Looks can be deceiving.

I knew that most people took one look at the ink and the impossibly big and strong body it covered and decided I was a brawler…a bruiser…a beast. However, I was hardwired to be a thinker, not a fighter—my mind being my greatest weapon and my biggest weakness.

I should have chosen to use my brain and talents to be one of the good guys, a hero, a man wi

Start your review of Dignity (The Breaking Point, #2)
Book two of The Breaking Point series was a great read. Stark is the smart and sexy kind of hero, and I definitely fell for him! I found he was portrayed a lot like the superheroes that we see in the movies lately! Even though this story had far fetched moments, it was still an enjoyable read! The love that developed between Stark and Noe was extremely sweet. These two characters struggled with trusting anyone, but once they found each other; they learned where their trust could be given!

Such a fantastic story, I devoured it.I have the same feeling starting this book like when I read Honor, I didn't know what to expect and this intrigued me even more.When I start reading Dignity, it was hard to put it down!

Stark and Noe were the perfect combination.Seriously they have an amazing chemistry and it was like an explosion every time they were together.They were super hot and intense.Stark was perfect, I'm in love with him.He is smart and sexy!

Anytime a new book comes out with the name Jay Crownover attached to it I am in! And anytime it’s a sequel to a book I really got sucked into I am all over it! I am just so happy that Dignity lived up to the hype I had in my head after reading about Noe and Stark in the last pages of Honor! They have been on my mind ever since.

The gritty world of the Point is still the same dangerous and unforgiving place. Two people will struggle in different ways to make it through with as few scars as possibl

Beyond Excellent. This one is now my FAVORITE Jay book EVERRRRR. And that's from a die-hard Nash fan. Seriously. Stark is scrumptious, broody, wicked-smart, and just as delicious as all of Jay's men, but he's just got something about him that kept me turning pages at 2 a.m. Utterly fabulous. ...more
Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

Series are probably my absolute favorite. I love living in the "world" of connected characters that makes me feel like I'm a part of it, being friends or family and living a part of their lives. After watching Nassir and Keelyn's love story unfold (with all the ups and downs) I was hooked on this new set of characters. A tattooed main character, gruff and with a wall built all around his heart a thief that knows she is in over her head as the female lead pulled me into this one from the beginnin

Okay.... so what went wrong for me, with regards to this book? I mean, I love Asian characters in mostly white-people-falling-in-lust/love romances. I also love geek heroes. I also love almost all of Jay Crownover's The Point books, but this one? Bored me out of my freakin' mind. The story's pacing, literally, crawled like tar on wood.

No, not like this type of crawling:
sexy crawling

More, like this type of crawling:

In theory, it was a great story. Murder, mayhem, avenging wrongs, bad guys doing good, etc. But

Being a second book in this series…I usually love them more than the first books. I know I am weird buttttt as much as I liked this book Honor is still number one for me.

I loved that two “geeks” get together. Or I should say brainy acts. 
Noe’s story will break your heart as will Starks and I think what makes this book so special is how they need each other and don’t even know it.

It’s a book you can’t help but be rooting for them. And near the end… I FREAKING loved how they

Let me introduce you to my new favorite couple and story about the Point. Noe and Stark are just fantastic complex couples who find solace in their world together, and every minute of their journey is completely amazing.

Stark is the figurative Tin Man with a heart that has been on lock down since he suffered some serious losses in his life. The one girl to bring him back does so quickly and heats up all of his gears. From the minute they truly mee
DIGNITY is only my second read by author Jay Crownover and she has surprised me once again! Sexy, smart, heartwarming, and suspenseful - Noe and Stark's story had me on the edge of my seat the whole way through! Two damaged souls coming together for a purpose and it leads to so much more. These two bring something out in each other that they can no longer deny. Their journey to break down each other’s walls was quite amazing and incredibly entertaining. Once I started this book, I knew there was ...more

It was a major let-down. The characters were busy trying to fix each-other and have sex, and the real story-line was drowned.

I was really looking forward to this book because I didn't know what to expect from these two characters, but I was really eager about finding out.

Snowden Stark and Noe Lee are both hackers you don't want to have as enemies as they are both extremely good at finding what you don't want people to know. On their own, they can do wonders, but together, they seem to be a force to be reckoned with.

Each of their past has forged them into the people they are now and is the reason as to why

Noe Lee gained an enemy in Snowden Stark when she robbed his apartment. But when she ends up in trouble with people after her, she has no one else to turn to for help.

Stark did not expect to see the tiny, mighty homeless girl again that took all of his tech stuff, and his first reaction was to refuse to take on the situation. But when he had second thoughts, he realized his indecision just put her in more immediate danger. So soon he is invested in trying to get her back safe and sound

I swear Jay Crownover's books are truly comfort food for me. They consistently bring me out of my funks and pretty much destroy my expectations because they are that fantastic. I have been a HUGE fan of hers from the beginning with Rule and the Marked Men but have come to love her just a tad more after her Welcome to the Point series (BAX will always be mine *sigh*) and her spinoff -The Breaking Point-series with Nassir. For that reason I might have slowly been dying inside for Stark. Snowden St ...more

“...there cannot be heroes without villains. You have to have one in order to appreciate the qualities in the other.”

