Author: Kendall Ryan
Title: Finding Alexei
Series: While this isn’t an official series with a name, there are related titles: Love Machine, Flirting with Forever, and Dear Jane. They can be read as standalones.
Release Date: January 7, 2018
Blurb: He’s bossy, moody, and overprotective.
He’s also a pro athlete who needs to focus on winning games and staying out of the headlines.
I’m fiercely independent and need a man like I need a second period each month.
So when our worlds collide, I never expected him to be the one to jump in and save me. Especially not when my roommate disappears, leaving me with her baby.
I’m clueless about babies—and it shows. Good thing Alexei isn’t. With six nieces and nephews and an apparent hero complex, the dude is both sexy and more than capable. It’s a combination that makes it easy to forget we’re just playing house.
MY REVIEW ~ 4.5 Stars
Alexei is a sweetheart through and through. But, he is still bossy and domineering.
He meets Ryleigh outside of the topless bar she’s working in. He steps in seeing that she’s being propositioned by some creeper. While he’s attracted to her, you also see that he’s just a nice guy that can’t stand not to help out when needed. Ryleigh is very independent and doesn’t exactly feel comfortable taking help from a virtual stranger.
Ryleigh is struggling to make ends meet for herself, and on top of that she’s left high and dry with a baby that isn’t hers. She has a lot going on that she didn’t sign up for! Not to mention she has no idea what to do with a baby. Alexei has loads of experience, though, with his sister’s children, and he’s more than happy to help!
Ryleigh isn’t impressed that Alexei’s a professional football player, but seeing him take care of the baby Ella seriously gets her juices flowing!
There are some heavy issues in this story, but the handling of them is light. Ultimately, despite the language and sex, this book boyfriend just comes across as sweet! There’s no cheating, no triangles, and little as far as drama goes.
Tell us about your current book boyfriend!! We LOVE recommendations!!!
