In celebration of the newly released BETTER WHEN HE'S BOLD (Welcome to the Point Series #2), New York Times bestselling author Jay Crownover is giving us a series world tour.

Readers, come discover the dark places of the Point.

The Point

The Point is the part of the city where you know you’ve crossed the line and the rules of civilized society no longer exist. This is the wrongest, wrong side of the tracks anyone will ever see. It’s more than the inner city. It’s more than the bad part of town. It’s a place that eats hopes and dreams for breakfast and only the strongest, smartest, and the most wicked will survive.

The District

The District is the part of the Point where people go for one thing-SEX. It’s a block lined with neon lights flashing “Live Nudes” and “Girls, Girls, Girls”. There is no hiding what the District is about and no making excuses for why it exists. In a place like the Point, sex equals currency and the people in charge of it might as well be the bankers of the whole city.


On a block, that is flooded with strip clubs and sex shops, there is always a place that will rise above the rest. Maybe it’s the girls inside. Maybe it’s the vibe. Maybe they pour the stiffest drinks and have the most lax rules in the private dance rooms. Whatever it is, there is just something special about that one club, and in the District that club is Spanky’s. Garishly pink, horrendously tacky, audaciously loud and out of date, it is the strip club to end all strip clubs in the Point.

The Hill

The Hill sits up above the Point and the rest of the city below. It’s a place with manicured lawns and gated communities. Everything on the Hill seems lush and polished, primed and ready to show off. It is a place that seems like it shouldn’t be located so close to the filth and stench of the Point but all that darkness emanating from the city just makes the Hill shine brighter.

The Docks

Not pretty and desirable ocean front property by any means. The docks are just a ravaged and torn up as the rest of the Point. They are the gateway to all the bad things trying to come into the city from the outside. There is no breathtaking ocean view, instead men are smuggling bad things in and out of the city and ugly barges and rusted boats are all anyone can see for miles.

The Pit

Every city has that one place that no matter how rich or poor you are that you’re dying to get into. It’s the exclusivity of it. The mystery of why it’s so hard to gain entrance. It doesn’t matter if the club is in an old warehouse or a modern building, it’s the lure and bragging rights people are after. The Pit is that club. People from the Point willingly mix with people from the Hill, all to have the honor of saying they were allowed inside those hallowed walls. Once in, it is anybody’s guess as to what would be on the agenda. Fights, cocktails, dancing, naked woman or maybe naked men, drugs…the place beats with debauchery and excess.

The Diner

Just like every city needs a place that it seems impossible to get into, it also needs a place that feels like a comfortable old slipper that everyone can slide into. The diner is that. Comfort food in an atmosphere that feels safe and secure. The diner isn’t in the Point or out of it. It rests right on the cusp, so it doesn’t matter what side of the tracks you might fall on-- the diner is right in the middle and everyone is welcome.

Do you dare to discover more? Visit the other stops on the Point world tour to meet The Women of the Point and The Men of the Point.


From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jay Crownover, comes the second book in a combustible new series, Welcome to the Point, that is sexier, darker, and better than ever.

There’s a difference between a bad boy and a boy who is bad. . . . Welcome to the Point.

In a dark and broken kingdom, a ruler has be fearless to control the streets and the ruthless people who run them. Race Hartman is just bold enough, just smart enough, and just lost enough to wear the crown. Places like the Point will always have bad things and bad people, but the man in control of all that badness can minimize the devastation. Race has a plan, but can he prevent total annihilation without destroying himself?

Brysen Carter has always seen the real Race—a guy too pretty, too smooth, and way too dangerous. Basking in his golden glow is very tempting, but Brysen knows she’ll eventually get burned. She has enough problems without the risky danger and mayhem that comes with a guy like Race. Too bad Brysen faces a threat close to home that might be more dangerous than anything The Point has ever produced.. And the only person interested in keeping her safe is the one man she can’t allow herself to have.

Sometimes being bold is the only way to stay alive. But can she let Race save her life . . . if it means losing herself to him?
