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 Demon’s Forbidden Passion by Zoey Williams was paranormal romance at it’s best! I mean, can you really go wrong when there is a GORGEOUS, charming, demon, firefighter in the mix? I don’t think so. God, I love paranormal romance! It has always been my favorite genre and it has been a while since I have read a really good paranormal and this just hit the spot.

“For the first time in his life, a fire had shaken him. But she had shaken him more.”

Instant Chemistry! If done right, it can be a FANTASTIC thing of beauty, and Zoey Williams made it happen between Tina and Ethan! The passion and desire between the two were off the charts and I LOVED it! Even though this was a novella, it was pretty well fully developed. It is amazing that an author can put so much in such a short story. I connected with the characters right away. With both of them having such broken pasts, I immediately sympathized with them, and then I rooted for them in the end. This had a great storyline with little bits of suspense that had me turning the pages faster and faster wondering and hoping what will happen next. The Demon’s Forbidden Passion had a great ending with a little AHA! moment. This was a great read with some VERY steamy scenes in it! If you like your stories with some HEAT, you will not be disappointed. I look forward to reading more from Zoey Williams.
