High Strung (Power Station #1) by T Gephart - Review

Ashlyn Murphy was not living the dream. Twenty-seven years old, college educated, up to her eyeballs in debt and yet she’d been relegated to pouring beers at a local bar. She desperately needed an out and was willing to do anything to get back into the corporate world. Well, almost anything. Dan Evans, Rock Star was NOT one of those things. In fact she despised him. Apparently he didn’t get the memo.

Dan Evans, bass player of international rock band Power Station had it all. He was rich, travelled the world, played to millions of adoring fans and had no shortage of beautiful women willing to share his bed. He didn’t need a moody redheaded knockout with a superiority complex complicating his life. Or did he?

When two people who couldn’t be more opposite cross paths, it’s bound to be explosive; sometimes all you can do is sit back and enjoy the show.

Kristine's Review:
Reviewed: October 2014.

The right book coming along at the perfect time is heaven for reader like me, after picking up so many heavy books of late, I needed a change, something light and funny, with heart and High Strung was exactly that.

T. Gephart's latest work can be read as a stand alone or as a continuation of her popular Lexi series, featuring characters from the band Power Station, this book had me engrossed immediately. Ashlyn drew me in from the first page, with her quick wit and outward bravado she was sweet and sassy, she's the kind of girl you want to be friends with, and at the same time pray to god you never cross. Dan for all his crude dirty talk and sexual innuendo proved he had a heart hidden under a very well defined muscled chest.

What I adored so much about High Strung was the sense of greedy elation I felt reading it. These characters had me invested, I couldn't put it down, I found myself speeding towards the end with a desperate need to find out what would happen and simultaneously chastising myself for not taking my time to savor this world Gephart had created.

In my opinion, High Strung is T. Gephart's best work to date, she has shown a true flair for writing erotic romantic comedy, with the perfect blend of numerous laugh out loud moments coupled with enough heart to keep me invested in not only Ashlyn and Dan but with all the surrounding characters. Her ability to move seamlessly from scene to scene whilst evoking a range of emotions in the reader, has cemented her place as an author who is an automatic 1click for me.

About T Gephart:

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 travelled 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 who didn't lack femininity. Out of this need, she decided to pen her first book, A Twist of Fate. 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 colourful 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.
