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?
Review: The Electric Tunnel #1: Electrified
Electrified by Rachel Blaufeld is a debut novel and the first in her Electric Tunnel series. A beautiful novel that I could NOT put down.
My criticisms are that it was sometimes hard to read as so much of the story was told in the characters head and it's something I'm not used to reading. There was also a little repetition of the main characters back story that wasn't necessary. I criticize only because it made it take longer to devour this novel.
The story of Sienna and Carson is fabulous. The stripper and the private detective and the plot twists were just really, really good. Even though it was very internalized in the characters minds it was a story that pulled me along making me desire to know the secrets each was hiding and to find out exactly what happens next.
I will definitely be reading more from this author, namely Asher's story when it comes out.
Great book. Couldn't put it down. Very clever writing. Will be reading the books that follow
Good story. Potential to be better
Enjoyed the story. Lots of extra narrative that had me flipping pages to get to the next piece of the story. Probably should invest in a good editor to reduce the repetitive words to make the story a little shorter. The thought is good the length is too long.
