Back Stage (Power Station #3) by T Gephart

More from the Power Station boys – at last! This time in Back Stage its all about Jason!

Blurb

Rock Star? Angie Morelli was not one. Growing up next to Power Station’s drummer didn’t guarantee a taste of the limelight, unless you count catcalls at low paying gigs in seedy bars and second-rate venues. She was okay with that; working her ass off at her dad’s mechanic shop during the day meant she could live her dream at night. She didn’t need Power Station waltzing back into her life, Jason Irwin had done enough damage the first time. Could she let go of her hurt for a chance of hitting the big time?

A one-night stand right before Jason Irwin left for his big break was no big deal. Except it wasn’t just any girl— it was Angie, Troy’s hot but young and inexperienced neighbor. It should never have happened, so best he pretend like it didn’t. Ten years later he remembered exactly why he went down that road. She was even hotter and she was also pissed as hell. Sounded like the perfect combination to invite on their world tour.

The road was not the place for history. It was bound to get ugly.

 

Book Three of the Power Station Series.

Review

I love these books! I’m definitely all things Power Station and it’s great to visit the boys again, this time to read about keyboard player Jason.

Angie grew up on the same street as Troy and knew the band well before they became big. When Jason Irwin came one summer, Angie’s poor teenage heart wasn’t prepared for him walking around her lawn with his shirt off. Completely helpless to his charm she falls head over heels in love with him. But when she finally gets a chance with him, things don’t go the way she’d hoped for.

Years later and now in a band of her own she’s still bitter over the way they parted. When Troy finds her one night with a massive opportunity for her band, she’s reluctant to agree knowing she’ll have to face Jason but she can’t deny her bandmate’s such a great opportunity. Now faced with weeks on the road with Jason again, will she be able to resist him or will she fall prey to his charm once again?

Jason has never believed he was good enough for Angie, never wanted to be with her only to ruin her life. Will he be able to work through his past and all his demons?

So in love with this series!! Really enjoyed reading Angie and Jason’s story – loved Angie’s personality, so feisty! Especially her songs at the end of each performance for Jason, so funny!! Jason’s past and his problems definitely added a different element to the story too. And we get to see more from the others and their kids! Yet another must read in this series!

Excerpt

“Hey what about Angie Morelli?” Troy rubbed his hand through his mohawk, the mess of crap he called hair.

Angie Morelli.

Yep, just saying her name was enough to send a chill up my spine. It had been ten years, and still not long enough. Her long, black hair and dark-brown eyes, something that had taken a while to wipe from my mind. That body. Yeah, I still remembered every curve. So freaking sweet, too. Unfortunately it wasn’t only her attributes that I remembered, one of my biggest asshole moments was also front and center getting the trip down memory lane. So you would have to understand why I didn’t immediately start doing backflips and welcoming her. The idea was to avoid the drama, not to give it top freaking billing.

“Dude, no. No fucking way,” Dan chimed in, his words echoing exactly what was rattling around in my head.

Thank you, douchebag. An Angie reunion was bad news. There had to be someone else. Hey, was Charlie Manson out of prison yet? I mean if we were thinking up bad ideas to take on tour, we might as well put them all on the table.

“She’s still playing?” James tipped his head toward Troy, taking way more interest in the topic than I would have liked. The itch to shut the conversation down danced with the need to keep my mouth shut. Delicate act. Wasn’t sure which one was going to win. Honestly, it was going to be trouble either way.

“Sure is. Lexi is trying to sign her band, Black Addiction; saw them last week at a club in Brooklyn. She said they packed the house.” Troy threw some more weight behind the cause. The conversation continued around me, even as the mother of all headaches took up residence in my frontal lobe.

“I saw her stuff on You Tube, they’re tight.” Alex nodded, the bastard not having any idea on what he was signing us up for, and I wasn’t going to be neon-signing it for him either.

“C’mon! Angie?” Dan rolled his eyes, throwing his hands up in disgust. “Troy, did you snort some of Wade’s nose candy before he left? She doesn’t have the chops for a stadium. Besides, she hates us.”

