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!

Their Second Chance

Their Second Chance - April Angel Their Second Chance by April Angel is a great contemporary romance that will warm your heart and soul. For those of you who are struggling through a relationship or marriage, this story will be a great lesson learning experience. For those of you who are looking for your soul mate, this will be incredibly inspirational to you.

❝ A lot of people will tell you that it hurts to be without the person you love, but the truth is, that it's like living with no purpose. Without her...I can't imagine my life without her. She's my soul, ❞

I love it when you get something a little different than what you expect from an author. It's refreshing, and it shows just how talented the author is with her diversity. I am used to her paranormal erotic romances under Milly Taiden and her other contemporary erotic stories with April Angel. No matter what genre this author writes in, they are always very solid, very sexy, and very emotionally driven.

Their Second Chance deals with real life relationship issues. A couple that has been married for seven years, together for 5 years, and something in their marriage just stopped working, they just stopped communicating. What would you do? Counseling? Separation? Divorce? After a time of separation, Ariana and Nick find themselves in quite the pickle. Forced together and in close quarters with nowhere to go, they rehash what went wrong in their marriage, bringing to light what unimaginable event happened to Ariana.

At the very beginning of this book, you feel right away Ariana's torment, the gut-wrenching sadness at the possibility of losing her husband and her best friend. This kind of emotion, the emotion that you feel deep inside, is what you will carry through till the end of their story. You will care for these two and will want nothing for the best, and I think that is because you can relate to them on such a level that you thought no one would understand. The undying love and the passion Ariana and Nick had for each other was beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time.

Their Second Chance is a very fitting title for this story. It's a story of hope, a story of passion, and a story that will stick with you for a very long time.

❝ Fall, sweetheart, I'll catch you. ❞
