Jagger Kennedy never went looking for fame, he just fell into it. After scoring a major modeling contract, his clean-cut good looks and charm catapulted his career. But when his actress girlfriend breaks his heart, he moves to L.A. to try his hand at acting. He’s not looking for love—he just needs to make a change.
Aerie Daniels is a woman in control … until she meets Jagger. Her surprising connection with him leaves her dazed and it’s unlike anything she’s ever felt. But just when she lets her walls fall, she makes a startling discovery about Jagger that breaks her fragile heart into a million pieces.
To keep from losing the woman who’s changing his world, Jagger is willing to give up anything—including his career. But even that might not be enough to regain Aerie’s shattered trust…
Dazed is a Connections Series Novella but it not necessary to read Connected and Torn prior to reading this. Also it has a beginning, a middle, and an end :)

I have always loved Kim Karr’s writing ever since I first read Connected and after reading ‘Dazed’ I’m even more in love with her writing and her ability to grasp you from the first page and have you hooked. Although it’s only a novella and a short read it’s just enough to satisfy you until Kim’s next full book.
‘Dazed’ centres around Dahlia’s best friend Aerie and River’s sexy as sin, model turned actor cousin Jagger. They’re connection is instantaneous and only grows as the book progresses. Unlike Connected, where Aerie exuded confidence, and strong-willed, we see a completely different side to her. We see just how vulnerable she really is, the walls that she has built around her and the need for order in her day to day life.
Enter Jagger, tall, gorgeous, amazing sense of humour..oh and he’s a model...ooh and he speaks French ~sighs~ did I mention he’s a model??.. Anyhoo... from the very first moment he met Aerie he gets her venturing out of her comfort zone, doing things and trying things that she would never normally try. He is a breath of fresh air for her and she finds herself happy and ok with doing them.
Both Jagger and Aerie have experienced heartache in the past, which led them to steering clear of falling in love again. But, these feelings that Aerie has are unlike anything she has ever felt before and that scares her. So Aerie tries to fight the feelings she has towards him, but Jagger will do anything to keep her in his arms and in his life. His attraction to Aerie is so much more powerful than what he has ever felt and he doesn’t want to lose that.
“I feel connected to him in a way I’ve never experienced. And my desire for him soars unlike anything I have ever felt.” ~ Aerie.
However, when Aerie discovers something Jagger has kept from her, she feels betrayed and broken hearted.
Will Jagger be able to fix things and win back Aerie’s heart and trust? Or is just too much?
Once again Kim has shown her amazing talent at writing a wonderful and captivating story so full of emotion that jumps out of the pages. You instantly connect with the characters, their story and their love. The only thing I wish was that it was longer. I didn’t want it to end.
I honestly don’t think Kim could deliver a bad book. She is one of my all time favourite authors and one that I will always look forward to reading.
I can’t wait to start on ‘Mended’ and getting Xander’s Story.
