Reborn (Alpha’s Claim #3)

Reborn by Addison Cain

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Started slow, but picked up

I was confused by the pacing of this book. It was pretty slow for the first half, then picked up speed more and more as it neared the end. The last parts of the book almost felt glossed over as months passed in the space of a chapter. I was disappointed because, though I raced through the earlier books, I struggled to power through the first half of this one.
Claire softens toward Shepherd in this book, though still struggles with her feelings of responsibility toward the people’s resistance, and toward her friends. As she struggles Shepherd tries to get her to connect with their baby, and puts effort into trying to bring her joy. It was good to see him trying instead of just demanding. I’m still struggling with the marked differences between traditional romances and these Omegaverse books, but I’m enjoying the story outside of that component so I’m trying not to focus too much on terms like “nest” and “knot” as they take me out of the story. But, that’s just me not being used to this type of story.
I thought the author did a great job with the villain in this book- I really hated this person. The brutality set into place, coupled with how well she had several people snowed, was a stark indicator of her being a complete psychopath.
Overall, I enjoyed this book by the end. But, I had to push through the first half.
If Omegaverse is your jam, and you can manage some tricky triggers, I definitely recommend this series. If you’re new to Omegaverse and curious as I was (and understand there are triggers) I still recommend it.

TRIGGERS- violent non-consent; another devastating trigger I won’t name due to spoilers, but if you have a particular trigger that happens to be very sad I suggest you read a review with spoilers before diving into this one.

Shepherd must convince his precious Claire to return his love…

Before he goes mad with longing. It’s not enough to have his mate safely secured in his nest. It’s not enough that she slowly succumbs to her instincts. He wants her heart and soul.

Needs her… before it’s too late.

Thólos is coming apart at the seams, and Shepherd’s men can do nothing to stop it. Real war is on their doorstep, and unless the Alpha tyrant is willing to pay the ultimate, everything he has sacrificed will have been for nothing.

Publisher’s Note: The third book in Addison Cain’s exciting, raw, and suspense-filled Omegaverse series is a Dark Romance featuring complete power exchange.

Compulsive reader. Romantic suspense/contemporary romance/dark romance/NA romance addict. Particularly fond of mafia, forced/arranged marriage, secret baby, kidnapping, and dark alpha heroes. Just out here doing my part for humanity- these books won't read themselves.
