**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

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
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

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.

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

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!

~~~ 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

***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.

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!

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

The Cupcake Thief

Jagger Kennedy is a successful model who moved to LA after his relationship with his actress girlfriend ended. There he meets Aerie Daniels. An explicable connection grew between them strengthened by the fact that Jagger was River's cousin and Aerie is Dahlia's best friend.

The spark that started the day they had met only grew fiercer as Jagger and Aerie spent more time together, giving in to their attraction to one another. But when Jagger's past threatens t

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

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
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

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

I must say Jagger has some swag when it comes to the ladies, and one in particular, "so about lunch tomorrow. I thought you should know - I really want to see you gain. It's not just about your uncle." I mean River that boy can only get you so far in life but I know that Jagger is grateful to be related especially when it comes to getting a chance with Aerie, "he bites his lip and the sight takes my breath away. "That makes me one lucky bast**d to be his cousin." He's teasing me back. I'm alread ...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.

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.

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.

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
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.

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-gi
