Rejected Mate Academy is back in session.

Unwanted. Dismissed. Forsaken.

As if it’s not bad enough that I’m the OG at Greystone, Lydia has decided that the school’s apparent generosity is running out. I have two weeks to get my mate to accept me—or I’m out. Left to die. Feral.

With the odds already stacked against me, I return to Daybreak for the Winter Solstice festivities.

***3.5 stars***

I was eagerly awaiting this second book in the series after the first book BLEW ME away. Untamed was hands down one of my favorite reads of the year and one of the most innovative and energetic takes I’d read on the rejected mate trope in a while. The world building, the chemistry, the clever and subversive take on the arbitrary and patriarchal social constructs of love and relationships- it was just chefs kiss. And, I was excited to get the backstory Mia in particular- the longes

Another great book written by E.M. Moore. If you loved book 1, this is the perfect continuation. I absolutely love E.M. Moore’s writing, I love every book I have read by this author.

Fun read! Definitely interesting to see what happens to Greystone Gang. I also felt like this book left me with a ton of questions, that I don't know whether they will be answered in another book or spin-off? Hopefully E.M. Moore will write a follow up or an epilogue that can close out any thoughts or questions we have that were unanswered. But overall, super cute story! ...more

Erin has created a unique and intriguing world with her original take on wolf shifter society in the Rejected Mates Academy series.

We meet Mia in the previous book and I was already smitten with her sassiness and steadfast friendship. Erin’s writing is so detailed and engaging, you can’t help but be completely captivated by this world. While reading Forsaken, I experienced every emotion right alongside Mia. Anger, hurt, betrayal and a series of events that has Mia questioning everything she has
By E.M. Moore

Mia has been at the Rejected Mate Academy for a year now. The longest any student has been there. While her mate, Sean, still shows no sign of changing his mind she and Nathan, the mate of the girl Sean rejected Mia for, draw closer than ever. When Mia is given a deadline for her and Sean to reconcile she's given one last chance to make things right between them or she'll be expelled and doomed to go feral. But does she really want to make things right at this point? More im

This is a stand-alone within the Rejected Mates Academy series, book 1 is a stand-alone as well. Such a different and creative take on the rejected mates trope, it was really refreshing. Although you don’t have to read the first book, it does help since some characters are referenced and are present within this book. As well, this book doesn’t delve as much into the world building, it’s more surface level descriptions. It’s still easy to get into the story and understand but you might have a few ...more

Rejected mates heaven

The second book in the Rejected Mate Academy series of interconnected standalones. If you’ve read Untamed, Kinsey and Jonahs book then you’ve already met Mia.
This book is slightly different from the first book since Mia has been rejected by her mate for the longest amount of time. Her friendships have become more important than her bond.
I don’t want to give away any of the plot twists as I did not see some of those coming. Gayle and Sean both rejected Nathan and Mia but n

I absolutely love E.M. Moore’s writing, I love every book I read by this author.

I enjoyed untamed, the first book in this series and it was one of my ultimate faves of all time and I’m super excited about this book too.
I’m so jealous of the purple hair on the cover photo 😱 Mia has such fun hair.
Poor Mia , the pain she suffers it’s horrible.
After what happened with Mia and Nathan in book one I wasn’t expecting this now in book two, what does it even mean?!

Forsaken - book 2 in the Rejected Mate Academy and it follows on at a quicker pace than the first book. This book completely draws you in. What i liked about this book the most was the main characters - Mia & Nathan. They both seemed to have grown more in this book than when they popped up in the first book where they were more reserved which is understandable with everything that happens to them in this one. Oh boy is it a lot. Plot twists, death attempts, plenty of steam, love and joy this boo ...more

Another amazing book in this series! I’m loving this series so far this is a addicting emotional story full of pain and anguish I loved the character development in this one the twists and turns kept me on my toes can’t wait for the next book! I love the fact that each book is a stand-alone based on a different couple. Another five star must read from this author!

3.5 ⭐️. So this was another good rejected mates book by E.M. Moore.

It is set in the same world as her last book but goes a totally different route with the fated mates troupe.

The author is writing a unique spin on each couples story so each book is fresh. Looking forward to more books in the world, hopefully getting a book on the rejected alpha.

I'm hooked!

If I could give this series six stars, I would. Best rejected mates themed series/books I have read to date. E.M. Moore has created a world where everything you thought you knew about mate bonds is now in question. Mia and Nathan are fighting for their freedom, for their lives, for their True Mates, while discovering secrets that could destroy them or the whole pack dynamic. I am on pins and needle for the next book!

