Synopsis

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?

When two people who couldn’t be more opposite cross paths, it’s bound to be explosive; sometimes all you can do is sit back and enjoy the show.

Book one of the Power Station series.

    4.5-Wow-this-book-is-funny-stars!

    When a book starts off the way this one does, you know it can only be a great story. I was torn between laughing at the predicament Ashlyn found herself in at her job interview and groaning in embarrassment in sympathy with her. Initially I wasn't sure what to do because apparently there was another series featuring characters mentioned in the first couple of pages that I hadn't met yet. I was worried I would be lost reading this book, but thankfully I wasn't. Before I knew it the story had grabbed my attention and all my fears melted away. The chemistry between the main characters is electric and I was either laughing or fanning myself from the heat the two of them gave off. I have a feeling if you pick up the book you'll be doing the same. It was fun seeing Dan and Ashlyn bait and one up each other when it came to insults. I didn't think Dan has a chance with Ashlyn, regardless of how much he protested she said, when Ash did some stuff that totally changed the mood of the whole book for the better. She threw herself, Dan, and me for a loop. I really liked Ashlyn. She's honest, hard working, caring, and a great friend. I understood her reticence at giving her budding friendship with Dan any sort of title due to his fame and reputation. While Dan might be a total bad boy, I was surprised by the depths in his character. For someone who is un-repentantly and unapologetically himself, seeing Dan want to change the dynamic of his relationship with Ashlyn was satisfying. It's not that he changed himself for her, but her realized what the difference between Ashlyn and everyone else was. It was truly like the two complemented each other. I liked how really faced the challenge they faced that tested their relationship. Dan made a mistake and I understood Ash's response. I really wanted to shake Dan but then again I wanted to shake Ash too for being so stubborn and semi-reckless. I liked how Dan gave her the space she asked for when the separation was tearing them both up on the inside. The book really flew by. I may have already mentioned the laughter this book caused me, but it was so worth being looked at when I giggled, chortled, or snorted while reading it. I'm so glad I finally got a chance to read this book. I'm seriously going to be looking into the Lexi series because I have to know what happens between Lexi and Alex. It sounds like a fabulous read. I'm so glad I was able to finally read a book by T Gephart. She's written one of my favorite band books. If you're looking for a book to make you laugh and swoon, with a bad boy who doesn't know why he enjoyed snuggling, definitely check out Power Station and this book!

    AMAZING

    HIGH STRUNG (POWER STATION #1) – T GEPHART High Strung I found to be a funny touching romance. Poor Dan Evans bad boy rocker from the band Power Station falls for goodie goodie Ashlyn, the only one to every say no to him. Ashlyn and Dan run into one another a couple of times and Dan shows he has a sensitive and that he can be caring. They start to spend time together and against their better judgment they fall in love. Things do not run smooth for our lovers as chuckle worthy as the interaction between the two is at one point in the story I did start to tear up. Hats off to T. Gephart I look forward to reading the rest of this series. I would be more than happy to recommend this to any reader over 18. A lovely romance series. After receiving this Arc for an honest review I can honestly say I was not disappointed

    Great

    Another great story by this great writer. It's a change that the main female character are so dominate in stead of the male

    I loved this story :)

    I have no idea what possessed me not to read anything by T. Gephart up till now. I've met her at few signings and I was always thinking that I should read some of her books because she is so awesome in person but somehow that never happened up till now. And let me tell you. I am so glad I corrected my mistake. I simply loved High Strung and the Power Station crew :) The story is definitely intriguing, well written and full with heartbreaking and comedic scenes that balance each other quite well. The characters are also amazing. They are not perfect and have their own flaws that make them feel real :) 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.
