Release Blitz & Review: Stud

Title: Stud

Series: Dragon Runners #2
Author: ML Nystrom
Publisher: Hot Tree Publishing

Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: June 23, 2018

Bold and brash, Eva MacAteer has spent her life working in her blue-collar family’s construction business. In doing so, she’s had to fight for her own place away from her overbearing father, as well as for her own identity as a woman. Struggling between her loyalty to her brothers and her desire to strike out to be her own person, Eva knows one thing for certain: getting with a womanizer, no matter how hot he may be, is not the path for her. 

Stud is not one to be tied down to any woman. Fiercely loyal to the club and his single ways, the last thing he expects is to become fascinated by the fiery Eva. He sees his own life reflected in hers and is not quite sure how to handle the connection.

Can two mismatched people find enough common ground to overcome their fears and allow love to grow?

This is the second book in the series but can easily be read as a stand alone.  While the first book set the stage for the series, this one took off with a cast of interesting characters and just kept on rolling through the whole story.  This is Stud's book, obviously.  What you thought you knew about him is only the tip of the iceberg. 

Eva and her hot blooded Irish family are re-building the club bar.  She is a fighter and takes no crap from anyone, least of all her family.  She is the youngest and the only girls.  Her tough exterior hides a girly girl who just wants to be loved for who she is, not how much work she can do.  

Stud is also hiding a tortured past and protecting his heart in the process.  I loved the slow burn, friends to lovers route of the story.  The timing was perfect for this couple since trust building was the crux of previous relationship issues.  

We get some nice humor, some Irish banter, a bit of the MC but most of the action is outside of the work of the club. A bit of adventure and of course, eventually, some very steamy lovin between Stud and Eva. 

Looking forward to reading more about this club.  Unique setting and interesting characters.

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!
