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!

Temporary Bliss

Temporary Bliss - B.J. Harvey Temporary Bliss by BJ Harvey was an incredibly sexy, hilarious, emotional read. The characters were amazing. I mean every single ridiculously funny character! Mac is a chick that I definitely want to party with. Especially if she can introduce me to her three hot "friends," Noah, Sean, and Zander.

"Everything he gave me was everything I never knew I wanted."

Makenna Lewis is a character that I could relate too on every level, commitment phobia included! God, what I would give to have a set-up like she did in the beginning. You have Noah, a doctor that she works with. Hello! Easy access "on-call room STAT!" Next is Sean, or Mr. Dom, dark and commanding, he could tie me up anytime, that's for sure! Last, but certainly not least, we have Zander, stripper extraordinaire. I'm sorry, I think that's all I have to say is he's a freakin' stripper! How fucking lucky can one girl get?!

Even though Makenna has her hands full with these men, nothing can compare to her Superman, her Delicious Daniel. Daniel is intense, and I love that in a male character. He is exactly what Makenna needs. He is the only one that can tame her, break down her walls, and help her move on from her horrible past. They are the perfect combination. This book sucked me in and kept me captivated from the first chapter. The beginning was difficult and emotional for me, I mean the shit that Makenna went through with her high school sweetheart, just broke my heart. No one deserves that. After reading the beginning you can definitely see why Mac is the way she is. She hides behind her humor, she is protecting her heart by staying away from commitments, and I don't blame her. Her heart hides behind a brick wall, until her Superman can break through and heal it.

"You're my forever girl. My Lois Lane. You always have been, and if I have my way, you always will be."

This is my first read from BJ Harvey, and I am completely impressed. I can't wait to read more by this very talented author!
