~Review: Electrified (The Electric Tunnel #1) by Rachel Blaufeld ~

Everyone knows her as Sienna Flower.

Her curves and long lashes tease and taunt from her very own billboard where the desert meets the Las Vegas Strip. She’s the hottest stripper in town, known for her sultry and indecent moves coupled with her virginal eyes.

She’s a heady and unique combination, and a mystery to all who come to see her.

Sienna captivates crowds nightly at the Electric Tunnel, leaving them wanting to know more about the sensual enigma. But no one ever sees beyond the heavily guarded stripper onstage. She is Sienna Flower 24/7.

No one other than her closest friend and boss, Asher Peterson, who helped turn a young and frightened girl into who Sienna is today. Together they created the sexual illusion known as Sienna Flower. They will go to any lengths to protect her image, which is why Sienna is convinced she must remain unattached and alone.

Like everyone else in Vegas, Sienna is hiding something and playing a role. A good girl in her former life, she was raised to be obedient and accepting of her fate, but there are some circumstances no one should be expected to accept. She escaped to a world light years away from the one she was subjected to…the Electric Tunnel.

Now she can never be anything other than Sienna Flower. Not only would she be hurt, but everyone around her would suffer the consequences.

That is, until she meets private detective Carson Graham, the dark and mysterious ex-FBI agent who watches her dance every weekend. With his dark hair and chocolate-brown eyes, Carson begins to heat Sienna’s heart and body, melting away the layers and secrets. Sienna doesn’t want to get attached to Carson, but when another man surfaces and starts hunting her down, bringing out the scars of her old life, she can’t help but seek comfort in Carson’s protection.

With everyone trading on the secrets of her past, Sienna finds herself caught in an awful web of lies. Her ultimate fear is hurting her friends at the Tunnel, but she doesn’t know who to trust. Namely, Carson. Is he good? Or bad? Does she have the luxury of finding out?

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

Electrified by Rachel Blaufeld is book #1 in her new The Electric Tunnel series.  Rachel is a new author and is coming onto the scene with a loud voice.  This story captured me from the beginning and I couldn't put it down until it was finished.  

Carson Graham, is an ex FBI agent turned private investigator.  He thinks he has everything he wants and needs.  Women, sex, travel and plenty of money; but when he begins to feel the pull of lust, want and need from a sexy exotic dancer, he begins to question everything, as his life changes forever.

Lila, aka Sienna Flower ran away seven years ago from a tormented past and became the most wanted exotic dancer in Vegas, as well as the country.  Fighting against the need she is feeling after meeting a mysterious man who ignites the fires deep within her soul, Sienna is drawn to Mr. TDH.  

This book was awesome!  I really enjoyed reading about Sienna and Carson's story.  It was a beautiful love story that survived many complications to come to a beautiful ending or I could say beginning for them!  I felt so compelled by the characters and actually felt the pain and love that ignited within this couple. I look forward to reading the next book in this series. If you want a book to feed your soul, as well as desires...read this book!    Way to Electrify me, Rachel.  GrÄ“ta
