Good times didn’t last forever. While Beth Hart had enjoyed being the sometimes girlfriend of Max Reynolds—the hot bass player for Black Addiction—she knew it would never be more than a casual fling. He was destined for greatness, and she cared too much to hold him back. So, before she lost her heart and her sanity, she said goodbye to the Bronx, moved to Manhattan and left her party-girl days in the past—along with Max.

Nothing made Max happier than being a success in his own right. And in the last few years, he and his band had well and truly earned it. Moving to the city and enjoying the spoils of his new lifestyle made perfect sense, and he loved his new address. It wasn’t his new huge penthouse apartment that got him excited; it was his new neighbor. The one girl he regretted letting go—Beth.

He wanted her back and would do anything to make it happen. Hopefully it wasn’t too late.

Kristys Review (2)

3 3_4 Stars

So I have been a vocal fan of T.Gephart since I discovered High Strung a while back (yes my Dan Evans addiction is still in full force.) And when the Power Station ended I jumped right onto the Black Addiction bandwagon.  Rusty was first and I loved him, then came Joey (hehe I said came…Joey would appreciate that) and I LOVED him. And last but not least we have Max.

Max is a great guy, sweet, protective and determined….all the good stuff. Beth is great too. She’s completely independent, smart, and very chill. Their relationship for years has been off again on again, but they always remained friends. But they’ve lost touch for a long time now and neither is thinking about the other when they suddenly find themselves face to face. Turns out they really suck at staying away from each other.

I liked this book. It was sweet and cute and Max was definitely swoonworthy. It was nice to see the band again and to watch Max get his happy ending (Literally and figuratively). This book is a quick, fun, slightly slapstick read. It’s not covering any new territory, you aren’t going to cry or scream or curse. Very low angst. What you are going to get is a sweet romance and a fitting end to a really lovable series. Definitely worth the read especially for Black Addiction fans.


