Claire is desperate. Her once-thriving city lies in ruins. The strongest of the three human dynamics, Alphas, have grown feral. Common Betas circle like vultures. The lowest in the hierarchy, rare and weak, Omegas like Claire, are being destroyed. Sheltering amidst a dwindling enclave of frightened Omega women, Claire cannot provide enough to feed them all; her friends are starving.
All due to one escaped convict's violent rise to power.
Shepherd is every bit as ruthless as his reputation suggests, but Claire cannot continue watching her friends suffer. Her last recourse is to beg the most powerful Alpha in the city for aid.
Up close, the sheer size of Shepherd, the raw power of the man, terrifies her. But he may be her only hope.
Before she can render her plea, Claire's disguise and careful plans fail. Despite taking every possible precaution, she is captured. The moment the Alpha senses her, Claire's worst nightmare is realized: Shepherd, discovering a rare Omega in his midst, claims her like a prize, forcing a pair-bond that ties her to him forever.
Claire becomes his.
Shepherd keeps his wayward mate locked away where only he might enjoy her, and refuses to help her fellow Omegas unless they, too, are irrevocably bound to favored soldiers of his choosing. Claire cannot allow such a thing. She fights her instincts and his will, because no matter how many times he's knotted her, how manipulative the bond might be, she despises what he's done.
And Shepherd vows he will hunt her down - ready to burn the city to ash if he has to. Because Claire is his. His mate.
The first book in Addison Cain's exciting, raw, and suspense-filled Omegaverse trilogy is a dark tale with explicit sexual themes and complete power exchange.

Too Dark for Me!
I didn't realize this was a series and this book ended in a cliffhanger. I really don't like cliffhangers.
Though the book is very well written, it is just too dark a story for me. The "hero" , Shepherd, captures and basically I'm prisons the "heroine", Claire. He forces himself on her, manipulates her, uses her, scars her body, and does this all without any emotional feelings in evidence.
Claire is abused to the point that she literally feels like she has no reason to live. Then the book ends.
Ugh!! I give the author credit for making Claire's situation so emotionally wrenching and heartbreaking. I cried for her despair. The world building was interesting, but bleak. That pretty much describes how I felt as the book ended:.... bleak.
Not my idea of a good read, although I can see how others could enjoy the book for the realism of the emotions it provokes. It's just not my cup of tea.
I thought the narrator was quite good.
I was provided with a complimentary copy by the author/publisher in exchange for an unbiased review through Audiobook Boom.

This book was to dark for me. I am used to the H and H having some chemistry even though they may go through bad times before they get to the good. The narration was good but again i do not like books where the Hero cheats on the Heroine when they are in the next room. I am not putting the writing down because i think it is bad. The story just was not for me. I received this audio book free for an honest opinion.

.A Panty Dropping Dark Romance
Born to be Bound is a breathtaking book to my add to my favorites -- a truly wild rollercoaster, brilliantly woven with plot twists and thrilling from beginning till end, and also an absolutely beautiful journey sprinkled with countless gut-wrenching moments. Enthralling, action-packed and heartwarming (yes, you read that right), this book deserves every praise known to humankind and I bow down to the queens in eternal awe -- Addison and Logan, did a spectacular job . Cannot wait to see what you have in store for us next.
This is the 5th book narrated by Logan McAllister that I've read in as many days and he has a voice that will leave you in a puddle on the floor .A panty dropping Dark Romance.There is a cliffhanger so you may literally be begging for more ;) . I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.As always this is my honest opinion .
