Publisher's Summary

Number one in the entire Kindle Store. 

A new paranormal romance from Wall Street Journal and USA Today best seller 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. 

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. 

*If you like sexy, dark paranormal romances, with humor, steam, action, a tough heroine, and an antihero, this is for you. 

Rejected is full-length (100,000 words), is book one in Shadow Beast Shifters series, and ends on a cliff-hanger. It's recommended for 18+ due to language and sexual situations.

22yr old acts/thinks like a 16yr old

Imagine a 16 year old girl writing a book about how she thinks “grown ups” act. That’s this book. I promise you no 22 year old cares that much about their virginity.

Pre-warning you. Zero things were explained or finished in this book. Literally zero of the plots, ideas, backstories or anything else was explained fully. I liked the concept and ideas but it was so badly executed that I think I genuinely hated this book. My suggestion would be to have maybe the first 75 out of 1,000 plots and side stories finished by the end of the book. Give us something. Anything. To feel like we accomplished something in this book. It’s just so long and drawn out I almost couldn’t finished it but I liked the concept so much I just kept hoping it would get better.

But that being said....if you need a book guaranteed to make you fall asleep. This is it! I put this book on and boom. Asleep. It’s repetitive and boring enough to lull even the toughest insomniac to bed.

Side note. Stop repetitively using “girl”. Nobody says “hey girl, I really missed you girl” ok so that’s not an actual quote....I don’t think...but you get the idea. That’s how she talks to all females. It’s obnoxious.

Side side note. The main character is so much talk and absolutely no action. So if you hate girls that act tough but then let guys do whatever they want and just sit there inner monologuing about all the things they should do but not doing a single freaking one. Don’t read this.

What A Waste Of A Credit Coin

If you absolutely hate sap stories where the female protagonist is the most useless human/shifter ever. Out of all the series I've read I've read books on wattpad that do better than this book. It gave me a headache just dealing with the protagonists decisions. This book practically glorifies the abuse this girl goes through with her so called "mate". This kind of book is absolute trash. Thanks again for wasting my money author.

Oh my goodness ❤️❤️

I absolutely loved this book. So much so til I had to immediately buy and READ the second installment. This author is new to me but I am so glad I took a chance and purchased this audio. The story pulled me in and would NOT let me go til the end. It had entertainment....heated scenes everything I want in my books ....I am counting the days til the final installment is released.

What am I listening to?

I was so very much into this book until chapters 18-24. I couldn't listen any more. Inky...? I think this paranormal was more paranormal than I was expecting. Not so much about shifters as it was way out there extraterrestrial creatures. I wish I could get my credit back. Michelle Sparks did a wonderful job narrating; that's about the best part of this book.

excellent

I love practically everything about this story. Especially the fact that I didn't see a lot of this stuff coming and I like the buildup of the characters. The only thing that I didn't like is that at the Cliffhanger after about 50 some odd chapters that we could have done without! Other than that it's an excellent book with excellent narrations excellent characters excellent overall!

Wow!!

I loved this book. I, honestly, did not think I was going to be in to it much but that first chapter grabs you and then you are just hooked! I was cheering, excited, ticked off, and a whole palette more! Amazing. They were working on the 2nd book when I got the first done, so I have had to read it, but today seen it was back on market so starting that one over! Hopefully, the third will be fixed by the end of that one. woot woot!

What type of Sue: A Jerk Sue

I was trying to figure out what was wrong with this character and book for a while as I couldn’t quite put my finger on it. When I was googling types of Sue, I found it:

“Jerk Sue

A short tempered character who lashes out with her fists, usually at men. Jerk Sue is probably supposed to come across as a feisty, kick-ass, independent woman who can fight her own battles, but actually comes across as an unhinged mentalcase that bullies other characters into getting her own way.”

This is not a fierce female, she’s just a thunderc**t playing the victim and the backstory is so all over the place, I just spent the entire time listening feeling cross.

You can definitely play protagonist Bingo with this one you’ve got all Cliches that plague this genre:

Family tragedy: Check.
Crazy/Jealous female side character who is so pathetic its actually insulting to women: Check
Virgin but weirdly promiscuous: Check
Crap Mum: Check
Outcast: Check


I genuinely cannot think of anything to appropriately convey the scathing inner monologue when it comes to this story. Please don’t waste a credit on it

Yet another amazing installment

Jaymin Eve is literally delving into everything I love to read.
This shifter installment is full of story. Not faced paced romance, you get a real build up.
The ending leaves you going straight for book 2.
Im glad I waited till all 3 books were published as I would not of been able to wait for the next installments to be finalised.
Now where do I find a tattooed god that can growl and pin me against a library?

I loved this book, I was blown away by the plot and characters, who wouldn't love Mera for strength and loyatly, and Inky will always have a special place in my heart! I can't wait for the next instalment it can't be soon enough.

Sexy and such a brilliant lead character

The Shadowbeast series has really been fantastic to listen to. Yes they are sexy paranormal books but the characters are really engaging and likeable. The entire Shadowbeast universe and Solaris system is so clever and richly descriptive. I have now listened to the entire series and had to come back to write a review. The narrators really did an excellent job and the author deserves more recognition for such an imaginative series. I can't wait for more books in this series.

I really do recommend this book. Be warned it is very sexually explicit but the storyline is definitely not your usual erotica. I would love to see this series as films. The world created by the author is rich with detail and really clever.

I really enjoyed this book

this story was quite outside the box when it's comes to shifter stories. I Felt the slow burn between Mera and shadow was a little to slow but I am definitely looking forward to the next story.
The performance of the story was fantastic! I really enjoyed the idea of a male and female narration. it just made the story that little bit more interesting.

Push through the beginning it's worth it

So the first half felt like an Ego stroke by the author Jaymin Eve. It is petty, childish, with lots of swearing and i almost gave up. Then the story got creative and I enjoyed it. Twists you don't expect and I couldn't stop listening. Push through the first half it's worth it

Really good

Mera is a wolf shifter who is tormented by nearly her whole pack because of a mistake that her father made that cost him his life. When she believes she is about to die strange things happen and the lives of everyone are about to change forever. Enter Shadow Beast who created wolf shifters and he takes Mera with him killing the pack alpha on the way out. Theirs is an intense relationship and Shadow learns quickly that there is much more to Mera than meets the eye and after years of abuse she isn’t in the least afraid of him like everyone else. It’s an interesting story that kept me engrossed to the end and I am off to get the second book now.

Disappointed

Story was inconsistent. Characters were dumb and dumber as the story progresses. Some plots seem pointless. Main female character was mouthy but mostly hot air with no substance. Ending was worst, no resolution and just trying to get you to buy the next book. Would stop here and not bother ..too much time invested in a thin plot going nowhere

.
