#1 Rival, an all new standalone friends to lovers, Romantic Comedy by T. Gephart is NOW LIVE!


Lauren Harper wanted four things.




And to annihilate Roman Pierce.

Sure, he was a smooth, smart and sexy attorney who made the senior partners at their law firm cream their pants. But he was also an annoying cocky jerk who she’d been competing with since they had both been hired over a year ago.

And Lauren didn’t care how amazing his smile was or how hot his body was underneath that suit—the firm-sponsored fun run had a lot to answer for—he was a ruthless, ambitious prick who would stop at nothing to climb the corporate ladder. He’d even climb over her given half the chance. Sadly, she’d probably enjoy that.


That wasn’t what she was supposed to be thinking.

She did not want him climbing over or under her, or doing anything else to her.

He was the enemy. Destroying him was the only option.

Wiping that smug, beautiful grin off his gorgeous, obnoxious face, a bonus.

Now, if she could just keep her objective in check and obliterate him before he did the same to her.

There were a few things in this blurb that drew me in. Office romance-check. Enemies to lovers-check. Strong female character-check. This book had me laughing and shaking my head throughout. While technically part of a series this book can be enjoyed as a standalone.

In order for an enemies to lovers book to work for me the characters can't cross the line into being hateful to one another. The author definitely didn't cross that line here, even if I wanted to shake Roman more than once.

Roman and Lauren (Harper as he calls her) have chemistry, you can feel it in their every exchange. The banter they have just pops. I love that they were both so smart, so fierce and independent. They challenged each other and eventually brought out the best in one another. Their sexy times were well, sexy. I enjoyed the push/pull of their relationship.

I thought the pacing of this book was solid, better than other books in this series. I liked the secondary characters and the layers they brought to the story. Again, this is a standalone though, so if you haven't read the others you can still enjoy this story.

#1 Rival was funny, sassy and a quick read. The characters were smart and strong and the writing was solid. I enjoyed this title and would recommend it.

About T. Gephart

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.
