Blog Tour/Review ♥ Honor by Jay Crownover ♥ #giveaway


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.

A Review by Wendy

4 Crownover's Raw Passion Stars
* * * * 

Authors don't write in a vacuum...they may work consistently delivering book after book for our enjoyment...But I think, sometimes certain experiences from their creating and living with these characters they conjured up, can crawl into certain parts of their minds and hearts....causing these Authors to develop a need to tell a personal tale so intense, it takes them over.

After reading the acknowledgements from Jay Crownover for her latest book, Honor... this was the case, in my opinion, She created this place, The Point and its series, Welcome to the Point. One of the central characters of all three books in the series was Nassir. It seems he was a very violent dark figure and totally captivated by a woman named Keelyn. Throughout the series, these two interacted and did the dance of each wanting each other but not acting on it; at least that was my impression, as I had not read the series.

But for Jay Crownover, Nassir would not leave her mind.... causing her to dive deep and write herself raw for him and Keelyn. This book is the first of a new series also located at The Point. I read it and was able to follow and understand the love story; however, I think reading the past series where Nassir and Keelyn were introduced would enhance the experience.

This has more of a character study of both people; of how they are necessary for each to function. How both need to be in each's orbit to make things right for them. We see why Nassir is who he is and how Keelyn represents at first all that could be good in his life... and then becomes the focus of his Honor in his heart and actions.

Both of these people have led lives which any other person would not survive let alone succeed. They are both equally strong, driven, in need of control and in love with the other.

There is a full and complete plot with past characters involved to add depth to this new series. What struck me most, though was the intense need for Ms. Crownover to relay her feelings of how past experiences shape us all. The inhumanity of Nassir's life shaped his... and the difficult circumstances Keelyn experienced shaped her...each too hard to fathom... but for them to also have at their core the ability to love and care for others was the miracle.

Honor is a passionate piece of Jay Crownover's heart and she put it on every page.

  1. Thank you so much! ~Jessica, InkSlinger PR

  2. I don't know if I could survive/live in the Point. I would try but probably fail at it!

    1. BECAUSE: I am not used to the rough/tough life. I have been living in a very safe environment my whole life so being able to navigate in the Point would take a long time getting used to.

  3. it'll be interesting though but maybe just a short while.
