When Greyson Archer tosses a twenty on the stage of a strip club, the last thing he expects to see are the hauntedgreen eyes staring back at him.

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.

Kendall Ryan is an expert at writing books. Each one is hot, steamy, full of romance! Slow & Steady was filled with great tension. It had me wanting to reach into my book and smack characters. Finley was a stubborn woman but I understood her pain. Kendall Ryan formed this story beautiful. Greyson had me interested since I met him in the first book, Bait & Switch. 

This books starts off quick. The two characters, Greyson and Finely, were both part of each others past. A very difficult tragedy binded them together. Finely has had a rough life but she managed get past each day. Greyson has a good life and he decided that Finely needed help. It felt like his duty because of the past and how intertwined he was with Finely. Will the past always be present or are they willing to move forward together?

Greyson is a total sweetheart but he is also all alpha. It's amazing the balance that was put in this character. It was perfection. He was sweet but powerful when need be. It was an amazing combination. It made me want to keep Greyson for myself. Dare I say that I loved him more than Nolan?! Oh gosh. If y'all met Nolan than this is quiet the confession! I loved Nolan but something about Greyson has me wanting him more!

Finely on the other hand was a little hard to love because of her refusal of Greyson. She saw Greyson as a sort of betrayal. I totally understood that! BUT I wanted her to give in to her emotions and raw passion. She's a stubborn woman but she had someone else to look after so I understood her hesitation. Kendall did amazing with the time frame of this sensitive situation. It didn't feel rushed at all. It felt perfect.

The title Slow & Steady is exactly how the book was presented. It was slow build up but the sexy scenes were anything but slow! It was beautifully written. Congratulations Kendall on writing another amazing book!

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.
