The struggle is real.  Beverly spends so much of her time juggling her four kids, a dead-beat ex, and two jobs that she never has time for herself or another man in her life.

Then Connor moves in next door.

Connor is healing from a hard break from his family and is working to find his own identity.  He has no interest in joining another one.

Then he meets his neighbor.

Two people building new lives. Two people with no time or energy for love. Bev and Connor are determined to stick to their plans, but life has other ideas—now they just have to run with it.

The man turned and looked at the wide front porch where my kids were holding the welcome wagon. Just my luck to have them squabbling loudly when our new neighbor was moving in.
As we moved to the driveway, I noticed he was a large man, broad and solid. I wore mom jeans with elastic at the waist, sneakers, and an oversized hoodie with a picture of our school mascot peeling from age. My hair was scraped back in its usual ponytail, and any scrap of makeup I had on from earlier today had worn off hours ago.
Please don’t be handsome too. Please don’t be handsome too, I prayed. It would be more of my luck to have a real hottie move in when I looked every bit of my age.
“I blocked you in, didn’t I?” His voice was deep and slightly accented with something European. Irish maybe? Ya ain’t from around here, are ya? floated through my mind in a deep Southern twang.
“Um… yeah. We were just leaving for the football game, and you’re makin’ us late,” Mattie told him. Not a shy bone in that kid’s body.
“Mattie, don’t be rude.”
The man didn’t seem to mind my son’s bold statement. “Sorry about that, lad. I didn’t realize you were leaving. Get on in your car there, and I’ll move my truck for you, yeah?”
As I got closer, his dark hair came into view. The lower half of his face sported a short beard of the same color. He wasn’t classically handsome, but he certainly wasn’t bad to look at either. His bright green eyes had small lines that radiated from them, making him around my age. He was definitely rugged, and his tanned skin made me think he worked outdoors a lot.
“Oy! Owen! Back out! These people have somewhere to be!” The man’s powerful yell made me jump.
The moving van jerked once as it reversed and backed into the street.
The man turned back to us. “I’ll park my truck on the street tonight, and we’ll figure out how to make it work later. Fair?”
“That’s very fair, Mister…?” I hedged.
“MacAteer. The name’s Connor MacAteer.” He held out a giant paw. Lord, the man was a bear!



I’ve had stories in my head since I was a child.  All sorts of stories of fantasy, romance, mystery and anything else that captured my interest.  I’m a voracious reader, and have spent many hours in my life devouring books, therefore it’s only fitting I should write a few myself!  

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

Run With It by ML Nystrom – Book Review

Run With It by ML Nystrom is the first book of A McAteer Brothers book series. I’ve read every single book of Dragon Runner MC Series by this author, from Mute to Brick and I must say, she is one of my favorite authors. I totally enjoyed every single book.

Now, after reading Run With It, I cant wait to read the next books in the series. Ms Mystrom has a way of gripping the reader from the first page till the last. This book is particularly close to my heart where she tells the story of a single mother Beverly Archer who is struggling to make the ends meet and be there for her kids all by herself. Connor McAteer is the neighbor who is always there for Beverly and her four children in every way. 

It takes really long time for the both of them to look past their friendship and realize their love for each other, but, in the end, they have their happily ever after. The female leads are strong and independent in Nystrom’s novels and the male leads definitely hold a special place in my heart. The way they treat their women brings tears to my eyes. They never leave the hand of their love and family, no matter what. 

Being a single mother myself, I know what it is like to raise a child all by yourselves, meeting the financial needs and emotional needs of the kids. I loved the dedication in the beginning from the author and I fell in love with her all over again. Its a beautiful book.
