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!


Make sure you connect with me on Goodreads, Facebook, and Twitter!

Twice Tempted: A Night Prince Novel

Twice Tempted - Jeaniene Frost Vlad I have missed you so! I've missed your dominating, ruthless, protective ways. I have to admit I wanted to hurt you a little bit in the first novel, and then a little bit more in the beginning of TWICE TEMPTED, but then you go all..

"As if I'd settle for anything less than making you completely mine, as soon as possible."

and my heart melts for you once again!

Leila is probably one of my all time favorite heroines. She is hilarious, witty, and takes no crap from anyone...especially the handsome, alpha male Vlad. In this installment you see how tough and strong she is when she stands up to vampires, ghouls, and even her scary family.

"Mission accomplished. The stench might have actually killed my new appetite. If Hell could fart, it would smell like this."

Vlad and Lelia's relationship is very rocky (to say the least) at the beginning, but they have such great chemistry and they complement each other so well. Oh, and did I mention, the sexual tension between the two always make me smile.

"When I tie you up, I'll use silk, and I'll leave your hands free because I love to feel them on my skin."

Jeaniene Frost is one of my favorite authors in the paranormal genre, first with the Night Huntress Series, the Night Huntress World Series, and now the fantastic Night Prince novels. I love how all the characters intertwine and we always get appearances from some of our favorites. In TWICE TEMPTED, loyalties are tested, hearts are broken, and lives are changed forever. You will NOT want to set this book down.

Favorite heart melting VLAD quote:

"How often must I tell you that you mean more to me than vengeance? I can live without defeating my enemies, but I cannot live without you."
