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!

Bloodweight (Underdogs of the Arena)

Bloodweight (Underdogs of the Arena) - Eva LeNoir 4 1/2 Stars!

Sexy, Intense, Paranormal Novella! I'm not usually a fan of short stories, but I completely enjoyed Bloodweight! This is book 1 in the Underdogs of the Arena Series, and Eva pulled out all the stops - great character development, sexy and intense plot, hot and heavy sex scenes! Who couldn't ask for more?

"Fight with your fists, win with your heart."

Ellen Banks is a feisty, witty, young vampire, who won't let anyone get in her way of getting what she wants, and she wants the championship. She never wants to be owned by anyone, or anything and she will kick anyone's ass who thinks differently.

"Here I am, almost dying and you're thinking about sex? Classy."

Nash Stanford, the incredibly mouth-watering, sexy vampire sire who runs these fights wants one thing, and one thing only....a great investment, but is that all he sees when he looks at the spirited, tough vampire?

This novella is full of kick ass fighting, steamy sex, quick witted banter, and even some heartfelt moments. Even though this is a short story, it is action packed and will certainly satisfy your paranormal cravings, as it did mine.

This is my first read from the great Eva LeNoir, and I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next.
