Overview

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....

Publishers Weekly
05/05/2014
Karr’s faltering third Connections contemporary (after Torn) returns to the unglamorous world of midlist rock bands on tour. Xander Wilde is the road manager for the Wilde Ones, a band on the verge of a breakout. He must scramble to find a replacement frontman after two leads drop out. Xander’s old high school flame, Ivy Taylor, who recently debuted as a pop singer before suddenly abandoning her performance career, offers to fill in. The two are forced to endure the tensions left over from their failed romance, but despite rapid-fire peril, love manages to bloom. The first-person narration leans heavily on repeated constructions and words, further confusing a plot that includes lurid, improbable tragedies and implausible events. Karr sets up and removes obstacles without fanfare so her protagonists can conveniently move on to the next threat, but she spackles on plenty of passion and nostalgia to help readers overlook these flaws.
