STROKED LONG by Meghan Quinn
Scheduled to release: September 20, 2016
Sports Romance

Cover Designed by: Indie Solutions by Murphy Rae

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 by Jen Skewes

Stroked Long is the second book in this series but so completely different from what I expected, in a good way of course.  While the first book was filled with over the top humor, this one is more emotional, but also filled with with humor in the form of one quirky heroine who I loved. 

Bodi Banks is an Olympic swimmer and one of the best there is.  To most people he is sexy, confident, strong and in control.  But beneath that hard exterior is something altogether different from what people see.  Bodi is a very closed off person, not wanting to get close to anyone which means he doesn’t ever do relationships.  He basically trains, swims and keeps to himself.  I am not even sure that saying there is a wall around him is correct.  But there is definitely this huge barrier that has stopped everyone from getting close to him.  His anxiety, OCD, fears and most of all guilt is what holds this man back from really living and enjoying life the way a man his age should be.  No one has ever been able to crack Bodi Banks before, but once Ruby Hearts enters his life that is all about to change. 

Ruby is sweet, loving, a bit awkward at times, quirky and fun.  These two could not have been any different.  But that is what worked so well with them.  Ruby is so carefree, not caring what others think.  She knows she is quirky but that is what makes her so loveable.  It is the exact reason that Bodi is drawn to her.  From the moment he met her, jazz hands and all he was hooked, even if he had a hard time admitting it to himself or anyone else for that matter.  These two are complete opposite but yet so perfect together.  But Bodi has so much baggage that he is carrying around with him.  He never lets anyone in.  Will Ruby be the one to break down that barrier and open his heart?

I really enjoyed this story.  It was the perfect balance of humor and emotion.  I was completely sucked in from the moment I read the prologue.  The very beginning of this book is emotional and will break your heart.  But it helps to understand why Bodi is the way he is.  Trutfully my heart aced for this man.  He had carried so much on his shoulders since he was a little boy.  The guilt completely ate at him and as a a result he became this man who was so closed off that he was missing out on so much that life had to offer, specifically love.  But Ruby hearts changed that and these two together were just meant to be together.  Her quirkiness to his seriousness made for a great story.  I loved watching the change I Bodi, loved seeing him open up his heart in a way that he never ever thought was possible. And the best part was the woman who helped him get there. 

Stroked Long was a wonderful story and I cannot wait for the next one in this series.

STROKED by Meghan Quinn
Released: July 19, 2016

Cover Designer: Murphy Rae


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!
