C.K. You won't be lost. I haven't read the MacKenzie books either. I have read all of the Saints of Denver books. I only read the first Point book.

5 Avenged Stars

I read most of the MacKenzie series but none of the novellas and I wasn’t lost at all. <3

Pop-Tart! I loved that nick name.
I loved this book. Its sweet innocents and how if you want something bad enough you’re going to find a way to make it happen.

Ben is gruff but sweet and Echo is determined and cute.

They make one heck of a couple.

I LOVED the narration it was perfection! <3

Jay Crownover stunned me with Avenged, masterfully weaving together The Saints of Denver, Welcome to The Point and The Breaking Point in one novella. I was also exceptionally surprised to feel empathy for a character who had previously embraced everything dark and dangerous in order to maintain his illusion of power.

We meet Ben/Benny as Novak's right hand man in the Welcome to the Point series, grasping onto his illusion of power by any means possible with little to no remorse as a survival
Lets start of by saying this is a new author for us a we throughly enjoyed our first read by them.We enjoyed it so much that after finishing this story and that of Never Surrender we purchased two more books in the MacKenzie series.We are looking forward to reading more about those MacKenzie men.

I love this stories plot and it character's .I found them to be engaging, funny, playful,serious,heat-broken,dangerous,regretful,lost,protective,love able,sexy,sweet,caring making them so intriguing to r

Light is easy to love. Show me your darkness. ~R. Queen

I love books bathed in darkness with a sliver of light, as they dig deeply into the depths of hell but somehow find a bit of heaven. Jay Crownover is a mix master of black, shadowy stories that still shine like gold, such as her latest romance, Avenged. Avenged is the perfect fusion of light and dark, heaven and hell, and sin and salvation. Scorching and spine-tingling, Avenged is the newest Jay Crownover sensation that is full of soul and s

4.5 stars! Jay has done it again!

This is a great sheet story with characters from the Point and Saints of Denver world's from Jay Crownover, set in the Mackenzie world. Readers need no prior knowledge of any of these world in order to enjoy Avenged, so it is both the perfect introduction for be readers and a great return for fans. Good characters, great chemistry, great fun to read!

A fast paced novella about finding the right person at the wrong time. You do not really need to have read the books or series these characters were introduced in to enjoy this one, anything pertinent is explained. But with that being said, fans of Jay Crownover's series will love how she weaved several of book worlds together and added some MacKenzies too.

Two people in need of redemption, acceptance, and forgiveness find themselves thrust together and their collision will be the catalyst for c

Jay Cownover is an author that can redeem the worst kind of characters and make you love them and this novella is the best example of this. One criminal hidden from the world, one girl searching for purpose in life meet under the most unexpected circumstances and find themselves and love.

I think this story is a gift to the fans of this author’s work as it is a mashup of three of her worlds and as I don’t want to spoil the surprise she has for us I will kee

UGH. Amazing. I really truly keep waiting for Jay to write something that doesn't just blow me away but that hasn't happened yet. This book was no exception to the awesomeness that Jay writes. I loved every minute that my face was plastered in this book. I read all of the Mackenzie series in preparation for this and this book blew those out of the water (sorry Liliana!). I was worried because, I didn't care much for that series. The books were SO short and the instalove was WAY strong, but they ...more

This crossover novella was the best of all worlds! I get a little bit of The Point, I get a little bit of The Marked Men, I get a little bit of the Saints of Denver, and I get a whole lot of swoon, honestly whats not to love here?! This crossover was a deliciously quick read that had me grinning from ear to ear with every cameo and surprise name drop that hit me straight in the feels.

It felt good to get back into Jay's writing. I took a little break from her last year and now she is reading like

Benny and Echo meet under less than ideal circumstances. Benny is in WITSEC and stranded in a remote cabin wasting away. Echo has gone on a mission to confront the man her sister fell in love with and, apparently broke her heart. Her sister committed suicide and Echo was looking for someone else to blame and had her sights set on whatever MacKenzie brother she felt was responsible for her sister's despair. Benny finds Echo on the side of the mountain in her wrecked car and bleeding all over the ...more

Oooh when The Point meets the Saints of Denver things GET GOOD! Ben and Echo have walked on the wrong side of the tracks in their towns for longer than they can remember. But when Echo's mission to find the man her sister left behind leads her straight into the arms of dangerous Ben... Talk about a bad boy.

I loved Ben's character and would've loved to see even more about him. Crownover is exceptional at writing b

4.5 Stars in my Sky!

I’m a big Jay Crownover fangirl so was always going to enjoy this one but it surpassed my expectations of a JC novella!

Not only do we get Jay’s usual swagger but we’re also treated to new characters, old friends and all the crossover fun!

We meet Echo in the most dramatic of circumstances. She’s sweet, damaged and all kinds of funny. Ben is living out in the middle of nowhere in Montana, the home of the Mackenzie’s when Echo makes a dramatic entrance.

I have to admit it took me

A girl from Saints of Detroit and a boy from The Point. Can it work? Yes it can and it works so well. Book start when girl goes to Montana one thing on her mind but bad weather surprise her. She had accident and hero will help her. He helps her to heal and they both will help each other. I really liked this book.

What can I say? Jay is one of the only authors whose entire work I've read. If you love a good story, hot guys, bad boys, and tatts, this is the author for you. Five stars as always, and much love for entertaining the hell out of me.

WOW!! Jay you totally surprised me with your anti-hero. But oh man did I love Benny! Echo was the perfect women for such a broken man. I would have never guessed that he would be the one to heal her.

Let me just tell you..... I was NOT a fan of Benny in the past. I was a hardcore in love with Bax kinda girl. But oh my lanta..... the second he became Ben.. be still my heart. Even though he will never fully be Ben, the transformation he and Echo make is probably my favorite story line yet. Another amazing book for Jay!! ❤❤❤

I've loved Jay Crownover's inked men for a long time, so I was excited to read this one. Seeing Benny and Echo get a story and come together really did this reader some good! I won't go into long detailed thoughts, after all, this is only a novella and not a novel, so I will just say this: get this. Right now. It is 4 bonfires worthy, and will have you pulled in from the start. The sexual tension, the protectiveness of Benny, the brokenness of Echo, will all take you on a heart pounding ride. I' ...more

A great novella packed full of one of Jay Crownover's sexy, delicious bad boys. Set in the wilderness of Montana and the equally sexy Mackenzie brother's hometown. True to a Jay Crownover story, the girl is sassy, feisty, and beautiful. She's got a sharp mind that makes her sharp tongue give the boy a run for his money. As always the chemistry between the two characters is intense and off the charts... not just the sex (although it was ridiculously hot), you'll know what I'm talking about when y ...more
