Titus King has always seen his world in black and white. There is a firm right and wrong in his mind, 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 walking the straight and narrow seems far less important now. 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. This girl might be as dangerous to Titus as the guy trying to destroy the Point but he can’t walk away because he needs her—in more ways than one.
Reeve knows all about the threat trying to destroy The Point. She knows how ruthless, how vicious, and how cruel this new danger can be… and instead of running away, she wants to help. Reeve knows that 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.
This is the third book in Jay’s Point Series and they just keep getting better and better! In this book she takes the most hated girl in the Point, Reeve Black, and pits her against the most honest person in the Point, Titus King. They must form an uneasy alliance in order to take down the threat to the city he’s vowed to protect.
Titus’ character, as the honorable cop in a bad city, is multifaceted. His brother is a criminal and his friends are the new reigning crime lords, and they are the only ones he trusts, especially when it comes to protecting Reeve. His seemingly quiet facet hides the fact that he’s capable of being as bad as he needs to be in order to safe those he holds dear. Slowly peeling away the layers shows the reasoning behind this complicated cop.
Reeve Black, lives with guilt. Guilt from being unable to save her sister, guilt of being one that caused the death of one person, and the guilt of the being the one to get her friend kidnapped and almost killed. Reeve finds peace with Titus, because she can accept all of him, and he can accept her – the good and the bad.
I loved, loved, loved this book. It was hot – HOT! Titus fights his feelings for Reeve, and Reeve feels like she doesn’t deserve having someone as good as Titus. 5 stars and if I could give it higher than that, I would!
