Shayna Renee's Spicy Reads

My name is Shayna Renee and reading is my passion. I can’t wait to escape reality and dive in to a passion filled love story! I own a Nook, Kindle, iPad, and way too many paperback books to count. I never find myself without a way to read a chapter here and there. My favorite type of book is one that can pull every type of emotion out of me. The uglier the cry I get from reading, the better! It all started when a friend of mine urged me to read a little book called Fifty Shades of Grey. Have you all heard of it? Yeah, I thought so. I found myself wanting to see what else was out there, what was so fascinating about this particular genre. On my journey, I discovered authors like J.R. Ward, Shayla Black, Sylvia Day, and Sylvain Reynard and I was just hooked! After reading these fabulous books for a while, I discovered I really had no one close by to share my thoughts with. That’s when I decided to start a blog; a review blog that could help me get my thoughts out there and in turn get other people’s recommendations and opinions. I absolutely LOVE the authors and romance readers I have met through this journey, and I only hope to continue sharing my adoration of books with you!

Bayon & Jean-Baptiste (Bayou Heat #3-4)

Bayon & Jean-Baptiste (Bayou Heat #3-4) - Alexandra Ivy,  Laura Wright Let me tell you what....GREAT things happen when these two authors get together!

Bayon's story brings us right back to what happens after the HUNT and the attack on Ashe and her child, so you don't miss a beat. I love it when a book sucks you right in at the very beginning.This story was a thrill ride all the way through. There were bouts of incredible sex that made you blush, and heartwarming tenderness between the characters as well as the sheets *winks* I enjoyed reading about BAYON very much. BAYON is a Pantera Hunter. He is a warrior that protects his people from whoever or whatever threatens them. We see that side of him throughout this story, but we also see his playful, tender side as well.

"I may not be a virgin, but -"
"Understatement of the century."

I can't say much more without giving spoilers, so let me just say, this series gets better and better!Even though it is a shorter story than most, it is still packed with fun, exciting, sexy adventures that you only expect from amazing authors that know how to write Paranormal Romance!

No offense to Parish, but "Mr. Baptiste" is now my FAVORITE Pantera! This sexy, bad-assed, no holds barred cat had me hooked from the beginning. I was very surprised to find out he was a Nurturer. Although, throughout the story you get to learn how incredibly smart Jean-Baptiste is, so I guess I can't be too shocked.

"Trying to keep my cat caged here, and it's not your biggest fan right now."

Tensions are high in this one. Everyone is on edge and wants to find a way to help Ashe and her baby. When Jean-Baptiste is "ordered" by Raphael to go find the person who could possibly help Ashe, he gets pissed when he finds out he has to have a babysitter along the ride....enter the overly controlled, focused, determined puma - Genevieve Burel or "Miss Burel." Sexual tensions are at an all time HIGH with these two characters and I LOVED it. She knows just what to say to push his cat over the edge, and yet, she knows just what to say to put his cat at peace. The back and forth between these two made me laugh. Insults were thrown, first impressions were tossed out the window, and scorching, sizzling, sensual (okay I'll have to go to the thesaurus for more) SEX was had on dining room tables!

"You, Miss Burel, are the sweetest, most tempting thing I've ever had on my tongue."

Ok, time to go take a cold shower! Before I go, please, please, please start this series if you haven't yet. It will pull you in to a world full of magic, insanely hot men, and extreme sexual tension!
