Honor by Jay Crownover
“Sometimes you have to burn it all, level it all to the ground, for something new to sprout out of the ashes.”
Nobody know knows Nassir would call him the good guy. But that doesn’t mean he’s always a bad man. For years he has watched Keelyn, knowing what is between them and waiting patiently. Keelyn has recently fled the point after being put directly in the face of danger. She has no desire to go back, but when Nassir visits her in her new home, she cannot stop thinking about his offer.
Together they have the ability to rule The Point, but is that what Keelyn really wants? Or will she let the fears of “what if” stand in the way of her and Nassir.
“So simple yet so unbelievably complicated. Everything about this man always was.”
Reading this book one thing became very clear to me: Jay Crownover put her heart and soul into writing this story. You can feel how much it means to her when you read it. Nassir is a new kind of character, one you normally only find in the dark romance novels. But what I liked about him was his logic behind his actions and the fact that he was a very rational man, he just understood the kind of world he lived in wasn’t unicorns and rainbows.
Keelyn was a great protagonist, a strong woman who didn’t take crap from anyone. She wasn’t afraid to smack down anyone who crossed her which was kind of awesome. A very compelling story with diverse and intriguing characters, this is a book by Jay Crownover you don’t want to miss!
“There’s nothing wrong with wanting something more for those we care about.”
