Add to your TBR!
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?
I didn’t see this book coming. I didn’t expect it to touch me so much. I was moved to tears over and over again. Each turn of the page made my heart beat a little faster. Bodi and Ruby are two of the BEST characters I’ve come across in a sports romance. Meghan Quinn has absolutely OUTDONE herself with STROKED LONG.
I’m fairly new to this author, but what I’ve read so far…I’ve just been completely impressed. But this book….THIS BOOK…Bodi’s book just absolutely BLOWED ME AWAY! I can’t pinpoint the exact reason why this is one of my favorite sports romances of the year, because there are so many reasons, but I would probably start with the realness of the characters that the author brought to the table. Bodi’s devastating childhood brought me to tears on more than one occasion. The man he grew up to be also tore my heart in two. The ease, the awkward, and the beauty that Ruby brought into Bodi’s life was absolutely uplifting and magical. The struggles they faced on a daily basis kept the butterflies swirling in my stomach. There were so many ups and downs, so many swirling emotions throughout this book, and I may be a masochist, but I didn’t want it to end.
From the sinking feeling I got in the pit of my stomach while I was reading the prologue, to the hilarious and witty banter that Quinn’s beautiful heroine brought to the table, to the blossoming affection that grew between our main couple, STROKED LONG took me on the ride of my life.
The perfect mix of heartbreak and hilarity makes STROKED LONG an easy TOP PICK for me. This series is quickly becoming on all-time favorite sports romance series and I can’t wait for Hollis’ story. If you want a romance where you can just tell that the author put her whole heart and soul into it, look no further than this book right here! A spectacular sports romance with all the laughs and TONS of feels!
