Blog Tour: Mended by Kim Karr

Add to Goodreads:

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....
*ARC provided via NetGalley for an honest review*
At the age of 18, Xander believed he had found the love of his life. Xander and Ivy were two teenagers deeply in love. They had fought hard to make their relationship work and had many obstacles to overcome, namely Ivy's mom. And just when it seemed there was finally an end in sight to those roadblocks and their love story truly had a chance to shine, fate intervened. 

Fast forward 12 years later and neither has recovered from the love that got away. Xander shredded Ivy's heart and he has regretted it ever since the day he walked away from her. They have not seen each other since that fateful night all those years ago, until now. And seeing one another brings up all those feelings from so long ago. But it is too late because she is engaged to Damon Wolf. Fate isn't done with intervening when it comes to Ivy and Xander though. But what does it have in store for them this time?

I absolutely LOVED Xander and Ivy's story! There is just something about a long lost love story that appeals to me as a reader. There is a level of angst and heart-wrenching moments with these type of books that bump up the storyline. And as you can imagine, there is no short of angst with misunderstandings, lies and secrets. Can these two overcome the demons of the past and have a future together? Or is there too much hurt from the past to work through?

And as a bonus, we get more River and Dahl! How can you go wrong with not only getting a great new couple to love AND getting more of one you already do?! Kudos to Kim Karr for another great addition to the Connections Series. I am now eagerly awaiting Ben's story in Frayed.
