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…
REVIEW: DAZED is the third storyline (novella) in Kim Karr’s contemporary, adult, erotic romance Connections Series. This is Aerie Daniels and Jagger Kennedy’s storyline-Aerie is Dahlia’s best friend and former employee at Sound Music: Jagger is River’s cousin, a runway model and, an up and coming actor. With his good looks, Jagger is every woman’s dream but his reasons for seducing Aerie may not be on the level.
The storyline follows as Jagger and Aerie are introduced to one another by River and Dahlia. The attraction is instant; from their accidental meeting earlier that morning at the local cupcake shop to dinner with friends, their mutual energy is too good to be true….but Jagger is in town for an audition that hits too close to home for Aerie Daniels. What does Jagger want from her and where will all of this go?
The world building reveals much of Jagger and Aerie’s family history and rocky relationships but there is one relationship of Jagger’s that is too close to the present which makes Aerie uncomfortable with thoughts of betrayal and manipulation. As the audition draws near so too does the anxiety of losing the man that she loves to someone from his past.
Kim Karr writes an intensely addicting series with the focus on the relationship and the probability of betrayal from past lovers and hidden secrets. We watch as the growing love between Jagger and Aerie is temporarily sidelined when Aerie is too quick to jump to conclusions and pushes away the man that she loves when his past threatens their present.
DAZED and the Connections series is emotionally passionate and will captivate the reader looking for a happily ever after-til the end.

I live in Florida with my husband and four kids. I’ve always had a love for reading books and writing. Being an English major in college, I wanted to teach at the college level but that was not to be. I went on to receive an MBA and became a project manager until quitting to raise my family. I currently work part-time with my husband and full-time embracing one of my biggest passions—writing.
I wear a lot of hats! Writer, book-lover, wife, soccer-mom, taxi driver, and the all around go-to person of the family. However, I always find time to read. One of my favorite family outings use to be taking my kids to the bookstore or the library. Today, my oldest child is in college and my twins are juniors so they no longer go with me on these outings. And although I don’t need to go to the actual store anymore because I have the greatest device ever invented—a Kindle, I still do. There’s nothing like a paperback. So now my four year old and I make dates out of going to the bookstore–it’s time I love and cherish.
I like to believe in soulmates, kindred spirits, true friends, and Happily-Ever-Afters. I love to drink champagne, listen to music, and hopes to always stay young at heart.
