Book Spotlight, Giveaway, and Review for: Someone Else's Skye (Men of Brahm Hill, Book One) By: Christine Wenrick

Title: Someone Else's Skye (Men of Brahm Hill, Book One) 

Source: Review Request

Genre: Paranormal Romance 

Length: 306 pages

Reviewed by: Emi 

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, survives the bloody battle of Brahm Hill but loses 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 mingled heavy breathing with a sexy Dhampir in a tiny closet somewhere. But when Kane is sent into the freezing tundra of the Northwest Territories to investigate a troublesome supernatural being reported to be on the loose, he soon crosses paths with a woman who almost instantly drives him insane with desire . . . because she doesn't seem to be falling for his 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 she can’t seem to ignore. 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?

My Review: 

Someone Else's Skye is the first book in The Men of Brahm Hill series, but it is a follow up series to The Charmed Trilogy, which is another great series. I definitely recommend that you read that first so you can get better acquainted with the characters.  And trust me once you meet Kane, you'll be speed reading to get to his book, lol.  I liked all of the characters in The Charmed Trilogy, but once I was introduced to Kane, I couldn't wait to read his story. I have been looking forward to Someone Else's Skye, and it did NOT disappoint in the least. When I starting reading it, I just assumed it was going to be a good vs evil kind of thing, but I was so wrong. It had me turning the pages quickly to see what was going to happen next.  I was just like, Wow!! What an amazing read!

When Kane and his friend and fellow Guardian Aiden travel to another Brethren Location to help out with a mysterious being, he finds himself distracted by the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. He assumes that while he is working on finding out more about this new paranormal entity he could have some fun with Skye, but he has quite the challenge ahead of him. Skye Matthews recognizes Kane instantly from that night on the  battle field, but says nothing of it, and tries her best to ignore his advances and stay focused on her assignment. Eventually, like all determined men do, he chips away at her resolve and gets a little taste. 

Someone Else's Skye was a great read! I cannot wait to see who of The Brahm Hill men is next, though I have a hunch on who it may be. 
I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.

  1. It sounds like a terrific book! I will look forward to reading it!

  2. This sounds interesting

  3. Thanks for the post and suggestion. My girlfriend has been getting in to paranormal romance books lately so I'm looking for some new titles for her. You might like the book I just got her for her birthday, it's called “The Children of Gavrilek” by Julie Kirtón Chandler, She really likes is and has suggested it to one of her friends. Thanks again for the idea.

  4. If you are looking for a great para romance, check out Dark Canvas by Jody Summers. That's a great one! is the book site for info. There are some ones that look really good, I need a few of them but my tbr list is almost as big as my laundry pile, maybe if I didn't spend so much time reading...
