Rating:  4 Groupie Stars Rating


Lexi is a successful PR manager for a multinational firm, based in Melbourne, Australia. She is an energetic and impulsive soul whose passions sometimes control her life. Through a twist of fate she is chosen to represent a famous client, catapulting her into a new life in New York – fulfilling her in a way that she had never imagined.
When Lexi meets Alex, sparks fly. Their chemistry is explosive and they can’t get enough of each other. Her role as the PR manager for his band, Power Station, means that they have to keep their arrangement secret and this proves to be a complication for both of them.
The story follows the twists and turns of six months in Lexi’s life, exploring the complicated rules she creates to govern her relationships and the friends that help her realize that life is more fun when you throw out the rulebook and that love is a major part of being happy.

Lexi is a loud mouthed, take no prisoners, tell-it-like-is woman.  She knows what she wants and goes for it, everyone else be damned! Lexi was destroyed by a man when she was in college and has vowed to never let that happen again.  She throws men away after one night like you would bad takeout and doesn't think twice about it.  She isn't the "relationship" type and isn't afraid to lay it out for the guy without evening batting an eyelash.  She has helped her friend, Kate from the ground up with her PR company, but is feeling the glass ceiling.  After a long night at work gone wrong, she meets the one man that might be a bigger challenge than she can handle...or actually make her want what she has been running away from, a relationship.

"I was slightly unnerved by his loaded had been awhile since I had been challenged by a man. This was going to be fun."

Let's talk about the hot guitarist Alex!! A blonde, blue-eyed, God that has abs for days!  Not to count the numerous ways to make a woman feel "good", if you know what mean!!  He used to getting his way and he wants Lexi.  Alex doesn't care in what capacity, he just know that he needs to make Lexi his.  

"I want you in whatever capacity you are willing to give yourself to me."

When Lexi meets her one huge crush from her favorite band, it's all she can do to keep her pants on. Once the clothes are off, it's on!! But Lexi wants Alex to know that their "encounters" are nothing more than that, "encounters."  No staying the night, no feelings, no labels. Their "encounters" are HOT HOT HOT!!  Slamming backs against the wall, hours long marathons that would rival any marathon runner!! Amazingly, they are able to keep their professionalism around the other band members and friends.  No one else is the wiser of what's going on between them.  The banter between Alex and Lexi through text always made me laugh.  They had some of their best conversations sans texting.

"Want to race?" Lexi xx
"Are you insane?  I'll be at your apartment before you hit second gear.  I love your enthusiasm though.  10 points for effort! Alex xx"

 Everything was going great until feelings got involved.  Lexi doesn't want that and can't open up to Alex and tell him why.  The character development was great and the interactions between the other band members made you love them just as much.  Here's to hoping they all get their own story!!  Can Lexi and Alex work the kinks out or will Lex's reservations ruin the best thing that has ever happened to her?

"I won't be hurt again.  I won't lose my sense of self, be isolated, be consumed, be discarded again."

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 travelled 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 who didn't lack femininity. Out of this need, she decided to pen her first book, A Twist of Fate. 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 colourful 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.
T self-published her first novel through Smashwords, is about to release her second novel on the same platform and is currently writing the third book in the Lexi Trilogy.
