About All or Nothing 

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 façade 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?

My Review

I have been in LOVE with Braydon since a very particular scene in Working It. I knew then he’d be a book boy I’d love if given the chance to get to know him and I was ecstatic when Kendall said he was getting his own story! Same goes for Ellie, she was an excellent secondary character that totally NEEDED her own story as well. She too, was loved since Working It. She’s intelligent, real, and refreshingly hilarious. Not only is All or Nothing my favorite in the series, it’s my favorite Kendall book. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve loved her previous books that I’ve read, but Ellie and Braydon just had this perfect chemistry. They were each others equals, they were both quick witted and sarcastic; they busted each others balls and called each other out every chance they got. They were fun and sexy together. I loved seeing Ellie and Braydon overcome their insecurities and past hang-ups; their road was a bumpy one but they pulled it together and made it work despite a few twists along the way, which I LOVED. All or Nothing made me laugh, a lot. It also made my heart hurt at times. And in true Kendall fashion, it made me fan myself! I just absolutely loved the story, the characters and the writing. Kendall definitely ended this series on a high note and while I’m sad that the Love by Design series is over, I’m looking forward to see what’s next from Kendall. I love her mix of sass & sexy writing <3

A story of heart-stopping, toe-curling passion by the beloved
bestselling author of 
Hard to Love, Resisting Her, and 

The Impact of You.

Straight-laced and well-mannered southerner Emmy Clarke is out of her depth in New York City’s fashion world, but when she lands a job as an assistant at a modeling agency it
seems like the perfect mix of business and pleasure. Working under the notoriously tyrannical Fiona Stone is a nightmare, but there’s one distinct perk: ogling the ridiculously hot male models who parade through the office—particularly rising star Ben Shaw.

Ben is everything Emmy’s not: exquisitely gorgeous, highly paid, and well-traveled. He’s also got more issues than Vogue. Emmy looks after Ben on photo shoots, but she refuses to become another one of his lusting groupies. Ben finds Emmy’s refreshingly real attitude to be surprisingly attractive.
Against a backdrop of the most fashionable cities in the world, casual flirting turns into an illicit affair, but when Ben’s twisted past is revealed, and the bitter Fiona catches wind of their relationship, their careers and hearts are threatened.

In Working It, New
York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan delivered a sexy

and addictive contemporary romance about Emmy Clarke, a sweet southern girl out of her depth in New York City’s cutthroat fashion industry, and Ben Shaw, the hot male model who introduced her to a world of pleasure. But their story is far from complete…

Emmy Clarke is no quitter. Toughened by her experience working for fashion heavyweight Fiona Stone, Emmy has come a long way from her country girl roots, embracing her fast-paced and unpredictable life in New York City. Though
that life comes with more than a few complications.

First there’s the mystery of Fiona’s pregnancy, which may or may not involve Emmy’s boyfriend, superstar male model Ben Shaw. Emmy has always known that Ben comes with more baggage than she can handle—and not the Louis Vuitton kind. Yet Ben is the only man who has ever loved Emmy for who she is, and she wants nothing more than to do the same for him, even if it means forgiving his past and overlooking their wildly different lifestyles. But when a shocking secret from Ben’s past comes to light, unraveling all of their progress, Emmy must decide if their relationship is worth the fight, or if it’s time to ignore her passion for him and let go.
