This is the third book in Shannon McKenna’s Obsidian Files Series. Years ago The Obsidian Group preyed on street kids, using them to implant their high tech sensory processors and turning them into genetically enhanced humans. Luke Ryan is the oldest of the Ryan brothers who were kidnapped as children and put into the group’s experimental program. Now, he just knows his first name is Luke and that he has been modified with brain implants. In an effort to protect himself, he wiped his memory clean. After he escapes his captors, he needs to get his memory back but it won’t be easy. Daniela “Dani” LaSalle is a nurse who grew up in group homes and on the streets, having but one friend, Naldo. Suddenly, after six years, he shows up on her doorstep with a gaping knife wound and a secret. As she tries to help him, a small metal container falls from the wound and in his dying breath, he asks her to help someone named Ivy and warns her that he has put her life in danger. Luke followed Naldo to Dani’s house knowing the capsule held important information and he needs to get it. But he’s not the only one. Sparks fly when Luke meets Dani, at first complicating his mission but he soon realizes she’s more than just sexy, she’s smart as well and he needs her help. What follows is an intense, action-filled story you won’t forget. All of Shannon McKenna’s books are well written and keep the reader’s attention throughout. This series has a little of everything to make it a great read. Lots of action, well defined characters, a touch of sci-fi/paranormal and an intriguing storyline. My only issue, and maybe it’s just me, but with so many characters, I get confused about who the bad guys are and who the good guys are. I have to make sure to highlight some names so I can go back and check to see how they fit into the story. I’ve been a fan of Shannon McKenna’s work since the McCloud Brothers days when I fell in love with Seth. I highly recommend reading In My Skin as well as all her previous books. 4.5 stars

Another great read. I was hesitant when I first started reading this series but was pleasantly surprised how addicting it became. Now I’m saddened by finishing the third book. Please keep on writing as I can’t wait for your next book!!!

I have read all her books love the writing style. And the stories are well written, this book was no exception. I was waiting for Luke’s story and she didn’t disappoint us, now we need the rest.

The wait is finally over for the next installment in Shannon McKenna’s amazing Obsidian Files series! In My Skin is Luke’s story—at long last. Once again, McKenna does an amazing job of melding nonstop pulse-pounding suspense with some of the hottest love scenes out there. Her world of enhanced supersoldiers, ruthless corporate malfeasance, and cutting edge bio-technology/medical interfacing parallels real-world headlines in frighteningly coincidental ways. Luke has escaped Obsidian, but his memories are trapped behind a self-imposed wall. He’s on the run, trying to stay alive long enough to stop a shipment of hazardous technology—and reclaim his identity. His latest lead takes him to nurse Dani LaSalle—unfortunately, his murderous opponents are close behind. He might have saved her life, but Dani’s having a hard time trusting the gorgeous injured intruder who ripped her from her home in the middle of the night...leaving an ever-growing stack of bodies in his wake. The patchwork family formed by the Midlands Research Facility escapees has been mourning Luke’s capture for months and isn’t sure if the latest intel means he’s free or dead. Their determination to stop Obsidian and find Zade’s twin puts them on a collision course with the killers who are after Luke and Dani. Saving the world means making sacrifices, and this page-turner will keep you wondering if any of the Midlanders will live long enough for a joyful reunion. McKenna does a marvelous job of continuing the storylines of the heroes and heroines from the earlier Obsidian File books in the tightly woven action of her ongoing series plot. You’ll fall in love with her characters, heat up with the steamy sex, and be mesmerized by the complex world she creates. The best thing about the latest Shannon McKenna book going on sale? You know that means she’s already hard at work on the next one!

In My Skin is a powerful, action-packed book that will keep you at the edge of your sit. Luke is a super soldier, with brain implants and lots of habilities, but to protect those he loves, he had to burned and walled all of his memories and now he can’t get them back. Dani is a nurse. She lives a quiet life, sometimes lonely but content until his childhood friend comes crashing through her door, dying and puts her in danger. When Luke sees Dani, he’s determined to protect her, even when that can cost him his life. In My Skin is the third book in the series and they have to be read in order to fully understand the story. This picks up a bit after the last book. Luke is such a great character! He’s a big protective guy, sometimes a bit overwhelming but he always tries to keep Dani safe and happy. Even when is not easy. Dani surprised me. She’s strong and resilient. All the things she discovers during this book, and everything she goes through and she stills keep going. The chemestry between the two main characters is off the charts! They can burn up the pages in an instant and I think the fast phisical connection with the slower emotional one was a great combo. The action never stops. Luke and Dani are running from page one and the author manages to keep the reader ingaged and interested in everything while wondering if they will make it. In My Skin is a great addition to the series, we get more glimpses at the group and how they work together, we lear more of their past and see what they are fighting against. I really enjoyed the look we got at the slave soldiers and I can’t wait to see what happens next!

