Blurb: Miah’s always had something to prove—to himself, his family, and all the people who thought he’d fail. It doesn’t matter that he has to do it all alone. He won’t give up on his dream. On the cusp of a new beginning that could mean the difference between success and failure, he decides to finally enjoy a night out at a city bar with his roommate before he leaves for the bleak interior forever. He never expected to catch the eye of two unusual men there, but are they even human?
Sure, he knows aliens sought sanctuary from the Earth Unity Coalition, but he’s never met any before… that he knows of. After all, the aliens can take human form, so it’s impossible to know them on sight, but the mystery of their kind has always interested him. When they take matters into their own hands and decide to court him in their tradition, things go horribly wrong.
Now Miah’s hurt, his dream is on the verge of disappearing forever, and the life he always saw for himself is no longer an option.
They’ll have to find a way through the wrong turns and dead ends to have any hope of a new path for the three of them.

Review: This is the first book in Bonded by the Yume series.
After devastates earth humans try to survive the best they can. Miah has always had a goal in mind. He has no time for partying, relationships, or settling down. When his friend Keon mentions Natures Wrath, a dome where shifters can hunt humans, he is intrigued but doesn’t let it show. Later he finds an indent/ticket to the place and decides to go there.
I absolutely loved Moshe and Lisco, alien shifters. They were different from one another in their shifter forms, which I found refreshing as the things they shifted into are not normally written about it. But both were Yume. They are both attracted to Miah from the start and want to bond with him in their way but that goes horribly wrong. So they decide to get to know Miah in the human way.
I was fascinated by their history yet saddened by what happened to their race at the hands of another alien race. I was horrified that they were all but exterminated by these aliens all because they could change into any living thing.
It was a fascinating story with great details to add depth and understanding about the aliens. I did not want to give everything away so some things in the book are not mentioned in this review. I could not stop reading until the very last word and was held spellbound by descriptions of various events and technology used.
I am looking forward to seeing what else happens in this amazing series.
It was a great story that I highly recommend.
