I’ve never read anything by Serena Kearney before so I wasn’t sure what to expect from Dazed Bullet. From the blurb, I was hoping for a strong AF female lead and a BA guy who matches her step for step. I sort of got that…
This started off with a bang, then slowed to a crawl, then sped back up again. Once you get past the quarter mark though, you’d better strap in for the rest of the book. Bad guys are coming out of the woodwork, secrets from Bullet’s past are coming back to bite them, and the end will leave you begging for book two.
At times, the writing could be a bit amateurish and Daze and Bullet’s anger (and subsequent actions) childish. Things smoothed out as the book went on though.
The real star in this book, however, was the relationship between Daze and her brother, Dem. There was true love and devotion between them. They are the only family they have left that matters and they stick by each other through all the good and the bad.
There’s quite the set up for the next book in the series in the epilogue, but not a cliffhanger for this book. The main storyline is resolved.
There is some violence in this book so be aware of that. Plus, the opening scene portrays child abuse.
The first in Serena Kearney’s Scarred Bullet series, Dazed Bullet is suspenseful and emotional. Daze and Bullet are uniquely suited for each other, so watching them overcome the obstacles in their way was quite satisfying.
Copy provided in exchange for a fair and honest review.
I have a temper. I’m angry. That’s a given.
How I take it out? At my job in the boxing room of our gym.
I’ve spent over a year trying to harness it, but I wasn’t by myself.
Almost every night, like clockwork, he’s there on one side and I’m at the other.
He is big, rugged, but handsome.
He’s also scary. Silent. Deadly.
When I hear the name Bullet, you would think I would have gone running in the other direction.
I didn’t. I should.
He has a past.
He has secrets. Danger. Pain. Sorrow.
Little did I know that it would just bring us closer together.
