Train Wreck by T. Gephart

“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.

Train Wreck, a sexy Contemporary Romance that is fresh & fun. An artist making a career in New York City, Eve has the heart, but does
she have the talent to make it shine through the canvas?  Queens based tattooist, Josh is renowned for his ability to create extraordinary pieces of art on skin leaving no doubt of the emotion that bleeds through.   

Told in first person, from dual perspectives, super sexy & will laugh out loud, funny from the start…”I’d even managed to carry on a conversation, completely hiding the fact my panties had disintegrated the minute he’d walked into the room. That, my friends, was where the real talent was.”  The story unfolds at a steady pace & is as funny as it is sexy, all the while pulling at heart strings & making you want to take a chance at overcoming personal disasters & making dreams come true, “When I want something
bad enough, I go out and get it.”.
One moment, your breath will be taken away & the next, will have you holding it in, with anticipation of what will come next for these characters.
I couldn’t get enough of the “verbal gymnastics” that kept a smile on my face for hours!  I love these characters! The passion of Josh’s love of his job, his life, his big heart & his pulling no punches, all or nothing attitude toward life.  Eve’s realness, confidence & never quit outlook.  Real angst & life altering moments that come when you least expect them & yet just in the nick of time.  Words to live by “as long as you learn from it, it’s not really a mistake.”

Such an enjoyable read!
