Release Day Blitz + Review: All or Nothing by Kendall Ryan

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 fa├žade 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?

Well I am going to go on the limb here and say this is MY FAVORITE book of the Love by Design series. I absolutely LOVED this book! When we are first introduced to Braydon, I was hoping he would get his own book! I mean, don't get me wrong, I love Ben, but I REALLY love Braydon. 

Ellie and Braydon are friends with Emmy and Ben. When they meet at their friends wedding, HOLY CHEMISTRY!! I loved how they fell into each other.  I enjoyed the story as their 'friendship' grew.  It’s mingled with heavy emotions as they develop their love which added a nice depth to the story. Ellie doesn’t do casual hookups and Braydon never does relationships. The attraction between them is immediate but so is the mutual respect and the fact that they actually really like one another.  They immediately agree to keep things between them as friends only. The more time they spend together, the more they start to have feelings for each other. First trust issues hinder their relationship and they must learn from it. Ellie and Braydon make big mistakes in denying themsleves how great they are together! But once they finally got on the same page... everything seems to work out. 

I really enjoyed both of these characters.  I loved Ellie's sarcasm and feisty character. Braydon just being the sexy guy that he is, and their playful banter and let's not forget, the "off the charts" HOT sex scenes, makes this book have all the ingredients for it to be an absolute MUST READ!!

I enjoyed this book SO MUCH. This book just proves that no other couple deserves love and happiness more than Ellie and Braydon. Their love story can be a wreck at times, but it is also powerful, emotional, and beautiful. Their story proves that some people truly belong to one another. Kendall Ryan is my FAVORITE author. I probably stalk her on Facebook at least twice a day! Thank you for letting me read the book in advance!! <3
