STROKED LONG by Meghan Quinn
Scheduled to release: September 20, 2016
Sports Romance
Cover Designed by: Indie Solutions by Murphy Rae

PURCHASE LINKS:

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?

**STROKED LONG can be read as a stand alone.

REVIEW:

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Meghan Quinn is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors with the way she mixes sexy with funny in her contemporary romances. Stroked Long had me laughing out loud and swooning so many times.That’s not to say the story was all fun and games. There was a very serious aspect to Stroked Long that I loved as well.

Stroked Long can be read as a standalone novel, but its timing coincides with Stroked. It follows characters introduced in the first book, Bodi (Reese’s competitor) and Ruby (Bellini’s seamstress), as they fall in love and learn how to forge a relationship despite Bodi’s need for order.

Bodi was not at all what I expected. I faintly remember him from Stroked. I expected him to be kind of badass like Reese, but he had way more going on. Bodi was dealing with some serious mental issues that had kept him from having a relationship before. Meeting Ruby threw him off and their relationship brought something new to his life.

Ruby gave my whiplash at first. She was a little nuts. I didn’t think I was going to like her because of her over the top ways, but it didn’t take long for me to fall in love with her character. The more I got to know her, the more I loved her awkwardness. She was so perfect for Bodi. She didn’t shy away from his quirks, she embraced them. Ruby knew how to put him at ease and it was just so sweet.

Bodi and Ruby’s relationship started out awkwardly, got a little more weird and then became downright sexy. And funny. I can’t leave out funny. The text messages Bodi and Ruby exchanged were so hilarious that I couldn’t help laughing. I loved them together so much. The way they supported each other when they needed it most was very sweet.

I absolutely loved Stroked Long and its witty banter and amazing characters. I highly recommend reading this book (and Stroked, too!) to anyone who loved a great sports romance.

BLURB:

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.

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!
