Stroked Long by Meghan Quinn

Summary from Goodreads:

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?


My Thoughts:

     Ruby is a fun loving, optimistic, sassy, no filtered artist whose life may not be perfect but she feels that it is pretty great. Bodi Banks appears to be a standoffish, introverted Olympic gold medalist that she has always had a crush on.  Now they are working on a new project together that Bodi’s sister, Eva, started as a charity using their loves of sports and art.  Can Ruby work through her tongue tied crush and get to be friends with Bodi? Will he loosen up and let her in?

     Oh, Ms. Quinn, what have you done to me? Seriously? Giggles, tears, gut wrenching angst? WHY? Why don’t you like me? I’m a big fan…why must you hurt me so? Ugh.

     Ok, dramatic response over…..

     Ruby is such a great female character. She is funny, awkward at times, and just sassy and adorable.  I want to be friends with her! But Bodi? Oy, Bodi.  He’s broken, lonely and in need of a hug…and maybe some Double Stuff Oreos (they’re manly!).  This love story is so amazing that as I was reading it I already wanted more.  The chapters switch back and forth between view points and as I was reading I instantly wanted the same scene again but from the other side of it. 

      I don’t like to give spoilers so I don’t want to get into the storyline anymore but I just have to say that I flove this couple.  Just looking at the cover you might think this is just another sexy romance but it is so much more! This is a gut wrenching love story!  I was loving this story and their journey and was even a little sad to see it end.  If you want a great love story with LOTS of feels, read Stroked Long!

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!
