When Greyson Archer tosses a twenty on the stage of a strip club, the last thing he expects to see are the haunted green eyes staring back at him. Finley should be home raising her infant daughter and baking cookies, not tucking singles into her G-string and giving lap dances.
Greyson can't deny that he'd like his own private show, but there's not a chance in hell of that happening. The last time the former Navy SEAL saw her she was dressed in black, holding a folded flag and sobbing that it was all his fault... and he agreed with every single word. He couldn't do anything to help her then, but he can now.
Finley deserves better than this dingy club, and when an obsessed customer crosses the line, Greyson leads the rescue and will do whatever it takes to make amends for their broken past.
He never expected to want to settle down, but with Finley, everything is different. For the first time ever, he can breathe. But Greyson will have to fight for what he wants in order to keep the woman with the green eyes he's dreamed about so often.
Slow & Steady is book 2 in the Alphas Undone series, but can be read as a standalone novel, as it features a new couple.
I love Kendall Ryan’s Alphas. And I think that Greyson, is now at the top of the list, bumping Nolan out of first place. Fiercely over protective, and bossy, he did not take no for an answer. When he saw someone that he cared for struggling he stepped in and took charge. I loved him. I loved this story, and Finley….
Finley. I absolutely adored her. As a single, widowed mother; she was strong because she needed to be. She was a firecracker. Sassy, and did not take any crap from anyone, especially Greyson.
When Greyson finds Finley working in the last place he would ever suspect, he decides step in and help them any way he could. Whether she likes it or not. Both Finley and Greyson are still very much on their own path of grieving and trying to make it through life. Grey blames himself for things that happened on a mission that took Finley’s husband and so does Finley. Infact, she want’s nothing to do with Grey, which makes for some fabulous reading!
I absolutely love Kendall Ryan’s writing! Reading her words are so effortless, and I get lost in the story immediately. Her alpha’s are always very hot and swoony! I can never wait to get my hands on a new Kendall book!
Y’all should read Slow & Steady! It’s the second book in a series, but is a COMPLETE standalone. You can definitely read it without reading the first book Bait & Switch, as it follows 2 completely different characters. If this your first Kendall Ryan book, then it’s a fabulous place to start!
It was nine o’clock on a Saturday night and I was totally out of my fucking element. A bottle of red wine tucked under one arm. A bouquet of wild flowers in the other. A condom tucked into my wallet, just in case. I was in foreign territory, and my entire body knew it – tense shoulders, my heart beating like a drum, and arousal barely contained beneath the surface. Finley was standing at the doorway, watching me with a confused expression. She looked gorgeous, makeup free, pink-painted toes, hair mussed and loose. Little cotton pajama shorts and a tank top that hugged her lush breasts. “Maple’s not here.” She said the words, but she knew as well as I did I wasn’t here for Maple. “I know that.” My voice was sure and confident. “Then why are you … oh.” Finley shifted her weight, her eyes dropping from mine as she saw the wine and flowers. She could read it all, plain as day. I knew she could see my intentions, my uncertainty, and underneath it all, my desire. Maybe it was the desire to fix everything I’d broken, or maybe it was just my desire for her as a man desires a woman. Normally when I felt that primal urge for sex, I headed to West’s bar. I’d pick out a woman for the night. Share a few drinks with her, a few laughs. Later, we’d head back to my place and fuck until dawn. And that was it. I’d be set for a few months. This … with the courting and the nerves … it was nothing like my standard operating procedure. I’d never felt so stripped bare and vulnerable. Never put myself out there so completely with a woman before. But then again, Finley was unlike any woman I'd ever met. And she was still just standing there. “Can I come inside?” I asked, heart in my throat. She didn't say anything. But she opened the door wider. With Nolan’s words ringing in my ears, I stepped over the threshold, sure that whatever happened tonight had the power to heal us both.
