[Ebook] ➧ Born (B Cubed #1) Author Jenna McCormick – 91videos.co

Jenna McCormick is one of those authors that if you read now, in ten years you ll be bragging to your friends that you read her before they all did And trust me, they all will.B Cubed is a story about the earth after an apocolypse Humanity isn t very human any and the world above is almost completely unliveable Those still living are divided as Born, Bred and Borg The Born are those natural born humans who hold themselves above others, Bred are engineered humans who serve the Born and the Borg, or Cyborg, are humans with programs Part robot kinda but so much.The story is an interesting mix of science fiction world building and erotic romance Task Mistress Allora is the heroine who is trying to understand her place in this world without understanding that she is a huge catalyst in changing it Bred slave Cormack discovers a book that starts Allora s journey through understanding her world and herself and also opening her heart to love.The sex is pretty hot and I like how Allora has the upper hand in so much but realizes Cormack s strength in his ability to give and bring pleasure He shakes her world sexually at first and then in every other way later.The writing is tight and McCormick is proving why she s going to be the next big thing soon She hits most of the right notes throughout the story and my greatest complaint was that it ended too soon.This is a good read for anyone who likes something different with heat and thought combined. 3.5 This was recommended to me and I liked it enough that I ve picked up book 2 Born Natural Born Humans Are Precious Few And Dwell

Who Seek What They Have Discovered, A Journal Written By The Prophetess Cassandra And A Way To End The Warring Between The Factions Forever I decided to participate in a TBR Challenge this year after lurking around them for a number of years My actual owned TBR honestly isn t that bad as far as numbers go, because I used to be too broke to hoard, and once I could I had mainly switched to digital, so it made sense to make my TBR as virtual as my books Where I have gotten myself in a small bit of overload is that I then discovered ereaderIQ and I uploaded my whole wishlist to it and have been picking these books up either free or when they are under a dollar, often without considering if I even want them any.This month s theme is We Love Short Shorts , which I actually kind of don t I usually only pick them up as part of an established series I am reading and I read them immediately, so there wasn t a lot on my TBR that fit except for serials I picked up because they were free and by favored authors but then I never read them because I looked at how much they cost over the whole span of the serial and I gave up So this is as close as I could come It is 106 pages, it has been on my TBR for a number of years, and I actually bought it 02 12 2015 when it hit the low price of free I think as much as anything I haven t read it because I was toying with not starting the series until I had picked up the whole trilogy, but I still don t have the third one The rest of it is that it just fell off my radar No time like the present though.So I think this went on my TBR when I was having a major love affair cyborgs Plus it is post apocalyptic dystopian, which we all know I can t pass up I wish I could remember how I came across this book, but I have only recently been tracking in any sort of way why I added something to my list, and frankly I am still pretty horrible about it.Anyway, about this particular book It began with a prophesy before the world as we know it Poor Cassandra, always born knowing the future but cursed that none should believe her Or at least most Unfortunately it is the ones who did that spawned the wars and horrors There is very much a chicken and egg situation here Did the things come about because that was what was always going to happen Or did they come about because they knew and believed the prophesy and sought to twist it to their own ends Having read the book, I still don t really know because we just don t have enough information.This book is just super short, and really I think that is a shame, because the bones were there for something rather epic But short as it is, as much as I liked it, it still left me feeling somewhat unsatisfied I just wanted Now, there are stories in the series, but it appears they don t focus on these two characters to further the overall plot.As for the two main characters, Cormack and Allora are two very interesting characters with histories and futures shrouded in mystery There are also some slightly uncomfortable power dynamics from start to finish It is often unsettling, I mean he is a slave and she is an overseer with the power of life and death over him You get just the barest of sketches of who they are as people, but it is just enough to make them just real enough to actually care.The BAM Plot twists and the story is basically over Seriously, the book is so much shorter than I wish it were, but I ll definitely be pulling the next book out of my stack I can t wait to find out what else Cassandra has up her sleeve.https burnsthroughherbookshelf.word BrredIn the future life is divided by factions She is raised by Born but is a new creation that with her bred will found a new society. This was like a 2.5 I just didn t feel connected to the characters I m not sure if it was the tone of the writing or the pace of the story but it felt like I was hearing of a story second hand I m not interested in reading any of the series. I can t wait to find out what happens to Allora and Cormack and their desire to unite the world This book is exciting even without the sex and definitely engaging. In this futuristic world there are 3 kinds of humans Born, Bred, BorgBorn is what you want to be So they thought they are the ones in charge, Bred are the slaves that serve the Born, Borg are the ones feared by the Born and Bred created to serve the Born and fight the Borg.Cormack understands that as Bred he is a slave He was made to serve the Born then he will be recycled killed The Borns have made there home beneath the surface of the earth this is to help protect them from the the cyborgs A Born a Bred are forbidden to be together A Bred who reaches beyond his station will be recycled immediately Cormack cannot stop thinking about Allora a Born his task mistress Now Cormack has found a treasure, an old lunch box that was buried deep within the earth His task mistress Allora was kind enough to let him open the box Inside is a book and Cormack s death, for any Bred found in possession of a book is to be recycled immediately.Allora does not wish to torture the Bred workers She is kind fair, but she herself is a servant of there colony She is to report this finding to the overlord at once, even though it will cost Cormack his life she does not agree with this punishment Allora also can t deny the attraction she has to this beautiful Bred man with the piercing blue eyes Something about Cormack has Allora seeking another way to view right and wrong.Allora will need Cormack than she realizes as the cyborg s come for her The book which Cormack unearthed is the journal of Cassandra Cassandra was a prophet from a world of long ago who predicted this future Cassandra has a way to end the warring enslaving between all the human and Allora Cormack are the keys to unlock a new future.The cyborgs are not what they have been told The Born have lied to everyone, brainwashing them into believing the cyborgs are the enemy Together Allora and Cormack will learn the truth and they will have to trust in each other to live among the borg in their new home while learning about the Born, Bred, Borgs and themselves everyday.At just over 100 pages this was a fast read The story is very interesting and has great potential for the next books in this series This story shows how even when we trust in a system for which we were raised with certain beliefs or truths nothing is absolute To see the full picture and understand ourselves and the world in which we live and even our place within the world we need an open mind and multiple POV s. This is a post apocalyptic view of the world that is divided into what I can only describe as three camps Those who are Born who appear to rule, those who are Bred who are little than disposable slaves and Cyborgs who are terrifying I thought there were some really interesting ideas in play here with the past connected to the future by the prophecies of Cassandra This story mainly focuses on Allora who is seemingly a privileged Born female and the connection she makes with Cormack one of the Bred If I m blunt this was muddied by just far too much sex when I was actually desperate for information Still it s actually a very interesting idea which unfortunately lost some appeal due to the brevity and the attempt at erotica It does however have an ending that is tantalising so as I type I m undecided whether or not to continue the journey. I listened this with RU It wasn t a bad plot idea but I thought the story was sacrificed in favor of longer and frequent sex scenes.
