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 is the second book in the a new adult contemporary romance series, Stroked, by Meghan Quinn. I loved the first book, Stroked, a LOT, so I went into Stroked Long expecting to enjoy it, but I got so much more than that. This book LEVELED ME. I love this book, and Bodi so hard. It is without a doubt, the best book I have read in 2016. Hands down. I don’t even know how to adequately express my love for this book. This is not just a book for romance lovers, or a book for sports romance lovers. This is a book that everyone needs to read!
I loved Reese from book one, but Bodi made me say Reese who? I can’t even decsribe how deep my love for Bodi and Stroked Long goes. This book affected me on a very deep level. The care and liove that Meghan Quinn took describing Bodi’s struggles were evidence on every single page. I have seen so many books with OCD characters, and character that have seen terrible tragedies in their lifetime, but none have touched me like Bodi did. I just felt for him so much. And that is all due to how masterful and tender Meghan was in her portrayal of him. Bodi is on my short list of top book boyfriends of 2016. And it will be hard to top him. He deserves so much more attention. (even though he would hate that.) And then there is Ruby.
I remember when I first met Ruby, I was only about 5 sentences into her dialgoe and the only thought running through my head was, “man, she is ANNOYING!” I didn’t think there was any way that she would win me over. She has the wrost case of nervous word vomit that I have ever seen, she is distruptive, and loud and totally out there. But darn it, if she didn’t make me fall for her just like Bodi did. I think the turning point was when she first went over Bodi’s house to work on the foundation project. She is so perceptivve when it comes to reading people, and I loved how she quietly gave Bodi what he needed without making a big deal out of it. I loved this loud over the top person, could reign it in and quietly be there for someone without bringing attention to their eccentricities. Ruby is a good person.
Bottom line: Stroked Long is the best book I have read this year. It was even better than Stroked. It has everything that I look for in my romantic comedy books. It made me laugh out loud so many times, but it also made me cry. It made me feel. It made me fall in love. Bodi and Ruby are pure magic. I don’t think you could have found a more mios matched pair if you tried. but they work so beautifully together. And Meghan Quinn’s writing is really a work of art. I have not been this moved by a book in a longggg time. I really loved this one! There are really great characters, who have out of this world chemistry and I love the Olympic theme. I think Meghan Quinn has a gold medal series here! (sorry, I couldn’t resist.)You have to meet Bodi! Stroked Long by @AuthorMegQuinn is @BookBriefs FAVORITE BOOK OF 2016!
