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!

Revealing Us (Inside Out Trilogy)

Revealing Us - Lisa Renee Jones " I am home. I'm home because I'm with him. And I kiss him as if I will never kiss him again, as if I'm dying of thirst and he is all that can quench me. And I believe he is. He has always been the answer to the question of what was missing from my life, even before I met him. "

Lisa Renee Jones has once again took me on a deliciously naughty thrill ride in her third installment of the Inside Out Trilogy - Revealing Us. This was one of my most anticipated books of 2013 and it did not disappoint. With more surprises and secrets revealed, I was taken on a rollercoaster ride full of too many emotions to count. Having read the entire series, and being witness to the growth of this beautiful relationship, as well as the growth of the individuals was an AMAZING journey! I can't say enough excellent things about this book or the series in general. Bravo Lisa, Bravo!

" I revel in my ability to make this amazing man, this beautiful, seemingly always in-control man, lose himself to passion and I gladly obey his command. I ride him and the fantasy that I never seem to make reality, but he does. The one called control. "

The thing I love most about these books is the depth of emotions that I feel while being immersed in to this world of love, lust, and mystery. From the very beginning of this series I feel like I have been put through the ringer. I feel exhausted emotionally, because the author put so much heart and soul in to these characters and made them so real for the readers, you can't help but to constantly want to go back and fix things for them. They have become a part of your family and all you want is for them to be happy. In Revealing Us, even more secrets are revealed, and yep you guessed it, even more questions are raised. I fell IN LOVE with Chris even more, if that's even possible! He is a tortured soul that you just want to reach in the book and give him a big hug! (Well...maybe more than a hug, if you know what I mean.) In Revealing Us, there are new characters introduced and new secrets to unravel, but when you get down to it, this is a genuine, freaking amazing LOVE STORY. It's not perfect, which is great, because it allows readers to relate to certain situations, but it's Chris and Sara's love story and it's a story that keeps you on your toes as well as makes your heart beat out of your chest. I HAVE GOT TO ADD that in between all of the secret keeping and emotional struggles there are some pretty damn HOT sex scenes in Revealing Us, including but not limited to, a sexy elevator scene and some scorching 69 action! Anytime Chris Merit is in full on DOM MODE, he can do pretty much anything he wants to me! *WINKS*

" This is my fear. The moment when, once again, you shut me out and I'm alone. If you were going to leave me alone, you should have walked away before now, when I still knew how to breathe without you. "

Intense, riveting, and beautiful, the INSIDE OUT series is in a class of its own. Not only is it an emotional thrill ride, but it's an all-consuming, nail-biting, powerfully written story that will leave you wanting more. This is one of those rare series that keeps you thinking about the stories long after you have finished reading them. Revealing Us and the rest of the series including Rebecca's Journals are ALL MUST READS, and MUST be read in order! Seriously people DO NOT STRAY from the reading order! I was so HAPPY to hear that this isn't the end for all of these wonderful characters and I simply CANNOT wait for what Lisa Renee Jones has in store for us avid INSIDE OUT readers!
