Review- Honor by Jay Crownover


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 front and center.

Honor by Jay Crownover is the first book in her the Breaking Point series. It is basically a sort of continuation of her Welcome to the Point series with a different set of characters but we do get to meet almost everyone from the previous books. I picked up Honor because I had liked Welcome to the Point series. I like her Saints of Denver series even more but I was curious to see how Jay would go about this series. I really enjoyed myself while reading Honor.

It is completely alright if you haven't read the previous books in the Point series before. These books are set in a place called Point, where everyone is struggling to survive. It is a harsh place where you have to fight to live but some call it home and some actually find love here. Honor is the story of Nassir and Keelyn. They have been circling each other for a while now and they finally crash.

Let's start with Nassir. Nassir has seen and done things no one should have to do. He comes from the Middle East, from a war zone but he has long ago stopped being a victim. Nassir was most definitely a bad man. He and Key like to refer to him as the devil and that is mostly true. But he does have redeeming qualities about himself. His devotion to Key being one of them.

Then we have Key. Key was a dancer at one of the clubs Nassir managed before she went to Denver to try to start over. Try being the operative word here. Key soon finds herself back in Point ready to face reality and Nassir. I thought Key was the perfect match for Nassir. She was not sweet or innocent so she actually understood where Nassir was coming from. Nassir and Key made for a good and compatible couple.

There is also a lot of action in Honor. Nassir and Key both have enemies and people are never as they seem. Things definitely went over the top a few times but hey, this is fiction and more importantly, this is the Point. I really enjoyed seeing old faces in this book. I am curious to see how the next books work out. I am especially waiting for Karsen and Booker's. Overall, Honor was a good read.
