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!

Surrender My Love

Surrender My Love - Lisa Eugene ❖ 2 1/2 Stars ❖

Surrender My Love was my first read from Lisa Eugene. It's part of the Washington Memorial Hospital series, but can be read as a standalone. I thought this book had great elements with not great follow through. It was a little hard to get through at first, kinda slow-paced, but once it started picking up speed, I was fully engaged. I really enjoyed the whole murder mystery aspect of it. It was definitely suspenseful, but the chemistry (which I believe is one of the most important pieces in a romance) between the two main characters was just not there for me. Don't get me wrong Doctor Brad Markson can take my temperature any day, he was dominant, sexy, demanding, all traits that I look for in a leading man, but I didn't feel the love or the angst when him and Chloe were together.

Surrender My Love was a good story, but lacking in some areas. I can recommend this if all you are looking for is hot, steamy sex. But if you are looking for a true romance kind of deal, I'm not 100% sure you will be satisfied here.
