Back Stage by T Gephart RELEASE DAY BLITZ!

Title: Back Stage
Author: T. Gephart
Series: Power Station #3
 Release Date: June 8, 2015


Rock Star? Angie Morelli was not one. Growing up next to Power Station’s drummer didn’t guarantee a taste of the limelight, unless you count catcalls at low paying gigs in seedy bars and second-rate venues. She was okay with that; working her ass off at her dad’s mechanic shop during the day meant she could live her dream at night. She didn’t need Power Station waltzing back into her life, Jason Irwin had done enough damage the first time. Could she let go of her hurt for a chance of hitting the big time?

A one-night stand right before Jason Irwin left for his big break was no big deal. Except it wasn’t just any girl— it was Angie, Troy’s hot but young and inexperienced neighbor. It should never have happened, so best he pretend like it didn’t. Ten years later he remembered exactly why he went down that road. She was even hotter and she was also pissed as hell. Sounded like the perfect combination to invite on their world tour.

The road was not the place for history. It was bound to get ugly.
Book Three of the Power Station Series.



What a way to end the series... I'm not going to say that T saved the best band member until last, because let's face it everyone who knows me knows I am all about Troy Harris ;), but Jase is a close second and she sure as hell ended this series with a BANG!

After reading all of the Lexi and Power Station books I never expected Jason to be like he is, I'm struggling to find the words to describe him because he is just so uniquely Jase... He's protective, loyal and like the other members of the band he has charisma in spades, but as you can imagine all isn't as it seems. Angie is quite possibly one of the most badass chicks out there, her attitude only second to Lexi's early days LOL, that is one of the things that I'm drawn to with T's books... Her characters, male and female, are all badass. The guys have the perfect alpha balance, not being too domineering while having all those alpha male traits we love, and the females are all fiercely strong and independent!

Jase and Angie's tale just reinforces that there are two sides to every story and I loved discovering every little detail about these two! Their story will rip you in two and stamp on your heart for good measure, so be prepared for the emotional roller-coaster that you're signing yourself up for ;).

Back Stage was the perfect way to say goodbye to the Power Station gang and no matter how sad I am that it's the end, it is overshadowed by my happiness that these books exist and I can go back for a re read whenever I want! Thank you for these amazing characters T, I am so beyond grateful that they found their way into my life :) 


Jason Irwin was the product of Angie Morelli's every teenage fantasy come true, so when they finally ''got it on'' the night of her 18th birthday you'd think she'd be ecstatic right? Nope, because Angie had given the keyboard playing Lothario her heart and Jason cruelly ripped it out of her chest and rode out of town. That was the night that she realised that he was more of an idiot in tin-foil riding a donkey, than a knight in white shining armour.
Fast forward several years and a lot of hit albums for 'Power station' and our leading lady is all grown up and slowly making a name for herself singing in local bars with her band 'Black Addiction'
When 'Power Station' have a problem with their opening act Troy and the guys decide to hire a band that they trust...and who should pop into his head....his old neighbour Angie.
I'm not going to give away any more of the plot so you're going to have to read the book to find out what happens next...and trust are going to want to read this book!
Gephart is the queen of steamy, hot and filthy fookey! she's created some scenes that're going to leave scorch marks in pants all over the world. Angie Morelli is one sizzling hot, sexy and sassy lady, she doesn't take crap from anyone! and she sure as hell isn't getting her heart broken by Jason again.
I genuinely don't have the words to praise this book highly enough! it literally has everything that you'd want wrapped in one pretty smart-mouthed package!
Jason's story isn't what it first appears to be...although what in life is ever what it seems? I will admit that I shed a tear for the big man! He has a scene with Dan where they're having a heart-to-heart and you get transported into the inner workings of his mindset, you begin to see below the surface.
Having been a fan of the 'Lexi' series and now the 'Power station' series, I feel like I know these people! like I've grown with them and cried with them, watched them fall in love and fall apart, become parents and ultimately grow up I suppose. Tina has created a whole new world and filled it with magic and music, love and hatred, laughter and tears and ended it on the perfect note in my opinion.
Thank you so much Tina for taking us all into your family and filling our hearts with chords.
10 stars (because 5 just isn't enough)

“Hey what about Angie Morelli?” Troy rubbed his hand through his mohawk, the mess of crap he called hair.

Angie Morelli.

Yep, just saying her name was enough to send a chill up my spine. It had been ten years, and still not long enough. Her long, black hair and dark-brown eyes, something that had taken a while to wipe from my mind. That body. Yeah, I still remembered every curve. So freaking sweet, too. Unfortunately it wasn’t only her attributes that I remembered, one of my biggest asshole moments was also front and center getting the trip down memory lane. So you would have to understand why I didn’t immediately start doing backflips and welcoming her. The idea was to avoid the drama, not to give it top freaking billing.

“Dude, no. No fucking way,” Dan chimed in, his words echoing exactly what was rattling around in my head.

Thank you, douchebag. An Angie reunion was bad news. There had to be someone else. Hey, was Charlie Manson out of prison yet? I mean if we were thinking up bad ideas to take on tour, we might as well put them all on the table.

“She’s still playing?” James tipped his head toward Troy, taking way more interest in the topic than I would have liked. The itch to shut the conversation down danced with the need to keep my mouth shut. Delicate act. Wasn’t sure which one was going to win. Honestly, it was going to be trouble either way.

“Sure is. Lexi is trying to sign her band, Black Addiction; saw them last week at a club in Brooklyn. She said they packed the house.” Troy threw some more weight behind the cause. The conversation continued around me, even as the mother of all headaches took up residence in my frontal lobe.

“I saw her stuff on You Tube, they’re tight.” Alex nodded, the bastard not having any idea on what he was signing us up for, and I wasn’t going to be neon-signing it for him either.

“C’mon! Angie?” Dan rolled his eyes, throwing his hands up in disgust. “Troy, did you snort some of Wade’s nose candy before he left? She doesn’t have the chops for a stadium. Besides, she hates us.”

Had to admit, this was one time where I was happy for Dan to be running his mouth. Giving him a round of applause would have been too conspicuous, so I kept it on the down low, but I was a hundred percent behind his stance. The fact it wasn’t me who was leading the anti-Angie movement was a fucking bonus.

“No, she hates you.” Troy smirked. The Dan v Angie battles common knowledge.

“No, she fucking hates Jase, too.”

The motherfucker had to go there. He couldn’t have left it with his own reasons for not wanting her around. He had to go ahead and drag me into it.

“Hate is a pretty strong word, let’s go with a strong dislike.” I eased back into the chair knowing well enough that it wasn’t going to be the last on the topic I was going to have to volunteer. Fucking Dan.

“Dan I understand, but why you, Jase?” Troy’s raised eyebrow proving he had no idea what had happened between me and his sexy, barely legal neighbor before we’d hit the big time.

At least Dan had managed to keep a lid on it for longer than I’d ever imagined; I’d always had my suspicions that he’d spilled one time or another, but seems to be those concerns were unfounded. Who knew he had it in him. In the end, the violence was still happening. I’d just make sure I didn’t punch him above the neck, keep the SOB pretty for the fans.

“Long story.” Well at least it wasn’t a total lie. “Let’s just say I’m not her favorite person and move on, shall we.” The less I said about the subject the better. Besides, it was fucking years ago. Why the hell were we dredging it all up now?
“I heard she has a voodoo doll of you.” Dan stretched out his arms, anchoring them behind his head, his grin splitting off the side of his face. “Tell me, asswipe, do you feel any stabbing pain in your cock?”

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.