Prologue – Beth

It was the calm before the storm.
Neither of us had spoken about it last night, both too caught up in each other to care what it all meant. He was irresistible and I saw no reason to fight the urge. No matter how many times we drifted apart, we always seemed to end up back together. Maybe it was sheer magnetism, maybe it was his amazing smile? Or maybe it was his delicious well-toned body that did amazing things to mine? It could have been any of those reasons, but mostly it was because of the way he made me feel.
Some of my best memories featured the man sleeping soundly beside me. And it wasn’t even about the sex, although . . . yeah, his talents weren’t only restricted to the stage. There was just something about him. Something bigger than what he already was, and I knew living in the Bronx and working at Staples wasn’t his destiny.
Sadly, neither was I.
International rock sensation Power Station had seen it too, signing up Black Addiction—Max’s band—to be their support act for a huge stadium tour. They’d already wowed the crowds at Madison Square Garden, the other crowds would follow too and then the world would see what I already knew.
Max Reynolds was a rock star.
We’d taken a break from each other around three months ago. No messy break up, no drama—just our lives taking us in different directions. It wasn’t a new thing for us, and in some ways, it just worked. But last night wasn’t us getting back together; last night was something else entirely.
His eyes were shut tight as he slept, completely unaware as I watched him. His perfect lips parted just slightly as the air whistled past. And I knew this would be the last time we could do this; at some point we’d stop the revolving door.
“Hey.” He slid open an eye, his trademark panty-melting grin not far behind. “You’re awake. Feeling okay?”
“Yep, I know better than to try and keep up with you and your band.” I couldn’t help but smile back. “How about you? You had a pretty serious commitment with that bottle of Jäger.” Don’t know why I asked; I’d never seen him rocking the next morning regret like most of us did.
“Never felt better.” He smirked, his fingers trailing up my side, tickling my skin until they reached my breast. His talented fingers palmed me, hinting that he had other things on his mind other than his lack of hangover. “And my only commitment last night was pleasing you. So, tell me . . . how did I do?”
God, he was smooth.
He had this uncanny ability to make you feel like you were the only woman in the room, like nothing else mattered, and even if I knew it was temporary, I loved it.
“I think you got all the confirmation you needed last night.” I grinned as I nestled into his side. “If you want your ego stroked, you’ll have to go elsewhere.”
“That’s not what I want you to stroke, Beth,” he whispered into my ear, his voice loaded with suggestion.
“I should probably go.” It’s not that I didn’t want to stay, but it didn’t take a rocket scientist to know where this would end up. Sleep was not part of that equation.
“Why? Stay in bed with me.” His muscular, inked arms caged me against his body, the heat between us having nothing to do with the temperature in the room. “I’m almost positive you won’t regret it.”
I wouldn’t regret it.
I never would.
But in my heart I knew that this was the end of the road for the two of us. And as much as I wanted to keep going by his side, he had to walk it alone. How much longer could I stay? A week, a month, a year? He needed to be single. Free to do whatever he wanted to do when that spotlight finally hit him and not wonder if it would have been different without a girlfriend ball-and-chain. I wouldn’t be the source of anyone’s regrets, not least someone as special as Max. He was on the cusp of something great, and I cared too much to hold him back.
“You need sleep, you have a show tonight.” My hands moved over his chest. “We both know if I stay, there will be no sleep.” I tried in vain to free myself from his arm prison, my attempt laughable as he pulled me closer.
“Sleep’s overrated.” The words vibrated against my ear as I closed my eyes and remembered the moment. The one that would be the last time in his arms.
“You might not be dealing with a hangover, but you can’t outrun fatigue. Sleep and I’ll see you when you get back in town.”
It was a lie, an easy one to tell, knowing that when he came back things would be different. We would be different, and I think deep down he knew it was goodbye.
“Beth.” His lips pressed against the back of my neck, my short black hair offering me little protection as his hot breath defied logic and gave me goose bumps. “We’ll always end up like this, you and me.”
Not always, not anymore.
I didn’t dare say it. More because I didn’t want to hear it even though I knew it was the right thing to do.
“You going to let me go?” I asked, his arms showing no sign of releasing me
“For now.” He kissed my neck before loosening his hold and allowing me to sit up.
“You’re going to do great on this tour; this is what you’ve been waiting for.” I didn’t have to even force the smile on my face, I was genuinely happy for him. “Your life is about to change.”
“Whatever happens, happens.” His arms flexed and anchored at the back of his neck. “I’m still going to be me, that won’t ever change.”
“Good.” I fished my T-shirt from the edge of the bed and threw it over my head. “And I’ll be your biggest fan.” It was an easy promise to make; being supportive was something that I planned to continue. And something I could do even if it wasn’t by his side.
“Just promise you won’t get all weird and start stealing my underwear to sell on eBay.” He watched me as I slid on my own and grabbed my jeans from the floor.
“So, I should put back the pair I have stuffed into my purse?” I turned back to face him as I pulled up my jeans, batting my eyes seductively for effect.
I hadn’t actually stolen a pair of his boxer briefs, but it was easier than the inevitable so-this-is-where-it-ends that needed to happen.
“Call me, Beth.” He didn’t hesitate, his eyes looking directly into mine. It was as if he already knew that I probably wouldn’t but wouldn’t push the issue either. It was a weird stalemate, so much left unsaid, but all those words not spoken completely understood.
“See ya, Max.” I allowed myself one last look at him before scooping up my shoes and shuffling out of the room. The door closed behind me giving me a resting place for a second before I walked out of his house.
We both needed this. It wasn’t just for him; this was for me too. Together neither of us would reach our full potential, and we owed each other that. I was more than just a bass player’s girlfriend. I was more than a girl with tattoos, funky hair and a short skirt. If I stayed . . . he was too easy to fall in love with.
There was no sadness when I left; my heart wasn’t breaking. I was excited about what the future held for both of us and while I’d miss him, someday we would both be thankful.
In time we would both move on, and hopefully when he thought of me, he’d remember good things.
I would always, when I thought of him.

