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.
Ash had a plan on how her life would be and who she would marry but all those plans went out the door when she met Dan the bass player for the band Power Station. He played the part that Ash had in her mind of a typical rock star. Dan saw a feisty woman her knew would change his world.
This does have a HEA but only after they find what they truly want from each other. Relationships have ups and downs in life as you just need to fight for what you want. Sometimes they work out and sometimes they don't.
On to the next one in the series as I know I will love it also!!
We meet Ashlyn, a girl who's living a mundane existence in a world where things could be a lot better, but unfortunately she is anything but happy. Her job, where she lives, and life in general just seem blah. She is striving toward betterment, but cannot land that dream job even though she has tried so hard.
In steps our rock god and hero Dan Evans, bassist for the internationally successful band Power Station. He is adored by his fans and has absolutely no trouble landing a girl. His life is missing that one thing, but he just has no idea. I have to say here that Dan is your typical, big headed, cocky, arrogant Rock Star who from the start I thought had no redeeming characters. How wrong was I. Dan is all kinds of wrong and when Ashlyn and Dan meet the chemistry is off the chart and Dan has no idea what he is doing. Ashlyn's relationship with Dan is really all about a love/hate relationship. She cannot get her head around how she feels about him at all. Dan can't seem to keep away from Ashlyn, and that includes just sleeping with her and no sex in the beginning. I loved this part of the book as they were getting to know each other, but that soon changed of course.
I found this book refreshing and honest, and although I found the beginning a little slow and the end too quick, that did not take away the enjoyment from this book. I really loved the angst in the storyline toward the end, and I would have liked to have read a little more. I never cry reading books, but I did find this one a little tear-jerker toward the end. Ashlyn showed her feelings of inadequacy well when Dan made a mistake. It really showed me how sensitive she was and I loved the drama and angst that came from that.
This was a fun book for me and Dan really redeemed himself as the book went on, as a matter of fact Dan rocked my world. Loved this book and give it a well deserved five-star rating. Well done T. Gephart, I will be reading the rest of the books in this series :)
