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.


With having been a fan of Rene since the first book of hers that I read, I couldn’t pass up the chance to read her first full length novel.  I do have to say, that I although I did enjoy this book quite a bit more than I had hoped, I still don’t like cliffhangers and this book has a HUGE one.
To be honest, I was quite shocked when I started reading this book because Rene has written a lot of erotica before.  This book?  Although it does have the erotica in it, there is a ton more to the story than just that.  There is a great deal of suspense, drama, excitement and twists that take place that made this book quite enjoyable.
It was so easy to like the characters that we spent time with in the book, Juliana and Aiden were both extremely well written.  Even the secondary characters were done well in my opinion.  All the characters were there for a reason,
and by that I mean that there weren’t a lot of secondary characters that were just “there”.
The entire story went along really smoothly and quickly.  That would be my biggest complaint about the book was that it felt like it was rushed overall.  Don’t get mad at me, what I mean is the story takes place over a short time frame.
There was so much going on that it didn’t feel like it could happen in such a short span of time.
Overall though, I do have to say that I enjoyed the book and I can’t wait to read the next part in the story!


About the Author

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…
