BLOG TOUR!! All the Pretty Poses by M. Leighton!

 Welcome to the All the Pretty Poses by M. Leighton blog tour! Don't forget the to check out the giveaway!

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.

My Review
I was so excited to get Harrison, better known as Reese, Spencer's story. He was so awesome in the first book. Strap yourselves in people, this one is EPIC! Reese is a rich business man with a very successful business. He is at one of his establishments when the girl that comes out to dance is someone he knows! Yes, Kennedy is very good at what she does. Dancing has always been something she has dreamed about. Maybe not this kind everyone has to start somewhere. Kennedy and Reese have a past....a very intense past. One full of love, sex, loss, and damage. Reese has a very enticing business offer for Kennedy. One that involves yacht's, dancing, and tropical retreats. Spending time in an enclosed smaller space with Reese isn't exactly something Kennedy wants to do especially since he's declared he will have her and she will be begging him for it. Will Kennedy make it through this trip? Will she be able to stay away from Reese? Will their pasts ruin them?

We still get to see Hemi and Sloane for a bit! I was so glad about this because I loved them. They are on the yacht for a bit on their way to Hawaii for a vacation. After they get off, Reese's client's climb aboard and the real work starts. There is so much tension between Reese and Kennedy. Sometimes good sometimes bad but, definitely explosive. Kennedy feels like she is just another notch on Reese's belt and doesn't know of she wants to re-open her Reese wounds. He doesn't know everything that happened to her after he left her. She also doesn't know his secrets. Are their secrets going to ruin everything?

The romance is hot, hot, hot. OMG! Reese just might be my favorite Spencer. He is a big sexy ball of man candy. He is so confident in himself. Well maybe cocky is the better word. Whichever, I would get on his boat anytime. I am glad that we got to read from both Reese and Kennedy's POV's. There was a lot going on in their heads. I mean these two are so perfect for each other its ridiculous. They have hot moments between them when they aren't even touching each other. 

The twists and turns in this one blew my mind. Seriously, I was shocked. There are so many secrets and issues from their pasts that I never, ever saw coming. This one will leaving questioning everything and with your mind blown, so prepare yourselves! Best book I have read in a long time. Go get your copy!!
