If this book wasn't a cliff hanger, I would have given it two stars. The beginning of this book was really good. Hot professor is attracted to a student. I know, it's forbidden, and that is what made me purchase the book in the first place. However, once I purchased the book and continued past the third chapter, the book read like every other book I have purchased lately. It just read like the same old thing. I'm sick of the same formula. I want romance and some sex. Not just sex, sex, sex. Too many books I've read are the same thing. If this book would have been a "stand alone," book, I probably would have given it two stars, but since it was a cliffhanger, I gave it one star. Don't waste your money to buy the second. It's the same old story, and there are too many good books out there that are too good that you will want to purchase.

A truly enjoyable read. Ms. Folsom’s talent shines!
An interesting storyline that had good flow. Great characters were adequately developed. They were easy to laugh, cry and get angry with as their lives unfold.
Julianna is interesting. She has talent and potential to become a photojournalist. She moves to a new town and putting her past behind her, or so she thinks, to start life over with her best friend in tow. She is a unique individual that has both strength and fortitude.
Aiden Stone, her photography professor and parking spot thief, is quiet a mystery. He pursues her even though he should not. He admires her talent and sees her for the Angel he wants for his own.
Is he right for her? They both have skeletons in their prospective closets. She has a crazy ex boyfriend that is a stalker…who finds her. He has a few secrets as well; he is willing to share his with her. She does not say anything until things get bad.
Their attraction is clear to everyone, people she works with, some of the students in the photography class and both of their friends see it.
Aiden appreciates her talent and pushes her to be better.

“The lines flow through each piece perfectly, like they were random puzzle pieces just waiting to be met with their mates.” ~Mr. Aiden Stone to Julianna on her set of photographs he helped her arrange for a project.

So much is in this storyline. It is exciting and paced so well, it is easy to keep up with the roller coaster of emotions readers will experience. It will leave you holding your breath for the next novel in the series!

Ahhh the forbidden professor/student relationship, one of the main topics in Shuttered Affections, and unfortunately the topic that is brushed to the way side very early on. In this book we have a broken girl, hot professor and secrets on both sides waiting to be told.

Juliana is a college art student, living with her friend Sid and works at a club at night. She has left her past behind for a fresh start and tends to keep to herself because it is just easier that way. Still carrying baggage from the past, Juliana is trying to move forward with her future. One crazy morning at school Juliana runs into Aiden Stone in the worst way possible.

Aiden Stone is the new Professor of Juliana's photography class and is instantly drawn to her. He is new to the town as well and carrying a bit of baggage from his past. Aiden doesn't hide the fact that he feels something for Juliana and instantly acts on it right in the classroom. For some reason he needs to make her his Angel (which annoyed me the entire book).

This is where I had a really hard time hanging on to the story line, as it gets pretty convoluted with his secrets as well as her abusive past. Aiden and Juliana start to see each other at school and outside of school. At one point I think the fact that he is a professor is actually forgotten because the guy didn't worry about it one bit. For me, the angst of the student/teacher romance is the getting caught part. I like to have the professor wavering about the relationship vs his job. Also we have Juliana fresh off the heels of an abusive relationship right into another one with her professor. I felt a girl with the past such as hers would be a little more cautious when playing the field.

You know those moments in a really good romance where you just want the characters to jump one another? Well there are a few in this beauty.

It’s no revelation to anyone who reads my blog or follows my facebook page that I adore Rene’s writing. She has yet to put something out there that I haven’t enjoyed. Shuttered Affections was no different. I have to say that this book might be my favorite. Though I did threaten to shake her, when I read the last line. We have a cliff hanger that involves two very sexy men.

At the heart of this story is Juliana, sweet girl with a messed-up past due to a shitty man and an abusive relationship. This part of the storyline might be where I feel Rene found a voice for Juliana without throwing the details of abuse in our face. We get to understand Juliana or Julia as she is mostly referred to without having to relive her past in blaring detail. There is a time and place for those stories to be told. I am personally glad that Rene didn’t choose this book as the platform for those details.

Moving on we have our super sexy, talented lead male. Aiden. Can I just ask… where was Aiden when I was in school? This man is sex appeal and every time he hit the pages my tummy fluttered wondering what he would do next. He caused my jaw to drop on more than one occasion. Some good reasons, some what the hell moments and others… well let’s just say he’s full of surprises. Like a super hot twin!

The connection was fast, fierce, sweet and passionate between our leads, but lines of propriety were blurred making this story just a little more delish in my opinion. As always the sex is hot, steamy and well written, just as I have come to expect from this brilliant author. Oh and I cannot forget to give the cover a shout out, because I love it!

So this book is hands down a five star for me. I cannot wait to see where this series goes as I believe there are some steamy secrets awaiting us all.
