We’re so excited about the release of STROKED LONG by Meghan Quinn!
My musings… 5
BREAK MY HEART CROWNS
Meghan Quinn is known for bringing laughter to the romance world with her outrageously hilarious characters and stories. But when I love Meghan Quinn most is when there is a more serious thread for her characters or story mixed in with all the hilarity, and Stroked Long
delivers in all aspects, easily making this story one of my favorite books written by her. What really makes this story tug on the reader’s heartstrings is the characters. These characters will burrow into your heart, and you will not want to say goodbye to them when the book is over. From the opening pages, the reader’s heart will bleed for Bodi, and it will continue to ache as he/she watches this man struggle. The complexity of his character, the motivation behind his behavior, and his struggles to live a “normal” life will eat the readers up, melt their hearts, make them fall in love with him. Meghan Quinn’s ability to write Bodi as a vulnerable character while still showcasing his strength of character is truly incredible. The other side to this fantastic duo is Ruby, and god did I love her. Her quirkiness, the endless rambling, the ownership of who she is in all her goofy glory makes her my favorite type of heroine. The kindness and acceptance and love that she exudes throughout the novel will completely make the reader a fan of her character.
These two completely come alive when they are together. They have fun, truly live in each other’s presence, and are electric in the bedroom. The is a perfect amount of dirty talking laced with emotion, so the reader can clearly feel that this is more than just sex for them, creating authenticity in them as a couple.
This plot will suck the reader in from the very first pages, quickly setting the tone for the more serious nature of the story. Don’t worry there are still the moments of humor that readers have come to love and expect from a Meghan Quinn book, but there is more. This journey she takes the reader on will move him/her emotionally, as if he/she is the one falling in love with Bodi, and the devastation that comes will affect the reader just as much as it does the characters. There is no choice in this book but to feel it all, the self-hatred, the guilt, the laughter, the friendship, the family, but above it all readers will feel LOVE and see the healing powers of love.
Stroked Long has a slightly different tone than the hilarious romance novels readers have to come to love from Meghan Quinn, because it is more. It is a story of loss, of dealing with trauma, of truly living a life without a fear, of letting love heal. It is truly some of her best work to date.
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
STROKED LONG by Meghan Quinn
Scheduled to release: September 20, 2016
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 standalone

STROKED by Meghan Quinn
Released: July 19, 2016
Cover Designer: Murphy Rae
NA Romantic Comedy
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!
