Review

To say that I absolutely adored this book and the characters of River and Aerie would be a complete understatement! From the very first moment – and the battle of cupcakes – I was intrigued and pulled into this story. I had to know what would happen with the cupcake thief and this lovely lady.

Aerie was an independent, strong female but she still had her insecurities. It was honestly one of my favorite things about her. Kim Karr wrote her in such a realistic way and I don’t think we often see that in female literary characters. I often find that they’re either over the top, exuding confidence and perfect, or that they are so broken and lost until a man comes along the way. It was so refreshing to have a woman be portrayed as somewhere in the middle – a woman who has a place in life, but still has fears and doubts.

Jagger was this confident, cool, and collected guy who seemed to know what he was doing. I loved that he was such a gentleman, a cook, and educated. I couldn’t get enough of the random facts that he would spew! Much like Aerie, he was just much different than most male characters I come across. He was definitely dominant, but not in a completely overt, powerful way. It was subtle and provided for a great change of pace! My heart also swooned in how steadfast he was with knowing what he wanted and never faltered from that. The nickname he gives to Aerie was so perfect – especially with all the references to feelings and what is going on in certain moments. It made me love Jagger even more!

Overall, this was a great short, fun, and light read. It’s not all angst and drama (though a little bit does surface). It makes you want more of these characters and to learn what the future holds. Furthermore, I love that I often felt the title being pulled into the story. There were many times the emotion was invoked, and as a reader, I loved that the title set much of the tone and expectations. I’d recommend this book to anyone who’s looking for a read where they can be completely immersed and fall in love with the main characters. Now I absolutely cannot wait to read the rest of the Connected series!
