Connected Blog Tour & Giveaway

What if a ‘Once in a Lifetime’ could happen twice?

Suffering from a past full of tragedy, Dahlia London's soul has been left completely shattered. Happily ever after is a far cry from reality in her world. But, when she is reconnected with her past, the bonds that form are irrefutable.

When River Wilde, lead singer of The Wilde Ones, comes back into Dahlia’s life, the intensity that fires their relationship combined with underlying feelings that have never died lead her to believe she has met her soulmate.

Struggling with confusion as old connections fade and new ones begin, Dahlia's grief begins to lift --
but guilt remains. River wants to be the one to mend all that is torn within her.

But with a past that is never really gone, can their future survive?

I have to tell y'all that I am in the process of reading Connected right now!  I'd hoped to have it read so a review could have been posted along with the excerpt below but because of surgery and then some unplanned complications that ended up keeping me in the hospital I was unable to start until last night.  BUT I will tell y'all this.... so far, this book has got me so incredibly engrossed that when my 3 year old woke up at 10:30 last night I actually handed him the IPad and said - "Watch a movie monster, Mommy is reading this book"  I never do that and I actually feel a little guilty, well maybe I don't, but I will... once I finish Connected.  Now if only the cleaning and laundry would do itself so I could finish!  Anyway... I will be finishing Connected tonight and my review... well it will go up sometime next week (Shh... look for it on Wednesday 3/27!!)

I put my hand on his knee. I’m a little shaken by our exchange but for some reason drawn even closer to him. I don’t know if we can recover from this and honestly I’m afraid to go too much further in case we can’t. “River, let’s just end this here.”
Taking my hand from his knee he lifts it to his mouth and lightly kisses it in the same way he has done before. My goosebumps return and I have to swallow a few times to get the huge lump out of my throat. Still holding onto my fingers, our hands now resting on his leg, he lifts my chin with his other hand and rubs his thumb over my lips. “Dahlia, stay and have dinner with me? You owe me that much for standing me up that night. Then let’s see what happens.” He says this very softly, almost like a whisper as he continues to run his thumb back and forth over my bottom lip.
