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 fa├žade 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:  All or Nothing is the third book in Kendall Ryan's Love by Design Series, yet can be read as a companion novel.  I haven't read the first two books in the series and thoroughly enjoyed All or Nothing, which has me itching to go back and read Working It and Craving Him.  Braydon Kincaid is pure sex on a stick.  He's a hot male model,  has a reputation as a lady's man, and can melt you into a puddle with his smile.  The book begins at Ben and Emmy's wedding, the main characters in the first two books of the series.  Ellie is Emmy's best friend, while Braydon is Ben's friend and fellow male model.  Emmy somehow manages to find herself in a compromising position with this hot guy who she would normally never consider dating.  When Braydon proposes a friends with benefits type arrangement, well......let's just say Ellie is tempted with something she can't resist.  Braydon makes it clear he isn't in it for a relationship, despite what his words and actions seem to portray, but what he choose to do if his only choice is all or nothing? 

I loved both Braydon and Ellie's character.  I mean what's not to love about Braydon.  Ellie was one of those characters that you immediately connect with.  She was funny, had a great personality, and had a few issues with her self-esteem related to her appearance, which made her seem even more real.  She is also a microbiologist and so totally opposite from Braydon, but they just work.  The relationship and chemistry was off the charts hot, and I loved watching it progress.  The banter between the two is fun and hot, as is the romance.  I especially loved the epilogue and seeing where this couple, as well as Ben and Emmy from the first two books, ended up.  If you enjoy contemporary romance, then All of Nothing is something you will definitely want to check out.
