Before I go on with my review I should explain something. The MacKenzie World novels were written by author Liliana Hart. Avenged is a crossover novella by Jay Crownover, who is the author that has given us the Marked Men, The Saints of Denver, and The Point series' which are all set in Colorado. This novella simply connects the two author's worlds. Although I have read Jay's series," I have not read any of the MacKenzie novels. That said, I had absolutely no trouble following the incidents in Avenged.
Benny and Echo.......
Benny is from The Point series and Echo is from The Saints of Denver series. The majority of this novella's setting is in Montana, the MacKenzie's home turf.
Benny is in witness protection. He has been relocated to a secluded mountainous region near Surrender, Montana. He lives alone in a small, rustic cabin with only the basics. Benny was not a good man. But circumstances gave him a second chance. He realizes how lucky he is to even be alive. He also realizes that he can't live his life the way he used to. But Benny wasn't sure how he could change.
One fateful night during a snowstorm, Benny literally found the incentive he needed to be a different person. Maybe not a good person, but definitely a better one.
Echo was used to tragic circumstances following her. Unfortunately, Echo grew up making one poor choice after another. One day she decided to clean up her life. Still, bad things continued to follow her. I admired how emotionally strong she is considering how many times she was 'knocked' down. Echo kept getting up, though. What she didn't know though was that Fate decided it was time for Echo to find her happily ever after.
Because this book is a little over 100 pages, I won't give away any details. I will say, however, that I was engaged in this book from page one. I mean that literally. The pace of the writing was steady. I loved the interactions and dialogue between Benny and Echo. Their conversations were realistic and believable. Also, the inner monologue gave me a good perspective to what they were thinking. Jay Crownover also did a fantastic job of connecting me to Benny and Echo.
Two people with dark pasts and poorly made choices in their lives were given a second chance at life. They were also given a chance at unconditional love. Something neither thought they would ever have. This was a great book!

These two characters find themselves through a dangerous, strange situation - so the beginning intrigued me, and then, as I got to meet this gentle giant, a beautiful bearded man, and a girl with a broken wing and a broken heart, I loved the story more and more. I especially loved our main guy, he's all a girl could ask for - a bad boy with a heart so big he'll change his ways for a woman who'll accept him fully. And I should add - heat level: call the firefighters.
"When he was soft and sweet, it melted something inside of me, something I didn't know was frozen until he touched it. When he was impatient and hungry, when he was demanding and forceful, I didn't melt... I burned."
Recommended - a beautiful love story - with a little bit of darkness, little bit of danger, turns and twists and unpredictability - of two lost souls finding their place in the world - next to each other.
Echo was a confident and forward female character. Ben was a dangerous yet delicious man with a beard. Ben was conditioned for trouble.
For a short story Avenged had all the necessary elements to formulate a quick connection. In the short span Jay created a believable attraction with hot passionate chemistry.
Echo met Ben on the worst night of her life while it became the best night of his life.
The crossover between The Point and Denver transitioned well. Avenged characters had bite in all the right sexy places. No question that Echo and Ben had chemistry and conflict. The story definitely had action and adventure.
The love story was desirable and easy to connect with. The overall plotlines of combining characters from three worlds was not too bad to follow. I found the story steady, interesting, and engaging.
