Bait & Switch ebook cover Kendall Ryan

Love is a trap, a trick only other people fall for. Former Navy SEAL Nolan has no such illusions. The only things real in his life are his beloved bulldog and the two women in his life. One is soft and innocent, someone he could build a real future with. But the other is dark and gives him all of the wicked things he craves behind closed doors. What starts out as casual quickly becomes complicated. Can he walk away from a sure thing for something that’s foreign territory?

Nolan thinks we met by chance. We didn’t. I sought him out, seduced him, and in return got the sanctuary I needed to survive. But now, impossibly, I’ve fallen in love with him. I don’t care that he has another lover, because when he finds out who I am, it’s going to ruin any chance I ever had with him anyway. She’s the least of my worries.

Bait & Switch is Book 1 in the new contemporary romance series Alphas Undone, which will each feature a new couple.This is a standalone full-length novel. It does not contain cheating.

WOW!!! Kendall Ryan has stepped out of the box on this one. Bait & Switch is so different from her other books but she still gave us what we come to expect with a Kendall Ryan book…..a sexy, steamy, intriguing story and a Hero you can’t help but fall in love with!!!

This review is probably going to be on the shorter side and fairly vague, because this is a book that every reader needs to read for themselves and experience everything it has to offer by themselves. So I am mostly going to stick to my thoughts while reading this book. I’m not going to talk about the storyline much at all because I don’t want to give away spoilers.

What I will say about the storyline, is that, it will keep you guessing and hanging on all the way until the end. Right from the start we know Lacey is hiding something from Nolan, but we don’t find that out until much later in the book. A lot of Lacey’s story doesn’t come out until closer to the end of the book. The majority of the beginning of the book is about Nolan and his interesting lifestyle and how he will incorporate Lacey into his life.

Now I know what you might be thinking….Love Triangle and cheating!!! Well I am here to tell you I had those thoughts as well and was nervous to read this, but knew Kendall wouldn’t let me down, so I jumped in feet first. I am so glad I did, because this book isn’t anything like you would think or expect. There is NO triangle and NO cheating!!! I can’t explain anything more about this without ruining things, so I am just going to say, you’ll have to trust that I wouldn’t lead you astray. Give this book a try, you won’t be disappointed!!

This book was filled with many amazing characters, both Primary and secondary ones. It was fun finding out about all of them and peeling back their layers to find what made them tick. Greyson’s book is next and I can’t wait to learn more about him!!

I will let you know that this story does touch a bit on a BDSM lifestyle, but it is pretty mild, so please don’t let that turn you away from reading this book.

I would recommend this book to everyone who is looking for something new and interesting!! If you are a fan of Kendall Ryan’s, you aren’t going to want to miss this book….to me this is some of her best work to date, and that’s saying something because I LOVE all her books. I love when a favorite author of mine takes a chance on something new and isn’t afraid to step out of the norm a little and give us a different spin to a story.

Definitely a MUST READ!!!!

    Clarification requested on Bait & Switch not being a love triangle.

    Hi, I’ve read goodreads reviews where there are claims of a love triangle and I absolutely Hate love triangles so before I spend my money on a book that is not meant for me, I would like to clarify your meaning of “love triangle” because when I say love triangle, that includes obviously the H sleeping with both women at the same time. If this is indeed what is happening in this story then I would appreciate knowing in advance, because that is one of my pet hates and to me that is indeed a love triangle. I would appreciate the clarification before I go ahead and buy a book which may irritate me because I’m led to believe that the H is faithful to one woman and is not sleeping with anyone else. Thank you in advance:)

      Hello….in regards to your question regarding the “love triangle” in Bait & Switch, I am also not a fan of triangles because usually the one who is stuck between two people is very indecisive and wishy washy. I will say that some people might consider this story a love triangle because two women are involved with the Hero. I will say this, he is NOT sleeping with both women at the same time. He actually stops sleeping with the first woman (Daniella) when he meets the second woman (Lacey) and starts to have feelings for her. He is only ever romantically involved with Lacey. Without giving too much away. Daniella and Nolan have an arrangement so to speak, there are no feelings involved.

      I really hope that helps

        Great, thanks for replying. So he doesn’t sleep with the other girl from the moment he has met the h then.
        I will definitely purchase the book then. Thanks.

        I have just read this book, and I feel totally misled. He’s already known the h for a week and is already into her but still sleeps with his roomate/fuckbuddy. Also, further on he has BDSM sex session with the roomate, after the h.

          I apologize for your feelings of being misled. I don’t know what to say except we all have different opinions when it comes to love triangles and cheating. I personally didn’t see it as a love triangle since he only had romantic feelings for Lacey and he didn’t truly acknowledge those until later in the book. And he was only having sex with one girl at a time. He only has sex with Daniella in that first scene in the beginning of the book. Yes I am aware that he does engage in the BDSM scene later but he never had sex with her then. As for already being into Lacey for a week, I also felt that he was very up front and honest with his situation with Daniella to Lacey so he wasn’t hiding anything. I truly couldn’t say all of this without completely ruining this story and that is something I just won’t do.

          Again I apologize if you feel I didn’t answer your original question well enough and you were misled, that was never my intention. But that just shows that each reader will take something different from each story.

            As I said, I would not have purchased this book if I knew he had sex with the other girl while already knowing and being into the h. One guy, two girls, he has feelings for both (he said he didn’t know if he loved his roommate but did care for her so there were definitely feelings involved there too). He can’t decide between them. 3 people having sex and feelings = love triangle.

            Also, he may not have had full blown sex in the BDSM scene but it was definitely sexual, he was touching her intimately while she was naked and she got off. And I don’t care how “upfront” he was the h was jealous and very unhappy that he was with the other girl and even when she wanted to be the only one he still couldn’t make up his mind. I don’t like this kind of wishy washy H who uses the girls for how it suits him, and that is definitely how I saw this story. Anyway, lesson learnt for me here. Thank you for your feedback.
