Dan and Ash are definitely two quite unique characters. I enjoyed their interactions so much and I had so much fun reading how their relationship develops :D Some of their time together was just hilarious :D Ash is a very confident women with a 10 year plan what her life is supposed to be. She has her mind set on everything. From the job she will have to the man she is going to marry. And love is not a part of all that. Well, as all well thought plans, hers doesn't work as well. And at fault is one very sexy bass player with a passion for chasing women and a dirty mouth that can either piss you off or increase you temperature from 0 to 100 in exactly 0.3 seconds :D If you haven't figured it out by now, I am talking about one Dan Evans, the bass player of Power Station. He is pretty much everything Ash despises but somehow she cannot stay away. And with every minute she spends with him, her opinion of the bad boy changes little by little :)
Dan is pretty much the ultimate example of a bad boy rock star :) He has a dirty mouth, different girl in his arms every night and pretty much doesn't care about all the bad publicity he creates with his exploits :D Well, all that changes the moment he meets one Ashlyn Murphy. Somehow she manages to catch his eye and convert the bad boy into a devoted boyfriend in the span of few seconds :) The moment he sees her, Dan knows that she is different and that there is an undeniable connection between them. And thanks to faith he gets the chance to show her that he can be a different man, her perfect other half :) Of course that doesn't happen without a healthy dose of tears and laughs. And of course we shouldn't forget the help of their best friend :)
Talking about the best friends, I really loved Troy and Megs and I can't wait to read their story in Crash Ride. I definitely think that it will be another great book :)
So in a few words, I really enjoyed this story. It is not the usual romantic suspense book I love but it was still a great read. I am definitely glad that I finally picked a book by T. Gephart. It was one of the best decisions I've made lately :) I am immediately diving in the next book of the series :) I simply need to find out what will happen between Troy and Megs. They are such fun characters :) In case you haven't read any of T Gephart's books up till now, I think that High Strung will be definitely a good start. Although, you might want to start with the Lexy Series, as it actually tell's the story of another of the band members and it is the one that also introduces all the characters. In my case, I will be diving into those books once I am done with the power station ones :) And just because I loved this story, I will finish my review in a somewhat different way this time and give you my favorite quote of the book :)
"I had spent my life up until this point planning for perfection, avoiding the extraordinary, and playing it safe. I thought it would make me happy and give me a good life. What I couldn't have planned for, was meeting a man who was so exceptional it would redefine my expectations.
Life isn't about the perfect plan. It's about the perfect storm that engulfs you when you're busy living it."
This review was originally posted at Living In Our Own Story Book Blog. I received an ARC of the book in exchange of an honest review.
Bit of a spoiler, but continue to read if you want to know my opinion of why I don't think you should waste your time.
To make conflicts, the author had Ashlyn get ridiculously and embarrassingly jealous over a girl and a little boy who were in Dan's apartment that she thought were a girlfriend and son that he didn't tell her about. She didn't give him time to explain, rather just stormed off without him even knowing at first while she berated him insider her head for his infidelity, but they weren't even officially dating so how she considered him to not be faithful is beyond me. Another incident happened where she lost it on him because he had a girl that works for his band's PR firm at his apartment. He was giving her an innocent hug and was saying thank you when Ashlyn walked in. Now I will say that he had sex with this girl, but Ashlyn didn't know that at first. She proceeded to interrogate him about this other girl and it's too much to explain the even more ridiculous turmoil she was swirling about in this situation, but it was irritating to read because Ashlyn knew he was a total man whore when she met him. The second night she met him he was ready to take two girls home with him and she was more than aware of this so for her to lose her sh!t over that incident and call it off had me seething. To make it worse, she found out he had helped her get a job with the help of his "co-worker" just by putting in a word with a friend and that made her seal the deal that they just couldn't be together because he didn't have enough faith in her talent to think she could find her own job. Well lets see... she had been working at a bar for 1.5 years and couldn't find any job that was worthy because she was too educated. Most people would be smothering Dan with kisses for being so sweet to only put in a word so that a friend of a friend might get Ashlyn an interview that was up to her to nail. And she did, but that was still not enough for Ashlyn.
Last, but certainly not least is the typos. Oh let me count the number of typos. I can't because there were too many!!!!!
Update on typos, the author replied to my review of the book series (which is what I actually purchased) and I give her major kudos because she was VERY diplomatic explaining she appreciated I had an opinion and the book didn't resinate with me. The good news is my review revealed to her that the wrong version of the book was published. She advised the corrected version of this book is now published. I still don't like the h which is unfortunate because had she not been so over the top in her jealousy reactions and the stick up her arse, I would have given this book at least a 4 because Dan was so awesome!
