    Finding Alexei is by Kendall Ryan. All I had to do is look at this cover and know that I wanted to read this book! I mean, just gaze at that! If you read Dear Jane, you may have previously met Alex. I didn’t read it and it was still perfectly fine.Ryleigh is barely scraping by as it is. She lives in a tiny apartment in a terrible neighborhood. She works at a topless bar. She keeps telling herself that she is a waitress, not a stripper. The tips...

    ★4.5★ "In addition to being a badass football player, he's also good with babies and is an amazing lover." Finding Alexei is a contemporary romance delight with one smoking hot professional football player, a sassy independent woman, and a sweet baby! Ryleigh is struggling to make ends meet. Waiting tables a topless bar and grill, she is struggling to pay her rent and her ex-roomie left her little baby for her to take care of. Alex Ivan comes...

    Alex has to keep himself in check and stay out of trouble, or risk losing his contract. But when he sees a man hassling a women outside a club, he intervenes. Rayleigh is very proud and doesn't like to ask anything at all of others. She's fiercy independent but life has thrown her a huge curve ball when her former roommate, who still owes her for skipping out on back rent, asks to stay the night (with her baby!) The next morning, she sneaks out, ...

    Masterpiece this book was not.I also didn’t find it adorable.I found it disturbing.****SPOILERS****1. No matter how desperate you are, would you just go live with a man you met 40 minutes ago with a baby?? Really?2. No matter how desperate, would you take a lift from a man you met 30 seconds ago? Who you met in front of a topless bar?3. I dunno why either of them fell for each other. Actually I understand h’s POV more. He was at least useful ...

    3 StarsOverall Opinion: I think many readers that like instalove and low conflict books will love this! The H was about as perfect as you can get, and there's a cute baby too! Does it get deep and meaningful? No, but I don't think that's the kind of book it is. It's a feel-good book that provides an easy route to an HEA. It actually reminded me of Aurora Rose Reynolds books with the instalove and protective/take charge H. So if you're a ARR fan -...
  • Melanie (mells_view)
    Kendall Ryan gets about 5,000 sweetness points for Finding Alexei! Alexei swoops into Ryleigh’s life unexpectedly, but exactly when she needs him. Even though she’s reluctant to admit that. She has a not so glamorous job, and a baby girl who isn’t hers to take care of. Alexei is supposed to be keeping his head low, after getting into a bit of trouble at work, but when he sees Ryleigh, he gets a vibe that she’s worth any trouble she may po...

    This is the cutest book I have read in a very long time. Not an author that I have read before but have quite a few of her books on my Kindle I think that Ms Kendall has a new fan. Ryleigh is a young woman essentially alone in the world who is struggling financially working in a topless bar she was just about making ends meet when her roommate disappeared leaving her with a large rent bill to pay and a two month old baby Ella. She is rescued from...

This sports romance was light, carefree, and oh so swoony. You will find yourself turning the pages so fast because you cannot get enough of this fun filled romance that had layers of banter, humor, hope, love and most importantly steam. So if you are l...

    I’m so taken away by this book and all the feels it gave me, gah. ARC received in exchange for an honest reviewRyleigh is a special kind of woman. She’s strong and very independent. She’s had a hard time in life, money is short and her ex roommate ditched her with her baby to look after even though she knows next to nothing about them but she takes it all in her stride. She works hard to make sure the baby gets what she needs even if it mea...

    ***4 Stars*** After meeting Alexei in Dear, Jane, I needed more of the man, so when it was announced that he’d be getting his own HEA I couldn’t have been more excited and Finding Alexei did not disappoint. It’s all kinds of sweet, smexy, swoon worthy and majorly ovary obliterating!I loved Alexei in Dear Jane. He was such a good, and true friend to Jane, it was hard not to fall in love with him and now after getting to really see the man’...

    I never add spoilers in reviews, but I feel like I can't recommend anyone not purchase this book without doing that. So here I go. (Don't read on if you don't want any spoilers, but also keep in mind I read just the first chapters, so it's not much spoilers. I'm just trying to save you.)I read 3 chapters of this book and it went like this: Girl with beautiful blue eyes working at a topless bar encounters middle aged man on the sidewalk outside sa...

    I absolutely adore Kendall Ryan's heroes. They are alpha down to the tips of their toes but also so caring and protective. Alexei Ivan is most definitely my favorite hero Ryan has written to date!! He is all growly hotness with a heart of gold and an inner core of strength and kindness. I loved the way he was with Ryleigh and the fiery chemistry and banter between them! GAH!! HE WAS EVERYTHING!!After playing knight in shining armor when first mee...

    This review was originally posted on (un)Conventional Bookworms *I received a free copy of [title] from [publisher] via Author. This has in no way influenced my voluntary review, which is honest and unbiased *3.5 starsFinding Alexei was a very sweet romance, with characters I came to know and enjoy. However, there was a side-plot I would have liked to see more about, as it was important to the overall plot.A solid story, kind of like a modern-day...
  • Andrea Fleury
    A waitress and a football playerRyleigh happens to be standing out in front of a club when Alexi comes around the corner. She's being cornered by a guy. One look at Ryleigh and Alexi know she has to help her. Next thing he knows he is her knight in shining armour. As with every book Kendall did an amazing job. Her books are in my top 5 favorite authors.

    3.5 Stars Kendall Ryan has this niche for writing sweet and easy romantic stories. And she nails it on the head again with Finding Alexei.Finding Alexei is very quick and breezy read, that Kendall can easily make into more, but chose not to, which is ok. It didn't hurt the story in any way, but for me is what prevented me from loving this book. We met Alexei (Alex) in Dear, Jane but if you have not read that one, do not worry. He was just a secon...
  • Becca - ★Wicked Quests of a BookNinja★
    Blog reviewWell, this book was a total joy! I really, really do love everything Kendall Ryan writes, but I think I just have a new favorite book from her, and it’s called Finding Alexei.This book has everything I love about a romantic story – it’s full of hearts, it’s also emotional and the sexy time is totally off-the-charts! The chemistry between the characters is something else. They’re just so perfect together!Alexei is every girl...

    Who doesn't love a man and a baby?! Granted it's not Alexei's baby but what a guy... a hero... a protector... and let's not even discuss how sexy and hot he is?!Ryleigh is struggling to get by... working at a topless bar and hardly making any money while taking care of a baby that her friend just leaves with her and takes off.Alexei takes them home to get them in the warmth, to help her with the necessities because she clearly needs the help but ...

    Sometimes, it is fun to read a book that you just enjoy. This was one of those books.I liked both Alexei and Ryleigh. I mostly believed in their characters. Yes, the story was maybe a little far-fetched...but, I have had things happen in my life that I would not believe were I to read them in a, the fact that it didn't seem like an impossibly meet cute was good enough for me.As always, this was enjoyable. It was sexy, I liked the charac...
  • Chiara
    I'm a sucker for sports romance and I must say this one was adorable! Ryleigh is an amazing heroine. She's having a tough life, working at a topless bar and barely making it, but when her former room mate disappears all of a sudden leaving behind her 2-months daughter, she doesn't hesitate even for a second and starts taking care of the baby. One night she's rescued from an handsy customer by Alexei, famous NFL linebacker, who offers to take her ...
