Publisher's Summary

Hail is a Dark Kindred. Since emotions are outlawed on his home world, he is learning to feel now that he lives on the Mother Ship. Strong emotions are bad news, though - they bring out the part of his DNA that is Bolaxian Beast, a race of beings known for their fierce breeding lust.

Fantastic Read!

This is a great book! I absolutely loved this story! This book had it all (action, romance) from the very start. The narration was superb and gave that extra flair to the story. It will keep you entertained. This was my first book by this author but definitely will not be my last. I will be reading the other books in this series.

Intriguing Science Fiction Romance

This is an intriguing story that made me want to read more about the world and its history and people. I presume from cues in the story that there are or will be more stories about related characters and the races. There really wasn’t enough background here to fully understand the bigger story about the past of the people, places, planets, and the “mother ship,” but it was still an intriguing science fiction romance about a single mother, her gifted autistic son, and a “grown” (like test-tube grown) mixed race/alien man. I really liked the characters, but I wanted to know more about who they are and where they came from. I will definitely be looking for more of the “Kindred” stories. If you know more about them, you will probably understand and love this story. Even if you read this one as a stand-alone, it is still a good story, with wonderful connections, little grey men, and some really hot sex.

The narration was good, including the male, female, and “alien” voices. The delivery was clear and smooth, and really radiated the emotions of the characters.

Enjoyed!

Narrator: McKenzie Cartwright gets 5 Stars for her performance in Bonding With the Beast. One of my biggest pet peeves is how the males voice is handled by a female narrator. McKenzie did a great job. Her voice allowed me to submerge into the story and I didn't even think about it when she switched between characters.

Story: I've only ever read book one in this series but it was enough to know what to expect when listening to the audio of Bonding With the Beast. When a series has so many books, it's nice to know you don't have to follow in order and just pick what sounds good at the time.

Hail is big and scary but deep down he is just a big teddy bear. He does have Bolaxian Beast genetics in him that turns him into a beast in battle and mating. He's feared that side of himself so much that he had an emotion damper attached to him so he can control the beast. He never thought he would be able to actually have a mate one day.

Isobel is a human single mom. She filed for divorce and fled from her ex husband with her little boy. When Hail enters their life, she is too afraid to allow him in due to her mistreatment from her ex. She's surprised when her son wants Hail in their life.

I enjoyed Hail and Isobel's story. This has me wanting to get back into this series and reading the rest of them. I highly recommend getting the audiobooks. McKenzie was fantastic.

Single Mom with Autistic Son Stumbles Upon Her Protector

Hail has had only a number to identify himself until his people come in contact with earth. He is Kindred, but dark with a part beast to make him a terrifying soldier..not only in focus but in size.
Isabelle is a single mother of a special autistic son who has left an abusive husband and sought a new life. A friend has mates with a Kindred and lives on the Mother ship. Hail is sent to bring her for a visit to the ship..but all, Hail, Isabelle and her son have dreamed of each other What does this mean?
Sweetness that is unexpected...Erotic scenes, outer spence and the beginning of a new story all contained within Bonding with the Beast.
The narrator did a great job with voices and interesting secondary characters..flowing perfectly from one character to another.
Looking forward to more of this series and actually previous books, this is my first of this series.

Utterly Flawless Perfection!

Bonding with the Beast is a uniquely phenomenal experience that will blow your mind and incinerate your heart. You will be left with the smoldering ashes of your resistance sizzling all around you. There is nothing more sensual or more enticing then a story that has a man who holds his beast at bay with a tentative hold while trying to not fall for a woman who makes his heart light up and his beast howl with desperate need. Beauty and the Beast will always be my favorite fairy tale no matter how old I get. Love is never wrong or devastating when the heart is completely invested and refuses to be denied.

This story delightfully couples my love for a well-written romance with my appreciation of the wonderful world of sci fi. It is such a blissful coupling that fully engages my mind while feeding my heart in a way that will leave its indelible mark. I highly recommend this and any other book written by this fantastic author. She is one not be missed!

The characters made my heart melt in delirium and took my mind on a wonderful high. I never experienced such an intellectually challenging and deeply touching story that reached such a high caliber of satisfaction. This story and its author could easily earn every romance award ever created in my opinion. This is truly the gold standard of romance!

McKenzie Cartwight was absolute and undeniable perfection in her incredible narration of this marvelous story! Her performance was wonderfully flawless and truly inspiring. I hated for this audiobook adventure to end. It portrayed a brilliance and depth that you don’t see often enough, and the talent was through the roof! This was an overwhelming beauty that I welcomed for only a short time into my life, but its impact will be felt for a very long time to come.

Loved

I am happy I also got to listen to the audio of the book. Audio gives it a totally different feel then reading the ebook itself. The narrator did such a wonderful job.
I have read all the Kindred bride series and have a few favorites, the beast Kindred being one of them. Hail was different than the beast Kindred we know. Hail is mostly Kindred but he also has Bolaxian Berserker in him. The beast can be very dangerous.

Hail was a Dark Kindred. Though he was so hard on himself there was so much I loved about him. He truly had a good heart. When reading about him I had to wonder what it would be like to adjust the level on your emotions. I do like how he kept his emotions to a level where he had a little feeling. It had to be hard to be use to not feeling to be able to feel.

Isobel Yates past had so much pain in it. She had a young son who had Asperger’s Syndrome. I love how Isobel put her son first. She would give her life for him. She never thought she would find a man that would see how special her son truly was. I also loved the moment was read about Hail and Brandon’s interaction. So heartwarming.

I feel like I should say more about Brandon which was Isobel’s son. When reading this book, you cannot help but fall in love with this boy. You will see that he is truly special and a walking genius. I loved how he absorbed knowledge. I love how Isabel was blown away by the interaction between Hail and Brandon. Brandon never knew what it was like to have a loving father and Hail did not know what it was like to have a family. Each will find something they need a long for. I do not believe every kid could of reach or understood Hail like Brandon. Hail needed Brandon as much as Brandon needed Hail.

There is something that happens that will crush Hail’s world. He will have a hard time dealing with it and Isobel is having a hard time reaching him. I have to wonder if Hail was in love with Isobel before he ever met her. I love reading about the growing love that Isobel was starting to have for Hail.

I truly loved the fact that this was about a single mother. I would like to see more upcoming books with single mothers and would like to see some on single Kindred fathers. The story was truly special and glad I got the chance to read the book.

Loved It

McKenzie Cartwright did a fantastic job narrating the story and portraying every character. Paranormal stories are my favorite and this one did not disappoint. I also have to give kudos to the author because Hail and Isobel's story had me captivated from the very beginning until the very end and yes, it left me wanting more of this series. I definitely look forward to both reading and listening to the next book in this series. I haven't had my fill of this series yet and I doubt I would any time soon. With that being said, this story had steamy scenes, action, romance and a bit of suspense along with different paranormal creatures. I absolutely enjoy how the characters from the very first few books are also in this story. I enjoyed getting caught up with Kat, Deep, Lock and their children. This is a perfect story for all paranormal lovers and I can't wait for the next story.
