Review of Dazed
First of all, I love the character name, Jagger! You just know he's gonna be swoon-worthy! What I love about the Connection series is not only are we introduced to new characters, but we still get to follow the lives of past characters--and I love River and Dahlia!
Jagger is River's cousin and his hot, a model and struggling actor. We've meet Aerie in the past books, she is Dahlia's friend and former roommate. In the previous Connection books, Aerie came across as confidant and strong. But she definitely showed a different side in Dazed. Her life was far from perfect. Her parents weren't in the picture most of her life, so she became close to her Uncle Ian and ended up having her heartbreak by her first boyfriend--which left her hesitant on future romantic relationships.
Jagger also is coming off a long-term relationship, so he has reservations of falling in love again. But when these two meet, the attraction is undeniable. They first meet unexpectedly (which I loved!) and then again at Dahlia's. These two danced around their attraction when they finally meet, but Aerie has her hesitation. Jagger is a bit persistent and has a great sense of humor to win her over. But their relationship it's not without some drama and angst. And what book is not complete without those?
Dazed is a fabulous and quick read in the Connection series. I simply can't wait for more. Ms. Karr does an awesome in "connecting" all her characters in her books. It gives it more in each book!
