Description

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.
I should have chosen to use my brain and talents to be one of the good guys, a hero, a man with dignity and worth.
I turned my back on dignity and sold my soul to the highest bidder, deciding to dance with the devil, instead. 
I couldn’t figure out how to help myself, so there was zero chance I knew how to save someone else.
That someone else was Noe Lee. She was the unkempt, unruly thief who was just as smart as I was and twice as street savvy. She was annoyingly adorable beneath the dirt and grime, and she was in trouble. In way over her head, I told myself it wasn’t my job to keep her from drowning. In the Point, it was sink or swim, and I wasn’t the designated lifeguard on duty. 
I shut the door in her face, but now she’s gone…vanished…disappeared without a trace. It took less than a second for me to realize that I wanted her back. 
When a woman comes along that melts all the frozen, hard things you’re made of; you’ll do anything you have to, to bring her home. 
What you see is not always what you get…and with a man like me, what you get is more than anyone ever bargained for.

    Jay is one of my favorite authors and her ability to look at a situation and turn it and her characters on its head while keeping you still loving everyone involved! The Point is a city that is the most corrupt city ever and the only people to protect it are the bad men that run it! Dignity gives Stark his time to shine and protect his city from the corrupt people in government positions all while learning how to love and letting people in. Noe is a little thief who happens to steal Starks heart and set his internal good on its head to help the people who needed it for better or worse!

    OK so I'm a HUGE Jay Crownover fan! Like not only is my kindle full but I have an entire bookshelf dedicated to her paperbacks because I love her writing so much!!! For me, it all started with Rule and I've loved every lead since, all the way up to Snowden Stark! Hot, built, tatted up, nerdy...YES PLEASE! Love this newest hero Jay! So I've got a serious thing for hot, smart, nerdy guys. The ones you didn't look twice at when you were a teen only drool over later, ya that's our hero! Life isn't easy for him but he tries to make the best of it! Bring in Noe Lee as the female lead! She not only stole his heart, she stole his stuff too!!! She's hot and smart! I love the dialogue between them, it only made me like her more. All of Jay's leading ladies are strong, unique and so interesting to read about. Although her leading men are still why I always pick up the most recent book! Not many write male leads as hot or intriguing as Jay Crownover! Loved seeing characters from other books, love that this series takes me outside of my typical comfort, romance zone! It's just unique, interesting, suspenseful, romantic and keeps me glued from page 1 until the end! That right there should have you 1 clicking this ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ star read! You can read it as a standalone but I'd get the series, then be prepared to go back and buy the Marked Men series, hah I loved it!!!! Enjoy Dignity, I sure did!!!

    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, and it was absolutely pure genius. Jay truly took their story to a whole other level and it paid off exceptionally. Snowden Stark and Noe Lee couldn't be any more different than they are physically—Stark is huge where Noe is tiny. But their minds are both extraordinarily sharper than anybody's. Their hearts have both been battered and bruised, which resulted to them preferring a life of isolation. The people closest to them, the ones who should've been there to protect and shield them from all the ugliness of life have failed them. Miserably. But I couldn't be any happier that they were both the ones who fit perfectly with each other. That they were the ones who filled the empty spaces of the other's hollow and hardened shell of a heart. I fell head over heels in love with these two and their story that will pierce through your heart. Right when their beginnings got touched up on in Honor, I was already intrigued as hell. With the level of intelligence they have, I knew their book would be nothing short of spectacular and unique. And Jay Crownover did not disappoint at all. The way they were together, that level of understanding and chemistry and intimacy between them was unlike any other I've read about. It was beyond fascinating. It all even ran deeper because they connected, not only with their hearts and souls, but most especially with those brilliant minds they have. This is yet another book that you should definitely read and add on to your TBR. It's one you wouldn't want to miss nor pass up on. Jay just has this way of knocking you sideways with her words and the significance of her stories. She makes every single thing relatable to her readers; she makes you feel like you're watching a movie every time you get sucked into her books, and that's one of the things I love about her and her writing.

    I absolutely adore Jay. All her books are so good. It’s not your typical mushy romance novel, it’s got just the right amount of edge. The Point series is one of my favorites.
  • DIGNITY is an automatic 5 star top read once again from Crownover!

    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 he know that a little thief has come in the night to steal away the hard wires he hides behind. Noe has earned her spot on the streets; if the Devil is how you get in, then Noe is one way you can get out. She's worked hard to erase the past she left behind as she helps victims of abuse escape. But one heist leaves her in the cross-hairs of the one man who can dig enough in to her past to find her and put her back in the limelight of her dangerous past. And now he's the only man who can help save her. The devil's in the details on this one as Noe slowly draws out more and more of Stark's personality as they race against time and a city that's after them. There is quote after quote that I could go back to that gutted me. Noe is a woman who is strong in a new way. She's been through something horrific that happens more than it ever should. And through it all she risks putting her self back in to the terrifying memories as she tries to help those going through a similar situation. Stark can't help but find beauty in the strengths that she shows. Noe awakens a part of Stark he hasn't felt since he was younger: the empathetic side that he only let loose when he vengeance got the best of him. Watching Stark go from machine to man, emotionally, was so drool worthy. He's not know for much words but when he opens his mouth, boy does he have some lines that will make any girl fall. (#theearrings ... they KILL ME). There are snippets to those that we've seen in The Point as well. Ben's got his moment (swoon!) as well as Bax and Race's reputations play a part. And don't think that Titus sits out when all hell breaks loose on his city; the good-cop-acting-bad is a key player as Stark and Noe plan to take down the biggest criminal The Point has seen in some time. With a city on edge and one of the most electrifying couple I've ever read, DIGNITY is an automatic 5 star top read once again from Crownover!
