Staring at the hands of two men greedily clutching her legs, Julia is frozen in place—unsure of how she should react to their dual-intimacy. It’s one thing to have her photography professor show an interest in her, but to also have his identical twin making advances puts Julia’s mind into a total state of chaotic confusion.  Is she able to handle the pressure of choosing between two men, who both manage to take her breath away?

In the last week, Julia Peterson’s life has become an emotional roller coaster with breathtaking twists that include breaking all the rules with a certain professor, to gut-wrenching horror as a stalker from her past lurks behind the scenes and threatens her new happiness. 

Despite her attempts to conceal her secrets and keep her friends in the dark, she must learn to cope with the idea that not all secrets are meant to stay hidden. When her haunting past comes at her with a vengeance and life is determined to beat her down, Julia must discover true strength within herself before she is able to open her heart, find who she really is, and learn to love.

Exposed Affections is the second and final novel in the Cornerstone series, contains mature content, and is meant for adult readers ages 18 and up.

Holy hotness, I love this book!!! But I do feel the need to warn that while the description says this book is for adults, there are some things that could be considered triggers. That being said, WOW!!!! What a great book & I liked that at the end there is a little bit extra, giving Aiden’s view of the beginning of Shuttered Affections. I definitely loved this book!!!!!

I couldn’t wait to start reading this book after the way the first one, Shuttered Affections, had left me hanging! So when I was finally able to start reading it, I completely ignored everyone, and everything, so that I could read it in complete peace. And I’m really glad that I had done that because this story was just amazing! I’ll go ahead and get the bad over with before I start going on and on about the story! The main thing that I didn’t like about the book was that there was no hint from Julia at all that she was/is interested in being in a ménage relationship. I suppose I was hoping for a bit of confusion on her part when it was first introduced that Aiden wanted to bring Coda into their relationship. There wasn’t any real hesitation from Julia in the beginning -- she just basically was completely ok with Coda being brought in. To me personally, I felt like that was too “story book” because normally a person would really think about that before just jumping in head first. There were also times during the sex scenes where it didn’t really feel that “real” to me because they would carry on almost complete conversations while in the act. But besides those points, I still really did enjoy the story. I think that Ms. Folsom did a great job with the story overall. The action and suspense that was happening during the course of the first book was continued on into this book. It really kept me at the edge of my seat with just how amazingly well written it was done. I do have to give Ms. Folsom mad props because the graphic violent scenes where not overdone. She did not take them to an insane level, she just gave you enough information that you could picture it in your head without giving you too many details. I will say that I was very pleased about the fact that the suspense wasn’t solved right away in this story. It did continue on throughout it all, and I loved that because it didn’t feel as though Ms. Folsom was rushing anything. With identical twins, I was worried that I would end up confused when it came to Aiden and Coda, especially if their name wasn’t given first. But once again I give Ms. Folsom credit because she was able to give each character their own personality. I was able to follow along with who was who just by the way they spoke and their actions. I was so disappointed when this book ended because I wanted more from the characters! I really do hope that Ms. Folsom will give us an update on them at some point in the future!

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here it is. I loved Shuttered Affections and had to start this one quickly just to find out what happened next. And it nearly caught my kindle on fire. The story is hotter and better than the first. Julia is finding that being in the middle of a Stone sandwich is really where she wants to be. And who wouldn't, the Stone brothers are perfect, sexy, possessive to a point and very HOT! All they want is to protect Julia from her past. While the ex-boyfriend is still trying to get to her, Julia is trying to more forward. And that includes moving forward with Aiden and Coda. And they are all realizing that after a very short time that they are all falling in love. But Julia keeps telling herself that it's not love, it can't be after knowing them for a few days. This story will bring out the emotions that I find to make a great story greater. You will feel the pain Julia has gone through and will go through, love that three people share, betrayal from her parents and a protective and loving best friend. Also in the telling of Julia's past with the ex, it is disturbing and somewhat graphic, so if you don't like stories about abuse, rape and stalker ex-boyfriends, then maybe you shouldn't read this one. But I think you should because you can get past that part to find a fantastic story to enjoy. And I loved every single thing about it. ***Wicked Reads Review Team***

TWINS Oh my what an awesome read! This book had me in tears, angry, happy, and the sex scenes were mind blowing. The things she had to go through were so heartbreaking, her ex had me wanting to hunt him down and castrate him if not more. Of the twins I liked Coda best but don't tell Aiden. ;) Stone sandwich mmmm. The twins are her soul mates and make her whole again. These three have a very unconventional relationship but these days who cares as long as it's consensual and makes them happy. Awesome writing by the author. WELL DONE. If you haven't had a chance to read any of her books you are missing out.

..........“So, does it turn you on to take both of us, Julia?” ..........In answer to his question, I grabbed his hand and guided it up my skirt. I used his hand to push aside my damp, satin ..........panties and rubbed his fingers against my wet center. Aiden sucked in a tight breath and closed his eyes. ..........“ Does that answer your question, Mr. Stone?” I whispered into his ear. Um hello - talk about starting right off with the erotic, steamy stuff. All I can say is Julia you are one lucky woman. Not just one but 2 hot, sexy, gorgeous men. WOW!!! Just as Julia is beginning to enjoy this new twist in her life, “Double the flavor, double the fun.” LOL the painful past she has tried to run from, tried to keep hidden, rears its ugly head again. More of her friends are dragged into what she considers a stain on her life. As always Rene Folsom does a fabulous job with her characters. The story grabs you and sucks you right in and you are automatically connected with them mentally and emotionally. It’s like you are in the room while those steamy moments are going on - oh to be Julia - again WOW!!! You can feel the want, the need, the longing and the love that both Aiden and Code have for Julia. Like I said “Oh to be Julia.” You can feel her worry and fright and her self doubt that her past has caused. That Rob might completely destroy her new and happy life. I will say this book had my emotions rolling. What Julia goes through, no woman should ever have to go through. But to know she has so many who would go to the ends of the earth for her is just absolutely amazing. As a side note, the entire time I am reading I am praying that Coda puts Julia’s parents in their place - wow how sad and pathetic they are. I am hoping that Aiden can finally be done with a long standing arrangement, and that Julia gets her happily ever after, and not just with Aiden and Coda, but with something she has dreamed of and she deserves. This is by far another 5 star review and like wine, that gets better with time, Exposed Affections is everything you would expect after reading book 1 “Shuttered Affections”, only better. Rene has outdone herself with this book. One of my favorite sayings in this entire book “How many licks does it take…?” That is all I am going to say - get the book and find out for yourself just what this is referring to…. You won’t be disappointed. Oh and have a super large fan on full going. LOL
