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!

Depth Charge: Mercy, Monroe (Depth Charge, #2)

Depth Charge: Mercy, Monroe (Depth Charge, #2) - Brindle Chase Guest Review by Monica of Shayna Renee's Spicy Reads

Rick Weaver is an ex-military man working now as a diver. The company that he works for TCI Treasure Chest Incorporated is hired to bring up a sunken submarine. Rick has been brought in to find out who is sabotaging the efforts.

Enter Miss Monroe Dawson, she seems to be the culprit, she is not at all what Rick is expecting to find. She is a girl and one that stirs his heart a flutter at first glance. Monroe is working on her dissertation in marine biology and she has found out that an extinct variety of sea urchins have been inhabiting this sunken sub. She feels very strongly that stopping the recovery of the submarine and thus saving these creatures is the correct and honorable thing to do. She is a sneaky little thing and has done quite well in delaying the expedition until Rick comes along. Fortunately for TCI and unfortunately for Monroe, Rick is quick to discover her. The sparks quickly fly between the two of them both professionally and personally. The sexual tension is palpable. They seem to be on opposite sides but their attraction to each other is off the charts.

This was a really quick read with an interesting and different story line. It was really well done and had all the parts that a good book needs. Intense attraction between the two main character who of course share some funky and intense sex scenes. There was conflicts and resolutions. The story was well-played out and the ending was quite satisfactory. For a short story with a unique story line it certainly managed to keep my attention and interest until the end.

Very well done for this little romance with some intrigue and suspense thrown in. A definite 4/5.
