Born to be Bound (Alpha's Claim, #1) by Addison Cain – Beckie Bookworm

Release Date-April 8th 2016 Genre-Dark Erotic Romance

Kindle Edition-242 pages

Surrender is not survival.

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. Despite taking every possible precaution, Claire is captured and her worst nightmare realized. Shepherd, discovering a rare Omega in his midst, claims her like a prize, forcing a pair-bond that ties her to him forever.

She fights her instincts and his will because no matter how manipulative the bond might be, she despises what he’s done to her people. If she cannot find a way to help her friends, if she cannot escape, everyone she loves will die.

Publisher’s Note: The first book in Addison Cain’s exciting, raw, and suspense-filled Omegaverse series is a dark tale with explicit sexual themes and complete power exchange. Though situations may be interpreted as romantic, this is a story about the effect of extreme circumstances on the human psyche and the consequences of obsession—not a standard romance. If such material offends you, please do not purchase.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wasn’t sure what I was going to think when I started to read this book but boy in a word AMAZING!!!!. I love the whole idea of omega’s, beta’s and Alpha’s the whole concept of Heat cycle’s nesting and pair mates was so very unique. A very quick explanation of Born to be Bound is Claire an omega goes to try and secure help for her fellow omega’s from Shepherd The Head alpha in charge after the undercroft the prison system for the domed city has overtaken and toppled the city’s government.The omegas are starving and being hunted. Instead, shepherd takes Claire hostage killing ten men in the process and forcing a pair bond, when Claire goes into heat. After some drama, an escape and some very shocking action’s on shepherds part that stunned me stupid, the mate bond is damaged to an extent that leads to a shocking finale.totally get Claire’s reaction what on earth is going through that alphas head, cannot get my head round shepherds mindset is he evil or misunderstood time will tell, don’t think any amount of purring is going to get him off the hook this time, enthralling read so looking forward to book two
