Book Review: All the Pretty Poses (ARC provided)

All the Pretty Poses (Pretty, #2)All the Pretty Poses by M. Leighton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My first M. Leighton book was All the Pretty Lies and I really enjoyed it…Hemi and Sloane were both enjoyable characters with compelling backstories and it was a fast read. However, All the Pretty Poses knocked my socks off! I couldn't get enough of this book. It was fast paced and hard to resist. I sat at work trying to not think about what would happen next and I finally succumbed and finished it at work!

Reese Spencer is rich, handsome, and privileged. Kennedy Moore could argue that he might be heartless as well. Being center stage at an exotic dance club was a means to an end for Kennedy. She used dance as an escape from a life and past she chooses to forget. Little does she know that one night will change everything as she comes face to face with Reese Spencer….the boy who promised her so many things one day in the woods. The boy she loved.

Reese is floored. As he watches the dancer and realizes it is Kennedy, the girl who he still thinks about after 14 years, Reese is floored. He never imagined seeing Kennedy in one of his clubs or he can't believe that she is dancing for a living. He wants to know why Kennedy is dancing, what she has been doing with her life. He wants all the answers so he makes her an offer she can't refuse.

The heat between Reese and Kennedy is palatable. It oozes off each and every page. Kennedy tries desperately to keep it professional between the two of them but her feelings can't stay buried with Reese pushing to be with her. He is hard to resist and Kennedy isn't so sure that she wants to even after all the hurt he caused when they were younger. Reese assumes that all he needs to do is get Kennedy out of his system and he can move on with his life. He is sorely mistaken and it is great fun to see him realize how much he needs Kennedy in his life. The emotional ride that Kennedy and Reese take together is fantastic. Their backstory seems simple at first but as the book progresses, it turns absolutely heart wrenching. I couldn't put the book down!

This is a must read for 2014. I now must read all of M. Leighton's books because I am a fan!
