Paige’s Warriors is book two in the Bondmates series by Ann Mayburn. Even though it says book three it is actually the second full length novel in the series. It’s an erotica romance set in an alternate world with seductive alien men and multiple partners. It’s a steamy romance and can be read as a stand-a-lone, but for the best enjoyment I recommend reading in order.
We meet Paige in Casey’s Warriors. I have to say I’ve been wanting to read about Page since the moment she popped up. Her past was brutal. Abused and miss treated by her father, someone who is supposed to protect and love her, so to say she is a little damaged and affected by this doesn’t even begging to describe her issues. Tren was also brutally damaged, but by war and the long years of not finding his bondmate.
The story-line is exciting, explicit, and sultry. We get danger on many fronts that our characters must navigate along with a special treat in seeing what Paige’s special ability will be after her bonding. It was phenomenal watching both Tren and Paige, develop, grow, and change. You can feel them both healing and find themselves along with Rell, Tren’s bloodbrother. The sex is of the charts hot and sizzling. The author did an exceptional job writing the sensual moments; which range from M/F, M/M/M/M/F, and more.
Their was one thing that gave me pause. It was when Tren talks about the growth regiment for human women who are bonding with their Kadothian men. It’s explained well and ya, the Kadothian’s are big in more way’s then one, but I don’t think someone should change for another even their soul mates. This one thing didn’t deter me from enjoying the story.
Last, the set up for the third book was very well done, actually it’s a cliffhanger, so be warned.
Paige’s Warriors captured me from the first to the last page. I couldn’t put the book down and I’m really enjoying the world and erotic sci-fi romance that the author has created. I’m looking forward to continue the Bondmates series; especially after the ending in this novel.