Author Bio

T Gephart is an indie author from Melbourne, Australia.T’s approach to life has been somewhat unconventional. Rather than going to University, she jumped on a plane to Los Angeles, USA in search of adventure. While this first trip left her somewhat underwhelmed and largely depleted of funds it fueled her appetite for travel and life experience.

With a rather eclectic resume, which reads more like the fiction she writes than an actual employment history, T struggled to find her niche in the world.

While on a subsequent trip the United States in 1999, T met and married her husband. Their whirlwind courtship and interesting impromptu convenience store wedding set the tone for their life together, which is anything but ordinary. They have lived in Louisiana, Guam and Australia and have traveled extensively throughout the US. T has two beautiful young children and one four legged child, Woodley, the wonder dog.

An avid reader, T became increasingly frustrated by the lack of strong female characters in the books she was reading. She wanted to read about a woman she could identify with, someone strong, independent and confident and who didn’t lack femininity. Out of this need, she decided to pen her first book, A Twist of Fate. T set herself the challenge to write something that was interesting, compelling and yet easy enough to read that was still enjoyable. Pulling from her own past “colorful” experiences and the amazing personalities she has surrounded herself with, she had no shortage of inspiration. With a strong slant on erotic fiction, her core characters are empowered women who don’t have to sacrifice their femininity. She enjoyed the process so much that when it was over she couldn’t let it go.

T loves to travel, laugh and surround herself with colorful characters. This inevitably spills into her writing and makes for an interesting journey – she is well and truly enjoying the ride!

Based on her life experiences, T has plenty of material for her books and has a wealth of ideas to keep you all enthralled.

Back Stage (Power Station #3) by T. Gephart

Rock Star? Angie Morelli was not one. Growing up next to Power Station’s drummer didn’t guarantee a taste of the limelight, unless you count catcalls at low paying gigs in seedy bars and second-rate venues. She was okay with that; working her ass off at her dad’s mechanic shop during the day meant she could live her dream at night. She didn’t need Power Station waltzing back into her life, Jason Irwin had done enough damage the first time. Could she let go of her hurt for a chance of hitting the big time?

A one-night stand right before Jason Irwin left for his big break was no big deal. Except it wasn’t just any girl— it was Angie, Troy’s hot but young and inexperienced neighbor. It should never have happened, so best he pretend like it didn’t. Ten years later he remembered exactly why he went down that road. She was even hotter and she was also pissed as hell. Sounded like the perfect combination to invite on their world tour.

The road was not the place for history. It was bound to get ugly.

5 Star Review

At this point I would have to say I consider myself a bit of a Power Station groupie and this final book in the series definitely fed my fangirl addiction. The author finishes off this series with a bang that will not disappoint and she introduces a new band that will leave you hoping for just a little bit more.

Angie and Jason have a history that for ten years has left him feeling guilty and her pissed as hell. So when her band ends up as the opening act on Power Station’s tour neither one of them are exactly thrilled. But of course, the attraction is still there and pretty soon the oil and water of their relationship changes to gasoline and a lit match.

Angie is one of my favorite female leads, and it’s unusual for the female lead to be the reason I love a book, but Angie is. She has it all…talent, a kick ass band, a great sense of humor and a backbone of steel. She somehow manages to be tough and vulnerable, sweet and bitter, fearless and insecure and in the end wonderfully compassionate and giving. I would love to hang out with Ash and Megs, but I would love to BE Angie.

Jace is Jace…quiet, stoic, emotionally closed off but somehow kind, protective and fun. He was hot as hell but frustrating too. He’s drawn to Angie and can’t keep himself away, but he also believes he can’t offer her anything beyond sex. Jason’s past, when he finally reveals it, changes everything, including how Angie sees him and all bets are off after that.

All of the old favorites are back in this one and I was thrilled to find that they all play a pretty big part in this book, which only made it better!! (especially Dan…my super secret douchbag crush and Troy…everybody’s favorite sweetheart!) Angie’s band…Black Addiction are a fabulous group of new characters and her best friend and band mate Rusty is a scene stealer if ever there was one(no small feat in a book that features the Power Station boys). Rusty was smart, funny and absolutely perfect..if that boy doesn’t get his own book there is just something not right in the world.

