High Strung (Power Station, #1) written by T. Gephart (260 pgs) – finished reading 1/22/15 – 4.5 stars - Contemporary Romance

When Ashlyn Murphy meets Dan Evans for the first time, she can’t stand him. He’s so full of himself and such an arrogant jerk. They’re just too opposite. She’s a college educated young woman waiting for her dream job, and he’s a bass player for a rock band that trots around the globe. What will happen if this unlikely pair get together as a couple? Will they have a chance of making it work?

This was a fun read that had me laughing out loud during some of this couple’s comical bantering moments. Ashlyn could definitely give it as good as she got it, and Dan with his potty mouth, said some of the most outrageous stuff. He was one entertaining dude!

“What’s wrong with muffins?” Troy scoffed. Poor f**ker had no clue. “It’s like a poor man’s cupcake. No frosting. So f**king dry. I’m putting something cake like in my mouth then I want it to be sweet and f**king tasty. Not some lame-ass muffin that has all the promise of goodness and then leaves you unsatisfied. It’s like a girl who stuffs her bra to make her tits look bigger and then you get her home and boom, no big tits. I hate false advertising man, makes me angry.” ~ Dan (Chap. 8)

Dan Evans is just one of those types of characters that you can’t help but love. He’s funny and cocky, and of course, gorgeous with dark hair and dark eyes while displaying colorful tattoos. He’s a badass sexy rocker. and he knows it too. Now Ashlyn, she’s one tough cookie. Smart, beautiful, and determined. She takes no shit from anyone. She doesn’t know whether or not to let Dan into her life at the moment because she has an agenda right now. But, uggghhh, it’s just so like Dan to push himself in without being invited.

This was one rockin’ book! I really enjoyed it! And, the hotness, well let’s just say it was off-the-charts sizzling!!! Dan and Ashlyn together was intensely erotic. Dan was oftentimes tenderly kind towards Ashlyn too. He was just so damn cute!! This one hooked me right in from page one and didn’t let up until I turned the last page. It was my first read written by T. Gephart, and it won’t be my last. I highly recommend reading it!!!

“Life isn’t about the perfect plan. It’s about the perfect storm that engulfs you when you’re busy living it.” ~ Ashlyn (Chap. 28)
