A new paranormal romance from Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestseller Jaymin Eve.
My father made a terrible mistake. One I’m left paying for.
As a wolf shifter growing up in a strong pack, I should be living my best life. But after my father tried to kill our leader, I’m labelled 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 leader’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.
Afterall, 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.

Opening line
From the ashes, the phoenix will rise. 
I reread that line from my college assignment. 

I picked Rejected to read purely based on the cover didn't even read the synopsis before starting. Mera's father made a mistake that destroyed her family and life in the pack she lost more than just a father that day. Now she's bulled by her peers in the pack, treated as the lowest in the pack and struggling to survive. What keeps her going is that one day she will have control of her wolf and be able to run away from the pack with her best friend. 

After her first shift she finds that her mate is none other than one of her tormentors who rejects her. As she and her wolf are rejected she does something she shouldn't be able to do touches the shadow world catching the attention of Shadow Beast the creator of shifters. He sweeps her off into his world with a mission to figure out how to touch the shadow world and catch the creatures she released touching the shadow world. 

I loved Mera right from the start she is easy to connect with you can't help loving her. She's a little broken but now that she's escaped her abusive pack she has a chance to find herself and learn more about who she is. I'm so on the fence about Shadow I want to love him but I'm not sure I trust him yet. I guess we will see how it goes in the next book. I also like Angel's part in the story and can't wait to learn more about her story. 

I've read several books by Jaymin Eve so I have high expectations for her books and Rejected doesn't disappoint. I love the authors writing style it's easy to get lost in and lose all track of time as Mera's story is hard to put down ended up finishing it in just a few hours. I loved the story it's a cliffhanger so I plan to wait till the third book before reading the 2nd one. I'm terrible with book hangovers. Highly recommend you won't be disappointed. Another amazing series by the author.
