SERIES: Book One of Power Station Series.RELEASE DATE: October 10, 2014
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.

Being a big fan of “Rocker” books, I was quite excited when the chance to review this book fell into my lap.
The story mainly revolves around two main characters. Ashlyn Murphy, a twenty-seven year old single gal who moved from Boston to the Big Apple, New York City. Stepping off the Greyhound bus with big ideas, Ashlyn has found a job in a brokerage firm. Three years later she’s living in a small, run down flat in a rough part of town after being made redundant. After pounding the pavement and scouring the Internet for work, she finally lands an interview that will change her life forever.
Enter bad boy Dan Evans bass player for the rock band Power Station. Charming, cheeky and loveable. Loves the ladies and the ladies love him!
I thought Dan was going to be one of those bad ass rockers who has a reputation that comes hand in hand with Rock stars. Sadly this was not the case with Dan. Yes, to me Dan was cheeky, but not nearly as naughty as I wanted him to be.
When Ashlyn and Dan Meet for the first time, she’s not even sure that she likes him. However, as the story unfolds, no matter how hard she fights it there’s something exciting about being pursued by a rocker. And their attraction towards each other grows. Life is perfect for the couple even though I had that funny feeling that it was just too perfect. I was waiting for something to happen and disappointed, I was not! A misunderstanding that I won’t go into, causes the couple to go their separate ways for a while.
But true love avails and their mixed up signals trickle away into insignificance.
This book is well written, the story line very good; nevertheless, I personally would have liked to have seen a bit more of an edge to these rockers. More bad ass please!
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
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.
