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
This is a heart filling and breaking novel all in one. This book to me has a lot more emotional depth than High Strung. The funniest are in full flight and I think for these two characters to get over their hangups and finally be together properly, there needs to be some light heartedness.
Gephart’s writing is a style I really like. It’s fluid, it’s an easy read and it’s thoroughly enjoyable. Crash Ride focuses on the best friend of Ashlyn from book one, Megan Winters. I loved Megan from High Strung. I’m so glad she hasn’t lost any of her wit or neurosis. I love her thought process. She’s quite a deviant but in a non-offensive way.
Megan’s craziness is coupled beautifully with the sweet natured Troy Harris (and shall only be known as Troy Harris). I love how his character was written – he’s rough but tender, sweet but complex. Dare I say it, Troy Harris has elevated himself to one of my favourite rockers. When he finally gets it through his head what he wants, the roles change. He is the one pursuing Megan.
I don’t normally like passive aggressive but Gephart pulls this one off with just enough drama. I love the reappearance of the characters from book one and Dan hasn’t lost any of his attitude and still makes me laugh out loud.
I was a bit blindsided by the developments and enjoyed the high while it lasted. The subject and time frame within the story holds a very close hold to my heart and shared in their devastation. This series is ticking all the boxes for me and my rocker romance desires.
Gephart is a new author to me and I’m keen to read more of her works.
