New York Times bestselling author Jay Crownover brings heat and heart to Liliana Hart’s MacKenzie family with AVENGED…

Girl meets boy…

On the worst night of her life when she’s decided to take a drastic step that there is no going back from.

Girl is used to sitting by, letting fate deal cruel hand after cruel hand to good people with soft hearts and she’s had enough.

Girl thinks it’s time to fight back against fate and against men who aren’t careful with all the precious things a woman in love has to give him.

Fate shows girl who’s boss and turns her world and plans upside down without breaking a sweat.

Boy meets girl…

On the best night of his life when he’s decided that he’s going to make moves to be the man he was always meant to be instead of the man he was trained and conditioned to be.

Boy is used to a solitary life, quiet in the woods and knowing the only thing that might be looking for him is trouble and trouble is no longer his stock in trade.

Boy thinks it’s time to show trouble who’s boss, even if this trouble has big blue eyes and a body made to make men stupid. Trouble only gets the upper hand if the boy falls prey to its temptation.

Trouble turns the boy’s quiet, serene life sideways without any effort.

Trouble is fun and fate has a wicked sense of humor when it comes to this boy meeting this girl.


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’m looking forward to finding out what happens in the next Breaking Point novel, Honor! Stay turned for that one!
