ARC Review of CASEY’S WARRIORS by Ann Mayburn

10353125_640865855982071_4446141583030481646_n

CASEY'S WARRIORS

Author: Ann Mayburn

Series: Bondmates Book 1

Genre: Sci-Fi, FantasyMenage

Heat Level: 5 Flames

Coming June 24th!

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 was not my first Ann Mayburn book, nor will it be my last. I had the great pleasure of getting to read an ARC of CASEY’S WARRIORS and I was not disappointed. I don’t read much science fiction romance, but I’m letting you know …you won’t care one smidgen that the heroes are aliens from another galaxy, so don't shy away from it because of that. You will be too caught up in the fabulous characterization, the vivid storytelling, and the smoking HOT romance between Casey and Lorn, Casey and Nast, Casey and Lorn and Nast, Lorn and Nast, and a few others get a taste in as well. Let's just say orgasms were plentiful and I wished to be in Casey's place on more than a few occasions 🙂

I don’t write reviews that tell the plot. So if you were looking for extra hints about what happens in the book…nope, not gonna happen. I can tell you that I considered the book excellently written and very erotic. I couldn't wait to turn each page and I did read the book in one sitting, staying up until the wee hours of the morning because I just couldn't put it down. I will warn you, if you blush easily, prepare to burn from head to toe.

Solid 5 Stars Ms. Mayburn! I can’t wait for the next Bondmates book!
