Lexi is a successful PR manager for a multinational firm, based in Melbourne, Australia. She is an energetic and impulsive soul whose passions sometimes control her life. Through a twist of fate she is chosen to represent a famous client, catapulting her into a new life in New York – fulfilling her in a way that she had never imagined.

When Lexi meets Alex, sparks fly. Their chemistry is explosive and they can’t get enough of each other. Her role as the PR manager for his band, Power Station, means that they have to keep their arrangement secret and this proves to be a complication for both of them.

The story follows the twists and turns of six months in Lexi’s life, exploring the complicated rules she creates to govern her relationships and the friends that help her realize that life is more fun when you throw out the rulebook and that love is a major part of being happy.

My Review

If you're looking for a strong female lead then this my friend is the book for you!
Lexi is strong, hilarious and very witty. In between shaking my head at her, laughing my ass off at the things that come out of her mouth, I just kept thinking I really wish I could be her friend.

In a twist of Fate Lexi's world is turned up side down when she displays an act of heroism and saves a young man in a car accident. Little does she know that person she saves, is the brother to lead singer of her all time favourite band, Power Station.

James, the lead singer is forever in debt to her, and offers her a job as their PR while they are on tour in Australia.
When Lexi accepts the job and meets the rest of the band, a game of cat and mouse is started with Alex Stone hot on her tail.

Alex Stone, 6'4, blue eyes, blond haired rocker. Alex is instantly attracted to Lexi as she is to him. They act on their attraction in a one time deal.

"I'm so tuned on right now, I can hardly speak. This is your chance to say no... Right now, I want to fuck your brains out but if you don't want this I will go down stairs and I will drive away." 

Lexi and Alex can't seem to get enough and their one time deal becomes a secret affair that has some serious parameters set by Lexi. 

No relationships 
Total secrecy
No sleep overs. 
No phone calls. 

With the rules set in place and the amazing sex. Lexi wasn't prepared for  feelings to come creeping in. 
While we see the strong, hard as nails Lexi with her rules, we also get a glimpse of the Lexi who has her own personal demons as she tries to find a way to open herself up to the possibility of more.

I fought my feelings of jealousy.. I was being irrational, Alex didn't owe me anything yet, my heart felt like it had been crushed. 

Lines start to get blurred and soon the rules start to get broken. Lexi's work life is excelling beyond her imagination and soon is offered to come on full-time as Power Station's PR. But while her work life is the best it can be, her relationship with Alex is moving too fast, soon she finds herself backing out too afraid to let him in. Pushing him away so she can't get hurt. 

But will pushing him away be the answer to stopping her feelings for him? And how will she manage to cope moving across the world to work in close proximity to a man she could possibly love but won't allow herself to....

T.Gephart knocks it out of the park with this sexy, funny steamy read. I loved Lexi hard. At times what comes out of her mouth your left wondering seriously? But she really is a hoot. I loved Alex he was so not what I was expecting. You could see he struggle with being pushed away and you just fall harder for him.

While this is a trilogy, A Twist of Fate does not end in a Cliffy. It ties up nicely and leaves you with a smile on your face. And a slightly panicked state as to what could possibly coming their way.
Bravo Tina.

About the Author

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 travelled 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 who didn't lack femininity. Out of this need, she decided to pen her first book, A Twist of Fate. 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 colourful 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.
T self-published her first novel through Smashwords, is about to release her second novel on the same platform and is currently writing the third book in the Lexi Trilogy.
