3 to 3.5 Hot Alpha Barking For His Woman Stars * * * 1/2

Lori Leigh doesn't mess around. She is a "what you see... what you need... is what you get" author. You want hot, dominant, Alpha Navy Seal... she's got it. You want a girl who has been pining for him since she was 17... she has that, too. You want him to have always know this girl was his... always known he would claim her... yup.. Lori has that for you and more. Because Lori Leigh has all of these elements down to a science.

Renos Chance es el primer libro de la serie Tempting Seals y narra la historia de Raven y Reno.
Fue una lectura entretenida, ligera y corta, justo lo que buscaba en este momento, quizas eche de menos mas profundidad en la historia, pero fue precisamente por eso que elegi Renos Chance, ya que queria algo light y sin mucho drama, solo un libro corto para pasar un par de horas, eso si, no esperes una gran lectura pero si quieres una historia sexy y divertida, estoy segura de que disfrutaras leyendol
****** 3 to 3.5 Stars ******

Short, sexy and sweet. Not enough time to get to know the characters or their history, but nonetheless it was good! I read another book by this lovely author called The One, which had a little more angst and build up therefore making me love it more. One things for sure, Lora Leigh can sure write smexy time well!
4 stars!!

Well, this is a novella. But... I. DO. NOT. HAVE. REGRET!!!
I chose to love the sex.
The story is mediocre. It's about our heroine, Raven is secretly admire her best friend' brother. Hmm... It turns out the hero, Reno is fuckable enough and in a few years later, both of them lusting each other. BAM!

I'm not sorry. Yes he is. And, thanks to my friend for her picture about who should be playing to be our Reno. No shit i got so wet. LOL

So i'm enjoying the sexy side. Not quite the story
I'm a big fan of Lora Leigh and I've read time and time some of her books.
She always manages to capture my attention and hook me in with a romance or a plot that twists up my imagination.
Her male characters are always alpha and big, brooding, delicious, and I could be here all night writing adjectives and not get tired of it.
On the other hand, her female characters are sexy, strong, and always driving the male species out of their mind.
What I most like about her romance is the intense feelings t

This was a delicious little snippet of erotic romantic fun! I haven't looked to far ahead but I think this is the beginning of a series, maybe? Anyway who doesn't love Navy Seal boys.
I am looking forward to more, especially because this was just a novella, so literally just whet my appetite.
Reno and Ravens story was very sweet, with the whole, known each other and being drawn to each other all there lives thing.
I loved that Reno deliberately waited for Raven because of the age difference, and by

La historia es sexo de principio a fin. Hubo algunos azotes de parte él que toleré porque estaba atrapada en la historia, porque la verdad es que no tolero ni consiento este tipo de escenas en las novelas, sin embargo aquí fue muy leve. Creo que este es un comienzo flojo para la serie, no obstante, pienso seguir con las otras historias solo porque la serie Fuerzas Especiales, que ya leí, me a parecido preciosa. Así que tengo la esperanza de encontrar grandes historias en las novelas siguientes. ...more

Recommends it for: fans of the series
Pages of Hot sex, then pages of hotter sex, a few paragraphs of conversation, more sex, kinky sex, then sex.

I guess that about sums up the whole story. There was a very poor excuse of a plot. There was a very poor excuse of a setting. The characters had deep motivations that the author shared with us, but there was no emotional character growth on the hero's part, and about a paragraph of it for the heroine.

Top it off with poor editing, and I wonder why these have been a must-buy for me.

This was a very good story. The story was hot and sweet and I liked Reno and Raven.

Raven has been in love with Reno since she was a kid. He's her best friend's big brother and her big brother's best friend. She's aware that he wants he but tries to push him away because he's a Navy SEAL. Her father was in the armed forces and it caused issues between him and her mother and he ended up dying in the line of duty. Because of this she's determined she can't get involved with Reno.

Reno let Rav
Raven has been craving Morganna's brother Reno, since she was little. The chance to be with him was never an option due to their age difference and Reno only seeing Raven as his little sisters best friend. Now, they're both adults and Renos back home from duty and neither have attachments to anyone else.

