There comes a point in your life where you have to say enough is enough.

I wasted my college years on a guy who played with my head, played with my heart. I was blinded by the fairytale, the one that didn’t exist.

The day I gave up on the idea of happily ever after, my focus became me. Moving forward and establishing my career.

Until one day…

I didn’t expect him. My new boss, a six foot two, inked rock god. I believed I was working for the record label, I was wrong.

It’s impossible for me to keep my distance, believe me I’ve tried. He’s not who I expected him to be. He’s so much more he’s…Emphatic

Review

I’ve read quite a few Rock Star/Boyband type romances but I have to say I really loved this take on the genre! Logan and her bestfriend Stacy have just graduated and as a present their parents are jetting them off to Hawaii for a week! Things couldn’t be more perfect with each of them securing new jobs to start when they come back. The only dampener on the celebrations is Logan breaking up with her waste of space ex. Fed up of his playboy ways she breaks it off with him and promises to start enjoying her new single girl life, starting with their awesome stay in paradise.

Staying on a private island neither of them expected to have such a drop dead gorgeous neighbour, but one look at Michael leaves Logan breathless. After a week full of romance using her middle name as an alias, Logan is reluctant to leave but this was merely a holiday fling to start her new single life. Leaving Michael on the island and returning home, she’s excited to start her new job working as a PA for a rock band.

On the first day of her new job, her new boss is yet to arrive. Having met the rest of the band things started out great until her new boss arrived – her new boss being Michael, or rather Kacen as he too used his middle name. Now stuck working for her holiday lover she has no choice but to keep it professional for the sake of her job. But how long can they resist one another?

Absolutely loved this story! The chemistry between Logan and Kacen was brilliant and the other boys in the band were just as loveable as Kacen. Loved the plot and the drama, definitely would love to read more about these guys!

Ready To Love by Franca Storm

Today is the release of Ready to Love by Franca Storm! Check this HOT new college rocker romance out now!

Blurb

She is the one woman who is always off limits…

College rocker and infamous playboy, John Kingston, has screwed his way through most of the women on campus. But there’s one woman he will never touch: his best friend and band mate, Nicki. For four years, he’s been her protector and her confidant.When arrogant frat guy, Axel, attempts to make a claim on her, John suffers a painful wakeup call, quickly realizing that his feelings for Nicki are not purely platonic. Recognizing that Axel’s intentions are anything but innocent, John’s possessiveness spirals out of control, sparking a dangerous feud.

Nicola Lewis can’t bear to be touched. Haunted by an awful past that she has been unable to escape, she has kept her distance from the opposite sex. And she’s been just fine living her life that way: safe and uncomplicated with no chance of getting hurt again.

Until an unexpected kiss changes everything…

But John and Nicki must decide whether the burgeoning desire between them is worth the risk. Is this a case of love conquers all, or a huge mistake that could destroy everything?

Review

Nikki can’t stand to be touched, especially by men. For so long she’s avoided dating and any form of intimate contact with all guys but one, John Kingston. He was the guy who saw her at her lowest and picked her back up again – she trusts him completely. But recently their friendship has felt like more and Nikki finds herself wishing she could go that bit further with him.

Not wanting to ruin their friendship she accepts the advances of campus playboy Axel who seems nice enough. Caught up in his words she doesn’t see the kind of guy he really is behind the charm – but John does. With his feelings on the line he must choose whether to step in and man up, claiming Nikki for his own or let her go and let her move on with her life. Will they be able to move on from the past and make a future together?

I really enjoyed this book, lots of drama and emotion as well as some great sexual chemistry! With Nikki’s past and Axel in the mix it created a variety of drama filled situations for Nikki and John to face and they are one HOT couple! Excellent read which I devoured in one sitting, definitely worth a read.

Excerpt

 

As I lay back on the bed, propping the pillows up behind me so that I’m half lying, half sitting, I suddenly feel insanely nervous. Shit. I cross my legs, feeling uncomfortable not wearing any underwear beneath the skimpy slip of a nightdress. I try to strike what I think is a sexy pose, but everything feels so awkward. I’ve seen women do it in the movies—how do they pull it off so easily?

I can’t do this.

I slide off the bed, intending to make my way into the bathroom to grab my bathrobe when the door opens. Oh no! Too late!

“Got your text. So, you’ve got me alone. So, what’s—oh shit!” John’s voice comes from the door.

I cringe. Shit. “Hi,” I squeak over my shoulder.

He shuts the door behind him and chuckles. “Are you gonna turn around or talk to me with your back to me all night?”

“I…uh…I need my robe.”

“No,” he says huskily.

I force myself to turn around. The moment I do, his eyes dart to mine suddenly. I grin inwardly, knowing that they were staring at my ass just a second earlier. I can see the coiled tension in his body, the stiff set of his jaw and I know he’s struggling to keep his gaze on my eyes and not elsewhere. If I was any other girl, he wouldn’t bother. It makes me feel bad, like I’m teasing him or something.

“You can look,” I tell him.

But he still doesn’t. In fact, he slaps his hand over his eyes. “Shit, Nicki. I…uh…why are you wearing…that?”

“Can you remove your hand and look at me?”

He shakes his head.

“Fine.” I take a deep breath and perch on the edge of the bed. “Nothing happened after our kiss the other day. No nightmares. Nothing.”

“Really?” he asks, intrigued.

“Yeah.”

“And?” he presses.

“I don’t know if it was a mistake to you, or what. If you’ve been avoiding me, or whether I’ve subconsciously been avoiding you or something. I wanted to clear it up tonight.”

“There’s something else,” he accuses.

Dammit, he knows me too well. “I…uh…will you…touch me?”

His hand falls away and his gaze snaps to mine. “What?”

I climb onto the bed and ease myself back against the pillows, hoping I don’t actually look as awkward as I feel.

He shakes his head. “Nicki…”

“It was a mistake, wasn’t it?” I ask, suddenly embarrassed as hell. I pull the covers up to shield myself. “Oh crap,” I mumble. “Can you leave and give me a second to get dressed and then we’ll talk this out?”

“No,” he says. Before I know it, he’s climbing onto the other side of the bed. “That’s not what I meant. I just wanted you to know that you don’t have to do this.”

“I want to,” I say, pushing the covers aside.

This time, his eyes are all over me. “Nicki, once you give me the green light, I’m not sure I’m gonna be able to stop.”

Oh my God. I swallow hard and tell him, “I want you to touch me.”

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.

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 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.
