Electrified by Rachel Blaufeld review

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?

My Review: 4 Electrifying Stars

I was pleasantly surprised with Electrified. After reading the synopsis of Electrified, I was expecting a full blown erotica story. And while this book contained some panty melting scenes, sex wasn't the focus of the book. Electrified has a well thought out plot loaded with sexual tension and a hint of suspense. Throw in some well developed, yet damaged characters and you've got yourself one hell of a read.

The world knows her as Sienna Flowers. The hottest stripper in town, working in Vegas. But that's just a facade she uses to hide the broken and damaged woman. Running from a less that stellar past, Sienna has secured a wall around her heart. Her ultimate goal is to stay safe and that means no attachments or relationships. She very small but tight knit circle, including her business partner Asher. No one knows the full extent of Sienna's past but Asher knows the most and he will stop at nothing to keep her safe and protected. He is so loving and protective of her in a big brother way.

At work one night Sienna locks eyes with Carson Graham, ex-FBI agent and private investigator. Coming from a somewhat troubled past himself, Carson doesn't do feelings or relationships. His work requires him to travel a lot so he is more of a wham-bam-thank-you-maam type of guy. But the moment he locks eyes with Sienna, he begins to second guess his love em and leave em ways.

The sexual tension between the two was intense. And when they did hook was explosive. Ladies get ready to swoon because Carson Graham is gonna rock your world!!! Both Carson and Sienna are swimming in unchartered waters with feelings they aren't familiar with and neither is quite sure how to handle them. Sienna wants to run to keep herself and everyone else safe, Carson wants to pursue a future.

Can these two people with damaged pasts have a happy ever after together with so many secrets between them? Well, you will just need to read to find out. ;)

Looking forward to book 2, which is Asher's story.
