BLOG TOUR: All the Pretty Poses by M. Leighton

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.

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.

Speechless, yeah, that is the best way to start this...
You know that feeling you when you finish a book and you are wrapped up in so many emotions that you just can't speak?  Well that is me after finishing All the Pretty Poses. I was eagerly awaiting this novel because All the Pretty Lies was my favorite read of 2013.  I was sitting here wondering...how is M. Leighton going to top ATPL??
Well I should have known better.  All the Pretty Lies shines a bright light and now All the Pretty Poses shines just as bright.  It didn't have to top ATPL because it shines bright all on its own...
I mean, we are dealing with different characters and different storylines in which they are just addicting as Hemi and Sloane.
Who are these amazing characters??
Let's meet Reese and Kennedy....the stars of All the Pretty Poses.
Told in dualing POVs, we get the opportunity to relate and connect to both Reese and Kennedy.  This to me is perfect.  I love being able to be in both their heads. Experiencing their emotions and thoughts.  Each giving you insight in to their own history and background allowing you to see where each has been and where each wants to go.  This tumultuous journey that they have us traveling on kept me swept up in their tale and giddy with all the thoughts of what may come...
With Reese being Hemi's older brother, we see so many goals placed on his life.  He had to be "that" brother, taking over the business, not caring about heart in his chest.
But all those walls he built up over the years can't keep out the one person that his heart could never forget.....Kennedy.
Kennedy has grown up with extreme hardships, leading her to do work her hardest and do the one thing she loves to do....dancing.
When these two run in to each other again, it becomes explosive and lives change, hearts melt, and the romance flames!!
But life storms in on this couple causing horrendous waves of past insecurities and histories to surface.
With unexpected surprises and shocking revelations, does this romance burn out or is it stoked for an eternity?
I absolutely LOVED this story.  I went through so many emotions while journeying with these two...I laughed, I fanned myself from the steamy moments, I got angry, and I cried when my heart was so overwhelmed...
A beautiful love story that carries your heart on an emotional roller coaster ride that you will not want to put down!!
