Crash Ride (Power Station #2) by T Gephart - Blog Tour & Review

Title: Crash Ride
Series: Power Station #2
Author: T. Gephart
 Release Date: February 19, 2015



Megan Winters had lusted over Troy Harris, drummer for international rock band Power Station, for years. Not being the type of girl who was invited backstage, her fantasies had stayed just that, fantasies. When her best friend unexpectedly starts dating one of the other band members it puts her on a crash course at war with her libido. Her solution— they need to have sex. Surely once she had scratched that itch, and saw the fantasy didn’t live up to the reality she could move on. I mean, what could possibly go wrong?

Troy Harris vowed to stay away from Megs. The sexy, smart and funny blonde left his mind and his body feeling like a pretzel. No matter how attracted he was to her, she was a no-go zone. The best friend of his best friend’s girlfriend? Cue the reality show. But when she gives him the chance to have a one-night no strings good time, there was no way he could turn that down. Maybe she was right. One night, and then they could go back to being just friends.

Both of them were delusional.

Book two of the Power Station series.

Kristine's Review:

Reviewed: February 2015.

When I first dove into High Strung I was instantly hooked, the easy camaraderie between Dan and Troy had me laughing, the sisterhood between Megan and Ash unquestionable, for a girl like me I understood that bond, the love you can have for your friends is fierce, closer than family, and picking up Crash Ride was like catching up with old mates, the absolute ease in which I sunk back into the world of Power Station is a testament to the writer that T Gephart is.

To say I adored Dan and Ash would be an understatement, but the nervous energy and eager excitement I had to dive into Meg and Troy's world was second to none, dropping all other books the moment Crash Ride hit my kindle.

Megs is the kind of woman I want to be when I grow up, self possessed, strong, career driven, focused, and yet able to unwind and have fun with friends, confidence is sexy, and Megs has it all in spades. Her obsession with Power Station rocker Troy Harris made her that little bit more approachable, more real.

Despite dealing with some heavy themes, Crash Ride is jam packed with the kind of laughter that I've come to expect from Gephart. The attraction between a normal woman and and the out of reach rocker felt so real, we've all been there, lusted after someone who is pie in the sky out of reach, but when Megs best friend becomes involved with Troy's band and best mate, suddenly the man of her dirty dirty dreams is in arms reach.

With a good dose of fun and frivolity and the right balance of heart and soul Crash is the kind of book I love diving into. I could tell you about how Megs brash approach to get Troy's attention was both crazy and endearing. I could tell you that I adored how Megs is balls to the wall in everything she does, how I loved that she let her crazy out, I loved that through phone calls, text messages and late night hook ups, we get to see this relationship bloom, I loved that Gephart's words played in my mind like a movie reel and I love that after everything is said and done I'm still calling him Troy Harris. The boys from Power Station have quickly captured my heart and are showing no signs of letting go.

Author Bio

T Gephart is an indie author from Melbourne, Australia.

T's approach to life has been somewhat unconventional. Rather than going to University, she jumped on a plane to Los Angeles, USA in search of adventure. While this first trip left her somewhat underwhelmed and largely depleted of funds it fueled her appetite for travel and life experience.

With a rather eclectic resume, which reads more like the fiction she writes than an actual employment history, T struggled to find her niche in the world.

While on a subsequent trip the United States in 1999, T met and married her husband. Their whirlwind courtship and interesting impromptu convenience store wedding set the tone for their life together, which is anything but ordinary. They have lived in Louisiana, Guam and Australia and have traveled extensively throughout the US. T has two beautiful young children and one four legged child, Woodley, the wonder dog.

An avid reader, T became increasingly frustrated by the lack of strong female characters in the books she was reading. She wanted to read about a woman she could identify with, someone strong, independent and confident and who didn't lack femininity. Out of this need, she decided to pen her first book, A Twist of Fate. T set herself the challenge to write something that was interesting, compelling and yet easy enough to read that was still enjoyable. Pulling from her own past "colorful" experiences and the amazing personalities she has surrounded herself with, she had no shortage of inspiration. With a strong slant on erotic fiction, her core characters are empowered women who don't have to sacrifice their femininity. She enjoyed the process so much that when it was over she couldn't let it go.

T loves to travel, laugh and surround herself with colorful characters. This inevitably spills into her writing and makes for an interesting journey - she is well and truly enjoying the ride!

Based on her life experiences, T has plenty of material for her books and has a wealth of ideas to keep you all enthralled.
