Train Wreck by T. Gephart • RLEASE BLITZ & REVIEW

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


“No passion, no emotion, no originality—a train wreck of epic portions.”

Those were the words to describe Eve Thorton’s exhibition. Not even a fine arts degree from Yale or her daddy’s 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 who’d written her off was her first instinct. But that would come later. Instead, she would show them that she wasn’t a bored socialite with more money than talent.

She would prove everyone wrong, and she wasn’t 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 wasn’t, translating on skin what she couldn’t onto her canvas. All she had to do was convince him to share his jaw-dropping brilliance, and help her—seeing him naked—a bonus. Then she could go back to her regular life, vindicated.

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

Review by: Gina 

This book may be titled Train Wreck but it is everything but a train wreck!!! It is sweet, sassy, and chalked full of laugh out loud moments (I have to credit a lot of those to Dallas).

I really enjoyed the story! I enjoyed the play on the two different artist and I loved how Eve, pretty much barged her way into Josh's life. From that moment, I was Team Eve! From there, I thought the story flowed very nicely. There were a few hiccups throughout the story but nothing too overly dramatic. It was a very fun read! 

The characters were amazing! I thought they had a lot of personality to them. Eve was fun and quirky but had a lot of determination in her. Josh was super sweet and it wasn't something I was expecting from a tatted up tattoo artist. These two made for the perfect opposites attract story! And Dallas, he was a secondary character in this story, but he is kind of favorite (shhh don't tell the others). He was just so ridiculous and I absolutely loved him! I really hope we get to see more Dallas in the future!

Overall, this book was fantastic! And I don't comment on covers too much but this one is gorgeous! It fits the story very well! If you are looking for a funny, sweet, and sexy read, this is your book! Pick it up, you wont regret it!

Review by: Sam 

TGephart is one of the authors who I stalk on a regular basis for any give and tell of her upcoming work. I have loved her previous creations and the fictional worlds she masterminds. 
When I caught wind of 'Train Wreck', I was instantly taken by the blurb which hosted a couple of my favourite words ever- 'sexy', 'talented' and 'tattooist'. 
BOOOOOOOOOOM! There goes my heart! I knew I needed this book in my hands and I knew TGephart would take me on another crazy ride. 

Eve was a breath of fresh air. Her thoughts, her outspoken views which on occasions had me howling with laughter, and her efforts to be the best person she can, really stood out to me. Eve is an artist who let's just say really received not one, but two sucker punches in very quick succession. However, as mind boggling as both of those blows were, she didn't show defeat. She held her chin up, so her crown didn't fall, and she got things done. 

A conversation with a new 'friend' puts Eve in the charging line of Josh Logan. A sexy, talented, tattooist from Queens. Once Eve steps foot in his shop, she really has her mind made up with what she wants her next steps to be and the word 'No' just isn't an option to her. This makes things a little tough on Josh because of his insane instant attraction to Eve. Josh had me laughing, swooning and his character brings a whole lot of heart to this story. I loved reading his POV, and I really enjoyed his friendship with his buddy and co-worker, Dallas. The connection between Josh and Eve although fast paced, was beautiful to watch unfold. 

I don't want to spoil the story for any reader, that is why this review will not give much of the plot away. But I will say that any reader especially those who have read Gephart's other books will be in for a real treat with this story. It is easy reading, contains great character growth and is sweet, sexy and so freaking funny in all the right places.

Author Bio

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 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 didn't 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 don't have to sacrifice their femininity. 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 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.
