~*★Release Blitz with Review★*~ Slow & Steady by Kendall Ryan


      Slow & Steady by Kendall Ryan
Release Date: April 12, 2016



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.





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.

Title: Slow & Steady
Author: Kendall Ryan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Series or Standalone: Standalone Series (Alphas Undone #2)
Rating: ★★★★
Reviewer: Diane
I've read quite a few books by Kendall Ryan in the past that were quite very good.  Imagine getting the chance to review an ARC and to actually do it.  This is an honour and privilege.  The intriguing blurb for this story was what attracted me to read it.  This amazing story gets a much deserved 5 star review.

  The ARC of Slow & Steady (Alphas Undone #2) by Kendall Ryan provided in exchange for an honest spoiler free review.

  I like to keep my reviews spoiler free because I hate for the readers to know beforehand what happens with a story.

  All I'm going to say about this amazing story is that Greyson is an ex-navy Seal who is also very much an alpha.  Finley is a widowed mother of a young child who needs to make ends meet by working in a strip club.  We can't forget the cute little baby girl, Maple, who has Greyson wrapped around her fingers.

  This amazing story of courage was so addictive that I read it basically in one sitting on a lazy Sunday afternoon.  I just couldn't seem to want to put it down for very long either.  It's got everything to make this an excellent story.  It's got some suspense, scorching hot steamy scenes, heartbreaking and heartwarming moments that left me smiling at the end.  There are some twists and turns, angst and drama but not overly so, just the perfect amount to keep me captivated all throughout.  Nicely written, excellent storyline with a seamless plot.  I loved this storyline because it has a cute little baby that me feel warm hearted.

  Standalone told in a dual POV with a kick ass HEA.  Although it's the second book in this series, I didn't feel like I missed much.  The author wrote it in a way that the focus was on the present couple.  I strongly recommend this book.  All of Kendall's previous books are all worth it also.
