Review: Stroked Long by Meghan Quinn
What happens when two girls read the same book. Well Naturally they get together to discuss it. Our take on a review.
Have you met Bodi yet? ~ V
Do you mean have I read Stroked Long by Meghan Quinn yet? ~M
Shut up, you knew what I meant.. Oh my goodness I am so in love with this story. The way the story takes you there; puts you in the moment.. ~ V
From the beginning of the book; in the first few chapters. I already had a lump in my throat. ~M
The background story is built up right away, no leaving you with that ‘what the heck is going on’ feeling, it just makes wanna know more about these characters.. The characters are brought to life by Meghan’s writing style and I seriously feel for them.. I feel their fears, their love.. ~ V
Yes Bodi and his sister were so easy to relate to. Their story just makes your heart ache. ~M
Don’t even get me started on Bodi, hot, wet, damaged.. So vulnerable but so rigid at the same time.. Sweet and loving but so scared and sheltered.. I felt like I connected with him.. ~ V
Shut up, I know he’s a fictional character.. ~ V
HA HA I know how you feel. His need for control and how reserved he is, not getting close to anyone made him even more desireable to me. But he was also so protective. And man that made him swoonworthy !!!!! ~M
Ruby is just the perfect lady, she’s spunky with a bit of attitude, compassionate, and understanding with drive and style.~ V
Oh Ruby was so awesome. Her awkwardness was so cute and funny, but the best part of her was that she owned it. ~M
I liked that the story progressed at a reasonable pace too.. It wasn’t like ‘bam, in love, inseparable and together forever’ ~ V
Yes totally agree. Not insta-love, we saw their relationship develop over time. I loved seeing how Bodi’s walls came down and how Ruby was so understanding and seemed to know what he needed. ~M
I enjoyed seeing how the different characters all had an impact on the main characters and helped develop my love for Bodi.. Haha. Watching him interact with his sister, coach and other athletes and how he grew throughout the book.. I don’t know I just felt so much for him. ~ V
Agreed, Bodi is definitely up there on my list of Swoon-worthy Book Boyfriends. When he let himself relax, you could see how playful he could be. And can we talk about some of the sex? Holy I felt like jumping into a pool to cool myself off. ~M
I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of sex in the book. It wasn’t over done. It didn’t leave me ‘like damn all they do is fuck’. You really felt the connection between the characters too.. It wasn’t just all about how hot the sex was.. It was more about the connection they had. ~ V
And the banter back and forth. The text messaging. I was laughing so hard at times, I had tears. ~M
Meghan really did a good job mixing the emotions in this book fear, compassion, and love. Along with the mixture of comedy, lust and friendship. The admiration I felt for Ruby for being able to accept without question.. I can’t even begin.. ~ V
Definitely a fav read for me, so heart-warming, funny, and sweet. It gave you all the feels. Made you laugh, cry and your heart go pitter patter. ~M
Yes definitely going on the need to read again and again list.. As well as the recommend to everyone while warning them Bodi is mine and I will get stabby list..~ V
Well you’re going to have to fight me for Bodi. I will gladly throw down for him. I also claim Ruby as my BFF. But yes everyone should read this book immediately. ~M
Bodi was mine first. ~ V
This is our BookSmacked review of Stroked Long by Meghan Quinn. We both read it then we talked about it. What better way to review a book then with the real life convos you have with your besties about it.
Hope you all enjoyed our review and understand how much we loved Stroked Long.
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?
