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!

Jungle Inferno (Phoenix Agency, Book One)

Jungle Inferno - Desiree Holt "For Faith and Mark, the telepathic connection they'd shared for years was nothing compared to the scorching physical connection they realized as adults. From the first moment they came together, "erotic" was too pale a word to describe their relationship. Together they explored each other's deepest, darkest desires.

But now Mark, survivor of an ambush to his Delta Force team, is a prisoner of a terrorist group in the Peruvian jungle, and his telepathic communication with Faith is his only contact with the world. While she searches for help to save him, they survive on dreams that take them beyond all sexual boundaries."

What would it be like to send telepathic messages to the man of your dreams? Well, what if that man was a sexy, military, alpha male named Mark Halloran? I would say, "Sign me up!" Jungle Inferno is Book One in Desiree Holt's scorching Phoenix Agency series. This took me two nights to finish and the pages would not turn fast enough for me. My heart was pounding with every page. This story is action packed, filled with chills, and oh so sexy thrills! I really had a hard time putting it down, but hey, a girl does have to sleep right?

Mark and Faith found out at a young age that they could speak to each other telepathically. This connection only brought them closer and closer together, until life got in the way. Mark was always away on missions and Faith was a well known author busy with her new career. The few times they did find their way back to each other, it was EXPLOSIVE! All throughout this book we are treated with flashbacks of the naughty kind *smirks* These flashbacks were hot, sweet, sensual, romantic, oh and did I mention HOT! Ms Holt NEVER disappoints in that particular area.

When Mark is captured and held prisoner in the middle of the jungle, his communication with Faith is the only think keeping him alive. Cue the sexy, erotic flashbacks! Faith has some experience with research with her writing political reads, so she starts her journey to find help to reunite her with the other half of her heart.

I want to thank Desiree Holt for bringing this beautiful, terrific series in to our hearts, and for bringing all her characters to life in our minds so we can stand up and pump our fists in the air and cheer for the good guys!
