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!

Cyrus (Men of Steel, #2)

Cyrus (Men of Steel, #2) - M.J. Fields Cyrus by M.J. Fields had me extremely confused at the beginning, and I believe some of that contributes to the fact that maybe this is not a standalone. Characters were in and out, with no background at all. I couldn't follow some of the events that took place, because the topic changes were so frequent. There were times when some of the wording confused me a bit. When it was Cyrus' POV there seemed to be a lot of rambling and ranting going on, which added to my initial confusion. I read a lot of romances where the hero is a bad ass, womanizing, douche bag, but he eventually redeems himself in the end and I fall in love with his character. With Cyrus, I didn't get the end game with him. I didn't fall in love, which was sad because of how he helped out his Birdie. I just didn't get the fluttering in my stomach when there was interaction between the main characters.

I liked the storyline. It was heartbreaking and emotional, but again, it didn't stay with me all the way through. I feel like this author's style of writing has potential, but I can't recommend this book.
