BLURRED BLURB:   
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.

Spoiler-free review

Ben Covington had it all and then lost it.  One decision changed his life. He faked his death and left everything behind to keep his fiancĂ© safe from a drug cartel.  I’m sure you know the story if you have read the other books in the Connected series. If you are reading this review, you are probably curious to see if it’s worth it to pick up this novella…my answer is YES!

In Blurred, we finally get to learn Ben’s backstory as well his thoughts on the aftermath that ensued when he came back from the dead. Ben’s life turned into a blur, and this novella gives us Ben’s story through his eyes.  His poor choices caused some gut-wrenching emotional damage for others, but now we get to see the real Ben. I always wondered what Ben was thinking and feeling…was he just a cheater frat boy just trying to catapult his career or was there something more?

“I don’t even know who I am anymore. I’m alone and left to pick up the pieces to a life I don’t have. Rock bottom. It’s a phrase I never thought I’d use to describe myself, but it’s the only one that fits.”

Ben is such an important character in this series, and he deserved his own POV book.  Blurred doesn’t regurgitate the other books via his POV…but provides the insight into his decisions that affected every character in this series.

I was lucky to receive and read Frayed (Connections #4).  I am not going to spoil anything here, but I will say to Connections fans…that you want to read Blurred.  Frayed picks up where Blurred left off. Once again Kim is going to take you on an emotional road trip and you will get to see how everyone is this series is Connected…Get ready for Kim Karr blow you away with this one.

“With each step I took I couldn’t help but notice that her eyes were locked on mine…green to blue. In them I saw a reflection from so long ago, of a memory I’ve forgotten.”

FRAYED BLURB:
He didn’t think, he didn’t question—he just acted.

What she wanted, she took—without regard.

It was only one night, but it changed everything.

After losing his fiancĂ©e, Ben Covington is unsure he’ll ever love again. But he’s so deeply drawn to Bell Wilde that he’s thrown for a loop. Maybe it’s purely sexual chemistry that’s igniting their spark… or maybe it’s his second chance at love.

Bell Wilde has just gotten her life back on track and may not be up the challenge of Ben Covington coming back into it. However, once the spark is reignited…there’s no stopping it. But even if they both manage to pull together their frayed hearts, a secret from Bell’s past just might shatter them both.
