About the Book
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.
Derrick is back in the hospital again after his MMA fight to get his wounds fixed. This trip was not like every other thanks to the new night nurse, Katy. Derrick was determined to show Katy that he is not just some dumb fighter. She tried to ignore Derrick when he came in on her shift at the ER since she thought he was no different than her ex-boyfriend who she was running from. Her ex-boyfriend tracks her down and suddenly having Derrick around is a great thing.
Dagger is the first novel in the new Vegas MMA series by S.L. Sterling which is told in the dual first-person point of view. This was my first novel by S.L. Sterling and I enjoyed the way she was able to create the suspenseful feeling while reading the book. I could actually sense the fear in Katy she was experiencing while being on the run thinking her ex had found her. Once the trust was gained between Dagger and Katy your heartstrings are tugged at hard.
