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.

In Slow and Steady we get Greyson's story and he has quite the story!!! He is harboring feeling of guilt because of Marcus's death but then he develops feeling for his widow he feels even more guilty. Finley is feeling alone since her husband died but wont take charity from anyone, especially Greyson but as much as these two want to stay away from each other, they can't. 

There was a lot of really good push and pull between these characters. It made for some really great angst. It was a fast paced book with a few hot scenes, and some suspense that put you on the edge of your seat. It was all a good mix to make a great book! I am looking forward to reading the next! If you are looking for a quick, sweet, sexy, suspenseful book I recommend Slow and Steady

Review by: Erin

I loved the idea of the characters. Finley being a widowed, single mom trying to raise her daughter the best way she knows how. Greyson being a man that has been in her life for a long time. A chance meeting that causes their paths to cross again. I loved the fact that Greyson was determined to be in their lives, although in the beginning it felt too much like he was trying to pay penance. I kinda wanted to hate Finley in the beginning. After getting more of the backstory, I understood her hesitance to have Greyson around so much. I absolutely loved Maple! I was so happy that the story ended the way it did.

Is there any one female on the earth who doesn't love an alpha male with a soft side? I really don't think there is.
I loved this book!
From the moment I met Greyson Archer in an earlier installment to this series, he had me intrigued and I couldn't wait for his story. 
Grey is a former Seal, has a mistake in his past that weighs on his soul to the point that he drowns his pain in work, quick hook-ups with random women and booze. 
Grey thinks it's all he deserves and is more than willing to live the life he's sentenced himself to. 
That is until one night in a dimly lit strip club his past collides with is present.
When a sultry dancer makes more than just his heart stand up and take notice.
Finley captured my heart the moment I met her. 
She's strong and fierce. Even though her body isn't tall or strong, her spirit is Amazonian! She's got a little girl and Finley is doing everything she can to provide for her child. And if that means twirling around a pole every night then so be it. 
Dancing pays the bills..mostly. And just because she's up on the stage doesn't mean she's a whore. She knows there isn't a knight in shining armor waiting to sweep her off her feet.
When Greyson makes a bid to be in her life, in her child's life, Finley objects. Loudly.
Except there's something about the man that speaks to her in a language that only her heart understands.
The thing is...can Finley find room in her heart for the man that she's so angry with?
Slow & Steady is another steamy read with a couple that will make you sigh out loud as they navigate forgiveness and new beginnings.

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.
