MUSIC HAS THE POWER TO HEAL ALL…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 Wilde Ones’ 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 pop 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 at reclaiming the powerful love they thought they had lost forever....
Mended is a heart-warming story of love and second chances, making it a phenomenal addition to the Connections series!
Xander Wilde craves control in his life and as manager of the Wilde Ones rock band, there is no question that he has it. But when he crosses paths with singer Ivy Taylor, that control shatters, just like his heart did twelve years ago when he let her go. When catastrophe threatens the future of the Wilde Ones though, they're thrown together and there is no denying that the attraction they shared as teenagers is still potent. There's one problem though. Ivy is already engaged to Damon Wolf, which is the name and the last two words that his father spoke before taking his own life. And Damon is not letting Ivy go without a fight. Can these two find a way to forgive and forget the past for a second chance at love? Or will Damon Wolf destroy that chance before they can even mend the rift between them?
This story was a joy to read; full of love, angst, intrigue, drama, and of course vast amounts of passion. In Mended, answers about Xander's hard attitude that some readers may have had from the previous books in the series are revealed and justified. Sacrificing your first and only love so that they can go on and be the person you know that they have the potential to be might do that to a person.
If you love something, Set it free... If it comes back, it's yours, If it doesn't, it never was yours....
Xander is such a wonderful character and so easy to fall in love with. His dedication to his family, especially when it comes to River and Dahlia, was endearing. But his dedication to Ivy once they reconnected was awe-inspiring. As we delve deeper into Xander, River and Bell's family we find a few twists and one shocking secret that I never expected. The series arc of the Wilde Ones has really grown and expanded, but no more so then the occurrences in this book. My feelings for Ivy ran hot and cold, sometimes I loved her, sometimes...not so much. I just didn't feel that some of the decisions she made were justified. But there was no denying the sizzling chemistry that sparked through the air whenever Xander and Ivy were in the same vicinity!
