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.
Well…this was one HELL of a book to pop my Meghan Quinn cherry! I immersed myself in this book from the very beginning. To say this was funny, would be putting it mildly. STROKED was ridiculously and overwhelmingly HILARIOUS! So full of insane hilarity, but also SO full of heart. STROKED takes the Romantic Comedy genre to the next level! I grinned ’til I laughed. I laughed ’til I cried. I cried ’til my heart was bursting with love for these characters and their road to romance.
“Do you want me?”
“What?” Her eyes shoot wide and her entire body becomes fidgety with nerves. “Why would you ask that?”
“Because I can see it in your eyes, the way you look at me, the way your body reacts to mine when I’m near you. You’re nervous, you’re yearning, you’re desperate for me to touch you. It’s written all over your face. I just want you to fucking admit it.”
Oh my, that Reese King is a freaking animal. I love it! The sexual chemistry between Reese and Paisley was intense, playful, and explosive. It was a forbidden pleasure that had me blushing from head to toe. Oh, and some of you might be worried after reading the blurb, that there will be some kind of love triangle or cheating…rest assured there is NO love triangle, and even though there is cheating in STROKED…it’s not as it seems. Trust me on this. Meghan Quinn is my new hero. I wish I discovered her work sooner, but have no doubt that as soon as I finished this book, I added everything she has ever written to my TBR!
“What are you doing?” I hiss, hoping no one saw him take me in here. He presses his hands against the door, bracketing my head and bringing his lips inches from mine. “I’m showing you who I belong to.” Before I can react, his lips are on mine, searing me with his heat, prying my mouth open with his tongue.
I just want to take a minute and discuss our dear Bellini…she is not quite a secondary character, but she isn’t a main character either (although she would cut me if she read this…because Bellini is at the center of everything and queen of the universe, and blah blah blah). Any who, some might say the ridiculous wench ruined the story, and to that I would say PAH-SHA! She was SO NEEDED in this story. Without her, I believe the story would have fallen flat. Even though, she was annoying as hell, she brought life to this book. Some of her demands were SO INSANE that it was just downright hilarious. The witty banter that ensued because of some of her comments was what made this story flourish! I think Bellini has become one of my all time favorite romance villains (and YES, that’s a thing).
Omg! And Melony and Hollis….oh boy! There is something going on between those two. Every single character brought something special to this story, and it makes me laugh just thinking about the interaction between all of them. Everything about this book screams bestseller to me. It totally erased my worries and anxieties for the day, and just brought pure joy into my night. I wish I could put every quote that I highlighted into this review, but it would make this way too long, and believe me, you will want to experience this gem yourself.
If you are looking for a PERFECT summer read, just in time for the Olympics, you’ve got it with STROKED! Absolutely incredible writing…wicked humor…and the sexiest game of truth or dare you will ever come across…This was romantic comedy PERFECTION!
