Do yourself a favor and grab the first couple books in this series and grab the new one today!!!!
Rachel Blaufeld returns to the Electric Tunnel universe with the third book in the series; Tinged. This is the darkest and grittiest story I have read by this author, but if you take into account the subject matter it was always going to be a challenging story.
I haven’t read the previous two books in this series, and although I think it may have benefitted me in giving a deeper understanding to a lot of the secondary characters in this book, I don’t think my reading enjoyment was impaired from not having read them first, so if you are concerned about this don’t be as Tinged can absolutely be read as a standalone.
I was chasing a hooker-one that I believed I was hopelessly in love with…
Its hard to write a review for this one without giving too much of the plot away, I am not sure if the beginning of this couples relationship was covered in the previous books, I suspect so a Lynx and Mike’s background information implies that to me, but the quote above adequately gives you the reasons for this book. Lynx’s sudden disappearance from Mike’s life, and his attempts to find her.
"You’re not tinged… Not then, not now, not ever."
As you would expect the world of prostitution, pimps and strip clubs is not the stuff of fairytales and the author has definitely not portrayed it that way. Mike; although the big burly, crass and forthright strip club owner, has a certain vulnerability behind that brittle outer shell, and although operating on what some of us would class the seedier side of life, really went out of his way to take care of the underdog. As I said there isn’t a massive amount I can say about the story without giving things away, but I am sure you can come up with a few ideas yourself as to what could potentially happen to a beautiful young woman, who sells her body for money, but then disappears without a trace.
I’d put her back together, stitch her up inside and out, and love her until she was whole.
The story is told from both POV’s so you experience what Lynx is going through, as well as Mike’s emotional turmoil whilst trying to find out where she went. The second part of the story is the rebuilding of that relationship after everything has happened, and again it’s a bit gritty, and a little dark in places, but as with most treasures, you need to clean away the dust, dirt and grime to find the precious material beneath it.
"Loved you since we first me and plan to love you forever, messy or not."
I won’t lie this is a story that took me out of my comfort zone, given the option between a story of this type and something a little more… let’s say fluffier I would generally go for the fluff. But this is Rachel Blaufeld, everything I have read by this author turns into an emotional as much as enjoyable reading experience, and Tinged was not different, although it feels a bit wrong calling Mike and Lynx’s story enjoyable, as I was more on tenterhooks through a lot of it, than sitting there with a smile on my face. As with all of her books, the story pulls you in, leaves you a little bit breathless, and keeps you in its grasp until the end, it was certainly an experience reading this couples fight to get their happily ever after.
"It’s time to look forward."
What I love most about Blaufeld's stories is that she's not scared of differences between two people no matter what those differences may be. She portrays love and honesty with such beauty and admiration. Her stories don't see color or age or any form of degradation within the confines of love and romanticism. Her writing reflects that of respect and fairness and an innate goodness that we can all reach for both in our friendships and our romantic lives.
Blaufeld's consistently elegant and honest story telling shines in this installment. The Electric Tunnel franchise is moving forward, a theme laced throughout this story. Moving on and moving up and moving past those demons which haunt you with the help of friends and lovers. Mike and Lynx have a path no one wants to follow. It's not easy story yet somehow Mike's steady, unwavering confidence makes it so for Lynx, who's troubles seem to be always lurking. She's a woman trying to best those aforementioned demons alone. She's charismatic, loyal, and it's easy to see the chemistry between her and Mike. You feel it deeply even as the threads of their lives start unraveling .... again.
Catching up with this crew reminded me of how much I loved this series that introduced me to Blaufeld's writing. With a current of intrigue humming within the pages and the unexpected places Blaufeld doesn't fear going with her writing you'll find yourself entranced by Mike and Lynx. If you haven't read the previous book Mike and Lynx friends will make you want to. Another shining example of the great romance Blaufeld gifts us.
