The Connection series continues with River's brother Xander's story.
Xander Wilde is the manager of the Wilde Ones. He has always been a little too serious and rarely smiles. In this book, we learn about his heartache.
Xander has only loved one woman and her name is Ivy Taylor. Ivy and Xander were an item, they loved each other and were looking forward to a life together.
Life sometimes doesn't happen the way we want and due to a misunderstanding and a horrible situation in Xander's life, they break up. Years later when they meet again, they can't fool their heart for too long.
“Do you think relationships can work that way?”
“What way is that?”
“That something once broken, irreparably, like us, can be so easily mended?”
“I think all relationships are different and each one has its own dynamics. There are no rules to follow. So, yes, I think if we both want this bad enough there’s no reason we can’t have it.”
I love the Wilde Ones. Kim Karr can get me inside their heads and fall in love with them. I should include Jagger in this group. Kim made me like Xander even more and root for him unconditionally.
Ivy was a good heroine. She didn't deny her attraction to Xander and when there was a time for her to do some self-sacrifice she didn't hesitate.
I hated Damon Wolf. No questions about it.
I can't wait for Bell's story.
“Roses are so cliché.”
“I prefer Ivy.”
