Dazed is a Connections Series Novella but it not necessary to read Connected and Torn prior to reading this. Also it has a beginning, a middle, and an end :)
Meet him first in the Epilogue of TORN
The cover is as sexy as what is inside of this book. I totally swoon over it the first time I saw the cover of Dazed, and reading the two previous books of the series, I just knew I needed to read this one.
Finishing film school, Jagger Kennedy wanted to be an actor primarily, but ended up being one of the most sought-after model of the industry. He has the looks, the attitude and the body. So makes me wonder, why in the heck would his ex-girlfriend did that utterly despicable thing she did? Arrrghhhh…. He moved to LA to get away from her, at the same time try his luck with acting. Love wasn’t really on his priorities, but he badly needed change.
Aerie Daniels – type A personality, who loves to stick to rituals and loves to have her control. That is, until Jagger steps into her life and made her lose all her inhibitions. She didn’t see her coming and wasn’t really prepared for him to suddenly crash into her life and change it 180 before she could say stop. Just when she was ready to break the walls that surrounds her heart, secrets about Jagger’s past were revealed that has the potential to break her heart into pieces.
But she was more important to him that Aerie could even realize, Jagger was willing to give up, even his dreams of acting for her – would it ever be enough?
One thing Aerie has to do is to follow the advice of this guy:
I understand her concerns, and her past doesn’t really help that much – but this guy had been nothing buy wonderful to her. Yes, he didn’t really share his past, but he was willing to tell her everything. But she had already made up her mind, and she allowed her emotions to rein her.
I loved the both of them together – they totally complemented each other. Him making her do things she doesn’t usually do, at her pace and comfort was really sweet. She dropped her control, and allowed herself to experience new things, which she doesn’t normally do. She was living her life after a very, very long time. So it saddened me a great deal when she decided to break things off with him because someone from his past suddenly made a comeback. She didn’t trust him enough, she didn’t trust their feelings for each other enough to hold on to what they have. I love what Jagger said in the story when he mentioned that it was not the amount of time, but the quality of it. Good thing she got her head straight and finally saw the light.
Jagger’s is shorter than River’s story, but didn’t make it less beautiful or sexier. Kim Karr still gave her readers the right amount of drama and the right amount of steam that will have her readers sighing in contentment. Although I would have loved it more if Jagger has his own POV :D

✿✿✿Please feel free to check out my author page on facebook.You may also contact me at AuthorKimKarr@gmail.comI 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. <3
