From his dirty-blond hair and breathtaking smile, to the abs from heaven and the irresistible V in his waistline, everything about Bodi Olympic-gold-medalist Banks screams hot piece of @$$. Yet there’s more. Dark shadows lurk behind his soulful, serious eyes. I’m enamored. He’s captured me. How can running an art foundation with Bodi Banks turns into a slow-burning, epic romance, even though he tries to push me away at every chance? How can I stay away from a broken, routine-driven man whose soul cries to be forgiven for a crime only he believes he committed? Or is that a lie? 5 stars!! I've been waiting for Bodi's story since I read Stroked and it was definitely worth the wait, yet another fantastic book in the series. Stroked long is a brilliantly written book filled with plenty of humor, passion and finding love. I love that this is written in both points of view and of course the ending is great. I also can't wait to see what's next for the series!! Bodi Banks has been living in the safety of his routine for as long as he can remember and he avoids relationships that way no one can notice the way he obsess's about things and ask questions. He's happy that way until Ruby. She enters his life in a flash of colour and quirks that she makes no apologies for. Bodi doesn't do social situations but now him and Ruby are working together and it doesn't take long for him to start craving their time together. Ruby makes him feel alive like he hasn't felt in so long and it isn't long before the attraction takes them beyond friends. Bodi feels like a ticking time bomb trying to be the perfect boyfriend and hide his OCD from Ruby and it only takes an unlocked door and his sister not ringing for him to explode. Can he trust Ruby to fix his heart or will he lose her forever? Ruby loves working at the boys and girls club but it wasn't really where she thought her art would take her so when her friend Eva asks her to help with the foundation she jumps at the chance to do something creative it also doesn't hurt that she has to work with Bodi. The more she gets to know Bodi the more she discovers just how much of a complicated man he is but there's something about him that she can't get enough off and it doesn't take long to fall for him. Only problem is Bodi won't trust her enough to share his past that's impacted so much on his future. Will Ruby forgive him after he runs away?
