My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Meghan Meghan, Meghan….I love you! You never cease to amaze me. Stroked was a jovial, torrid read. Paisley’s character came across as gentle yet fierce.
In Meghan fashion, the book was full of humorous and embarrassing moments. Bellini, on the other hand, was foul. I wanted to punch her on several occasions.
Bellini is a spoiled, rich brat that miraculously has been cast in her own reality show. The producers think pairing her with Reese King, an Olympic silver medalist, in a “fake” relationship, would increase the ratings.. At thirty-two he is hoping to secure his place on the Olympic swim team, for the last time and finally claim the gold, that’s always managed to evade him. His publicist believes that the show will help boost his popularity.
When Reece meets Paisley, the attraction is evident. Only problem, he is her boss and must maintain the false relationship with Bellini, throughout the remainder of the season. They try to maintain a platonic relationship, but the heart wants what it wants and they fail miserable. Forced to sneak around, the world starts slowly crashing on top of them.
I loved the story. I loved the character dynamics. Only area that bothered me was there was a LOT of sex. Don’t get me wrong, I love a little nookie in my book but these two were insatiable.
In the end I highly recommend this book if you wish to laugh till you cry, all the while fanning yourself in the process.
Favorite Scene: Old lady on the airplane.
Unless it’s erect, supercharged, and ready to burst, cover that shit up because a flaccid penis is just a soggy meatball sub, balls sagging behind, and hopefully devoid of parmesan cheese.
”Finding your soulmate is never easy, Paisley. The luckiest people have to work at it, because once you find that true match, you will be that much more grateful for the journey you took to find them.”
