High Strung by T. Gephart

Book Blurb

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. 

My Review

★★★ 3.5 Stars ★★★

A funny and steamy read, this is the first in a new series which follows rock band Power Station.

Dan Evans is the base guitarist and he is laid back, inappropriate, witty and often a bit clueless.

Ashlyn Murphy is down on her luck, living in a crappy apartment and working in a bar after losing her Wall St job, she is not looking for love when she meets Dan at a job interview.

Dan is used to women falling at his feet, so the fact that Ashlyn doesn’t even know who he is makes her that much more easy to become friends with.

“There was something about this girl and I couldn’t get enough.
She wasn’t like the ones I usually met, she didn’t give a shit about me being Dan Evans and she sure as hell wasn’t shy about telling me.

They start off with a love/hate relationship which quickly turns into friends with benefits, but the easy banter and crazy chemistry ensure that their feelings escalate into something more.
_ _ _ _

I loved the banter, it was an easy book to read and if it were not for the last 15% I would have enjoyed it a whole lot more. Ashlyn and her random misunderstanding did not seem to fit – she was a feisty woman and I didn’t quite understand her sudden change in personality from confident to insecure.

Looking forward to reading about bandmates Troy and Jase.

This is a standalone novel, told in dual POV.
