Overall Rating: 4.5 stars
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.
Every single time I pick up a book from Meghan Quinn I am guaranteed to have a good laugh. You know, the kind that you do a few snort, snorts and almost pee your pants? This is NO different with stroked. In fact, this one made me laugh so much that my husband started to think there was something wrong with me. What is it about this one that made me laugh and let out a couple of snorts you ask? BELLINI. Woah. Typically, I hate villains- they are slimy, manipulative, and add zero things to the story. HOWEVER, Bellini added so much to this story that it made me fall head over heels in love. I get the fact that most readers detested her character but honestly, I freakin loved her. She is just so dumb, rude, and offensive that I couldn’t help liking her. Obviously I don’t like the fact that she COULD treat people the way she did (and my gosh, I would never treat people that way) but this is fiction… and quite humorous. Meghan Quinn is certainly a genius when it comes to writing, and the way she pulled me into this one is quite unique. Anytime she writes something I immediately pick it up because I know I am in for a good time. Clearly, I recommend it. But readers beware, Bellini is the type of character that most readers will hate. I on the other hand have a twisted mind so I enjoyed her…
So, this book is a sports romance/romantic comedy. The characters as written in true Quinn style, and their actions will set your world on fire! They are light, fun, engaging, and totally over the top (especially Bellini). Meghan Quinn’s writing style is on point and her story is told to perfection. I can’t wait to see what the other books in the series are like, and I especially can’t wait to see what she does with Bellini’s character. I heard from the grapevine that readers are going to be able to pick her demise, so I am really excited about this! Readers who are new to the author should definitely pick up this book and her other ones. In order of my favorite ones, I would suggest reading THE MOTHER ROAD first (this story is what got me totally hooked on her work) and then THE VIRGIN/RANDY ROMANCE NOVELIST series. They are laugh out loud funny and full of swoon worthy men that you will dream about!
