Publisher's Summary

Claire has a score to settle.

Unwilling mate to the brute who viciously conquered her city, she has fled her Alpha. Hardened by betrayal, cold as the ice outside the Dome no matter how warm her savior's embrace might be, Claire becomes the mission. The Omegas must be freed, no matter the cost.

The price on her head will not deter her; after all, she knows her life retains no value. She can't eat, she can't sleep, and she's running out of time before the inevitable end.

She'd rather die than return to her captor.

For once, Shepherd finds himself facing an adversary he cannot simply crush, and a situation far out of his depth. Desperate to draw his mate back, racked and restless, he is forced to acknowledge that his pregnant Omega is willing to sacrifice her life for her false notion of a greater good.

He holds the key to her compliance and his dying mate's survival - all he must do is give her exactly what she wants.

The Omega must be rejoined with him, because he loves her...though he knows she'll never love him back.

Born to be Broken is the second book in Addison Cain's best-selling Alpha's Claim trilogy, an unabashedly dark tale with explicit sexual themes and complete power exchange. If you enjoy gritty fiction and suspense that sticks long after you've finished listening, this series is not to be missed.

    "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!!

    Any additional comments?

    Finally a series that I have no idea what will happen next.Every time I was sure I knew what was going to happen the author took a totally different turn. I am not into dark romance but this series is a page turner and I couldn't put it down until it was finished.

    "A DARK read that shocks you & has you 1click book3"
    Any additional comments?

    After hearing him read El Diablo I learned that Marcio Catalano can growl Spanish in my ear all day and I'll love him for it - turns out, he can growl Alpha all day and I'll love it even more.<br/><br/>This book was so twisted.<br/><br/>It was fabulous.<br/><br/>This series is DARK. It's like no "shifter" book you've ever read either - because IT'S NOT ACTUALLY ABOUT SHIFTERS - technically, these are labeled "humans" but they have qualities that are definitely... let's say this is kind of sci fi, far into the future, dystopian etc etc WALK IN WITH YOUR EYES OPEN. If you're here because you like werewolves, or you like alternate universes/dystopian/sci/darkfantasy, or dark romance there are elements you'll enjoy in this one, but you should know going into it, it's not your average ANYthing, because there's NOTHING average or normal about this story.<br/><br/>Is it ROMANCE?? For Dark Romance lovers you'd probably say yes.<br/><br/>For someone who has never delved into the dark you're in for a shock.<br/><br/>Do you have triggers?<br/>This book will trigger your triggers.<br/>Do you have rules about what you WILL NOT read?<br/>This book might break them.<br/><br/>Until book 1 kind of jumped me, I wouldn't have thought this was my kind of story. I ended up devouring the series (book 3 isn't on audio yet) and was so happy to find that book 2 had been added to audible, YAY! <br/><br/>Cannot wait to see what the author does next with this universe she's built.

    Story
    "Better than the First"
    Where does Born to Be Broken rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    4 stars. Not the best but better than more than half the ones I've purchased.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Clair. Just because she's the lead.


    What does Marcio Catalano bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Better emotional range than the last guy that narrated the first gook in this series.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Despite not liking the third book to this series, this second book was- in my opinion- the best book out of the trilogy. I did like the first book but the narrator that did that kind of ruined it for me with the audile.Hope they keep this narrator for the last and final book.

    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.<br/>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!!<br/><br/>TWO THUMBS UP!

    "good adult only story"

    3 stars bcuz I prefer completed books. a series can be ok if each book is a full story on it's own. Needed more back story to understand some of the over the top animal nature that was described with explicit details. At times the story felt like watching a movie that's only shot with intense close ups.

    "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.
