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.
Mute is the first book in the Dragon Runners series and it was an okay start to a series that I may end up really enjoying. It wasn’t perfect and it also set the stage for the future books so I feel as if it fell into that first book trap.
Don’t get me wrong it was a good book, I was surprised by Mute’s character, and if you are asking yes Mute is in fact mute. I liked that added twist to his character, I have read about deaf bikers but not one that couldn’t speak. You find out why when you read the book. I liked the way that Kat could almost read his mind and knew what he was thinking. Mute could be an asshole, trust me on this but he was also so much more.
Kat just wanted to be invisible, she didn’t like drawing attention to herself and with her past I could understand why. She never had a family, or a real support system but while at times she comes across as very weak she is strong in her own way. She made Mute a better person, she heals a part of him and was the perfect balance to his roughness at times.
I am curious to see what the next book will hold, as we only scratched the surface with the characters in this series. If done right, I think fans of MC books will have a new series to read and enjoy.

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!
