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?

~~ 5 “Panty Dropping” Stars ~~
Well….What a way to finish a series!!! All or Nothing is the third and final book in the Love By Design series and it was a great way to end this journey. This was another EXCELLENT book by Kendall Ryan. Her writing never ceases to amaze me. Her books just get better and better!!! I Loved this book. It had me laughing out loud on many occasions, had me blushing, and even had me fuming at certain times. The banter between Braydon and Ellie was hysterical and I loved how all of the characters interacted with each other. This was definitely a quick read…I finished it in less then a day, but I was so anxious to read this story that I really just couldn’t put it down. I am truly sad to see this series end, because I know I will miss all these characters immensely.
We met Braydon and Ellie in Working It (Book 1) and then continued with them in Craving Him (Book 2) and then finally got their full story in this book. I loved Ellie and Braydon from the very first time I met them. Their characters were funny, witty, sweet, and charming. And their chemistry was off the charts. Ellie was a great heroine…not only was she an amazing BFF for Emmy, but she was an independent woman who stood up for what she wanted and wasn’t willing to take any less. Braydon…what can I say except I would drop my panties for him. He is the right mixture of Dominant, possessive, sweet and sexy!!! I was glad we finally got to know about his background and why he chose to close himself off from having a meaningful relationship. Ellie and Braydon truly were meant for each other. My only complaint is I wish that the ending wouldn’t have been rushed. Things happened in the last chapter and the epilogue, that I wish would’ve happened a lot sooner and then could’ve been built upon. With me saying that…it still didn’t take away my full enjoyment of this book.
I was thrilled that we got to continue the story of Ben and Emmy as well. They had a pretty significant part in this story and it was great to see where they ended up. I liked how Kendall wrapped up both couples stories in the epilogue…It truly was a great finish 🙂
This book could be read as a stand alone, because the storyline is separate, but I would suggest reading this series in order so that you can get the full effect of Ellie and Braydon characters and relationship. Their story truly is a journey throughout all three books.
I would 100% recommend this book and series to anyone who is a fan of Kendall Ryan and also anyone who is looking for some HOT male models and the girls who tame them. These books won’t disappoint!!!!
