**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.

Rene Folsom, author of paranormal romance and erotica, lives in Florida with her husband and three kids. 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…

This is the first book I've read by Rene Folsom and I'll be keeping a look out for the sequel.

It was a very easy read and had you wanting to know where it was going from the outset.

Julia is a likeable character, a feisty art major who falls hard and fast for her college professor.


“I was very eager to spend time with Aiden later that week, yet at the same time, I knew it was just going to lead me to heartache. But wouldn’t he be worth it?”

Aiden is hot for Julia at 1st sight, their natural inclination for art and photography ignites this desire further. He's super caring .....


“I’m glad. It sounds like you’re tired, Angel. You need to rest. Why don’t you try to get some sleep? I’ll hang up once I know you’re no longer awake.”

And hot to boot!


“I placed my hands on his shoulders and smiled down at him as he stared at my breasts.

With his hands on my hips, he slowly pulled me closer and sucked one of my nipples into his mouth.”



But Julia has a past. A past that is chasing her, threatening harm.

I'm interested to see where #2 goes, there's Coda, (Aidens twin) and a strange one night date that Julia had that I think might rear its head, along with Aiden's secret...........
