Blog Tour Stop: "Mended" by Kim Karr

Connections #3

Always in control, Xander Wilde considered life on the road to be a perfect fit for him. But when disaster strikes on the Wilde Ones’ latest tour, fate intervenes…and a newly single Ivy Taylor, the only girl he has ever loved, steps back into his life.

After moving past her painful breakup with Xander years ago, Ivy was poised to become the next big name in pop music…when suddenly she withdrew from the limelight—the same day she announced her engagement to her controlling agent, Damon Wolf.

Xander knows he should keep his distance. But once they’re on the road, he can’t resist pursuing her for a second chance. Yet a jealous Damon can’t let her go—and he’s keeping dangerous secrets that could destroy them all. 

When the three of them come together, everything falls apart. But if Xander and Ivy can hold tight to the bond that connects them, they just might have a chance at reclaiming the powerful love they thought they had lost forever....

Xander and Ivy’s story was a second chance romance that had me captivated from start to finish. In true Kim Karr fashion, it had twists, turns, and a few surprises along the way – which I loved.

“When you believe a lie for so long…does it become the truth?”

Life, heartache, and misunderstandings had broken up Ivy and Xander once upon a time. And now, years later, they are face-to-face in a situation where they simply can’t avoid each other. Life had once again intervened, but this time in their favor.

“He was everything I didn’t know I wanted and everything I needed.”

Ivy tried her hardest to ignore her feelings for Xander, but really, that was just impossible. Especially, when Xander was all for rekindling what they once had…what they STILL felt. It was not an easy journey for these two. It was a bit of a rollercoaster full of emotional angst where they took two steps forward and three steps back, at times. Just when I thought they would finally get everything sorted out, something would happen or someone would intervene.

Overall, Mended was a great read. The story line kept me engrossed and the characters were as always, amazing. I especially LOVED Xander’s character so, so, so much! His chemistry with Ivy was palpable, his love for her sizzled off the pages, and his devotion for his loved ones was clear as day. Simply put, Xander was uh-mazing…and hot to boot.

The installments in The Connections Series keep getting better and better. If you haven’t already, go one-click them. Really. You’ll love the Karr Men. I sure do. I cannot wait to read the next book!

“Xander Wilde, the boy, may have broken my heart once upon a time…but Xander Wilde, the man, is the one who mended it.”

About the author:
Kim Karr

I live in Florida with my husband and four kids. I’ve always had a love for reading books and writing. Being an English major in college, I wanted to teach at the college level but that was not to be. I went on to receive an MBA and became a project manager until quitting to raise my family. I currently work part-time with my husband and full-time embracing one of my biggest passions—writing.

I wear a lot of hats! Writer, book-lover, wife, soccer-mom, taxi driver, and the all around go-to person of the family. However, I always find time to read. One of my favorite family outings use to be taking my kids to the bookstore or the library. Today, my oldest child is in college and my twins are juniors so they no longer go with me on these outings. And although I don’t need to go to the actual store anymore because I have the greatest device ever invented—a Kindle, I still do. There’s nothing like a paperback. So now my four year old and I make dates out of going to the bookstore–it’s time I love and cherish.

I like to believe in soulmates, kindred spirits, true friends, and Happily-Ever-Afters. I love to drink champagne, listen to music, and hopes to always stay young at heart. <3
