Looks can be deceiving.
I knew that most people took one look at the ink and the impossibly big and strong body it covered and decided I was a brawler…a bruiser…a beast. However, I was hardwired to be a thinker, not a fighter.
I should have chosen to use my brain and talents to be one of the good guys, a hero, a man with dignity and worth.
I turned my back on dignity and sold my soul to the highest bidder, deciding to dance with the devil, instead.
I couldn’t figure out how to help myself, so there was zero chance I knew how to save someone else.
That someone else was Noe Lee. She was the unkempt, unruly thief who was just as smart as I was and twice as street savvy. She was annoyingly adorable beneath the dirt and grime, and she was in trouble. In way over her head, I told myself it wasn’t my job to keep her from drowning. In the Point, it was sink or swim, and I wasn’t the designated lifeguard on duty.
I shut the door in her face, but now she’s gone…vanished…disappeared without a trace. It took less than a second for me to realize that I wanted her back.
When a woman comes along that melts all the frozen, hard things you’re made of; you’ll do anything you have to, to bring her home.
What you see is not always what you get…and with a man like me, what you get is more than anyone ever bargained for.
So freaking happy I found this author! Her books keep getting better and better!
Being bad can be good
Jay is one of my favorite authors and her ability to look at a situation and turn it and her characters on its head while keeping you still loving everyone involved! The Point is a city that is the most corrupt city ever and the only people to protect it are the bad men that run it! Dignity gives Stark his time to shine and protect his city from the corrupt people in government positions all while learning how to love and letting people in. Noe is a little thief who happens to steal Starks heart and set his internal good on its head to help the people who needed it for better or worse!
What can I say , one of her best . Loved how Noe is a strong woman and makes Stark a better man for it.
