Audiobook Review: Rejection (The Mate Games, #2). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Rejection by K. Loraine

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I made my choice, and it wasn’t him. But Kingston Farrell won’t take no for an answer, and I’m not sure I want him to.

Noah gave me his mark, made me his, and vanished all in the same night. Kingston used that moment to claim me and bind me to him irrevocably. What he couldn’t know was by sealing our bond, he set something in motion none of us can stop.

He unlocked my wolf, freed her from her cage, and she wants nothing more than to make up for lost time by starting off with a bang…literally. His mark throws me straight into my first heat. My wolf mate can give me his knot, but I’m insatiable. I need more. I need them all.

My Norse demigod.
My royal vampire.
My fated wolf.
My tortured priest.

But we can’t afford the distraction. A war is brewing, and there’s no denying I’m at the center of it all. Not when girls who look just like me keep dying.

I thought I’d gotten rid of the target on my back, but when I find myself in a demon’s clutches I know it’s not over.

Something evil is coming. It’s stalking my dreams. Making me second guess everything. And with each new attack one question looms…

What if that evil is me?

The heroine: Sunday – She is a wolf shifter and princess of the most powerful wolf pack though she has never been able to shift and is seen as a failure by her family and pack. She was sent to Ravenscroft University to find her wolf. Her wolf is closer to the surface than ever before but is still blocked from shifting. Though she has found four men whom she is attracted to. Her roommate, Moira is a powerful witch and had a vision telling her that Sunday must choose and the wrong choice would have dire consequences.

The Heroes: Noah, Caleb, Kingston & Alek – Noah Blackthorne (a vampire prince who knew from the beginning that Sunday was his mate despite her being a shifter, he has been dating her for months), Caleb Gallagher (a vampire and former Priest who can’t seem to fight his attraction to Sunday despite the catholic guilt he endures), Kingston Farrell (Sunday’s werewolf mate, who declared his love for her despite her constant rejection), Alek Nordson (a viking demigod who just wants to be with Sunday and has no problem with sharing her).

The Story: The first book was a great introduction to the characters and world building, but centered mostly on the relationship between Sunday and Noah. I have looked ahead at the blurb on each of the books in this series and though this series is a reverse harem, it seems like each book really focuses on Sunday’s relationship with one of the men, who is pictured on the cover of that book. This is new to me and I kind of like it, since we really get to know each character individually and at length.

This book focuses on Sunday and Kingston, the wolf mate she rejected and the next Alpha of the Farrell pack. Sunday rejected him because she was trying to save face for herself and her pack since she couldn’t shift into her wolf. Though her rejection hurt and embarrassed Kingston and he made her pay for it by talking crap about her and bullying her. Since they have been at Ravenscroft, he has both messed up with her and also declared his love and tried to protect her.

I haven’t always liked the way Sunday has treated Kingston. Sure he didn’t handle things well when they were younger and handled them even worse in book one, but Sunday wanted him from the beginning and kept rejecting him and she was never very nice about it. She kept hurting him over and over, so I felt for him and thought he deserved better.

Despite the fact that Kingston went to ease his frustrations with someone else in the first book, Sunday basically did the same thing when she went to Noah. From his point of view it was exactly the same even though for us as readers we know this is a reverse harem so it wasn’t really cheating on her part. But for Kingston, it didn’t get to that place yet in the relationship of all her men. I didn’t like the priest much in the first book because he was a bit too priestly, but I am liking him more and more. It doesn’t hurt that he is narrated by Jason Clarke who has a deep sexy voice. I also love Alek, the viking demigod who is a bit of a dashing rake and very protective of Sunday.

“Noah was my peace, Kingston was my home, Alek was my superpower and Caleb, well I guess we’d find out if the infuriating priest ever decided to take that step”.

The book is told in multiple points of view via duet narration and narrated by a full cast. This series is narrated by Stella Hunter, Jason Clarke, JF Harding, James Joseph, Aaron Shedlock and a special appearance by Shane East. Jason Clarke, Aaron Shedlock and Shane East are some of my favorite narrators and I just love duet narration so this is a great series to listen to via audiobook!
