Avenger (Doms of Mountain Bend Book 2) Kindle Edition
Poppy Flynn gets bored easily, never staying with a job or relationship for long. After a year of cancer treatments, she’s in remission and ready for a change. Her new position as manager on an Idaho sheep ranch excites her as much as the neighboring, sexy, attitude-riddled rancher. Her encounters with Dakota Smith amuse her until he takes over her tour of his private club. Then, all she wants is more of him, any way she can get him.
Searching for the man Dakota Smith knows is responsible for his mother’s murder is his top priority, and he doesn’t have the time or patience for a relationship. So, why does he find himself concerned over one irritating redhead’s underweight appearance and the fatigue he sees on Poppy’s face when she pushes herself? Unable to resist getting involved, he vows nothing will keep him from avenging his mother, no matter how close he and Poppy become.
Thwarting an attempt on Poppy’s life shakes Dakota, but not as much as finally locating the man who killed his mother. Soon he’s forced to choose between honoring his vow of revenge or go to the only woman he’s ever loved when she needs him most.DISCLAIMER: This steamy, contemporary Western romance contains elements of mystery, suspense, and power exchange. Please do not buy this book if any of these offend you.

The story begins in Houston, Texas, where Rose Flynn meets Constance Mayfield, the biological mother to Poppy—a child she gave up at birth. Poppy is now thirty-two and in remission from cancer, Hodgkin Lymphoma. The only real hope she has to stay in remission is a familial donor. Constance refuses to help or to give the name of the father and threatens them with a lawsuit. Poppy wants her parents to stop searching, knowing the cost is so high.
Poppy is a highly educated woman, holding three degrees and two certifications. She had decided to use her degree in animal husbandry and moves to Mountain Bend, Idaho, to work on a sheep ranch. Part of her job is going to town to order feed—and on her visit, she will run into a man—literally. While he is almost rude, she doesn’t let that stop her—he plays a role in her fantasies—and then she sees him riding a stallion late at night, which only adds to it.
Dakota Smith is a man on a mission, one his best friends are aware of. It’s been twenty years since his mother was murdered by a man named Victor, and he is determined to find him and take justice into his own hands. Dakota is a dominant man that doesn’t form attachments. While he is part owner of Spurs, all the subs learn quickly he is only a play partner.
The story has one woman fighting to live, and one man determined to take a life—what neither one expected was finding each other and the chemistry between them. Poppy wants to thrive and enjoy life, learning new experiences—and that may include a sullen rancher. Dakota can’t enjoy life for wanting revenge—but there is something about Poppy that both angers and excites him.
“He’d baffled, frustrated, and excited her from their first encounter outside the feedstore and continued to do so weeks later. With Dakota, the more time Poppy spent with him, the more she craved.”
Poppy makes friends with several of the ladies in town and even encourages her employer to attend the town picnic held at Rolling Hills Ranch. An invitation from Lisa to visit Spurs will have a vanilla Poppy exploring a kink lifestyle at this BDSM club. While Master Dakota claims he doesn’t want anything to do with her, he proves different at the club—and there is even a second visit with a ménage scene.
The story will keep the pages turning as it unfolds, with new connections and experiences, a touch of danger and suspense, and uncertainties. It also has a slow-building relationship between Poppy and Dakota. What starts as a one-sided attraction, changes and then agreeing to scene together at Spurs, is only for the experience—and neither one want any commitments. With Poppy’s future uncertain—will her cancer return, will a donor be found, and where will she go from there. When Dakota finds his nemesis, will he allow his hatred and need for revenge to destroy him, his friendships, and a chance at happiness?
“Sometimes you have to let the past go to see the future.”
I enjoyed Dakota's character. He was well developed and he wasn't so hung up on being a Dom that he failed to notice what was going on around him. And Poppy's character did not fail to entertain me. In fact, both of these characters showed human flaws and human emotions. And emotions HAVE to be in a book like this. The last two books that I couldn't get into? The author failed to bring emotions into the story. Sex isn't emotion. Meeting someone and panting over them isn't emotion. Poppy and Dakota had lots and lots of emotion between them.
In fact, I loved the secondary characters in this book too, which tells me I'll be reading the series. Thank you BJ Wane for knowing how to write a dominant personality (and for knowing the different between subservient and submissive).
Also, I think the blurb hinted at Poppy knowing something about Dakota's killer? That wasn't the case at all. Their side stories didn't interconnect at all.

I recommend this book whole heartedly, unless BDSM and spanking are a no for you.
I often get my echo dot to read these stories to me while I knit the only problem being I tend to get too engrossed that I drop stitched ! Luckily I am a veteran at it (knitting not BDSM)😂😂. I can correct it.
Another master piece by BJ thankyou.💓💓
