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.
When I got the chance to read and review All The Pretty Poses, I nearly squealed with excitement!!!!! I mean it’s Michelle Leighton! Her books are right up my alley, you know you’re in for a freakin TREAT!!! And I was BLOWN AWAY!!! A HOT, delicious male and beautiful, strong woman…just the way I like em!!!
After reading All The Pretty Lies and LOVING IT, I could not wait to get my hands on this book! We met Reese Spencer in the first book and I was definitely intrigued and left wanting more. How could you not? He is walking sex! He is arrogant, (although he says he’s not), rich, and absolutely gorgeous. I want a Reese!!!
Reese is the owner of high-end dance clubs and has built a successful, lucrative business. He loves the thrill of it all—the power, the notoriety, the women, the money. He truly believes this is his life—until Kennedy Moore walks back into it.
Kennedy Moore has not had it easy. She had a crap childhood and worked really hard to create a new life for herself, one that makes her happy. She struggles with her past—one that included Reese, her first love and who made many empty promises. To make ends meet, she works at Exotique, but aspires to be a dancer some day.
The universe throws a twist in their lives and fate has other plans. One night while performing at Exotique—owned by none other than Reese Spencer, fate steps in and throws the two of them together again. He happens to be there with his brother, Hemi and his girlfriend, Sloane.
To say they are both thrown for a loop is an understatement. The heat and connection between them is as strong as ever and Reese doesn’t want to let her go. He decides to take matters into his own hands. He offers Kennedy a job on his yacht for the summer, an offer she can’t refuse—an audition with the Altman troupe—a huge opportunity that she’s dreamed of her whole life.
The cruise brings them closer together. Kennedy tries to protect her heart, to fight the feeling of attraction and desire she feels. It’s impossible.
“…As for when you end up in my bed…you can rest assured that it won’t be because you’re doing your job. You’ll be there because you can’t stand not to feel my hands on you. Because you can’t stand not to have my mouth on you.”
Kennedy finally gives in and they fit together like a perfect puzzle. She is so afraid to risk another heartbreak, but she can’t stop the feelings she’s having. The love she feels is too strong, too powerful.
“Reese is the one thing that I look forward to every day, the one saving grace this life has for me. Without him, the world is an ocean of despair intent on drowning me. He’s like my life preserver, the one thing I can cling to that doesn’t drag me under.”
There are twists and turns and you cling to your kindle loving each and every moment. WOW!!! I’m in love. Michelle really created a hot masterpiece with this book. There was love, heartbreak, heat, angst, and a whole lot of incredible steamy scenes. I loved this book and you don’t want to miss it!!!
About the Author
I was born and raised in the United States, and I’ve lived in several of the fabulous fifty. Though I currently live in the deep South, I spent much of my childhood up North and hope to return there one day. A few other things about me: I believe that sometimes you have to look really, REALLY hard to find the good in people, but it’s there. I believe that I’m shrinking (I swear five years ago I was two inches taller). I believe my husband is quite possibly one of the most amazing men in the entire world (I can’t be sure because I haven’t met all of them). I believe coffee and chocolate, when combined, could be the basis for world peace. I believe that Jesus rocks and communism doesn’t. I believe that white makes me look fat and black collects lint. I believe summer’s too hot, winter’s too cold and fall was made for football. I like dogs better than cats and the first movie in a trilogy is invariably the best. But most of all, I believe that love conquers all.
