Blog Tour and Review: Slow and Steady by Kendall Ryan


When Greyson tosses $20 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.

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.

Slow & Steady is the second book in Alpha's Undone Series.
I would give this book a 4 stars and highly recommend to others.
This is a book about forgiveness and grieving after a tragic loss of a lover, a friend, a hero.
Although it is a second book it can be read as a standalone.
Bait & Switch was the first book if you want to get your hot little hands on the whole series.
Even though this book does touch on grief and tragedy it also is full of some steamy hotness that you don't wanna miss!

Greyson has been dealing with guilt and grief for years over a loss that was out of his control... when he runs into the woman that he holds the guilt towards he gets the protective instinct going once again... but his is in for a battle and this maybe another war he can't win.

Finley has been dealing with grief and hatred for years because of an epic tragedy her family went through, and the man responsible for it all will come crashing back into her life like a hurricane.. can she see past the betrayal and finally let herself live again... or will she fight it till there is nothing left to have?

Get to one clicking to see what happens in this book... you will not be disappointed. I look forward to much more from this author in the future!

Slow and Steady by Kendall Ryan is a sweet love story that is full of toddler sweetness, unexpected love between two people who have chemistry out the wazoo, and all of that was mixed with a dash of crazy and turmoil.

Finley lost her husband and was now trying to raise her daughter alone. The last person she ever expected to see during her stripping job was the man she blamed for her husband’s death, his old SEAL friend/teammate Greyson. There is no denying that the man is sexy and she is having a hard time pushing him away when he pushes and barges into her life.

Greyson just wants to make right the wrong he did her. Even he blamed himself for Marcus’s death, and Grey can make it up to her by helping to take care of her and her toddler, Maple. That’s the only reason he’s there…right?

With sparks flying, will they be able to keep a wall between them? You have to read to find out! 4 stars and I recommend you one click today!

Slow and Steady by Kendall Ryan is the second book in the Alpha Undone Series but can be read as a standalone. Grab a tissue when reading this one because I promise you will need it. I fell in love with Greyson and Finley, just as you will when you read their amazing story. This book was a 4 star read and I highly recommend it to others!

Greyson goes to a strip club for the first time in years after a bad day at work never expecting to see the widow of his Seal buddy on the stage working.

Finley was pregnant when she lost her husband in the war and has struggled to make ends meet ever since. Making her daughter the only priority that matters, Finley takes a job dancing at a strip club a couple nights a week so she can spend her days with her beautiful baby girl. She never expects to see Greyson in the audience and she isn't sure how she feels about seeing him.

When Greyson starts coming around Finley doesn't want his handouts but it's more than just helping the widow of his fallen brother for Grey. The relationship that they slowly build is not one that was ever expected but exactly what they both needed.
