As a wolf shifter growing up in a strong pack, I should be living my best life. But after my father tried to kill the alpha, I’m labeled an outcast, traitor, less than dirt.
When I can’t take pack life any longer, I run, but apparently they don’t like losing their punching bag. Torin, the alpha’s son, drags me back before my first shift… a shift that will reveal my true mate.
I never could have predicted who mine would be, but the moment my wolf looks upon him, I’m filled with hope for a brighter future.
After all, no one ever rejects their true mate, right?
Wrong. Very wrong.
When the wolves attack, my soul screams for vengeance, and somehow I touch the shadow world. Somehow I bring him to our lands.
The Shadow Beast. Our shifter god. The devil himself.
Turns out being rejected by my mate was only the beginning.Goodreads

I’m not normally much for shifter books, but I love Jaymin Eve, so I picked up Rejected and could not have been happier that I did! I think many times in shifter books, there are all these rules, and while I love an alpha male, sometimes the whole pack thing just doesn’t do it for me. What I loved about this book is that Mera’s pack didn’t do it for her either, and she was actually trying to run away.
This is a new take on shifter romance for me. Mera was strong and independent and basically just wanted to be left alone. At least in my experience, it is not often that you see the pack bully one of their own. I enjoyed this turn of events, given that I do enjoy a bully romance. I liked the idea of Mera being rejected by her fated mate, again a new take on that trope, and the repercussions associated with that!
The story sucked me in right away; as I mentioned, Mera is very strong and independent, but she is also a good person, and I liked her immediately. I wanted to see what happened to her, and I liked her interactions with all of the characters, especially Shadow. This book definitely leaves you wanting more, and I personally can’t wait to read the next book when it comes out.
