Blog Tour and Review - TEMPT by Rene Folsom

Tempt - Tour Banner  


In Patti's Imagination rating: 9/10 stars.
Goodreads/Amazon rating: 4/5 stars.

I enjoyed this novella. Rene's prose is elegant and descriptive in a way I can't seem to manage in so few words. For this alone, her books will always get a minimum of 3 (or 7) stars from me. I liked the plot and loved the twist on the traditional Red Riding Hood tale. Not only is it a contemporary setting, but the basic story is turned on its head. As with all of Rene's shorter works, I'm left wanting more, not because the story isn't complete, but because I need to stay with these characters. So, why the slightly lower rating? Well, the sexy parts of the story were hot, but nowhere near the level of some of her other shorter stories. Personally, I'm okay with that and I think, because of it, I can recommend TEMPT to an audience that might be willing to read a less-traditional story (there is a f/f element here) but doesn't want hardcore porn in their erotic stories. However, if a reader was looking for a far more graphic read, they'd be disappointed, so I'm dropping a star on my Goodreads/Amazon ratings. While I think it's more 4.5 than 4, I don't think it's a hard 4.5 and can be rounded up to 5. But, here on my blog, I can rate half-point x 2, so I'm giving it a 9/10. Loved it, Rene! Can't wait for more. And now, I better go read her Cornerstone series, so I can stop complaining that I want a longer book!

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 often has a million and one writing projects going at once. In addition to writing, she is also a graphic artist who enjoys creating custom book covers 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...
