Review Tour : Slow & Steady by Kendall Ryan



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.



Slow and Steady is the type of story that creeps up on you, with so much emotion, action and passion packed into this fast paced read, you will be completely drawn in. 

Greyson Archer is a man going through the motions of living life. Guilt eats away at him daily. A ex Navy SEAL, his life consists of work, home and the occasional night out. All that changes when this sexy solider walks into a club and sees the woman who is the reflection of his guilt and the one person who has the ability to cut him off at the knees. 

Finley Sutton is barely holding it together. Dancing at a strip club to pay her bills is not how she saw her life, her perfect life until one day it was shattered to pieces. Every fiber of her being hates her job but not the dancing .. that is her only escape from reality. She needs to do what she must to survive, it's not only herself she needs to worry about anymore. Everything changes when the man responsible for her pain and the destruction of her dreams shows up her club. 

Life will never be the same for these two. 

Grey and Fin are explosive together. Sexual tension runs rampit along with feelings of anger, resentment and fear. They challenge one another while the push and pull between become undeniable. Grey will stop at nothing to make the wrongs right and have the woman who haunts his dreams ... HIS. 

Will they be able to over come the obstacles before them or will Finley's doubts and fears end them before they even have a chance. Will Grey's fierce desire for redemption be enough to break down the walls around Finley's heart? Or will outside forces keep them apart forever?

Slow and Steady .. sometimes is the only way to a perfect love. 

Read and find out how two people find love, peace and acceptance all the while turning pain into love. Blush worthy scenes, nail biting instances and swoon worthy moments are peppered all through out this read.

4 slow and steady stars.
