A Connection Series Novella featuring Aerie Daniels and Jagger Kennedy (River Wilde's cousin) OUT ON APRIL 1ST, 2014.


Jagger Kennedy never went looking for fame, he just fell into it. After scoring a major modeling contract, his clean-cut good looks and charm catapulted his career. But when his actress girlfriend breaks his heart, he moves to L.A. to try his hand at acting. He needs to make a change, and the last thing he’s looking for is love…

Aerie Daniels is a woman in control … until she meets Jagger. Her surprising connection with him leaves her stunned, and it’s unlike anything she’s ever felt. But just when she lets her walls fall, she makes a startling discovery about him that breaks her fragile heart into a million pieces.

To keep from losing the one woman he can’t bear to be without, Jagger is willing to give up anything—including his career. But even that might not be enough to regain Aerie’s shattered trust…

My thoughts after reading.... 

I've been carefully thinking about ways on how to put my thoughts into writing without giving away any spoilers to those who haven't read the story yet... So I'll try my best...

If you've read Connected and Torn, you'll know that Aerie Daniels is Dahlia London's bestfriend---the catalyst in bringing Dahlia & River together... And the male-protagonist in this story is Jagger Kennedy ---River Wilde's first-degree cousin whom he met just a couple of months ago during his honeymoon.

When Aerie and Jagger meet, there is an instant connection. But...Aerie has apprehensions because of what happened to her in the past,  and Jagger has some emotional baggage with him as well. 

Aerie is just like any other girl who's had their heart broken into a million pieces. Its a natural reflex to be constantly---on-guard... To go only for things that are safe and familiar to her. But getting to know Jagger seems to weaken her defenses... and spending more time with him, subtly changes her views about life in general----and this unfamiliar feeling is what makes her apprehensive and vulnerable... And Aerie, with her type-A personality, hates feeling vulnerable. She needs to be in control...of every aspect in her life.

Jagger is really just your typical guy-next-door, only hotter....well okay, much more hotter---scorching even! Anyway..... I love him in the story... He's funny, kind and sweet. I wish he had a POV though... I would've really wanted to read about his feelings since DAZED is written all in Aerie's POV. He's just as swoon-worthy as his cousin River Wilde... How? Well you guys just have to get a copy to read more about his swoon-worthiness. I promise.

One lesson I learned from reading this story is...not to let fear hinder your chance at happiness. With love, there are no guarantees. But risking your heart of being broken beats not knowing what could've been... And I think that will hurt more in the end.

I love stories like this one. It leaves you lighter and more inspired when you reach the end...

I can't stop gushing about Jagger... He is definitely my new book-boyfriend!

What a great feeling it is to be given a chance to read in advance such an amazing love story. Congratulations Author Kim Karr to another story beautifully written!⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
