Summary

“Beautiful and devastating, sensual yet poetic, Addison Cain’s Born to be Bound is the perfect example of why she’s a master at the genre.” (USA Today best-selling Author Jane Henry)

Desperately in love....

Shepherd took Claire against her will. Pair-bonded the Omega despite her reluctance, tying their souls together for life. Conquered her city and brought her people to heel. 

Yet never anticipated he’d fall in love. 

Or imagine his wonderful mate would grow to despise him to the point she’d risk her life to escape.

That cannot stand. He will find his missing mate, he will drag her home, and he will make her adore him. After all, he holds the key to his resistant mate's compliance - the lives of her friends.

One of my favorite books meets an AMAZING narrator

Addison Cain's Alpha's Claim Series is one of my all time favorite series. Just when I thought the series couldn't get any better, it gets narrated by Marcio Catalano. Oh lordy... I can't tell you the number of times that I've listened to this book, not only because I love it, but because of the amazing narration. Marcio is definitely one of the most talented narrators I've had the pleasure of listening to. He has a magical way of bringing the story to life.... and in this case, in a very ... yummy way!

PLEASE... BOOK THREE NEEDS AUDIO!

Any additional comments?

Not sure why this story just hits me. In book two we get to learn a bit more about Shepherd and the world he's in and trying to build. Claire despairs... everything. Just shuts down inside. In doing so, she gives everything and expects death.
The story is so deep that I'm not going to summarize it here. Just praise it and pray for book three to be narrated and released before I have to re-listen to books one and two!!

TWO THUMBS UP!

Story was ok

I story was ok but I didn't like it as much as the first book in the series.

This was a poorly produced audiobook. I had a horrible time listening to it. There was no transition from one scene to the next. I don't know if was because of how the book was written or just how they chose to perform the audio of the book. There was no indication when a new chapter or scene started. The story was very choppy. I would be listening to a scene between two characters and then all of a sudden new names would be used. I eventually realized this was a totally different scene with different characters interacting. There was no indication of a change. I would rewind the audio to see if I could pick up where the scene changed. This happened constantly throughout the book. It was extremely frustrating and annoying. One moment you would have a dialogue between two characters and the next you'd be listening to dialogue between completely different characters with no transition. It was very confusing. I could not recommended this audiobook to anyone. It's a lesson in frustration and confusion.

GREAT NARRATION. ENJOYED THIS ONE

Shepard is something else! Whew! An alpha who takes what he wants. Just how I like it! Claire is an omega who he claims upon first meeting. From there, Its a whole ride and I was here for it! I won't spoil it like the others! but I'd say give it a read, if you don't mind cliffhangers. Definitely one of my fav "omegaverse" stories!

So good!!!

Addison Cain has made me a fan!!’ Book 2 is as good as Book 1! Shepherd is the Alpha and Claire is his mate. She is missing because she ran from him... again... he wants her found!

She is ready to die. Ready to take her own life because the mate bond that was forced on her has been severed because Shepherds “beloved” needed to prove a point. She is pregnant with his child.. also forced. He stops her... he loves her but is not good at being a gentle mate. She batters for the lives of people she cares about.

There are lots of things happening here!!! I’m gonna have to actually read book 3!!!

I was a little put off by the change in narrators at first because pronunciations at different. Now I don’t know what the true name of the city they are in really is! Marcia Catalano voice is smooth and easy to listen to. He voiced the characters well. And once I got over the difference in voices (I went right from one book to the next), I enjoyed his voice very much!!

SMH! This booked pissed me off!

Claire is straight up naive and stupid to me. I lost patience with this book. I'm sad to say I continued to read because I expected a different outcome from her. Shepard is completely delusional and nuts! I just can't with this series. This is the most unnerving book series I have ever read. It teeters on the line between love and hate. Read at your own risk.

She is a very good writer can’t wait till stolen part 2 to come out. So if ur in a rut in trying to find new book and author try this one you will NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

This series is so good and dark

So dark but so good. A world unlike no other and a romance that will be tested. Love Sheperd and Claire so hard!

ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK AND SERIES

TO SAY THAT I LITERALLY DIDN'T PUT THIS BOOK DOWN UNTIL I WAS FINISHED IT WOULD BE AN UNDERSTATEMENT. AS THE 2ND INSTALLMENT OF THIS SERIES I THINK I FINISHED THIS IN UNDER 24 HOURS. THE NARRATOR WAS SUPERB AND ADDISON CAIN DANCES THAT FINE LINE OF INTRIGUE AND DARK DESIRES. IT'S SO EASY TO GET WRAPPED UP IN THE DYSTONIA WORLD THAT EVERYTHING ELSE SEEMS SMALL IN COMPARISON.
