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.

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. I loved the relationship and the way it developed between Greyson and Finley. Their relationship, while a slow burn, heated up at the exact right moment! It didn’t happen overnight and the two didn’t fall in love from the get go. Rather, they had to overcome some obstacles (which are really sad btw) before coming together. I loved how sweet and charming Greyson is. He takes on quite a big role after reentering Finley’s life and this totally melted my heart. There is nothing like a guy who is good with kids in these romance novel, gah, so sweet! Finley is also a great character. While at first I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about her I really grew to love and understand her as I read. This is a woman with baggage. Baggage that is so heartbreaking that it will make readers emotional. She puts up a strong front but like anyone, she craves loves and protection. In all honesty, I grew to love these characters so much that I didn’t want the story to end. Usually with standalone novels I don’t develop an intense connection with the characters because we don’t get to see them grow throughout a whole series. So to say that I will miss them is an understatement. BUT, I do look forward to the next book which will feature a new couple… I am SUPER excited!

The plot is amazing in this book. Young woman who will do anything to keep her family going after she loses her husband, strong alpha male that has ties to her, love hate relationship that will leave you squirming, and an overall beautiful love story within the mix. This is only my second Kendall Ryan book but I am now becoming a HUGE fan because it is clear that she knows what she is doing when it comes to writing these amazing books. Knowing this, I highly recommend getting into this series. It is fast paced, fill with sexy alpha males, and beautifully developed relationships. The writing style is superb, the length of the books is just right (not too long and not too short), and readers will feel immensely satisfied at the end. The only downfall is that we only get these characters in one book (BOO- I will MISS them). But then again, it’s not so bad because we have new characters to look forward too!

Overall, this is an easy 5-star book for me (one of my favorites of the year so far) and I highly recommend it! Readers won’t be disappointed because they will fall in love with the characters, and get the desired HEA in the end.

While this is the second book in the Alphas Undone series it can be read as a complete standalone.
