Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Give Me Books Promotions and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".



Katrina Vega is set on one thing: finishing college. She’s determined not to let anything or anyone distract her, especially not hot brooding bikers. On her mission to stay focused, she doesn’t expect to be pulled into the fold of a motorcycle club, let alone into the arms of Alec "Mute" Stillwater.

Unable to keep her guard up, Katrina soon discovers that beneath the hard and rough exterior of a family she’s grown to care for, there’s also loyalty and passion she’s envious of. But falling for the club’s enforcer will not only threaten her plans but quite possibly her life.

My Thoughts:

Katrina Vega is trying to juggle a lot of things.  Betsey is a character that piqued my interest in what this MC is all about.  I think I just found a new one to follow.  Someone else that intrigued me was Stud.  I can’t say that he or Betsey could be considered secondary characters because they seemed so much a part of what was going on.

One thing I liked about this story was that the author chose to write this story in the first person.  We get more of a personal perspective about the other characters.  I was intrigued with how the author portrayed Mute.  Certainly not what I expected but it became a very pleasant surprise.  It was a great way to get me hooked.  Once I started, it was very difficult to walk away.

This may seem a bit one sided since Katrina seems to be doing all the talking.  But Mute has a way of making himself heard.  Another thing that I liked was that we don’t have a hookup right away.  This author knows how to build her story first and then everything that comes later is just a yummy topping on a really good cake – or a pint of your favorite ice cream.

There is an ending to this story but I didn’t get the impression that it was one that said “The End”.  And that made me happy since I’m not done with this series yet.  In the Acknowledgements the author thanks some people.  And if you enjoyed this book as much as I did then you might want to send up thanks as well.

Author Bio:

ML Nystrom had stories in her head since she was a child. All sorts of stories of fantasy, romance, mystery and anything else that captured her interest.  A voracious reader, she’s spent many hours devouring books; therefore, she found it only fitting she should write a few herself!  

ML has spent most of my life as a performing musician and band instrument repair technician, but that doesn’t mean she’s pigeon-holed into one mold.  She’s been a university professor, belly dancer, craftsperson, soap maker, singer, rock band artist, jewelry maker, lifeguard, swim coach, and
whatever else she felt like exploring.  As one of her students said to her once, "Life’s too short to ignore the opportunities."  She has no intention of ever stopping... so welcome to her story world. She hopes you enjoy it!
