HAPPY RELEASE DAY RACHEL BLAUFELD!!! I am so happy and excited for my friend and fellow author, Rachel Blaufeld on the release of her second novel, Smoldered.

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC copy of Smoldered, and I loved every second of it! Smoldered is Asher’s story. We first meet (and fall in love) with Asher in the first book of the series, Electrified.

Asher is a strong, caring, and an emotionally troubled soul. He has this need to care for women and keep them safe. However, under the jeans, boots, and unbreakable facade, is a gentle and caring man in need of love. One night he comes across an old friend, another woman he feels the need to protect, but old feelings resurface and bring about deeper emotions.

I loved reading Asher and Natalie’s story. It’s real, emotional, and speaks levels of truth about life and its struggles. Rachel has done an amazing job of weaving the story, tying in from the first book and characters, and continuing to expand Asher and Natalie’s story along the way. There is also mystery and and OH MY GOD moment you just can’t help but love. This is an emotion-filled read that will keep you wanting more.

You will find yourself rooting for these characters throughout the entire book, wishing and hoping they find a way to their true happiness and allow themselves the chance to love and be loved. It gets FIVE SMOLDERING STARS from me!

Wicked Wednesday Recommendation

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas? That’s what Sienna Flower hopes when she leaves her home escaping the nightmare that was her life. Vegas. The one place people from her past wouldn’t dare think she’d go to. Let alone, become a stripper at one of the most high end strip clubs.  

Are you ready to get Electrified? Trust me, you want to. This book is a five star read. I absolutely loved Electrified! What a great story and characters, not only the main characters, but the secondary characters as well. This story was so well written and flowed perfectly between the two characters.

 Sienna is the sweetest person. She is a strong and loving heroine. She fought to be happy and live her life, even when she thought she’d never be able to reach her maximum happiness. She’s the person you want as a best friend.

Carson… My oh my… Carson is hot and strong. He’s a man’s man with a no strings attached mentality you can’t help but fall in love with. When he falls, he falls hard. He will stop at nothing to prove his loyalty to Sienna, and that is one HOT quality. 

When these two characters come together, electric sparks fly, no matter how hard neither wants them to. And it’s steamy! The build-up, the anticipation, is perfect.

And that twist! Whoa! That’s all I’ll say. No spoilers on here, but you want to find out about that crazy turn of events!

This book is a must read! You won’t be disappointed. Now let’s all go to Vegas!

Oh, and did I mention the second book in this sequel is coming out in October? Keep your eyes open for Asher’s story. Who’s Asher you ask? Find out in Electrified!
