REVIEW - Train Wreck - T. Gephart

TITLE - Train Wreck 
AUTHOR - T. Gephart

Pre-Order from

Releases July 10th


“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.


"Opposites attract, 5 stars"

What happens when you take two completely different people who only have one thing in common and toss them together? You get Josh and Eve and a metric ton of chemistry. I loved Train Wreck. It was fun and slightly light hearted with some serious undertones. The characters were different but complemented each other.

Eve is the rich girl,  struggling artist. She firmly wants to create a name for herself in the art world without the help of her bank account or others. But after a horrible show and a craptastic day she thinks its all over. Until an unlikely source shows her a tattoo artists work, which gives her hope that maybe she will find what she's lost.

Josh is a self taught tattoo artist, he has no fancy college degree, but he's got more talent in his pinky then most do in their whole body. When he sees blank canvas Eve he knows she's not going to work for him or his shop, but sometimes one will surprise you.

Eve may come from money, but she doesn't act like it. Josh may be a little gun shy but he's willing to take a chance on the struggling artist. The chemistry is real and they fight it, but it's pointless.

Together they are great people but together they are explosive. They bring out the best in each other and the art they do. Josh knows he's where he's supposed to be in life but Eve is still trying to find her place. Will she find it? Will Josh be apart of her future?

These two are funny and real. The secondary characters are funny and supportive. It was a perfect read for me on a ridiculously long car ride.
