Casey’s Warriors (Bondmates #1) by Ann Mayburn

Lorn Adar has searched more than a lifetime to find his bondmate—the one woman he was born to love and the only woman who can save him from the approaching madness that threatens all unbonded males of his race. When a wormhole opens from his galaxy to Earth and the women who could hold their future, Lorn will do all in his power to not only find his mate, but show her a Universe she never knew existed.

Casey Westfall’s normal life changed forever when she finds the sexy leather clad man on her doorstep. One innocent kiss leads to an adventure that will span worlds and Casey will have to choose between the man who is the other half of her soul and never seeing her family or her world again. To complicate matters Kadothians live in polyamerous family units and Lorn will have to convince his Earth bride to accept not only his love, but the love of his best friend and brothers in arms or risk the chance of losing them to either the madness or the Hive—the race of sociopathic women bent on destroying and enslaving everything in their path, but Casey can’t see loving more than one man as being anything other than a sin. Lorn will have to teach his bride that she was created for both of them just as they were created only for her.

In a Universe where all is possible, the battle to protect not only his people, but his heart rests on the soul of a human woman who must face the unknown and take a leap of faith that could save or destroy them all.

This book was definitely something new for me. I don’t think I have ever read a book like it. It was interesting and even though at times I wanted to just give up on this book I couldn’t because I wanted to see what happened and how this author would resolve everything.



I liked Micah and Chris but that’s just it. I wasn’t in love with these characters like I usually am when I read and I’m not quite sure what was missing. At some parts in this book I was really confused with what was happening. The transitions for the scenes where they would just be sitting down casually and then something out of nowhere happens were a bit choppy. I would have to reread the scene a couple times to realize “Okay wait something major just happened, what the heck is going on”. 

Another problem I had with the book was that the end seemed to kind of drag on. Once everything seemed to be resolved and everything was good, the book just kept going. Usually with couples I love that wouldn’t be a problem because I would love to just soak up the remaining time I have with the couple and the story but for this one it was just like “Come on already!” (Also a minor problem I had was that Chris was apparently this beautiful man yet whenever they described him…..well it was just interesting to say the least. It’s like when they were describing him they forgot to remember that he was suppose to be this beautiful man.)

The storyline however, was really good! The plot and everything that happened and the little twists and turns at the end were good. You know when you read a book and you just feel like you’re in that world living through everything they are? I love those books! But this book I just felt like a bystander. I couldn’t fully connect with this book and with some people that’s not a problem but for me I really like to feel a connection with the book and the characters. 

For me this book fell a little bit short, but hopefully if any one of you decide to read this book you love it! Maybe I’ll read more from this author and see what else they can come up with.

Silver & Black by Tyler May


Does love have a cost? 

Brian Silver is CEO of the world’s largest coffee house chain in the world, Silver Coffee. Growing up in a wealthy family, Silver had it all: money, fame, and any man he wanted, but that was never enough. Silver wants more. After a tragic health event that leaves him vulnerable in life, he realizes that business will not bring him the happiness he needs, and he’ll do anything to find that happiness.

Greyson Black is a coffee house barista in one of the Silver Coffee chains in downtown Manhattan. Greyson is finishing school and determined to find the best path for his life. When Brian Silver makes a “surprise” stop at the franchise, he’s more than intrigued by the young, gorgeous Greyson. Silver knows there’s only one thing that he must have now, and he will do whatever it takes to get him.

When Silver and Greyson get together, sparks fly. Silver is perfect in Greyson’s eyes, but is love blind? A mysterious stranger is out for Greyson, and the mind games have just begun. Greyson starts to question everything, including Silver’s advances. When Danger is lurking around every corner, no one is safe. Greyson will have to determine if love is worth the danger and excitement.

Can attraction be fatal, or will attraction be the saving grace Greyson needs? Will Silver’s secrets ruin them or will someone else have the first shot?

Love is blinding, but suspicion is the real killer.



I have such a headache from reading this book!! But it’s not from what you’re probably thinking. I refused to put this book down! I was starring at my iPhone (because I was reading the book off of iBooks) for so long I got a headache! But that did NOT stop me! I continued reading because I loved this couple so much. 

When I first started reading this book, I have to say I was so confused. At first they called each other Mr. Silver and Mr. Black but then they would address Mr. Black as Grey and I was just sitting there so confused! I never read the summary of books I kind of just grab them and let them surprise me so I had no idea what their first names were but I was sitting there and said to myself “Grey Black? No I must’ve read something wrong” But no his name is really Grey Black. It’s really Greyson Black (which sounds way better) but I just thought that either the author didn’t think that one through all the way or they just really like their colors. 

Other than that confusing moment I loved everyone, even the secondary characters. Due to the fact that I had no clue what this book was about at all everything was such a surprise and the author did it so beautifully! I couldn’t put the book down I just had to find out what was going to happen next! I’m telling you guys this book was so intriguing and such a page turner.

Overall, I loved this book! Silver and Grey were so cute and charming you couldn’t help but fall in love with the two. This book had it’s twists and turns and at some points you didn’t know who to trust which made the book even better because it was so suspenseful and gave this book something more than just an ordinary love story.

“How do you have such self-control?” I grin sitting next to him on the couch. He utters words that make my heart melt. “Because you’re worth the wait.” 

*Swooooooon!*

KAGE Trilogy by Maris Black


My name is Jamie Atwood, and I’m an addict. I never thought I’d say such a thing. Never had a problem being overly-attached to anything in my life. I came from a perfectly middle-class family, made good grades, and had a hot cheerleader girlfriend… but the truth is, nothing ever really moved me. So how did a guy like me become an addict? 

I met Michael Kage. 

Kage is an MMA fighter. A famous one. I like to think I helped him get that way. 

He’s charming as hell, with looks to rival any movie star and talent to back it up. So why did he need to hire me as an intern Publicist? Simple. He has a darkness in him– like a black hole so deep it could swallow him, and me, and everyone we know– and that’s not good for business. 

The first time I met him, I felt the pull. I think the addiction began at that very moment. And even if I’d known then what I know now, I would have fallen for him. How could I not? 

For me, Kage is everything.



Okay I’m officially in love! I couldn’t write my thoughts down until I finished all three books. Literally once I finished one book I immediately picked up the next one and finished all three books in 2 days. These books are page turners and I couldn’t put them down until I finished all three books! Thank god all three were already published because I don’t know what I would’ve done if one wasn’t published yet. 

I loved the two main characters. Both were amazing and I couldn’t help but fall in love with the two of them. Their love story was so cute! There were a few bumps in this story but nothing major where I was like “Oh shoot how is this going to work out in the end”. During the time I was reading the book that didn’t bother me but now looking back I wish there were a lot more “OMG!” moments but I don’t mind since it wasn’t a main worry when I was actually reading the stories. 

Also, I loved how there was an actual story here. It wasn’t all about sex, yes there’s sex in it, but it didn’t revolve around sex. I feel like whenever I read a MM fiction novel it’s like 90% sex and there’s not much to the actual love story. However, this one was different! I think that’s why I was so in love with this because the author gave me characters and a story to love. 

I really hope there’s more from this author that I can dive into because this was such a great read and I get obsessed with books that I can’t put down. I feel like that’s when you know you’re reading something good if it can capture your attention that much.
