It was fun to see the best friend relationship with Reese and Hollis. Their history is evident when they are together.
Hollis is so cute. And it never seems creepy that he doesn't give up on Melony even though she seems to be pushing him away.
I'm guessing this story must parallel "the Notebook" since they reference it a lot.
Hollis is a fun, cheesy, and so comfortable in his masculinity that he can be effusively romantic. Melony knows she isn't the kind of heroine one roots for because she is crippled by her feelings & therefore sabotages all attempts at love. They do make a perfect pair -- because only someone so sure of his love could get this girl to accept joy.
I feel like Meghan Quinn got into my head and picked out everything I would want in the perfect man...silly, inappropriate, and romantic, with a heart the size of an Olympic pool. She scored a perfect 10 with Hollis. I honestly don't know if there's been an H I've adored more than him. Bodi may own my soul, but Hollis stole my heart.
Stroked Hard was the perfect conclusion to this series. It has all the humor and heat you'd want in a Meghan Quinn book, with just enough angst and frustration to keep things interesting. I could sit here all day and gush over how much I love Hollis, but that would keep you from meeting him so I won't. But God, do I want to. I'd love to share all his silliness, all his swooniness, all the quotes that I've got highlighted that made me fall for him, but I'll let you experience all on your own. I'll just leave you with this little tidbit, which is so perfectly Hollis... "Mark my *effing* words, Melony, I am going to woo you so hard, you won't know what hit you."
Ms. Quinn saved the best for last!
She did and I have to admit that it kinda hurts to admit that because I didn’t think Hollis could even sidle up next to Bodi on BBF list, but holy f$-^$%g h%ll, he did that and more! (Please note that I am still a full fledged member of #TeamBodi while being apart of #TeamHollis) I’m still in a total swoony-twiterpatted-dopey smile state of being right now over Stroked Hard and it all has to do with Hollis Knightly. Those teasers do NOT do the man justice at all...
Well, they do because he’s cocky, ridiculous and has NO filter what so ever. He’s random, but it’s a controlled type of random (unlike Ruby’s kind of random) because he knows exactly what he’s doing when the words come out of his mouth. He’s so comfortable in his own skin (literally and figuratively) it’s scary and yet such a turn on and yet there will be many times when you wonder how no one has attempted to gut this boy with a spoon. But when you find out what kind of man he is and you’ll become all kinds of gooey and realize that he’s the kind of man that you’ve been looking for your entire life. He’s sweet, romantic, honest, persistent, can dance, sing...I could go on and on but what it all boils down to is that he is an ultimate book boyfriend.
Melony. I loved the girl. She’s quick witted, snarky, sassy, intelligent and the fact that she didn’t gut Bellini with a spoon shows a high tolerance for bullsh%t and is determined to achieve the goal she has set for herself, especially since if she achieves that goal the success from it will help to making her mom’s life easier because the woman is her whole world. But she is also extremely stubborn, not a bad thing in general, but the girl has wounds that run deep and have her so set on never being in a committed relationship that it hurts. I can’t say I blame her and I understand why she feels the way she does, but at the same time I wanted to reach out and have a come to Jesus style talk with her.
Hollis’ belief that Melony as his one and only had her running, but they both enjoyed the cat and mouse game they were playing and that had me enjoying the chase as well. With Hollis’ calculated randomness and Melony’s snarky wit they were a match made in heaven and the sexual chemistry between them was five alarm hawt! But the sweet moments were what showed just how good they could be together if given the chance, okay, if Melony would give them a shot. Thankfully there were quite a few people who were more than happy to give them both a kick in the ass when needed, and believe me there are many times when their ar$%s needed kicking. And though I was growling when the huge pothole happening them their journey, I absolutely adored the steps that were taken to get them back together. It definitely put Noah Coughlan to shame.
The events in Stroked Hard run concurrently with those in Stroked and Stroked Long and can be read as a standalone without feeling as if you’re missing pieces of the puzzle. I could go on and on about this one, but the bottom line is: Just. Read. It. You may find your head spinning at some of the OTT moments, but the sweet, sexy romantic ones will make it all worthwhile.
Oh and that second epilogue? Deranged, but brilliantly so!
