Exposed Affections is the second book in Author Rene Folsom’s Cornerstone series, following immediately after Shuttered Affections.

This book is for mature audiences. I mean it. Mature. You want to trust me when I say this book is HOT. The first few chapters had me blushing, and I don’t blush. Ever.

This book takes place right after the first, with Julia Peterson placed between twin brothers Aiden and Coda Stone. Just as she’s thinking she may have to choose, the two of them group together and tak

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 ...more

I was given this Arc by the Author for an honest review.

Rene Folsom is an amazing writer! Each story she delivers just gets better and better.

The Cornerstone Series is absolutely amazing and heartfelt.

Can I have my own set of Stone twins? Wow... What woman wouldn't want to be in the middle of a Stone sandwich?

Juliana is a strong woman who has had a terrible past that has snuck up on her once again. Luckily she has two strong protective men watching her back... But the trauma of dealing with

This review is for both Shuttered Affections and Exposed Affections book two in the Cornerstone series. Shuttered Affections (Book One)- I honestly just could not get into this book. Julia was just so weak and whiny to me in this book. I almost did not finish it but I just forced myself to do it and after finishing book two I am glad I decided to not let myfeelings for book one stop me from reading book two.
Exposed Affections (book 2)- I loved this! This book takes you on a hot, steamy, emotion

Meg's Review:
Coda and Aiden. These men make me Melt. Capital M. Melt. Swoon. Kneel. Can I please be written into one of Rene's stories. They are literary AWESOMESAUCE.

We jump back in exactly where we left off. With both of those lovely hand on our thighs. I mean Julia's thighs. Yeah, her thighs. See what I mean? The story just make you imaging you are in it. Trust me. You WANT to be.

Julia's past is back to haunt her. In a big way. But not only is it back, its haunting e

*Sigh* First of all I am still on my Aiden/Coda high as I write this. Rene Folsom is frickin brilliant. Not only does she write a story that captures the audience, but she writes in such a way that makes it damn near impossible to put down. Shuttered Affections was a brilliant start to the Cornerstone series but to really get to the good and dirty fun you have to get into Exposed Affections. This book is NOT for anyone under the age of 18.

I was given a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review. OMG! This book took the whole college student- professor relationship up an entire notch. I could not get enough of this book, could not put it down, and now I need more. Shuttered Affections tells the story of Julia Peterson, a young and beautiful student with a broken past that haunts her. She one day randomly meets a gorgeous man when he steals her parking space at college. Well, imagine Juliana’s surprise when sh ...more

Awesome conclusion to Shuttered Affections!

Exposed Affections picks up right where Shuttered Affections left off and ramps up the heat immediately. There is no slow seduction in the sequel as Aiden's twin brother Coda is thrown into the mix with Julia and Aiden as their relationships develop. Suffice it to say that the twins really do double the pleasure for Julia ... often ... and the scenes were HOT!

I will say that at time

This installment in the series picks up right where Shuttered Affections ends off. Julia is shocked to find that both hunky alpha men, Coda & Aiden, are sitting there with hands on her thighs! Yowza!!!!

Who wouldn't want 2 super hot guys after her affections yet not trying to keep her away from the other? Sign me up please LOL I love how Coda and Aiden are identical, but also different in so many ways and each offers Julia something that she not only wants, but needs!

Rene does it again adding another hot story to her growing list of amazing novels, novellas, and short stories.

This second installment of the Cornerstone series is hot, hot, hot with moments that had my brows rising in shock.

Exposed Affections deals with the issues of Aiden and Julia’s relationship from Shuttered Affections and adds a whole new element in the form of Coda, who has quickly become my favorite character of the book. Julia is again dealt a lot of blows throughout this Novel and mos

Review: 4 stars
General: Please note this is the second in a series and you will be very lost if book 1 is not read first. This book picked up the slack from the first one. The tension from the twist with Aiden and Coda ramps up immediately into one hot, intense scene. The chemistry between the trio blazes right off the page and as always Renee's writing drags you right into

This book was super hot and a little taboo. I was honestly torn the entire time I read it. I don't think this is a spoiler since the synopsis of the book tells you this, but I don't know what I think about her being with both brothers. I wanted her to choose one and I wanted it to be Aiden. In the first book, the chemistry between Julia and Aiden is obvious and I just wanted the two of them to be together. I felt that there were some plot holes in this book in the sense that (hopefully without g ...more

I could not put this down (completed it in one sitting) just the same as Shuttered Affections the first book in the series. I am totally and utterly in love with Aiden and Coda and wish i could reach into the book and claim them for myself (dont tell the husband). As well as the hotness the storyline is utterly brilliant!

