My Rating :
He’s hot. Like, stop breathing kind of hot with his killer body, vivid blue eyes, and constant five o’clock shadow.
Did I mention his body?
Watching Hollis Knightly, Olympic diving gold medalist, man-pony specialist—and cocky bastard—stand up on the diving platform in nothing but a small piece of Spandex? Yeah, I’m beguiled.
And easily seduced.
I want to keep things light but he won’t leave me alone. And hell, if he’s not wearing me thin.
What is supposed to be a simple summer fling with a very hot man, has now morphed into a f*cked-up mess of feelings, attachment, and dare I say it…love. But I don’t do relationships. And Hollis Knightly does.
Stroked Hard is a comedic masterpiece! It mixes real life issues (such as abandonment) with humor, sexy men in speedos, and devilishly funny stalking tendencies. This book – and the rest of the series – had me giggle snorting from start to finish. Hollis, the stories hero, is wickedly charming and completely incapable of understanding the word no. He sees what he wants, goes after it, and won’t stop until he gets what he wants. The stories heroine, Melony (aka Melon to Bellini) has a fear of relationships and has no plan of ever getting involved in one. She has serious abandonment issues and a closed off heart. This is quite a unique aspect of the book as normally the tables are turned in other romances. So, this adds a unique quality to the book, making it stand out from the rest. So, what happens when Mr. Romantic and Ms. Unromantic come face to face? A battle of wills and wars of the heart! Overall, this is a fantastically funny and downright charming book. Readers who love men with big hearts will want to pick this one up. Our hero in this one is a man after our own hearts. Why? He loves romance novels, and is a one-woman kind of man, and he DOES the relationship thing. Sounds like the man of many women’s dreams, right? HE IS! Honestly, I cannot say enough good things about this book (and series) and highly recommend each and every book to fellow readers. The men in these books are endearing, unique in terms of who they are, and downright mouthwatering. The heroines of each book are perfect as well. Each have their own qualities and readers will quickly feel like they are reading about their own best friends. So, make sure to grab you copies of this amazing series. You will NOT be disappointed. In fact, I can almost guarantee that once you read about these sexy men and their lovable ladies that you will immediately want to read more of the authors work. Highly recommended!
