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!

Pulse (Collide, #2)

Pulse (Collide, #2) - Gail McHugh I am cursing myself because I started this series so late in the game. I kept telling myself, I'll get to it, I'll get to it! I don't think I go a day on Facebook or Twitter without someone declaring their love for the infamous Gavin Blake. I am now proud to say that I have happily jumped on that bandwagon. Hell, I am the leader of that bandwagon :)

I've done something I haven't done in a while, because this girl loves her sleep, but I read Collide and Pulse all in one night. I just couldn't stop. My night was filled with a bunch of, "Oh shit!" and "That son of a bitch!" and "You've got to be kidding me!" It was so much fun, and I wanted the story to go on and on. I read the reviews for Collide ahead of time and I knew there was going to be a major cliffhanger at the end of book 1, but even those reviews did not prepare me for what was ahead. I was so incredibly entranced in this story and these characters that nothing could have pulled me a way from starting right up with PULSE. I wouldn't have been able to sleep even if I tried. God forbid if I read Collide when it first came out and had to wait for Pulse. NO FREAKIN' WAY!

"He filled her. Claimed her. Broke and owned her. Brought her full circle from the woman she once was to the woman she was becoming."

Incredibly intense, sexy as hell, and so emotional it put me through the ringer, Collide and Pulse are definite MUST READS! And when I say must read, I mean MUST READ NOW! DO NOT put if off any longer, but be prepared, you will have the book hangover of your life!

"I want to break the rules with you. Kiss you passionately every day. Make you smile when you're about to cry. I want no regrets with us. I want us to laugh together until we can't breathe and it hurts. No man will ever love you the way I'm going to love you, Emily. You're it. My last. My forever."