Forsaken is the second book in the Rejected Mate Academy series, and in my opinion this series is getting better as it goes along. I really enjoyed book #1, Untamed (click here to read my review), but I loved this second book. Mia is a strong, intelligent character, and I enjoyed viewing the story through her eyes. I found this installment to have a grittier approach than Untamed, and for me, it really boosted the involvement level .

Another great read in this series. Untamed was actually the first book I read in the rejected mates trope, and I fell in love with it. I couldn’t wait for this book to be released. We met Mia in the previous book, as a dorm mate of Kinsey’s, who was initially rejected by her mate, Jonah. The two became close friends, so it was nice to read Mia’s story.

While it doesn’t end on a cliffhanger per se, I don’t feel that things are 100% resolved. Do they make it to the place that accepts pack outcasts?

Forsaken is the second book in the Rejected Mates Academy series and can be read as a standalone. We do have crossover characters from the first book and we met our leading couple for this book in the first book as well. With that said, I recommend you read the first book before you start but it is not necessary.

This book, y'all, this book got me in the feels for real. I enjoyed the first book in the series but this one was a step above for me. Maybe it was that there was so much more on the lin

This is the second stand alone in the Rejected Mate Academy series and things take a much darker turn in this book.

We had already met Mia and Nathan during Kinsey's story and it was one I was desperate to be told and I'm so glad it has been.

Mia's story is full of heartbreak, rejection and overwhelming darkness. Her mate Sean signed the papers that sent her to the Academy over a year ago and there she has been left to rot. She was left feeling worthless in the darkness of her own mind.

The is the second stand alone book in the Rejected Mates Academy series. This book is centered on Mia and Nathan who we met during Kinsey's story in book one. I can not say how much I was looking forward to this story and it did not disappoint.
Mia and Nathan are both from the Daybreak pack and we're both rejected by their mates who surprise surprise were dating prior to finding out their mates status. Mia has been at Greystone academy the longest with Nathan shortly behind her. Mia and Nathan h

I’ve been anticipating this book since the moment I finished Untamed and let me tell you, it did not disappoint!

There’s a completely different feel to Mia and Nathan + their mates that is so unique and there were so many times I was just not sure what was gonna happen.

EM Moore never lets me down though, so I knew I was gonna be safe. At least in the end lol she definitely took me on a ride there where I was literally freaking out thinking “omg, is *THIS* going to happen!? NO WAY!”

Her fated mate rejected her and thus she became a student at Greystone academy.

She's been at the school longer than any other pupil.

Can she ever get him to change his mind?

This is the second book in the rejected mate academy series. The first book was "Untamed" for anyone who wants to start at the beginning.

Having said that each book is a standalone, but they are interconnected.

I absolutely loved the first book in this new and exciting world, and so started reading this hoping it would be a

WOW! This was an emotional rollercoaster ride that pulled on my heartstrings and gutted me throughout. Mia and Nathan are put through so much emotionally that you can’t help but want to just reach in and hug them. The hurt, anger, betrayals and the ultimate rejection that they are put through every day had my head spinning with anger for them. To be rejected by your mate the way that Mia and Nathan were, was so gut-wrenching that it hurt me! I felt their emotions and their

Absolutely loved this. The tension, the twists, the possessiveness, the hot as hell "forbidden" moments, everything, so freaking good! My need to throat punch Sean was at an all time high. Gayle I wished to get "accidentally" bumped off a cliff. Then, throat punching Sean was no longer an acceptable punishment, but everything worked out well in the end.

But, apparently she has outstayed her welcome and is given a time limit, to either get her mate to accept her, or go feral!

Book 2, Forsaken in the Reject Mate Academy Series is about Mia and Nathan. The plot continues to thicken and my curiosity has been sated in regards to Mia. She is so far my favourite. Forbidden steamy love and all that.

Mia is a long standing student of Greystone Academy, the longest they’ve had. Nathan is her best friend and the second longest running student. But Mia’s time is coming to end, she’s run out of time and it’s change her mates mind or face going feral.

Mia’s character intrigued me

In my opinion, it’s very hard to have follow up books in the series be as good as the first, kind of like movies. In the case of Forsaken that is definitely not the case! Forsaken was just as amazing as Untamed! I was sucked into this couple from the first chapter and I spent a lot of this book wondering how the heck this would all pan out in the end. This story was so completely different from Kinsey and Jonah, I loved that aspect of it. I really enjoyed Mia as a FMC and I was totally onboard w ...more

We knew a bit about Mia and her situation from Book 1 (Untamed) in this world, but I really enjoyed delving more into what’s going on there.

I liked that we got to watch her grow, from someone who is just so down trodden, to finding herself whilst also giving a big middle finger to “fate”. Because in this case, Fate is the absolute worst and needs that finger.

Nathan is just the best. Sean is the worst. Actually the worst. It’s a fight against Fate and her heart, which one will be triumphant?
