Stroked Long by Meghan Quinn
We're so excited about the release of STROKED LONGby Meghan Quinn!
From his dirty-blond hair and breathtaking smile, to the abs from heaven and the irresistible V in his waistline, everything about Bodi Olympic-gold-medalist Banks screams hot piece of @$$.
Yet there’s more.
Dark shadows lurk behind his soulful, serious eyes.
I’m enamored. He’s captured me.
How can running an art foundation with Bodi Banks turns into a slow-burning, epic romance, even though he tries to push me away at every chance? How can I stay away from a broken, routine-driven man whose soul cries to be forgiven for a crime only he believes he committed? Or is that a lie?
Reese King: Olympic medalist, underwear model, Greek god.
His body is chiseled from rock, sculpted by the weight room, and refined by water.
On a daily basis his skin is completely bare for everyone to see, tan and defined, only covered up by a minuscule piece of spandex. There is no denying his sex appeal.
I hate to admit it, but I’m head over heels infatuated with him.
There is one HUGE problem though. His achingly gorgeous abs, inked up arm, and cocky swagger belong to my boss, the high-profile, reality star bitch from hell and certified heinous human being, Bellini Chambers.
What I think is going to be an easy job assisting a glorified wench turns into a cluster f*ck of epic proportions.
Stroked Long is Meghan Quinn’s second book in the Olympic Swimmers series- Stroked. Quinn features two lovable side characters that we first met in Reece and Paisley’s story- Bodhi Banks, uptight, Olympic Swimmer gold medalist and Ruby a quirky artist who makes you laugh as much as you fall in love with her.
As much as I love several of Quinn’s books, I have to say this book topped them all without a glance in hindsight at all the loveable imaginative characters Quinn has given me over the years. I LOVED this story. Quinn managed the pair an emotional story of a man so broken and tortured by his past with a light hearted, colorful, readily entertaining woman who could not have been more different. These characters were perfectly written and as their connection steadily grew I found myself falling more deeply in love with their story. Quinn has a way of bringing out the best her characters making their stories relatable even if their experiences and personalities couldn’t be more different than your own. She creates a story within the reader's mind that it’s hard to look away from or leave behind even days after reading.
There was so much to this story that I loved. I could spend countless hours pointing out every single tiny detail that make me smile, laugh out loud, or giggle with young love glee, but I won’t waste your time while you could be falling for Bodhi and Ruby all on your own. If you buy any books of Quinn’s this year make sure Stroked Long is at the top of your list. I can’t wait to find out what’s next in this series and am so looking forward to more of Quinn’s lighthearted fun romances.
About the Author:
Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if "It's Raining Men" starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.
Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing... enter her first novel, Caught Looking.
Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
