All the Pretty Lies

“Live, no regrets”


Sloane Locke has led a sheltered life.  However, with a history like hers, she can understand why her brothers and her father want so much to protect her.  She has gone along with it for twenty long years, but those days are over.  For the girl who never makes promises, Sloane has made a pact with herself that things will change on her twenty-first birthday.  So when the clock strikes midnight, Sloane strikes out to spread her wings and break a few rules.


In addition to inking skin, Hemi Spencer possesses many talents. Controlling himself has never been one of them.  It’s never had to be.  He’s lived a life of indulgence for as long as he can remember.  Right up until tragedy struck.  Now, he’s nothing but controlled. He’s a man on a mission, one who will let nothing and no one stand in his way. 

Nothing in their lives could’ve prepared Sloane and Hemi for what they’d find in each other—distraction and obsession, love and possession.  But the one thing they can’t find is a future.  Neither one has been totally honest.  And they’ll soon learn that the devil is in the details.  In the details and in the lies.

How far will two people go to live in the now when the now is all they’ve got?

M. Leighton is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Wild Ones and The Bad Boys romance trilogies.  She is a native of Ohio, relocated to the warmer climates of the South, where she lets her mind wander to romantic settings with sexy Southern guys much like the one she married and the ones you'll find in her latest books.  When her thoughts aren't roaming in that direction, she'll be riding horses, swimming in ponds and experiencing life on a ranch, all without leaving the cozy comfort of her office.

 I am so nervous about writing this review.  You know when you come across a book that you just LOVE and you really hope people will see how much you LOVE it?? Well, yeah, that's me with ALL THE PRETTY LIES.
You see, truthfully, LOVE doesn't really describe the way I feel about this book.  At least not in it totally. ATPL is that book...THAT book....
The one that you read and it reaches so far down in to the core of your soul and then it wedges it's way in, shoving other things around and then it nicely sets up its permanent residence.  Yes...ATPL  will forever be with me.  After weeks have gone by after reading it, plus having read other great books, ATPL still plagues and haunts my thoughts...ALMOST daily...
Am I surprised?? No, not really...We are talking about a M. Leighton book anyway...I know I will love it just because she wrote it...but I just need to say....I have a huge book hangover...
YES...and to say I have a book hangover of ginormous proportions would be saying it mildly, but yes, a book hangover is truly what I have.  But, I believe now, reading ATPL is really about finding that book that is a missing piece to your soul.  Yes, there will be several in my reading time...but this one has found its spot and nothing will be able to take its place.
*inhales deeply*
So, now that I have tried to explain how much this book affected me, I hope to give you some insight to just why it is so wonderful.
Well, let me start by saying that M. Leighton is just pure genius.  Her storylines are brilliant and she knows exactly how to capture you right from the beginning.  ATPL does just that. We meet Sloane, a girl that is ready to tell off her over protective father and brothers and just take a shot at freedom.  She is snarky funny, a little naive and really just a genuine person.  Not once during the whole book did I find myself getting irritated with her or wanted to slap her because she was annoying.  She was strong and vulnerable at the same time and in my opinion to create a heroine that exhibits all these characteristics and not get on my nerves some time during the book shows M. Leighton's ingenuity.  Now, of course we know that these amazing HOT romantic novels aren't all about the heroine.  YES, that means there is a SMOKIN GORGEOUS hero that will bring ALL YOU LADIES to your knees... OH YES...LADIES...listen up...I believe I have found my true love book boyfriend...his name is Hemi.  *fans self* I may have to take a minute as I have begun to get a little excited thinking about Hemi again....*cranks up air conditioner and sprinkles water on my face*
Ok, sorry.,..I have gathered myself now...
When we meet Hemi, tattoo artist, he is this mysterious guy that just instantly screams for Sloane's attention... (mine too!!) The time these two spend together provides so much sexual tension you can just feel it oozing off the pages.  And then we come across that ONE scene...yes...that ONE scene that turns everything around in which you start to get all giddy and excited because you know the JUICY FUN scenes are coming...
And we all know that M. Leighton writes some of the SEXIEST SCORCHIN HOT scenes out there....
ATPL is not all about the romance...M. Leighton provides us with a suspenseful tale that is full of twists and turns, making sure to keep you guessing at just how everything is going to turn out....
I was biting my nails, holding my breath trying to figure out how this book would end and let me just say...PERFECTION...*muah*
ALL THE PRETTY LIES is pretty much one of my top 5 reads for this year....Heck it could probably be number 1 itself...
So, make sure you get this book and find out for yourself just why I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVED this book....
