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!

Roadside Service

Roadside Service - B.L. Wilde I have to be honest with you all, when I first read the synopsis, I thought to myself, Oh god, I hope this isn’t too cheesy. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised with Roadside Service by B.L. Wilde. There was a pretty hot story buried in this one!

“You, Violet, have so much light in you. I’ve never felt so alive before and I know it’s because of you.”

I was a big fan of the sexy mechanic Blake! I know this is a short story, but I did want to know more about his background. Blake was a genuine character, and I enjoyed him very much. It was sad when Blake realized that he wouldn’t fit in to Violet’s life, it was heartbreaking actually.

“I’ll never let you lose yourself, Beautiful. You’ll always have a home in me.”

You could feel the emotions coming off of the characters. With Violet, I believe that she felt like she could be herself around Blake and not have to impress him like she does with other people. When you have that freedom with someone it is very hard to leave that behind. Not only were the sex scenes sizzling in this book, but the ending was like a fantasy, beautiful and romantic. B.L. Wilde is definitely on my watch list!