This book is the perfect finale to a group of characters you can’t help but fall in love with and the send off the author gives this band is magnificent. I’m holding out hope that the guys will be back again, especially if Rusty gets a book, but if not, I could not have wished for a better end to their story.

Crash Ride (Power Station #2) By T. Gephart

Megan Winters had lusted over Troy Harris, drummer for international rock band Power Station, for years. Not being the type of girl who was invited backstage, her fantasies had stayed just that, fantasies. When her best friend unexpectedly starts dating one of the other band members it puts her on a crash course at war with her libido. Her solution— they need to have sex. Surely once she had scratched that itch, and saw the fantasy didn’t live up to the reality she could move on. I mean, what could possibly go wrong?

Troy Harris vowed to stay away from Megs. The sexy, smart and funny blonde left his mind and his body feeling like a pretzel. No matter how attracted he was to her, she was a no-go zone. The best friend of his best friend’s girlfriend? Cue the reality show. But when she gives him the chance to have a one-night no strings good time, there was no way he could turn that down. Maybe she was right. One night, and then they could go back to being just friends.

Both of them were delusional.

4 Star Review

Another great book from T. Gephart.  This book was every bit as good as the first one, if not better.  I was afraid the story would be too similar, after a while all of these rocker books kind of seem the same, but this one was a pleasantly unique.  Megs and Troy’s story is so different from Dan and Ashlyn’s and I think that was the best surprise of all.  The beginning of the book is a trope we’ve all read, two friends decide that no-strings attached sex is a good idea when, of course we all know that will never work.  But where the story goes from there is an interesting and not at all what I expected.  Having read as many books as I have, anything that keeps me guessing is always a plus.

I really thought I couldn’t love any of the Power Station boys more than the cocky, inappropriate, slightly clueless but always a good guy…Dan.  I was wrong, Troy is so different but just as amazing.  Troy is sincere and kind and funny and hot as hell with his mohawk and his tattoos.  It awesome to have a character that is so interesting and engaging while just being a good guy.

Megs is a little neurotic, a lot obsessed with Troy Harris and pretty funny.  She’s also really smart and successful and actually has her life together, which I loved.  Megs was great in High Strung and I especially loved how she handled Dan when Ashlyn and Dan split up so watching her navigate her relationship with Troy was a pleasure.

These books are just so well written that I find them oddly relaxing and comforting.  They are just an easy read and I’ve already started the next book.  I can’t think of the last time I read three book in the same series in the same week and didn’t get bored.  This might be a first.

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.


Kristys review


I really loved this book. It was well written and really funny, like laughing out loud funny. The premise was nothing new, but the characters, especially the supporting characters and their relationships made this book a lot better than most. The Bromances among the band members were superb and surprisingly in depth which added an element that I don’t usually find in rocker books.

The hero is one of my favorite in a long time because he was such an anti-hero. Dan was a cocky, chauvinistic, sometimes dense, manwhore who took whatever woman offered him. Of course, he sees Ashlyn and is instantly intrigued, especially since she has absolutely no interest in him. What I think I liked best about Dan was, despite the fact that he was truly a good guy and that he really did care for Ashlyn, he maintained his charming arrogance and cocky sense of humor. His overblown ego stayed intact and that was somehow more endearing then if he had changed completely.  Dan is one of my very favorite, for all the wrong reasons.

Ashlyn was a great female lead. She was strong and independent, if not a little down on her luck. Right from the start Dan gets under her skin and drives her crazy, but pretty early on she figures out that under the massive ego is a pretty good guy. Her snark quickly turns from actual anger to a fun game of tit for tat with Dan. She’s one of the few heroines who manages to pull of snarky fun without seeming bitchy. Ok, sometimes she’s bitchy but she admits she is a bitch and he admits he is an asshole. It’s pretty entertaining.

I also really enjoyed the writing in this book, it just flowed. I found this to be a quick read mostly because it was so well done. Having never read this author before, I was pleasantly surprised by this one and I have already started the next book.

Give this one a try.
