This was the first book by Rachel that I read, and I hooked and went straight away to buy book 1 in this series. And although this book is part of a series, you can totally read it as a stand alone and not be lost.Asher and Nat were a hot mess. Asher is all alpha and Nat is so stubborn - I wanted to reach thru the page and shake her a time or two. Having both grown up in the pa [...]

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 p [...]

    12. 4.5 stars!Whew. Smoldered wasn’t only smokin’ hot it was also one wild roller coaster of a ride that took me through the ringer. Smoldered is the second book in the Electric Tunnel series and it is technically a standalone, however, I recommend that you read Electrified beforehand. Everything will make more sense if you do. I was hooked from the beginning of the story. Smoldered is unputdownable. The writing is good, and I loved Asher. I had, and still have, mixed feelings about Natalie. I [...]

    15. 5 Stars!!!Smoldered is a book that will leave you thinking about its characters long after you have finished reading it. Caution – High levels of Angst and Two Massively Frustrating, Pig-headed Lovers. But Oh they are the reason we love these novels.Asher Peterson is one man you will love to hate one minute and swoon over then next. On two occasions in this story I wanted to beat this man up for being such a man-whore and giving up so easily. I had to walk away from the kindle before I did som [...]

    16. 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 As [...]

    17. 4.5 stars!!I was lucky enough to be asked by Rachel to beta read both books in the series so far- Book 1, Electrified, and this one, Smoldered. I can’t thank her enough for trusting me and asking.Set in Vegas, in the world of strippers and strip clubs, we have the story of Asher and Nat- friends in childhood and reunited as adults. We met them in book one but we learn their full story here. And it’s an interesting one full of ups and downs. They come back into each others’ lives unexpected [...]

    18. **** 1/2 starsSmoldered is book two in Rachel Blaufeld's Electric Tunnel Series.What another amazing book. In this book you will find Asher completely torn and broken. It will leave your head spinning and your heart twisting. Although Asher and Natalie have know each other for years do they really know each other at all? Their lives have been picked apart by the ones that were suppose to love and care for them and their walls just seems to crumble to the ground once again. Trying to pick up the [...]

    19. I read Smoldered as a stand alone. The author simply said that my crush Charlie Hunnam was the inspiration for Asher and she had me hooked.Without the background of what I assume is Sienna's story, I don't have any opinions of Asher going in. That being said, I was definitely in LUST with him. His desire to "save and protect" his 5 year junior childhood friend Natalie from some dangers in her life as a stripper, made me develop a crush on him.Their affair has some twist and turns I didn't see co [...]

    20. This was the first book I have read by this author so I wasn't sure what to expect. When I first started this book I felt a disconnect between the two main characters, I didn't feel the chemistry and didn't get the history between the characters. Once I got into the story, holy hell, the pages started to Smolder. The flashbacks gave me just what I needed and everything fell into place. I loved all the secondary characters as well. I'm eager to go back and read Lila and carters story and more abo [...]

    21. Rachel.you have done it AGAIN!! I effing love you! Once again your book has left me speechless. This story has so many twists and turns, love and support and a lot of damn stubbornness and I freaking love it!! Girl you got talent!! The dedication to your grandma had me in tears before I even started the book!! Much love for you!!

    22. Hero admits to having feelings for the heroine, begins a sexual relationship with her, all the while continuing to have sex with other women? No thanks. Disgusting.

    23. I loved all the characters in this book! This was a fast paced booked with a couple twists. Can't wait for the next book in this series!

    24. Note: This ebook was provided by Rock Star Lit PR via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Smoldered is the second book in The Electric Tunnel series by Rachel Blaufeld and the events take place across the same timeline as the first book and contains a few flashbacks. The main characters were introduced previously so I do suggest that you read book one, Electrified, prior to jumping into this one in order for you to have some familiarity regarding what The Electric Tunnel is and the relati [...]

    25. 4.5 out of 5 starsAnother great read, thank you Rachel for showing us more of Asher. Although I had a hard time with some parts of this storyline, I pushed that aside since it was a very “real” feeling journey of mistakes and half-truths. I really loved Asher in the first book so I wanted to give him a chance and I am so glad I did!Asher and Natalie have known each other since they were really young. Thrown together growing up, drifted apart then after a chance meeting at a competitors club, [...]

    26. I was so curious to read this book just for the mere fact I loved the author's debut novel Electrified so much I was wondering it she would be able to follow it up with something equally as fascinating and entertaining. Also I fell in love with Asher in Electrified so I REALLY wanted his story to be good. The bar was set high by the author herself so I almost felt bad for her because she had a lot to live up to for her second book. And thank the lords Rachel Blaufeld blew my expectations out of [...]

    27. Holy Hotness!!!!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.

    28. 3.5 hearts! Asher is definitely smoldering! Fell in major lust with him in "Electrified" and I can tell you, that feeling only intensified when we get his story in "Smoldered." We already know that Asher is an amazing friend and definitely has a damsel in distress complex. He needs to save women. We also got a brief glimpse of his "relationship" with Natalie. Oh but man we don't know that half of it!Natalie's story will rock you. With a long history between her and Asher, its a wonder they both [...]

    29. I was so happy when I was given the chance to read and review Asher's story after learning a little about him in Electrified. Although this can be read as a stand alone, I would recommend reading Electrified first as you won't have so many questions. Asher Peterson is the owner of a strip club called Electric Tunnel, he loves his job and has a need to save and protect broken girls, having them work at his club as he did with Sienna, who is now his business partner. Natalie Parker has loved Ash [...]
