Binding Krista (Fallon Mates, #1) By Jory Strong

Review by Tempest.


For Adan d'Amato and Lyan d'Vesti, only a shared bond-mate will ensure the continuance of their race. The Council scientists have found a match in Krista Thomas—a genetically compatible human. By Council rules Krista must be willing and the binding must be done immediately before she is brought back to their world, because once she accepts the bond, she will know that Adan and Lyan are not natives of Earth. For the warriors, it's a simple quest—go to Earth, bind their mate to them, then return home.

There's only one catch—Krista is on the run and she's afraid to involve anyone else in her life.

There was a decent plot in this story, revolving around a human woman, Krista, and two aliens, Adan and Lyan. While I would have liked to learn more about their species, and why the split in the past, it was a good enough story that I don't feel like I was cheated out of too much information. Also, because this is a series, I assume that we'll be getting more explanations in later books. Each of the characters had their own personality, which was nice. They weren't all the same, and Krista wasn't a pathetic, naive, weakling like some female lead characters in books like this. Her past was a twisted mess, and I kept wanting to read on to find out more about it and how she'd gotten herself in trouble in the first place. Of course, this being an erotica, there were loads of sex scenes, and each one was written well. I'm not overly found of ubber Alpha males who talk down to women and think they can control every little thing they do, so I was pleased to find that while alphas, neither Adan nor Lyan were jerks or over the top controlling. The story as a whole was wrapped up nicely, and I'm interested in seeing where the rest of this series is taken. I'd recommend this to anyone who wants a steamy read that also includes plot.
