Dazed by Kim Karr Review & Giveaway


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 🙂

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’s not looking for love—he just needs to make a change.

Aerie Daniels is a woman in control … until she meets Jagger. Her surprising connection with him leaves her dazed and it’s unlike anything she’s ever felt. But just when she lets her walls fall, she makes a startling discovery about Jagger that breaks her fragile heart into a million pieces.
To keep from losing the woman who’s changing his world, Jagger is willing to give up anything—including his career. But even that might not be enough to regain Aerie’s shattered trust…

Aerie Daniels
There’s something deliciously perverse about staring through the clear glass. All of
my senses engage as I wait in line—the fragrance that fills the air as the fire crackles
beneath the foil wrapped treats wafts under my nose, the beauty in each and every small
package as they line the shelves with tiny dots and colored sprinkles mesmerizes me, the
sound made as the silver sheet is peeled back to reveal the magnificence it holds
captivates me, and the anticipation of the taste makes my mouth water. Ummm… just
thinking of the first bite into the moist brown exterior with its bittersweet Belgian
chocolate complimenting the flavor of the Madagascar bourbon vanilla that oozes from
its inside has me trembling. The black and white cupcake—it’s simply perfection.
Amidst the skyscrapers in Los Angeles’ South Park neighborhood, Sprinkles is a
gem tucked away for those of us who seek out a small piece of heaven. I don’t come here
often, but when I do it’s for that one special treat. The menu describes it as, “Yin and
Yang.” An ancient proverb that says, “Complementary opposites, such as light and dark,
day and night, and masculine and feminine, seemingly may exist as contrary forces, but
are actually interconnected.” Simply put, it says one gives rise to the other and it’s true—
opposites attract. Without the vanilla inside, one could not possibly crave the chocolate
outside—looking at the two parts united has me drooling.
“You know what they say about staring through the glass,” a deep husky voice says
from behind me.
His words tingle my skin and my gaze snaps up. “Excuse me?” I stop short, in a
daze, not even sure what he just said I was so lost in my thoughts.
He chuckles. “You know what they say about staring through the glass,” he repeats.

After reading Dazed, I can honestly say I don’t think there is anything that I will not enjoy by Kim Karr!!! It takes a very skilled writer to tell a story in its entirety within the pages of a novella and Dazed truly has a beginning, middle, and end. There was something truly special about this book, and if you are a fan of the Connections series then trust me when I say you will absolutely adore this book!!

Jagger and Aerie’s story is one of love. We first met Aerie in Connected and we get to see a much different side to her here in Dazed. And, Jagger is River’s cousin so enough said, LOL!!! Every so often I come across a book that makes me reflect on my life and Dazed was one of those such books. We all may have felt at one point that love does not exist and/or that it does exist but just not for us and Dazed goes down this same path.

Kim Karr is truly exceptional and she is an author that I fully support and endorse. The characters, the emotions, and the situations in Dazed are quite real and not those of fairytales. Dazed can be read as a standalone but why limit yourself??? If you haven’t read the Connections series then now is a good time to start!

DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of Dazed in exchange for an honest review.
