Shelter for Blythe is book 11 in the series but its a stand alone. However, we meet Blythe in Sophie's book. Blythe was homeless and living on the street near Sophie's place of employment. Blythe also plays a role in Milena's book; in a way, Blythe is helping the villain of Milena's book. Now, however, Blythe needs help. She is attacked on the streets. Squirrel, aka Sawyer, gave Blythe his phone months ago and they begin a few text conversations. This leads to a budding friendship that changes Blythe's life.
Sawyer is not like the other heroes from this series. He isn't a muscular, isn't as tall, isn't as 'manly' in his eyes. He is a bit self deprecating which was a bit odd. I'm not sure it was bad or good. Just different. Blythe's backstory is sad and fairly typically of many people who find themselves homeless. I thought Sawyer and Blythe were a good match for each other but overall, I felt the story was kind of flat. There isn't much danger or action; the plot mainly revolves around the relationship between Sawyer and Blythe. It wasn't bad, but it was a bit anticlimactic.
Bottom line: I liked the story and was glad to finally get more info about Blythe, but overall it was a little slow.
