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!

Clover - Braxton Cole Clover was my first read from Braxton Cole and it was one of the sweetest reads that I have read in a very long time. The story of Clover and Jake was heart warming, beautiful, and just plain romantic! I couldn't stop smiling throughout the entire thing.

"Clover's lips tasted like forever, like she was the only certain thing in his life, and he kissed her greedily. He wanted to consume every last bit of her."

I enjoyed how this book takes us on a journey of past and present. I feel like adding that aspect in the story gave us a true sense of how Jake's love for Clover was imminent, and even though Jake was younger than Clover, they were always there for each other. Jake wasn't only Clover's brother's friend, but her friend as well. When Clover came back into town and saw Jake all grown up, that friendship came back as well as a little something extra that eventually grew in to the purest of True Love. Reading Clover by Braxton Cole was like taking a breath of fresh air. It is out of the norm of what I usually crave as an avid romance reader, but I enjoyed this very much and will look forward to more great things from this author.
