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!

The Arrangement

The Arrangement - Cleo Taurus *4 1/2 Stars*

"He wanted her love, her body, mind, and soul."

The Arrangement by Cleo Taurus is a story about an unlikely pair, both with pasts they would like to forget, find that without knowing it, they can heal each other and make each other whole again. This is a story of heartbreak turned to passion, sorrow turned to happiness, and lust turned to love. I bet you will not make it through this story without shedding any tears. God knows I certainly needed a few tissues with this one.

"She actually stopped breathing for a moment, the endless seconds that her body was no longer her own, but fully under his command."

Us romance readers are all to familiar with two "perfect" people finding their way to each other and living happily ever after. What happens when you have two imperfect people that end up finding each other? PERFECTION! When you read what Maggie and Master Joe both went through before they found each other, it will completely break your heart. It's so incredibly sad, and yet so real, their circumstances could happen to anyone. I think that's why I found myself wiping tears from my eyes, because Cleo has you connecting with these characters on some deep level, that you can't help but feel for them, fell the sadness from the past, feel the love and adoration from just touching each other. I gotta say, I love an emotional read, and this one takes the cake! Beautiful, heartwarming, sensual story. A BIG Thank You to the author for taking me on a passion filled, emotional ride!

"All I care about, all I want is you."
