**4 Alice in Wonderland Stars**


Dazed is a sweet novella centering on Dahlia's best friend, Aerie Daniels and River Wilde's cousin, Jagger Kennedy. I adored this book on its simplicity of connecting two people. The characters were likable and lovable and you couldn't help but connect with them. Jagger is really a sweet guy who helped Aerie to open up and try new things. I love how Jagger called her "Alice," since he took her on adventure...more

Short and entertaining read. I enjoyed Aerie and Jagger’s story. We meet Aerie is the previous books. She is Dahlia’s best friend. Aerie is sweet, smart, responsible...and always in control. She lives by her set of rules and doesn’t want this to change. Until Jagger. When she meets him she starts to feel things she had never fell before. He forces her to step out of her comfort zone and show her how to let go.

Jagger wants a change. Due to a woman that hurt him, he decides to change his city...more

When a hot stranger ends up cutting in line at the cupcake shop and purchases the cupcakes Aerie wanted, she’s left lusting after him and just a little “dazed”.

Later she discovers the cupcake thief also known as Jagger is River’s cousin the same guy she was planning to meet at River’s.


Aerie’s first experience with a guy ended when she discovered he was only using her for her family connections in Hollywood. Since then she doesn’t trust men or allow herself to get attached...more
4.5 Sweet Cupcake Thief Stars!!!

So, I pretty much became a loyal fan of Kim Karr and her addictive Connections series back when I read book 1, Connected; one of my very fave reads of 2013!

Kim Karr’s storytelling just has a magical quality to it that I have come to love. I become completely immersed in her books and form an instant connection with the characters and the tale. Dazed was no different. So, just like Aerie, I gazed into the looking glass, fell in, and embarked on the crazy journey i...more

2.5 - Feeling a bit mis-lead stars.

I firstly want to be honest and say that apart from reading appx 16% of Connected I don't have a huge frame of reference for this author or series. Whether that is a bad or good thing I will leave you too decide, I will admit I was happily looking to spend my weekend reading through the books in order, but I couldn't get on with the writing in book one, so I jumped straight to Dazed, as it has been advertised as ok to read stand-alone.

That-said I started it wi...more

**Dazed generously provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**

As a total fan girl of Connected, Torn, and the super talented author, Kim Karr, I just knew Dazed wouldn’t disappoint. And it didn’t. Hooked from the very beginning over cupcakes, Dazed didn’t take long to read. It’s a novella centering around River Wilde’s cousin, Jagger Kennedy and Dahlia Wilde’s best friend Aerie Daniels. The titles of these books suggest a state of feeling. I love that aspect about...more

4.5 Jagger Kennedy Stars

This was short and oh so sweet! What started as a little flirtation at a bakery and some cupcake swindling turned into a full on romance of perfection!

While I will admit that Aerie has not always been my fave character...Jagger Kennedy has caused me to overlook her crazy type-A self! This sweet, sexy, confident man with his easy laid back swagger and trivia filled mind is fabulous. Aerie did not stand a chance against him...I do not think any female would!

