Review: Blurred by Kim Karr

Blurred (Connections #3.5)
by Kim Karr
Publication Date:  August 5, 2014
Publisher:  Penguin Group (USA) LLC
The story before the love story….

When he lost the only woman he’d ever loved, it seemed there was nothing left to live for.

Even as a boy, all Ben Covington ever wanted was to spend forever with Dahlia London, the beautiful girl next door...then one life-altering decision tore them apart and he was forced to leave her.

Now, despite having returned to win her back, he’s still alone. She’s with someone else—someone she’s never going to leave.

Resigned to a future without his former girlfriend, Ben numbs his broken heart in a haze of liquor and women. But then the only woman who ever even turned his head while he was with his girl reappears unexpectedly. And he’s never forgotten their one incredible night together. But will Ben’s destructive behavior destroy his future with her before it even begins?
(spoiler alert if you haven't read Connected and Torn)

My Thoughts:  I love, love, love Kim Karr's Connections Series.  River Wilde is to die for in Connected and Torn.  Then there was Jagger in we got to read Xander Wilde's story in Mended.....and oh how I loved Xander, but...the one guy I was never crazy about was Ben Covington.  Now you'll have to read the story to understand who Ben is, what role he plays, and what he does and has done. Well, Blurred has totally changed my mind about Ben.  I loved the way Kim Karr gives her readers insight into Ben's side of the story....and well, Ben is definitely a hottie.  He's pretty much hit rock bottom in this novella, but things begin to look up and I cannot wait to read more of his story in Frayed.  Now while all the hot guys in this series are just "YUMMY," they wouldn't be who they are without their leading ladies, all of which I loved and rooted for, and could more than hold their own against these Wilde men.  
Romance that is sizzling hot, guys that will melt your panties right off of you, and stories that keep you captivated from beginning to end.......The Connection Series by Kim Karr has it all.  Check it out.  I hope you love it as much as I do.
