The Connections series continues with this spin-off novel.
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 fiancée, Ben Covington is unsure he’ll ever love again. But when he sees Bell Wilde, he’s so deeply drawn to her, that he’s thrown for a loop. Maybe it’s purely sexual chemistry that’s igniting this spark between them...or maybe it’s his second chance at love.
Bell has just gotten her life back on track and may not be up for the challenge of Ben Covington. But once they’re reunited, there’s no holding back—even if a secret from Bell’s past just might shatter them both.
4.5 StarsBen! Ben! Ben! Ben Covington! Who knew he was so hot and domineering! I love his story. It truly is a story about second chances and redemption. And I'm so happy that Ben found his HEA.
We all know Ben's story and what happened between his one-time love, Dahlia, back in Connected and Torn (and shame on you if you haven't read those!). But in Frayed, it was finally great to get inside Ben's head and how much stress and guilt he dealt with the entire time. And not only do we get inside Ben's head, but we also get a glimpse inside S'Belle. Their connection from the past also caused her a lot of pain and seeing her finally grow and become a stronger woman in Frayed is a beautiful part of the story.
Ben and S'Belle have such a strong attraction with each other in this book, I just wanted to them to find their HEA with each other. But of course, it's not that simple. Family, friends and their past keeps sneaking up on them--causing them to be hesitant to move forward with each other. And not only that...a big secret that Belle holds causes a lot of hurt and confusion for them.
Frayed is such a fantastic story, that I think if you were never a fan of Ben (I was not a fan!), I guaranteed after reading this, Ben will be a top book boyfriend. I was so pleased with the end of this book, but still hope we get a bit more of Ben and Belle in the next couple of books in this series!
