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.
Book two of the Power Station series.
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.
