Publisher's 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!

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!!

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.

A MUST

This is a very dark book and yet so very very good. I could not stop listening. The story is well written and you become invested in the characters. I can not wait for the next book and glade to know I will not have to wait long.

I can't get this book out of my head.

I can't get this book out of my head. The characters are complex and flawed and idealistic. The world they inhabit is unique and surprising. I keep coming back to these books for another listen. Oh, and they have awesome sex.

Fantastic 10 star series!

Like nothing I've ever read before! The main characters couldn't be more opposite as Claire fights to bring good into a world that's bad beyond redemption. The passionate response of Shepherd's overbearing passion for Claire is breathtaking and merciless. This book series is HOT HOT HOT!!
