He never wanted to be a hero…until she needed him to be.
     Strength…   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 realize her goal.      That is, until Reese reappears, offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that Kennedy just can’t pass up. 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?     

 Weakness…   Reese doesn’t want to make it easy for Kennedy. Seeing her again has started a fire in his blood—an unwelcome one—so Reese 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.

Being a fan of M. Leighton I was super excited to read this series.  I really enjoyed the first book and was eager to start All The Pretty Poses.  This book did not disappoint, in fact it superseded my expectations by leaps and bounds!

You catch glimpses of Reese in book one as Hemi’s big brother, but this book you get to know more.  And I would like to thank the book Gods for that..  He is a rich, dirty talking, possessive man that doesn’t take “no” for an answer that fell hard years ago for the “girl the next door”

That girl is Kennedy, she lives in the home-town of the only home Reese has ever really known.  Not being close to his mother and father, he found home in the comfort of his Uncle’s estate and the staff that worked there.  The summer before college he falls hard for the slightly younger girl that lived on their property.  A night of firsts, a morning with no goodbyes and a heart hardened.  Set-up perfectly for my perfect type of book! Winning..

Forgetting has been Reese’s way of life for as long as he can remember, struggling for his father’s acceptance and always being just out of reach..  A deal for more time is made and Kennedy is thrust into a whirlwind of a working situation that includes all things Reese..but just for the summer? Learning to let go of who he thought he should be and coming to terms to the man Kennedy always knew he could be is the moral of this story


Pasts are revealed, futures are forged and there is hot, sweaty, possessively growling sex..check please!  Loved this book and I recommend it to anyone that enjoys a good “you finally figured your shit out” love story!

She relocated to the warmer climates of the South, where she can be near the water all summer and miss the snow all winter. Possessed of an overactive imagination from early in her childhood, Michelle finally found an acceptable outlet for her fantastical visions: literary fiction. Having written over a dozen novels, these days Michelle enjoys letting her mind wander to more 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 wild horses, skiing the slopes of Aspen or scuba diving with a hot rock star, all without leaving the cozy comfort of her office.

About Michelle: I love coffee and chocolate, even more so when they are combined. I'm convinced that one day they could be the basis for world peace. I also love the color red and am seriously considering dying my hair.