Jay Crownover never fails to astound me with the undeniable beauty, grit and depth of her stories. With the issues that actually happen in the real world that she's able to tackle and weave flawlessly into her books. Going back to the Point will always make you feel raw and exposed with everything that happens in it. Stark and Noe's tale in Dignity is certainly no different, a

”The things we have to work for are the things we appreciate the most.”

With each story that Jay Crownover pens to life in The Point/Breaking Point series, I FALL HARDER IN LOVE!!! With each story, I sink so far into this saga that is the best fusion of villains and heroes! With each story, the line is blurred among the Marked Men and those dark heroes of The Point where I am almost hard-pressed to choose a favorite.

I have no idea how Jay Crownover manages to blow my mind with every new read. The Point is not a place known for happy endings. It's where bad guys go to get worse or get gone.

Stark, AKA our Boy Genius, has been living the somewhat low life after signing his life away to the Devil in The Point. He's like his machines: cold, effortless, and efficient. Cross him, his boss, or his low set of morals and he can wipe your existence from the electronic earth. Little does

Snowden Stark regretted the moment he slammed the door in Noe Lee’s face. Now she is missing and he can’t get her out of his mind. She wouldn’t have knocked on his door if she wasn’t in trouble and now she’s missing.

Stark is a hard man to get a bead on. He is used to keeping himself closed off and separate from even the people he considers friends. That’s just the way it is in the Point. It’s also the only thing that has kept him safe from those who are after him. He is a tech genius, t

Even the most mechanical of the hearts can find love right on Point!

Every time I read one of her books, I finish it in awe. She is one of the authors I always go to, a safe bet to a wonderful story. And even when I don't think I'll relate much to the plot or get so involved like the previous times, she proves me wrong.

And one thing is always for sure: her characters will be one of the strongest I've ever read!

Honor (The Breaking Point, #1)

This is Noe and Stark’s story. Stark looks like a fighter but is really a thinker. When Noe came to him for help he turned her away and now she’s gone. He needs to find her as he knew when he turned her away he should not have. But she has disappeared. Now he will have to use his brains to get her back.
3.5 stars!

The second book in the Breaking Point series takes us back to The Point – a dark, corrupt and crime-riddled town that has a Gotham-esque feeling to it. Noe Lee has lived on the streets of The Point since she ran away from an abusive home. Using only her wits and intelligence, she has not only survived, but she has helped others escape situations similar to hers. But the latest person she helped free from a bad situation has ties to the corrupt Mayor, putting Noe directly in his sights

Jay Crownover outdid herself with this story. I wanted to devour these words. Boy genius and little thief's chemistry was off the hook intense and sexy.
The story line was a bit of a departure for Jay Crownover's style (if you can say she has a style other than doing what she does-- brings the words) but she nailed it. This is one of the things that makes her a go to author for me as there's always a little something that sets one of her stories apart from her others books and most definitely apa

I have read this entire series. I loved Bax, Race was my absolute favorite, Titus was interesting. But since Nasir and now Stark, I’m trying to figure out if it’s a just me thing. The writing is exceptional. But, I’m missing the romantic connection even knowing going in it’s a tough, dark place to fall in love at the Point. I feel like I should know better by the 5th in the series.

Anyway, this one wasn’t really my cup of tea.....BUT...I’d never, ever give up on this autho

The word dignity is defined as “the state or quality of being worthy of honor or respect.” And while many of the major players in the Point live rather questionable lives, tending to follow their own set of rules regardless of the legality of such acts, these are also the people who use their ‘powers’ for good when they see injustice and mistreatment occur, working diligently to take down those who do not have the Point or its citizens in their best interest, only working for personal gain and h ...more

"I am a little bit of loneliness, a little bit of disregard
Handful of complaints but I can't help the fact
That everyone can see these scars
I am what I want you to want, what I want you to feel
But it's like no matter what I do, I can't convince you
To just believe this is real
So I, let go watching you turn your back like you always do
Face away and pretend I'm not
But I'll be here 'cause you're all that I've got"

Dignity is the second book in The Breaking Point series. I've been looking forward to Stark's story since I met him. The geeky, stoic, lonely hacker called to my soul. I will admit at first it was because of his tattoos, muscles and glasses, but I soon learned that his mind was what attracted me to him. Jay Crownover's books always make me feel. They suck me in and make me think about life, love, the journey we're all on and what our purpose is. Her characters are dynamic and complicated and

Who knew a computer hacker could be so sexy and badass.. And pair him with a female version of himself – explosive combination.

Snowden Stark – emotionally shut off, broody and bossy.

Noe Lee – thief, angry at the world, defiant and feisty.

These two had tragic pasts that changed the course of their lives. It takes a harrowing situation for Noe for Stark to come out of his self induced emotion coma and let himself feel something for another person – something he hasn't allowed himself to do in a
