What if a “Once in a Lifetime” could happen twice?
In Dahlia London’s world, happily ever after is a far cry from reality. Her soul has been left completely shattered by tragedy. But a surprising reunion with someone from her past is about to give her a reason to love again…
When rock star River Wilde comes back into Dahlia’s life, their super-charged connection runs deeper than either of them ever expected. The more time they spend together, the more intense their relationship becomes, and Dahlia believes at last she has found her soul mate.
But as old bonds fade and Dahlia’s grief begins to lift, her guilt and confusion remain. River desperately wants to be the one who mends what’s been broken—but with a past that refuses to stay buried, is it possible for their future to begin?

Casey’s Thoughts ❤
Do you believe in love at first sight? Connected and Torn by Kim Karr is the story of Dahlia and River. But lets not say that it is a bed of roses. In fact, how can one night change your life? What about a night that you least expect, a touch like none other, and running because you are terrified of what it might do to you?
That is the story of Dahlia. When her fiancé is killed in a horrific accident, she is left in pieces. When her best friend decides to get her out of her slump by sending her on a business trip to interview River Wilder from The Wilde Ones. There is one thing she doesn’t take into account… his look and touch sent her running. Will he recognize her? Will they start what the stars aligned so many nights ago?
Connect and Torn were both fabulous reads for me! River Wilder is a little different than your typically rocker. In fact, I feel for him hard from the night in college, but there are reasons why things happen in our lives. River is the total package. I felt he gave Dahlia everything from day one. Put himself out there, and it was up to her to take it. He took the good with the bad.
Dahlia is strong and has experiences one of the biggest lies a person could ever face. In fact, I think she handled it very well. Dahlia once she decides to love she does with her whole heart, and thats why letting go of her past is so hard.
I will have to say that this book will have connections that will have you going OMG! WTH? By the end of Torn, you will start putting pieces together, and when the lightbulb goes off it would light up the state of Texas!
I really enjoyed these two books, but they were slow reads for me. They were FABULOUS books, I loved the story line, characters, and everything about it… but, it took me a week to read each of them for me. (Which is out of my norm.) Maybe I had to let River Wilder soak in with each word? Regardless, I highly recommend Connected and Torn by Kim Karr to anyone with a ❤ for love at first sight, rockers, twists & turns, and a huge lightbulb moments!
