Reese King: Olympic medalist, underwear model, Greek god.

His body is chiseled from rock, sculpted by the weight room, and refined by water.

On a daily basis his skin is completely bare for everyone to see, tan and defined, only covered up by a minuscule piece of spandex. There is no denying his sex appeal.

I hate to admit it, but I’m head over heels infatuated with him.

"I follow behind him, like a lovesick puppy, wishing he would give me a little more attention. May be a pat on the head, a lick to the neck, a penis to my vagina. Anything would really do right about now."


➦This sports romcom was a pretty entertaining read for me. The sexual chemistry between the main characters was electric, some moments were really emotional and at times I even found myself tearing up. But for the most part I was giggling and chuckling, of course!

Bellini ruined this book for me, simple as that. I don't think I've ever hated a character so much before in my life. She was absolutely horrid! And the sad fact is, she wasn't even the main character, just a bitchy secondary. A secondary character should not be able to ruin a book so much for me, but Bellini overshadowed the romance and story of Paisley and Reese to the point I just couldn't ignore her.

I think Bellini was supposed to be so crazy that it was funny, but for me she was just so cr

This was one seriously sexy book! Reese was a super hot alpha hero and the story was thoroughly entertaining, well except for all of the annoying parts with the over the top reality star, Bellini.

I'm afraid she's probably in the next two books since all of the Heroines are linked to her because of her show but oh well, maybe Meghan will make her character more likable in the next two books. :)

Here are my overall ratings:

Review @ Vanilla & Spice Books


My love for the quirky humor and sweet story of Hustler by Meghan Quinn & Jessica Prince had me excited for this one. The premise of a hot swimmer who has earned himself the moniker of The Silver Stroke because he can't win an Olympic gold medal for the life of him? Count me in! So why only 3 stars? I'll explain.

Reese has been a swimmer since he was a teenager. He was an Olympic contender twice and while he managed to win many silver medals h

Never let it be said Megan Quinn doesn't know comedy, snark and swoon worthy romance. She has the type of humor you pray your bestie would have when out drinking or shooting the sh#t after a crazy day.

If I didn't like Reece and Paisley so much, I would have quit. Bellini was a nightmare. She was over the top annoying and I could have reached through my kindle and choke slammed her. Her presence was unnecessary in my opinion and ruined it!!

Just throwing this out there right away, I loved Reece & Paisley. If this was a book with just two POV, Reece & Paisley's, I would have been head over heals in love. But of course it couldn't be that simple. Had to make it three POV's.

I have reached the conclusion that I absolutely trust Meghan Quinn. I know that she will always deliver a combination of funny, over the top drama and swoony romance. You know you’re in for a ride when you read her books. You know you’re going to get some really funny stuff and you’re amazed at the stuff that comes out of her mind, lol!

Overall Opinion: This was a little disappointing. I had some issues with the OTT villain, Bellini -- she was just too OTT at times. Getting her POV just made her even more obnoxious, but it was a different technique the author used so I can appreciate that. I also had some issues with the pacing and lack of closure, and was confused by a scene towards the end (see below sex scene spoiler) that I felt was completely unnecessary. Overall it wasn't anything outstanding, but it was ok for wh

I’m so disappointed. This book has all the makings of a fantastic story. It kind of reminds me of a cross between an Olympics-based romance and one of my favorites, The Devil Wears Prada—well, the movie version at least because I didn’t read the book. Don’t judge. It’s a shame that one character can ruin a good story.

The big problem is the antagonist, Bellini. It’s fine to have an unlikable villain, but she is one-dimensional and so over-the-top that it’s unrealistic. There are chapters

I get why this book was liked by so many people, but I just couldn't!
I hated that Bellini character so much I just couldn't finish the damn book. Maybe if I liked the MCs more, I would have tried, but can't say they were too interesting either. I mean, they feel like tools! And maybe they get better, or evolve, or whatever, but I don't have the patience to wait and see.


It got the 0.5 star because well, it's hard to make me hate a character as much as I did this chick.

I love Meghan Quinn’s romantic comedies. Her humor is belly-laugh inducing while being slightly over the top (that’s what I love about them!). When I heard she was doing a sports-themed romantic comedy, I knew I had to read it. The fact that the athletes are swimmers? Total bonus!

I worry about Meghan Quinn…

I worry about the kind of mind that can come up with the kind farcical situations she dreams up and I pray to god that nobody lets her drive a vehicle.

I would also like to one day not love what she writes. I’d like to just one day go: ’Eh, it wasn’t so great.’ Ya know, just for shits and gigs to keep things interesting. But as soon as I think I know what to expect from this woman and her quirky humour, she surprises me again. Meghan Quinn is queen of the Rom-Com!

Reese is a super hawt Olympic god, however he's never gotten a gold medal and is know as The Silver Stroke because he chokes at the big games. He's also "dating" a raging b***** who's a reality TV star people love to hate. (I just hated her.)

Reese, Paisley and Bellini are all integral to the story, and at the same time add different elements to the story. I am going to separate them as Reese and Paisley worked for me, while Bellini didn't really.

Reese was interesting, the idea of an elite athlete who is frustrated at always placing 2nd is intriguing. You are able to connect with him a lot more than the usual athlete heroes, as he feels authentic and reachable. The idea that even in wh

Having read this author's two other books and completely loving them, i must say i surprisingly didn't love this one so much. Although there were bits of her classic funny and quirky moments, this story still lacked a deeper plot line and characters. I skimmed through a lot of this book just to see how it all played out in the end.

What started off as an insta-lust became an over dramatic secretive relationship all to save a job position while bowing down to ONE OF THE MOST UNPLEASANT, VIL

Because it took me FOREVER to finish I can't really give it more than 3 stars

I can't exactly pinpoint what didn't work for me, because it kinda had a bit of everything I like in a book. But somehow I found myself doing all kinds of choirs instead of reading, and that's not a good sign. I guess I was just a bit bored throughout the whole thing.
