Title: Finding Alexei
Author: Kendall Ryan
Publication Date: 7 Jan 2019
Synopsis from Goodreads
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.
There are some very serious health concerns when reading Finding Alexei, so prepare yourself for some seriously combustible moments and imminent ovary explosion 😉 Alexei is the real deal, super hot and a heart of gold.
Ryleigh is strong and independent and knows how to take care of herself which is a good thing because she doesn’t have a single soul in the world to help her. Working at a topless bar to make ends meet, Ryleigh doesn’t ler her life get her down even though life keeps throwing problems at her. Like heating, rent and not to mention being left with a friends baby to take care of. Now most people would have turned that little baby over to the authorities, but not Ryleigh, that girl steps up and goes the extra mile.
Alexei is drawn to Ryleigh after attending a bachelor party at the bar she works at – all his protective instincts and alpha tendencies come out to play with the mere presence of Ryleigh. Alexei dons his knight in shining armor persona to help Ryleigh navigate her way with the baby and the other struggles she is currently facing. Give this man’s mamma a medal ‘cos she done raised him right 😉
Even though the feelings between Ryleigh and Alexei are the real deal, Ryleigh can’t help but worry about the differences in their lifestyles and the inequality in their economic status. Although I could understand her concerns, it is obvious that she isn’t the type of person to take advantage and Alexei is very aware of that fact.
Despite a few hiccups along the way, Alexei and Ryleigh navigate a fairly clear path to finding their HEA with a little help from friends and family.
Let me just warn you, there is a possibility you may need tissues at one point in the story especially if you are a parent – just saying 💖
