SERIES: Book Two of Power Station Series.
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.

SERIES: Book One of Power Station Series.
SYNOPSISAshlyn 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.
BLP REVIEW ~ Rebecca
Nothing else to say.
HOW the hell did I not read T Gephart before?????
I’m lying of course because, as usual, I have something to say! But I am scratching my head this morning wondering how on earth I missed her. I started this yesterday but stayed up until the early hours of this morning to finish it. One hit, I could not put it down. I’ve been a little bored and jaded lately when reading rockers, bikers and billionaires because the whole bloody market is so over saturated, quantity of choice but not always so much quality so to come across not only a book that was such addictive reading when I had no expectations at all was a surprise, for it to be a rocker book just shows its calibre, this is going to be a favourite without doubt. The book and the author.
So what’s it all about?
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.
And what a show it is.
Ashlyn is just bloody fabulous. Sassy smartass who takes no shit off Dan from their very first meeting. She’s the type of female lead I love reading but don’t always find. A clever girl with a life plan mapped out that includes a career on Wall Street but not a rude crude rock god with a huge ego (amongst other things!). Ash is a redhead with the temperament to match and I adored her.
Dan, well where the fuck do you start with Dan? Actually probably with just that, a fuck, he’s a total unapologetic manwhore who loves life, women and music not necessarily in that order! He lives his life his way, full on and enjoying every second of it. His dirty mouth is a joy to behold, whether he’s being a suggestive git with the innuendos and dirty talk or whether he’s in bed and using it for other things!
From the moment they meet the pull and push between them is fascinating, funny and frustrating (from Dan`s point of view anyway!).
“I hate you.”
I leaned in and whispered, “No, you don’t. You’re just mad ‘cause I make your panties wet.”
“You disgust me!” She pushed against my chest.
“And yet, you still want to sleep with me, don’t you?”
“What? No. Are you insane? I don’t want to sleep with you. Not every woman wants to sleep with you.”
“Maybe that’s true, but you do.”
“You…you…ugh!” She opened her mouth and shut it, wordless.
“It’s okay, sweetheart, don’t fight it. I promise it will be good for you.”
Dan goes after whatever he wants whenever he wants it but Ashlyn is a far more controlled person who has worked too hard to go off plan and lose focus for a fling with a rock star, yet the more she sees and spends time with him the harder it is to keep sight of that plan.
It was the ultimate tease pic: no face, just sculptured, masculine skin. It was raw and unfiltered, just like him.
Life isn’t about the perfect plan. It’s about the perfect storm that engulfs you when you’re busy living it.
When these two people and worlds collide it makes for a story that I devoured because the author spins it that well, it made a tired genre come alive for me again in a way only Olivia Cunning or Samantha Towle usually do. If you are an avid reader then you know the feeling, “I’ll just finish that next chapter, I must go to bed but maybe just a little more, oh fuck it I need to finish and know what happens, who needs sleep”. This is a little gem that I enjoyed, gorged on in one hit. ……..
And having checked on Amazon I discover this is a spin off from her other books, epic fail on my part.
And well done to #RARE14 Edinburgh because that book signing introduced me to the names T Gephart and Lesley Jones and both are bloody amazing.
The Lexi Series –
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.
Like everyone else after the economic crash, Abby Torrance was struggling financially. But then Dorian Lincoln, a political and business icon, sweeps her off her feet and into a life of promise. He’s a man who has enough power to change the world for the better, a man who can give hope to the masses, a man who can give Abby a baby.But the road to Hell is paved with good intentions and Abby is having strange dreams that seem both a warning and a prophesy. How can she give the evil undertones of her dreams any notice when she’s busy focusing on conceiving?
The breath left my lungs in a whoosh with the first smack of the flogger against my unblemished skin. My back arched, my head lifted when he slapped another across my buttocks. When I lifted my eyes to meet a smile holding no hint of emotion, I knew my dark pupils had swallowed the lighter brown of my irises. I took a moment to admire the handsome planes of his face, the arch of his brows over black eyes terrifying in their coldness. It was the look of a man who could beat me to death with the leather in his hand, but I trusted him to know my limits. I closed my eyes and slipped into a place where all I could do was feel. I revelled in the stinging, and clung to the burning of the tattoo pattern. Both sensations affirmed that I was his. Dorian’s ministrations pulled something out of my soul and replaced it with a craving for something deep and dark, something that only pain could fill. Corporal punishment filled me with a satisfaction greater than my need. I hushed the moans before they left my lips and pulled my thighs together to catch the seeping moisture. Dorian’s breathing grew harder, almost a pant as he stood too close, a restless prowler ready to give in. I clutched the carpet and gritted my teeth in silent disappointment when he dropped the flogger. His dark gaze strayed to mine as he rubbed the raised skin on my ass. I bowed my head. “Thank you, Dorian.”

If you were to pass me on the street, you probably wouldn’t even look twice. I’m that normal. I’m just like you, only wealthier. I have it all. The kids, the family, the dog, a house on the hill. Hell—I’m so cliché, I even have a white picket fence. I guess you could say that I’ve dotted my I’s and crossed my T’s. But what I also have—what no one sees in yoga, or at Nieman Marcus, or during the dreadful Ladies Who Lunch charity events I attend (because only God knows why), and perhaps most importantly, in the school pick up line—are secrets.
Deep, dark, deadly secrets.
We all keep secrets, don’t we? We all have thoughts in our heads, things we do, things about us that if people knew, they’d be shocked…right? Well, what if one day we just decided to let the cat out of the bag, so to speak.
What if we decided to let the whole world in on our dirty little secrets? And what if along the way, as we were spilling those secrets, we realized that things aren’t always what they seem and with that knowledge, it changed the whole story?
In this book, I’m laying it all out there. The unraveling of my life. My coming undone. What one might’ve seen had they been paying attention.
What I’ve found in life is people often believe lies before they’ll believe the truth. Well, here it is, in a nutshell. I’ll let you decide which is which.
Myles didn’t wait for a response. He simply grinned, grabbed her arm just above the elbow, and led her out of the bar, and back to his room. Pain was a given, she’d just realized. And sometimes, you just needed to give into it—no matter what form it showed up in.
Jessica watched him go as she dug her toes further into the wet sand and squeezed them, watching as the muddy water poured over her feet and enveloped them. She let him get a ways ahead before she allowed herself to smile—just a little. All along she’d let him think he was breaking her, but maybe, just maybe, they’d actually been breaking each other.
For those of you who prefer it straight up, no chaser: Mama to five. Writer. Juggler extraordinaire. That just about covers it…
The extended version and in third person no less ;): Britney is married to a man she adores (when he isn’t driving her crazy) and is the mother of FIVE pretty amazing kids, who (surprise!) also have a habit of driving her crazy. Her best guess is that it’s genetic. She is the author of two novels, Bedrock and Breaking Bedrock, with plans to release a third and fourth in 2014. In addition, she founded a local network for women in 2012, which has grown to over 1200 members. Currently, she occupies a job she enjoys–serving and running Austin Women’s Network. To further prove that she may in fact be certifiably insane, she decided to pursue her dreams and published her debut novel in May of 2013. Then and only then, could she consider her training to be an expert (life) juggler complete.
