What would it be like to live in a world where you were considered abnormal even to those who were above the norm?
Jenna O’Conner is not human, nor is she considered the norm for the supernatural Other community. It’s important she hide her true nature from both humans and Others.
Right after moving to a new city, Jenna runs into trouble in the form of a deadly, mouthwatering man named Adam McPhee. He’s an alpha werewolf determined to do two things: figure out exactly what Jenna is and have her all to himself.
As if that weren’t enough for Jenna to deal with, a group of extremist Shifters who consider humans to be cattle and who think that factions of Others should stay within their own species—never to intermingle—come to town. Jenna has to find a way to shut them down, but in the process of trying to do that, she discovers things about herself that even she had never thought were possible.
Who said the wolf was what you had to worry about?
Welcome to the real world—the Other world.

It was good, but...
This book is a bit hard to review. It was a good story, but there was so much information thrown in. I found myself skipping so many pages and just focusing on the 2 main characters. One time i skipped thorugh almost 10 pages because there was no dialogue, it was simply characters thinking. the story was nice, but i don’t think i’ll continue with the series. I don’t like skipping pages, and when I do skip pages, and i can still keep up with the story it is a deal breaker.
This book had me laughing throughout the story with the strong female character.... the morning coffee scene was hilarious, couldn't stop laughing!!!! The sexual tension was very very well written too. Love this author, loved the storyline and loved the book. Definitely recommend!!!
Sassy and fun
Really enjoyed this first book in this series. It twists some of what we generally accept in supernatural mythology such as the origins of supers (referred to here as Others) and the various abilities and ways to kill them. The story is intriguing and sets up a story arc that will run through the series according to the author notes. While the couple here, Adam and Jenna, get their HEA much of the story's premise is unresolved. For people who don't like to be forced to buy another book to get their story conclusions this would be a turn off.
Jenna is an interesting character. A hybrid Other who has been kept completely in seclusion hidden from other Others all her life is essentially outed and has to adapt to her new reality. It becomes clear her family did her a grave disservice by not educating her about Others and much of the book is her learning and navigating her new reality. It's a fun trip for the reader. Plus, Jenna is sassy and not thrilled with pack hierarchy crap so her comments to that end are very entertaining.
I enjoyed Jessie Lane's writing and will continue on with the series.
