(Possibly a duplicate of Preference for adding epub to iBooks)

Is it possible to use iBooks on Mavericks to open an ePub without adding it to the library?

Possibly through defaults?

(defaults read -app iBooks spits out

    Not an answer to your question , but you could avoid iBooks and use, for example, Clearview to read epubs. – Gilby May 7 '14 at 0:21
