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 h

This is the second book I’ve read by Kendall Ryan and I enjoyed it! The title for this story is perfect, I couldn't imagine anything else!!The plot is good and I loved the development between the characters, it was a slow build! What I love in her stories is that they are fast paced and hot!
Greyson’s character is what made me fall in love with the story, he is amazing and had me constantly swooning! But apart from being sexy he was also so kind and protective. He was trying to be the ma

From the moment I read the blurb I wanted to read this book. We met Greyson, Nolan’s friend, and I immediately wanted his story. He is a broken man, living with the guilt of a failed mission that killed his best friend. Finley is his friend's widow and now a single mother. They are brought back into each other’s lives when Greyson runs into Finley in a strip club, where she works.

Slow & Steady is a standalone and is part of the Alphas Undone series. So, there’s a single mama and she’s strips to support herself and baby. You know I am ALL over that.

I love Kendall Ryan books, I find them with just enough steam to make me happy, with plenty of romance to make me swoon and the length is perfect that hits the right spot. It’s like receiving a little treat every time I read her novels. Plus her covers are gorgeous.

This is Finley and Greyson’s story.

When Finley lost her husband she never thought she would get over it. Then her daughter was born and gave her a whole new reason for living, and she'll do anything for Maple. Including become a stripper to support her and make sure she always has a roof over her head.

The last person Finley ever thought she would see again is Greyson, so when he shows up at the club she strips at, she's completely caught of guard. And so is Greyson. He never thought he would see that much of his late fri

While I enjoyed the first book in this series (Bait&Switch) I found myself liking this one even more! OMG, Greyson Archer- you my friend are a KEEPER!!! This is a really great book with a lead alpha male that will make you swoon. Not only is he strong and sexy (I mean look at that COVER) but he is also extremely protective and kind.

Slow & Steady is book 2 in Kendall Ryan's Alphas Undone Series, and focuses on the strained relationship between Greyson Archer and his fallen best friend's wife, Finley. This books dives into the raw emotions of life after losing someone you love, guilt, and absolute forgiveness.

To say this book gutted me is a strong understatement. The real life issues that are touched on tore a whole in my heart that, ultimately, only the story could repair. A unique blend of an unconventional romance, t

Now it's been a hot minute since I last read a book by Kendall Ryan that I forgot just how well they can hit the spot.

This more a novella than a book. Short and sweet, Kendall Ryan tried to pack as much as she could into the little space she provided. However, it fell a bit flat for me. The story had such great potential and I would have really liked for it to be explored a bit more.

Finley was a widowed mother of an infant girl, trying to make ends meet through stripping. Grey was her husband's best friend and Sealmate and she blamed him for her husband's death. Grey blamed himself as well.

I enjoyed the first book in this series, and I'm glad that the second installment was a decent read too. Kendall Ryan is fast becoming one of my favorite authors and I enjoy her signature style of writing. You are guaranteed a smoking hot read with plenty of interesting, complex characters, plots with emotional depth, and swoon-worthy leading men who would literally burn the world down for their women.

Grey is no exception. Wallowing in a pit of guilt for what happened with Mason, Finley's deceas

3.5 stars for Finley and Greyson

This has to be my first book involving a Navy Seal. I have always steered clear of them because I'm more on the drug lord, motorcycle club, mafia son side of things in the hot for a hero department. The blurb from this one caught my attention though, I seem to have a soft spot for the single hot mom trying to make ends meet story line.
That being said I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would. Greyson had a lot of attractive qualities which really helped to

Slow & Steady is a perfect title for this book. It described Greyson and Finley’s relationship to a T.

As always Kendall Ryan gave us an excellent storyline and characters who both melted my heart but also broke it at times too. This was a fairly quick read, but I didn’t feel like it was missing anything. This story touched on all of my emotions while reading it and when that happens, it makes it a 5 star read for m

Surprisingly shorter than I expected, with a title that is perfect as the
relationship that developed between the main characters, slow and steady.
Greyson Archer felt responsible for the death of his friend Marcus and wanted to
help his widow through tough times.
Seeing her on stage stripping was too much for him to accept.
Finley did whatever was necessary to provide for her daughter, Maple.

What started out as a connection built on guilt soon turned into something stronger.

Kendall Ryan, you blew this book out of the water for me! I read Bait & Switch (book 1 in the Alphas Undone series) and I wasn't sure if I was going to like the entire series bases on what I had read. I was wrong! Greyson Archer was simply perfect!!! *sighs*

In Slow & Steady we read Greyson's love story. Greyson is one of Nolan's best friend (Nolan was in Bait & Switch). What I loved about Slow & Steady was that we get to know the background of Greyson & Nolan's war days. We g

So when first met Greysen in Bait & Switch you knew that his story would be off the hook, and people...it was so much more!!!



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.



Things are about to go down. He's in this seedy strip club that is basically empty. Biding his time, or at least how long it takes to finish a cold one. When out of the blue he's stuck in time. Staring back at him is none

He blames himself for the death of his best friend on a mission that went wrong. Marcus left behind a gorgeous wife who Greyson knew before the tragedy. Unfortunately she also blames hi

I really liked this one!! Kendall Ryan does an awesome job with her angsty, steamy books, and I think this one may be my favorite one of hers. Grey and Finley had so much painful baggage to move through before they could get to friendship, never mind love. I admit, at one point I stopped reading to go back to reread the blurb to make sure that there'd be an HEA. I just couldn't see how they were going to get there with all that they had to wade through. My heart actually clenched painfu
