STROKED by Meghan Quinn
Scheduled to release: July 20, 2016
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.
Review by Wendy
Paisley – cool chick
Reese King – Greek godlike man
Bellini – wicked and bonkers beyond belief
The Olympic swimmer and the reality TV star, not really that far-fetched in this day and age of social media and reality shows. But is this a relationship of convenience to further their careers or true love? I’ll leave that one with you!
Reese, honed, tattooed swimmer and although he has created a rather cold persona for the press, he is underneath all that a sweet guy. Did I mention he is also an underwear model? Picture it, yeah, you with me now?
Bellini is what she is. To the world she is the reality TV star, perfectly styled, perfect relationship, perfect everything. But good lord is this woman a bloody cow. She is obnoxious, rude, self-centred and all round pure wicked, with a dollop of delusional thrown in for good measure.
Her inner thoughts are outrageous and what comes out of her mouth to those around that she considers beneath her, which is pretty much everyone, is beyond hateful. You’ll want to hate her, you will really try, but actually you find yourself amused by her and wondering what in god’s name happened to her to make her this way.
And then there is Paisley. She’s the beautiful cool chick you see at the beach or on the street, pulling off a certain style that you would love to be able to wear, but know you’d look complete tit trying. She is unique and even though her life has thrown her lemons, after wallowing in the lemon juice of life, she is now trying to make lemonade out of the situation and move on.
Meghan made a great job of the interactions between all the characters. Reese and Paisley were fun to watch, their obvious attraction is undeniable and yet Paisley knows her job depends on her remaining professional, but Reese is not making it easy for her.
Bellini is mad as a demented wasp and I spent a lot of time wondering where in the name of all things sane did Ms Quinn find this nutjob in her imagination. It begs the question what else is lurking in there!
Great, fun story, plenty of Bellini like drama and off the charts sexual tension.
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!
