New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Jay Crownover returns with her most complicated hero yet, in the first book in the romantic suspense series The Breaking Point.
Don’t be fooled.
Don’t make excuses for me.
I am not a good man.
I’ve seen things no one should, done things no one should talk about. Honor and conscience have no place in my life. But I’ve fought and I’ve survived. I’ve had to.
The first time I saw her dancing on that seedy stage in that second rate club, I felt my heart pulse for the first time. Keelyn Foster was too young, too vibrant for this place, and I knew in an instant that I would make her mine. But first I had to climb my way to the top. I had to have something more to offer her.
I’m here now, money is no object and I have no equal. Except for her. She’s disappeared. But don’t worry, I will find her and claim her. She will be mine.
Like I said, don’t be fooled. I am not the devil in disguise… I’m the one standing front and center.

What happens when the man you love is both your Hero and your worst Enemy?? That’s an answer you will find out by reading Nassir and Keelyn’s story.
Wow!!! I don’t really know what to say in my review. I have loved Jay Crownover’s writing since I was introduced to it with Rule. Honor was no different….this book was really good!!!!
I don’t think I can do this book justice with my review, but I will try. Let me start by saying that Honor was a completely different feel than her Marked Men series. This one was a darker type read, raw and even a little gritty. And the Hero Nassir….not like Rule at all!!! But that doesn’t mean I didn’t love him….it just took me a little while to warm up to him. As for the heroine Keelyn, I have to say I absolutely LOVED her. She is probably one of my favorite heroines to date.
I don’t want to give any of the storyline away, so I am just going to say read this book. I think you need to meet Nassir and Keelyn and follow the bumpy road to love and happiness. Jay has an amazing ability to create storylines that suck a reader in. This one did that and so much more. It was just the love story between Nassir and Keelyn, but the suspense of the story too that keeps you turning the page. Some things I could guess along the way but she was still able to surprise me most of the time. Her writing style is really good. The flow and pace of the book worked well for this story. Although I did find some parts to be slightly too wordy, but it didn’t take away from my enjoyment of this book. (Just could’ve left some of the details out)
We do first meet Nassir in Better When He’s Bad, but don’t let that scare you away from reading this book. Honor is a standalone novel and I don’t feel that any other book needs to be read first. I for one hadn’t read Better When He’s Bad yet and I didn’t feel like I was missing out on anything, when it came to Nassir’s character. Jay does a fabulous job filling in any holes that might occur by not reading the other book first. You will see other characters from her Welcome to the Point Series, but nothing that will ruin those books for you or make you fell lost.
If you are a fan of Jay’s then I would definitely read this book or if you are a fan of the romantic suspense style book, then this is one you should pick up. I don’t think you’ll be sorry!!!
“What are you doing here, Nassir?”
Nassir Gates, half man and half monster. He was lethal and toxic, keeping all that sinister beauty covered up in a ridiculously expensive suit that made him look elegant and falsely civilized. To the untrained eye, Nassir was an outrageously handsome man that looked like he was on his way to a business meeting, but if you had spent any time on the streets, were familiar with life in the gutter, there was no missing who he really was, what he was. The top of the food chain. If you knew about what it took to make it where I came from, you could look at Nassir and see that he not only thrived in chaos, but was comfortable there. He even managed to make it look good.
I left all of that behind. I liked Denver. I liked the laid-back vibe. I liked the monotony. I liked the predictability. I liked that I could walk to my car after my shift at the diner and not have to worry about taking a knife in the ribs or getting a revolver shoved in my back. I liked that I didn’t have to shake my ass or get naked to pay my bills. I liked that here, soccer dads were just that, and weren’t secretly banging hookers in the back room or gambling the family’s grocery money away at an illegal poker game. Most importantly I liked that I didn’t have to look my biggest addiction, my worst temptation, in the eye every single day and pretend like I didn’t want him. Here I didn’t have to deny that I had been infatuated with him for years. I was foolishly obsessed with this particular devil in a designer suit and I knew he was absolutely detrimental not only to my safety but to the thing I valued above all else…my independence.
After a childhood spent evading the hands of my mother’s overzealous and unhinged boyfriends and barely escaping the clutches of a sick and twisted stepfather, and too many years working my ass off—literally—to make a life for myself, I could never risk letting myself care for Nassir the way I wanted to because I knew that if I did, I would become nothing more than his, and I refused to be any man’s possession or accessory.
When the opportunity arose to take off without an explanation or without looking like I was running from him and the promise and future I saw so clearly in his eyes, I grabbed it. Ran away with both my heart and my tail tucked between my legs. But now he was here in this fragile and predictable paradise and I wanted to stab him with the broken pen and jump in his lap and put my mouth on his smirking lips all at the same time.
“You’re here, Key. Where else would I be?”