I literally finished Shuttered Affections and IMMEDIATELY picked up Exposed Affections because I couldn't wait to find out where the story went. In book one, we got to meet and know Aiden, who stole my heart.. In book two, Coda comes in and equally steals my heart for reasons of his own. I don't think I could pick one over the other. They are twins after all so they are both HOT.. But the way they love on Julia is just amazing. They have to get through a couple rough situations..

Mesmerizing romance with intense sexual situations.

Let me start by saying WOW! This book will leave you breathless. When I finished I had what you call a book hangover. I couldn't get the damn book out of my mind.

In Book 1 I had a major crush on Aiden, but after this read...
I am team CODA all the way.

Aiden is a protector and I love how Julia looks to him for approval. Coda though... He is sweet, caring, and an intense lover.

I think this was a great conclusion to Shuttered Affections. The heat in this one is off the charts. When Aiden introduces his twin brother Coda into their relationship, the sparks that fly are huge. I was a little weirded out with some of the things that happen in the bedroom but for the most part the sex was hot. Julia being so unsure and whinny got to be a little annoying, but I can see why she was written that way. This is a good series to lose yourself in for awhile, you've got the hot sex ...more

This story picks up straight from book one and the action speeds up, but not always in a good way for Julia or the twins. The writing is generally well paced, and it is very difficult to stop turning the pages to see what happens next. Without giving anything away, I can safely say that you will find out much more about Julia's past, and the impact that it threatens to have on her future.

I am very glad I read this series, and although it is complete, I would happily read more ... but for now wil

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. Aweso

Exposed Affections picks up where we were left hanging in the first book. While I enjoyed book 1, this book blew me away!!! It has a love triangle (Julia was NOT complaining about being the middle of the Stone Twin sandwich), fights, kidnapping and a few other twists. Super emotional read, I was crying with Julia at parts. She had it rough, but through it all she had the love and support of her friends and her men.

The sex in this book is HOT!!! But to only was it hot, it was tender and loving.

Rene stopped just short of where I hoped she was going with this one, but that only indicates how much more of a perv I am than she is. Nevertheless, this is one of the hottest books I've ever read! It should be noted, however, that this isn't just a scivvy-scorching erotic romp--EXPOSED AFFECTIONS is a real story with a captivating drama which will hook you and reel you in until you discover that you really do care what happens to these characters next. I loved every second of it, and I'd give ...more

This book is #2 of 2 in the Cornerstone series. Let me just tell you that I couldn't get enough of the characters in this book. I was so jealous of Juliana Peterson...she got to be with gorgeous twin brothers!

The book was well written & kept me wanting more. I cared about the characters and truly felt like I was part of the story....It was a hot story but not raunchy. Nothing makes me put down an erotica book faster than crude language that is not used in everyday relationships. But none of tha

Holy hell this was a hot read. Exposed Affections picks up exactly where we left off in Shuttered Affections where Aiden and Coda have their hand on Julia's leg and she is frozen in place not knowing what to do. In this one she has to figure out what she is going to do with the two hot pieces of meat in her life. Everything is going perfect until her ex boyfriend turns up and destroys everything. She has to try and survive him and pick up the damaged pieces of her life. OMG this was hot hot hot. ...more

Rene Folsom has done it again!! I fell in love with Aiden and Coda, the Stone twins in the first book (who wouldn't love these two hot men) and Julia.
The book picks up right where book 1 left off with Julia wondering what was going on with these two men. It's a story of a love triangle that is so moving. Julia goes through so much with her ex. The twins are there for her every step of the way. To see the love and care the 3 have for each other is so sweet. There is HOT sex scenes but the love a

Rene Folsom continues her story of Juliana and the Stone twins in "Exposed Affections", answering the questions left in Book 1 and giving us more of the "hot" interactions between Julia, Aiden and Coda. I'll not be able to look at a taco the same EVER! The verdict is still out on how this one ended.....hmmmmm...

This was a very entertaining book, that once I started could not put down.

I moved along at a great pace from beginning to end, and did not have any slow times during the entire story. he characters are amazing, you cannot help but fall in love with them and the story was awesome.

Rene Folsom is a very talented author and I am looking forward to her next book.
