Title: Bait & Switch
Series: Alphas Undone #1
Author: Kendall Ryan
Release Date: February 9, 2016
Love is a trap, a trick only other people fall for. Former Navy SEAL Nolan has no such illusions. The only things real in his life are his beloved bulldog and the two women in his life. One is soft and innocent, someone he could build a real future with. But the other is dark and gives him all of the wicked things he craves behind closed doors. What starts out as casual quickly becomes complicated. Can he walk away from a sure thing for something that's foreign territory?
Nolan thinks we met by chance. We didn’t. I sought him out, seduced him, and in return got the sanctuary I needed to survive. But now, impossibly, I’ve fallen in love with him. I don’t care that he has another lover, because when he finds out who I am, it’s going to ruin any chance I ever had with him anyway. She’s the least of my worries.
Bait & Switch is book one in the new contemporary romance series Alphas Undone, which will each feature a new couple. This is a standalone full-length novel. It does not contain cheating.
I am a huge Kendall Ryan fan and was super excited to hear about this new intriguing series of books! She did not disappoint!
This story was steamy, angsty, and full of sexual tension. Who knew touching could be so hot?!?
“As Nolan drove, his hand found my knew and rested there casually. It was crazy how that one small touch both heated my blood and made me feel safe.”
Nolan is an former-SEAL who now works as at a security firm. He is a born protector and has used his instincts often. Daniella is the last woman he saved. She is a sub and into BDSM and together they have a hot and kinky relationship. That is until Lacey enters is life.
“I still didn’t have a handle on what was going on here, but temptation whispered to me over the rush of her heartbeat. It was crazy that even knowing it might not end well, I wanted her.”
Lacey has secrets of her own. She is looking for someone to keep her safe. What she didn’t expect was the level of chemistry and attraction she would have with Nolan.
“You’re my light, my warmth, and my sunshine,” he continued, stroking my hand. “You chase away the shadows in me. And she’s my dark, submitting to my every wicked desire I have inside me. My yin and my yang.”
So, is Lacey okay being the other woman? What happens when her secrets come out? This story was intense and I couldn’t put it down. I loved the suspense that was woven into the heat and emotion. I am super excited for Greyson’s story next!

There are people that know they love an author and can forgo a synopsis before diving into the book. I am not one of them. No way! I always read the synopsis, it helps me get a vague understanding of what's to come and since I'm extremely impatient, it's cruel for my enjoyment. Sometimes, even with readying the synopsis, the book will run over you full force, reverse and run over you again. This book was one of them! Within the first few pages, the hotness level was off the charts.
"She wanted him to fill her and mark her skin, just as he'd marked her heart."
Why yes, that is exactly what I want. How did you know? Kendall Ryan knows all, that's how.
If you haven't been introduced to Kendall Ryan, now is the time. The writing in Bait & Switch was much stronger than Kendall's usual! There was suspense, love, chemistry, jealously and holy love triangle.
Above everything, there was an abundance of unadulterated seduction. Many times throughout the book I had to put my Kindle down and just say "what the f*ck". I honestly didn't know how the story could end in a positive light. Of course, I should not have doubted the brilliance of this wonderful author. She pulled it together beautifully and in doing so, it became her best book yet. I highly recommend this book!
