Blog Tour & Giveaway: Dagger [Vegas MMA 01] by S.L Sterling!

Publication date: 27th March 2020
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 4 stars
Synopsis: Derrick

I'd been fighting all my life.

Making it my career choice seemed...logical.

Sticking to what I was good at seemed...illogical as often as I ended up in the ER.

Then my occupational hazard began to feel like more of a perk when I met, Katy. She was a night nurse at the ER I frequented. She could barely hide her contempt for me, which naturally made the curvy brunette with long wavy hair all the more irresistible.

They called him Dagger, for the looks he gave.

He knew I hated him on sight, but still, he teased me and tried to sway me.

There's no way it would work. I was on the run and still healing from a relationship with a 'roid-raging powerlifter. No way was I going to give it a go with someone trained to cause pain for a living.

Then my ex tracked me down. And suddenly, having a fighter in my corner didn't seem like such a bad idea.

I have to be honest and say that this is the first book that I’ve read from this author! I know her name and I have a book of hers on my Kindle, but the synopsis of this book sounded interesting and my kind of read, so I decided to review it for the Blog Tour! I received my ARC and can say that I read this book in one sitting! The plot developed at a nice pace and it kept me wanting to read on and find out what was going to happen next! There was some romance in the plot and I loved the way it developed and the pace it developed at! The romance allowed for a few seriously hot scenes as well, which I loved! There was a bit of suspense in the plot as well! I wish that more had been done with the suspense though because it was over quite quickly and it didn’t play as big a part of the plot as I was expecting! I enjoyed it though and it added to the plot! The characters were also amazing and made this book even better! Katy was the main female character, and I felt for her in this book because she had been through a lot and she didn’t have anyone that she could turn to! Katy came a long way in this book and she kept pushing on, even though she was scared! She also worked hard and had a very hard but rewarding job! I loved the way she was with her love interest as well and she trusted him to help her! Derrick “Dagger” was the main male character and love interest of Katy! I respected Dagger a lot in this book because he worked so hard for his dreams and he He also had a rough childhood, but he didn’t let the hold him back and he used what he had been through to want more for himself! I loved the way Dagger was with Katy as well! He was very protective of her and was there to keep her safe! It was easy to see his feelings for her develop as well! I loved that this book was written from both Katy and Dagger point of views! I was hoping that it was going to be before I started reading, but I wasn’t sure if it was going to be, even after I read the synopsis! I’m really happy that it was because it helped me connect more with Katy and Dagger more and see how they were both feeling! It allowed for a lot more things to happen in the plot as well, which helped as both characters spent time apart and they were going through their own situations! I now can’t wait to read the next book in this series! I’m not sure if it’s going to continue Katy and Dagger’s story because the ending wasn’t exactly fully resolved or if it’s going to be a complete standalone! I’m excited to find out though! I know that the next book doesn’t release until next year, so I have quite a while to wait! The cover for this book is also absolutely perfect for it! I loved it as soon as I saw it and it really suits the book! It would draw me to the book and the cover model is also the perfect Dagger! Big thank you to S.L. Sterling and Enticing Journey Book Promotions for an ARC of Dagger and for having me on the Blog Tour!
