“I heard my penis cures the worst of the diseases. Want me to stick it in you and make you feel better?
➦When I pick up Meghan Quinn’s book I can pretty much count on being entertained. Stroked Hard features an Olympic diver named Hollis – a stubborn smartass extraordinaire who oozes romance! He’s a complete badass when he competes… the level of concentration and grace is off the charts!
I’m kidding, I’m kidding…
➦Anywhooo… Hollis sees a woman and instantly knows she’s “THE ONE” and starts the chase. Unlucky for him, she wants nothing to do with him because she just doesn’t believe in relationships. But Hollis is relentless and he will spend any amount of time needed to convince her she’s worth it.
➦I loved the hero’s personality! He reminded me a lot of my hubby lol Low filter and a smartass remark at every turn.Hollis is WAAAY more romantic though. Someone needs to up his game.
➦Hollis is just so swoony when he talks about happily ever afters and all that jazz. He declares right from the start that he is all about commitment and loyalty and not into sleeping around. All the sweet gestures he does for the heroine are super romantic!
➦I’ll be honest and say that I wasn’t a big fan of insta-love Hollis developed from the start. I am not a fan of insta anything in books unless it’s PNR and ‘mate for life’ type of stuff. Hollis claimed that the second he saw this girl he just knew she would be his wife. Like, <b>when you know, you know. It’s just a bit too out there for me 😀
➦Other than that everything else worked well for me. I hear a lot of people didn’t like this heroine because, well, she just wouldn’t throw Hollis a bone for the longest time! I didn’t mind it, i enjoy a good chase in my books.
➦The ending had me laughing out loud. I totally didn’t expect to, but hell, Meghan Quinn knows how to bring the funny when you don’t see it coming. So if you’re looking for a fun and sexy read with a sweet and romantic hero give this one a try 🙂 And if you still haven’t read any other books from this series, Stroked LONG was my favorite!

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!
