✪ Train Wreck ✪ T. Gephart ✪

Title: Train Wreck
Author: T. Gephart
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: July 10, 2017

No passion, no emotion, no originalitya train wreck of epic portions.

Those were the words to describe Eve Thortons exhibition. Not even a fine arts degree from Yale or her daddys bank account could save her from the scathing reviews. And failure was a word Eve would never be comfortable with. Not even close.

Plotting the demise of every critic whod written her off was her first instinct. But that would come later. Instead, she would show them that she wasnt a bored socialite with more money than talent.

She would prove everyone wrong, and she wasnt afraid to get her hands dirty. But when her journey for redemption crashed headfirst into Josh Logan, the sexy, talented tattooist from Queens, getting her hands dirty took on a whole new meaning.

Josh was everything Eve wasnt, translating on skin what she couldnt onto her canvas. All she had to do was convince him to share his jaw-dropping brilliance, and help herseeing him nakeda bonus. Then she could go back to her regular life, vindicated.

It should have been easy. Pity her plans had a habit of derailing.


Firstly, I am not usually one to even really look at covers, but helllloooo look at those shoes.  I mean, I couldn't wear them without breaking my ankles and my neck, but they are hot!

We all have days when our lives are a bit of a train wreck, right?

Eve Thornton's train wreck is just a little more public than ours - public humiliation is never fun, right?

What I love about her though is that she is not one to sit on her ar$e and grumble about it all.  Whilst she could have done nothing but cry about it and eat ice cream and let daddy's money pay her bills, she didn't.  

Like Chumbawumba said "I get knocked down, but I get up again,  you're never gonna keep me down"

Eve starts afresh. I mean, when you are given lemons, throw them at someones head, right?  Oh wait, make lemonade *side eyes* yeah, that's what I meant.

And what a way to start anew!  From the first time Josh was on the page he was all kinds of what floats my boat!  I fell for him hook. line and sinker!

I loved the art aspect of Train Wreck, I love art, however I can't draw a stick person to look like it is supposed to.  I adored that Josh's tattoo work is portrayed more as art than just a tattoo.  I adored that Eve through herself back into her art - with a little inspiration from her tattooed hottie.

There is a great cast of secondary characters - please tell us that we will get more of Dallas and Kitty in the future?  

Train Wreck had me laughing, had me screaming at my kindle, had me crying, and had me hoping for better things for our lovelies. 

Ms Gephart drew me into the story, got me invested in the lives of the characters, and left me wanting more.

I can't wait to see what she brings us next

PS. When I was reading, the chapter art work had me thinking of bacon - every single chapter. Please tell me I am not the only one!

T Gephart is an indie author from Melbourne, Australia.

Ts 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 traveled 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 and who didnt lack femininity. Out of this need, she decided to pen her first book, A Twist of Fate. T set herself the challenge to write something that was interesting, compelling and yet easy enough to read that was still enjoyable. Pulling from her own past colorful experiences and the amazing personalities she has surrounded herself with, she had no shortage of inspiration. With a strong slant on erotic fiction, her core characters are empowered women who dont have to sacrifice their femininity. She enjoyed the process so much that when it was over she couldnt let it go.

T loves to travel, laugh and surround herself with colorful 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.