I loved how the...more

~~~ A story that was written for everyone who doesn't believe they can love~~~

Dazed was beautifully written. The emotions the characters go through are so real. The way the author makes you feel the happiness that the character is going through or the sadness in her heart is amazing!

I loved Aerie and Jagger story! It was a perfect mix of emotions! Everything about their story was amazing. These characters make you fall for them from the first...more

***4 Sweet Cupcakes and Dazed Stars!***

Dazed is a Connections novella and tells us the story of Aerie, Dahlia’s best friend, and Jagger, River’s cousin.

The scene at the first few pages got me all warm and smiling, it’s so cute and sweet that I imagined it happening like in the movies, or at least in one of those romantic TV show episodes.

The independent heroine, supportive friend, sweet, emotional girlfri...more

They had two things in common… broken hearts and cupcakes. And with those two things, what could possibly stop them from jumping right into each other’s arms? The cupcakes alone would have had me falling in love. Clearly, I wasn’t the only one!
Aerie has a very controlled life. She knows what she likes, she knows what she wants out of life and she doesn’t deviate from her routine. But what she does not expect is for some guy to distract her from her mission… those cupcakes. But he does. I would h...more

Recommends it for: Lovers of the Connected series!

Jagger, um yeah, Jagger. When I think about Jagger, pictures of a certain other Jagger come to mind. Anyone remember Jagger Cates from GH?

And even though he’s much older now, (recently turned 42 years young), he still looks sexy as hell!

Any GH fan will tell you; this man had all sorts of swagger. His presence graced GH for a little over two years when he was in his early 20’s but he sure made one beautiful impression. Not only an actor but also a former Calvin Klein underwear model, I can’t help...more

 photo dazedcasting_zps14901add.jpg

Dazed is another sexy and charming new adult romance from Kim Karr - another fantastic addition to the Connections series.

This time it’s the turn of Aerie to find a little love in a difficult world. Aerie, if you recall, is Dahlia’s best friend and has stuck by her through thick and thin. She’s a type A personality, likes to be in control of every part of her life to the point of OCD, she’s a little untrusting and she’s never really enjoyed sex.

Enter stage left – Jagger Kennedy. Jagger is not ju...more

Dawn's Dazed Review
Another 5 star read from Kim Karr! This is only a novella but its fun, flirty, and moving. The author never ceases to amaze me how she can bring out so many emotions in me in such few words. It doesn't take half of a book for me to connect with her characters and I love that.

In Dazed, we get to see a whole new side to Aerie. We already knew she is best friends with Dahlia and very loyal and kind of a prude. But in Dazed, we get to see what made Aerie that way. What happened that she felt the ne...more

ARC Received for an honest review

I have been slow getting to this series, but in the past few weeks I have read both Connected and Torn, and have been eagerly awaiting Dazed.

And I was not disappointed!

I have loved Aerie Daniels since we first met her in Connected and Torn. She is Dahlia's best friend and has been River and Dahlia's biggest cheerleader since... forever!

Jagger Kennedy is River's long lost cousin, and is just sex on legs. Really, just throw me in a room with Rive...more

Thank God the Connection series continues on as we have attached ourselves and have fallen in love with All of Kim Karr's characters. Finally a story about our beloved Aerie Daniels, Dahlia's sassy, beautiful, ambitious, career oriented best friend. Life for Aerie was going along perfectly with no distractions just as she likes it and has come attuned to, that is until actor/model JAGGER walks into her life. And boy, his presence is known!!! Aerie's life as she knows it will be shaken up a bit a...more

**ARC provided by NetGalley in exchange for honest review**

I seriously did not expect to love this book as much as I did. It’s only a novella, for crying out loud. But I was hooked on Jagger and Aerie from 10%. Don’t tell River, but I might even love his cousin more than him. Which is ridiculous because we only get Jagger for a novella, in contrast to River’s two books with Dahlia. But, I guess this novella showcases the power of Kim Karr’s writing and the fact that her books get better each tim...more

Jagger Kennedy is all I'm saying ;)



Here's my thinking this series can't possibly get any effin better, in walks the cousin Jagger Kennedy

So if you've read the first two books in this series you of already met Aerie, Dahlia's best friend.

Another heart-wrenching, beautifully written story from Karr

She certainly has a keen eye for details and for bringing out the ugly emotions in the best of us. This will pull at your heartstrings like it did mine.

In DAZED, we learn the story of Aeri...more

Aerie Daniels follows a routine, including what side of the closet she dresses with. She also keeps her heart guarded from loving again. Once she was naive and her innocence left her heartbroken. If someone had told her that buying cupcakes will change her life she would've laughed. However, this is exactly what happens. An encounter with a man that leaves her speechless and without her favorite cupcakes.

Amazing novella! Kim Karr does it again. Huge bonus preview for Mended (Book #4) is excellent.

This book was a little better than the first book, and honestly I didn't bother reading the second book int the series. The novella told me enough to be able to understand. While I didn't feel my review would be more on the positive side, I decided to leave my only review here and not on my blog or Amazon.

I didn't connect with these characters. I don't know if it's the writing style or what. The formatting was whacked again. The amount of mundane detail really bogged down the story, so much in...more

Meg's Review:
First we were Connected, then Torn. Now, we are Dazed. Kim Karr chooses the most apt titles for her books. You know exactly what you are getting and this was another seamlessly delivered book. I read it in one sitting. It was a story you couldn't pull away from.

Aerie and Jagger are definitely going to rank up there on my "Couple Love" list. They were hilarious and wonderful. Aerie was a favorite of mine from the first books, so I was thrilled to...more
This book was hot hot hot! Jagger was sexy right from the onset of this book. His character didn't hold back he went after what he wanted which was Aerie! She was a very career oriented woman with a tainted past that kept her from sound relationships. I loved the way they connected so easily. THis book was short but intense enough that I read it in a day! This relationship went through challenges but Jagger never swayed in his feelings for Aerie. Trying his best to convince her of how he felt ab...more

Ok ladies...we all fell in love with River Wilde and placed him on the forever book boyfriend list. Well...make room because Kim has done it again! YES she has! She has given us Jagger Kennedy the cousin to River and OMG he is freaking fantastic. A true panty melter.