Had to admit, this was one time where I was happy for Dan to be running his mouth. Giving him a round of applause would have been too conspicuous, so I kept it on the down low, but I was a hundred percent behind his stance. The fact it wasn’t me who was leading the anti-Angie movement was a fucking bonus.

“No, she hates you.” Troy smirked. The Dan v Angie battles common knowledge.

“No, she fucking hates Jase, too.”

The motherfucker had to go there. He couldn’t have left it with his own reasons for not wanting her around. He had to go ahead and drag me into it.

“Hate is a pretty strong word, let’s go with a strong dislike.” I eased back into the chair knowing well enough that it wasn’t going to be the last on the topic I was going to have to volunteer. Fucking Dan.

“Dan I understand, but why you, Jase?” Troy’s raised eyebrow proving he had no idea what had happened between me and his sexy, barely legal neighbor before we’d hit the big time.

At least Dan had managed to keep a lid on it for longer than I’d ever imagined; I’d always had my suspicions that he’d spilled one time or another, but seems to be those concerns were unfounded. Who knew he had it in him. In the end, the violence was still happening. I’d just make sure I didn’t punch him above the neck, keep the SOB pretty for the fans.

“Long story.” Well at least it wasn’t a total lie. “Let’s just say I’m not her favorite person and move on, shall we.” The less I said about the subject the better. Besides, it was fucking years ago. Why the hell were we dredging it all up now?

 

“I heard she has a voodoo doll of you.” Dan stretched out his arms, anchoring them behind his head, his grin splitting off the side of his face. “Tell me, asswipe, do you feel any stabbing pain in your cock?”

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.

Crash Ride by T Gephart

Book Two in the Power Station series Crash Ride is finally here – yay! Now we get to read all about Megs and her Troy Harris – double yay! 😉

Synopsis

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.

My Review

I’m completely and utterly in love with this series! When I heard we were getting more of Power Station I was all over it the instant it hit my kindle!! Especially as we get to read all about Megs and Troy Harris!! They were such great characters in the first book, especially Megs who I find absolutely hilarious!

The beginning of the book covers the very first time the girls meet Power Station and the start of Dan and Ash’s truly brilliant relationship drama. Megan has always loved, and by loved I mean borderline obsessive stalker loved, the band Power Station and her passion for drummer Troy Harris is widely known. So when she gets to meet the main man himself it’s no surprise she throws herself at him – literally.

But Troy made himself and Dan a promise that he would never date/sleep with a girl that would complicate their friendship. Dating the bestfriend of his bestfriend’s girlfriend? Yeah that’s pretty damn complicated. So he vows to stay away from her and stay firmly in the friend-zone. But with some pretty heavy tension between the two of them it isn’t easy.

When Megs in her great wisdom decides they just need one night together – one night to scratch the itch and get over their feelings – then go back to how they were, Troy is unable to say no.

Of course nothing is ever that easy, and one night will never be enough.

What started out as something that was never meant to be complicated goes to become one giant clusterfuck, and when shit hits the fan will it be too late?

With some incredibly funny scenes that I’ve now come to expect from T Gephart I completely adored reading this next instalment. Megs is just so brash and down right hilarious – hers and Troy’s relationship was great and their phone conversations were A-MA-ZING! But at the same time this book deals with some pretty heavy stuff which was just so beautifully written and didn’t bring the story down but instead gave it yet another level.

Megs is definitely my favourite kind of crazy and her Power Station obsession was one of the best things about the book. The fact Dan and Ash, as well as the rest of Power Station were also quite prominent in the book was even better – I love these guys!

The boys of Power Station are well and truly on my list of go to book boyfriends now, and they are showing no signs of coming off it if the series continues to be as fabulous!

Crash Ride is witty and the best kind of crazy with a massive side-helping of sexy and a whole lot of feels. If you’re not obsessing over Power Station as much as Megs by the end of the book you obviously didn’t read it properly.

Read  Crash Ride for yourself here…
