Review: 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.

4 'Each squeeze sent me deeper into the sweet agony.' Stars.

Charming, witty, and absorbing, T. Gephart breathes a new, refreshing life into a cliched upper crust lifestyle by derailment in Train Wreck! As a new reader of Gephart's, I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised by how soon I was absorbed into the story line. With how abrupt the the book began *insert googly eyes here* YAH! Holy. Sh*t. That's one way to get the point across, and to capture one's attention, batman.

Train Wreck is a humorous, emotional roller-coaster ride through the uppity Upper East Side to the lower 'slummier' side of Queens where art meets. Where skin and canvas collide as these two worlds come together in a whirl-wind love affair of the ages. A slow burn so torturous and delicious, it hurts sooo damn good! You can't put the book down. Nope, can't do it. Gotta keep flip, flip, flippin' those pages! Cause oooooooh! It burns. SO. DAMN. GOOD. You can't help but become jealous of the words and characters! And then you've completely devoured the book and then here you are. Here I am! GAH!!!

Heartache.
Passion.
Humor.
Angst.
Perseverance.

Eva Thornton might come from money but her love for Josh Logan... money can't buy that. Perfection!!

'She had me twisted in knots I had no hope untying. Not that I wanted to. Wherever that road we were on was leading, I was heading there willingly.'
