How do you tell yourself not to breathe?
He is my mate, and she is his everything. But he chose her, against every single instinct that we both know. For that, I have been whipped, shunned, shamed, disgraced, and broken. All for one moment of madness I could not control...
After two years, I left, unable to bear the pain and loneliness anymore. That was then. This is...more
Clayton is a cheater. He emotionally cheated on his chosen mate Kennedy. Kennedy was a pathetic loser who ...more
The author totally fucked up the concept of mate! But the story hooked me because I wanted to know how she was going to develop this.
Clayton and Kennedy are despicable and selfish. To consider murdering his mate so they can be together is unacceptable. It demonstrates their character.
The two made a point of humiliating the heroine and showing how insignificant she was to them.
Our heroine suffered all kinds of abuse and was then completely ignored, as if she were a ...more
I am truly sorry for the people who loved this book, but I didn't at all.
First off, I couldn't even finish it. I gave up long after Rya found another love.
This story is the epitome of cliche: girl who gets rejected by her mate because he loves another. To make it worse, this story didn't make a lot of sense to me; the mate bond is supposed to be super strong, so the guy should be conflicted at least, or have some regrets, his love for the other girl should also disappear.
But not ...more
I loved the angst of Clayton. I loved the premise of the story. Rya is a female wolf rejected by her fate/moon chosen mate, Clayton, and someone who is deemed valuable when she reaches her adulthood just not by her mate. His human side chooses another wolf over her, and the circumstances around this situation ...more
Fell in love ,fell in hate , cried so much and rejoiced just as much.
Clayton made me comment and no matter how much I dislike him ( hate him ) I always go and read it over again because I also love all other characters so much.
This story literally sings to readers emotions
If your looking for cliche in Rachelle's stories You will find none.
I rarely read PNR and a small fraction of what little I read is Shifter PNR.
But I do have reading buddies that love them and Clayton came highly recommended. Mainly because one friend in particular had been obsessed with finding a good rejected mate story. I was so excited for her that I decided to read it too.
I'm happy I did. I enjoyed this book thoroughly.
World building and structure of the wolf pack was done very well. Author's voice and writing style are unique
This book had my heart painfully clenching, hurting until the end; it's devastating and wrenches your emotions like it's the most natural thing in the world. The characters are really wolves and they behave as such, no humanization here to save our delicate ...more
This book really digs deep into emotions, its built with characters that are whole and flawed, and makes you fall in love with its universe.
I have read the unedited form multiple times, but it is nothing like, in an emotional sense, to holding it's edited and ...more
Rachelle is such a gifted writer!❤
I picked this book up from a large group of people recommending it in a Facebook group Im a part of. I thought the idea sounded fresh, interesting and for as many people saying it was an awesome read, I was excited to read it. I came in knowing that at one point this was on Wattpad and had quite a bit more length to it. I think that this version should include what was edited out from Wattpad, so that things are a bit easier to understand how who relates to whom and why.
CLAYTON was the first book of Rachelle Mills that I read, and it was the beginning of an amazing journey I never dreamed of taking.
How do you tell yourself not to breathe? The books title is CLAYTON but the story is about Ryas journey. A female that has faced the ultimate loss, rejection by her mate the one who is supposed to be her everything. She lives the agony of seeing him love another and consequently being shunned by her pack for an ...more
The ups and downs in this paranormal dark romance, take you through the wringer emotionally, but the story is as beautiful as it is heartbreaking. Not all mates are fated and selected by the moon. Some wolves choose to love someone they pick. Whether they defied nature and denied their living fated mates or suffered the loss of a fated mate and fell in love again, it's a hard path. Love these characters. It's a long book, but there's a lot of story to tell ...more
Rachelle Mills is very unique and talented author! She has built all by herself a big fandom and ...more
Some peoples guilty pleasures are ice cream in bed and the Kardashians. My guilty pleasures are tragic love stories. Now before you freak and think that the main love dies your wrong, this is the story about the choices we make for ourselves and for others in our search for what makes us happy and the road it takes to get there. Its also an added bonus that theres werewolves who are more like-like than most other paranormal books. I strongly suggest that you give this book a ...more
There are no words good enough for this book. I was bawling all during Chapter One. Rya is my new favorite heroine. The pain and suffering that she endures because of her pack is heartbreaking. Her strength is overwhelming as she fights with her conflicting emotions. I loved and hated both Clayton, Dallas, and don't even get me started on Kennedy. It was an emotional rollercoaster of pain, heartbreak, lies, and betrayal. One of the best I have read this year and I can ...more
i have read a shit ton of shifter books over the years and often the H and h talk about committing to each other even though they aren't fated mates (usually they end up finding out they are so problem solved) however I have never ever read a book of the impact this actually has on the mate of these H and h. this book is totally unique!
i devoured this book in one sitting, the writing is fantastic, it grips you from the very first page. its trauma, its ...more
