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!

Hold Me Together

Hold Me Together - Felice Fox This was a short read that just didn't hold my interest. There were some well-written parts, but as a whole it was lacking something for me. From start to end, there were times I was just all out confused. I'm all about reading kinky stories, but one woman with multiple brothers, was a bit much for me. Gavin and Holly just became husband and wife, I mean it is their WEDDING NIGHT, and Gavin decides this is a good idea to tie Holly down and make her listen to him talk about screwing his other brothers, because that is just how they are, and it works for them?

Holly was a character that I didn't like at all. When this was sprung on her, she could have walked away, it would have been hard because she was in love with Gavin, but she would have survived. Instead, she goes back and forth on the idea. She hates it, it's ridiculous, it's horrible. All of a sudden, she turns around and starts falling for his brothers in different ways. It just racked my brain.

I wanted to love this story. I really did. I love sexy, kinky cowboys any day of the week, but this one just didn't do it for me.
