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!

Wild Invitation: A Psy/Changeling Anthology

Wild Invitation - Nalini Singh I was a little hesitant on jumping up to purchase this book even though I am a HUGE fan of Nalini Singh. I'm not a fan of the short stories or novellas as they call it, but I am so glad I read it. Oh how I missed being transported to the Psy/Changeling world! This was a very quick read for me, I finished it in one night. If you are a follower of Nalini Singh's stories, you will NOT be disappointed.

Tammy and Nate have been two of my favorite characters in this series since the very beginning. I am so glad that this story was included. Nate is a DarkRiver Sentinel and Tamsyn was forced at a young age to become the DarkRiver Healer. Nathan doesn't think Tammy is ready for him yet, and Tammy is tired of Nate being so distant. This was an emotional one for me. I wanted to smack Nate upside the head a few times. Packed full of emotions and of course a lot of sexual tension, the only way Nalini Singh does it.

Ohhh Zach Quinn, how I love you! Sexy Leopard versus lonely school teacher. I loved this story so much. Zach goes to pick up his nephew from school and meets Annie, his nephew's school teacher and recognizes his mate immediately, but Annie is human so he has his work cut out for him, especially since Annie's mother wants only "academic types" for Annie. Don't underestimate Mr Quinn though. He is a pure Alpha male with A LOT of charming qualities. Beautiful chemistry between the two with quite a bit of humor tied in.

The SnowDancers are my favorite, mainly because of the sexy Alpha Hawke. This is about a very submissive wolf Grace, who is being pursued by the VERY alpha wolf Cooper. This was such a cute story, but it also had major sexual tension.

This was another one of my favorites! Walker Lauren is a sexy, sexy, oh did I mention sexy Psy. Lara is a SnowDancer healer. Their mating bond happens back in Kiss Of Snow. The newly mated pair have a lot of challenges between them, with Walker still hiding behind his silence and Lara trying to break down his shields. I loved having past characters pop up in this story as well as getting to know Walker a little more.
