You’ve met Ben Shaw. Now meet Braydon Kincaid, the devil-may-care male model who nearly stole the show in Working It by New York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan.

As one of the world’s most sought-after male models, Braydon is no stranger to the finer pleasures in life. The last thing he wants to do is limit himself, especially when it comes to women. His best friend, Ben, might’ve settled down, but Braydon doesn’t want to waste his youth on the messy complications of commitment. He wants fun. He wants easy.

Ellie isn’t looking for a casual relationship, but her tough and sassy personality instantly attracts Braydon, who proposes a “friends with benefits” arrangement. Unable to resist the powerful pull of the charming bad boy, Ellie eventually relents, though she longs for all-consuming love.

As the two spend more time together, Ellie soon realizes that Braydon’s posing skills extend off the runway. His carefully crafted façade masks a secret hurt that he’s reluctant to share with Ellie, even as they embark on a passionate affair that sends them hurtling toward a fate neither expected. Can Ellie risk her heart while she waits for Braydon to let her in, or will she be forced to demand all or nothing?

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

Jaw meet floor, Braydon is back! I’ve been dying for All or Nothing since I found out it was going to be about the ever so sexy Braydon, I mean c’mon that threesome in Working It left us wanting more from Bray and we finally got it. In the series finale we get to know Braydon and Ellie, Emmy’s best friend, on a more intimate level. Ellie always seemed to want to rip Braydon’s head off but you knew she felt the heat between them, you could feel it coming off the pages. It was only going to be so long until she finally caved, especially since their best friends were getting married and they’d always be around each other.

Ellie was tired of the same crap different guy situation so when the super-hot model proposes to have a “friends with benefits” relationship she decides to give it a try, she can’t stand Braydon but she knows there is an intense fire between them that she wants to explore. With any friends with benefits relationship you know there are feelings bound to happen and huge problems to ensue and that’s just what Kendall Ryan gives us. Ellie begins to get to know the real Braydon Kincaid, the thoughtful caring and definitely sexy Braydon, her feelings get larger than life, but Braydon only wants a casual fling his skeletons start slowing releasing themselves and they are not what you expect. There’s more than meets the eye when it comes to Braydon.

There is one thing Kendall Ryan for sure knows and that’s how to turn on the heat and make you sweat. That girl, I swear is the queen of steam. From the very beginning of this series you can tell that is clearly true and it stays true to the very end. She knows steam and angst and really how to play with those little heart strings of ours. The Love by Design trilogy has been one crazy ride that I’m glad I took and definitely believe everyone should jump on, only if you can handle the heat.

  1. I am such a sucker for friends with benefits tropes. Like majorly. I recently read The Hook Up by Kristen Callihan and I ate it up. I haven't read this series, but this one sounds SO GOOD! I like the steam within reason. :) Great review!!
