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!

Monica, the unbelievable conclusion to Jonathan and Monica’s beautiful, gut wrenching, emotionally charged story. I feel like whatever I say in this review will not do this group of fantastic stories justice. CD Reiss is a brand spankin’ new author to me, and my god I am SO freakin’ ecstatic that I found her. I was referred to her by another fantastic author and whenever I meet her, I’m gonna hug the hell out of her. Thank you Eva ♥

“She was mine to lose, but she was mine.”

When I first started this series, I couldn’t stop. I literally did not stop until I finished with SING. I stayed up all night, reading how these two wonderful people met, the struggles they went through, the pasts they had to overcome, the incredibly intense feelings they had towards one another. It broke me down, punched me in the gut, lifted me up, and put me back together. I feel like I was holding my breath the entire time, just waiting and wondering about what would happen next. When I finished SING, I was satisfied, content, and overwhelmed. When I heard that CD Reiss was coming out with Monica, I freaked the fuck out! I wanted more! I always will want more of Jonathan. I don’t want to give anything away for those of you who haven’t started this yet (shame on you, by the way) :) Jonathan and Monica have been through so much, and the latest incident left Jonathan with something that isn’t truly his, he feels like he is not 100% himself now, and he is struggling with love and dominance. Though she doesn’t say it aloud, Monica feels something is missing, she misses her king, and her internal struggles are making her distant. Realizing that he can’t keep on like this, Jonathan makes a decision, and takes action, and let’s just say……Welcome back our king!

Beautiful! Beautiful! Beautiful! I’m so jealous! I want a love like Monica and Jonathan have. A love that can withstand anything. It’s intense, it’s emotional, it’s fierce. It’s theirs. This entire series will be a re-read for sure. I urge you all to start their journey, you will not be disappointed at all.
