He’s hot. Like, stop breathing kind of hot with his killer body, vivid blue eyes, and constant five o’clock shadow.
Did I mention his body?

Watching Hollis Knightly, Olympic diving gold medalist, man-pony specialist—and cocky bastard—stand up on the diving platform in nothing but a small piece of Spandex? Yeah, I’m beguiled.
And easily seduced.
I want to keep things light but he won’t leave me alone. And hell, if he’s not wearing me thin.

What is supposed to be a simple summer fling with a very hot man, has now morphed into a f*cked-up mess of feelings, attachment, and dare I say it…love. But I don’t do relationships. And Hollis Knightly does.

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.

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.

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!

My Review:

This was the second book I’ve read by Meghan Quinn and since I read and loved Stroked Long book #2 in this series I was really looking forward to this book. To be honest though I am a bit disappointed now after having finished this book.
The story was okay but I wasn't very fond of the characters. If you are into dirty talks then you will probably love those characters, it just wasn't something for me.

The Story:
Hollis Knightly has a killer body and any woman would be lucky to get his attention. Though Hollis isn't at all a playboy. He isn't looking for a different woman every night. No, he wants what his parents have. He wants a serious relationship with a woman he can have a future with. The instant he lays eyes on Melony, he knows that she is the one woman he wants to marry and since Hollis isn't one to be shy, he tells her so.
Hollis is cocky with a gorgeous body and Melony doesn't know why he wants her. She is a broken woman and doesn't do relationships. Now she only has to get this through his thick scull because it seems like Hollis doesn't give up on her easily.

The story was nice though I didn't buy into Hollis' intentions for a while. He saw Melony and was determined to marry her?! I mean, he didn't know anything about her, let alone if she was single or already taken.
I wish there was more background of the story. Most of the time it was just Hollis and his dirty mouth worshipping Melony. I absolutely couldn't deal with the way Hollis was talking. I mean, WTF?! Who talks like that? I have to give credit to the author for coming up with all this stuff but it just wasn't for me. Call me a prude but I just had to cringe every time when he made up stupid nicknames for Melony. I loved serious Hollis because in those sweet moments he was loving and so nice though most of the times he just had a dirty mouth. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind sexy talk but he was just over the top. It wasn't sexy but just ridiculous and insulting. How Reese was still his friend, I have no idea. Sometimes it felt like Hollis had two personalities because he could change his way of talking within seconds.
Melony annoyed me in the second half of the book because Hollis had never let her down and he had always worshipped her but she still couldn't trust him and threw him away and hurt him. She confused me because even though what her dad did broke her, I didn't truly comprehend how this alone could have made her run from Hollis who really and truly cared for her.

Even though I wasn't in love with this book I still enjoyed reading it and I actually bought the first book because I missed out on that one and can't wait to read about Reese.