Alright, this is the 2nd book I've read by this author and I must say from what I've read so far, not a fan. I'm giving it 2 stars and it's only because of the naughtiness the book entails, which

Lora Leigh descrive le scene di sesso con la consueta bravura: sul divano, sul letto, nella doccia (i tre grandi classici, che non possono mancare); con lei sbattuta al muro (primo optional); le altre “location” non me le ricordo, ma poco male. Il titolo, infatti, recita “78 pagine di sesso”. Poco più di un racconto, non ancora un romanzo breve, questa storiella me la sono gustata -fra qualche risata, dai! ‘ste mutandine perennemente zuppe…- alle 4:00 del mattino (così imparo a andare a letto al ...more

Pues.. me parecio aburrido.. no tuvo accion fuera de la cama.. y bueno.. no considero un buen libro si no tienen una buena parte de accion de fondo.. o por lo menos una gran historia con unos cuantos conflictos que los lleven despues a la cama :p..
Este libro trata sobretodo de los problemas que tiene ella acepando que el es un Seal y que puede no regresar de alguna mision.. y como se compara con su madre que paso por eso y por lo cual ella no quiere una relacion con el.. aunque es mas que obvio

This is a short that comes before the Navy SEAL's series. From the first, I've wanted Reno and Raven's story and here it is.

More hot than story but enough character to keep me reading. I do wish there was more to it since both characters play so heavy in the novels that follow. One thing Leigh does well is erotica and this certianly doesn't disappoint in that area. If you want to read hot sex, this is a great story for it. If you want a good love story, this isn't it. There isn't enough story to

Not much of a story amidst all the sex. Raven (another of LL's kinky virgins) has loved Reno all her life, but struggles to accept that he is a Seal who lives a life of danger. After waiting years for Raven to mature (shoulda waited several years longer based on her behavior in the story), Reno has decided to stake his claim. Not much of either's actions makes a whole lot of sense. After a bunch of sex scenes, there are a couple of fast forwards in the relationship and the kids are happily ever ...more

I love Lora Leighs Navy Seals books, but this is just a novella, which I am not a huge fan of, but I have always wanted to know Reno and Ravens story, and got this cheap. I just felt as though I was getting into their story, when it was over, but that is novellas for you, give me a thicker book any day. I did enjoy their story though, but am only giving it three stars, as there was no real drama to it.

Aside from the sex scenes, this entire book consists of Raven attempting to convince herself that she can't/shouldn't be with the man she loves. The fact that he loves her back and pursues her mercilessly doesn't matter, she really feels the need to torture them both anyway.

I loved Reno! He's the kind of guy that makes a gal know, like awwww. And also like OH! Good short read - classic Lora Leigh.

This short was actually read in Taken

He's two things she doesn't want...a career military man and her best friend's brother.

Una lettura intensa, appassionante e molto divertente in alcuni punti, l'unica pecca è che è troppo corto. La Leigh però non mi ha deluso minimamente.

Reno’s Chance
Author: Lora Leigh
Review by: Karen Merrill
September 12, 2016
Well if you’re looking for a love story with lots of hot, steamy sex scenes, this is the book for you. Raven has been in love with Reno since she was a child and although he had feeling for her he knew he was too old for her at the time. He went off and joined the navy SEALS and has returned home on furlough knowing that Raven is now old enough to make his move, and to claim her as his.

I was looking for another military book to read and another blogger suggested Lora Leigh's Tempting Seals series to me. Where have I been all this time and why did I not try out any of Lora Leigh's books before? I freaking loved Reno's Chance and this was just a novella. I can't wait to get into the other books in the series. I had a hard time putting down my Kindle. In fact I read this novella, whenever I could sneak it in between books I had to review and

"L'incredibile amore che aveva sempre provato per questa donna superava l'opprimente lussuria. Era così tanto una parte di lui che non avrebbe mai potuto immaginare la vita senza di lei ora."

Non è un segreto che la Leigh non sia una delle mie autrici predilette... nei suoi libri trovo sempre troppo sesso e sovente uno sconfinamento tra erotismo e volgarità. Nonostante ciò, continuo a leggerla nella speranza di trovare IL titolo da quattro stelle (o forse è solo masochismo XD). Ciò che mi è piaci
