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!

Inky (The Leaves, #1) - J.B. Hartnett "I want to kiss you so much. I want to show you what a beautiful woman you are. I want to appreciate you for you but I don't want to add more pain to your life. Tell me what you want, Anika."

Wow! This was an amazing book! Fantastic start to The Leaves series! Amazing well rounded characters, a difficult but beautiful story line, and I could not set this book down for the life of me. There was a cliffhanger at the end, so make sure you have COLE, The Leaves, book 2 on hand, because you will want to jump right to the next story as soon as possible. This was my first read from J.B. Hartnett and it will definitely not be the last.
