Curvy single mom in trouble + elite alien warrior = a chance at the forever kind of love.

Three strikes and he's out.
Zoriah's rebellious teenage son is in trouble again - this time, on purpose. She'll do anything to prevent her family breaking up, even allow her children to train for the alien Yadeshi army.

Why raise your sword if you have no mate or family?
Elite alien warrior Benyon spends his time on Earth training humans in martial arts. He's come to love the three human children with warrior-spirits, and will do anything to prevent their unhappiness- even if it means going toe-to-toe with their mother - a woman who entices him with her fierce temper, lush beauty and strength of will to raise her children alone.

But she doesn't have to be alone ...
he won't allow it, not when he's made up his mind she should be his. All he has to do is convince her that alien warriors do it bigger, harder and badder. And when their family is threatened by a spurned would-be lover, Benyon seizes the opportunity to prove his worth. After all, there's more to him than just his big, blue... tattoo.

This is a steamy hot, science fiction romance for readers who love BBW and alpha male alien warriors. Perfect for your lunch break reads.


Warrior’s Bond is book one in the Yadeshi Brides series by Emma Alisyn. 

Zoriah, is a single mother of three working two jobs. 

Benyon, is a blue warrior alien on earth to train the kids that apply to the Yadeshi program. 

I felt this story was rushed and things didn’t flow well. We barely get any background on the Yadeshi and we don’t get any history on how they came to be on earth, nor do we zip off to an alien plant in this story. We also don’t get to dive into the characters. 

From what I understand about the world. Earth’s government isn’t nice and they are regulating their people, in that once you are in a class level you stay and don’t get a chance to improve your situation. They are also hiding all the benefits of joining the Yadeshi organization from it’s earth citizens. 

I found some things interesting, like the Yadeshi and their training program, but we don’t get to dive into it all, so I was disappointed on the lack of information and world building. The romance was a slow, sweet, and nice courtship. 

The major downside with this book for me besides the lack of flow, information, and world building is that we actually ended at 62%. The last 40% of this book is all advertisement for the other books in the Yadeshi Brides series. I don’t like when an author does this. It’s misleading the readers and not giving us a full story. 

Warrior’s Bond was ok, but didn’t win me over. Their was potential, but it needed more. If the blurb intrigues you, I urge you to give it a shot. Just because it did not work for me does not mean it won’t for you. 

Rated: 2.5 Stars

    • Thank’s for visiting.

  2. You are doing an awesome job of taking the freebies! They are a mixed bag. Generally, they are newer or less known authors but I have had some GREAT ones which were first books of established or now popular authors. Wonderful review! It’s difficult to write one when it doesn’t work for you.

    • I agree it’s difficult to write a review when the book doesn’t work for you. Ya, the freebies are a hit or miss and sometimes you find diamond in the ruff. I told myself this year was the year to try and work on those freebies I grabbed and so far I’m doing well. Thank’s for stopping by. Always a pleasure!
