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!

ConneXions - Isabella LaPearl This was a beautiful, sensual short tale of a woman's journey through her life, the good, the bad, and the wonderfully erotic. Sometimes I have a hard time with short stories, because I feel like they leave me half empty, but you definately get your fill with ConneXions.

I'm so excited that I was introduced to this author's work. She is an amazing writer who puts you in a place of wonderment and fascination. Not to mention the delightful erotic scenes throughout.

"Lost in passion. Unraveled and completely consumed by the fiery lust racing through my bloodstream, as you kept my hands immobile with one of yours wrapped around my wrists."

ConneXions is written in a way where you feel like you are right there with her every step of the way, whether you are in a public park, *smirks* private beach, or just standing outside in the middle of an afternoon storm. You get to feel the emotions, see the beautiful scenery, experience life as someone else, and just escape reality. If a short story can do that, then by god bring on the next!

"I have tried over the years not to dwell on things I cannot change or to have regrets."
