Synopsis from Goodreads


One night . . . one violent supernatural battle . . . and five stories of the men whose lives will be changed by it.

Kane, Brethren Guardian and one of the few, Natural Shape-Shifters left in existence, survived the bloody battle of Brahm Hill but lost two of his closest friends. For all of his good-natured sarcasm and eye-popping good looks, Kane finds himself unable to completely forget about that night, so he seeks comfort in the one thing he is truly good at . . . sex!

This shape-shifting bad boy believes in having a good time—a very good time, usually involving some mingled heavy breathing with a sexy Dhampir in a tiny closet somewhere. But when he is sent into the freezing tundra of the Northwest Territories to investigate a troublesome supernatural being on the loose, he ends up crossing paths with a woman who almost instantly drives him insane with want . . . because she doesn’t seem to be falling for the shifter’s charms.

It’s completely inexplicable.

Skye Matthews has a job to do, and she needs to be focused on that, not spending all her time rebuffing the advances of this way-too-cocky and handsome stranger. Yet, there is something irresistible about this self-involved playboy that Skye can’t seem to stay away from. And when the unidentified Kane is sent to investigate takes an unnatural interest in Skye, protecting her becomes the Guardian’s top priority.

But . . . can he save Skye from a supernatural being no one has ever encountered before?

*********************************************

      I have definitely found a PNR series to add to my must-buy list. I am in love. It has a little of everything I could ask for. Someone Else's Skye beautifully balances humor, action, mystery, and romance. This is definitely a favorite for me this year.

     Our main characters Kane and Skye were great. The chemistry between them just jumps off the page. Kane thinks he is God's gift to women and he may be right. No one can resist. I loved him. He is the very definition of an alpha male and I loved him all the more for it. Skye may look like an angel, but she was a little spitfire. She could really hold her own. I love that she is never intimated or even scared. She is as much of a badass as the guys. I loved that she didn't immediately fall for Kane's games. I loved the witty and funny dialogue between them. The mind games they play on each other had me laughing so hard. I also enjoyed the side characters as well. Aiden was a lovable giant. I hope to get more of him. 

     I wasn't aware that this series is a spinoff of Wenrick's other series, The Charmed Trilogy. As a matter of fact, I hear the book begins where the last of the trilogy left off. There were times when things were mentioned that I thought I missed or something, but now it makes sense. But this book is still fine to read on its own though. Wenrick does a great job for those that may be out of the loop. I will be reading the Charming Trilogy though because I am curious about characters that were mentioned early on. I really love Wenrick's style though. She gave our characters a lot of depth. Nothing is as it seems on the surface and I loved that. It really kept the book suspenseful. 

     I loved the plot. There is something fast and untouchable that is killing off Lycans. Lycans and vampires are in a war with the shifters. Lycans are essentially the bad guys. You don't want to cross them if you are human. Things are getting nasty, but whatever it is that is out there may be an even bigger threat. It is considered an "Unidentified". No one knows what it is, but it is faster than a vampire and it is killing Lycans without even leaving a scent. Whatever it is, Skye is the only one who might have a clue as to what it is. She has been sent on an assignment concerning the Wraith (that is what they call it) and she can't let anyone know about it. But that isn't the only secret she is hiding. 

     This was an amazing read. This story was engaging and unique, which I really liked. Wenrick really knows how to write a compelling story. I was hooked from the first page. The characters are memorable and strong. I was so invested in the story. I just couldn't get enough of it. This is a definite favorite. I look forward to more books from Wenrick. Highly recommended.
