My Review

Hook (Las Vegas #1)

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Mila has been doing everything she can to provide for herself and her younger sister since their parents passed away. She strips because so far, that is the job that comes closest to paying their rent and bills. Her sister is 16 and her behavior makes life even harder for Mila. Knox is a professional MMA fighter, with a difficult past of his own. He is an extremely successful fighter, but he hasn't been interested in any relationship. When Mila and Knox first meet, they are very attracted to one another, but Mila doesn't have time for a relationship, and isn't about to date a client. Knox is confused because he feels a desire for Mila that he doesn't feel for other women.

This is a quick read and ends on a pretty dramatic note. Mila is a character who is easy to sympathize with. She doesn't have the luxury of putting her own needs first, and she's been struggling for a long time. It was nice to see her getting some of the help she really needs and deserves. Knox is also pretty easy to like because while he is an arrogant celebrity fighter, he is nothing but helpful and kind to Mila. Their chemistry is strong and I'm hoping they will be able to figure out how to be together. There is a lot of insta-everything here, so if that isn't something you can buy into, this will be tough. Knox is pretty invested in Mila pretty quickly, and while Mila is attracted to Knox, she is always aware of her own responsibilities. I am interested to see where this story goes, and what happens next.
