He’s hot. Like, stop breathing kind of hot with his killer body, vivid blue eyes, and constant five o’clock shadow.
Did I mention his body?
Watching Hollis Knightly, Olympic diving gold medalist, man-pony specialist—and cocky bastard—stand up on the diving platform in nothing but a small piece of Spandex? Yeah, I’m beguiled.
And easily seduced.
I want to keep things light but he won’t leave me alone. And hell, if he’s not wearing me thin.
What is supposed to be a simple summer fling with a very hot man, has now morphed into a f*cked-up mess of feelings, attachment, and dare I say it…love. But I don’t do relationships. And Hollis Knightly does.
MAJOR SWOON ALERT!
Are you kidding me right now? I didn’t think this series could get any better and then Hollis Knightly comes along and freaking SHATTERS it! I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again…HE. IS. A. FUCKING. UNICORN. I absolutely LOVED these characters and there is no better match in the romance world right now than Melony and Hollis. I’m so incredibly sad to see this series come to a close, but my God, did Ms. Quinn go out with a FREAKING BANG!
I know this is a bold statement, but I think Hollis Knightly will go down as one of my favorite male characters ever! That’s right…EVER! It’s rare to read a romance where the hero’s main goal in life is to settle down and have a relationship. It’s strange and unique, but Ms. Quinn makes it work with this character. I would gush about him all damn day if I had the time. I don’t know if I’ve ever LOVED a character as much as I do Mr. Knightly. I can’t stop grinning when it comes to him. My damn cheeks hurt from smiling so much!
And YES, there are only three books in this amazing series and TWO of them made it on my TOP PICK list! That shows you how much I LOVE this author’s writing! It’s addicting, hilarious, and sexy as hell! It’s rare to find a romance that makes you feel the way that STROKED HARD made me feel. All throughout the book, I couldn’t take my eyes of the pages. There is beauty in hilarity flying off of every page and I just wanted to soak it all in!
I know I’ve went on and on about our boy Hollis, but the heroine of their story, Melony, was just as special. She is the one with the demons this go-round. Her self-worth has been shattered. Her outlook on love, completely obliterated the minute her father walked out on their family when she was a kid. Hollis makes her uncomfortable with all of his advances on her, because he threatens to break down her walls and she just can’t have that. In the end, he will leave. All men leave. She isn’t good enough. She will never be good enough. OMG! Hearing her story and her struggles just absolutely broke my heart. It’s something every woman can relate to. Hollis is determined to find out why she won’t let him in, and he is a persistent little bugger. He will make her believe she is worth EVERYTHING, if it’s the last thing he does.
“Let me be the man you deserve, Melony. Let me show you how much you should be treasured.”
Oh god! I could go on and on about how much I loved this book, but I’ll stop bugging you so you can go read for yourself. Just be prepared to fall head over heels in love with both of these characters. There is no turning back. If you are new to this author, get ready to be introduced to a new addiction…the STROKED SERIES!
