Blog Tour & Giveaway: Mended [Connections 03] by Kim Karr!

Publication date: 3rd June 2014
Paperback edition: 304 pages
Source: Kindle
Rating: 5 stars

Synopsis: Music has the power to heal, but not all broken hearts can be mended.

Always in control, Xander Wilde considered life on the road to be a perfect fit for him. But when disaster strikes on the band’s 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 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 to reclaim the powerful love they thought they had lost forever.

Favourite quote: "If you love someone, set them free. If they come back, they're yours."

I was seriously excited to read this book! I'm a big fan of the series and I couldn't wait to read Xander's story! I do have to admit that I started my ARC of this book months ago and it took me ages to read! It wasn't that I wasn't enjoying the book, but I put the book down one night and then I got so caught up in other books that I forgot about it! I did remember what happened in it though and when I started reading again, I was hooked! The plot of this book was amazing! I thoroughly enjoyed it! There were also twist and turns added into the plot that I didn't see coming! The plot developed at the perfect pace to keep me wanting to read on and find out what was going to happen next! There were also plenty of sexy scenes in the plot too! And I mean sexy ;) The characters were amazing! Xander was the main male character and he was so hot! Xander was introduced in one of the other books in this series and he was a secondary character! This book was his story and I loved getting to know Xander more! Xander had always intrigued me in the other books too! I just adored Xander! There were layers to him, and I felt like the layers were peeled away as the story unfolded! Xander was also told some pretty upsetting news in this book and my heart went out to him! I don't know what I would have did it I was ever put in the situation he was in! It did rock Xander, but he used what he was told to his advantage, which I loved! Ivy was the main female character and she was just amazing! I had so much respect for her! There were certain times in this book where I wondered why Ivy made the decisions she did, but then I found out her reasons! I could see that every decision she made was to protect Xander and his band! This showed me just how far and how much she was willing and did give to protect Xander! It made me love Ivy even more because it showed what kind of person she was! I loved that this book was written from both Xander and Ivy's point of views! It really helped me connect with them more and I loved getting to see their love for each other through both of their eyes! I also adored that nearly all the characters from the other books in this series where in this book a lot! I'm really excited to read the next book in this series! I know that it's not going to be about Xander and Ivy, because the ending of this book was absolutely beautiful, but I'm sure they'll make appearances in it! The cover for this book is absolutely stunning! I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it! I love how well it suits the other covers in the series too! Big thank you to Kim for an ARC of Mended and also for having me on her Blog Tour!
