So this book is definitely one of those slow burning romances that leaves you hanging off the edge of your seat hoping and praying that everything will work out between the hero and heroine. Readers won’t be disappointed in the slightest however, there are some major up’s and downs that they must contend with before reaching their happily ever after. As I said before, Bodi (the hero of the story) suffers from extreme OCD and has a very hard time not only socializing, but leaving the confines of himself. Now, he may be a gold medalist swimmer, but there are some major problems in his life that keep him extremely closed off to the world. Our heroine on the other hand is FULL of sunshine and butterflies. She had me laughing at the most inopportune moments and I swear, my husband must think I am crazy. I mean the things that come out of that woman’s mouth will literally make you giggle snort and possibly wet your pants. YUP. It’s that funny. All joking aside though, this is a great story that will really touch your heart. So, you NEED to read it. Pretty please? It’s worth it!
I knew I was in for something special when Stroked Long had me in tears by 8% and 12 year old Bodi Banks had already woven his way into my heart. And as the book went on more tears were shed and I only fell deeper in love with Bodi. He's one of those male characters that just completely captivates me...one who, in his own words is "I'm complicated. I'm particular. I'm broken." Bodi is so vulnerable, so tortured, so tormented by his past, he broke my heart over and over again.
But then Ruby enters his life and soon he's starting to feel again, something he never thought he'd be capable of...she brings color and joy to his life, things that he's been missing for so long. Ruby is such a fun-loving, quirky, unique character- the perfect person to bring Bodi out of his shell and back to life.
"I want to know what it feels like to be intimately entwined with someone so pure and true as her. I want to feel her warmth against my frigidness, get lost in the soft, silky feel of her skin and hold her as if she's mine for the keeping."
This book is so much more than your typical romcom, it's really quite special. Stroked Long is beautiful, heartfelt, and totally endearing. It's fun and sexy and utterly delightful. Bodi and Ruby will have you giggling one minute, swooning and fanning yourself the next, and tearing up right after. I could not get enough of these two characters and the journey they took together.
Enter Ruby Hearts. Ruby with her crazy jazz hands and diarrhea of the mouth. Ruby is uncontrollable—and just what Bodi needs. Ruby’s been enlisted to help Bodi run the art foundation he and his sister, Eva, started in honor of their parents. But can Ruby break through Bodi’s armor to really get down to his true self? One that Bodi doesn’t share with anyone, not even himself.
Meghan Quinn broke my heart in the prologue and proceeded to put it back together piece-by-piece in Stroked Long. I loved Bodi from page one. Totally understood Bodi’s need for routine, his need for comfort from controlling the situation around himself. I loved how Ruby came in and ingratiated herself right under Bodi’s skin and into his heart—all without upsetting his carefully planned life…she just understood him. I just really loved them both and hated to come to “The End” of Stroked Long and really can’t wait for the next one in the series.
