding you this isn't your average redemption story. Bax is who he is (which a lot, of the time is a real arse)! What I liked was the balance Dovie brings to his chaos. He's not a cardboard cutout, tortured guy looking for a girl to save him - Bax is SO much more!
I was expecting to miss Rule, Jet, Rome, Nash etc but Jay's created some fab, but very different new characters who I loved in a totally different way. I'm looking forward to more of The Point, and as ever am fully in #TeamJay.