OMG, this series. Kick-butt romantic suspense mixed with like whoa chemistry between characters who it's impossible not to fall for--I seriously hope Ms. McKenna continues with this series all the way through to Ivy's story (and since she's still clutching stuffed cats and watching cartoons, that'll give us a while to go... ;)) In My Skin is the third book in the series--Luke's story; Zade's brother (from My Next Breath --where his main goal was finding his brother again)--and though the focus here is on Luke and Dani, Zade and the others end up playing fairly big roles too. I wouldn't start with this one but since I have read Zade's book I did just fine. A bunch of the science-y stuff and Obsidian/Manticore drama still felt a bit over my head, but honestly, that could likely still be the case after I read book one, so I didn't sweat it much. The suspense, the danger, and the characters are what draw me in, and they're all here in spades. I'm not even sure I was breathing for a few chapters there toward the end! I loved, loved, loved Dani and Luke--even when they were about to make bad choices, Ms. McKenna made me believe they were making them from a good place. Their we-can't-control-ourselves-because-we're-so-sexy tendencies were a teensy bit over the top, but it's hard to argue with the results. I did love that Dani was able to hold her own (mostly) among some super-scary modded-out dudes (and one dudette) and that it was up to the non-super soldiers to do some of the heavy lifting at the end of the story. Please, please tell me that Zoe and Asa get a story soon? Please? So if you like romantic suspense and super-sexy super soldiers sound like they might be your catnip, definitely give this series a try. I wouldn't start with this one--there's a lot of catching up to do if you do--but I'm warning you right now, it'll be next to impossible not to immediately pick up Luke's book once you finish Zade's. (And no waiting almost a year for you! I'm jealous...it was torture!) Rating: 4 stars / A- I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

I was given ARC copy in exchange of my honest review. Shannon McKenna Obsidian Files series. My name is Luke because that is all I remember. Luke has been tortured and locked away for a year and can't remember anything, but he knows that he must stop Braxton's courier and get the capsule with the information. Daniela LaSalle is caught in the middle of a crazy unbelievable nightmare. How can this guy not know his name and say that he is trying to save her. Can Dani trust him or run. Luke just wants to remember if he has a family or not. Together on the run for their lives will they find love and the answers to who Luke is. Action and suspense

This Book, in true Shannon McKenna fashion, is amazing. Shannon is truly an amazing author, her writing is so good you get absorbed into the book, in the best way possible. Suspense, action, family, love and of course some heat thrown in there. While you can absolutely read this as a stand alone, it does make a bit more sense when read in the order of the series (which I highly reccomend, they are just as awesome too). The main characters are Luck and Dani (short for Daniela). Luke has a sort of forced amnesia and when he first meets Dani he is saving her life, which is exciting in itself the way Luke goes about it. From there the two work together to get Luke's memories back. This in itself is dangerous, not to mention the fact that there is a group of people trying to find and kill them. Oh and let's not forget they are trying to save a kidnapped little girl. Dani fights her feelings for Luke at first but Luke knows what he wants and definitely goes after Dani's heart. This book is my favorite so far in the Obsidian Files series, but knowing Shannon there is definatley more like this to come! Can't wait for the next installment!!!

This is a brilliant mix of science-fiction and very hot, romantic suspense and, although it is the third book in the series, it still works well as a standalone IMHO. The heroic supersoldier star of this story is Luke and, other than knowing he’s been genetically enhanced and had brain implants, that’s all the personal information he is certain about. He has escaped from a horrendous year in captivity and, to protect those he cares about from those who are after him, he has blocked his memories of them. Now, however, he needs to remember their details and quickly so he can protect those he loves ffom those seeking any advantage that will enable them to recapture and manipulate him. Daniela LaSalle is a nurse and is shocked when Naldo, someone she knew years ago but who disappeared, knocks on her door she discovers he has a serious, self-inflicted chest wound from removing a microchip implanted in his chest. Naldo gives her the microchip, a task and a warning that she is in deadly danger before, sadly, dying. When Luke crashes into her life, endeavouring to protect her, she really doesn’t trust him but the heat really is on! As the two learn to trust each other, they need to work together to thwart those attempting to capture them both despite the heat that between them escalates in this sultry romantic suspense. With well developed characters, a hot plot and so much more this is a well crafted page turner that kept me enthralled. I suspect anyone who enjoys romantic suspense, science fiction or a superb mix of these genres will also find this a highly entertaining read. I requested and was given a copy of this book with no obligation. This is my own, honest review after choosing to read it.

This thrilling and sexy series just keeps getting better and better! This book picks up with Luke on the run after his daring escape from his torturous capture. Being a super soldier, he was able to block his mind to stop Braxton from learning about the rest of his family. Unfortunately his memory is buried so deep he can't remember who he was protecting. As he works to find a way to bring his memory back, ER nurse Daniela gets caught in the middle. she unknowingly has something both Luke and the evil people at Obsidian all want. Now it's a race to stay alive as Luke convinces the courageous, sexy nurse to trust and help him get his memory back. I really loved how strong Daniela is, a true warrior in her own way and so perfect for Luke! I also loved the fun, witty banter between everyone, especially Asa and Zoe, I hope their book is next! Ms. McKenna is a genius at creating the best heart pounding stories with strong, alluring characters, the hottest love/sex scenes and the most evil villains! There are many twists and turns in this fast paced story that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The secondary characters are all fascinating as well, their banter is fun and their loyalty and support makes me want to know more about them all. This is a wonderful and exhilarating series and I can't wait for more!
