Nothing else to say.
HOW the hell did I not read T Gephart before?????
I’m lying of course because, as usual, I have something to say! But I am scratching my head this morning wondering how on earth I missed her. I started this yesterday but stayed up until the early hours of this morning to finish it. One hit, I could not put it down. I’ve been a little bored and jaded lately when reading rockers, bikers and billionaires because the whole bloody market is so over saturated, quantity of choice but not always so much quality so to come across not only a book that was such addictive reading when I had no expectations at all was a surprise, for it to be a rocker book just shows its calibre, this is going to be a favourite without doubt. The book and the author.
So what’s it all about?
Ashlyn Murphy was not living the dream. Twenty-seven years old, college educated, up to her eyeballs in debt and yet she’d been relegated to pouring beers at a local bar. She desperately needed an out and was willing to do anything to get back into the corporate world. Well, almost anything. Dan Evans, Rock Star was NOT one of those things. In fact she despised him. Apparently he didn’t get the memo.
Dan Evans, bass player of international rock band Power Station had it all. He was rich, travelled the world, played to millions of adoring fans and had no shortage of beautiful women willing to share his bed. He didn’t need a moody redheaded knockout with a superiority complex complicating his life. Or did he?Read more ›
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.
4.5 Entertaining, Steamy Stars!
This is a new author to me and this book was suggested by a friend. She told me it was funny and I’d definitely be impressed by the story. She wasn’t wrong. In fact, after reading the first chapter, I knew I had a rare gem in my hands. I was hooked! I absolutely couldn't put it down. I laughed, I tensed up, I got the swoon-worthy butterflies and when I was done, I had the biggest grin on my face. I loved the characters. I loved the story. And I loved the originality!
A broker by right but a bar waitress for now, Ashlyn Murphy lost her dream job when the market crashed and has been waiting on the drunken populace for way too long. As the bills stack higher and her dream seems to be drifting further away, she patiently awaits her second chance to prove to herself that all that college education wasn’t for nothing. Gearing up for an interview to be an assistant to the rock band, Power Station, certainly isn’t her calling but its a step in the right direction... if only she can pass the interview. Little does she know, that day will change everything for her strained and simple life.
Dan Evans, manwhore and partier extraordinaire, is the base player for his band whose popularity has skyrocketed, leaving Dan more than capable to bed any woman he wants... except the one who instantly captured his attention with her biting tongue and unimpressed attitude. Dan’s never met a woman he couldn’t woo out of her overpriced panties but Ashlyn isn’t interested and that only makes Dan determined to win her over.Read more ›

I really enjoyed this book. It wasn't like the typical Rockstar book that focused so much on the Rockstar's sex lives. There was certainly some in there but not the focus. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
