A Twist of Fate by T. Gephart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Lexi is a hard working woman at a successful PR firm in Australia. An interesting set of circumstances leads her into the job opportunity of a lifetime. As the new PR manage for a band she has loved for years, she quickly finds an intense and mutual attraction to the band's guitar player Alex. Due to her business relationship with the band, she and Alex keep their sexual relationship secret. This becomes challenging for both of them, as does their no-strings all-sex relationship.
I enjoyed Lexi's character a lot. While she can be a little over-the-top at times, she is an interesting and assertive woman who goes after what she wants all the time. She was in a very unhealthy relationship in the past that definitely helped to shape her future. On the positive side, it made Lexi strive to be a successful woman in a field she excels in. However, she is also determined never to let someone hurt her the way she was hurt before and the way she goes about that is by having only sexual relationships with men on her terms, and never allowing herself anything that could turn into real intimacy.
Alex is pretty much fantastic in every way. He is a very talented guitarist whose band is growing more and more in its international popularity. Alex quickly falls for Lexi, and agrees to a sex-only relationship since he wants her bad enough to take whatever she will give him.
There is a lot of emotion and angst as Lexi fights to sort through her personal demons and find a way to open herself up to real friendships and real love. I love the way that these characters came into each other's lives, and I loved to see how each relationship developed. I read straight through this book once I picked it up, and then immediately moved on to the next in the series when I was finished. This book was a very pleasant surpass, and I will be reading more by this author in the future.
