I mostly liked this book.
Dan was a good character even if I didn't like him that much in the beginning. He was pretty crude--which I don't mind--but, at times, his sexual innuendos and humor were kind of relentless. Later in the story, when he also showed a calmer and more serious side, it gave more depth to his character and made him more believable.
He was definitely an acquired taste but one I really liked in the end.
Ashlyn was kind of a bitch, but she balanced out Dan's outrageousness--kind of reined him in. The only thing that bothered me was that there seemed to be no basis in her past for her fears. What motivated her to build this Future Life Path to Success? I know she was the first of her family to go to college, but her family wasn't living in poverty. She wasn't escaping abuse, she had people to fall back on who loved her. There wasn't any kind of shameful scandal she needed to atone for by living a conventional, boring life.
I just didn't get her motivation for a lot of her actions--especially when her relationship with Dan hit a crisis. It was really mostly her doing and she based it on the flimsiest of reasons. She never even said she was afraid, though that, at least, might have explained what she did.
It just didn't ring true for me and kind of messed with my enjoyment of the book. Poor plot development.
In any case, they get their HEA and there's no cliffhanger.
However, there's also no epilogue. I still have questions which I doubt will be answered in the next book as, I assume, the next book is about someone else.
I mean, what happened to Rob?
Don't they work together? Is he going to be weird or vindictive?
What will Ashlyn and Dan do when he goes on tour?
Some of us would like some further clarification, Ms. Gephart, please!!
Kind of feels like a cliffhanger even though there isn't one.
Dan Evans was the bass player for the famous Power Station band. He was gorgeous, sexy, humorous and confident. He had everything he wanted and more. Ashlyn Murphy was a college educated, out of work financial analyst. She was beautiful and snarky. She was currently bar tending and looking for work in her field. She had a life plan that included hard work, priorities and having people in her life that aligned with her life plan.
Dan and Ashlyn were complete opposites. They crossed paths and sparks flew immediately, albeit annoying sparks that exclaimed they would never be friends. At first I didn't like either one of them. Dan was rude, a total man whore and had no filter. Ashlyn was a judgmental snob. However, once we got passed the first several interactions, they both grew on me and I eventually loved them together.
The sole focus of the storyline was the relationship. Gephart took us through the introduction, chase and relationship development including the good, the bad and the ugly. It was entertaining; yet I craved additional depth and dimension. Diving into the details of working, whether the details of the band, bar tending or being a financial analyst would have worked for me.
Additionally, there were quite a few editing errors, such as missing or extra words and incorrect tense, that it was distracting at times. For this, I rated it a 3.5 instead of a 4.
Gephart included a great cast of supporting characters that set the stage for the rest of the series. I thoroughly enjoyed the band members and look forward to more.
All in all, it was a fast, entertaining and sexy read. I'll definitely back track and read the Lexi series as well as continue forward with Power Station. Troy, the bands drummer, and Meg, Ashlyn's best friend, are next on the horizon. Based on the teasers from book one, there's promise for a great addition to the series.
