High Strung (Power Station #1) by T. Gephart

High Strung (Power Station #1) by T. Gephart
This is an adult contemporary romance (Rated NC-17)
 (Five Knock 'em out the Park Hearts)
Book Summary
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
My first book by this author and I was highly impressed. It was recommended by a friend of mine who always recs books to me that knock them out of the park. Thanks Amy!
This was a great book without the needs of contrived plots to get the heart racing. This story was unpretentious and refreshing.  And guess what?  Laugh Out Loud funny! And I mean that. Because I didn’t find some other so called funny books, funny at all. I’ve read and seen too much to be easily brought to laughter by lines used by comics over the centuries. Not the case here. I was laughing my head off.
Let’s get to the characters. DAN, DAN, DAN. I love him. And guess what, his name is DAN, not some made up let’s try to be different kind of name. And that about sums it up. This book is good because it didn’t try to be anything but. Okay, back to Dan. Dan is a bad boy in a realistic, I don’t need therapy after reading kind of way. He was a bad boy who didn’t make bones about who he is or blame childhood drama on being a man. And he’s funny. His one liners are excellent.
And Ashlyn got points for not being dim witted, struck by hotness that she becomes a mess when he’s not who she wants him to be kind of girl. I like her strength.
And the story was a cold drink on a hot summer’s day and let me tell you. You will need that cold drink because this book gets hot. Anyway, READ already. So good. It’s worth it, promise.
