Torn (Connections #2) by Kim Karr

Rock star River Wilde brought Dahlia London back from the brink of hopelessness with his unwavering love and devotion. But their entangled history is about to test the strength of their relationship…

Dahlia was certain she had found true love and met her "Once in a Lifetime’ when she reconnected with River. But Dahlia’s world comes crashing down when someone from her past resurfaces, and all of River’s carefully hidden secrets are exposed.                                                               
River wants to show Dahlia that life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass—it’s about dancing in the rain. But how many times can one broken heart be mended?  Will River and Dahlia be able to stay together or will they be torn apart?

Given the end of Connected(book 1) I knew that this book was going to be angsty to put it mildly!! 

Possible Spoilers Ahead!!

The love between River and Dahlia has always been a 'love at first sight' amazing thing! With everything that they went through to get where they are, about to head off to Vegas to get married, you would think their HEA would be inevitable, but hang on....Ben is back!! 

Seriously, when I read that at the end of Connected, that Ben was not really dead I'm pretty sure I said out load 'Are you fucking kidding me?' What a fucking crazy cliffhanger. So you can see why I was so excited to read this conclusion. 

Now, I knew there was shit that River wasn't telling Dahlia, things he knew that he believed she was better off not knowing. We all know, being the awesome guy that he is that he was protecting her, but as always that comes back to bite him in the ass!! When they learn that Ben is alive, and Ben is one delusional fucker to think that he and Dahlia are just going to pick up where they left off years before when he faked his death! See, crazy fucker, huh?? Especially when she learns that Ben really did cheat on her, not just came close like he assured her when they were in college, and with River's sister no less!! I know, right?! Holy Shit!

We all know that Dahlia is so freakin' head over heels in love with River that there is no way that she is going back to Ben, but River has to have his moments of insecurity to add to the angst of the story of course. Everyone's secrets come out in the end and it's rough going for a little while but I assure you there is a HEA!! I mean really how can you stay upset with each other when one of you is a delicious rock star who can write you a song to assure you that your relationship is not and never will be 'In Pieces' (this is one of my favorite parts)

There are no pieces, I promise you
Glass can shatter and bones may break
But I will always call, I will always find you
Our love is strong
Let me ease your mind, let me in, I will always love you
I will always love you
We'll never be in pieces 

Can you imagine your man writing and singing that song to you... I know right, instant panty drop!! :)
