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.
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!

This story will definitely cause your body to explode in heat and chills of heat. The chemistry between the MC . It has laugh out loud funny humor and it is lighthearted in the way for a love story. The banter between the characters will grab you immediately and make you take notice –and the sexual chemistry is one of heat and passion. Oh yes, prepared to sit up and take notice.
There is three viewpoints that are told in this story-Reese King is a world champion Olympic swimmer, assistant to Bellini- Paisley Macarro and reality star, Bellini Chambers. Reese has never won a gold medal and he is competing in his last Olympics at age 32 so he is fighting for the thing he wants most. He seems to win silver in all his competitions, his interviews he gives he throws tantrums when interviewed but he is really a good guy , a sensitive guy. So his publicist suggest that he enter a fake relationship with reality star Bellini to make him come off as a good guy in order to get his popularity back where it needs to be and win sponsors to help him. Reese doesn’t like what he is having to do, never thought he would see himself in this kind of spot but here he is, having to fake play being engaged, especially when Bellini has such a nasty temper and attitude.
Paisley is a sweetheart, she is truly someone special. I don’t know how she can handle Bellini the way she does , with her temper and attitude. While Paisley has to work for Bellini, she got to know Reese since the whole Bellini and Reese publicity went into effect. Reese also got to know Paisley and it was so electric between these two. They both wanted to know more about the other and as they did, Reese found himself getting more into Paisley’s life and heart but thing is, there is the snake in the garden. Her name is Bellini and she refuses to let Paisley and Reese be happy and mess up her cash making scheme. Will Paisley and Reese be able to get a HEA? Will Reese finally get a gold medal and will Bellini get what’s coming to her? Oh you don’t know what you will get when you read such a fantastic story such as this. There are some parts of the story that do run a bit sluggish but overall I did love the POV that are shown. I wish there was a followup on how Reese and Paisley are doing , overall this is a good romantic story.
My rating: 4.3 stars ****
