Blurred by Kim Karr
A Connection Series Novella featuring Ben Covington
The story before the love story….
When he lost the only woman he’d ever loved, it seemed there was nothing left to live for.
Even as a boy, all Ben Covington ever wanted was to spend forever with Dahlia London, the beautiful girl next door…then one life-altering decision tore them apart and he was forced to leave her.
Now, despite having returned to win her back, he’s still alone. She’s with someone else—someone she’s never going to leave.
Resigned to a future without his former girlfriend, Ben numbs his broken heart in a haze of liquor and women. But then the only woman who ever even turned his head while he was with his girl reappears unexpectedly. And he’s never forgotten their one incredible night together. But will Ben’s destructive behavior destroy his future with her before it even begins?
““If there is a moment in time that comes to alter the course of your life forever- mine would be the day Caleb Holt told me I had to disappear. I don’t even know who I am anymore. I’m alone and left to pick up the pieces to a life I don’t have. Rock bottom. It’s a phrase I never thought I’d use to describe myself, but it’s the only one that fits.”
Grade: A (4 out of 5 stars)
Review by Kayla
When I first began reading this novella about Ben I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about it. But I gave it a chance and I really enjoyed it. It was nice to see things from Ben’s perspective and to find out why some of the things that happened in the other books happened the way they did. I liked reading about the things that Ben did to get through the things that had happened to him. It wasn’t easy but I think it will get better. I am ready to read Frayed.
All Ben ever wanted was to spend his life with Dahl. He never thought that he would have to leave her and when he came back he didn’t think she would have moved on. Ben is left without his former girlfriend and a broken heart. He uses woman and liquor to numb his feelings. But then he runs into the women who he didn’t think he would see again. Bell. I wasn’t sure how it was going to go. I won’t ruin it for anyone. I enjoyed seeing things from Ben’s point of view and a lot of things make more sense now.
