Release Day Blitz Review - Trainwreck by T. Gephart

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.


"That my first ever solo art exhibition had been called a train wreck and me—its creator—a soulless socialite with zero talent and even less skill."

This is my very first book by T. Gephart. Why on gods green earth have I not read any of her other books sooner?! Why???? Train Wreck was sexy, witty, romantic, and I bet her other books are just as good. Our main character, Eve, was such a fun chick to read about and I couldn't help but enjoy the lovely banter between her and Mr. Sex-On-Legs. I mean, Josh. I knew I'd love the guy because he's a sexy tattoo artist...enough said. Have I ever mentioned I love a man with ink? Mmmm. 

“Hey, Eve.” Josh’s hot as fuck hand—seriously, I had a problem—ran through his hot as fuck hair.
 “Want to sit . . .” On your face? Sure “ . . . in on the next client? You’ve been stuck at your desk all day.”

You would think that walking in on your boyfriend getting his lollipop licked would be a high up on one of the worst moments of your life. Nope, think again. Eve is an artist and the exhibition she has showcasing her work is, well, beyond terrible. There's no passion or emotion in her art and the reviews are anything but warm and friendly. Eve needs help fast. Which is how she ends up in Josh's tattoo shop doing anything she can to learn from a fellow artist on how he is able to evoke so much beauty and passion into his tattoo drawing. 

What Eve wasn't expecting was a gorgeous man that could melt the panties off of a nun. Yes ladies, he's that hot. I for one, loved him straight away. It was nice watching Josh fight his feelings for the beautifully stunning, Eve. I'll admit that very early on in the book I was already asking for the loving. And by loving... well you know what I mean! And if you don't, then you're probably too young to read the book anyways. Anyways, the story gets a good amount of loving. Yes!

"You’re not here to learn every hard plane of his body, Eve. You’re here to learn from him."

Romance novels are my life. I can't go a day without reading them. Train Wreck was no exception. It had everything I love and want in a good romance story. I know readers will fall hopelessly in love such as me. If you need something lighthearted with little angst (and sexy times!) this will be perfect for you!

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.
