He never wanted to be a hero…until she needed him to be.
It took Kennedy Moore years to put her life back together after Reese Spencer shattered it.  But she did.  Now, years later, strong and independent, she is in pursuit of a single dream—to dance with the Altman American Dance Theater.  Unfortunately, Kennedy is learning that a girl from nowhere with no money and no contacts might never be able to reach her goal.  
That is, until Reese reappears, offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that Kennedy just can’t refuse.  In exchange for working on his yacht for a few short weeks, he’ll get her an audition with the famous dance troupe.  All Kennedy has to do is keep her head down, work hard and resist Reese.  That sounds easy enough, right?
Reese doesn’t want to make it easy for Kennedy.  Seeing her again has started a fire in his blood—an unwelcome one.  It took him years to forget about her before, so this time he has a plan.  It’s simple:  Get Kennedy on his yacht, seduce her, get her out of his system, move on with his life.  That sounds easy enough, right? 
But the one thing Reese didn’t plan for was Kennedy herself—a girl so strong yet so broken, she makes him want to rescue her, to take care of her.  To save her.  Even if he has to save her from himself.

Deliciously mesmerising. Decadently tantalising.

After reading and completely falling in love with Hemi in ALL THE PRETTY LIES, I was excited to see what Michelle Leighton would bring this series next but in all honesty, I was convinced that there was no way she could top it. I mean, book #1 is one of the very best books that Michelle has released so it would have to take something really special to top it. And ALL THE PRETTY POSES is just that special something.

Reese is Hemi’s older brother and the Spencer men must have some pretty powerful genes because I fell for Reese just as hard as Hemi – and that was damn hard! But then again, this is a Michelle Leighton book, and she has yet to write a book when I haven’t fallen for the leading man. Or the secondary men! Sig (Sloane’s brother) is FANTASTIC! He was like an excited little puppy (albeit a pervy one) when he was around gorgeous ladies, and I am SO happy that he’s getting his own book.

“Well, that’s a damn shame. But if you ever change your mind, I’d be happy to lend you my lap or help you with your costumes. You know, whatever you need.  I’m a public servant at heart.”- Sig.

When Reese sees Kennedy for the first time in fourteen years, it sets his blood alight. The connection and chemistry were there from the very beginning and only intensified as the story went on. If you’ve read multiple books by Michelle, then you will know that she’s famed for having one standout sexy scene and one twist in every book. Well in ALL THE PRETTY POSES, the sexy scene was insanely hot (and oh my lord – he’s pierced!), but there wasn’t one twist. There was multiple.

As I was reading I kept thinking “surely there’s nothing else that could happen to these poor characters?”, but then BOOM! Again, I was hit with another twist. I was constantly on my toes with this book and ALL THE FEELS!!! I laughed, I loved, I overheated, and I cried. My heart broke repeatedly for Reese and Kennedy and I think that this is quite possibly the most emotional book that Michelle has written.

In the absence of that kind of true and perfect love, there is only devastation.- Kennedy.

There are characters to love, characters to hate, and even times when the characters that you love deserve a chair to the face. Michelle Leighton is one of my few Go-To Authors that never fails to bring the goods. Packed with twists and tears (both happy and sad) until the very end, ALL THE PRETTY POSES is a book that everyone should read at least once in their lives.
