"This book has a little bit of everything in it. Hot steamy sex, passion, love and a reckoning of monumental proportions! I couldn't believe how the story took shape and grew even more intriguing as I turned each page. My heart was pounding in my chest and my panties were wet from the depth of the writing in this story! I was totally smoldered, Rachel!!!" ~ Twin Sisters Rockin' Book Reviews
"We have a lot of choices to make when it comes to books these days. There are so many released every day and honestly it's hard to keep up with the up and coming releases anymore. But sometimes you find that true diamond in the rough, someone that writes a story that grips your heart and soul and sends your emotions soaring and your left wanting the next book...Nat and Ash's highs and lows will have you cresting and falling like the waves of the ocean and in the end you will be left with fantastic story that will stick with you." ~ Jennifer Wolfel, Wolfel's World of Books & The Starlets
TOP 30 BOOKS of 2014! - "This book, once I was done with it, I just could not stop thinking about it. And the title is so perfect...SMOLDERING HOT!" ~ Becca the Bibliophile
"A gritty and raw love story about real people, with real problems, overcoming real challenges." - Susan Ward, Author
"Smoldered", Book 2 of the "Electric Tunnel" series, is even better than Book1, which was awesome!! "Smoldered" stands alone well, but you may enjoy these books more if you read them in order. Ash owns the "Electric Tunnel" and has convinced Natalie to move from another strip club to his strip club. Ash loves to save and protect women, and has known and cared for Natalie since he was a boy; he also hasn't seen her in years, but quickly becomes obsessed with her. Las Vegas Nightlife was all Ash and Natalie knew as children whose parents worked in the business, and as adults themselves. This work environment doesn't come without issues, but it also provides a family-type feeling in all who work at the strip club. This is a fascinating story of one look at a strip club in Las Vegas and the men and women who go there. It is also an intense love story that is not predictable and comes with lots of surprises!
Once again Rachel has done it. I never thought that another book could compare to Electrified, but Smoldered is just as awesome. She once again gripped my attention, heart strings, and imagination. I have love reading her books, they are so well written its like a movie playing in my head. I cannot put into words how wonderfully talented she is. I recommend this book to all my friends and to everyone that looks at reviews. Unlike some I do not go into detail about the book, the purpose of the review is to say "Hey you want to read something awesome, read Electrified then read Smoldered. You won't regret it." I don't believe in going in depth about the book, that's your journey that Rachel is taking you on. Just know there is always someone in your life that can somewhat relate to these characters, may not be strippers and a millionaire owner, but the emotions these people go through are real, the really happen to people. I can't say enough about Rachel, she is not only an awesome author but an awesome person. The next few months waiting for Tinged to come out!!
We have a lot of choices to make when it comes to books these days. There are so many released every day and honestly it's hard to keep up with the up and coming releases anymore. But sometimes you find that true diamond in the rough, someone that writes a story that grips your heart and soul and sends your emotions soaring and your left wanting the next book. Rachel had that effect on me. I fell in love with her characters in Electrified and couldn't wait to devour Smoldered.
When I first met Asher as the club owner of the Electric Tunnel I knew that this man had deep rooted issues and secrets from his past. He was sort of an enigma. His story was truly intriguing, the tidbits that we got during the first book so I couldn't wait to have his full story. Especially when it came to the sneaking around he seemed to do with Natalie. Their story just simply blew me away! There were so many things that I didn't see coming throughout this book. Ash is hot and sexy but vulnerable at the same time, he doesn't like hearing "no" and he has no problem letting you know it either.
Natalie is holding some things from the past that she doesn't want Asher or anyone else to know so she keeps everyone at an arms length. She doesn't trust anyone even in her closest inner circle of friends. But even in her most vulnerable of times she shows a strong front as a single mom fighting for her child and her independence. I truly loved her character and though I didn't always agree her strength and conviction in her choices made it easier to understand.
Smoldered is hot and sexy, sad and frustrating and all around just a fantastic read! I went through all the emotions in this book, from extreme elation to ugly tears. If you like a well rounded read with a hot and sassy female lead and a sexy won't take NO for an answer hero then this is a book I would highly recommend. Nat and Ash's highs and lows will have you cresting and falling like the waves of the ocean and in the end you will be left with fantastic story that will stick with you. I gave Smoldered 5 stars. I think this 2nd book from Rachel was brilliantly written and highly entertaining from beginning to end. Once I started I didn't want to put it down.
I just finished this book and LOVED it:) I truly enjoyed reading the first book in this series and was excited to read this one! Now, I am not gonna lie, this book was full of angsty moments... I mean thank goodness I went into this fairly blind because I had to work past a lot of "hard limits" for me as a reader, lol, yep and it was so damn worth it!!!!!!
This was a very tough love story to read during the first half of the book, for me personally, there were a lot of issues in this story I had that normally I just couldn't push past BUT I did and the second half and especially that last quarter of this book made it ALL worth the long, angsty filled ride!!!!! Asher, oh Asher, he was a first class douche...but gosh did I LOVE him.... I did get a bit put off at first with his "relationship" with Sienna/Lila, it was a bit too much for me personally, especially when she seemed to always come first, now that part I definitely did't like, hehehehe! Natalie was one tough, stubborn woman and although I understood a part of it, she did frustrate the crap out of me most of the time, lolol:) Quinn, oh Quinn, LOVED that kid:)
This story had every emotion possible and I absolutely LOVED the Epilogue as it made this roller coaster ride worth every stressed filled moment for me so damn worth it!!!!!! LOVED IT!!!!!!!
Now, I cannot wait for Mike's story and hell, hopefully we continue with all the great characters we met at The Tunnel, too:)
This is the second book of this series. I really loved reading Asher and Nat's story and getting to know them better. They were both very stubborn, with hearts beating only for each other. I was routing for them to get their happily ever after. I was not disappointed, this is a must read.
