Blog Tour + Review: Shuttered Affections by Rene Folsom

Title: Shuttered Affections
Author: Rene Folsom
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Publication Date: October 15, 2013

After escaping to a college town, Juliana Petersen was determined to put her troubled past behind her and make the most of life. She was satisfied with her current situation, or so she thought. It wasn’t until the day her new photography professor stole her parking spot that she realized there was such thing as lust at first sight. Now, she must struggle with the decision to break the rules and fall in love, or step back and let the chance of a lifetime pass her by—all while her past relationships come back to haunt her.

How many men will it take to break Julia’s hold on reality?

Warning: This novel contains sexual situations and is meant for adult readers ages 18 and up.

Our Review:
4 Stars
Shuttered affections, I started off confused with the name of the book I didn't understand the title but I kept an open mind. Once I realized it was a sexy student teacher romance I couldn't wait to get to it.
Juliana is driving around a packed parking lot trying to find parking. She finally manages to find a spot when some jerk in a tiny car steals it and just shrugs her off when she yells at him. No way could she have imagined that the good looking jerk and her would soon meet again. After driving around again she finds a new spot but she is now late for class. She walks in to class only to realize that the jerk who stole her parking spot is standing in front of her class scolding her for being late. At this point I could practically see the sparks flying and I could feel the sexual tension between these two.

Aiden is the replacing Juliana's photography professor, yes ladies we have a hot new professor who might be "double" the trouble. Right from the get go we can see the attraction he and Juliana feel towards each other although they both know it is wrong they can't help the need they have to be around each other. Both characters have deep dark secrets that could ruin the relation they are building. Once their secrets are reviled all that's left is for Aiden to help Juliana heal, or so we think. Juliana's past is still chasing her and not only threatening her but all the ones she loves.

I can't wait to see what will happen in book 2 of the Cornerstone series thankfully that will be my next book.

Meet the Author:

She has officially diagnosed herself with creative ADD and, if it weren't for her day job as a web programmer, she would have a million and one writing projects going at once. In addition to web design, she is also a graphic artist who loves to create custom book cover designs for indie authors. She is definitely an artist at heart and would love nothing more than to be elbow deep in clay during her waking hours.Rene believes that all fiction is based on some form of reality—otherwise we would never have the inspiration or knowledge to dream up the realistic situations we portray with our words. She is proud to say that her personal experiences have been inspirational, though perhaps not always identical to that of her fictional characters. Where reality and fantasy diverge, however, must remain her little secret…
