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.

Bax. A total bad ass. And not just a bad boy in a leather jacket on a motorcycle, but a bad boy criminal! A felon. But despite his history and his long rap sheet, you just can't help but fall for this man!
Dovie is a great female character. I love the fact she is not some voluptuous, knockout that men fall for in this book. She's a plain Jane, with crazy, red curly hair. Even though she's a plain Jane, she is street smart and knows how to handle living in The Point. Dovie knows how to take care of herself while being smart of her surroundings.
Bax is released from prison after being locked up for five years and now wants answers. He took the fall for his best friend, Race and was set up. Bax is full of hate, anger and revenge when he gets out. He finds Dovie, thinking she is the key to all the answers, but it turns out she is Race's half sister and is in just as much trouble as he is with the bad people from The Point!
Bax and Dovie soon find more questions than answers to everything that has happened in the past five years. Their relationship doesn't start off on the right foot. Bax terrifies Dovie and Bax can't get over how stubborn she is in order to help her brother.
Better When He's Bad takes you on a wild, mysterious ride to figure out what really happened and who you can and can't trust.
And when Bax and Dovie finally react to their attraction with each other, it is bad ass HOT! This book is a real page turner, you can't stop until you find out the answers.
Looking forward to more in this series with Race's story and hopefully a little more of Bax and Dovie!
